I've noticed this on a couple of occasions as well, but it's not consistent (also on Chrome), so it's hard to pinpoint any specific thing.

In my case, I'd hit "Show unread posts since last visit" and would see everything as normal, but occasionally when jumping pages in the list, the "New" icon would disappear... which then defeats the purpose in a way, since then you can't use that icon to jump to the first unread post. :-\

Also, some update I installed (can't figure out what) made my old Photoshop not work. It just crashes my computer if I try to run it. i use GIMP now.

Also, after that event, I've been looking up what these "IMPORTANT UPDATES" are for. One was for compatibility with Azerbaijani currency, or some such thing. Yeah, that sounds important. (rolls eyes).

And that update was apparently buggy and caused problems on some programs. Thanks MS.

It could be that update. We ran into some issues with some customers where the updated font included in that update caused issues with Acrobat. Being that they are both Adobe products... could potentially be related to the same issue of the updated font.

Just was reminded of Cracker - Low. Bought the album based on that song and was greatly disappointed. At least from what I've heard, Low is pretty much their only good song.

From the newer fountains with the flavors: Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper. :beer:

Not sure if they even sell that bottled / canned? I've never seen it around here anyway... just the cherry.

It is kind of odd when you consider that Dr. Pepper is supposed to be a spiced cherry drink in the first place (that there is a "Cherry" version... but, whatever).

From my understanding of this feature from early days of the site: You won't see the thread bump since you are the one editing it, but others will.

I think my latest purchases were:

Adventures of Mana [Android] - Much more faithful remake of Final Fantasy Adventure than Sword of Mana ever was. I liked Sword of Mana well enough, I guess, but they definitely took a lot of liberties with the original material.

No Man's Sky [PS4] - Pre-ordered this a little while back. Figures that a delay would bring out the lecherous underbelly of the internet with death threats and what not. People are $@%$#^ stupid.

While I like most of their material, Awake is still probably my favorite album by them. :beer:

There's two songs that come to mind, but the two band's names escape me at the moment:

1: Cult of Personality

2: Dontcha Want Me baby?

1. Living Colour: can't say I'm familiar with any of their other material.

2. The Human League: also Human was very popular.

Haven't posted here in a while, since I just mainly stick to tracking my stuff on backloggery these days, but there was one thing I wanted to note.

I recently played through Adventures of Mana on my Shield TV. For anyone who disliked the liberties taken with Sword of Mana for the GBA, this is a much more faithful remake of Final Fantasy Adventure for the GB.

If we are doing such things then how many here know Faith No More for anything other than Epic? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZG_k5CSYKhg

A Small Victory
Midlife Crisis

Both of these come to mind, without a reference to look at. :)

In regards to the Toadies, I had always heard that the name Possum Kingdom was in reference to a state park in the band's home state of Texas. Wikipedia seems to back this up (Possum Kingdom State Park, which includes Possum Kingdom Lake).

Quote from: Wikipedia
The song's origins lie in folklore from the band's native state of Texas. Possum Kingdom Lake is a lake in North Texas near Fort Worth. In the documentary "Dark Secrets: The Stories of Rubberneck", Lewis further elaborates that he intended "Possum Kingdom" to be a continuation of the story told in the song "I Burn". While he envisioned "I Burn" to be a story about cult members immolating themselves in order to ascend to a higher plane, "Possum Kingdom" was about one of the immolated people becoming "just smoke, and ...he goes to Possum Kingdom [Lake] and tries to find somebody to join him."

While this was their only major hit (that I am aware of), they've had a release as recent as 2015, so they are still around.

I remember playing Beyond the Beyond way back in the day. Music was alright, had a nice SNES asthetic, but the gameplay was soooooo sloooooow. Isn't it also basically the precursor to the Golden Sun games?

It looks and plays fairly similar, at least.

I don't do much board gaming these days.

I did use to love Hero Quest (it has a board, so I'm counting it :P). Also, I played a lot of Dungeon, Shadowlord, and Scotland Yard with a few friends when I was younger.

As for Monopoly... meh. The card game, however, is pretty fun (Monopoly Deal).

If CCGs count, then Magic: The Gathering.

If not, probably either Exploding Kittens or Cards Against Humanity.

In the 2nd camp, I actually liked Deadly Towers, even though most people seem to despise it.

If they add proper gamepad support, I *might* consider it for the Shield TV.

No way I'm playing through it on my phone though.

My guess is Wild Fang/Tecmo Knight.

This is what the description made me think of, as well.

It may be "a little negative" but, I will admit there have been times I wished I could ignore threads and/or users in whole...

As others have noted, probably either an FF2 or FF5 partial translation in the mid-90s.

Damn you must be an old timer like me then.

Getting up there...  :-\

Is gaming doing a little better in WV than it was in the old days?

Not sure what you mean..? I'm probably not the best person to gauge anything by for the general area, as 90% of the stuff I play is single-player... and I'm a bit of a hermit these days.  ;)
