Anyone else out there use 64 bit Chrome under Windows, and if so have you been experiencing a lot of issues since the last update? I'm trying to determine if I have an extension that's not playing nice or what, but I have a lot of issues with sites hanging. If I close Chrome and go into the task manager and kill any 'background' Chrome processes and then restart the browser everything works for an hour or so, then I have to do it all over again.

Trying to decide if it's just me or if this version of Chrome is wonky.

Every once in a while some fragment of The IT Crowd comes up in conversation and I start to giggle. That show never gets old.

In this case it was talking about the Orion rocket and how they were going to try turning the valves off and on again. "Have you tried turning it off and on?" And that reminded me of the time when Roy had made a bet he wouldn't say that for a day and then they somehow wind up in a bomb situation where Roy is in danger of being blown to bits and the guy running the bomb disarming robot is having problems with his computer. And Roy asks him about it and he says its running Vista and Moss shouts "We're gonna die!"

Y'know what? Let's just watch it together!

Chromecast owners/buyers can get 2 months of free Hulu Plus and 3 months of Google Music. You have to redeem this stuff on a machine that can 'see' your Chromecast. (Click the Redeem Offers button.) It's open to new Hulu/Google Music subscribers only, but it's easy enough to create a new Hulu account to take advantage, I guess.

Anyone used this git client? I just started and it seems pretty good. I like that (since it's done in java) everyone on the team can use the same client. 

It's not free but hey, it's the company's money after all.

But I'm still a git noob so maybe it has issues that I'm not aware of.

I ~finally~ got online in Driveclub for the PS4 long enough to form a club: W O M B A T 

But it's not "active" because I'm the only one in it. :( Is anyone else planning on playing this game, maybe when (if?) the PS+ version comes out? If so I'll keep the club, but if not I'll shut it and join some random club. I think AGE has one.

(You need to be in a Club to unlock certain cars.)

Let me know!

Oh, as for the name, I tried W.O.M.B.A.T. as if it stood for something mysterious and important, but it wouldn't let me us punctuation so I settled for all caps with spaces between the letters.

Today's random food post... I watch this locally produced show called Flavor, NC. It's 1 part cooking show and 1 part 'eat local' show. Every episode they showcase some North Carolina-based food producer (usually a farm or something but they've done seafood too) and then make some dishes using the food produced there.

The other day I saw one about Baker's Peanuts. As a Yankee the idea that peanuts can be grown near where I now live is pretty amazing. LOL 

The place is two hours away from us so I mail-ordered some peanut brittle, Caronlina cajun peanuts and "Blister fried" peanuts. The box arrived today. So far we just sampled the peanut brittle and it is amazeballs. But they actually showed it being made on Flavor, NC so I know why. Sugar, vanilla and lots of butter go into it.

Looking forward to trying the other products. The big downside so far is that shipping was utterly ridiculous. My order was $36 or so and $15 of that was shipping! If we like this stuff I'm going to see if i can source it locally. Or maybe just take a road trip out there and stock up.

Angela has talked to me about boiled peanuts, which sound weird but I'd like to try them. Apparently even further down south you can get boiled peanuts at road-side stands.___

Hey #Destiny  players. Any idea how to complete a bounty that requires you to kill a strike boss? I got a bounty to Defeat Sepiks Prime in The Devil's Lair (the Earth Strike). I queued for it and me and two random dudes when through it and completed the Strike. But I didn't complete the Bounty. 

I didn't land the killing blow... could that be it? I didn't Join a Fireteam ahead of time.. could it be that? A little frustrated. Though I did get some good loot for my trouble so that's something!

I think I mentioned this Kickstarter project once before, though maybe I just meant to.

They're looking for $50,000 and are at $37,000 with 8 days to go, so if you've thought about it, now's the time to pull out your checkbook I guess.

Next week is a great time to grab and Xbox One, as 'select retailers' are throwing in a free game of your choice with a purchase. This even applies to the Forza 5 or Madden 15 bundle; you still get a 2nd free game.

Microsoft REALLY wants to catch up to Sony.

About an hour ago Chrome suddenly started auto-playing YouTube videos on several of my machines (granted with synced settings). My boss told me it started doing the same thing for him last night.

Has anyone else seen this and has anyone found a fix? I tried restarting Chrome and even rebooted my system but no joy. It doesn't seem to be limited to a particular site, either. 

I'm seeing there are extensions that stop videos from auto-playing but I'd rather not use one if I can avoid it.

