Dark Souls a bit of a review

My quick review on Dark Souls: Prepare to Die is a 6.5 out of 10. I love the atmosphere of the game. I like the story or lack thereof. I don’t mind the countless deaths as long I learn something from it and don’t keep making the same mistakes. The [more]

Re: Steam Christmas Sale!!!!!

I'm surprised that Telltales "Game of Thrones" is 25% off. It was just released two weeks ago. Surprisingly there is not many reviews on it. Looking at Steam reviews, the main con was that the game is pretty linear and that the choices [more]

Re: nitrogen fertilizer

I've been so fixated on the energy markets, that I have totally missed the stealth rally in corn over the past few months. What is really impressive is that is doing it in the face of the strong dollar and weak overall commodity prices. If we can get [more]

Re: Ethyl's slide into the oily vortex of doom

I'll just post this for anyone who is sniffing around the oil collapse wreckage. I like listening to conference calls just to see if I can hear the fear in their voices. Either these guys are biggest group of liars or they are not nearly as worried [more]

I am healthy, but the bulbs are probably healthier. If you take the company claim at face value that they rated for 50,000 hours of use; that is 3 hours every day for 46 years. I [more]

Re: Ho Ho HoHum ideas

The flip side is that in the consumer sector, the price differential is still a real problem. If one is replacing traffic lights or something, it is very easy to make the case for cost savings with a more expensive bulb that lasts longer, but in [more]

Re: Ho Ho HoHum ideas

I did own Cree for a while a few years back. What I don't understand is why there is so much short interest on the stock now. With their pristine balance sheet it doesn't make a lot of sense. Here is what I understand about the LEDs:

Re: Steam Christmas Sale!!!!!

One general note on the sale is that when there are featured items of the day on sale, there probably is significant unadvertised sale on previous versions.

Example 1: Borderlands:The Pre Sequel was featured yesterday, but if you look at [more]

Re: [PC] Fallout 3: GotY

There are a couple of subtle things that I liked about FO3 over NV although I liked NV better overall, which I know we have differing points of view on.

The first is the subway or underground areas, which a fair amount of people abhorred, I [more]

Re: Ethyl's slide into the oily vortex of doom

Ethyl, do you think oil prices have bottomed? And if not when?

Lots of oil out there is in tanks with owners hoping to take inventory profits selling oil they own at higher prices.

Are oil prices low enough to cause speculators

Simon you said that before about M&B. That's a five minute major for repeating yourself. Off to the sin bin.

Re: Ethyl's slide into the oily vortex of doom

Can you detail how you calculated the cost per boe? I have struggled with that and inputs across companies are variable making it hard to standardize a way to get the data.Being the lowest cost producer is going to be critical to survival over the [more]

Ethyl's slide into the oily vortex of doom

I’ll start off with saying that as of about two months ago I knew exactly 0.00000001 about the oil industry and in the subsequent time that knowledge as increased a 100 fold. I think that should make me a bona fide expert. I started off the oil slide [more]

Re: Steam Christmas Sale!!!!!

I came close to getting Space Engineers also. It does look like a descent early access game that is playable. I think it got the totalbiscuit seal of approval if that means anything.

As far as early access, here are my thoughts. Don't buy it [more]

AREX Outperform

Way oversold. This company gets lumped in with the rest of the small cap shale plays and it is going to be more than a survivor.

I doubt it. If the US sugar industry can get an injunction against Mexican(our NAFTA partner) sugar, I don't think they should have much of a problem keeping cuban sugar out. At least here in the [more]

Re: nitrogen fertilizer

Here is my quick answer. Since most nitrogen fertilizer is being imported, the price of nitrogen is going to be heavily influenced by the strength or weakness in the dollar. The strength of the dollar is going to be a headwind to the domestic [more]

Appears that there is some major movement today in improving US/Cuba relations this morning at long last. Perhaps Cuba got a call from their Russian friends that more help is unlikely in view of the dire Russian situation.

Re: Chronic Fatigue in Energy Easing for the Day

The close dates are really less important than the one that are out a year or two. A driller should be reasonably hedged for the 2015 so that the near term futures have less effect on their bottom line than further out months.
