Bordering on tinfoil hat wearing, I think it's deliberately planned, controlled and related to the releases of DLC and other news. I seem to recall some interviews or comments made by Bungie...

Ah, sorry I wasn't there. Yeah, I tend to leave the console on sometimes.

Lately I've been using two other family accounts to level characters up to 30 pending the release of TTK. I'll say...

Nice job. My thought is find a way to make sure that the closet aspect of that space doesn't end up causing problems for your gear. Like storing the vacuum in there and banging up against the gear....

It's not bizarre, it's just more of Bungie eff'ing with the players rather than having content.

Everyone burned through Eris damned fast. This smacks of them trying to keep people from doing...

I don't really like the games where you're shooting other people. Yeah, it's all pixels, but I'm generally more interested in shooting creepy enemies from space rather than humans, be they zombies,...

Ah yes, I can recall a few times on RAGBRAI dealing with the sweltering summer weather in Iowa. Like putting you bike on a trainer in front of an open kitchen oven. Saggy Thursday's ride into...

Rock-fetch, now that's funny!

You can short-cut to the Grotto two ways. One is your way, the other is motor over there through the Forgotten Shore. I've found it quickest to use a Siege of the...

Sometimes it's an ogre, lately I've seen it as a hive knight major (yellow bar). Not seen it as an ogre for quite a while. It's one of the rare places where the enemy is RNG.

Note, there's...

How-to anywhere for a spouse-friendly portable outdoor setup?

I'd like to figure out a way to set up some kind of kit that my wife and/or...

The better question is where do you want to direct the sound. Where will people be positioned for listening? What kind of sound?

I got a kinect and adapter for a PC, in order to test out the Windows 10 Cortana voice recognition features (which are only so-so). It's a pretty straight-forward gizmo, luckily I found one through...

The IR blaster is in the Kinect. So if you put the Kinect in a place where it doesn't have line-of-sight to the devices then it's not going to be able to control them. For that you'd need to plug...

Yes, for most devices it's safe to remove the ferrite bead. If signaling noise became a problem you could always just reinstall it with some tape (or ones like it). But it's unlikely to be much of...

Then use the MS adapter. Bit of overkill as you don't need length, but the adapter will power the Kinect and then you'd just run USB3 back through the conduit. There'd have to be room at the TV to...

Meh, it's not quick or easy unless you keep a PC with keyboard nearby. From a tablet or phone (via browser) it's a bit tedious. It's do-able, of course, but seems more work than ought to be...
