  1. Ever try the .454 Casull ? Firing that caused heads to turn at the range. "W.T.F!! was THAT?!?!"
  2. Addams Family house. (gonna need a train set to blow up tho) Resident Evil 1 Mansion has been mentioned, but we need...... The Hive! Area 52 Puzzle Palace. (aka the Pentagon) Maybeery, er Mayberry. 😛 all I can think of on one cup of coffee on a Monday morning.
  3. New Bunker: Central HQ (or whatever it was called)..... From "Get Smart" Have fun opening all those doors. heh.
  4. Been getting the same thing recently. Same T3 POI from 2 traders. It's a nice POI with some good stuff (lotsa brass and candles) The one with the graveyard in the basement.
  5. Had that last night. Wasn't dead though. Was in the sit up "shoot me now" pose. So I hopped off the chopper and shot'im. He stopped then.
  6. crunched the block wall at the porch (it's boarded and sealed now. tempfix) yes, the peeled out and took off. (they were caught) By the time I ran downstairs, he was gone. No boomsticks, I but I had my baseball bat handy. (Q3 aluminum)
  7. The PoW camp from Hogans Heroes. All those tunnels. (and barracks etc)
  8. Really should change it to "Bob's Bacon" (pregen02 has 2 of'em) Want a fun experiment: max out the meat gathering, then go visit Gracie. A truly astonishing amount of baconburgers.
  9. The cow catcher is great for running into deer at full speed and sending them into orbit! (zeds too) heh.
  10. A lot of those are in the CompoPak. Casino. airport. Mall (that one is absolutely gigantic!) Amusment park. (be very careful in that one. also huge) Some very large mansions yes. Some the difficulty is rather easy. The ones that are for T5 tho? ..... You are not prepared!!!..
  11. Replacing Windows with Linux on a DESKTOP (emphasis), is generally a trivial thing. Did that for my father over 15 years ago. (he hated waiting for the AV software to load and the warnings etc). Switched him to Ubuntu, Firefox, Evolution, OpenOffice (at the time) and all worked fine. When my mother came to live with me, I switched her over immediately, as she would click on darn near anything. Same deal. Firefox and Chrome (reasons for both), LibreOffice etc. All well. Was going to change her from the Unity interface to Cinnamon, as closer to a windows feel. Her response: " I don't remember what that was like. I don't want to learn anything new". (she's 80 now) Wifi cards are an issue still. Had to move her computer, (after truck hit the house, see the clip). Got a wifi adapter and 100' ethernet cable as backup. No go on the card. Cable made it with about 2' to spare. So the AVERAGE user, the OS really doesn't make much difference. Browser, email, print and that's pretty much all many care about. Besides, how many NON-Techie types can troubleshoot or fix a windows problem? yeah, not many. So if that can't fix linux, the call for help, just like in windows. Oh, it's an absolute bonus treat for the scam calls and fake popups too. Mother: "Windows Security Center has found ...." "what should I do?" Me: Mom, are you running windows? Mother: Well, no. Me: just click the red X in the corner. It's a scam, and it can't hurt you because I put you on linux. Mom: oh, ok. The scam calls, are fun. I string them along looking for what they want. Sooooo much fun when I say "oh, did I forget to mention I'm on Linux and not Windows?" hee-hee. (serves those bastids right) (and no, linux is not perfect, nor is it a panacea for anything) Oh, I've also been using it since pre 0.99 . Still have the stack of floppies for that. I'm a bit of a packrat for software stuff)
  12. Canned condensed milk. Lasts practically forever. (kinda like Twinkies) :P (taste though..... )
  13. ppls asked "how were you so calm?" Been through a major quake (northridge) and of course, army training. In the immortal words of the bunny "I'll be scared later, right now I'm too mad" The front of the house has an enclosed porch. (that's what was hit) Cinderblocks up to the window line. My mother had her computer/office on that porch. She was in there when it happened. Office has been moved. (and what a chore what was moving the cabling for the phone/computer) Mother is NOT amused. Was not a minor crunch. (still trying to figure out how the screen shook when it hit. OBS captures the game, yet IT shook. odd) Of course, next day, stream said I hadda shewt stuff. I did. Viewer used MM to get me kilt 5 times. heh. That WAS fun. (now, where can I find some AT obstacles and some mines.... hrmmm) 😛 (I know, I wish)
  14. Because I *know* the kind of crap they do. Going back 30 years. (used to work for a software company, and I know first hand what kind of shenanigans they can, and will pull) As for the the cam for meetings, ok, then have it a requirement for THAT program, not the bloody OS. oh well, I'll be retiring when win10 is EOL, so we'll see just what is going on then. Until then, nope, aint gonna touch 11. Of course, I said I wouldn't touch 10, but did only to see if that would fix the FO76 graphic stuttering that got introduced in one patch on Win7. Did the upgrade (free couple weeks ago, and yes, you can still do it), and lo and behold, the stuttering went away. GG Bethesda. pox upon them all. /shrug 😛
  15. Now it's being reported that after 2023, Win 11 will REQUIRE a front facing camera, except on desktop PCs. WTF? What possible technical reason would require that? I'm gonna have to make a thicker tinfoil hat it seems.
