Re: Online Mattress Purchases

IMHO I wouldn't suggest a mattress topper for anyone. For one they move around and become a pain. If a mattress is bad, say you have a busted spring or a permanent dip in it a topper wouldn't fix this. In fact it just may compound the issue. A good mattress, one that you feel is right for you, shoul...

Re: Online Mattress Purchases

I have a Purple (King size BTW) I absolutely love it. I based my decision primarily on Sleepopolis reviews. The review from Sleepopolis was spot on for the Purple. The Purple is kind of weird at first, its not like a memory foam feel, but something more firmer. Also I sweat when I sleep so the uniqu...

On the house hunt hard. I've seen 5 properties so far. Have two lined up for this afternoon and three for tomorrow. I'm exhausted already. Maybe I'm being just too damned picky! I keep telling myself I wont get roped into something I wont like in 15 years.

Re: Andromeda

Same. I'm full biotic. Maxed all weapons. But I think the gist is so you can build out different builds like dadRyder had the start. So now I have a full Biotic build, a Full Tech build, and A Full Infiltrator build.

In fact that is currently what I use Win 10 in Kiosk mode. It easy to set up and maintain.

Before I did this I to a clean snapshot of a fresh install and maintained it. It only had essential items. I had no use for whats installed on the main PC I was just using the VM for browsing.

Looks like Bioware will be making an announcement on April 4 with plans on support moving forward. They still want bug reports sent to Answers HQ.

So it looks like we probably wont have a patch until then at the earliest. :/

Having 3 powers at your disposal instead of 8 seems very limiting, especially given how many are offered. This is one thing that's got me thinking, because I literally use just three powers: Concussive Shot, Overload, and Incinerate. That's it. I've dumped points into Assault Rifles and Sniper Rifl...

That's my new-video-card budget in any case, so I don't have the money to get a new-ish console any time soon even if I wanted to. QFT. Even though ...
