Is It Time to Replace Your First HDTV? (Video)

Njoyda Sauce Re:I wish I could replace it (418 comments)

Mostly same boat here with a Toshiba 34inch CRT. I don't like the raw space consumption of this thing, but it's still kicking and displays decently. I wish it had a better digital resolution mapping, but with a little CTRL +/- fiddling, most pages are readable. I just haven't seen any tech that's got me willing to upgrade, despite the inconveniences.

Njoyda Sauce Canada GeeseCanadian Geese (196 comments)

Canada Geese have a large range (including Canada) and may have the country as a namesake, but should not be called Canadian Geese - unless they live there I guess.

Small Town Builds Its Own Gigabyte Network; Cost To Citizens $57/month

Njoyda Sauce Re:never happen in the states (269 comments)

It's like the batshit crazy ex who doesn't want to be with you but also doesn't want anyone else being with you.

Either way, you're screwed.

It would seem that the individual involved here in your example would not be screwed - at all.

"Lazarus Project" Clones Extinct Frog

Njoyda Sauce Like most new tech.... (154 comments)

This is being overly hyped before the actual results most of us would consider significant. From TFA: "Although none of the embryos survived longer than a few days, the work is encouraging for others looking to clone a variety of currently-extinct animals". I realize that there may be significant steps taken with this attempt, but the real success for most people is when of these things is hopping around.

New Type of Chemical Bond Predicted To Exist In White Dwarfs

Njoyda Sauce Re:Applications in chemistry (97 comments)

there could be a host of novel synthesis based on this bond.

I had a few novel ideas myself, but I'm too lazy to write that much.

Lonesome George Is Dead At 100

Njoyda Sauce Re:Unknown? (154 comments)

When we visited in 2009, we were told by one of the guides that she was his personal fluffer (my words). That's gotta be hard to put on a resume.

Computer Games That Defined RPGs In the 1980s

Njoyda Sauce This will be doomed.... (350 comments)

to be a small 1 pointer at the bottom of an old thread, but in case anyone is still mining...

In addition to wasteland which was already mentioned (which finally has WL2 coming!!) I think there was another awesome RPGs not mentioned:
Alternate Reality (the dungeon)

This great game has it all - humor, great music, discovery, tons of monsters and items and a neat story. It's really hard, but worth it.

and a modern reboot:

Even if they did give him a free lifetime supply, it might not be that long with this much gun fascination.

Njoyda Sauce writes "Recently a friend handed me what he described as a "dead disk" and pleaded with me to help him recover the data on it. I did some googling, and was astounded at the number of tools available. Worse yet, there are few good reviews or first hand accounts for any of the software out there actually saving data. It seems to me that the even when a particular piece of software works well for one user, it often does not for another. Things like disk manufacturer, format type, interface, age, and problem symptoms, all seem to affect which solution works best. In situations where you have some unknowns such as format type are there some good generic solutions out there for Windows? Are there a number of tools that you use to perform the whole task such as one for diagnosis and one for repair?"
