Shooting of the Day Aug 6, 12, 12:11 p.m.
I hate to start a thread with this title, but it doesn't exist here yet and sadly, probably should, considering the sick frequency we are experiencing.
Here's the latest from this weekend. An Army veteran shoots and kills attendees of a Sikh temple.
SimCity Feb 6, 13, 10:30 a.m.
Although I'm not a gamer, I'm very excited for the upcoming release of SimCity. Seems like they are going back to their Maxis roots and creating a new version that should capture everything that made the original such a success. The GlassBox engine is super intriguing, and so is the multiplayer aspect. I know I'll be putting tons of time into this.
Wool Omnibus May 14, 12, 11:09 a.m.
I would normall post this in the sci-fi book thread, but I think it's so good that it deserves its own.
As a long-time sci-fi fan, I'm always on the lookout for a great book to read in the genre, but they're far and few between. On top of a great sci-fi concept, in order to be great, it also has to employ great writing and characters. Isaac Asimov, Heinlein and Vonnegut (amongst many others) were great at this and have gone down in history as the great sci-fi authors. I think we have a new addition: Hugh Howey.
Hugh Howey wrote a short story called Wool just under a year ago. He self-published this novelette and developed a quick and strong following. With encouragement from fans, he wrote several more books in the series over the last few months. These have been released as a single book entitled Wool Omnibus.
Of the current 690 Amazon reviews, 618 are 5 star. I couldn't resist, so I bought a copy. They aren't wrong. If you're a sci-fi fan, buy this now, you won't be disappointed.
Currency symbol Oct 10, 12, 10:54 a.m.
What do you consider to be a generic symbol that could represent currency while remaining independent of specific currency symbols (dollar, euro, etc)?
8 Pro vs. RT Oct 25, 12, 10 a.m.
What are the differences between Windows 8 Pro and Windows RT, and how are the differences relevant to the Surfaces? It's harder for me to find the answers than I had anticipated. Thanks.
AMC The Killing Apr 12, 11, 12:02 p.m.
I caught the two-hour pilot and second episode to this new series, and I have to say, I'm riveted. It's gearing up to be the best show I've seen since The Wire. This might be AMC's best work so far with the most real characters and true emotion I've seen in a crime drama.
Brilliant Apr 9, 13, 2:23 p.m.
Whenever I work with our UK counterparts, whether on the phone or when they visit, they throw around the word "brilliant" all the time, which confuses so many people here. I have to explain that in the USA, brilliant is defined, basically, as "really, really smart, like genius smart" and that when they compliment the pimple-faced kid bagging their groceries at the bodega with a "brilliant" and they get a weird look it's because the kid can't figure out why they're calling him smart just for ringing them up.
