So I checked out reviews, and apparently Max Payne 3 is a good game. Has anyone played it yet? It just looks like the original atmosphere is totally gone.

Anyone trying to buy into the FB IPO? E-Trade was offering its customers a conditional piece of the pie, so I put in a bid, but not sure if they'll actually give the shares to me.

I recommend that if anyone is looking to party, the Menlo Park/Palo Alto scene is going to be epic tomorrow night with about 500 people slated to become millionaires once FB goes public.

I know a girl from high school who was one of FB's 1st 100 employees, so shes set for life now, ha!

They can't sell their stock for six months right (that's usually how it works)? Price will have tanked by then.

Something like that. There is a lockup period, but that won't stop people from partying. A lot of the early employees are highly paid as it is, so I fully expect ragers at many of the bars/pubs near their HQ

They do exist. My gf is one, which is cool seeing as instead of breaking bank on jewelery and clothes she always wants games which later I end up playing too.

Meh, I wouldn't want a gamer girlfriend. Don't want a significant other that is weirder than me.

I've had two, both girls were totally nuts.

My wife doesn't play games, and we have an incredibly happy marriage

We've been together 7 and a half years now and very happy, she's not weird at all. Gamer girls aren't all nuts, in fact the craziest girls I ever dated were all the most outwardly normal girly ones.

Don't date gamer girls especially if you want one, they will never live up to your expectations.

On another note Max Payne without the Noir feel? No sank you.

Yeah it seems nice as a concept but noooooooooooooope. The reality is far worse.

That's what I'm saying. It might be a fun game but it's not a Max Payne game.

So I tried downloading a forum reader app for my Windows phone, but it can't see HF because in their database, it's listed as ********.com

Edit: Wow, that's censored? The R is before the O, not after the A...

It's censored because the misspelling actually is the (I believe former) name of a site created by several users who were banned from HF. The URL is obviously to get people to end up there if they misspell HF in when they type it in. Those people would get users of their site who aren't banned here to show up from time to time and try to spam the address to recruit posters to their site (in a way that is against the TOS here). That last bit is why it ended up in the filter

It's a terrible site with a tone/content/maturity exactly in line with what you would expect out of people who were banned from here. And when I checked the address 5 minutes ago to see if it was still active, I also got a warning from my anti-virus about it. So there's that too.

Wow. The app gave me an invalid URL error, so I didn't think it actually existed.

Is it run by Scarface?

It's older than that. And the sharks section was basically dead the last time I saw it. Like 1 post every 2-3 months level of dead.

I feel old now. One of my friends is a middle school teacher and it's still weird to me that some of his students this year were born after 2000.

Kinda hard to believe it's been 22 years without him.

Neat to see Big Bird, Bernie and Burt on the Muppet Show "stage"

I'll probably get it by Tuesday.

I mean, we all knew that they had to come up with something new to keep the series going, but it's still painful to admit it.

Ok so one thing I like about Max Payne 3. No regenerating health and you can't just kick doors down and blast everyone to oblivion and move on.

Just got back from the 2nd years' Graduation ceremony for my program. Leonard Nimoy gave the commencement address, great speech! Went a little like this.
