    Citadels - How is 150 mm armor penetrated?

    To all NA WoWs community...stay safe in this dire time.

    I'd have few worries here were it not for my Dad, who is nearing 90. He is going stir crazy sitting at home but realizes that he has to. I'm going to get the groceries and mail nowadays and taking as many precautions as I can in the process. The first instance of the virus hit the next county over, brought in by an idiot who traveled to an area he knew good and well he shouldn't have. They have him isolated but who knows who he was in contact with while he was contagious. I just read in the news that most of a group of University of Texas students who flouted stay at home orders and headed down to Mexico to party now have the virus. It's bad enough when your stupidity kills yourself but it's criminal when it kills others.

    Graphic cards

    Be very wary of used/cheap video cards sold on eBay and other such places. If the cards aren't outright dead or have mechanical problems such as broken fan blades then you still may not be getting what you paid for. Unscrupulous sellers will replace labels and then hack firmware on obsolete video cards to make the computer report false information about them. Of course, comparative benchmarks will reveal the scam but the scammers know that most buyers won't go to this much trouble.

    Graphic cards

    I just got a GTX 570 because it had the best performance to price ratio of cards in the $150 price range. Even though my old CPU bottlenecks it a bit, it still can run the game on the highst settings. I've run Sapphire's AMD-based cards for several years now and find them to be of excellent quality.

    Player Base Intelligence

    Do you remember when you first played Killer Whale? I found all the operations difficult the first time I played them. Then, I learned them and eventually five-starred them all. If you get a team of players new to an operation they will look bad, just as all of us did when we first started playing it.

    A call for civility...

    The retirement age was set at 65 originally because the government figured that it wouldn't have to pay a lot of benefits out because hardly anyone lived longer than that. Neither of my grandpas ever claimed retirement benefits -- both died when they were the age I am now! Back in 1918, when the big flu pandemic hit the life expectancy for Americans was about 55 years, now it's over 80 years. According to Social Security, my retirement age is close to 70. This state used to give free hunting and fishing licenses to anyone reaching 65, now it's 75. People are living longer nowadays. The reason probably stems down to vaccination and antibiotics mainly and general health care knowledge after that.

    I went to the store yesterday morning and saw a sign that said "Senior citizens only from 8-9 AM." I thought, "Well I'm going to have to wait in the parking lot for an hour before I go in." Then, I saw the age they considered a "senior citizen" -- 60. Man, when did I become a senior citizen?
  12. I'd say that WOWS is at least among the top ten PC games that I've played. Maybe the top five.

    I think that the goal of PSP was to have a clan of active and former public service professionals but I don't think that more than two or three of us actually fit that bill anymore. I still have the knowledge but no longer the physical stamina to work accident scenes. There's no way I could lift a patient off the ground into a fireman's carry today. Heck, I can barely get myself up off my knees anymore.
