Other Games / Insurgency
« on: January 28, 2014, 06:19:46 pm »
Anyone remember Insurgency source mod? It was really hot for a while and some of us here played it in beta. It had enough glitches to make it cumbersome to play at the time, but it seems they've kept with it and made a standalone game. The best part about the beta was that it was very competitive and mostly realistic (a few hits will kill you, only one life, etc.). It seems they've built upon their strengths and released Insurgency as it's own game. Check out the steam page/videos.

Yup! Found out Amanda is pregnant last Thursday after us trying for nearly a year. Also found out my cousin is preggers the same day as we told everyone. It's been a great day.

Please refrain from Facebook posts until you see one from me. Not everyone knows yet and we'd like to tell them.

Sports Fans / The Giants are World Champions again!
« on: October 29, 2012, 01:13:29 am »
I haven't posted much about baseball here lately because of the lack of activity/interest, but I had to make a post about this. Anyone else watch any of the series? Fantastic pitching by the Giants staff, I'm surprised we limited the Tigers offense so efficiently.


And I didn't even ask. Still paying the same amount.

Clan News / I got married!

YUP! Had the wedding last night, headed to Seattle, and hopefully I'll meet Drizzle along the way. I'll post pics and stories when I get back.

I like it when I see new posts in here, but not this user's nonsense.

PC Related Stuff/Questions / Old cell phone LCD
« on: February 19, 2012, 02:08:00 am »
I just got my new phone with my upgrade (Galaxy Nexus <3 ) and I took apart my old Droid (A855). I was able to separate the LCD and ribbon cable on it from the rest of the phone's parts. I would like to use it in some way, even if it is just for fun, somewhat of a DIY/reuse old stuff project.

So far, however, I have not found a way to use just the screen. I have seen other, older cell screens from Nokias used in a way similar to what I have in mind, but they use a controller and some programming. I'm open to learning to code a bit, but can't seem to find a controller compatible with this LCD (if there even is one). I still have all the parts to this thing, would it be better to use the motherboard from the phone and find some way to use them together?

Anyone have any ideas?

I was thinking something similar to this (not necessarily with a mouse, though):

except using this phone's LCD instead:

PC Related Stuff/Questions / Crashing during Flash
« on: January 16, 2012, 02:24:57 am »
This has been an ongoing problem, where I would crash every so often while on pages that use Flash. But the last couple of days, my computer would crash more and more often, until tonight where I've launched different sites/pages with flash and crashed every time (total of 5 times just now).

I'll load up a page like this or this and the computer freezes and bluescreens after just a few seconds.

Any ideas on how to fix the problem? Back when the problem was intermittent, I uninstalled and reinstalled Flash, disabled hardware acceleration, and tried a few other things, with no luck.

What did you all do?

I got:
  • a Jagermeister gift set with 4 Jagermeister shot glasses (been trying to get one the last 2 years, but they always sell out)
  • giftcard to Scheel's
  • some kickass orange and black Giants pj pants
  • nice dress shirts for work
  • SLICK new ties to go with the dress shirts (gotta look sharp)
  • 1 year Costco membership card
  • a goofy, but very nice (and warm) hat like this except it was black and white checkered color
  • a giant Mag-Lite flashlight like cops have that are big and like a baton
  • candy
  • a beautiful new fiancé

TV Shows & Movies / The Union
« on: December 17, 2011, 12:53:56 am »
The Union: Business Behind Getting High is a documentary on marijuana/growing/dealing/etc. IMHO, it is interesting regardless on your outlook or opinion of the plant, for or against. I watched it a couple days ago and was surprised at some of the stuff that was talked about and explained. Just thought I'd mention it. It is on Netflix's instant watch if you have it.
