Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
A good way to calm an uncalmable baby is to take them for a ride in the car*
*may not work for all babies, as with all baby-related advice
Also - take them between rooms. Changes in environment can "reset" them. I abused this pretty early with our son - a couple of room switches, then back to the bedroom and he was like "Hey, this is where I go to sleep!"
I think the first thing is that it's ok to feel slightly depressed and lonely.
You're in a new place! With none of the people you know! Crap!
As you have kids, I'd just start with other parents that seem nice, as some are likely in a similar place around their friend group being changed due to kids.
Also understand it takes longer than 4 months to adapt and thrive, so don't beat yourself up about it. Find things to enjoy about the new place and most importantly - try to get out of the house. You won't meet anyone new there (or if you do, you should be very very concerned with your home security).
So it looks like our TV is being replaced. We had the panel replaced in August and it's burned in again.
Plasma screens seem to not be available anymore, and I don't know that we would want one anyway that isn't a Panasonic. Is the Visio that people seem to like about the best we're going to get in the sub $1k range?
Vizio M series seems to be the undisputed king right now. You can get a 55" C3 (latest iteration) for under a grand. 4k, local dimming, great set overall apparently (we're likely picking up one this Christmas)
