Just consider them make-up points for the really low hockey points!

Re: New Transformer Prime owner - Experience

I just bought that app on your recommendation! I won't be able to try it out until I get home on Sunday evening, but I'm looking forward to it! Cool, let me know what you think! It also has a really handy mode where it integrates with a google account (via a google app) so that you can get to your ...

Yep, I did the same... started on book two, but so far (~60%) it's not as gripping as the first. I was disappointed by some of the turns it took, but it still has a chance to surprise me :)

Re: New Transformer Prime owner - Experience

Very nice! I've had an original Transformer for a bit now, and was considering upgrading to a Prime... though the original does everything I want it to, and it should be getting an ICS update very soon. The tablet gmail experience is definitely great. There are also a bunch of tablet-optimized Andro...

Re: Books you're reading now

I've had time to do quite a bit of reading in the past while; mostly sci-fi and fantasy. (Hmm.. it might be time to balance out with some non-fiction!) I finally finished House of Leaves. It.. what. The ending, with the appendices, had me completely going WTF. Very enjoyable, and a very interesting ...

I don't know a single, sadly. I've been buying enough to get bulk discounts...

Maybe a dime?


I wonder if this run will be enough to drive the price up... or is there just too much supply?

That was probably the best run I've ever done; unfortunately, my efforts at min/maxing the challenge (putting those MMO skills to good use!) didn't succeed -- quest points don't seem to count :D I also didn't get credit for running 5k, even though it was done in one session..

There should be a way to say "I did this on Hell difficulty", and just have it give you double or triple points for it :)

Warning: bad grammar rant. I read lots of books. I read lots of books on my Kindle, and I'm very happy that Amazon has given authors an easy way to get their works into the hands of readers. But.

Yeah, I think points-wise it can help to look at the quests for weight training. I don't know when the quests run out or start to get repetitive though; would be nice if they were able to generate them to nudge you to vary workouts.

If your laptop has a firewire port on it as well, you should be good to go; if not, there are a few ways you can get one in there. Another option would be to find a h...
