Weird mail server problem

28 February 2018 - 02:24 PM

This problem resolved itself without intervention but I wanted to run it by you bit heads to see what you think about it.

My wife tried to access her online email on her late model MacBook Pro using a bookmark both in Safari and Firefox yet each time failed with a "Server not found" error.  So far I would say "Internet congestion", but it gets strange.  

The iPad and the laptop share the same router.  She could access the mail website via her iPad and her iPhone 6 SE.  She could send herself an email using her iPad and then read it on her iPad.  But still she could not connect to the mail websites on the MacBook Pro.  

I don't understand how that could happen unless the iPad was syncing with the iPhone and had the iPhone retrieve the information and transfer it back to the iPad.  Is that possible?  If not what was going on?

Fallout 4

22 December 2017 - 11:16 AM

OK, I've gone and got myself addicted again, I can't set Fallout 4 down.  It becomes 3 hours after my bedtime and I'm still, "just this one more thing, then I'll knock off..."  Can't wait to pick it up again the next day ASAP.  I've joined the Minutemen and now I'm nation building from the ground up.  I just got to the point where I can assign a settler to start a supply line to my main workshop which really opens up the game as far as my settlers are concerned.  Those pathetic wretches are going to have it pretty good from now on.

I had my T-45b power armor stolen!  I had no idea that could happen!  Some fraking NPC walked off with it without a power core, but I found a frame early on in the game and had the common sense to save it.  Since then I've killed a couple of guys in power armor and swiped the armor off the frames for a combined full set, so now I have a frame with mixed T-51a and Raider armor.  Still works great, but I wish I had my own original armor back.  These days I either keep the power armor in the vault when I don't need it, or do a hard save every time I step out of it.  I wonder what else I'm unwittingly leaving my self open to.

Anyway, if you like a shooter RPG with lots of depth, detail and history, this is your game.  Get it on sale this Christmas!  Battle Cat recommended.

Markek, regarding your "unfortunate banning incident", I've reported the guilty moderator to Robot Santa so he will be spending this Christmas in an undisclosed underground bunker.

[EDIT: I've split out these posts from another thread and put them here.  This is age inappropriate for the original poster as there is a risk his kid may see it if he comes back.]

Flight Sims and Aerial Combat Games With Joystick Control

01 July 2017 - 08:39 PM

Nope this is not a list, it's a request for game recommendations because I bought a Thrustmaster T16000 FCS flight stick.  Right now I'm taking flying lessons in MS Flight Simulator that I got for cheap.  When I catch on, I'll be needing to use my new mad skilz to kill things and blow them to smithereens.  Cause, you know... carnage is best served from 15,000 feet.  I'd like some recommendations for aerial combat training sims and aerial combat games.  The one constraining requirement for your suggestions is that they must work with a joystick.  So if you guys would be so kind, I'd really appreciate you sharing your experiences and recommendations.

And if it helps, I'm sorry I called you forumites all those names and Agonized you and Tantalus deviced your dogs.  Well, except for Dirty Harry that is.

Mr. Dooves game music

17 June 2017 - 11:46 AM

I would have this Monkey Folk's man-babies.  Mr. Dooves has a pretty awesome voice and he does music from lots of different games.  This is for first person shooters, played almost every game in this one.  A musical history of video games, and horror.  A treat for Skyrim fans, and you Bendy and the Ink Machine fans.  Ooga chaka.
