Binns said the company still believes the hacked data were restricted to names, dates of birth, member ID/Social Security numbers, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and employment information such as income data.

Oh, was that all? Good. Here I thought they might have stolen something IMPORTANT. Rolleyes

Until the fucking US starts holding these piece of shit corporations liable for every single dollar of damage these breaches cause, this shit is going to continue and continue and continue ad infinitum. Right now they offer bullshit "credit monitoring" and continue to skimp on every fucking dollar they can when it comes to security.

I'm just hoping when I file this year, someone hasn't beat'n me to it.

I wonder how well their gaming tablet the shield is doing.

Financial reports are available all over the net since nVidia is a publicly traded company. Their mobile division including Shield is doing very well and going by preliminary reports of the new Tegra X1, their next Shield will likely be nothing short of amazing.
And, no, I'm not getting paid to say that and I don't have much interest in mobile gaming either but credit where credit is due. The Tegra X1 looks like it's shaping up to be one bad mofo.

Yeah I read enough crack and battery issues on the current to wait to see how the next Shield looks.

Now with this news, to be anything more than a yawn, it has to have some real power, like as good or better than the Bone and 4, if so, that is somewhat interesting.
Mehh even that what developer is going to invest money and resources to develop for a new console these days?
Isn't that what happened to that android console that was supposed to kill the xbox and playstation?
We'll see what Nvidia comes up with but I doubt it will be anything revolutionary ground breaking, that will change the gaming landscapes forevahh!!

Well there are plenty of Android developers, now they can either have their apps run a lot better on this or take their game to another level because of this, like a plus version. I'm not saying easy success or anything like that or even if I want. But for it to be somewhat exciting it is going to need to be by far the most powerful android hw released.

It is odd that you see jabs (friendly or otherwise) towards consoles when I don't recall console folks shitting on the pc folks.

They used to all the time, then they even realized, "while I do like the console platform, I can't really bitch at the PC'ers anymore because they can outclass me". All the arguments, I think the last one was the couch, have been doable now by the PC. PC'ers don't forget, we were supposed to die about 300 times over the past 20 years.

Now with this news, to be anything more than a yawn, it has to have some real power, like as good or better than the Bone and 4, if so, that is somewhat interesting.

that's what i assumed from yesterday. like i said, miraculous right? i can't imagine how that's even physically possible, especially for the battery. Scope have you opened it up and looked inside the battery compartment?

also: so it wasn't, a dildo, blue? XD

I believe I did a couple years back, I think there was some corrosion in there. But sometimes I go foggy, I sort of don't want to open it now in case of breaking it, I have trust in it now. It really is a neat little talking point to some friends. And just maybe, maybe the sign I asked for!

I wonder if it's directly beneath a power line in the ceiling and the EMF is either charging the battery or the wires within the light. In such a case, moving the light will make it go out.

These are portable, they attach to the ceiling via a sticky magnet on the ceiling, the device itself is a metal shell. It hasn't been on the ceiling for years. I've moved it around the house to various places over the years. But not a bad guess and if I took a pic further out that is an overhang I built to sit a projector on top of. There are two wires in there a Composite and DVI, heavy shielded cable.

Without any furhter delay... The Everlasting Light

This is where it started, a ceiling light for the Theater:

http://i699.photobucket.com/albums/vv354/HorrorScope67/20150225_074623.jpg

This is it besides it's cousin that just doesn't have the same umph. This light has been on for a number of years now, non-stop, powered by a AA battery which seems everlasting:

http://i699.photobucket.com/albums/vv354/HorrorScope67/20150225_074252_1.jpg

In the second photo, which is the everlasting one? The dim one?

The bright one, the other is another that is off.

Okay, just to be clear: you installed these battery powered lights yourself on the ceiling, have never changed the battery, and it has stayed on that bright this entire time for several years?

Right I put up three of these many years back now, since replaced. The other two did what you would expect, after a while change the battery. Somewhere along the line and it has been 4+ years (could be up to 7) this one has stayed lit forever. At first it worked normally, but somewhere the shutoff stopped working while on and it has been on ever since. It stays lit all the time 24/7/365.

In the pic the two to the left are newer models vs the older model to the right, I put that back up for the pic. The Everlasting Light has a special place and I didn't want that specific area lit forever either.

I'll believe it when I see it, but it would be pretty awesome.

I think few devs would ever bother with putting in the work required, though, (even if it's not difficult) since it'd be a pretty rare occurrence where people are using a hybrid system like that.


