Kerbal? Isn't he the guy who had his dog kicked, and now he needs an operation?

Huffington post has an amazing crap-ware video player on their site that when you press pause to silence it (besides it automatically starting) does not actually pause nor silence the damn thing. Blocked the whole player, good riddance.

The problem is that you were reading the Huffington Post.

Yeah, I have no idea how it figures out the host but it seems like it prefers people based on connection quality (upload speed and NAT quality most likely). After getting cable Internet I would almost always be made the host after the original host would leave a game, even in large games, but I was not so lucky with earlier connection types.

Team Mafiya Work with team blips enabled is actually quite enjoyable especially with a decent team and good settings, but it does have some serious bugs that crop up from time to time. I think I might download this again and give it another go tomorrow.

GTA IV uses peer-to-peer matchmaking through GFWL, not dedicated servers, so I don't think that is the case here.

Thats assuming cheaters create a new steam account for each game they buy/play/cheat-on... something that I think is rather unlikely... people are stupid, and cheaters are the definition of stupid.

Cheaters are stupid but they are often very persistent. You would be amazed at what some cheaters will do in order to continue cheating after being banned.

I guess I'm lucky. The one time I've ever needed to call roadside assistance (through MasterCard), they told me it could take an hour for the truck to get there but it only took 15 minutes.

That's for new members only BTW!

Maybe I misread this but existing members get the discount too. I got an email with the code, and I didn't even "Like" their Facebook page to get it.

I'm looking at Japan. Massive loss in the older population, with a serious gap in younger workers required to fill the gap. Nearly 40% of their population will be retiring in the next 10 years. And if I'm going to be getting screwed, I know exactly how I'm going to get screwed and in what way. Plus I don't mind the lifestyle, or the cultural mentality.

Kind of a hijack but oh well...
They also have a very homogeneous population with a long and proud history of isolationism and racism. Even in the face of their demographic pressures they still cannot overcome their fear of immigration. In that way it is basically the complete opposite of Canada. Good luck integrating in that kind of society.

There's too many inconsistencies in this so called considered bill, it'll never pass.

It sounds like you are under the impression that the US legislature considers that a priority. This is incorrect. The fact that this corporate-backed bill is getting fast tracked to the Senate floor while bills that could solve real problems languish in committee should show you where their priorities really lie.

You gave it that long? I deemed it worthless in less than a day.

The only thing that kept me going that long is that I was in a guild with some people in my dorm. If I was on my own I would never have even started to play it.

Drug dealers give first-timers a freebie..this is no different. It's crack no matter how you slice it.

Then I must have immunity because I played it for two weeks and got completely bored with it. Such a boring "game" if you can even call it that.
