BlueCollarCamel Re:Have they played the mission? (548 comments)

It's a game dude. If you can't separate fantasy from reality you shouldn't be playing it.

A Hypothesis On Segway Hate

BlueCollarCamel Re:Other reasons (487 comments)

Much like my desire to buy a motorcycle dies every few months when I see one that's wiped out on the interstate.

While I don't know your daily driving patterns, I might suggest getting a motorskooter/motorcycle for travel within the city, and use your car on the interstate.

A Hypothesis On Segway Hate

BlueCollarCamel Re:It was all the blasted hype (487 comments)

fancy-ass moped for rich people who were too lazy to walk.

The hype isn't what bothered you, ENVY is what bothered you.

A Hypothesis On Segway Hate

BlueCollarCamel Re:The main reason I've seen for Segway hate (487 comments)

I've accidentally bumped into pedestrians numerous times, even after loudly excusing myself. These accidents do happen, even when I'm walking my bike through a crowded area. Decking someone for an accident is NOT the way to handle the situation. Besides, you don't know if the other person is well versed in martial arts or armed.

BlueCollarCamel ErdÅ's (799 comments)

I wish I was born earlier so I could have met Paul ErdÅ's. I can only dream to be half the mathematician he was.

BlueCollarCamel Re:You can use outlook (394 comments)

What I don't get is why don't they make a Google Apps Appliance, similar to what they did with their search.

Standalone GPS Receivers Going the Way of the Dodo

BlueCollarCamel Re:I guess I should prepare for extinction then (422 comments)

I just got the GPSmap 60CSx the other day, and that device is amazing! I used to have the Venture Cx and the little bastard kept losing signal in the slightest tree coverage when geocaching.

Valve Takes Optimistic View of Piracy

BlueCollarCamel Re:Finally (509 comments)

You could always buy the legitimate copy then download a cracked version. It's what I do for all my legit games that require a CD.

Valve Takes Optimistic View of Piracy

BlueCollarCamel Re:Finally (509 comments)

I think that kinda is how Epic has done their Unreal franchise. They removed the CD-check with the first patch for Unreal Tournament, and all sequential UTs haven't required it.

Valve Takes Optimistic View of Piracy

BlueCollarCamel Re:Finally (509 comments)

Being called a "n00b" and a "fag" ceased the minute I stopped playing Counter-Strike. What a terrible game it was. I now play UT3/TF2/L4D on regular servers/with people I've "friended" and all is well.
