  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Wait since when is 5'9" hobbit size... I'm 5'6"...…..
  4. Getting called in to fix equipment. Eating too much.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Yes, They are afraid it would cause a panic crashing Wall Street and the banks.
  8. Bet he feels better than I do about Dak……..
  9. Well the Browns won't go 0-16 this year....
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. They are shooting for July 4 for Beta 1, so I would guess release next year unless something breaks.
  18. They say they are still on track for July 4. Still very rough so have little idea of how the final product will turn out. Was in a test 2 weeks ago and see progress, looks to be heading in the right direction.
  19. Traveling for my son to play in a soccer tournament on Saturday and Sunday. Hopefully the weather doesn't rain it out.
  20. Is there a way to change your POV in first person ship mode? I can't see anything while on deck of the frigate that I found. Makes aiming the cannons a PITA. Nice, I stay with the light weapons myself. Have the katana on a fighter. If I can't get a better view on the class 3 I'm going to switch back to my starter class 4. Although I do love sinking the little pirate ships in 2 broadsides. Which port is the best for buying bigger ships?
  21. Well, after restarting the game several times. I discovered I am not great, the class 1 is the starter ship for a capt. I tried a different one with a class 4 and am doing ok, I guess. Have captured 4-6 small class 6 pirate ships and sold them so have 120k or so. Lost a lot of stuff before I figured out that the quarters you go to when you select cabin is not yours but the crews. I dropped a lot of gems in the chest several times and a red pistol then a couple of days later its empty. Have 3 officers that all hate me, not sure why. Maybe I'm being too good, capturing pirates instead of being one. Just a lot more of a learning curve than I expected, guess reading the manual would help.
  22. How do I get my cannons to shoot farther than 100-200 yrds? Doesn't seem to matter how much elevation I use. They only go about halfway to the target before hitting the water.
  23. Figured out my speed problem. And some how managed to sucker a class 1 ship to run aground in range of patrol ship. The patrol ship killed off the crew and I captured it. I still can't hit anything with my cannons. But now have a class 1 with 100 24lbs cannons... I'll have to sell it because of the upkeep. Now if I could actually hit something with a cannon or hire a crew, still have less than 100 men, I would be dangerous. Ps: I am still rank 1 and have earned zero experience as far as I can tell. With about 30 mins play time.
  24. Only way I have been able to sink them is to lure them close to the forts. Don't think I have hit anything with my cannons. The guy I picked for starter has a class 3 with 24 12lbs per side if I remember right. I fire and see water splashes about 100 ft from my boat and about 300 ft short of the pirates. Tried boarding and die quickly, think the most crew I have been able to hire was 2 officers and 94 men. I have tried the early quest 2 or 3 times and can never get close to were I need to go before time runs out. Not sure why but my boat moves at a snails pace or seems to when I am on the travel map. Like 2 days pass just to get out of sight of the harbor. Maybe just me...
  25. I tried this a couple of weekends ago and it is just to slow moving for me. Every time I left port I would get jumped by pirates, sink them and have to return to port for repairs.
