I prefer consoles to PC for gaming. If you ask me they're better.

Sure, they're more limited than a PC, but if I go into Game tomorrow, and pick up a new game for my 360, I know I can fire it up and it'll play, no fuss, no muss. And that would be true if I was still using the first 360 I had, from seven years ago. I kinda doubt a PC for the same price as a 360 at launch would be playing brand new games after that length of time.

Doesn't play brand new games though, does it tongue.gif

You mean the Red Ring of Death?

That's only really a problem for the original models of the 360, they fixed that problem.

And reliability isn't the point I was making about Console vs PC

Oh, our original Playstation 3 died of that yellow ring of death thing...

Sadly, it died just after McDaughter had finished finally killing a Boss on some game, I forget which, but she'd been trying for ages...and she was convinced that she'd done it by trying too hard... sad.gif ...Bless her...Well, she was a lot younger then... biggrin.gif ...

Sadly, no silliness this morning...Sillyness only works with awake time...I'm not properly awake...Though you either are or you aren't...As I keep saying...But right now, my brain feels asleep!...Go figure!...

Free food and a country drive, yay! Maybe the christening will turn out to be unexpectedly exciting. biggrin.gif


Its one of those perfect spring days in Grits world. With two family members upstairs spewing cold germs and the byproducts of sinus infections. ohmy.gif Im considering leaving them to their own devices!




OK, Im actually about to make a tea and chicken soup delivery to the sickrooms. But after that theyre on their own!!



For at least thirty minutes until I check on them and collect the dishes. Sigh. Im not very good at neglecting.

Urgh, got dragged into a Star Wars canon argument, albeit only a small one sad.gif

They're repconing a lot of the canon apparently.

*Retconning...

Repconn is that place in Fallout New Vegas...

I am so not getting into the canon argument...

I agree that all there should be in Star Wars is in the films...

I also disagree vehemently...Good word use there...

I can not do the slightest thing about it...I have more important things to worry about... laugh.gif ...

I figure Disney's throwing it all out, just because Lucas never liked it. But some guy actually tried to argue that because all the Expanded Universe stuff is licensed material, then Lucas must have approved it.

I facepamled really hard when that came up, and dug out the Wiki page that covers Lucas and Star Wars Canon.
ImperialSnob
All I know is there was 3 books that were pretty much Ep.7,8 and 9 and they'll defintatly not be cannon.

I think JJ and Disney are smart enough to keep Lucas away from it.

Well, Lucy somethingorother, who was George's first Lucasfilm employee - his secretary...Was tasked with overseeing the EU...Making sure that nothing contradicted etc...At somepoint during the process, she must have given up and delegated...

George did know what was going on...But had no real input...
ImperialSnob
I feel so bad for Lucas, he screwed up but I feel the hate for him is a bit much at times(death threats).

McBadgere
Yeah, I think it's really sad that people go so far over what was essentially meant to be a film for 9-year olds...

Anyways, must dash, Gents...

In several interviews he's gone to some lengths to make clear that he doesn't even know what goes on in it, doesn't read any of it, and doesn't consider it a part of the Star Wars universe. He put someone in charge of keeping continuity, but beyond that he's had nothing to do with it.

Cya McBadgere.

Also I'm not gonna even try and argue about Star Wars, my knowledge is almost non-existent.

Although I do have the Star Wars Essential Atlas.

Apparently Operation: American Spring is happening.

lol good luck you crazy b******s.

ImperialSnob
There isn't don't worry tongue.gif
mirocu
It looked like it but maybe you were just discussing a real argument that happened someplace else.. biggrin.gif

Hows things then? smile.gif
ImperialSnob
Good, you?
mirocu
Im awright. We had nice weather today and generally it was just a good day smile.gif
ImperialSnob
I had a good day too, no classes tomorrow it's an award day that ends at 1pm.

Today I had a French Breakfast for French class, that was very nice.

I also found a sport I enjoy, Sprinting. I got the 2nd(or 3rd I forget) lowest time in the class.

I asked if the school had a sprinting team, they don't but if I ask at the start of next year they'll enter me into competitions.

I know what I'll be practicing in the Summer along with writing and hopefully an instrument(keyboard probably, for my birthday in July).

mirocu
Nice you found something to do that you like smile.gif

Playing the keyboard sounds fun and sometimes I wish I had one too. Got a few Nightwish tunes Id like to play.. biggrin.gif

Well at the time you were on, Mirocu was off, and I figured the two of you'd be bouncing back and forth like that.

