« Sun Nov 23, '14, 10:33 pm »   yes ps3 original fat model is backwards with psx and ps2. i actually didnt hunt down this model till last year specifically because of the price. but anything that frees up space and streamlines my tech world is worth it. if i could just emulate all systems, i wouldnt own any.
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 9:30 pm »   It was, but it was so expensive.
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 9:15 pm »   I think the original long-discontinued PS3 was compatible
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 9:14 pm »   Ok then, PS2 remains plugged. And my PSX is chipped so my copied games wont work in the PS3 (though my originals will)
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 9:11 pm »   1 hour and 12 minutes of Bioshock Infinite is .10 kilowatt-hours, with 1 minute and 38 seconds of it being (obvious) loading. My experimental method seems solid but I caught and fixed a few kinks.
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 9:08 pm »   The slim model is backwards compatible with PSX, but not the PS2.
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 9:07 pm »   Since I'm getting one tomorrow, should I put my PS2 away in my console museum?
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 9:07 pm »   It the PS3 backwards compatible?
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 8:59 pm »   I should go actually try my PS2 and see if it still actually works. (I mean, I got Persona 4 out of it when I switched rooms months ago...)
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 8:29 pm »   In some ways I wish I had the original for that, but all the same, it was just too expensive. Plus my PS2 still works great and it can still emulate PSX.
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 7:48 pm »   the power thing is nice, but i enjoy my first generation model for its backward compatability with ps1 and ps2 games. 3 systems in one. but yes its a power consumer.
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 7:27 pm »   Also, that's cool, Parma. Electronics are getting more efficient all the time, and I was checking out PS3 specs through the generations. Turns out that the slim model I have is 35-40% more power efficient than the original model.
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 7:24 pm »   Actually, I was wrong. My PS3 consumes 2 watts/second in standby, I was accidentally reading the volt-ampere data earlier when I said 8. And in 3 hours of standby, it still hasn't drawn enough power to register in the Kill A Watt's kilowatt/hour reader.
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 7:05 pm »   WB: I tried to find something else that consumes 8 watts for comparison, but was only able to turn up this low power PC. So I guess Sony's on the money with the PS3 :)
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 3:58 pm »   To be specific, I mean the PS3 slim 320 gig model, which is the 4th generation of the console.
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 3:51 pm »   For anyone who cares, the Playstation 3 draws 8 watts of power in standby mode.
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 3:50 pm »   *Inhales and exhales sharply and deliberately into shout box.*
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 3:39 pm »   (I mean, feel better! But DON'T BREATHE ON ME)
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 3:39 pm »   Get away from me, all you sick people
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 4:24 am »   Feel better soon WB and Snorb.
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 3:12 am »   Thanks Tanith. Abdolutely get your flu shots too! And Snorb, feel better. Sounds like a nasty infection...
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 1:52 am »   thanks x_X
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 1:49 am »   Hope you two get better soon. This reminds me: I really need to get the kids and myself to the pharmacy to get our flu shots.
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 1:19 am »   I've had this for like a week. I don't think the eardrops/Z-Pac is helping much ;_;
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 1:10 am »   Between the two of us I think we have one completely messed up ears-nose-throat system, Snorb.
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 1:06 am »   The ear infection patient has also entered the shout box
« Sun Nov 23, '14, 12:55 am »   *The Sudafed zombie enters the shout box.*
« Sat Nov 22, '14, 12:20 pm »   For those who care: I changed my story's title for the last time. I promise. :)
« Sat Nov 22, '14, 2:06 am »   Okay, I forgot the opening song went from instrumental version of From Russia With Love to the Bond theme (very seamlessly, might I add)
« Sat Nov 22, '14, 2:00 am »   (hands Snorb a pocket protector)
« Sat Nov 22, '14, 1:57 am »   (nerds out)
« Sat Nov 22, '14, 1:54 am »   The game's good, but its immediate predecessor (Everything or Nothing) had the very best vehicle level ever done in video game history, the Pontchartrain Crossing Bridge
« Sat Nov 22, '14, 1:52 am »   That's a good one, yep. The movie, I mean. I've never played the video game.
« Sat Nov 22, '14, 1:51 am »   (No effort was made to explain why James Bond sounds 43 years older than he should have been, but oh my God that game was awesome)
« Sat Nov 22, '14, 1:50 am »   It's From Russia With Love, which was such a good movie Connery reprised the role for the video game.
« Sat Nov 22, '14, 1:50 am »   Thunderball? That's my favorite of the Connery films.
« Sat Nov 22, '14, 1:49 am »   (Not a bad movie tho)
« Sat Nov 22, '14, 1:49 am »   Nope!
« Sat Nov 22, '14, 1:46 am »   I'm going to guess: "You Only Live Twice."
« Sat Nov 22, '14, 1:43 am »   Which one?
« Sat Nov 22, '14, 1:42 am »   Zomg, you guys, my favorite Connery 007 movie's coming on in 20 minutes
« Sat Nov 22, '14, 1:42 am »   (Revers the shoutbox)
« Sat Nov 22, '14, 1:23 am »   I killed the shoutbox.
« Fri Nov 21, '14, 10:24 pm »   This isn't the kind of place where apartments go for months unleased.
« Fri Nov 21, '14, 10:21 pm »   They've been in and out of that apartment all day today, so something up there isn't working right. Which may explain why it's been so long since someone has lived up there.
« Fri Nov 21, '14, 10:17 pm »   Just because it was hard for me to get to sleep doesn't mean I shouldn't try. That was my thinking. It turns out it wasn't new neighbors after all. It was the MAINTENANCE CREW. At 10PM at night. I just... ugh.
« Fri Nov 21, '14, 9:03 pm »   When seen that way, it makes sense. But I bet anyone who wants to sleep but can't will not be likely to consider that option at that moment.
« Fri Nov 21, '14, 7:22 pm »   My point was: they're already keeping you awake so you're not really sleeping. Might as well shave some of that time off! Maybe. Maybe I'm just a rambling idiot; wouldn't be the first time ;-)
« Fri Nov 21, '14, 7:08 pm »   If that makes me a bad neighbor, then oh well.
« Fri Nov 21, '14, 7:08 pm »   I wouldn't help anyone move at 10PM, not unless the next day was a holiday. 10PM is bedtime here. We have to be up early for school and commuting.
« Fri Nov 21, '14, 6:49 pm »   Fact: native french speakers hate the word "neighbors", it is SO hard to learn to spell correctly
« Fri Nov 21, '14, 6:49 pm »   Personally, I would have given them a hand. Not only do you start great with your neighbors, you get free exercise and you help them finish quicker.
« Fri Nov 21, '14, 6:38 pm »   Custom fitted earplugs. Best thing for those kind of nights.
« Fri Nov 21, '14, 5:09 pm »   I agree. They get credit for trying to be quiet. In fact, it was probably the quietest move I've ever witnessed. But at midnight? Who cares how quiet you're *trying* to be!
« Fri Nov 21, '14, 5:06 pm »   Schedule shmedule. There is stuff you just dont do
« Fri Nov 21, '14, 5:04 pm »   I about called the police. I didn't, because I know schedules around here are all over the place. Still, FIND A WEEKEND, PEOPLE.
« Fri Nov 21, '14, 5:03 pm »   I'm hoping to nap today while the kids are at school. This may be my final full week of being without a job, which is a good thing, but luxury napping will not be an option soon.
« Fri Nov 21, '14, 5:03 pm »   Wow. Talk about a polite entrance
