yeah, one has nothing to do with the other, and it's such a patently unrelated example it's a little insulting. his argument boils down to 'forks kill people, so i should legally be allowed to own sunglasses'.

individual ownership CAN be responsible, i agree, but as i've learned many a time, individual examples cannot prove or disprove a rule. the sad reality is that as a society, we've proven we're not responsible enough to own guns. if the lone idea that both sides can agree on is to save lives, then jdreyer's rational statistical analysis is the overriding evidence. The only conclusion that can be drawn from all our national gun-related statistics is that if you take the guns away, far fewer people will die or be injured than with our current gun-owning status quo.

Alien Today on Blue's News kids react to 1984 gaming technology.

Hopefully we're all fortunate enough to be around another 30 years to look back on this moment in time with the same sense of bemusement - "did we really think that technology was the bee's knees?"


i bet OG elite could literally be played on a ti-85.

I'm glad these daily stories about our ISP oligarchy are getting some press. The blatant greed and lack of competition stays in the front of people's minds.

and yet as long as the news sticks to our enthusiast sites, i don't think either the customer base or the offenders themselves will know or care. it needs to be covered and championed by the large networks to gain any traction. we've known about this for a long time but nothing's happened because we are the 0.1% of their customer base that gets news from somewhere other than major news.

also, DAI is a ridiculously expansive game.

I'm hearing 80+ hours...how many have you logged?


20something at the moment i mentioned above, and that unlocked like 20 new quest locations on the world map. i'm sure most of them aren't as big as the hinterlands, but even if 1/4 are, 80 hrs is nowhere near enough time. i'll be surprised if i finish this in under 100 hrs.

also, DAI is a ridiculously expansive game. i thought i was getting near the end when i closed the hole in the sky but goddamn, that's barely scratching the surface! they put so much content into it, it's almost insane. i'm pretty OCD about my completionism, but i might ahve to let it go in this case or i'll never finish in any reasonable amount of time. also the romance options are terrible. how is leliana not an option? she's like the only likable female in the game. sera's annoying as fuck, the black chick is pro slavery, and cassandra is just a cast iron bitch. she's likable in her softer moments, but then the fist of the inquisition comes out and she's about as appealing as a kick in the nuts.

good god tapeworms in the brain! fuck that for all eternity!

on a somewhat related note, i was reading about richard the third, how they recently found his body and how there was a pile of old ringworm eggs where his guts would have been. apparently they'll try to exit the host if he suffers trauma, so when he died of several blade hacks (notably a halberd to the braincase), it's likely his orifices suddenly spewed ringworms. gross huh? =DDD

While I'm no fortune teller, I'm guessing some countries will break from the EU eventually. People want their nation's sovereignty back, so their nations aren't looted and debt riddled from austerity measures of the EU Elite, the IMF, and told what to do by NATO and Washington. Some leaders are also waking up realizing that they are basically vassals to Washington, especially when some EU Corporations said "Fuck off" to Washington when they were told to raise sanctions against Russia. There were also mass protests going on in Brussels, some of the biggest ever seen in that country since WW2. The breaking point is also approaching in Italy as well.

the UK just had to cough up something like 8 billion euros for what was essentially a federal tax to the EU. the stupid part is that their burden went up because of their ability to not fuck up their economy whilst the beggars of europe - greece, portugal, spain, etc - had theirs lessened because they ruined their economies. i know that makes sense in some arcane mastery level economic voodoo kinda way, but damn if that doesn't drive the righteous in me nuts, and that would be a good starting point for the UK to break away.

i don't even see where the money goes. each country is still responsible for its own defense and internal welfare as far as i know. that's a lot of money for administrative costs.

I'd just like to see the zones transition into each other organically like they do in WoW.

