that pissed me off so much, universe was actually getting quite good....Someone needs to invest in a real scifi network that only show...oh i dunno....science fiction?
A good starting lineup would be stargate, a star wars tv series, A reboot of firefly, and some good old fashioned early 90's anime....
I think many SciFi and Anime fans have gotten to the point where they just download or stream or buy DVDs/BluRays (or some combination of the 3) of things they want to watch, which is why I don't think a new SciFi network could be successful. The consumers have moved on to other media.
That said, I wonder why SciFi producers in the west haven't tried to copy the OVA model used by some in the Anime Industry, where some Anime goes direct to DVD. They wouldn't have to deal with having to get their show on a network, and there have been successful OVAs that have multiple (albeit short) seasons.
No one use IE any more.
Except there are many corporate intranets that are IE only. Hell, I've seen SharePoint 2010 instances that don't even play well with IE 9...
Virginia, huh? Hmm... What else could be in Virginia, I wonder...?
No one, really. Just the CIA, the Pentagon, a lot of the Federal Bureaucracy (although much of it is moving back into D.C.), The FBI Academy, lots of Military Bases, most of the Government Contractors, etc.
GOOGLE is manufacturing hardware??? SINCE WHEN???
They own Motorola Mobility, who does make Hardware.
APPLE is a software company???

Your comment is a perfect example of COMPLETE IGNORANCE
4/10. See me after class.
I'm sure it will somehow take AWS down
As a DC area resident who works in Reston (where Amazon's servers are), signs point to YES. Especially since DC area residents have already settled into "PANIC!" mode which includes posting on Facebook on how everybody is going to die and how the Mayans were right, buying every roll of toilet paper and every tube of pimple cream in the grocery store, filling their Viagra prescriptions so they can die happy, hiding in their basements, and emerging 2 days later asking "Why was everybody panicking?" This process also includes everybody jamming on to I-66 at the same time (more so than usual). This response is the same whether it is a hurricane, or just a dusting of snow. Doesn't this make your confident about the people who run your government?
Which version of Halo?
Halo 3 was panned for its graphics at the time, and that was 2007.
Halo Reach is a couple years old now
Halo Anniversary, the latest game, IS an upscale of the original 2001 game, runs the original graphics engine alongside the new one, and as such is buggy.
I love the series, but its not a good example to judge the graphics capability of the console as newer games tend to find ways to suck every last ounce of power out of the console
Who in their right mind would play such obvious trash?
Surprisingly, lots of people.
People pull knifes on each other over Magic in my hood.
Is there ANY good reason to go into that hellhole of a store?
That one time when I can't find something at Staples/Office Depot, am too lazy to drive to MicroCenter, but want it NOW, so ordering it from Amazon or NewEgg is not an option.
This happens about once every 2 years
