Re: What's up?

And for the record, my liquidation cleared just over $3200. I bought an engagement ring for my girlfriend and am going to have to figure out how to propose to her. I also paid off some debts and am working on what to do with the remaining $1.5k. I also no longer work for Best Buy. I was offered a m...

Wow, that's a very nice run, especially considering that you only have 12 skills, and some . . . um . . . interesting selections among them. Right off the top of my head, I'd say that Superhuman Cocktails, Amphibian Sympathy, Smooth Movements, Sonata of Sneakiness, and Fat Loot will all help you sli...

Harvard goes for it on 4th and 22. Still the right call? Also, Stanford goes for it on 4th and 8 from their own 22. In Stanford's case, they were down by 3 points with ~3 minutes left in the game. I don't think it was unreasonable to go for it, because Cal's RB was eating the Stanford defense for d...

Now I do feel my advancing geriatric status, since the last FPSs I've played, apart from the Wolfenstein port on my iTouch, were System Shock 2 and Deus Ex.

Strangely, while I've never played Perfect Dark, I've read two of the Perfect Dark novels. . . .

I'm curious -- how many of you have read the Ian Fleming novels? I actually found them kind of boring. With the exception of "Moonraker," I'd say that they were the rare instance where I've read the source material and seen the movie, and invariably preferred the movie. The only other example that e...
