  1. Yeah, I have always been able to run the civ series almost no matter what platform, and this laptop should be fine. I am well above specs on everything but the graphics card, but it seems that is the bottleneck. I didn't really care for the new graphics anyway, but each turn even in the first 20 moves took way more time than what I would expect.
  2. running like molasses...
  3. No idea if my laptop can handle this... I think I will download a "copy" before buying. Is the GPU the biggest hurdle for people?
  4. Not sure how I am going to survive the next three months... between Civ VI and FM17...
  5. trying to resist...
  6. Part of the issue in the UK is the price. Covering all of the Prem, and the cup comps, plus Champions League can run you around £200/month (about $250). Granted, that covers a lot more than just the Prem, but if that's what you want, that price buys you many pints down at the pub. Leeds (Leeds! Leeds! Leeds!) and Liverpool has among the cheapest prices in England at £2.66-ish/pint. That's 75 pints per months, or 750 pints per season. Divide that with 38 league games, some euro footy, couple of cups, let's say 50 games. That's 15 pints/game. Not a bad night out. (In London, you still get 10 pints/game)

  8. 10-15 WSW from Leeds! (20 or so east of the Mancs.) Leeds! Leeds! Leeds!
  9. Yeah, it's crazy how early they start. They didn't go to school games that early (scouts), but they sure checked out the travel teams. I don't think there's much difference to be honest, but it is another chance to show what you can do. If she is serious about it, it will not hurt to do it all. My niece is a goalie too btw, freshman, started the last two games because their senior goalie got a concussion and is 2-0.
  10. My niece just started as a freshman, got heavily recruited. What do you need to know? ETA: she went to all camps around 8th grade and forward, played travel leagues, all national camps. Girls can be recruited as juniors I believe, and she got flown to 20-30 colleges around the country. Finally decided as a senior in high school and have a full athletic ride (she also had straight A's through high school, not sure if that played into the full ride). if you want specific details I can ask my SIL, she managed that whole thing...
  11. How does tthis bein sports connect work? Can I view old games, or just live? Pause the live feed?
  12. Huh, neat board
  13. Can is not up to speed yet after niggles and being away during the summer. Firmino picked up a muscle injury in training this week. Nothing serious, but Klopp didn't want to risk him.
  14. yeah, not clicking that link...
