Re: Steam Christmas Sale - M&M X

Simon,

I do not know, but also wondered. The old M&M before day of the destroyer were among my favorite RPGs ever way back in the day. IIRC it was 7 with the simplified mini game based on Magic and a lovely sharp left handed turn at the [more]

Re: Steam Christmas Sale!!!!!

Anyone see a super gem on sale?

In a related question, I would love to hear what folks think about Space Engineers in particular and the idea of paying to play a mid-alpha game in general. Thoughts? Playing a game with scads of bugs and [more]

Re: Wasteland 2 Again

Appreciate the commentary. I am just starting to get toons up to level 10 and it looks like everyone gets an attribute point at lvl 10. I get the impression you set Intelligence at character creation and leave it, but just to check if you splurge on [more]

Re: SA article on Health Care REITs

To quote a coworkers' overly loved phrase, after looking at your article I feel there is a fair bit of meat on that bone.

I am personally far more comfortable with equities that offer a margin of safety when they can be identified. There is [more]

Re: OT: CBI

OK, to help with one question asked earlier S&P's equity side analysis says they believe DBI's business mix looks to be "mainly oil companies with 36% national and 29% international. As of Dec.2013 about 55% of revenues and 30% of backlog [more]

Re: Wasteland 2 Again

Even with the clear warning on character creation from the first post, I personally screwed it up and had to re load. It does not seem unusual to die in the early game if you are not really well coordinated.

I personally like a little more [more]

Wasteland 2 Again

Steam's sale had this at $26 and I have been looking for a good RPG and pulled the trigger. I'll probably hear a valid complaint from the wife about buying myself a present right before the holidays.

Maybe fifteen hours in, the game is [more]

Re: Warren and diversification

Goofy,

I love 90% of your posts but think you are twisting yourself up like a pretzel on this one to support an argument.

Conversion timing?

In a related matter, I have some KMP which I think converts into a combination of 2.1931 KMI shares and $10.77 in cash each.

Does anyone know about when my little TD Ameritrade account should show cash plus KMI stock and not KMP shares? I [more]

Re: Wasteland 2

I thought about pulling the trigger this weekend with a little time after family left early yesterday. The son I share a Steam account with had picked up the Banner Saga so I'm trying that first.

I'm torn between getting this game soon or [more]

Re: the AT&T smokescreen

While your cap gain might be limited, there were some nice dividends in there if holding T for 2+ years. Still, a 5-6% dividend with material risk of capital loss is not compelling.

S&P seems slightly less concerned at first blush [more]

Re: Investing in renewables

Two quick points.

Nuclear may be a better base load option from an environmental basis given recent design safety improvements. Strong and valid concerns relative to the unpleasantness in Japan might make this impractical, not to mention the [more]

Re: Modern Wing Commander-like Games?

For the record I enjoyed this game for about 90 days or so when some RL gamers talked me into trying the game. This game is nicknamed "Spreadsheets in Space" because there is a huge range of economic [more]

Another GOG fall sale

This looks like the final pre-Turkey day set of sales with deals that expire after a given amount of time. I might blow $1.49 to see if their version of Master of Magic is bug free and still fun after all these years. If there is an oldie but a [more]

Re: Free Buffett eBook!

David,

My first, strong impression is that you need to tighten up your writing and consider a few changes depending on the audience you are seeking. The tone difference between Buffet's quotes and the often meandering, informal and imprecise [more]

The lack of a dividend is also concerning to me.
