  1. If you love MOO1/2, is Stallaris more in line with that? Considering picking it up since next Civ is 6 months away.
  2. Just built a new rig (old one was pretty old), and decided to go high end. Been playing SWTOR for a good 6 months, but its getting a littel boring. I only play 5-6 hours a week... any recommendations on new games? (I prefer RPGs usually) Thinking about GTA or going back at playing Fallout 3/4... just wondering if it is worth it.
  3. SpaceX -- Rockets, Spacecraft, and Mars

    For sure. Another option would be to potentially move the ISS to Mars when it becomes obsolete. Not sure what sort of lift/power would be required to get it over there, but seems to me repurposing/remodeling in space may be a better option that launching a shit ton of new stuff.
  4. I think its a 4 hour train ride between St Petersburg and Moscow on the Saspan high speed train, with 10 trains leaving per day. I think its about same time to get from St Petersburg to Helsinki via train as well.
  5. Starting to do some pre-planning for next year. Thinking about doing Moscow for 3 days, St Petersburg for 3 days, then Helsinki for 4 days, taking the train between each. I may add a day later (depends on vacation for my wife), but could chop one of the cities, or switch to other cities in Europe. Never been to any of those 3 cities (but am in London all the time, and going to Paris in 2 months), so any feedback would be great.
  6. SpaceX -- Rockets, Spacecraft, and Mars

    I'd hope they use the extra power/space to put in a return option to do some sort of sample return.
  7. Survivor: Kaôh Regōng Trail

    I feel like Aubrey is getting an edit similar to Sophie. She's a quiet woman, so tends to fall into the background really easily, but they keep putting her into all the episodes, and has a relatively favorable edit. Jason, Cydney and Tai (and Scot) tend to be oversized characters, so they keep dominating airtime. Aubrey's the only other person getting screen time. Michelle and Joe have barely shown upfor the past few episodes. Tai's play is really confusing. On one hand he could be paranoid, but he seemed to have a really solid alliance. He has the advantage, and was guaranteed the final 3. Who else would he want to sit at the end with? It seemed like a no brainer for Scot and Jason to keep being the hated pair and him landing the votes... with a crafty use of the idol and advantage, with some of his challenge victories, he has a solid case to win.
  8. Chareerchat II: Production of Means

    We do excel tests with all our managers and analysts. A surprising number of "experts" suck at basic modeling and fail it. Being in Finance, generally I trust people that have been promoted at another fortune 500 company. Disney usually doesn't promote morons from Analyst to Manager, same for most other Fortune 500 companies. Folks from small companies are a lot tougher to judge, since generally I won't know someone who worked there (so no informal referral), and we have no idea if they were VP of running a TPS reportor a legitimate candidate. For folks at manager or above, we usually do 2 rounds of 3+ hour interviews. I put my last Director hire through a brutal 8 hours of interviews between the 2 rounds. I usually tell my candidates that if our hiring process was a joke, you can expect your coworkers are a joke too... so be glad we are tough (or find somewhere else to work).
  9. SpaceX -- Rockets, Spacecraft, and Mars

    Pretty badass. With a low cost sample return mission, it also opens up the possibility of doing mining missions to asteroids.
  10. Sounds like only titancat is available? Happy to still meet up on Sunday, but Mon/Tue got booked up for me unfortunately. Maybe could do something late Tuesday (like 10 PM) if someone is nearby and bored. Will send Titan my phone number to call/text me to work out specifics in case my internet is spotty. For smoe reason I can't write replies on my phone, which is infuriating...
  11. As all of the BWB knows, I don't drink. JK. I pretty much drink anything. I'm fine for doing food and/or drinks depending on how much time people have. Ipretty much eat and drink anything (besides haggas). I'm not particularly high maintenance, so a pub is fine and am not on any real budget either. Afternoon/Evening is probably best for me, and I'm staying at the Hilton in Covent Garden, but can meet up anywhere really.
  12. Lets lock down a time/place. You guys know the town better than me, so let me know what works best...
  13. Tuesday probably doesn't work for me now (have a VC at work late that night). I'm indifferent on Sunday or Monday! Either works, but usually Sunday means we can start in the afternoon. Chances are that I'll stay near Covent Gardens (or can stay by Bloomsbury Sq). Sounds like we got titancat and mountaingoat at least, and can shoot for Sunday. I'll let you guys pick where and a more specific time, since I've got no idea whats convenient and where is good.
  14. Hi all, I'm going to be in London on Sunday March 20th. Let me know if you can to meet up for a pint (and where is a good spot for you). I could do something in the evening of Monday/Tuesday the 21st/22nd instead since I'm around central London (for work) those 2 days. I fly in that Sunday morning and promise to shower!
  15. BWB London Meet up - Thurs 3 Dec

    Sunday March the 20th unfortunately. Got 6 weeks, so hopefully people will pop through the thread!
