#12842457 CAG Beer Drinkers Unite! Beer Snobs and Cheap Ass Drunks Welcome!

Posted by sendme on 01 August 2015 - 08:05 PM

Picked up some of that Not Your Father's Root Beer.  It's not that bad.  Not as great as I expected it to be, but it's not bad at all.  I can't even taste any alcohol in it, but you you drink enough that 5.9 will sneak up on you.  I'm not really sure what one I like better, Row Hard Root Beer or this.  Row Hard has more of an alcohol taste that seems a bit much, but good.  This like I said you can't even taste alcohol.

Sad that it's like that for fans.  Championship and high ticket prices or no championship and low ticket prices.  




#12591959 Bing Rewards Xbox points are FUBAR

Posted by sendme on 25 March 2015 - 09:11 AM

As someone that did use 5 accounts and run a bot I say take the ban if you're violating the TOS and stop crying.  I had accounts banned a lot like most that were active in this thread about a year and a half to 2 years ago.  Sadly I don't think it was the bot that got me. I had searches saved in folders that I would open all at once.  I think that is what got me. Sure it sucked and I wasn't happy but I did eventually get over it.  I have my first account still and I do remember one other account not being banned, but I can't even remember the log in and password for it.  Not long after I went down to just the one account Bing started making all the changes when it came to trying to redeem. I remember people were using services to generate a fake phone number so they could get a one time text with the code needed to redeem.  Thankfully I didn't go that far.  Sadly I still see posts on other sites from people trying to get away with more than one account, or more accounts than people living in a household. 

 

Most Perk users seem to be just as bad as the Bing users that were making more accounts than people in the household.  They all want to run 5+ devices for all apps then cry about load times and getting banned when it's intended that the user interacts with the app not just set it and leave it run all day. 

 

I'm sure from most of the free gift card services like Bing, Perk and Swagbucks users have been banned that were not in violation of TOS, or were unknowingly in violation and were banned.  They have a right to complain, and I do feel bad for them.  I'm sure at some point it will happen to me now that I'm using Bing legitimately.  For anyone that has been banned that has run a bot, opened a folder with saved searches all at once, ran more accounts than people in your household, or any other violation you got caught. Sucks for you I know I had the same happen and got over it. I'm sure you can too.  If they were nice enough to let you keep one account then use it and stop violating the TOS and run some of the other services for free gift cards.  May need to do a little more work, but you get a lot more than just with Bing.

 

I'm not point blame at anyone, or trying to say that the ones posting got banned because the violated TOS.  Bing has a BS way of judging that does get things wrong.  It also seems like when a few people get banned the flood gates open up and Bing does a mass banning. 




#12345580 Bing Rewards Xbox points are FUBAR

Posted by sendme on 20 December 2014 - 12:36 PM

Might as well change this to the rewards points thread.  Looks like Bing is getting worse as from what I have read over the past few pages now dropped everyone to 15 points.  I thought gold were able to get 30, 60, or 90.  They have also over the past year to 2 years started to ban accounts when they met the 5 per house hold limit.  I had them maxed and decided to just stop.  I have 2 accounts, but only use one.  

 

Swagbucks has also taken a big hit.  Before the overhaul of their app one could play the comedy videos and get the 50 points really quick.  I'd load it up before work and just let them play.  By the time I had to leave a half hour had past after I mixed out.  Now only videos with the app that I seem to get points for are the travel videos.  Now that the app has been dropped to 36 points a day and the travel videos taking longer it seems to take forever.  One good thing is they seem to have fixed it.  I no longer have an ad that comes up that I have to press or just the random blank screen that causes the screen to shutoff.  I only do the videos on the phone and before it was fine, I'd get 5 bucks for amazon.com every 9 days.  I guess that's about every 2 weeks now.  I'll have to give the other video apps a try as well.  

 

Not sure if I want to go and get 5 phones for the Perk TV.  I'm definitely not going to babysit them and make sure they're still playing videos every 2 hours.  I don't think they would like it at work if I brought in a power strip to plug in 5 phones so I could every 2 hours make sure they're still playing videos.  Also think that I would quickly go over my 5 gigs of tethering that I get on T-Mobile.  

 

I also run https://play.google....eepay.mpm&hl=en I do have to at times load it up because it stops working, but that may only be once a week.  You get 20 points a day, 100 points when a survey comes up on your phone and it's 100 points for every dollar in Amazon.com gift cards that are 5 dollars or more. I have received 10 dollars total and have been using it maybe a month and a half.  Unless it's my imagination, but when talking on the phone it seems to give more points.  So if you talk on your phone a lot then you could build up points quick. I mostly text and use data.

 

I remember trying Zoombucks at one point, but with out an app to run on my phone it just took way to long.  I don't think I even made a dent in points for the lowest amazon gift card.  Has anyone used it?  I just did a search to see if they had an android app,but nothing came up. 

 

EDIT:  Found a list of the shortest Swagbucks videos for the apps, and I thought I would share it for those that may not have known about it.

It really has made things a lot faster.  I haven't had the SBTV app running long and I'm already 16 points in.




#12084531 Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Posted by sendme on 11 September 2014 - 09:31 AM

Saw the pictures yesterday, and I'm not sure what to think so I'm holding off till I see the movie.  However I think I'm starting to like it, but then I think it just seems like they'er trying to modify the Tumbler and that just seems unoriginal.  I guess I have mixed feelings about it.  The one thing I am liking about the film is from what has been shown of Wonder Woman she belongs more in Conan the Barbarian than this.

