  1. Well, we lost the old one of these. Might as well put it back up.
  2. The Weather.

    Just looked out the window. It's 1:30 in the afternoon and there's still snow on the ground. Two snowfalls in one winter? One of which actually got schools canceled? In Houston? Inconceivable! It's on mine, though.

    So it happened again. I just cleared data and uninstalled updates, and it does it again!
  5. Computer General Discussion and Tech Help

    Tell me if this has happened to you. You're watching a YouTube video on your Android phone. It pauses to buffer, yeah, okay, fine. The screen went black while it buffered, but no big deal, right? Then, a little while later, bam! No video. Can't see a thing. Audio's still going. You can get picture again by closing and opening the video/app/phone and resuming the video, but that's a temporary thing and it'll probably happen again before the end of the video. Any ideas? I Googled it and tried uninstalling the app's updates and emptying data. Problem eventually started happening again. I just did that a second time just now, so we'll see how long before this happens again. Still, any ideas? I'm using a Samsung phone, if that helps.
  6. What Are You Listening To?

    Who here's played any F-Zero game? Remember the music for the Big Blue course? Well, here's how Mario Kart 8 tackled that. For most Mario Kart music, the final lap has the track's normal music upped in tempo and shifted up a half-step. For this one, instead we get an epic sax/guitar duel. I'd say it fits better. My friend, on the other hand, isn't a fan of a saxophone in F-Zero music. From another Rooster Teeth production comes the Camp Camp Theme Song Song. (note: the theme song is clean, but if you wanna watch the show itself, profanity warning)

    Iron Man 3 Also Harry Potter, but mostly Iron Man 3

    So about a week ago they finally reopened the Krogers near my house, and we're walking through for the first time. And I gotta say, I'm liking what they've done to the place. Higher ceilings, wider self-checkout lanes, nice paint job, new tiles... It just looks nicer. I approve.
  9. The Weather.

    The fog is reflecting the sunrise in just the right way to make the sky look orange. It almost looks like a dust cloud. It's weird.
  10. What Are You Listening To?

    I have no idea how I got to this video, but... "Yakko's World", a slightly inaccurate list of nations as of 1993, sung by one of the Animaniacs. Yakko's voice actor Rob Paulsen can sing this from memory even twenty-plus years later. And yes, they did eventually make a new verse with the new nations.
  11. Ah, nooooo! Ten days after expiration... Why do I have to be lazy... Whatever. E3 reactions. ...I...didn't actually see the E3 presentations for anything other than Nintendo, but everyone's saying Microsoft and Sony lost badly to Nintendo. It went something like this: Microsoft: "Here's a better Xbox and some exclusives." Fans: *nods of being impressed* Sony: "Here's some good games that won't come out until next year." Fans: *nods of being impressed* Nintendo: "4" Fans: *standing ovation* So! What did those Japanese maniacs shell out this time? Xenoblade Chronicles 2 looks pretty neat. New Kirby game! Brings back the power-up combination mechanic from Kirby 64. Niiiiiiiiice! Also, four-player co-op is back. Pokken Tournament DX not enough? Well, they're making a core Pokemon game for the Switch! That's right; Pokemon gets a core game on a console! That enough for ya? One number: 4. Metroid Prime 4, to be specific. Hear that? That's the sound of Nintendo winning E3. With nothing but a logo. New Yoshi game! Arts and crafts this time. Cardboard and papercraft. Hidden secrets behind things in the background. Looks nice. Who's going to be in Fire Emblem Warriors? How about Marth from the original Fire Emblem, Chrom from FE: Awakening, and Corrin, Ryoma, and Xander from FE: Fates, on top of the new protagonists! Hyped yet? What does the Switch version of Skyrim have? Zelda gear. Master Sword, Hylian Shield, and Champion's Tunic confirmed. Fighting Alduin with the Master Sword? Awesome! We already knew much about the DLC packs. The new dungeon, Hard Mode, new armors, new pathfinding for the map, new enemy difficulty tier (dear Din, there are Gold Lynels now)... But here's something we didn't know: amiibo for the four Champions! Neat! They had some tournaments at E3 for Splatoon 2 and for ARMS. Great way to hype 'em up. Ever read that fanfiction where the Rabbids invade the Mario universe and team up with Mario and Mario gets a laser gun? Wait, that's not a fanfiction? It's a real thing? DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! Wanna play Rocket League on the Switch but are worried there won't be enough players? Fear not! Cross-Platform Play! Use your Switch to play rocket-car-soccer against someone on their Xbox! If Nintendo didn't win E3 with Metroid Prime 4, they sure as heck won with Super Mario Odyssey and it's showstopping jazz number! Hats off to you, Nintendo, for being awesome. And that's not even getting into stuff they didn't show in the showcase, like the Metroid II remake, the Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga port, and a new game called Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido, plus the other new games they already revealed prior like Ever Oasis, Hey! Pikmin, and Miitopia.

    So, when you bottom line it, Susan's hair functions like Tedd's gauntlet? Storing magic and then giving it to her in one burst to give her a power boost?
  14. Things That Make You Happy

    I know I revives the weather thread for this, but Snow! In Houston! This almost never happens! It's been forever since I heard the crunch of snow under my feet. I missed this.
  15. The Weather.

