Parallel Turn Strategy???

Does anybody know of a computer game that is what I would call "Parallel Strategy"? That is, it's not realtime in the sense that there are discrete turns, but it's not turn based, because plays are not sequential, but played in parallel (that is, all players make their moves in the alloted time for the turn/round). When the time is over for that round, conflict resolution rules happen...

Reference Vocals: Is It Worth it?

I'm doing reference vocals for a couple of team songwriters who have recently been signed under a music DJ who works for a major record label. The tracks are good, these guys know their pop music, however they have no money to offer me at the moment. The only things they can offer me is free studio time, access to their songwriters, some music tracks and connections in getting my music to the right people. When I get paid depends if their boss likes the vocals or if an artist picks up the song. Is this a common tactic among new songwriters when they cannot pay their vocalists? How can I make sure I'm getting the best end of this deal or should I walk away?

Seeking second year rent negotiation tips for Menlo Park CA

I'm looking for help negotiating my second year lease renewal monthly rate. How should I hold myself during the negotiation? What should or shouldn't I say? Should I actually go through the trouble of negotiating a lease with an apartment complex across the street, or is it sufficient to quote their price from the advertisement? Also, for a current rent of $1999 and a quote for next year at $2299 what chance is there that I can negotiate $0 increase, $100 increase, $150 increase, etc. [more inside]

How can I fix my driveway gate so my dog cannot escape under it?

Our driveway is on a very small incline. At the bottom of the driveway, which exits onto the street, is a gate attached to our fence. The gate swings inwards, so when the gate is closed, there is a small gap at the bottom to accommodate the incline when it's fully open. Our dog can escape out of this gap. Other than plugging it with a long piece of scrap wood while we're out with him, how can we solve this problem? [more inside]

NewDogOwnerFilter: Is it worth the fight?

I adopted an awesome dog from the local Humane Society. The dog is a one year old German Shepherd who is very well behaved (doesn't chew, rarely barks, never steals even when freshly cooked cheeseburgers are left unattended, etc) and already knows basic commands like "sit" and "come" and "heel." The only problem is the "heel" - he was obviously trained to heel to the left and I really want him to heel to my right. The question: is it worth the effort to retrain him and if so how do I accomplish this? More details and some photos below the fold. [more inside]

Should I up my SSRI dose or try a different brand?
I've been taking Fluoxetine 20mg for about sixteen months for my anxiety. It's helped a lot in terms of curbing panic attacks and making me less moody, short-tempered and irritable – a huge plus when you're living with someone. My OCD is also much better than pre-Fluox. CBT has also gone a long way in helping me manage the anxiety. [more inside]
