What are your top 5 games or timewasters and why you like them? Also name what OS they are on.

 

My top 5 for Android

  1. GTA III - I remember playing this game for hours on end on the PS2. It brings back lots of memories playing it on my phone. The controls take some getting used to, but I love the game.
  2. COLLAPSE - Block breaking game that is simple but addicting
  3. Pinochle - We play pinochle in the office on lunch break and it's addicting, so I play this when I need my fix away from work. The AI is not very smart and the computer makes some dumb mistakes, but it is the only one out there.
  4. Netflix - I don't think there is a limit to the number of times someone can watch the big lebowski.
  5. Monopoly - Great game and it keeps track of money for you so there is none of that annoying thinking to do.

My overall time waster is Pulse. You can load all sorts of tech/news/ sports entertainment sites or whatever. I've loaded up 5 pages with different interests. It gives me something to read when I'm stuck in line or at the airport or out shopping with the wife.

I'm a nerd. I like to read Wikipedia. Just pick a random topic or subject that I have some peripheral interest in and read. Especially geographical subjects. I used to read the Encyclopedia Brittanica when I was a kid. Major dork alert. However, when I want to kill time mindlessly, I started playing Angry Birds in the past month or so. I put it off forever. My kids always play it. I finally have succumb.

I used to hit random word on urban dictionary for hours on end. I am well versed in slang that nobody knows about and people think I am weird because of it. I did the same on Wikipedia, but it takes a few tries to get anything interesting. I like to follow links that are in the interesting wikipedia articles I find.

The wife just got me hooked on tangram. It gives you a shape and a bunch of small pieces that you have to fit in the big shape to fill it up.

    • ...and I just this morning realized you meant Cumberland, MD.  It threw me because there's an Ashby in Cumberland County, VA, which I'm far more familiar with. - Trip
    • I don't have anything solid to offer on Cumberland, but I came down US-15 today and the water tower site in Weber City is now up and running with B2/12/4/71 (035ACCxx), I believe I saw new T-Mobile antennas on the tower at Sprouses Corner which I will try to confirm on Saturday (definitely not running if they're there), and I believe I may have connected to something that got converted in Farmville.  By process of elimination, my guess is Lancer Park, but I hope to find out tomorrow or Saturday. So upgrades are clearly coming.  You may want to see if your local government officials can tell you anything.  Probably not, but can't hurt to ask. - Trip
    • Interesting twist.  Today, I took off for southern Virginia and had my T-Mobile B71 phone (Revvlry on Android 10) and I noticed the GPS was bad as compared to my other two devices on SCP on the dash.  Couldn't get it to clear by toggling the Location Services box, so I quit and restarted SCP. When I did so, it first came up with the bad coordinates, then extremely rapidly zipped through from where it was stuck all the way up to where I was currently, like the coordinates were backlogged and then suddenly flushed out within a few short seconds.  More bizarrely, I noticed the same behavior on two other devices (Pixel 3a and Moto One 5G Ace, both on Android 11) and had to do the same thing to those.  I also dumped my trails on all three, assuming they were all bad by then.  The rest of my devices were correct. I was barreling down the highway at the time, so I couldn't investigate further.  Other than my quoted message above, I've never seen this behavior before, and now it seems to be widespread.  - Trip
    • Does anyone have any updates to the Cumberland/Mineral County area? Specifically looking to get TMHI in Ft. Ashby.
    • Actually, you are correct. It is possible Dish won't take it. Meanwhile both Dish and T-Mobile pretend they don't want it for negotiation purposes.
