  1. So then will I still have a chance to get the wood grain version from a local retailer like gamestop or best buy? I had to pass on the pre-orders from the Intellivision website because with the loss of orders at my work from the shutdown I wasn't sure if I'd still have a job when the ship date arrived. Only to have our supervisor tell us that things are looking better than originally predicted and they might actually have to call back some of the people who took the voluntary layoffs - at which point the pre-orders had been closed.
  2. dangit, I wanted the founder's edition but of course they had to start the pre-order while I was at work

  3. I miss being able to hit "see all replies" and have them pop up in the sidebar instead of a whole new page.

      In Status Updates? I think that's being worked on. You're not alone.

      I'm going to look into it, but I wouldn't get your hopes up.

  4. So, you've just saved Shere Khan from air pirates and as a reward he's offered to give you absolutely anything at all as a reward. What would you ask for?

  5. Let me ask you something. If you worked in a warehouse/supply company and found out that your insurance deductable was being raised to a measly $200 per year, would that be enough for you to cry holy hell and go on strike, thereby forcing the manufacturing compay that is your biggest client to completely shut down from lack of parts?

      Sounds like a bargain to me. I forget how many thousands our deductible is. We also pay an exorbitant amount of money for the policy. Basically it's there in case we get hit by a bus or something major, otherwise it's just a shit ton of money down the drain for nothing.

      Full picture and more info needed. Are they raising the insurance deductible while still handing out $50k executive bonuses, for example? My company just outsourced and laid of 155 people, and not only still gives $50k executive bonuses to 45 people but gives them company paid Limousine rides to/from the airport. :(

      Ok, when I posted that I was a bit peeved and going only off what I heard at work. (and ok, i did exaggerate a bit about this completely shutting us down, but we are getting extremely short on parts and if this goes on much longer it might still happen)

       

      But if the numbers in this news article from the Star Tribune are accurate, I would still love to have their health plan.

      I just had a mostly lakto-ovo vegetarian weekend and was ridiculed to no end by my friends. I had to convince them that on Monday, I'll eat meat again.

      I get ridiculed for being a vegetarian sometimes, but everyone should do their own thing! I even Prefer veggie burgers! I know, I'm weird, but I won't make fun of anyone else's choices...

  7. Found The Real Ghostbusters while clicking through netflix for something to watch. Lorenzo Music as Peter Venkman. For all the cartoons I watched as a kid, he's the only voice actor from back then who I can identify just from his voice alone.

      I saw the Bird of Kildarby and Lorenzo Music really let out his Garfield when he yelled for help.

      Lorenzo Music is pretty easy to pick out, and so is Rob Paulsen. Yakko warner and Raphael (and much more)

  9. Went to the movies today and saw the trailer for the new live-action Battle Angel movie, and I'm like WTF? What's the point in using cgi to make her eyes bigger?

  10. Hmm... is it worth it to trade in my ps4 for a ps4 pro?

      I did it and I'm not sure it was worthwhile. But I don't have a PlayStation VR. Diablo III in 4K looks good, and MLB The Show in "high performance" mode has a high framerate at 1080p, but it wasn't cheap.

      Well, my 1080p tv got fried a few months ago and I ended up buying a 4k tv that was on sale. Went from an Xbox One to a One X but couldn't really see any difference, even with Dark Souls remastered.

  11. Are keyboards with e-ink caps a real thing yet? Something like that would be perfect for running emulators of old computers, but I can't find any links to any real products, only reports from several years ago that this or that company was working on it.

  12. Don't you just hate it when your apartment building gets bouight up by a property management company that then proceeds to throw everyone out so they can remodel and triple the rent?

      That's a concern that pops into my head every time my building's landlord comes around to show off the building to prospective buyers.

      Reno-victions. There are lots of them happening in the Vancouver area due to the soaring real estate prices.

  13. Well now, ain't that a dilly of a pickle!

      If you're in a pickle, I'd say that's a pretty big dill.
