With the release of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Activison hopes to avoid the pitfalls of its predecessor Call of Duty Black Ops and aggravating the fan base by delivering a buggy game. For those of you who remember last year's launch of Black Ops will probably recall how aggravating the first few weeks were after its release. It Ops was full of bugs and glitches and while Treyarch was hard at work trying to resolve them, it still took weeks to months for the major issues to get resolved.
Bugs are a part of virtually every video game and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 will be no exception to this fact. But what can you do if you happen to encounter a Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Bug or problem that you can't seem to resolve on your own?
The official Call of Duty Forums contains platform specific and technical support forums that contain various discussions surrounding Modern Warfare 3 bugs and issues that people are experiencing. As of this writing there appears to be quite a few issues surrounding the Call of Duty Elite service as it struggles with the high demand. Infinity Ward has not posted information regarding bug fixes/patches, bug reporting or known issues but the game's Creative Strategist Robert Bowling (@fourzerotwo) has made a few tweets in regards to both Modern Warfare 3 online issues and Call of Duty Elite problems:
"All Call of Duty ELITE questions, feedback, or problems should be directed to @CallOfDutyElite team at Beachhead Studios."
"Thanks for all the awesome messages about #MW3. Remember, if you run into ANY problems online, tweet me. Include #Xbox360 #PS3 or #PC in it."
That being said I'm not certain how much attention your message may get depending on the specifics of your issue. So here's you're chance to tell us about any bugs or problems you have been experiencing with the game or Elite, hopefully someone else may have encountered the same issue and has a solution.
I pre-ordered MW3 and it came in today, but it wont let me play online. When I press Play Online in the Multiplayer menu, it just says Connecting to Online Services for a while (2-3 minutes) then just says Error: The Modern Warfare 3 server is not available at this time or something along those lines. I think this has something to do with me not being able to connect to the MW2 server unless I put COD4 in first. I know, its weird. I don't know if I got hacked at some point and it makes ths happen, or something about my PS3 just doesn't want to connect to the MW2 or MW3 servers, and sometimes not even the COD4 server.
Sorry if you're confused, I just want to know what's wrong. Should I ask Infinity Ward?
Taking into account an election result which shows that most Turks do not care if their government is corrupt, the Turkish Prime Minister simply slammed a constitutional court ruling which lifted a ban on Twitter. While he is currently purging the state of anyone who disagrees with him, the constitutional court may find itself on his list as well.
Prime Minister claimed that the court should have rejected a request to restore access to the micro-blogging website. He was cited in the news before departing on a trip to Azerbaijan that although the government did comply with the ruling, he didn’t respect it.
Apparently, Twitter’s appeal should have been rejected on procedural grounds. We remind that access to Twitter was blocked last month in the run-up to national elections, but the country’s telecoms authority had to lift the 2-week-old ban after the court ruled the block breached freedom of speech.
Turkish Prime Minister wanted the service offline so that opposition groups would stop using it in order to point out a corruption scandal that involved both Prime Minister and his ministers. The government had managed to silence the press, but couldn’t stop people chatting about it online.
Unfortunately, his electoral base is in the less well-connected poorer regions of the country, and his voters didn’t actually care about corruption or whatever, so Prime Minister did well in the elections.
Ironically enough, that means that all the politician has to do to become incredibly popular is be nicer to the well educated parts of country and allow more free speech. Perhaps, for Turkey this way is “too easy”.
Unless we are eligible for an excellent employer-sponsored group health insurance package, health insurance can sometimes be anything but affordable. When this is the case, many of us opt not to purchase health insurance for ourselves. We rationalize not purchasing health insurance by telling ourselves there are mouths to feed, bodies to clothe, and other bills to be paid.
Denying ourselves health insurance is not wise; however, denying our kids health insurance is even worse. Kids' health needs even more attention than our health. For example, kids need immunizations to help them ward off infections and diseases and grow healthy and strong. Kids need special attention to help them learn to practice good dental care habits and nutritional ways of life. Plus, a bout of the flu, which usually means lots of rest and chicken soup for adults, could be much more serious for kids.
The best option is to contact our state's department of insurance. Many states in America provide at least one kind of state-sponsored health care program for individuals who can't otherwise find affordable health insurance. Even better news is that most states in America provide kid-specific state-sponsored health care programs for kids with parents who can't otherwise find affordable health insurance for them.
Health care provided by state-sponsored affordable health insurance for kids includes all or any combination of the following: regular check-ups and hospital visits, immunizations, X-rays, lab work, prescription medications, and even dental care.
There may be days when obtaining affordable health insurance for yourself seems impossible, but finding kids affordable health insurance is always possible. Just pick up the phone and call your state's department of insurance. Or, check their Web sites for more information. Find affordable health insurance for your kids; make sure they grow up safe, healthy, and happy.
I'm sure you're aware that there is a national debate going on about how to make health insurance more affordable here in Alabama as well as elsewhere in the country. Unfortunately that same debate has been going on for decades, and until there is some relief on a national scale it is up to each of us individually to do whatever we can to get affordable health insurance in Alabama.
Alabama is a leader in the country when it comes to certain types of state-sponsored low-cost health insurance for kids, teens, college students, pregnant women and other groups. You may be surprised what's available and what you or members of your family may qualify for.
For the rest of us the search for affordable health insurance in Alabama goes on. Fortunately there actually are several steps the average person can take to keep the cost of health care insurance affordable.
If your employer doesn't offer group health insurance that doesn't mean you're out of luck for getting a group rate. Make of list of all the clubs, groups or associations that you belong to. A surprising number offer group health insurance to their members. Ask your friends if they belong to any groups or clubs or organizations that offer members group health insurance. Join whatever group you need to in order to get affordable health insurance.
If you run a home-based business, even if your only employee is your spouse, ask your insurance agent if there is any way you can qualify for a group health plan.
If you smoke or use chew or any other tobacco product, you need to stop if you're serious about finding affordable health insurance. Tobacco users pay more for health insurance -period.
Unfortunately the same is true about weight. People who are overweight pay more for health insurance. However, the good news is that losing even just a few pounds could put you in a lower weight category and save you hundreds of dollars a year.
Can you afford to increase your co-payment? Many people have a co-payment - that is, cash they pay to the doctor's office each time they make a visit - of 20% to 25%. If you can afford to increase your co-pay to 50% it will save you considerably on your monthly premium. This is an especially good idea for people who do not see their doctor on a regular basis.
How much of a deductible can you afford? Again, you should consider the answer to this question carefully and weigh your decision because the amount you choose represents cash you will have to come up with each year to pay for your own medical treatment before your insurance company will even begin to kick in.
Now find at least 3 of the websites that permit you to compare prices for health insurance from different insurance companies here in Alabama. Make sure that you fill out the form the same way at all three websites so that your comparisons are valid, and then simply choose the company with the lowest price.
That's all there is to it. You have now found the most affordable health insurance in Alabama and you can rest easy knowing that you will be saving as much money as possible each month while still getting the medical protection that you and your family need.
