  1. haven't posted here in a time lol

  2. In light of Elon Musk's plan to colonize Mars, would you personally go to Mars if you had the chance?

      Stupidity is just bound to follow, so, really, what's the point?

  3. The R179 thread is going to be hugely entertaining in the coming months!

      I am so happy that R179s are here now

  4. So I'm finding that I can't download Euro Truck mods anymore, because NoScript blocks the actual downloads as well. adfly is the cancer of the internet and if it didn't exist, I wouldn't need to use a script blocker. sigh

      Doesn't noScript allow you to manually whitelist individual domains one each page? That could help you dodge the ads while still have the content in tact.

    2. ttcsubwayfan

      It does, but for some reason, adfly doesn't seem to have multiple domains. The menu indicates that the only domain on the pages I'm being linked to is adfly itself, which I take it to mean they store the malicious ads on their servers.

  5. Man, Google just keeps making Maps look worse and worse every year

      i think it looks better now but is a lil slower, i don't mind it tho

      I liked it when they had main streets indicated yellow and side streets indicated white, pre 2014. Since then, they've removed the yellow for main streets, because differentiating between a major thoroughfare and a random residential street is for plebs. The latest update takes the cake though. The streets are so undefined, I feel like I need glasses when viewing the program.

      See this shout, and I say to myself, what did they do to f*** up the map now...

       

      I check it out, and I don't mind the removal of the yellow street color (for major roads)....

       

      What baffles me though, is that peach colored shit under some of the roads - What is that supposed to represent?

  6. Just found about NoScript, an add on for Firefox. This is the solution to the issues with mod downloading I have, absolutely essential to the internet experience.

      Yep, been around awhile. Couple it with Flashblock, Better Privacy and Adblock Plus and see how much crap gets filtered.

      The sites that attempt to guilt-trip you into enabling all the trackers aren't worth visiting.

  7. Downloading mods for games can be a really horrific experience when the uploader uses some cheap site with pop ups.

      Euro Truck Simulator 2 is another big one. Some people will go for a higher class of site like Dropbox, but most will use a site like Uploadfiles.eu or Sharemods.com, and every time I open the download on one of those it also opens numerous spam pop ups.

      I dare Adblock naysayers to browse those sites without ABP for even 10 minutes.

    4. ttcsubwayfan

      ttcsubwayfan

      That is so true. I use Adblock, I can't imagine what manner of experience these sites would be without it. I mean, it's one thing to be stupid and click on a shady sounding link, and another to have it open for you.

  12. Happy back to the future day

  13. Watched Interstellar last night... what an incredible movie.

  14. Today I had the pleasure of being witness to one of the most inconsiderate transit passengers I had ever seen. He decided to change clothes while on the bus, stripping down to his underwear (and sitting on one of the seats whilst in this state of undress). The bus was crowded so the driver couldn't see him. Then (he was sitting on a sideways facing seat), he proceeded to put his feat up on the seats across the aisle and blocked everyone's way, taking a while to move his feet when some...

      Must've been an escaped mental patient. Or weed. Maybe he was on weed, that stuff makes people do some weird shhh.

      There's this one video I saw that had a grown drunk man butt naked on the (6) train showing his junk and everything. Scariest thing I ever saw.

    4. ttcsubwayfan

      ttcsubwayfan

      No, this wasn't a mental patient... it was a student. I've been in classes with him, I thought he seemed like a normal guy, LOL

  15. Some peole really need to be more tolerant of the fact that other people have different opinions than them.

  16. Why is everyone making such a big deal about the R143 (J)? Besides the swapped stickers on the front those cars look the exact same.

      I think it may have to do with the fact that the 143s haven't left the L since 2008.

      A subway car that's been around for several years is now on another line... Oooooo.... Ahhhh... *Sarcasm*

  17. Some people need to stop taking things so personally. Geez.

  18. Ugh, another day where the temperatures didn't climb above 22 celsius (71.6 Fahrenheit). Same nonsense as last year. I haven't been properly warm since the summer of 2013, when I went on vacation to Slovakia. Even last year, when I went to Florida, it rained at least half the time. I need this?

      I'll trade! Today the windchill was around 12 celsius (53.6 Fahrenheit).

      BM5 via Woodhaven

      Eh, I can possibly deal with that, lol. My ideal temperature would be 75 or 80 at most. And if the summers are pretty cool, then how are the winters over there?

    4. ttcsubwayfan

      ttcsubwayfan

      The winters are even worse. -20 to -30 Celsius (-4 to -22 F) are a common thing. If you want to go outside, you'd better have many layers on and be prepared to not be out too long. I can't believe that 3-4 years back I was complaining about our lackluster winters and the fact that we never had much snow!

  19. Ugh, the new Flickr interface is the absolute worst thing I have ever clapped my eyes on.

      I like the ability to sort by year taken, but I don't like how the new photostream looks... there's just too much dead white space for my liking, which they could easily fix by making the photo thumbnails bigger.

       

      But what I hate the most is the new album page. It just looks so bad. The giant black rectangle with album info is unnecessary (and it annoys me how, every time I click on the album description, it automatically brings me into an editor). Why fix what isn't bro...

  20. I'm not dead! I was just in Slovakia because of my aunt, who got married. I visited Bratislava a few times. Photos soon.

  21. Merry Christmas all

  22. Found an interesting strategy for getting photos of things I have videos of. When the video is paused and there isn't any motion blur, I take a screenshot, and crop it. This might seem horribly obvious to some people but the idea never occured to me before. I know have some decent captures of R32 interiors which I didn't have before. Cool.

      I'm fairly certain a lot of cameras these days with recording capabilities has the feature to record and take pics at the same time on the device itself.

    3. ttcsubwayfan

      ttcsubwayfan

      You're probably right, and I should have a look at my own camera and see if it can do that as well, but what I was referring to was what happened in the past... i.e. I filmed a bunch of videos on board R32s but I didn't take many photos, so I print screened the video and managed to get some "photos", as it were.

    4. peacemak3r

      peacemak3r

      Yeah most of the newer phones has this capability so I'm sure a lot of cameras should have it as well.

  23. My New York trip has been postponed AGAIN (I was supposed to stop over there on the way back from a vacation in Florida), this time due to a lack of hotels willing to accomodate large families for non-outrageous prices. Not again!!!

      @theaveragejoe: True, it's not the worst location, but it's no New York. Oh well.

       

      @R188: Unfortunately I'm on a killer time limit, so it's very unlikely that I'll get to look for those sets at all. Unfortunate, but that's the way the cookie crumbles. Would be worse if all trains had a RFW view on the Queens end, those things would be mocking me to no end. A more important priority, for me, is getting exterior shots, and I think I can do that at GC. I don...

      I don't even think I can head over to Willets Point and photo the yard there, it's so out of the way from everything else I'm in search of. It is what it is.

      ttcsubwayfan then I got increadibly lucky because two days in a row a different times of day i caught 1960 with a half cab.

  24. I am now taking requests for Luminator Horizon (prototype) and Mega:MAX signs. Check it out! http://www.nyctransitforums.com/forums/topic/44777-ttcsubwayfans-signs/?p=771944