WoW doesn't look like this though. It would be cool but its not technically feasible yet in any engine I've seen save for maybe The Witcher 3 but I guess we'll see.

an elf rogue twohander? i don't know what's going on with your character haha.

man i'm 20 hrs in and i've barely left the hinterlands. although i do like that the zones aren't custom tailored to specific level ranges. and omg that first dragon. classic RPG WTF moment. couldn't even get close enough to check his level before he nearly wiped my group with a single fireball. but the baby dragons were lvl 12 which means i'm not fighting him for a while yet. so lovely the game isn't levelling with you.

Time to retire my Antec 900 after many years of admirable (if dusty) service. The winner is... the CM Storm Stryker!

prof your case died? how does that even happen? first case from my first ever self build back in 1997 lasted me 14 years. and only cuz it just got too embarrassingly ugly to keep using.

My cases tend to rust out after a few years, especially the USB ports. But, yeah, I shelled out for a more expensive one this time, and expect it to last.

yeah i finally shelled out for a coolermaster haf 922 case myself. i'm pretty sure when i'm not looking it does deep penetration missions into enemy airspace for the air force, and has a radar cross section equivalent to a small bird. also a pair of 200mm fans in push-pull config =D

wow, a clunker that died at 100,000 miles? that's pretty bad in this day and age, even for american cars. i've only ever owned japanese cars, and they've all lasted me at least 100,000 miles before i sold them. my infiniti almost got to 220,000.

i just went to fry's and bought this corsair aluminum based textured mat that's pretty awesome, though it's so big i had to place it lengthwise. tracking errors completely gone now; surprising how a used mat can cause a mouse sensor to fuck up.

That would be similar to the Razer Manticor, yeah. They're very nice pads. I use the MM200 primarily as I said, but I like small pads. Metal pads can wear your mouse down and can be noisy though. I actually buy packs of teflon mouse skates from a vendor in China every few years (a few dozen mice worth each time).

yeah turns out it's the mm600, their top of the line mat. it has a metal core, but the surface is actually textured plastic of some kind. fantastic quality mat, though i would love it if they made a smaller version.

also figured out it wasn't my mats that were causing the tracking errors. there was a tiny hair that was stuck to one of the skates that would slide in front of the sensor if i moved it a specific way XD. just threw away some quality mats cuzzof that fucker. oh well, everglide you were great, but, too worn down and rough.

anybody have a recommendation for a good mouse mat? the 3m one i was using suddenly started causing tracking errors. i switched to an old one and it completely went away. i know, i have no idea either.

I have a half dozen gaming pads or so and the choice comes down to your personal style. I tend to wear most of them out very quick, the only ones that don't wear out are the high-end metal/glass ones (manticor comes to mind), but don't confuse that with durability.

So, basically, you have: fractal type (devastator, scarab), aluminum/metal type (pro, manticor), hard plastic (ratpadz), cloth (goliathus, generic), or glass. These all come in varying sizes, too. I'm a high DPI gamer who likes a tight playing space so I use the Corsair Vengeance MM200 Compact (not Standard). When I play with slower DPI and/or need more space I prefer the Razer Scarab. I only use metal for machines I use for design and production tasks, mainly because the Razer Pro was badass for that back in the day. They are very loud. Glass is similar to metal. I only use cloth for very low DPI mice or gaming, although the best large pads are also cloth (goliathus). I like hard plastic for mobility - if I'm tight on space but want a rugged pad (although the ratpadz is a classic gaming mouse pad).

i refuse to touch cloth pads. they soak up dirt and crap like a fat kid walking farther than ten steps.

Ooc, did bioware implement some type of starting checklist section, where previous game players can make their past choices known before the game starts? Iirc, bioware abandoned using previous saves from past games, since they were using a different engine, though this could all be from a dream. Plotting

have you been living under a rock? =D look up dragon age keep. you can even get to it from an ingame link, though i don't recall where it is exactly off the top of my head.

Bad news, Creston. Leliana is NOT a romance option. Just read it. Thought you might want to know... I feel like I need to go get drunk now.

Well if you can follow her up a ladder, good enough for me.

still a better love story than twilight XD
