I really like Tapet - a wallpaper generator for Android. They recently added a new pattern called Skyline which I don't particularly like (it's not abstract enough for me, maybe?). To disable Skyline, you need a 2.99 IAP to use the manager, or go through the like/dislike buttons which could take a while to teach Tapet to never show me these again.

2.99 isn't a huge price. I could just take it and go, but I'm not. Why is this such a big deal?

Going vacation later today. I wanted to setup a webcam viewer for the dog at her favorite window perch. Using a Windows app called Yawcam and a custom php script, I can watch Roxy anytime!

I remember Teq before the update. And then after, I thought it was "too hard" and stayed away until I was gathering platinum in Sparkfly and map chat invited us over. I was out into a defense group that time, and it was spontaneously fantastic. Now, of course, we DPS Teq down in seconds during a burn, and the initial is ~4 minutes maybe.

I've never successfully completed TT before, but I tried that too when it came out.

Shatterer is a great boss and it's a shame it won't be updated. The way GW2, everything is so tied to map regions, it would be hard to split Shatterer up like TT is, but open world offers that opportunity, and I think it could be fun to continue keeping some world bosses in the open world. Besides that though, GW2 needs selectable instances/districts.

Thanks for the video!

My mom wanted to show my grandmother the pictures and videos of a drum concert she went to. Photos doesn't have native Chromecast button yet but we can still cast the entire screen.

The Zenfone 2 handles the stream perfectly.

I've held out on buying the expansion for quite sometime. I am tempted though. We'll have four of nine specializations to try out over the weekend.

 
We are happy to announce the first beta weekend event, starting august 7! If you have pre-purchased Heart of Thorns you'll be able to play the profession specializations announced so far, the revenant with Shiro as legend and much more. Head to http://ow.ly/QjH93 to learn more and pre-purchase ‪#‎GW2HoT http://ow.ly/QjH81 if you want to get in and enjoy the beta  ~DO

It does look like supporting roles will play larger roles in the game going forward. I wonder if there will be substantially developed methods for a boon sharing Tempest to participate to the same degree as a full DPS character in difficult content, aside from just keeping a random npc alive or just barely keeping the party from wiping.

The overloads don't seem game changing enough for me. If it had kicked you to a previous attunement, and had a broader but potentially riskier pay off, I would think that might be fun.

I'm sure they'll change it further before launch, like they've already done for some of the shown elites.

Have a good one, Inks!

+Ryan Rampersad thanks, yeah and I think that is part of it. The overload is different but not different enough. The overloads more or less do what you would expect them to do.

I participated in this. I made some powershell scripts to handle the client login juggling, but it's just as easy as you show here.

I don't mind it. I rarely login on my second account to get the extra bonus gold that could be waiting for me. I'm months behind on that account now. The people who do this likely already have loads of gold, loads of stuff - legendaries, ascended, etc, and play with people regularly. If those dedicated players can be dedicated more to bother doing this, that's cool for them.

The economy is so inflated these days it's not even funny, but I doubt this is the significant factor causing that inflation.

+Ryan Rampersad I personaly am a player who gets everything from my own hands , i don't try to get throught the system , and it was the same problem as warcraft .... I couldn't enjoy leveling or playing the game to get what i want , i had to do some pretty fucked up things to get my gold ....


I understand how people wants there legendaries / skins .... But it's the balance that will be touched then ... If the game was able to give you everything from the start , it wouldn't be a good thing since the basic thing you wanna do in MMO is getting your stuff to the max.
But yeah , as you said , " I doubt this is the significant factor causing that inflation." , i personaly don't know how to get gold with a particular method / technique... BUT , i did know that materials were the thing to get gold. I don't craft because i droped 2 legendaries without asking since i started playing , and my characters are pretty good now with good stuff that i get with karma or fractals. People should slow down their journey in the game and just chill a bit to have a lot of fun also , even one of my friend is getting in the spiral of wanting the ULTIMATE thing that he wants ... It's sad because they miss a lot of good exeprience ....
