Does anyone have any experience with having your passport renewed? We're going to Costa Rica next week and my friend's passport expired. She renewed it about two months ago and they said 4-6 weeks. Still isn't here.

If she went to Customs on the airport without a passport is she completely screwed?

No idea. I would start making some calls to find out if I were her. Have fun and be safe!

I would imagine the airline wouldn't let her board if she can't legally enter the country she is traveling to.

saw Godzilla last night and I must say I came away impressed but still wanting more.

the movie was 2 hours long, but simply not enough damn Godzilla!!

a few head scratching moments in there, but overall an impressive monster movie that actually had solid acting and a ton of suspense. I prefer Pacific Rim for the over the top action, but this movie has done us Godzilla marks proud IMO.

kids loved it, went ape **** during all the fighting...that is all that matters to me

Tell your friend to contact their U.S. representative. Might not be like this anymore, but I was interning in a congressional office the summer they expanded passport requirements to a bunch of Caribbean countries for the first time, so there was a huge influx of passport applications/renewals and the state department was exceedingly ill-prepared for the workload. At least back then, our offices had connections with them to try to help expedite the process for constituents.

Yes, usually when they say 4-6 weeks its closer to 4 than 6. I wonder if they are backed up because of summer and a lot of people do their European vacations? I would contact your representative as someone else said.

Figured this would be the proper thread to put this in, but in NHL 14, this is my lineup:

Bickell - Toews - Kane
Saad - Kesler - Shaw
Carcillo - MacKinnon - Morin
Bollig - TT - Hayes

Thoughts?

Thanks for the advice guys. I guess it's going to process for 2 days (starting yesterday) and then it'll be expedited (overnight) and hopefully here by the time we leave. Very stressful.

I traded Sharp, Hossa, and a 2014 first rounder for MacKinnon (don't know how that worked, it was like my 10th proposal).. And then like Pirri, McNeil, and anothwr draft pick for Kesler. They didn't even want TT!

I paid extra to have mine expedited. I had it in less than two weeks on a renewal. Which is the only way you can expedite.....not on a beginning one. It is an option and costs something like another $150 or something like that on top of the renewal fee.

The option is on the gov page.

Yeah she's just going to get it expedited. So stupid. She handled it with (supposedly) enough time but what are you going to do. It's the government...

On a less serious note, i think I've finally cracked the NHL 14 sliders if anyone is interested. I usually either win 70 + games a season, win the cup in 18 games, and have 5 guys on my roster with 100+ points or I win half my games with scores of 4-3 and outshoot them 30-8. I've been looking for 3 years now to find the best blend of realism to match my skill level and I think I've got it!

General

Game Speed: 3
Attribute Effects: 5
Fatigue Effect: 4
Fatigue Recovery: 1
Puck Control:2
Player Acceleration:
Broken Stick Frequency:2

AI

AI Learning: MAX
CPU Difficulty Adjustment: MAX
CPU Strategy Adjustment: MAX
CPU Faceoff Difficulty: 4
Fight Difficulty: 4
CPU Penalties: 3
CPU Teammate Penalties: 2

Passing

Pass Assist: 4
Manual Passing: On
Pass Speed: 3
Saucer Pass Speed: 3
Pass Accuracy: 3
Pass Reception Ease: 2
Pass Interceptions: 3

Shooting

Wrist Shot Power/Accuracy: 3
Slap Shot Accuracy: 3
Slap Shot Power: 4
One Timer Accuracy: 2

Checking

Hitting Assistance: 1
Aggression (Human): 3
(CPU): 5
Hitting Power (Human): 0
Hitting Power (CPU): MAX
Stick Lift Effectiveness: 3
Poke Effectiveness: 1

Goalies

Goalie Passing: 0
Goalie Cover Puck Frequency: MAX
Goalie Screen Effect: 3
Goalie Reaction Speed: 5

Difficulty: All-Star
Period Length: 8 Minutes

I have hitting and aggression ramped up pretty high so it keeps from getting to fancy with dekes. My goalie usually sees anywhere from 25-40 shots a game. Since i maxed out goalie cover puck frequency, it results in a much more realistic amount of faceoffs as well.

Everything about my games is so much more realistic now and I love it. Difficult passes can be made but they can also be fumbled, i can deke through guys occasionally but not constantly and you have to be in good scoring positions to score goals.

This isn't an NHL 14 thread but I've seen a few of us talk about it sparingly on here. These sliders helped me a lot so maybe they'll help some of you guys.

I use similar sliders, Hot Fuss. But my passing is faster and no pass assist. Also turn up pass interceptions, because it's annoying being in perfect position and just standing there like a totem pole.

The selling home and buying home process simultaneously sure is stressful. So many moving parts and fees and payments out the ass. Doesn't help with the entire process is being done within a little over a month including closing.

All good problems to have, though. Got a great offer on our house and won't have to knock off much at all after inspection, and the house we're buying is awesome and everything is going as smoothly as it can be. It's no southern Florida but it'll do.

Does NHL 2014 still have franchise/dynasty modes?

I remember a few years ago people saying I think Madden or something else wasn't gonna have mode like that

Never followed up on it but to me that would make game pointless. I loved franchise modes in games
