Live from Apple's 'Let's Rock' event in San Francisco (Engadget)

Sep 10th 2008 1:27PM Thank you for your response, I will certainly follow your advice. In
your spare time, take a look at the now 22 pages of comments on that
article. You'll notice that I am one of very many with the same
opinion. Is this the same message you'd tell all of them?

"Hello, people who find flippant comments distracting and
unprofessional, please go away?"

I'll leave and as some others have indicated, they'll leave.

Have a good day.

Sep 9th 2008 3:21PM "Ah, so that's how it works."
"Yeah, 99 million were total crap."

What's with all the snippy bitchy commentary from Joshua? Engadget couldn't send a mature reporter to cover the event?

How to surf the web even if Internet Explorer is disabled (Download Squad)

Jan 3rd 2008 8:09PM Certainly interesting points. My users can do whatever they want with firefox, squid, adblock and user rights on their local workstations. On the TS server, they don't get internet access at all, because they're all in the same sandbox.

I wasn't clear in that the internet blocking I am doing is on the server(s) where people do actual work.

They're free to mess up their workstations all they can but not on critical servers.

Jan 3rd 2008 6:57PM Thankfully the locking down I did still prevents this from working. Admins don't lock you out for gits and shiggles.

D3 brings Puzzle Quest and friends to XBLA (Joystiq)

May 1st 2007 7:32PM I'm a Lvl 25 Wizard with a lvl 4 spider mount and some nice equipment. My neighbor is a lvl 39 Wizard with a gryphon mount and some choice spells. Multiplayer PQ is amazing. We play this multiplayer more than anything else that came before.

Gaming's Kobayashi Maru and how to enjoy it (Joystiq)

Feb 18th 2007 2:38PM For me, there was a frustrating level in goldeneye, where you were supposed to come out without firing... I always tried to shoot my way out of that one.

Is this the future? Wow! This must be the glorious year of 1999, when win98se brought widespread multi-monitor support!

Wii Opera browser beta now available (Joystiq)

Dec 22nd 2006 8:40PM Just got my wii today, Ho-ly crap, this thing is neat. Or, I guess it is, it keeps installing patch after patch.

2AM: The Wii/PS3 lines form and spots are for sale (Joystiq)

Dec 17th 2006 12:03PM I was at target @ 5:30 am, they only had 15 units. bbuy 3 doors down only had 24... that line stretched around the building. I decided to wait @ target just in case they had more units than they thought. There really was only 15 units. They had 12 pair of wiimote/nunchucks, so I stuck around when the voucher people left, and was first in the store. I got one set of nunchuk/wiimote, elebits and zelda for when I do get a wii. I'm glad too, those contorllers have been every bit as scarce.

I think I may have been one of very few people in the 60+ line that was getting a unit just to play with it. Everyone else seemed to be a parent waiting for their kid.