Seems he turned in for the night instead.



On another note: Ugh.

Just updated firefox, then had to hunt for an add-on to make it look like it did before the update mad.gif

Firefox annoys me

It is driving me nuts too. Especially since Forecast Fox no longer works! devilsad.gif devilsad.gif devilsad.gif

What?? EU Star Wars is much better than the movies. EU gives us more insight on cultures, species and characters, and more importantly . . . character points of views! George Lucas contradicted a few things in his movies.

It just snarles up the computer somehow...McWife is not a patient woman when it comes to her internet, and when the comp starts acting like a dog because Firefox is slowing the thing up...Urgh...

I'm rarely off I.E. though, so I'm pretty much fine...Except for a couple of sites that don't like I.E. and only work properly on Firefox...Urgh...Bloody computers!!!...Just work properly will ya?!!...

Yep, I agree...Wholeheartedly...

But I also agree with the logic behind only sticking to that which has been in the films and starting again with a new story...

One of the main things I hated with a passion in the EU, is what they did to Han and Leia.

They get together, get married, have three kids...Brilliant!...

Then...

Because being happy is boring, they have a giant war that takes the husban's best friend, resulting in H&L's near-divorce; the youngest son is killed soon after a reconciliation with Han after the Solo Sr. blamed the Solo Jr. for leaving said friend to die (which he had to)...And then their remaining son goes all "True Force User™" and therefore evil and has to be killed by their daughter...

And this is fun is it?...Which bit of that are they supposed to film?...It's supposed to be escapist fun fiction meant for kids...Not that hideousness which pretty much had me abandon the EU...Only my OCD kept me going back for a while...

Oh, and going back to how much George knew about the EU...Apparently he got involved in the books thing at one point, because Anakin Solo was on course for becoming the saviour of the Galaxy...Because he was the one that figured out how to fight the Yuzzahn Vong...

And then, because he was making the prequel trilogy at the time, George the idiot decided that us mere mortals would get confused by having two heroes called Anakin in the two storylines...Y'know, one hell-bent on ruining the galaxy, and the other saving it sometime in the future...Easily confused...I mean you've got Anakin Solo and Anakin Skywalker...I've got them mixed up in the middle there though, I admit...Bad sentence structure...Apologies... laugh.gif ...Lemme be, it's early and I'm angry again...Let it go Robert!! Let it go...No, don't start singing the song!!!... ohmy.gif ...Anyways, George the Idiot had them kill off Anakin Solo...*Shrug*...

I mean I'm confused all the time between George Lucas and George Foreman...Isn't everyone?...*Sigh*...

This is not fun or escapism...It's just depressing...Idiot people...And they keep hiring Troy Denning!!...WHYYYYY????...



EDIT!!!!!....I tried to make it one post but it took so long to type it made it two posts!!!...I wholeheartedly apologise mod people!!!...AAARGH!!!....It's a TRAP!!!!.... panic.gif ....

I've never really explored the EU of Star Wars... I've seen all the films and a bit of the Clone Wars cartoons but that's it...
McBadgere
Aaaand right there is another of the points I should have made...

There are bound to be more people that have only "explored" the films and have absolutely no idea what's been going on with the EU at all...People that explaining Grand Admiral Thrawn, Thracken Sal-Solo, Wraith Squadron, Corran Horn or back to Mace Windu's Shatterpoint power thing is just going to take far too much time to do...

And if you're going to do the films properly, you have to have Han, Luke and Leia in there...Which means going back to what the core of SW is about...Kids Saturday morning adventure movie...Which means completely ignoring all the horrible stuff in between Jedi and now (then?...Long Time Ago etc)...

rocu did turn in for the night, yes.. biggrin.gif

Thats why Ive disabled the Windows update; I hate all the small changes I have to track down so I can change it back to how it was. Maybe I miss out on the good stuff too, but I figure if everything works why change it?

What has EU got to do with Star Wars???? wacko.gif wacko.gif


The Expanded Universe. All the books, games, comics and stuff that have been produced.

Well, I knew it wasnt about the new nazi regime... Carry on, then.. biggrin.gif

I was really hoping you'd reply to that in the Nerfherder's Rest, so that I could post there again biggrin.gif
