    <p>Speaking of Microsoft buying things…</p><p><br></p><p>Paul/Brad, have you heard of a company called Cakewalk? They make a really nice DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) called SONAR, but Gibson (the parent company) is shutting it down. There's a petition people are signing hoping that Microsoft will buy them so they can have a "Logic Pro" competitor. Thoughts?</p>

    <p>Brad, have you tried just using the Waze widget? One hit of a refresh button and if I am home it will tell me how long it takes me to get to work and if I am at work it tells me how long it will take to get home. No yelling required.</p>

    <p>An additional problem is that in Necropolisoften there are no intelligible descriptions of weapons, potions, scrolls and food that you are preparing. Or there are no identification scrolls to determine what kind of unknown fluid you found. Everything is learned by experience: what does "Frost of a frosty giant", "Dragon bile" or, for example, "Potion of growth and punishment"; what kind of super-blow will this second-level "Unpronounceable Staff" have? What will become of me if I drink a bottle of Lapis Primus? Therefore, there is always the risk that if you use or use something in <a href="https://www.friv2online.com/pt&quot; target="_blank">you</a> jogos friv games, you will do harm to yourself – the hero can easily poison (it will really tear) or, for example, it will be paralyzed. In addition, in the process of production and use, the character becomes completely defenseless and will be easy prey for enemies who adore crowds to materialize right out of the air behind you.&nbsp;</p>

    <p>Pros: the game forces you to go out and explore the sights; a generator of memes and merry cases (but not the fact that personally with you); two hundred Pokemon (and hope for additions). Cons: obvious technical problems; unintelligible long-term prospects.</p>
