Was just watching UPF and saw the new shirt. Went to order it and use my discount code. It wouldn't let me enter text in the discount text field on Chrome or Internet Explorer. Guess I'll just have to wait.

I still can't stop crying every time I think about this. Ryan was like a friend to me even though I never met him in person. I've listened to and seen him so often over the last 6 years or so that I feel like I knew him. Thanks to the nature of Giant Bomb I came to learn a lot about him and his personality. He was passionate about everything he did and his tremendous smile and wonderful laugh never failed to make my day better. That Quick Look for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince always makes me laugh. He was an absolute professional and always made me feel welcome whenever he hosted anything.
His passing will leave a big empty space in my life. I can only imagine the pain his wife and friends must be experiencing right now. He always seemed like a truly great and close friend to Jeff and I'm sure he's hurting terribly right now as well. My heart and prayers go out to everyone who is hurting right now because of this sad thing that has happened. Thanks for everything, Ryan. Rest in peace, Good Sir.
Before the update I was able to watch videos in high quality progressive without any issues. Now when I do that it runs terribly. Not smooth at all. Like when the frame rate dips out in a game. I watch stuff in low progressive now and the video quality is awful. I end up having to just listen to the video instead of watching it. If I watch Quick Looks, I select the Youtube option and that is better. I was excited when they announced the resume feature for videos but the player makes streaming videos awful and slow. End up just buffering out the video each time I don't finish a 2hr video. I have cable internet and use Chrome as my browser. I have a 3 year old laptop that runs Windows 7 64bit, 2GB of RAM, and whatever cheapy video card came with the thing. Intel Celeron CPU 900 @2.2GHz.
I listen to most of my music in my car which only has a CD player so I usually just buy physical CDs. They do take up room in my house though so I have been putting them in wallets lately. I have a cheap laptop and no good way to burn CDs also. I could buy a burning program or something but that's just money I could spend on more CDs. Lately though, I have been buying stuff digitally from Amazon's mp3 store because they have ridiculously good deals on entire albums. Definitely looking to only buy music digitally within the next year or so. Amazon often has exclusive songs and gives you a digital booklet as well so you aren't really missing a whole lot.
