Watching an episode of TBS's "The King of the Nerds"...when did being a nerd consist of just being a brainiac or a hipster? These people aren't nerds, they're barely even passable as uncommon to the norm. So what you like video games and computers? Most of america's younger generation likes them too.

It's sad times when you call yourself a nerd to seem impressive.

My 3 week long cold finally let up enough to go to the gym today, and I am pleased that I can stilll pull stuff at full capacity. Did a back workout, and none of my numbers went down.

Had to move my sister's ancient ass rear projection tv out of her apartment today. 50inch monster, I had to remove her back door to get it out of her apartment, which is a basement apartment, so I also had to carry the 250 lb monstrosity up the steps.

It waa harder to bring it in the house than carry it out.

TCP/IP enabled in the properties?
About the only thing I can think of at the moment.

Also, maybe try and update the network card's drivers.
Could be shitty default drivers.
Well, I thought it might be drivers, but the port was working not too long ago, we needed to use the laptop to program sonos connect units. My father swears that he was hardwired to a router on it not too long ago, but I think he's going senile, so w/e.

Dunno about tcp/ip, don't recall it being changed ever though.
1654  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Tech problem, DNS error. on: February 22, 2013, 04:25:33 PM
So as the topic title suggests, the issue I'm having is a DNS error. It's on my sister's laptop, a lenovo thinkpad (i.e. a piece of shit). I know it's the laptop because I tried connecting my friend's laptop to her newly installed cable modem and he got on immediately, and I reset the modem numerous times during the troubleshooting. To further the issue, I took the laptop to my house and tried connecting online with it and same problem. So for a quick rundown...

I am trying to connect the laptop via a wired connection to the internet and receiving a DNS error, but only through the ethernet port as the wireless works fine. When the ethernet cable is plugged in, the small recognition lights next to the port flicker, showing me it sees the cable, but when I check the status of the connection, it shows no information coming in. I'm thinking the port may have been damaged, but short of pulling the whole thing apart, I can't tell.

What I will ask for here is a way to run maybe a diagnostic on the port itself, or should I just ditch the wired connection, go wireless, and upgrade the laptop instead?

I have a debit card, Eusis, but like I said, I have been having issues with account fraud, which has resulted in my account being frozen before. It cost me a job because we couldn't pick up materials in a timely fashion, and in the freelance AV world, no one cares what excuse you have.

Anyways, how long is the game, roughly speaking?
1656  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance on: February 21, 2013, 12:06:01 AM
Just making sure I placed the part in parenthesis about how I applied recently for one with poor results....yeah I did.
1657  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance on: February 20, 2013, 11:40:03 PM
Just start using credit cards. If you are uncomfortable with credit, just have one card you use when you need to.

Honestly, my brother got the LE. I saw the plasma lamp. Not impressed. Glad I didn't put down $150 for it ...
3 friends of mine are in fairly serious credit card debt. Fuck credit cards they are demonic (I applied for one recently and was rejected, poor credit rating).

Quit giving them your business.
It's a similar issue to radioshack, I hate the company, not the people that work there. Most of the employees are pretty cool people, and I enjoy being able to talk to them. Plus, a sheer lack of places to purchase specific special edition games from forces my hand. I could go without the cooler version, but why cut my nose to spite my face? Before you say online order, I've been having issues with my bank account, and my account has been frozen due to it before, so I try to avoid online purchases when possible. Yeah, the problems are resolved fairly quickly, but my current business goings require I have large amounts of money available, and a frozen account can screw up situations quick like. I'm going to look into some prepaid cards for amazon for future purchases though, or just go through my personal buddy for smaller game purchases instead.

Also, stop trying to quell my rage with logic, Ashton, I AM PISSED!

No one was gonna buy Plasma tvs either....then they lowered in price, improved in fu.ctionality, and are now the best tvs on the market....second to 4ks only.

Course....they could go the way of DLP...

So infinite rage continues. Failstop screwed up a shitton of preorders for the LE version, and the EARLIEST i can get mine is next week, meanwhile it's 170ish dollars sitting in their fucking cashdrawer and I'm without my fucking game. Best part is the fucking kid explaining to me why I can't get it earlier.

"We have to honor a customer's preorder for 48 hours before we can ship copies to another store".

So I BOUGHT the game in full, not just placed a measly 25 bucks down on it, and my preorder was neglected enough that I don't get it for a week. How come the dick who didn't pick his up gets the benefit of the doubt and another 24 hours to get his? This is horseshit.

You're underestimating Sony. With the 4k tvs coming, Sony's gonna have a huge command over anyone else with the ps4.

MGS1 Ninja vs Snake quotes. Also....

As a thought exercise, I often like to compare Final Fantasy VII, VIII, and IX. Every time I come away thinking IX should be considered the best out of the three, but I always run into a problem with this: I just don't like playing FFIX. It is boring. I have always found it boring. As dated as the graphics are on VII and as contrived as the story in VIII, I have played through each multiple times, and I still have urges to play them every now and then (particularly VII within the past year). I just don't get it.
Could it be the more futuristic or modernized look of the games, perhaps? I've noticed that I have a greater appreciation for more olden looks myself, but some people just appreciate the look of average day society.
1664  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance on: February 19, 2013, 11:26:28 PM
Went to failstop for my limited edition....they had been shorted copies. I have to wait til tomorrow now.
