  1. So who is happy with their teams draft? Dallas is ok, only pick I really didn't like was Pollard in the 4th. Think that messed up the picks following it slightly.
  2. Nationals are in swing, but just about done for today. Will have more Sat and Sun.
  3. High School Regional robotics contests finals today. Pretty interesting. Friend of mines son is in the Huntsville finals. Their 3 team alliance won. There are more regionals next weekend for those that want to watch some live. I thought that it would be boring but figured I would check them. Ended up really enjoying them and watching most of the matches Friday and Saturday. Wish they had these back when I was in high school.
  4. They are into Beta 1. Things are going pretty good, the engine is a beast. They have had over 3k bots/players logged into a fairly small map, the zone crashed but not before they topped 4k. Lately they have been pushing the building sizes. Had a 9 million piece castle under siege with over 3k bots/players. Think building like Minecraft, blocks, and fully destructible with siege weapons.
  5. They are shooting for July 4 for Beta 1, so I would guess release next year unless something breaks.
  6. Todays live streams. Here is the link to rules. Ps. the Team #'s are based on when the high school started a robotics program. Not that the younger teams can't win, they have just had less time to develop an infrastructure/support system. Team 364 is my old high school, the regional they are in today is not live streaming though.
  7. Try this link it is to the archives. Also more live stuff starting tomorrow.
  8. You have to love the trade they pulled off for OBJ.
  9. After the way the ref's are calling games this year they will need to cheat to just have a chance. There are always bad/no calls that go against both teams but at least for Dallas they are just making stuff up. Like how can the QB be sacked by his own offensive lineman.
  10. Only have 8g on this system and there are several games that push it past 90% used. So would say 12g to 16g would be the min. if I was getting a new system. Only reason I haven't upgraded mine is the cost.
  11. I was worried about Prescott's progress last year and this but he has turned it around the last half of this season. You still need a good defense, but you have to have a QB that can help them out by scoring some points and/or drain the clock too. Watson/Trubisky need more time.
  12. Wait since when is 5'9" hobbit size... I'm 5'6"...…..
  13. Getting called in to fix equipment. Eating too much.
  14. My boys are in the Church play on the night of the 24th. Then over to my brother's house Christmas day for lunch. Rest of that week at home playing with the boys.
  15. To me racist words are like any other word. They can only hurt you if you want them too. ie Sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me. And like Pas said it is more how the words are used, context/emotion, rather than the words that are the real problem.
  16. Yes, They are afraid it would cause a panic crashing Wall Street and the banks.
  17. Bet he feels better than I do about Dak……..
  18. Well the Browns won't go 0-16 this year....
  19. My son will be 10 in December and the old iPhone he has is active. He uses it mainly to facetime friends while they game. Some of his buddies don't have mic on their rigs. Don't think he is ready for all the other social apps, since it is harder to limit them, IMO. And he hasn't ask for any of them.
  20. Iphones here for me and the wife. Started with iPhone 3 and currently have a 8. Use it similar to Dunnar. Kids have the older ones that they use for games/youtube.
  21. I always thought the DOT jokes were just made up and they may be. But I have seen with my own eyes a good DOT story. Well here in Mississippi anyway. While waiting for a traffic light several years ago. There were five DOT trucks parked along the side of the road. Four guys dressed nice were standing with some papers watching one guy on a backhoe pull up some old railroad ties, another five guys were all lined up leaning on their shovels also watching. Now because of the traffic I had to sit though several lights so was able to watch them for some time. The guy on the backhoe would move a scoop of dirt/gravel then one of the guys leaning on a shovel would walk over and shovel half a load of dirt and walk back to his place in line. Then the whole process would repeat with each of the five shovel guys taking a turn moving half a shovel load of dirt. I laugh about it to this day and most people I tell the story to think I am making it up.
  22. Did way too much drinking in college. Now I go years between drinks, but when I do it is a good white dessert wine. One with some age on it, decreases the sugar and increase the % alc.
  23. Yea, VM's are the way to go now. As far as the data you can just used a shared drive off of the base OS to store it so if you delete the VM image you lose nothing.
  24. Minecraft was fun. But I have moved on from it to Ark. It doesn't have the destructible like Minecraft but it does have dinosaurs. Both of my kids love it although I need to get another copy so that we can play it together.
  25. Well Beta 1, was pushed back since it is after July 4. They are looking at July 31 now for Beta 1. They have had a lot of testing the past 2 weeks. I have been able to log in a couple of times. Tried combat and crafting. It is still just rough but looks promising. Kind of reminds me of Rift combat with Minecraft building and Warhammer/Dark Age land capturing.
