e-surance, IMO -- they quoted us a darn good rate back when my husband had bought a new car and Progressive wanted to jack up our policy to like twice what we'd been paying before for both of our older cars... but when we tried to create our policy on their website, it gave us the run-around and had us call them only to find out they actually couldn't give us the rate they'd quoted and would instead be charging just as much as Progressive wanted. talk about your bait-and-switch deals :|

anyway, State Farm was actually the company that gave us the lowest price (800 for a 6-mo policy compared to the 1200-ish e-surance/Progressive wanted), and we've been with them ever since.

@Bobpie: the HG/SS trading thread was locked because HG/SS apparently falls under the 4th generation of Pokemon still, and so there was already a thread available. not to mention the fact that it was in the wrong section of the forums :3 Prosody had requested people use the Online Gaming thread for their trades and stuff, but no one was listening, so... there you go.

@Chimeny: Please use this thread to advertise or request Pokemon battles or trades. Thank you :3

oh yes, C_B was generous to the point where we were accusing him of holding back just because the developer was present. however, it was unfair of us to imply that, since he's just as entitled to say something isn't as bad as he'd expected as we are to think it's absolute crap. sorry 'bout that, phil :3

@luke: considering the guy was obviously oblivious to us all, i doubt anything we'd'a had to say would'a made a difference anyway. and i did indeed feel great about hanging out with some friends and watching someone play through a crappy game, yes. a great time was had by all involved, except perhaps the Feathered One himself, lol :3

This is the problem I have with so many game developers; the "my way or the high way" rule, especially when it comes to control options. For instance, some Wii racing game developers think the Wii remote should be the only steering option because that's the way the developers prefer. I would have bought ExciteBots if not for this.

you can't please all of the people all of the time, dude. too bad for you, i hear excitebots was pretty good.

In a game like Mario, you don't think about how good the jumping is...you just concentrate on enjoying the game. It's only when the jumping in a game is awful (as it was in Niki) that you notice all the things Mario was doing right.

that's pretty much what we were saying in chat while you were playing Bit.Trip BEAT... jayarr was like 'notice the lack of nonstop cursing?' lol... i believe i also noted that the Gaijin Games dude wasn't there to provide tips as you played, and you seemed to be doing fairly well anyway :3

Kingston is the bomb when it comes to RAM, but their compact-flash cards for cameras are absolute crap. considering how much it sucks to lose perhaps weeks of photos (not to mention at least one major photo shoot that was lost and thus had to be done over) because of a messed up memory card, i wouldn't trust their SD cards either, to be honest. not with anything super-important, anyway, lol.

never had a problem yet with a SanDisk memory card/USB stick, though.
