Req: ME3 on Steam. This Origin nonsense is ... nonsense. All of my other games are on Steam, I don't want to install another application to handle one game.

I certainly agree with this.

It was 51 degrees today, but tomorrow we're supposedly getting 5-8 inches of snow. I test-fired the snowblower ... took a little encouragement (guess that's what happens when the carb has been dry for almost a year), but it's running nice and strong.

Wishing I would get off my ass and put all this HD projector, HTIB, Logitech Z5500, and Moto Triumph up for sale. I think I'm going to use part of the money for an SSD and part to go towards a large-ish monitor / HDTV. I really miss my old 42" Westy as a computer monitor.

it's sad that John Parr makes a remake of St Elmo's Fire into Tim Tebow's Fire... ugh..

I don't follow football, but I see this Tim Tebow's name all over the place, especially from the "yay Jesus" crowd. What is it about this guy? Is he a particularly good player, or is it that he just found a great way to market himself? I mean, you can easily gain millions of fans if you bring supernatural beings into the picture ...

About to "chat" with Verizon. Added a 4th line to get my sister-in-law a new phone last night & of course they have to ship it. Asked to have it shipped to work and verified the address. Instead they are shipping it to my apartment and no one will be home. Given that UPS & FedEx like to leave packages w/o getting a signature, I'm not to happy. Really don't want to have to file a claim saying someone stole an iPhone 4S.

Well, I'd just link the Wikipedia page, but well...

Basically, he's a good boy son of a couple of devout believers (he was born in the Philippines while his parents were missionaries) that was the "star" QB for the Florida Gators back when he was in college. The Gators got a couple of BCS championships and he earned a Heisman during his tenure. Tebow is a supposed dual-threat because he's one of those Quarterbacks that can also sack up and run the ball himself. Religion's a big part of his life, he puts bible verses on the black stripes below his eyes, and prays before and after every game. He is definitely religious, and if it is an act, he's very good at it. I think he even goes with his father on missionary trips in the off-season (or at least did when he was in college).

As far as his professional career, he managed an 8-5 run during the regular season after the Broncos' main quarterback got hurt in their third straight loss at the beginning of the season. He's not a particularly good passer (his form is horrible) but has managed to get a fair amount of victories anyway thanks to the aforementioned dual-threat status. Personally, I don't think he's a very skilled QB, more like a TE that can throw the ball. Tebow has almost said as much, saying that in the off-season, he's going to work on his throwing.

Flipped the switch and turned our websites back on after yesterday's SOPA/PIPA protest.

Hello, world.
