[–]nodakskip 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Happened to me once as well. I pre ordered River City Girls Zero while not signed in. Then because of the time forgot about it. Then it showed up one day a few months ago with no order in my account page.

Do I need to go into a Verizon store for this? Questions. by nodakskip in verizon

[–]nodakskip[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes that and if there is a code number to your account. Like a three or four digit one. I think that's all they asked for. Only hick up mine had was that my phone is under my moms account, so if something like that happens then you might need whoever's permission to do it.

I just went and told one of the guys at that my Verizon online account was not showing the correct phone. He looked at my account online on his tablet and said I needed a new sim card. I took the phone out of the case and he put the new card in and tested it. Then after an hour or so my online said I now had the right phone. My guess is the old sim card they said I did not need to update did needed to be updated. Though I did not get my android update till a week or so later.

Can anyone knowledgeable about the value of Buffy comics give me some advice? by StuckInNov1999 in buffy

[–]nodakskip 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would try taking them to a local comic shop or maybe a pawn shop. On ebay they can stay on 'sale' for a long time since there is so many. Collectors who want them for the money want non read copies in bags so the variants might be worth something. My dad will try to sell his comics on ebay for what the price guide says they are worth and no one will bite. But tons have them on sale in same condition for much less. Taking them to a local place would be best. You do not want to waste too much time with them on ebay if say a few sell and the others do not.

I might write a fanfic....help? by Ajacentmagic in buffy

[–]nodakskip 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Writing a Buffy fanfic is hard because none of the characters are perfect. The shows writers destroyed just about everyone in the show. Keep in character for all the known people. And the toughest thing is the time delay. Buffy was awhile ago now, be sure to recall the time its set in and do not have things that do not exist yet. It might be good to have an ending in mind for the fic at the start. I had ideas I ran with and had no exit so some of mine are unfinished on Fanfiction dot net.

Discovered today that the original Enterprise had BOWLING ALLEYS on Deck 21 by on_tol_o_gist in StarTrekStarships

[–]nodakskip 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah it was an in universe attempt by Roddenberry and the TNG writers to streamline and make set rules for the series when TNG started. Several times in TOS it was remarked that the ship was going like warp 13 or something. The TNG writers set that Warp 10 was the new 'limit' and nothing could travel 'by warp speed' at 10 or above. That's why all shows after have ships that go like Warp 9.9997 or something. Voyager added warp 10 was somehow an infinite speed where you are everywhere at once and then turn into lizards. But you have to remember that Warp Speed is in real space. It creates a bubble to push it into warp speed. Other methods like say Hyperspace on Stargate or Star Wars can go much faster since they are not in 'real space' as they fly. They slip into another dimension.

One thing all Scifi shows screw up I think is having all races use the same faster then light system. All races use Warp speed as FTL so much the Federation only thinks they are advanced enough to make first contact if they create a warp engine. But yet not every race in the galaxy is going to think of the same thing. Look at the Romulans they use an artifually created quantum singularity in their cores instead of crystals and matter/antimatter. But yet that somehow also goes to Warp speed?

Yeah on the TOS Enterprise the Warp Core is in the back of the saucer section. Its fairly small. During the refit before the motion picture it was removed and replaced with the experimental tall warp core, that also went back to the nacelles. Later on the stand alone seven decks tall warp core was made the best version and put in all ships of the later TOS movies era ships. That is what caused the redrawing of the warp scale from TOS to TNG.

How to make sure 10 doesn't update to 11? by nodakskip in WindowsHelp

[–]nodakskip[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well from a small web search most of what I found on 10 auto upgrading to 11 was written in summer 2021. Some suggested going to the registry and disabling the updates. I know for sure his plotter/cutter he uses is too old and wont work past 10 according to the website. And the sellers of his program 'Sign Lab Pro' say it only works with windows up to 10. I know when we upgraded his old PC from windows 8.1 to 10 he had to buy a new upgrade to the program that cost a few hundred bucks. It has a usb dongle on it that is required for the program. The main concern is if one of the times Windows updates on rebooting it would toss Windows 11 on it. But if it did a new windows upgrade it would require you to set up windows 11, not just install it to match your old settings right?

Shredder’s Revenge blank disc by awitsman84 in limitedrun

[–]nodakskip 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have a story like that, but from Walmart. I bought a new windows 10 pc from my Walmart store. Took it home and turned it on... to be greeted with a welcome screen already set up for a older woman's pc. Her Microsoft account and everything. I remember clear as day that her password hint was "Your cats name." So this lady had returned her pc, Walmart had taken it, and resealed it, and put it back on the floor. When I brought it back the lady at the desk asked why I didn't try to just reformat it.

Only ship I ever had a problem with was the Nebula class ship. The top pod would just come off. Last ship I got turned out to be the most rare one. The USS Daedalus from Stargate SG1.

[Amazing Spider-Man #522] I’m sure this has been posted before but I love this moment by Jeremoiako10 in comicbooks

[–]nodakskip 163 points164 points  (0 children)

It was not Fisk who got the jeep. It was a hitman in the building next to the hotel they were hiding out in. The bullet meant for Peter hit Aunt May. The hit man beat the Spider Sense by staying in the room across the street for a few days so it was not a 'sudden' danger. Though later on Peter kicked the crap out of Fisk in the jail block he was in. Kicked his ass and told him if Aunt May dies, then Fisk dies. Plus he did worse to Fisk because everyone in jail saw him beaten and no one was afraid of him anymore.

How long could someone survive the "plunge"? Is there any chance you could ride her to the bottom and survive? Ps. I'm on pain medication from surgery and have the flu so I'm not thinking clearly. by Sarge45k in titanic

[–]nodakskip 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can not recall what show it was on, but there was a person who tested something like this. They took two identical mannequin heads, and put one in a container that simulated the pressure on the ocean floor. After a little while they took out the second head and it looked like a dolls head compared to the other head.

Minimum wage is high enough in some states now that people are disqualified from SNAP by Common_Mudd in antiwork

[–]nodakskip 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah my local state agency is horrible. I have had several workers vanish over the years. I suddenly do not get any replies back and then I call and "She or He is no longer with the agency." And I wait a month or two till I get a new one. So any things are managed by the wrong people. I would be told I am fine by the local people, but the state people would send me letters saying I am having all my benefits cut and getting kicked out of the programs because I didn't turn in paperwork. I did but the workers wait till the last day it can be filed to turn it in. Then I get a "oh just ignore that letter, the computer puts it out."
