  1. Guild Wars 2

    I have done only a small fraction of what you have already done but I would already agree the new zones feel good and the difficultly level is noticeably less than HoT. I'm phoning it in half the time on fights ("Oh I aggroed another patrol oh well").
  2. European Trip

    You mentioned food in Paris and Rome but not Germany. Yeah, parking and gas in Germany is $$$. Car ownership in general is more $$$ in Germany. Those are some of the reasons why you have more small cars. Every time someone ask me about Autobahn I tell them it's not as crazy as they think it is but it's a bit more intense because everyone is expecting you to pay more attention. I think tipping is a terrible system. I wish we could get rid of it. Thank you again for being comfortable with sharing photos. Speaking for myself, I do look through them. I still find it weird that Cologne did not feel like Germany to you but I've never been there so.... When it comes to cars, people are biased about "local" brands. It's not entirely logical. That's all I can think of right now.
  3. Intel Coffee Lake

    article - https://www.anandtech.com/show/11869/intel-announces-8th-generation-coffee-lake-hex-core-desktop-processors i7-8700K, $359, 6 cores/12 threads, 3.8GHz base frequency i5-8600K, $257, 6 cores/6 threads, 3.6GHz base frequency Not a whole lot new there that was not already known. Nice that it is official though. I think the 8600K might find a nice niche for itself if you have the right use-case and plan to overclock and push it up to maybe the same base frequency as the 7700K (4.2GHz) which I imagine would not be hard.
  4. Trailers

    BOTH of those movies have LOTS of well known names attached to them... the DENSITY

    I was also surprised how easy it was to freeze your credit in the first place. How has no one tried to freeze people's credit maliciously before? I guess people just don't open new lines of credit that option they might not even notice?

    The more I think about this, the more palatable it makes this upgrade. $650 (pixel 2 64gb non-xl) -$115 (5x 32gb trade in) total: $535 (before tax, ship, fees)
  7. Guild Wars 2

    They basically all got this bit added on: "This skill now applies its effects in a 120 radius around you in addition to a 300 range cone ahead of you. This ability can now be cast while in the air." That being said 120 is still close. A long time ago when I was shout build it was like 600 range AOE on everything that mattered. Someone said this is 120 range indicator but that seems a bit too big... source - https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Range ""The most common ranges are 130 (for most "melee" attacks) and 1200 (for most "long-range" attacks). The only weapon in this table with more than 1200 range is the Ranger's longbow (with 1500). ""
  8. This is very true. I've been to conference where NEST exploits were being demoed. That being said, some (many?) of the smaller manufacturers never patch and are very insecure right out of the box.

    ....but is the trade in only if you buy an X4? I don't really want an X4.... if I can put it towards a new Pixel though that might soften the blow nicely...
  10. Trailers

    Oh boy. That was tropes galore.

    "And Here is the Pixel 2 XL in Black and White, Starting at $849" source - http://www.droid-life.com/2017/09/19/google-pixel-2-xl-exclusive/ It's just rumor/leak news but, if its true, screw that. "Here is the Pixel 2 in “Kinda Blue,” White, and Black – Starting at $649" source - http://www.droid-life.com/2017/09/19/google-pixel-2-kinda-blue-price/ Ok I guess that's $LIGHTLY more palatable but $till......
  12. Overwatch

    They cut defense matrix uptime in 1/2..... jeezuz.....
  13. Financial Markets

    I thought there were laws requiring disclosure of breaches? Yeah, I thought so, here is a list of some of them: http://www.ncsl.org/research/telecommunications-and-information-technology/security-breach-notification-laws.aspx

    That "unplanned" reply is pretty bullshit.
