Bedrock is fairly impermeable.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I recommend Minecraft. Sure you can "cheat" and find your save files to copy before you make some decisions (e.g. my decision to blow up my dungeon was not a good one because I blew up myself into a pool of lava, destroying my diamond picks). However the way the game is structured, each decision is final and without a restore point. And it has absolutely infinite replayability, I think there are zero limits to this sandbox type game.
I hate that too, and always the boom destroys that 6 block diamond deposit, and then you have to remember which freakin' direction your spawn point was from your awesome homebase.
Either that or you do like I did and dig underneath lava and have the lava destroy all the diamond blocks. No! Stop! Argh!
I search for 45 minutes for diamond to make picks and shovels so I can search for another 45 more minutes for diamonds.
At least I used to. Now I just fire up Cartographer and use stone picks to get to the good stuff. It feels like cheating but it does help get rid of the "grind" feel a little bit.
IF I = "0" GOTO 20
If you want to get well trained using standardard marksmanship techniques I highly recommend Appleseed, www.appleseedinfo.org. The goal is 4 MOA accuracy which is more than enough to hit a 20 inch target at 500 yards. You can do Appleseed using a
I wonder how many younguns won't know the tune to sing this to. Made me laugh, we used to play the original song really loudly on the 8-track in my parent's Ford Capri while driving to the beach. Thanks for the earworm!
It sounds exactly like Spore was supposed to be.... a really huge sandbox with tons of possibilities.
They make these things for sailplanes called winches. I don't know if they apply to motor powered aircraft, because a sailplane needs very little force to keep it aloft, but it is a consideration.
Lousiana in the summary, Louisiana for real. Sorry had to nitpick but c'mon there are only 50 states you would think all U.S. residents would know how to spell them! Or was this outsourced to India too?
Maybe it is because there are so many responders with 6 or 7 digit UIDs. But we know that soon enough someone will come along after this post with a 4 or 3 digit UID just to say they can. I was here at the beginning, wish I knew enough to sign up when I started reading Slashdot!
I agree the game was too short and except for level 16 (I think, it is very long and requires good timing for half-stepping through a portal to press a button) I got through it in a few hours.
I disagree with everything else, I really thought it was a fantastic game. For an added challenge, download the Flash Mappack. That will provide a few more hours of fun and there are some really challenging puzzles in there. That is, ones I absolutely could not figure out until I looked at an online walkthrough.
Your technical notion of troubleshooting is entirely much more complicated than the consumer/user version of troubleshooting. What you described as "choose a random item from a list" is exactly what MS and any other consumer company label as troubleshooting. Look in the back of many device manuals and you will see a section labeled "troubleshooting" where it gives a description of the problem and a list of things to do/try.
Actually race cars usually have regular uncambered tires but they set up the suspension so the entire wheel is cambered. In a design like this it looks like the tire itself is precambered without requiring the suspension/rim to be tilted.
Specifically, note in the Wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_savings_account that 1.1 Million people have purchased into their own HSA accounts.
HSA (individual owned) and HRA (employer owned) savings accounts allow you to save money up to certain IRS limits per year. In the case of the HSA, this is your money and is not owned by the employer. That means you can take it with you if you go to a new employer, or if you lose your job etc. This is pre-tax money that is yours to use on most IRS 213(d) expenses. This money does not expire at the end of the year (you are thinking Flexible Spending Account, which is different).
