And the continous "You don't need to tell me how it works, becaause I just need you to tell me how to X" where if she actually heard how it works, I would not have to explain X (or come over and do it) 3 or 4 times a month.


Yeah, when I move out I'm getting the remote desktop client working on all of my parent's computers and laptops. Then I can tell them to just watch and not touch anything.

Oooh, that's an idea... though I'm not sure if it'lll work, the internet in our area (my mother too) has common (and dynamic) IP no. towards the outside, so I'm not sure if I can connect remotely.

There are services like go2mypc and logmein that can solve the dynamic IP problem by having a client on your mom's computer updating their network with her IP address, so when you use their network to connect, they know her IP address. I think that they also work on port 80, so you don't have to worry about ISP/Firewall configs.

From what I've seen so far we don't have any ISP Firewalll worries (at least I''ve not encountered any problems that wasn't from my own router or firewall).

I think I'lll have to look at that when I get home and have an opportunity to actually play with them :)

Sometimes I don't understand why often people get mad at me if I go sarcasting on people who do stupid errors (like standing in obvious bad stuff), and consider me an Elitist for demanding a bit of common sense.

I should really stop joining trade pugs and give up on alt runs.

Need new comics to read, but dont want anything that is mainstream DC or Marvel.

Waiting for new issues of MTMTE is worse than a crack addiction...

Picked up the first issues of manhattan projects, didnt like it. Do like The Wake but its only two issues in. Wondering about Jupiters Legacy...

I didn't like Manhattan Projects much either. First one that's been pretty popular that I just wasn't able to get into. I'm not a DC/Marvel person either. I read Hawkeye and Batwoman, nothing more.

I just finished Y: The Last Man yesterday, and I think I'm up to date on every other series I read, so I'll probably be doing nothing but work my way through Transmetropolitan for a while.

I swore off Marvel after Civil War... I am picking up Trinity War from DC, but still not enough to actually pick up any of the DC titles -- In fact, even though I'm a huge batman fanboy, I don't think I've picked any of his comics in 10 years or more.

Most of my batman comics are from their limited-series and one shots, like the long halloween, dark knight returns, the man who laughs, et al.

The last Marvel title that I truly enjoyed was The Punisher, under their MAX label, and only the first 60 issues, when it was penned by Garth Ennis, so I don't think that counts.

keep hearing good things about hawkeye, but still can't see myself picking it up.

Edit: might have found something... Picked up hellboy tpb vol 1 and loving it.

Spending an hour on Primordius and not killing him on heroic, after one-shotting him for the first kill a week or so ago >.>

Primordius can be a very RNG fight, depending on which combination of abilities you end up. Sometimes it's a complete joke, sometimes it will stress the hell out of your healers ;)

It's alright, Fetzie...took us two weeks to get a repeat on Lei Shen Heroic and even then...we extended the lockout and it still took us the better part of 7 hours...

Hate trying to carry new people into a fight in which two really don't fully understand their class's full repitore of abilities...

Oh yeah, I've got a bunch of old Batman graphic novels and specials. Hush, Long Halloween, Killing Joke, Arkham Asylum, Year One, etc. Not interested in the ongoing series, though. Batwoman I picked up for the recommendations I kept seeing, and I kept it going for the good character and J H Williams III's art - though now he mostly just writes it and Amy Reeder's doing the artwork. Not sure how long I'll stick with it.

Oh, I forgot about another DC title I do like. Dial H, by China Miéville. It's just as weird as you'd expect from Miéville. Unfortunately it's been cancelled after 15 issues.

As for Hawkeye... You should check it out. David Aja's retro art and Matt Fraction's writing are both brilliant. It's not about him as a superhero, it's about Clint Barton when he's not on the job, and it's one of the funnier comics out there.

It is about getting better, you have to play better to counter bad combinations of abilities ;)