Any ideas? So weird and so random.

Got an email about this game Stash this morning. It's a turn-based MMO with housing and crafting and stuff that looks interesting. Something different.

They're running a kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/frogdice/stash-no-loot-left-behind-pc-mac-linux-consoles) with a pretty modest goal of $50,000

They note in their email this is their 3rd kickstarter and say their earlier games (Dungeon of Elements and Tower of Elements 2) shipped on-time. 

Here's the main page: http://frogdice.com/stashsplash/splash.html

I thought of +Jane Smith when I first saw it. 

I'm guessing the overland stuff, in particular, is using very early prototype art for the characters and stuff.

Interesting quote from this piece:

“When combining life-to-date sales of Xbox One and PS4 after nine months, and comparing them to the combined totals of nine months of sales for Xbox 360 and PS3, sales of the newest consoles are larger than the prior generation by close to 80 percent,” said Callahan.

Remember all the "consoles are dead" stories we had to suffer through before these machines launched?  WRONG! People were just ready for something new.

Any wireless security experts around? I was looking at my router today and it said there were 30 attached devices, which seemed a little extreme even for our nerdy household.

Upon closer inspection I saw 11 connections from the same MAC address, all connected to different IP addresses. Most of them were 192.168.1 address (the private IPs my network uses) but others were 10.187., 10.174. and other 10. addresses

In many cases the device name is ANDROID-6226D263909CE581 but sometimes it is UNKNOWN.

I can't figure out what this is, and mostly I want to know if some neighbor has sniffed out my password. Our security is set to WPA2-PSK [AES] but I'm not using MAC address filtering. 

Any thoughts?

I almost ruined FF14 for myself. Caught myself trolling the "Worlds" forums looking for a random guild to join. Joining a guild is always the death knell for me in an MMO because then I feel obligated to log in, so I don't log in due to my rebellious nature. :)

So +Aaron Couture was going on about how he was going to try FF14 again even though he hates it, and +Dusty Monk has been talking about his time back too. 

So I caved. I tried to roll a new character on Dusty's server but it was closed to new characters, and I only found that out after I'd spent time crafting my new guy and had become attached, so I just started on Marlboro at random.

I'm having a hell of a time so far. Started late last night and hit level 14 this afternoon. That means GuildLeve's (mini-instances basically) have been unlocked and I've been queuing to PUG them and been having fun. 

They've also added (??) level 50 boss encounters in the open world. At least they seem new to me. These guys don't seem to be aggro so they don't grief us lowbies trying to level up, but it's fun watching a swarm of level 50 toons descend onthe... more »

And it's such a beautiful game. I forget that when I'm away from it... That dark rainy shot, I wish I'd had some kind of capture tool running because there was this lighthouse that just looked gorgeous as the beams from it's light swathed through the rain....___

Twitch is going to delete your old streams! BWAHAHAHAA!

Increased Rolling Storage
+ Highlights will be saved indefinitely; however, they will now be limited to 2 hours in length. All prior highlights will be saved regardless of length. 

+ Increasing storage comes at a cost, and to make this change we have to remove the “Save Forever” option entirely for past broadcasts. 

+ Existing past broadcasts will be removed from Twitch servers beginning three weeks from today. 

============================================
I guess a two hour "highlight' covers most of us though.

So if you stream for 4 hours couldn't you just save it as 2 2-hour highlight reels?

I guess Wednesday is my ranty day. Talking about Wildstar and how "everyone" is quitting (even though everyone isn't).

Really enjoying my new phone (the LG G3) and in particular the camera. With my old phone, the ancient Galaxy Nexus, the camera seemed to get steadily worse as the OS was updated, to the point where it was useless unless you subject was completely still.

Now... MORE PICS OF MY DOG! lol(a)

It took me until TONIGHT to notice the "Daily Login Reward" section of that store window that pops up every time you log into #Firefall. Boy do I feel dumb!

So the level cap is 20 but here's a level 29 titan. WTF, right?

Well if you watch carefully when the dude is looking at his paper doll, there's a tooltip that says "To increase your level above 20, find and equip armor which contains Light."

and also that after cap, exp creates motes of light. 

So I guess character cap is 20 but gear cap is some soft number that is at least 29...

I'm still really excited about Destiny...  though I'm troubled by the emphasis on Raids -- no matchmaking and they take 'a couple of hours' for you and 5 friends.
