Re: [Grubb's] Random Thoughts of the Day

Oh man, I forgot about that thing! It rode underneath my feet all the way from Japan back to Chicago. I can't believe they let me do that. It stuck out into the aisle an inch or two!

Re: [Grubb's] Random Thoughts of the Day

lmaooo I could barely make out the address too, and it's my own address. very impressed with the USPS Apparently the Japanese postal service knows how to decode "mojibake" which is the result of interpreting Shift-JIS (and perhaps other encodings) as though it's US-ASCII. USPS knows how to convert ...

Re: [Grubb's] Random Thoughts of the Day

I remember playing So Deep on Stepmania (or was it DWI?) before I played it on DDRMAX. Whoever transcribed the chart gave it a rating of 10. I remember us all looking at it thinking, "What's a 10?!" And then we played it. And then we died. Supposedly it was rated 10 on the location test build of DD...

Re: Let's rank 12s!

They could just pull a Pump It Up and keep raising the highest difficulty level as needed. Dignity is a 22 and is the hardest thing on the game? Nah, now we have a 23. Not hard enough for you? How about a 24? Maybe a 25. How about a 26?

Re: [Grubb's] Random Thoughts of the Day

Well, you have to essentially set up everything yourself, but the same retirement vehicles are available to you that are available to any other company to set up. The simplest is to have a personal IRA (ROTH or Traditional) and then have your company provide either an SEP or SIMPLE IRA if/when the c...

Re: [Grubb's] Random Thoughts of the Day

Day trading is basically gambling. You're looking for "advantage" over the house that's inherent in the "game" and trying to exploit it, then you leave the table when you no longer have "advantage". Buy and hold is a whole different ballgame. You're not going to get the kind of crazy returns you can...

Re: People that bought these Vibram FiveFinger shoes might be entitled to some refund

I assume it was a bot post. Either that or a legitimate user accidentally got swept up in a bot purge.

Re: What the heck is up with these bots?

I went ahead and changed the settings to require admin approval. I guess Ho can start getting some emails. Re-captcha is clearly broken. I'm convinced it just gets kept around because Google uses it to train their machine vision systems. I don't think it's particularly effective as a CAPTCHA anymore.

Re: What the heck is up with these bots?

I'm pretty sure re:captcha is just a tool for Google to automate and train their "machine vision" systems at this point. I have my doubts as to how effective of a CAPTCHA it really is.

Re: Arcade machine flashing Color test bars

Soooo...DDR expects the card to be in slot 2. I don't remember whether that's the top or the bottom.

Other games on that platform using a flash card (DM, GF) expect the card to be in slot 1 as you might otherwise expect.

Re: Arcade machine flashing Color test bars

Windows can't talk to linear flash cards without special software. They are not usable as normal flash drives like ATA flash cards are. If it doesn't go in all the way, check that it's keyed the same as the original card. PCMCIA cards can be keyed for 3V, 5V, or universal operation. There's also a s...

Re: Arcade machine flashing Color test bars

If you've forced the system to re-write the flash card from the installation data and it still says it's bad and won't proceed, then your card might actually be bad. I've never seen a bootleg that failed on the flash card check, but then Megamix was "special" since they hacked up all the graphics an...
