Entertainment & Media / 2017 MLB Season
« on: February 24, 2017, 01:46:58 PM »
Spring training is finally upon us!

I admittedly have been slightly out of tune with what has happened during the offseason, but I know McCann went to the Astros and we got Carter. Made sense to let McCann go. I'm not a fan of Carter, I don't think he's what we needed, but let's see how it goes.

As usual, if anyone's up for some fantasy baseball that would be awesome :)

HelpDesk / Laptop can't access some websites
« on: December 09, 2016, 04:17:27 PM »
It's surprising how Google doesn't show much on this regard. Anyway, as of Wednesday I started not being able to access Other websites I've tried to access work perfectly. So far I've tried this:

*Running Windows' network diagnostics
*Rebooting the computer
*Using different browsers
*Flushing DNS cache via Command Prompt
*Enabling and disabling wireless card
*Check hosts file
*Disable firewall and antivirus
*Disabling Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface

Has anyone experienced similar problems? I'm running Windows 10.

HelpDesk / "Quick Modify" button not working
« on: September 04, 2016, 12:31:08 PM »
Whenever I try to edit one of my posts with the "quick modify" button (bottom right), I can't save the edit. The "loading" bar shows up and disappears and the post is never saved. Is this happening to anyone else?

Entertainment & Media / Rio 2016 Olympic Games
« on: August 06, 2016, 12:00:22 PM »
Discuss the 2016 Olympic Games.

I preferred London's opening ceremony but this one was not bad, just ridiculously long as they always are.

I'm looking specifically for models of the floats and the setting (background + street). I've searched in a ton of websites (most notably Spriters/Models/Textures Resource) but I just can't find them. Do you guys know where I may be able to find them?
