Oh the horror. Long time Windows user and Linux tinkerer. Took a new job that only supplies MacbookPros to employees.
Any tips on how to make OSX suck a little less and make it more flexible and friendly?
Any completely necessary apps? I'm assuming I'll get Office and all of that. But anything...

Ok here's the thing: I just moved a long distance for a job, which means costs, costs and more costs. So a new TV is a ways away, I have to make due for now.
The situation: So I have an older Samsung Flatscreen which has served me well for 4 years. Still no dead pixels, it's been through 4 moves ...

Interesting comments coming out of an interview:

I've heard zero news on it.
As bad as Heroes ended, I thought there might have been a better story to tell in the same world. They just need to rid themselves of Deus Ex Machina incarnates, Sylar and Peter....

Any early reactions to Bayonetta 2? I'm in the market for a new WiiU game and I want one of these just not sure which one.
Never played the first and looks too weird to me, but all the reviews say the gameplay is one of a kind.
On that note, better or worse than Hyrule Warriors?
| Movie/TV Board|| Making Movies: The Samuel L. Jackson Approach - Freauxzen on 10/21/14 at 2:21 pm|
With some of the recent threads - DC's movie slate, Cabin Fever 2, almost any remake, etc. - I feel like there's a backlash, sometimes, against starting to make any movie. Even with movies that do get made, there's so much of the "This looks stupid" going around, that sometimes it's frustrating.

So CAD started a semi-thread about this, but I figured to make a standard one so people might take more notice.
If you want a well-made tense thriller with just the right amount of slow burning story, go see this movie. I was more than happy with it. A fine performance by Dan Stevens in the lead...

I'm considering a somewhat of a lateral move to SLC in the near future (like next week). How is the Cost of Living? The local amenities?
I've don a little research, which mostly seems to be around people who freak out over the Mormon population. People are people, I doubt that would bother me.

I chime in every once in a while, but I don't often ask for help. Often asking for more and more advice can sometimes make decisions even harder. Stick the the gut sort of thing.
But I got myself into a predicament of slightly epic proportions, and I'm stuck. So let's look at the team: STANDARD S...

I can do this because my own name sounds awkward enough. (It works well, but it's completely confusing in terms of lineage. And it's unique but not cool, anyways, I digress.)
Who's got a coolest name in Hollywood?
Certainly Chazz Palminteri is up there. That's just an awesome name. Slightly be...
