Happy to see that they are still funded.
If only more games could get this type of backing.

Unfortunately they have blown most of that wad and are only at Alpha 2.0... do the math.

Source please.

Sure... The Escapist Article... and I pretty much believe a majority of it.

Star Citizen Employees Speak Out on Project Woes - Update 2

"They've spent $82 million dollars, and what is there to show for that? There's a demo, a racing demo, a single first person shooter level, and an area where you can walk around. For $82 million," CS2 stated. Most of the sources feel this is the reason for continued fundraising through the website - to "extend the dream" for as long as possible. They also feel this is the motivation behind the inflated pricing on digital products that, at this moment, allegedly don't exist.

Doesn't really matter even if it were true. We all know they have some skeleton crew working on HL3 for years now. But without it being a priority for the company even its existence doesn't guarantee it'll ever see the light of day.

Didn't you know? Gabe Hired George Broussard as the Lead Designer right after 3DRealms sold DNF.

That's better. However he should still be going to prison at 18 IMO. Now these are the kinds of sentences that will act as a deterrent.

These aren't your typical in-town juvenile facilities (like a local adult sheriff / police jail would be)... these are full time prisons/camps for hard core juvenile criminals.

So, don't worry... Bubbas exist in the Juvy Prisons too.

Dated in terms of functionality. Although also dated in terms of look, but as you point out whether that is bad or good is entirely subjective.

Ah... gotchya.

Well... on the consumer / home front I don't see all that much added value. On the Enterprise front... Server 2016 has some awesome features, and there is some value in Windows 10 married up with that platform.

Other than faster booting which came in Windows 8 and DX12, what exactly do you find so dated about Windows 7 in comparison? About the only thing I can think of is that it doesn't run the latest Windows Management Framework / Powershell versions... but again that's more of an enterprise thing. Also, features like multiple desktops can be downloaded for free for Windows 7... so just because some of that is built-in to 10 doesn't really make 7 "dated", IMO.

I guess that blocking access to e-mail if you run an adblocker is working out real well for them.

but pretending that Windows 7 is anything but horribly dated at this point is kind of laughable.

Huh?

It is way better looking than the "latest UI fad" of the "flat look".

But that is just personal preference... you can't really say one looks more dated than the other... just one is outright uglier.

It would be really cool if they could reach the 5.5 millions but I strongly doubt that is going to happen.

I don't know... I've seen a lot of kickstarters get a huge chunk of their funding in the last 24-48 hours.

Of course that was back when the first few Kickstarter games took off.

We'll see.

I have a 2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid SE and it's definitely not ugly. Looks the same as the regular Fusions in fact and has all the bells and whistles; leather seats, keyless entry, remote start, heated seats, awesome stock stereo w/ SiriusXM capability. Bought it in May and have used A/C almost every month (Florida) except the last few weeks and mileage is still 41+ mpg so far. Great car and I have no regrets.

Sedans aren't my cup o' tea... so I consider those... well... not as ugly as the Prius. LOL Being into coupes, I might go for a hybrid Mustang, though.

BMW i8... lovely car... just don't have that kind of cash.

I'll be interested when they can make a hybrid F150 that gets 30+ MPG and still holds its near (usually over) 400 hp/torque numbers.

Actually, electric motors have way more torque... but towing or doing something heavy-duty would drain the battery way too fast.

A Dodge RAM eco-diesel might be your ticket... and if the word goes kaflooey, you can always run it on scrounged fry oil.

My major beef, aside from range and price, is that any "somewhat" reasonably priced hybrid is butt fuckin ugly... especially the Prius. The recently shown Toyota C-HR is the first hybrid that I would even consider... so it would depend on the price after they go into production next year. In the meantime I'm still hunting for an anti-prius Hellcat.

The problem with Amazon is half their shit they charge you for. On my PC It's a bit easier to weed through the prime / non prime movies to watch but on my tv the app seems to mix them in a majority of the time.

More than half.... and mostly what is free on Prime is crap.

I'll say this though... we have gotten way more than $100 worth of shipping... especially some of the larger Items we have bought blew that away in 1 shot.

We only watch stuff on prime is if it is decent and doesn't happen to be on Netflix.

There is much stupidity on both sides of the asile, whether they are libtards or conservetards.

And no... I'm not a republican... I'm proudly non-partisan because both parties suck equally, and I try to vote for the (lesser of two evils) person... not the party line.

Unfortunately Spybot Anti-Beacon falls woefully short.

The only real way to guarantee that Windows doesn't phone home is to uninstall hidden system packages with DISM or Install_WIM_Tweak.

All the tools online are great for setting up turning off most of the stuff in one little gui... but you need to take the extra steps to get rid if it all.

As for Windows 7... uninstall and hide all the telemetry updates... and Spybot Anti-Beacon is good for the rest.

Well.... I'm happy to report that this does not happen on the Enterprise LTS version... just a cumulative update downloads.

Also none of the "normally can't uninstall system packages" that I uninstalled (Like Cortana, OneDrive, Feedback, Telemetry, XBox, etc. did not come back.

So, Score some extra points for the Enterprise LTS version!

I'm still going to wait for a few more major updates before I run Win 10 at home.
