It might sound silly, but is there anything blocking the lenses?

comment Why is the Team Fortress 2 install so huge?
The graphics are simplistic? The graphics for Pac-Man are simplistic, TF2 does not have simplistic graphics.

comment How do I spawn wolves?
Please improve your question. It's not even a question. It's a demand. I'm not sure many people respond well to demands.

comment Is fury a negative status effect?
Briankb, you're thinking of berserk. Berserk status causes the affected character to attack as soon as their time bar is full, until the status is removed. Fury, as the answer says, decreases the affected character's accuracy, causing them to miss and as far as I know, causes the player to receive more damage when they are hit - which in turn causes the limit meter to rise faster than normal.

comment How large a hole will rain fill with source blocks?
Notch mentioned this on twitter, but only as a passing thought. I'm not convinced it was actually implemented.

comment How Many Different Ways Can I Kill Raptors?
They look less like Raptors and more like Archaeopteryx to me. Albeit a lot larger. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archaeopteryx - Saying that, Archaeopteryx Safari doesn't really roll off the tongue.

comment Can I play and fully enjoy Starcraft 2 using a Touchpad and not a Mouse?
I was thinking maybe something along the lines of a three finger drag movement for moving the map around, rather than trying to move the cursor to the edges of the screen, or using the keyboard or trying to click-drag on the minimap, or different combinations of swipes, 2, 3 or 4 finger to select different unit groups etc.

comment Syncing Xbox Wireless Controller w/ Mac
I could be wrong, but I believe the branded wireless gaming receiver is just a disguised bluetooth receiver. It would depends on the software/driver for the controller to make it work with the Mac's current Bluetooth receiver and/or stack. The questioner mentioned that it seemed to sync correctly, though, implying that either A) they have the receiver, B) the software works with the current bluetooth stack or C) is a 3rd party original Xbox controller with a differently handled wireless mechanism.

comment What is the average rate at which sufficiently lit grass spreads in a line?
Running it overnight implies you're not watching it. How could you measure it if you don't watch it?

Thanks! The order came from the website, so I was acting on misinformation!

comment Where do Minecraft texture packs go on OS X?
This worked for me. However, with the update, I suspect that Brant's answer would be the place to put them in the future. It's possible that this method may go away in favour of the updated method.

comment Is it possible to jungle with tryndamere without smite?
+1 for the team game comment. One of the things that really annoys me is when players spend the entire game solo'ing the jungle because they "just need a few more levels". It's a constant catch up problem.
