  1. http://starwarsbattlefront.filefront.com/files/Star_Wars_Battlefront;58index Filefront was the primary distribution site for Battlefront 1 & 2 while they were big, its not a spam website. That link is the Battlefront 1 file directory, if there's anything, it would probably be in there.
  2. Hopefully they are spending a lot of time on the quality like the video claims. But claims like that aren't too hard to make in a 3 minute video.
  3. Active Shooter situation currently going on in Washington DC. http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/police-search-for-active-shooter-on-grounds-of-washington-navy-yard-in-southeast-dc/2013/09/16/b1d72b9a-1ecb-11e3-b7d1-7153ad47b549_story.html I'm a couple miles away in Arlington, but I had a friend in DC say he's seen lines and lines of unmarked and marked Fed. police agencies vehicles heading for the area. Apparently there was a group of undercover "delivery vans" with full lights and sirens passing at one point. News is saying largest police presence in the city since 9/11. Possibly 4 deaths, 10 injured. Witness is saying it may have begun with shooting into cafeteria. Still considered active shooter situation with possible second gunman still on the lose, shots, unknown shooter have been heard in the past 30 minutes.
  4. I just finished: Inside the Jihad - its a bit outdated being from 2007, but if you ignore all of the talk about governmental change not being possible in places like Egypt and Syria, it does give a good and interesting look at the reaction of the Middle East to 9/11, as well as major opinions held by different radical groups in the region over the past 50 or so years. Starbuck'd One of the most interesting books I've read recently, its a fairly objective case study of Starbucks, its effect on society and the industries connected with starbucks and the coffee industry in general. If you want to love or hate starbucks after reading it, you'll be out of luck, because it leaves starbucks in a very grey shade. Through the Bramblebush - its about law school, unless you're going to law school you won't care. Modern Russia - a basic introduction to Russian society and history over the past 200 or so years. As with the first, its outdated being from 2003, and barely even discussing Putin, but historically and socially it was quite fascinating for a lay person.
  5. Regardless of what they call it, something tells me that it will be known commonly as battlefront 3
  6. This place might become more than the ghost town that it is now...
  7. Its no discovery, but I do agree that there is a lot of good and not that much meh in it.
  8. I'm looking forward to the Germany-Greece game. Regardless of who the victor is, Greece is still Germany's economic bitch.
  9. I rarely have issues not being able to play games offline, usually the only times are when games require Games For Windows, and disable the ability to save or load when not connected to their servers *cough* red faction guerrilla *cough*
  10. I haven't seen it but apparently their marketing has been damned effective on me since my entire dream last night was about it. We won by the way, my shopping mall that somehow turned into a derelict capital ship in one of my most bizarre dream transitions ever managed to survive its first encounter with the aliens aboard the Prometheus and return home to rally reinforcements. The highlight of my dream movie thing was the fact that apparently beer bottles were acceptable ammunition for my ship's one single cannon, which happened to be a hole in the side of the ship that I kicked things through to shoot them.
  11. We can either vote for a left/moderate republican or a right/moderate democrat. So basically the same person. Here's the political compass of the election this year. Not a great source but an easy source. http://www.politicalcompass.org/uselection2012 Paul is a racist whose austerity ideas would crash our economy if enacted as quickly as he wanted. Annnddd I'm out.
  12. That figures, of all of the people to fall into my clever trap, it was the brains of the operation. I feel like I'm on a list now. If you guys need me I'm NOT going to the battlefront section to lay low.
  13. This place is far more active than the forum that got me started here, the battlefront network back in 2005. I rarely even go in the Kotor parts of the forum except to read, but I do really enjoy the community section of this network, its a great group of people and there aren't many instances that I've noticed of people causing scenes because they need drama. Except the poster after me. I don't like them and their opinions are rarely of merit. I would also go on to say that their physical appearance is less visually pleasing than the average person.
  14. I was in elementary school when they came out, probably around 5th grade. I enjoyed the last 30-45 minutes of it as well as the chase on Corisant. Everything else could have been cut in my eyes. No 12 year old gives two ****s about galactic politics when they came expecting lasers and lightsabers.
  15. I like to be hopeful but lets be real. Its probably either some stupid expansion for TOR or a terrible clone wars game that they'll push out as fast as possible and market to 10 year olds. I want to be optimistic and I hope I'm wrong, I just seriously doubt any announcement they make now a days.
  16. I have battlefront 1 and 2 guidebooks. I always enjoyed paging through them when bored. But I never got any "strategy" out of it.
  17. I'm doing a research project and would like some informal answers regarding your local police departments. The research is specifically regarding small and medium sized cities in Germany, but just for reference I'd like to hear responses from anyone who cares to share. Please just share as much info on your location as you care to share, if possible at least say the country and size of the city. Below are some basic questions, feel free to answer them or don't: 1. How "visible" is your police department? Do you see them patrolling, running radar, ect or is it more of that unless someone has broken a law then they come out? 2. Are there certain types of violations they are more likely to react to, for example: graffitti, drug offenses, gang related crimes? 3. Does your police force engage in community policing, for example: are they engaged in the community, making connections to citizens and using the public as a resource in fighting crime? 4. How militarized would you consider your police department? Thank you
  18. I have an asus netbook, I can't remember the model name. It was 340 Euros, it plays old games well and can word process and run chrome with 2-3 tabs open. And its battery can in fact last 10 hours. Granted you better be doing nothing but word processing or reading PDFs but unlike most laptop batterys that say they can last however many hours but cant, this one actually does do that. Even with super performance on its about 5 hours of battery
  19. Oh great, it sounds like were going to go from being the baby sitter of annoying cousins to actual children. Maybe rockstar will be merciful and eliminate them early on or something.
  20. As someone who was in elementary school when Episode one came out and therefore his target audience, I can definitely remember finding him just as annoying then as I do now.
  21. Occupy Frankfurt is starting today so I'm heading that way in a few minutes, I just really want to protest. I could be protesting anything and I'd be happy.