#12061408 Let's argue about Mike Brown!

Posted by sendme on 03 September 2014 - 09:21 AM

Dumb.  Even if true, what does it matter who put together the donation fund for Officer Wilson?

 

We're talking about an Officer who shot someone while performing his work duties, and now has to move because news outlets like CNN pretty much put a roadmap to his house out to the public.  If he's guilty of wrong doing, he doesn't deserve the money.  But it hasn't been proven.  Instead, his name has been dragged through the mud in the court of public affairs using speculation instead of actual investigative journalism.

 

So, what if he is innocent?  His name has been dragged through the mud so much that it doesn't matter much.  Brown's family has been receiving donations too.  What if Brown was guilty of attacking the officer, and the shooting was justified?  Do they have deserve the money still then?

I can't agree more.  The family jumped the gun on this big time.  They tried to at one point say protesters did, but it was the family.  As the weeks of the protesting, rioting and looting went by more came out that made it seem like Officer Wilson was in the right.  I have watched on the news as facts have been stated supporting Officer Wilson only to have the reporter try to make Brown the victim.  




#12001327 Robin Williams dead at 63

Posted by sendme on 12 August 2014 - 12:24 AM

Don't have to be an ass.  It's just an opinion.  I don't care when someone kills themselves.  To me it's just what the hell was the point of all them years.  It was just a waste and that's all.




#12001248 Robin Williams dead at 63

Posted by sendme on 12 August 2014 - 12:00 AM

I guess I'm the only that doesn't care.  I liked his work and it sucks he's gone, but I just can't give a shit when it's suicide.  Things get bad and everyone has times in their lives that just suck.  You have to have some sort of hope or at least tell yourself what the hell lets see where it goes.

Cinemassacre: Michelangelo's Pizza Taste Test: Not sure if anyone has seen that or not. Thought I would post it with the movie out. Some of them sound as bad as the movie seems like it will be. I'm holding out some hope that it's not bad.

(Not taken by me.  I cant take this good of a photo)

 

 

One of the liquor stores in the area lets people reserve alcohol.  With it I have been able to get Sierra Nevada's beer camp 12 pack and now Deschutes' Black Butte XXVI.  I'm not a bid fan of beers aged him a bourbon barrel, but I really like this.  Only thing I'm not liking is I could only get one.  It's the 26th Birthday Reserve and is brewed with pomegranate, molasses with 50% aged in bourbon barrels blended with cocoa nibs and cranberry added.  Starts out a little sweet and fruity then finishes with a hint of bourbon and the cocoa.  The fruit is just enough to be interesting and cut back on the bourbon that to me usually is overpowering and all I taste in a beer that has been aged in a bourbon barrel. I haven't been able to taste the vanilla that is also listed as an ingredient, or any of the molasses.  The closer I get the end of the bottle the more I taste of the cocoa.  It could use a little less of a fruity taste, but then I think it would be to much on the bourbon side.  Other than this it's blended really well.  Really wish I could have got another one.  

 

Next on the list are:

 

2nd Shift Barrel Aged LSD Coffee

Charleville Barrel Aged Coffee Stout

Founders Dissenter

Perennial Savant Blanc

 

I'll post how they are when I get them.  I just finished the Black Butte while typing this and I'm buzzed and missing it.  I really want another one.  Not for right now, but for over the weekend.




#11946943 Free destiny Beta codes for Everyone! (xbone, 360, ps4, and ps3)

I'm going to have to do this for the 360 unless someone is willing to do this for me.  I used a code for the PS3 that a friend gave me.  I didn't know the file size is over 56gigs.  My PS3 is the 60 gig so unfortunately the code was useless and has now been used.  Thanks for posting this OP.




#11895156 CAG Car Thread!

Posted by sendme on 04 July 2014 - 08:27 PM

Found out last week about the car.  Just forgot to post an update.  Ended up being just the battery.  I have never had one do that when it went dead.  Glad it was just that as I was expecting worse.  However with it going to a dealer it cost me a lot more than I would have liked to pay for a better.




#11876389 Pacific Rim

Posted by sendme on 27 June 2014 - 09:32 AM

I don't usually expect to have to turn off my mind when watching a Guilleremo Del Toro movie.

I don't usually, but with this one it was just mindless fun.  Also I'm not sure how much of this fill was from him.  I remember reading an interview with him and he said something about wanting to do a robot film and finding a script.  It seemed like someone else wrote it, del Toro made some changes and got his name slapped on it to help sell it.

 

It would also be great if I were retarded. Pacific Rim blows dick.

To each his own.  I liked it however I did read that it was one of them films that you're going to like it or not.  Most didn't.  I went in expecting Robot Jox with a budget.  I got much more than that so I was happy.




#11870306 Upgrading graphics card on a built in GPU PC?

Posted by sendme on 25 June 2014 - 09:40 AM

I have to agree with what has been said.  Your PSU is the biggest issue.  I'm not sure about ATI, but it looks like for nVidia the best you can do is a 750ti.  They recommend at minimum 300 and depending on what you get no power cable or a 6 pin power cable for the card.  No matter what you go with I'd check in to disabling the on board video once the card is installed.  I haven't used anything with the video integrated in a long time, so I don't know if that is something you still have to do or no.
