@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

Looks like the old Apple thread went poof in Kal's mad plan to make things work, so here's a new one.

So, my iPad (1) and my iPod Touch 4th Gen are not updated to iOS5.

My main computer is a G5 running Leopard. (I have a Mac book pro @ snow leopard and a dodgy Dell Hackentosh also at Snow Leopard).

I'm considering upgrading my iDevices to iOS 5. What, if anything, will I gain from this, given the limitations of my main computer?

Yeah, I was going to post that myself.

This thread should be about the Beatles.

I would hold off till they bring out iOS 5.1 which is said to introduce multi touch gestures to the iPad 1 and that way you will avoid some of the bugs in 5

huh..had you asked me, I'd have sworn the first update had already happened (or was that 5.0.1)?
Any rumored time of release on that?

On another topic, man I let updates get away from my...on my iPad, I have 135 updates waiting....and for so many apps I don't use.

Beta 2 of 5.0.1 was just seeded to developers recently, so it shouldn't be long now. I'd go ahead and upgrade. There's a ton of new features in iOS 5 that may make your life easier depending on what you do. And once you get this update out of the way, all the future updates will be over the air. You won't be dependent on plugging it into a computer just to upgrade.

Oh you and me both. They need to make them like "Windows Updates". Automatic, invisible, in the background etc.

It's the same on the desktop. I rarely reboot the laptop, so that's also got a load of updates waiting to be installed

It still baffles me that Apple doesn't use their own push notification framework to show a badge or an alert whenever you have apps to update.

^ it does (unless I'm mis understanding what you're saying).

I used to just hit update all each day..but then a comic app went evil with an update, and I wanted to keep the version I had, so I had to do updates 1 by 1...and then it all went downhill from there.

And here I am wishing Windows Update were more like the one iOS has ? one centralized system that handles all my app updates instead of having to rely on a dozen different self-updaters and even more programs that don't bother with one at all.

There's just no reason for it. It's a technology that served its purpose, and still has a purpose, but that purpose isn't the web anymore.

Cool iOS 5 feature I just discovered: hold down the back arrow in Safari rather than clicking it and you'll pull up a desktop style option of going back to a specific page (rather than having to click each page back one at a time). Appears to be iPad only right now (5.0.1)


"Someone once told me that Time is a predator that stalked us all our lives, but I'd rather believe that Time is a companion who goes with us on the journey, and reminds us to cherish every moment -- because they'll never come again."
