Re: Fallout 4......

All the mods my kid downloaded seem to have borked the system and I can't get the game to load. It just cycles through the opening montage and won't let me get to the start menu. :(

Re: Dry conditions, wildfires in Southern Appalachia

Air quality in Charlotte was code red, dangerous, yesterday. I could see the haze obscuring the tall buildings at 8 am when I was taking my wife to the doctor. When we came out of the building at 10, the smell and the particulates of the smoke was pervasive. The valet was running behind and the ten ...

Re: Fallout 4......

I misplaced Curie. Searching settlements trying to find her. I usually keep all of my companions at the Castle, but I must have sent her elsewhere. I added Preston Garvey to my entourage but was leaving him at Sanctuary when he wasn't with me. (Preston Garvey looks dapper and suave in a tuxedo, form...

Re: "Walking Dead" Cable Series

Michonne found all the mattresses burning on the road, so it was purely a demoralizing move by the Saviors. My thought: Shoot Negan through the gate and open fire from the ramparts on the rest of Negan's crew. Saviors are decapitated and destroy themselves in the succession fight. Might lose Daryl i...

Dry conditions, wildfires in Southern Appalachia

Link to news story that links to multiple fire events throughout the region. Some comments from people I know who are following the issue: I feel that this is actually important. It is also a condition we have seen building up to for quite some time. Start thinking about taking some precautionary p...

Re: Fallout 4......

I got to the point where if I completed the Mass Fusion quest, the Brotherhood of Steel would permanently turn against me, so I went and found Danse and joined up with the Brotherhood for a while, putting my Underground Undercover quest for the Railroad on hold. Then I got to a point where the Broth...

Re: Fallout 4......

Not directly related, but has anyone seen Westworld the HBO series? I haven't seen it. I've seen bits of the commercials for it, and it looks vaguely interesting. Something like a Wild West theme park planet where the animatronic bad guys go psycho? Like, Five Nights at Freddy's meets Blood Miridia...

Re: Fear The Walking Dead

I gave up on this show a while back. A bunch of them got kidnapped off Strand's boat and I realized I was not interested in finding out whether they were seen again. That's where I gave up on it. I wish Netflix would do a zombie thing. They're kicking butt with their Marvel adaptations (and other s...

Re: Fallout 4......

So far, Deacon is keeping my PC in the friend zone, although she has romantic relations with Piper, Cait and Curie. I discovered yesterday that I could make apparel armor mods, so I made an armored tuxedo with something like 142 damage protection. Now she is running around the Commonwealth in style,...

Re: What's going on in Charlotte?

Based on observation and news reports, here is roughly what went down that night. Based on certain locations and the lay of the land, I'm not surprised at the locations certain events occurred. https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/t31.0-8/14480694_10211076505371085_3854302122581926490_o.jpg A few bl...

Re: Military coup d'etat in Turkey

They have also purged 20k teachers. It seems strange that a failed coup that nobody saw coming had so many conspirators. :?

Re: What's going on in Charlotte?

If someone decides to attend a protest to "see what it's all about" or whatever, I suggest: 1. the buddy system--never be caught alone 2. stick close to the organized events 3. stay away from the advancing riot cops 4. plan escape-retreat routes 5. shelter in place if possible On that last point, du...

Re: What's going on in Charlotte?

The signs were with the ethnically and economically diverse protest crowd at Marshall Park across from the Courthouse at 3rd and McDowell. I saw them personally when we were driving through the area on the way back from my kid's kung fu class and we wanted to see what was happening (this is before ...

Re: Clown Madness

I sort of wonder how legit clowns feel about this thing. Say you're a pro clown on your way to a birthday party and you cause a panic. Should pro clowns worry about their safety? When I was a teenager, the church I attended had a " clown worship " thing, where members of the youth group would dress ...

Re: 2016 Storms-Hurricane Matthew Attention FL,GA, SC,NC!

Looks like the storm surge from Myrtle Beach to Oak Island is going to be a monster. Predictions are that it will be fast-moving, so a long soak like Floyd is unlikely. Current models show my city on the western edge, but a 25-mile westward shift could make a big difference.

Investing in stores in settlements will make PC fabulously wealthy before too long.

Built a jetpack for one of my X-01 suits. I was disapp...

Small businesses often run on tight margins. If you have a small biz, do you have plans to weather a force majeure event?
