Hello Minerva and KidD01. Just passing through the forums. Good to see a few of the old faces still making an appearance.

@Minerva - since my last posting her I've had three extended visits to Japan. What a beautiful country!

Fallout NV for me, although I have enjoyed all of them. NV is best for NPC companions. Fallout 1 also excellent, and Fallout 2 would have been better apart from all the bugs (disappearing motor cars etc).

I suppose the Sheriffs Duster and Sheriffs Hat (found in the Sheriffs residence in Primm) are the obvious choices. If you want something a bit heavier duty, the Riot Gear from Lonesome Road look like dusters as well.

Spoiler: If you sneak around in the alley, the mad preacher will show up as a green bar on your detector, rather than red. If you hit V, the guy comes into view and can be sniped. Reilly's Rangers is nearby to the east - look for the sandbagged emplacements (there are a few of them) which are near p...

I like the game, although I miss the character interactions which were better in the earlier Fallouts.

After playing them, I suppose i am used to some of the more tedious aspects of the game such as searching corpses, bins, etc. At least you get an indication when they are empty in this game. :cool:

Don't forget that face transplants will mainly be used for burns victims, or for others who have suffered disfiguring injuries. In these cases, the person will have lost their original appearance, and in many cases won't look particularly human even. A face transplant at least gives them a chance to...

Flesh eating plants usually grow in areas where the soil is very nitrate poor. Since nitrates are needed to make proteins and DNA, the plants get what they need by trapping insects. On the inside of the trap are two fine hairs. If both of them are nudged (such as by an insect crawling around on the ...

A sad loss. My favourite Ronnie Barker series was "Porridge", a comedy series set in a dour prison environment, with Barker playing an old lag, Fletcher. :cool:

In Australia, women are admitted to all branches of the military, but are not assigned to active combat areas. I cannot see any particular reason why they should not be able to participate equally in all activities. There are many examples of women fighting alongside men in recent conflicts - women ...

Thanks for bringing that to our attention Fable. I've been a fan of the Goons and Python since my early years. Max must have been about the last surviving performer from that show, though I believe Eric Sykes who co-wrote many of the scripts is still going. :cool:

This stuff has been around for a while. IIRC it was launched not long after the US invasion of Afghanistan, the idea being that Muslims should support a local product rather than imports from the US.
No sillier than "Freedom Fries" IMO. :cool:

Couldn't access Top Web for a while, but it seems fine now. Tybs is busily spamming away at the moment.
