Something is messed up, but I'm not sure why. I split the topic. Re-post your message in the old one and I'll delete the split topic and we'll be back in business.

Oh yeah... I can make exceptions, right? Or does it not allow you to bid because of that?

Well, I can change shipping on items without bids, but not others. Ugh. I don't care if they get shipped to Canada.

Hey everyone. I am working hard at keeping a business running and keeping my family in a home. Things are tight though, and I have come to the conclusion that selling some treasures is better in order to take care of my other treasures and the season at hand.

I have listed a couple of items and will be listing more things this week, I hope you take a look.

I don't have any expectations, and I know we all come to these points in life sooner or later. At the very least wish me luck Smiley

Maybe a party supply store? That's an idea.

There's no saying when the 'PS4' will come out. There are no formal announcements and no developer has stated that they are working with a dev unit. Some developers have target specs, but I'm sure Sony will announce something when Microsoft does, and that won't be this year. At least not at E3. If Nintendo blows everyone out of the water with the WiiU then you'll be sure to see some press from both companies during the summer regarding their new systems.

Point is, I don't see the PS3 coming down in price anytime soon. It does work nicely as a Blu-ray machine, and it upscales DVDs very well. The games are a bit of a perk, too. But if you don't see yourself playing the games then a $100 model will do just as well without many of the bells and whistles. Just make sure you are able to connect it to the Internet to keep the firmware updated.

Too bad you don't need 500 of the cards... lol. Cheaper than buying a printer though!

Are images changing on them? I can do 500 cards (12mil) with variable data (text) for around $100 + tax and shipping. 30mil (thickness like a credit card) is about $130 + tax and shipping. But these cards will be full bleed full color.

If just names change we could just do 16 names, leave the rest blank... you could use the blanks to show random people or something... IDK.

I know its a bit more than what you were thinking, but I'm throwing it out there for you to consider as a backup.

I didn't see this before. Its an interesting idea, so we'll see how it goes. The problem of course is that IP addresses change all the time for spammers. And they just spoof good ones, so its possible a real person is going to get blocked.

I am playing Portal 2 on the PS3, though you don't say which version you have... I would love to do some online co-op with anyone interested. I guess the PS3 version is compatible with the PC one as I can add Steam accounts to my list of friends...

Got Goldeneye or Monster Hunter or Conduit 1? We'll have to schedule a time to play online.

Sadly the original site is gone and the wayback machine didn't get it all, but here's what we're really thinking.

I had someone give me an excel file thinking they were all smart or something when I had to convert it into a database. It's still a nightmare for me.

I had a paragraph here about my disliking of the term "hardcore" and how I believe the definition is wrong - but regardless of what I think, I guess there is a user base who don't revere Mario, Zelda, and Metroid games with the same intensity as they might have in the past.  (It doesn't help that Metroid: Other M doesn't quite compare to Super Metroid...)  I don't know what the rumours of Nintendo courting Rockstar Games might mean.  Getting Capcom to make some exclusive Resident Evil games didn't change the image of the GameCube much, so unless Rockstar Games were to become a Nintendo second-party, or at least definitely exclusive, anything they make will just be another GTA: Chinatown Wars on the DS - critically acclaimed but not a killer app for a new crowd.

Nintendo doesn't like the term 'hardcore' either. And I refuse to use it as a way to describe a gamer or a game. It describes an approach to playing a game. You can play Tetris hardcore. You can play Halo casually. But Tetris does not require you to be a big fan of gaming in order to get the most out of it, while it certainly helps with Halo.

As far as Nintendo goes and their history, they actually have a pattern of releasing a console with an idea, then refining that idea. The NES, then the SNES, with mode7 and improved controller (which is pretty much the standard even today), but still retaining the core idea behind the NES. Then the N64 with 3D worlds, followed by the Gamecube which was pretty decent but the core idea didn't make it stand out from the crowd. So, if motion control was the core behind the Wii, then the next system should take the idea and refine it. Though now that all systems have motion, Nintendo needs to offer a service or something (non-gimmicky) that makes it stand out from the crowd.

From a software sales point of view, capturing the gaming enthusiast crowd is a desirable ambition. The 18 - 34 demographic has the disposable income to generate a relatively predictable sales trend. Whereas software sales on the Wii have been anything but predictable. Reggie has commented on the disabppointing sales of Metroid Other M, for example. (Though I believe story content and inconsistent waggle control had a LOT to do with that).

I don't believe for a second a blu-ray drive. Nintendo will do anything to keep from paying additional royalties.

Do television and movies display blatant warnings of exposure to violence? Nope. There is no direct corelation between witnessing fantasy violence and having violent tendencies. Those that do display violent actions already were predisposed to that behavior. We all know how the blame of young violence has jumped around from media to media over the years. Its odd though how everyone wants to avoid blaming who should carry it: the parents. Whether its movie serials of the 30s, comics of the 50s, music of the 70s, cartoons of the 80s or video games of now, the only constant has been a lack of parenting skills in keeping the kids in check.

Good luck in buying a network adapter, too. Originally produced in small supplies due to the lack of broadband penetration in the late 90s early 2000s. I bought a Dreamcast when they offered it for $100, and I couldn't find one in the stores. Though I would have just used it for Quake 3, which I was already playing on the PC so it didn't matter.

And that page the Darkwolf linked, the guy was saying something about an IP address containing letters and dashes... what's up with that? IP Addresses always contain numbers, don't they? Is that some weird European thing? MAC Addresses contain letters and dashes, which is totally different than an IP Address.
