Any interest in Project Reality? It's a Battlefied 2 mod so you'd have to have that or get it. Looks interesting.

General Discussion / Mad Men

If you haven't seen it, do so. Unless you just don't watch shows that is.

Here's a taste of some of the more powerful scenes of the main character, Don Draper. He's head of Creative at this Madison Avenue advertising firm. I withhold judgement until the series is finished this year, but it is front runner for best series ever, IMO. Top notch scripts, casting, sets and acting.

Note that these scenes aren't completely spoilers because much of what is going on with the characters can't be seen in these relatively short clips.

General Discussion / Microsoft Just Called
« on: September 15, 2014, 02:51:37 pm »
Yeah, so I ignore 1-800 calls, etc. I got a call from a real extension just now. The number was 1-212-334-5780. So I took a chance and answered it. The delay after I said hello before I could hear anyone's voice almost got me to hang up, which I also usually do when I do answer the phone.

So I guy says in stilted English that sounded a lot like the guy that answers customer service calls in India "Hello, this is Peter from Microsoft Programming and Maintenance". I said, "You're kidding, right" with a little laugh.

He hung up.

Sad thing is, people fall for this stuff.

I don't think anyone that reads this here needs a reminder but we have family and friends that do.

General Discussion / The Midnight Special
« on: September 10, 2014, 11:37:27 pm »
I'm going to occasionally post videos from Burt Sugarman's The Midnight Special musical show. Feel free to join in. You can read about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Midnight_Special_(TV_series)

I have a slight fascination as, due to the time slot, I never saw this growing up. I feel I missed out on so much.

As an inaugural post, I'm going to share Peter Frampton live. I don't know why but I love this song and this video. Maybe it's the talkbox, which isn't that amazing by itself but was groundbreaking at the time. Also probably his style, which is way into making his music.

My favorite cover. And a great video. Great beard. Best bald bass in the business, Fake fireplace, vest and workboots. I could go on but who would listen?

Any thoughts about this area? We are considering moving sometime in the future and trying to scout out possible areas. Nothing set in stone, just reviewing our near future plans and options.

In general I don't like snow, but we want a place closer to Indiana than where we're at, and we'd also like smaller population than the Houston area with the ability to get away quickly. While I technically have a veritable frontier out in Texas, usually when we want to head out of town everyone else is doing the same thing and you have to drive several hours to clear datum; what usually takes a half an hour can take 1 to 2 hours driving just to get out of town.

Just want a quieter life. Also looking for a lower crime rate, though we've not had bad luck here.

Not sure I won't lose a ton of income so that may hold us back.

Was also thinking South Carolina for a warmer alternative.

Tennessee would be closer to "home".

Thanks for any thoughts!