    Just a heads up: it is currently cold enough to have snow in Houston. I know! This almost never happens! It'll be gone tomorrow, so I'm going outside while it's still here.
  16. What Are You Listening To?

    A couple songs I want to download, both from the RWBY Volume 4 soundtrack. The Volume 4 opening theme, "Let's Just Live", about moving on after losing someone. Here's a lyrics video. "Move Onward, Not There Yet". We'll miss you, Monty. Then there's Weiss's solo song, "This Life is Mine". It starts as more of a ballad and gets progressively more intense, going to opera, adding guitars, then becoming full rock at the end.
  17. Things That Make You Happy

    Less 'happy', more 'immensely relieved'. A while ago, my laptop charger cord stopped working. You had to have it at exactly the right position for it to do anything, else it wouldn't work. So I put my files on a flash drive to use the family's main computer. Then the flash drive died a few days ago, leaving me with the worrying possibility of losing everything. The only hope was that I copied the files from my laptop instead of cut and pasted them. Well, I just got a new laptop charger yesterday, and my stuff's still there. YAY! ...well, I mean I lost things I've done on the flash drive since the move, but at least I still have most of it. Oh, and there's pizza in the fridge. Bonus!
  18. Computer General Discussion and Tech Help

    Yes and yes. That flash drive doesn't exist as far as entire other computers are concerned, and other flash drives work fine. Still nothing.
  19. Computer General Discussion and Tech Help

    So, anyone know what to do when your flash drive refuses to accept power? Because from what the Geek Squad experts can tell, mine isn't getting power when I plug it into a computer, and thus the computer doesn't recognize that I've plugged anything in at all. Is this gonna be a cheap fix, a pricey fix, or am I gonna have to give up on it?
  20. Things that make you worried.

    The possibility of losing all my files. I keep my files on a flash drive. Since my laptop charger stopped working, the only place to actually access the files is on the family's shared computer, and even though I have a separate profile there, I haven't copied my files to the computer (for security or memory purposes I couldn't say; they download a lot of games on the main profile but I'm kinda paranoid about people poking through my files, so...both?). The other day I was using my flash drive. Just typing some story stuff, ya know? Then the computer bluescreens and reboots. I open my profile again, it checks the drive as part of standart boot-up procedures, and it's like "Device may be damaged. Scan and fix? Y/N" or something like that. Standard stuff; I'd seen that prompt for a different flash drive on my laptop, so I know it's okay. I said "sure". I don't want my stuff damaged. It does the scan and says "no problems detected". I go back to what I was doing. Then when I'm done, I close everything, click "eject drive" so it's safe to remove it, wait for it to say it's safe to remove it, and then remove it. Don't wanna corrupt files by being hasty. Cut to today, I plug the flash drive in to get to my résumé and references for a job application. Doesn't recognize that the flash drive is plugged in. The flash drive has an orange light that lights up if it's in use. Didn't turn on. I try my profile, I try the main profile, I even try my brother's computer. Nope. So now I have three options, in increasing order of unacceptable-ness: either ask Google for help, take it to Best Buy or Fry's and hope they can figure it out, or lose everything. I'm <understatement>just a little bit upset</understatement> at the idea. [Edit] Okay, I tried a couple of Google solutions. Checking diskmgmt.msc and devmgmt.msc doesn't turn up anything. Using the command prompt to look for drives doesn't turn up anything. Downloading and using the EaseUS data recovery program didn't turn up anything. As far as the computer is concerned, I didn't plug anything in at all. Other flash drives work fine. I suppose the next step is asking Best Buy for a more informed (and expensive) answer. My résumé, my stories and notes, my Minecraft saves, my backlog of EGS strip slays, other things of varying importance... Not even 8 gigs worth of stuff, but it's my stuff.

    Did you know that The Rock could sing? No? Well then, you're welcome. (enable captions for lyrics)
  23. What Are You Listening To?

    Downloading some famous movie themes by John Williams and some famous movie themes not by John Williams. Then I noticed this was in my recommendations again, so I decided to listen to it again. It's two tracks from the end of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, titled "Your Father Would Be Proud" and "Hope", cut together. I can't not tear up listening to this. [Edit: Mashup video appears to have been taken down. I linked to the individual parts instead] Also, looking around, I found this. You ever hear that one song on TV but can't remember the name? Here's part 1. Hope it helps.
  24. What Are You Ingesting?

    I don't remember ever having grape soda. Either I've never had it, or I just plain don't remember when I did. Tastes alright.
  25. The Weather.

    Everything's fine. The house survived a lot better than it did in last year's storm (only because the flooding got bad enough to leak into the one room that was lower than the rest; it didn't flood nearly that badly this time, and we sandbagged spot anyway). We once again confirmed the leaky spots in the attic, but that's a problem for the slumlo- er, landlord, and the realtors. Heh. I should probably update that tag, shouldn't I? It's just plain inaccurate. Rations taste horrible; why didn't I ask for emergency donuts?
