  1. On the rare occasion we use that, we'll get a couple minutes at best. But they're a blissful couple minutes.
  2. Oh Lord, this. If they're anything like my son, they don't care about the answers. He won't even wait for the answer to end before asking the next question. Sometimes we have to have a question moratorium just to keep the parents sane.
  3. (Warning before reading - my memory is pretty hazy on a lot of this, so it's quite possible I've got some of it wrong. Mostly it was a very long time ago. I'm old and didn't spend as much of the time period I'm describing sober as I probably should've) As far as seeing a full Wrestlemania match - not that I know of. It's possible, but I certainly don't remember it. The only time I watched WWF, as it was at the time, on a regular basis was roughly 1990-1992. Before that I doubt I'd seen a dozen hours of their programming total, mostly due to lack of opportunity (parents didn't have ca
  4. Want to know one thing masks don't protect kids against? Ringworm.
  5. Dolfan, I wanted to add my thanks for this. Best I can remember, I've never seen any full match from any Wrestlemania, and I've never seen a bunch of the WWF/E folks from the last 20 years wrestle at all (I know I've never seen a Cena match, and I don't think I've ever seen a full Rock match, for example). Despite that I read and enjoyed the whole thing. A lot of it got read in my son's room at night while trying to get him to go to sleep, and helped me to stay awake till he was out. Good stuff.
  6. There's at least one 500 page thread in the gaming folder. I'm responsible for an embarrassing amount of it.
  7. I can’t sneak or scan for shit. And I probably have a low cool stat, but I really don’t know. I don’t need those things. I have ammunition. I really don’t get having trouble with the game unless you’re maybe playing on higher difficulty or just damned and determined to do missions a certain way. I’m far from good as a gamer and I barely felt challenged by this. I died occasionally, but the only mission I couldn’t beat by running headlong into danger and blasting everything in sight was the one you start buck naked and unarmed.
  8. The single player only part sounds good. The starting over twice part not so much.
  9. Understand these things take time. I'm hoping they use the extra time to introduce as many new bugs as possible and really break shit once and for all.
  10. So who's behind that, some sort of Rosicrucian/plumbers union cabal? It's funny, but when I first heard Stuart by the Dead Milkmen back in 1988, the conspiracy theory sounded ridiculous. I'm not sure that's true any longer. On the positive side, we've actually got running water, and it's apparently drinkable, though it looks like watered down milk.
  11. Thats right there with the make sure the short guy Isn’t in the UFC lesson Rashad Bobino learned.
  12. If you smell an unpleasant body odor wherever you are, don’t panic - it’s probably just me. City announced we’ll be one of the last areas to get water back. Ugh. At least my parents got it back this morning. There were lines at car washes yesterday because people are stupid assholes.
  13. Supposed to be 7-10 days before water comes back. Woohoo. Nearly two weeks without a shower.
  14. That's why you put a 2-4 hour battery backup in place, so you have an instant bridge supply available until the generator comes online. And you do a test run on the generator every week, even in summer. Our little (by tech company standards) site has had that in place forever, even when we were in a leased building. Scale might be an issue I suppose, since data centers eat huge amounts of power. Update for today: We've got power (mostly) and water (barely). Still have our houseguests. Kid's having a great time with somebody to play with, so taking them in has been a Godsend. Pa
  15. Sounds about right. There are also power issues affecting the treatment plants, and a shit ton of leaks from the ice as well.
