Amazon Collecting Sales Tax in 3 More States. Thanks HARDOCP.

I thought Amazon was collecting for Minnesota starting last July.....I wonder if they are just ignoring it? I don't know of anyone in Minnesota that is paying any tax from them.....and when it DOES start - I will need to start making a comparison with Walmart and other stores vs Amazon.

It is a pain in the ass if you aren't both sitting at the same machine. I assume they did that on purpose. heeheheh

Lets say....Prez and I want to "Family Share".

Prez would have to be "physically sitting at my computer and login" and then authorize this "device".
I would have to then go "physically sit at his computer and login" and authorize THAT "device".

Then, you would go to settings and set eachother's accounts as acceptable to use eachother's library.

Then both of us would go back to our own machines and re-login.

BOOM.

It is pretty slick and you can get around the "locked" library if you go offline and play a game, then your library is still open for 1 of the 10 people to access it. It is a concurrent license. Only 1 concurrent connection to your library at a time - not all 10.

It is a great thing they are doing for homes with multiple people using multiple computers. There are a few problems with it, but it is pretty amazing.

I'd be real curious what starbounds numbers are, as it's held in for awhile now. Good for them!


Yea....the new Skyrim leaderboard topper?

But I am doing a little better than Prez despite barely playing my games (other than CS and Civ5).

Where are you seeing the "games not played" number?

If you google "what is my steam acconut worth" there are a ton of sites, but the first few I think are the good ones....

Well that all sounds like a groovy, hippy nirvana, Gabe, but how about getting HL3 made and maybe bringing the Steam client into the 21st century and fixing its myriad problems and shortcomings?

I honestly don't think they have anything even close to resembling HL3. It is so far in the past I don't see them doing anything with it. Why would they even bother. The story kind of went off the rails anyway and I lost interest.

heh.

Not bad. I don't mind. I try and at least install and try each one - I know it doesn't catch all data, and there was a time when that data wasn't captured at all - so I am probably around 75%.

Doesn't bother me. Using Family Share with people and once my son is old enough - they won't go to waste!

Think it's expensive? Not at all. Your habits and lifestyle will completely change from spending too much on TV and video games to going outside to free parks, beaches, forests, and other outdoor locations.

Sure. But that doesn't negate the fact that rent prices are ~ 90% higher in LA than in Tulsa, and that prices to buy are about ~ 230% higher. source

(Though I will admit that I was surprised that other than that, the price difference isn't as much as I thought it would be.)

So I'd rather pay 200K for my mortgage here, and live in a house that would cost me $700+K in LA.

Not only that - but I have all of the free stuff here in MN too! 230K mortgage....not only that, but I live in NE Mpls - the best place to live here. Anything you could ever want is just blocks away.

I don't think it was a ddos. I think it was everyone frantically trying to buy/sell/craft globes since this time valve said they were going away.

And valve's front end setup couldn't handle it.

nah, if anything it was DDoS and scripts people were using to buy and sell frantically to make money. There are reports of people making thousands in mere minutes.....

You still have them? People were saying yesterday that they were going to be removed from inventories.


Yes, I posted that msg last night that Steam is jacked, and I couldn't do anything with them (couldn't access Steam).....so when it came up today - couldn't do anything, they locked em all down. That is a THEM issue, not a ME issue.....

I listed all my globes on the market last night, but by the time I woke up, they were all back in my inventory... I could list them again, but they would keep dropping off after a minute or so.

What did you list them for? I listed a few for 15 cents (with steams cut 17 cents) and made like a buck, which allowed me to easily buy the ones I didn't have.

But that was a few days ago, as well. Sounds like everyone dumped theirs?


There was 70,000 of each gobe for sale when the server came back up - so Valve is sticking all of those people with those cards. Me included, as I couldn't buy/sell any as I intended to....wtf.

So let me get this straight....it is now past 1300, so you can no longer buy or sell the globes - but they were down for how many hours? And now you can't do anything with them, and they are probably going to yank all of them? wow. Classy!
Yeah that does suck.
I was expecting Steam to at least expand the sale a few hours due to the issues they've had.
Instead they just ignored it like it never happened.

And it wasn't just the store front that got hit, look at the stats. 8M users to 4M users.
