It was a sad day when Popcap was bought by EA. It took a while for the ax to fall, but fall it has.

Yep. I know they probably got a nice paydayfor being acquired by EA, but it marked the end of an exciting developer.

The payday was for the three Popcap owners. I don't think the devs ever saw a penny of that.

- Buy developer that previously made MORE than enough money to keep everyone happily and gainfully employed.

- Fire staff after first game, no matter how succesful.

- (forthcoming): Rename studio to "EA Shitsville."

- (forthcoming): Wreck and destroy studio completely, then close it.


So far they're well on the path to being Yet Another EA Casualty. (YAEAC?)

Your desired solution still sounds terribly convoluted. Here are the two easiest options:

1) Get a hybrid HD/SSD.

...

247) Install games on the HD. Assign it a drive letter in Windows. Turn off PC, yank out HD, install SSD, assign it the same driver letter as the HD had and make sure the data is synchronized. Steam/whatever knows the game is installed on E:, and since the data is still there, it'll work.

But really, just get a hybrid.

Speaking of Bobby, I'm still puzzled by his acting role in Moneyball. He came on and I'm like "Is that? Noooo...fuck, it is!"


Somebody must have owed him money.

Completely off subject, but I'm either an idiot, or just using the wrong words in google to find this...I'm trying to use an SSD for game caching, but not where software determines what to copy to the drive. I want to be able to select entire folders, and have those be cached, so I can put an entire open-world game on the drive, or any game that tends to stream its level data. Normal caching routines would take a LOT of playtime to get all of a game like that cached.
Really, it should be pretty simple. Data being READ would come off the SSD, anything being written goes to the HDD and then copied by the software back to the SSD for later reading. Does this software exist?

I don't know, seems pretty tricky, but I may have a better solution: Just install the game on the SSD. I mean, why on earth do you want it to be written to an HD first and THEN copied to an SSD? What kind of benefit does that bring, exactly?

Well said, sir. It will be 72 F today. This weekend we are looking at the upper 70s and low 80s. A great time for some beach cliff hiking.

I think I may have mentioned before that you can be a truly unpleasant fellow.

Must be nice to consider if it's worth it or not. Fucking Amazon here is all second banana shit. I don't understand how I can get free shipping from Honk Kong all the time but have to pay through the nose for US companies to ship something when many of them are right across the border!

It's because you're Canadian, and nobody here likes you guys.

Amazon uses USPS these days along with UPS and you cannot tell Amazon "never use USPS with my prime orders." I know because I asked.

Every time it's late, bitch about it. Like I said (and someone else said too), you'll get a $10 credit easy.

At least they fixed it quickly, but this is just the international customers, right? When does the US version go live again?

...huh? It's already live. As far as I know, it's never not been live. Had a couple hiccups that I fixed by just trying again.

Oh, I thought people playing were just the peeps that had unlocked it through a Hong Kong VPN or something. My bad.

Game of Thrones team, you may want to let George RR Martin know that he needs to write more then.

Was just reading about that the other day.


Heh cool. I was half expecting the TV shows guys to have to go "Yeah,uhhh... season 6 is on hold until... well... 2019 probably?"


But this doesn't mean that Martin is giving up quite yet, and is hopeful that he will be the first one to tell his story. "I can give them the broad strokes of what I intend to write, but the details aren't there yet. I'm hopeful that I can not let them catch up with me."

Self-denial is always a good trait to have as a writer.

And once again, the show's creators insist they want the show to end in seven or eight years. Said Weiss, "It doesn't just keep on going because it can. I think the desire to milk more out of it is what would eventually kill it, if we gave in to that."

Someone may want to show George that quote.

Isn't this game heavily peer to peer or at least client side determines events. That would go a long way of explaining cheating.

Don't think so, but it's possible.

I read some where that the beta had five tabs, but Blizzard reduced it to three as a "performance enhancement". Supposedly the five tabs were using up too many resources -- which sounds like total bunk. Don't know if they actually said it, if they did and it's true it sounds like a really bad design problem.

I'm sure the 20 bucks in storage and back-up costs they saved with that decision made Bobby Kotick hard as a fucking rock.

Of course you also get the USPS delivery guy who rolls down the window of his car and throws your boxes at your house - like I saw our delivery guy doing.

Complain about it. Get the jackass fired.
