If you liked Age of Empires, and you are a coder: Have you ever tried making your own AI files? Its a very simple rules based scripting language and you will even find a AI user manual on the program disc. We make our own AIs and then battle them against each other to see who can make the toughest AI. All of our AIs and way harder to beat than the simplistic AI that comes with the game.
Actually, the AI files are for Age of Empires II: Age of Kings, or the Conquerors Expansion
Ping me back if you are interested. Its a lot of fun, and addictive.
Part of the reason I don't play online is that it requires a level of dedication I cannot give, I will not play any game for many months and then start looking around for something to play. Thanks for the offer but I'll pass.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
I just set up Remote Desktop on my Server so I could access and administer it from anywhere in the house. It took me about one minute to set it up.
I actually was thinking I had to reinstall the system, as a faulty installer killed the HDD. The Windows recovery tools didn't help, but using some tools on an Ubuntu live CD I was able to repair the disk enough for the Windows recovery tools to finish the job and get the system back online. I then proceeded to reboot in safe mode and remove the application.
The installer (well, uninstaller) in question is the one for CruiseControl.NET. I don't know why it crashed, but it did. Removing it in safe mode worked correctly, oddly enough, so it might have been a blip of some sort.
It was acting up so I decided to format it. Even the formatting was acting up, but eventually I got there.
Started up iTunes, which installed some software on my iPod and rebooted my iPod.
Everything froze instantly, iTunes, Windows Explorer, Winamp (which I prefer a gazillion times over iTunes) and the iPod itself...
Need to buy a new iPod Classic 160GB, and that sucks... Ah well
Well, it didn't work at all anymore, even without the cable attached.
I already ordered a new one (about 50 euro's cheaper than in the Apple store ) and I expect it on tuesday.
I mostly use it at work anyway, so I'll only have two days without an iPod. Luckily I got some spare mp3's I can listen to
I play CD's in the car. Call me old fashioned, but I still buy CD's... Only listen to them in the car though. And I don't drive a lot. Maybe once or twice a month and only short distances
I use my iPod at work and on vacations mostly. Once in a while when I go out cycling. I have a key to the office and I live only three minutes away, so I can pick it up whenever I want to
I'm in the car for about an hour a day, with my commute to/from work and errands. I can put 150-175 songs on the nano, which is good for about two weeks.
The classic I carry to/from work, because I keep my music library on my home machine. Like you, I still buy CD's. I've bought some music online, but I always tend to burn a CD of it for archival purposes.
Whenever I get new mp3's I put them on a usb memory stick which I take to work to put them on my iPod there
I don't buy music online... I buy it physically to listen to it in the car, on my stereo (as an alarm clock), to enjoy the artwork and to support the band/label.
If I wanted an mp3 I'd just download it ehhh... without buying it
I'm not very good with technical stuff, so I'll pass on replacing the hard drive myself.
A friend was very interested in dissecting the iPod, so I gave it to him. Told him if he could fix it he may keep it. He was very happy. He's an *gawk* Apple fanboi...
Screenshot. Looks like they randomly decided to change the currency on me. Also, they made "man" plural and possessive, but "lady" was only made to be plural. Guess they couldn't figure out how to make possessive a word ending with "s".
Following their appearance on This Morning on the 15th November demand for the Bluetooth Gloves has been phenomenal, and whilst we expect to be able to fulfil existing pre-orders we do not currently expect to have additional stock until very close to Christmas so we cannot guarantee pre-Christmas delivery on any new orders. We are working very closely with our suppliers and will do all we can to get stock out as quickly as possible though.
