    We're with Mediacom. It's not a bad server. Just expensive as hell. I pay about $115 every month for it. I was forced to upgrade to unlimited bandwidth a couple years ago, because we stream shit all the time (I'm a YouTube addict) and @Rain Dew plays FF14 all the time. So between streaming, YouTube, and FF14, our previous plan just didn't give us enough bandwidth. I wish it did, because it was only $50 per month.

    Also where we live Mediacom is the only company that covers our area. 

  2. Everything @The Blackangel said is true. Pit Bulls are cuddly, affectionate, big babies.  They get their bad rap from the dog fighting community and from the news. The new LOVES to sensationalize bad stories, which include dog bites.  If you look carefully at news articles that talk about someone or someone's pet being attacked you will notice that if the breed of dog is not a Pit Bull then news will NOT mention the dog breed.  If it is was a Pit Bull then the news jumps all over it.  You also have to take in account reports of dog bites.  If you get bit by a small dog and hardly an damage was done which does not require going to the doctor, it will not be reported. If a big dog bites you, you are more likely to see a doctor and it will be reported.  I had a female Chihuahua who loved me and only tolerated other. She has bitten BOTH my mom once and my wife twice. As for my wife's Pit Bull she has NEVER bitten everyone. In fact when my wife's Pit Bull interacts with other people she loves to go up to them to get petted. Also at home we have another Chihuahua (male) who thinks he owns her (he loves her to death) and has on many occasions chased her around. He will also growl at her if he wants her spot, does not want her eating with him at the same time as him, or if he does not want her near him. She always demurs to him. She will just get up and go somewhere else.  If you need one more example we recently got two new puppies, another Chihuahua and an English Bulldog.  Our male chihuahua hates her, the other puppy loves to play with her, and the Pit Bull is not fond of her but tolerates her and occasionally plays with her.  The male chihuahua growls and stands his ground if the Bulldog comes anywhere near him.  If the Bull Dog comes near our Pit and she does not feel like playing she will literally get up and walk away. Many Many times when the Bulldog jumps up on the couch and the Pit is laying on it, the pit will jump down and lay on the floor yielding the couch to the Bulldog. Our Pit is a big pushover. 

    Pit Bulls: Why the Bad (and Inaccurate) Reputation? (foundanimals.org)

    This article is a good one that debunks the myth of PIt Bulls getting a bad rap.  To point out a few things that they talk about:

    1. "Other mischaracterized canines include rescue dogs like St. Bernards and German Shepherds."

    2.  Pet experts staunchly opposed to policies that discriminate based on breed. The following groups agree: 

    Humane Society of the United States

    American Bar Association

    American Kennel Club

    American Veterinary Medical Association

    American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior

    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

    National Animal Control Association

    National Canine Research Council

    US Department of Housing and Urban Development

    The Obama Administration

    Do you lean back a little in your recliner when you game, or sit upright? Have you found that this product is ideal for playing at particular angles, or adjusts well to your chosen posture?

    Do you ever try using it on a couch instead of your recliner? Do you find that works better because it is roomier?

    If any of them get it, I hope you will let us know how it goes?


    I am able to recline enough that i am comfortable. If you are big like me it really works when you have two arm rests. I have not tried it on the couch yet.

    Let's be honest here the only company that were (and still are) in dire need for exclusive games is Microsoft, What noteworthy games have they put out on the xbox one? Forza, gears maybe halo 5 but i don't know man. How many will be remembered in 10-15 years time, opposed to sony their ps4 exclusives, bet quite a few will be rememberd fondly off.

    Microsoft managed to turn it around with forza horzion 5 and halo infinite so let's hope for them ( and us as gamers) it continues because the only way to catch up with sony is offering games that are a must buy that you can play nowhere else. 

    I just hope microsoft gives the devs freedom to create what they want, i don't want to see for example obsidian making a sports game just like they did with rare turning one of the most iconic studios into making kinect games. Have obsidian make a new fall out game, new vegas is still my favourite fallout game so why the hell not.


    Xbox has put out the Fable Series. I would consider that note worthy, especially sense there are 4 games (one on kinect), and there is talks of a new one coming out (most likely a reboot). When I heard talks about another Fable being released I wanted to get a Xbox One X simply because of Fable. 

  5. I have one of these and I love it. When I’m on my laptop and just laying on the couch and playing it I lose not only my phone but the tv remote as well. So the sides of this comes in really handy to hold both. I also like how it elevates my laptop and it makes gaming in a recliner so much easier and more comfortable. If I’m in my recliner I’m not only having to deal with a hot laptop, has to be plugged in to play FF14, but also a cooling fan. This couch Cycon really really helps keep it all together and lets me stay really comfortable. 

  6. Walmart sells them at around $1,000 plus. Scalpers are asking a lot less than Walmart is. 
    @The Blackangel and I were lucky enough to have gotten a Xbox series S recently. We were at Best Buy looking for gaming headsets because my dog Bella chewed up both of ours. We came across the one and only Xbox series S that someone had returned. We went ahead and snagged it and J live playing on it 🤗

    I almost fell for it. I was looking at dog pictures in a group and this lady said she got promoted at her job and wants to give away these free PS5s. I contacted her and she said it would just be 50 for shipping. I got a little suspicious and she said she had no reason to scam me since she knows how hard it is to make bread. I did some research on FB and saw that other accounts posted the same pics and message. I figured out it was a scam. I almost fell for it because I have wanted a PS5 so bad, for so long.

    I'm beginning to give up on getting a PS5. I got a Switch and have been collecting for the Switch and PS4. Sony will probably never have PS5 readily available. 

    After @The Blackangel and I got scammed on a bird if there is something on CL that I’m interested in but worried it might be a scam is to ask the person to write write something and then have them hold up the sign by whatever it is they are selling and have someone take their picture and send it to me. 
    So far when I ask for this no one took me up on the offer so it was evident that they were scammers.

    I got @Rain Dew a custom Xbox controller for xmas. It's compatible with both the Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S. Mainly it's just a color scheme. You pick out the colors you want on any given part, and pay for it. Hers looks a little goofy to me, but she loves it.

    I absolutely love the controller and loved the fact that I was able to pick the colors for the controller.

    You don't really need to do all that in a day on play do you? It's more like trying to rush everything and it's definitely going to wear you out. 

    For the palace of the dead they do it by floors. With the boss being on every 10th floor. 
    You don’t need to do it all in one day. In fact after you completed 10 floors the game exits you out of the dng. Then you can decide if you want to do more. 
    for some reason doing floors 50 up just tire me out, even of it’s just one run from 50 to 60.

    I actually felt like Square Enix needed to add the option of being able to skip some of the quests to make the gamers life a little easier but no, it's not going to happen. 

    Square Enix does have the option to skip the main scenarios so you can go straight to the new main quest. You can even buy level up quest classes to get you leveled up to h highest rank that is currently out. Though doing this you miss out on some of the armor.

    These have been out sense before Stormblood I believe.