I think a lot of people have extra vid cards hanging around they'd throw in their system if they thought they could get extra performance from it.

IMO this isn't happening and just more pre O/S, pre DX hype we get all the time. Is it possible? Perhaps. But it won't be supported by the manufactures. I'd just be happy with a better working supported SLI path, simple like the Voodoo 2, nothing you had to program on the game devs end, it just scaled and worked. And I hold zero breaths that even that will happen with like matching hardware. But mixing not only Nvidia with AMd, but say a 970 with a 660, sounds like something that has to be programmed for to make that mismatch work. I hope I'm wrong, but I doubt this one. But for the record I believe the 900% faster!

If you stick to the main in Skyrim, hell Mordor may have more content.

My oldest started playing Skyrim around noon day one, was done with the game by 3 am. Shelved.

I felt there was enough content in Mordor and what you want to see if it tightened up and expanded on in the next release, imo that is all they need to do.

Reminds me of this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centennial_Light


That one is probably a little easier to explain since it has a power source that the filament just hasn't broke.

Where in the Everlasting Light, the battery should have drained eons ago, but walla something still powers the light it emits. Some say it is some chemical reaction going on in the battery chamber, others just think it is proof of a greater power. I actually gravitate towards the latter, I can use all the divine help I can get. All I can say is it isn't any bull, something has happened there.

I'd be more interested in how Windows would handle the two different video device drivers running two separate video cards that are, in turn, trying to access the same display device at the same time.

Wasn't there another promise, I believe for Win7 where each game could have and load it's own video driver for maximum compatibility. I don't think it ever happened, but they touted it prior to release.

Same. They're an evil company too IMO so avoid them like the plaque. I'm trying to get my money back from those fuckers now. Just look at the neg reviews, they're spot on.

Also, why do you think they're evil? Because development seems to have ground to a halt?

No because they like to engage in censorship. They lock and delete posts all the time. I called them on it and got banned from the Steam forum for it. If it was their board I could have cared less, but Steam isn't their fucking property. And there are few things in this world that make me as irate as censorship.

Two questions, the first is good to know stuff... Did you get your rights back for Steam Forums?

Second, reviewing the game and knowing you from your posts, why in the hell do you buy this game? Sure it has a good Overwhelmingly Positive score which is a nice start, but it doesn't take long at all in the forums to know "not ready yet".

They have something here, but they also are creating some problems for themselves, mainly too much going on at once and they can't really deliver well enough with what they have going now. Right now they have 2 or 3 series out and shit they have to have near another 1/2 dozen they've talked up but we haven't seen anything and now even more? These are pretty cool, but I'm not sure how far you can go so quickly without a saturation issue.

it's probably because their first quarter financials are already looking good, so they want to pad their second quarter financials by pushing this a few weeks back.

Someone mentioned Heist hasn't been released. Is this suppose to release for the Sony/MS prior to the PC release? If so perhaps they want it to be exclusive to consoles for a bit longer.

As for people being butt hurt in anyway in this thread, that is how it works here. IMO no game is or should be given special treatment. Obviously a well enough adjusted person will be able to deal with this delay.

When I get home I'll take a pic. It isn't like I can prove it's been on for that long to anyone but my family and perhaps some friends I've shown. I could put it on a 24/7 cam and stream it and then watch the next 5 years as no one tampers with it.

But at least you'll see the miraculous everlasting light, divine it is. I'm a believer!

What get me about a year or so ago, I thought they laid off the team, shared a little knowledge to OR, said some inherent problems not over come, perhaps I may even recall some of the laid off team doing something on kickstarter.
They laid off Jeri Ellsworth, apparently due to office politics and/or personality/culture clash. She got Gabe's permission to continue her AR work as her own project, CastAR, which did have a Kickstarter.

Yep that be it. So they had that plus some other "xR" depts still on-going. Thanks.

I have a few wall lights that are battery powered, they are spotlights for reading.

One won't shut off and when I mean that, I mean ever. The power button does nothing. I'll assume physically removing the batter will do the trick.

But I'm talking like 4 years now it has been on, the others I've replaced the batteries a couple/few times and I shut them off when done, as they'd probably only last a couple days being on non-stop.

However I have this one, not sure how the chemical reaction happened within it, but its a miracle. I now call it the Light that looks over me and is as good a sign as I need that everlasting light does exist.
