Re: Fear The Walking Dead

Really disappointed with that ep. They had quite a sweet setup on the island - the ranger there was already into self-reliance and seemed quite well equipped. I don't buy that he was about to go 'Jonestown' as he was actively trying to improve fortifications and it was by no means certain that they ...

Re: Fear The Walking Dead

I don't know, but it seems like there could be something nefarious going on. Maybe something like a Redeker Plan to just save a small part of humanity and to consolidate remaining resources. L.A. appears to have been depopulated except for the 12 protected areas. Almost like they are setting-up "Ar...

Re: Re:

I give it, at most, an episode and a half before Alexandria becomes horrifying in some way. Sent via carrier wave. 5 episodes left until the season is over. My guess would be... Show #1 - will be about how Team Rick is having problems fitting into normal life in Alexandria, I sense some PTSD flashb...

Apparently, looks like Cody is going to take legal action.

In the post, Lundin accused the...

Re: Cody fired from Dual Survival

I thought that the first half of the show was reasonable and an interesting peek behind the scenes into how the show was produced - then in the second they seemed to try to address the main things with Joe that people on the internet forums had taken issue with whilst also starting to put Cody in a ...

Re: Cody fired from Dual Survival

Just viewed the 'special' they did ... Wow - spin, spin, spin ... they did a real number on Cody. Would be interesting to see a full account from his side (he's implied that there was a lot more going on but not elaborated) but I guess he has to hold his tongue and keep some sort of half decent rela...

Re: Cody fired from Dual Survival

I just watched the Norway episode and it was ridiculously funny. Joe talks about Cody being a risk, but at the beginning of the episode decided while hanging in a hole with his anchor points weakening that going deeper and swinging on the rope was ok to retrieve a back pack. Then the shelter incide...

Re: Cody fired from Dual Survival

Well, they've just aired Cody's last episode. Got to say, the production team are being somewhat naughty trying to milk suspense out of Cody's departure. They've been implying that tensions between the characters have been building up over the course of the season and culminated with the incident wh...

Re: Why Bear Grylls sucks.

This latest 'Island' show isn't actually too bad as survival-based 'Reality TV' shows go. It certainly seems a lot less 'produced' than most and from the footage we have seen so far, it does seem like the participants are genuinely fending for themselves. Mind you, the Caiman incident did seem somew...

Re: "Walking Dead" Cable Series

My guess would be that the place did originally start out as a sort of open sanctuary run by hippie/cult types but of course at some stage, some of the people they took in turned on them. They managed to overcome the attackers but took heavy losses, causing them to do a 180 degree turn on their trus...

I never watched the show much, but I will always respect cody for writing the first survival book I'd read that wasn't just a re-hash of the army manual. Stay classy indeed, i'm sure we'll see more of him. I bet the show wanted him to do something silly and he told them were to stick it. He's a bit...

Re: "Walking Dead" Cable Series

I haven't watched the spoiler video but it seems obvious to me that this series will end more or less how the Woodbury/Prison arc did in the original comic books. They made some major divergences at the end of last season but this is bringing the general plot broadly back in line. The comic book (an...

Well one thing about the WD is the infection is 100%, everyone has it. You only see it when you die. The faster change from bites is due to super infection fever burning the victim up. But it does not take a bite to turn you just death. But ok, they were saying survivors vs zombies. And I have ment...

Rick & Carl finally whip out the rifles and blow away a bunch of Walkers. WHY didn't they do that before they breached the fence? Because in the ZPAW guns are a last resort rather than weapon of first choice. However, they have been really bad at clearing the fence - they should be easily able to s...

Re: Bear Grylls: Excape From Hell

Much better than the usual schtick - mostly because it's about telling/recreating real life stories of survival rather than survival-themed reality TV. Grylls certainly is more entertaining than Mears for the casual viewer, even if no-where near as educational. That's what the producers are typicall...

I carry a Victorinox SwissCard, it's really designed for wallet use.

Re: Why Bear Grylls sucks.

If you approach the BG stuff as 'survival-themed' entertainment, it's very watchable. If you approach it expecting it to teach you useful stuff, it's terrible and potentially dangerous as it encourages people to do some stupid things. I think the issue was that it was initially presented to viewers ...

Re: Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Adventure Kit - REVIEW

I guess that if long term storage wasn't a priority (i.e. charge the pack during the day then dump the power into your devices that evening), you could use a set of 'non-eneloop' type NiMHs as they typically offer slightly higher capacities. I've gone with a Powermonkey Extreme myself but this looks...

or do I need to try to edit the meta data or Exif or something to get the camera to like the pictures?

Not sure about the radios but aside from that, looks like a good idea - the eInk screen is the key as it allows much longer battery life than a regular tablet. If they can ruggedize it properly, it could really be a useful device. A 'common man' alternative to provide some of the functionality would...
