No, but if you can program in C/C++ then you will not have a problem writing apps for android.

LOL, this reminded me of an episode of Chuck where Casey tells Morgan (who has lost some of his memory) that he should start with Episode 1...it's everyone's favorite.

Later in the episode Morgan says, really, I liked that? LOL.

Another great moment in that episode is where Casey gave Morgan the trilogy of Indiana Jones and Morgan goes, "three movies huh?" And Casey says, "Yep, they only made three."

Saw that, too. That was funny.

I know the prequels get a bad rap, but I thought Episode III was excellent.

So I read your guys' convo a bunch of pages back. I'm curious as to why everyone who expressed an opinion said that a star wars virgin definitely has to start with episode 4. I'm not convinced that he/she should start with episode 1 or 4; I think it can go either way - sequence of release or chronological order.

It reminds me of the godfather trilogy. I've been told there is a version of the trilogy that is in chronological order but I haven't seen it. I would think GII has a totally different feel without the flashbacks to Vito's childhood.

1056 great all around yeast....AAII you should give a try....A lil more complex but still fairly clean.

In our Pils you use straight Saaz? Love all noble hops which goes against the NW style where I am. Everything seems to be about high AA...I like my hops more mellow.

The story was told 4-6 -- most people believe 1-3 simply compliment and fill in gaps from the original story (or atleast thats one of the nicer things said about the prequels)

My favorite hoppy beers include a lot of late editions to the boil. I think it gives a nice hoppy taste but doesn't make the hop flavor to overwhelming. Given the prices of hops I know this is not always practical in retail.

I agree it could go either way, but that's not the way we had it back in my day LOL (insert old geezer voice).

Besides, if they had released Epsiode 1 first, I seriously doubt it would have had the same effect as 4 did on the populace. Let's face it, 1 is pretty long, drawn out, and kinda blah.

4, while not perfect, completely captured a great story in a single movie. Combine that with (at the time) eye-popping visuals that STILL look good today, and you have an all time classic.

I vote for theatrical release order. And am still shocked that BB has not seen ANY of them!?!

III was awesome. Just when I thought Lucas had completely lost his mind (along with his ability to edit out horrendous dialogue), he redeemed himself. One was pretty terrible. Two was better in that it provided the groundwork for the political coup beautifully executed by Sidius... and excellent battle scenes. But that said, I still want to throw a heavy object at my TV during any dialogue between Padme and Anakin!

Agreed! I dry hop my CDA and ESB, you cant beat the aroma you get. Folks here love their big beers though so have to try to please the customer base.....I am not VZW afterall

On the Star Wars question, I have to vote for starting with Episode IV. Why, you ask? Because you absolutely have to experience that opening sequence as your inauguration to the franchise (imo)!

I would stay away from Mr. Beer and instead take a trip to your local home brew store. They will set you up with everything you need for your first brew.

It could just something else for TBH, but if it is nexus related, then it seems he's reeling in his predictions for 12/15 or later.

On Vanilla Android, you don't need an app. You go into your Wireless settings, and turn on Mobile Hotspot there.

Good to know, thx Early. I was aware of NDK, but thought that it was woefully out of date. Rev 7 / Nov '11: not obsolete.

So I read your guys' convo a bunch of pages back. I'm curious as to why everyone who expressed an opinion said that a star wars virgin definitely has to start with episode 4. I'm not convinced that he/she should start with episode 1 or 4; I think it can go either way - sequence of release or chronological order.

It reminds me of the godfather trilogy. I've been told there is a version of the trilogy that is in chronological order but I haven't seen it. I would think GII has a totally different feel without the flashbacks to Vito's childhood.
Well, I guess opinions will vary, of course. But in my opinion, the Star Wars saga is less about the rebels vs. empire, Luke vs. Vader, Han and Leia, etc. It's really about the tragedy of Anakin Skywalker and how that character was resolved.

Staging the story in such a way that you see this evil incarnate-type person, and then showing you how he was once good and that he was never "all evil" or "all good", just makes for thrilling discovery. The tragedy scene in Episode III is the centerpiece of the entire saga, and it should be viewed as the climax.

But that's just my take.

Outside of the Nexus beer is the most appropriate thing to talk about. Beer and disappointment go hand in hand. Next topic is nuts then Star Wars. Bro Code

Or possibly giving pre-order date?

I think it's also important to join in at Episode IV so you can see how things progress to the end. THEN watch the prequels, knowing full well that a total train wreck is coming but you don't know HOW.

Kind of like watching Titanic. You KNOW the ship sinks, but getting there was the whole movie.

I think I will be staying up late to watch for a pre-order tonight with release on the 8th. I am usually pretty negative on here but these latest rumors have me hopeful for the first time in a while.

It would be interesting if they do pre-orders on 12/01 when that Google exec said it would come out in November. Seems like perfect timing to spite google. Maybe I'm just bitter.

If they do delay our precious until 2012 I will be on Sprint or AT&T.

If you don't have a LHB store nearby Northern Brewer is a great place. I have bought from them when I couldnt find it elsewhere. Reasonable price and cheap shipping. Start small, pay attention to details, and keep good notes and in no time you will be making great beer.

It would be evil if they were to put the pre-order up at 11:59, just to make the november that google said true. But I wouldn't mind.

Does Verizon usually just pop up a pre-order at midnight with no announcement? Just wondering if it's been done before?

Here are a couple of other websites for brewing...

Brewmasters Warehouse <-----best prices for shipping I have found.

Homebrew Supplies for Making Beer - Rebel Brewer <-----local to me so I had to add them
