Hey Blue, your GameSpot link for Betrayer is really a link to a The Bureau review.

Woops, thanks.

That isn't plagiarism though. A shitty move by a big dev, but not illegal. Next.

Plagiarism is an act, not a crime.

It churns about as much pollution in a day as does driving your 'vette around the block once so I wouldnt worry too much about it

Actually, it churns out as much pollution in an hour as does driving my vette around the block. As long as the block is 25 miles to the side.

my decrepit Corvette


Whoa whoa whoa, when did this happen?!?!



Yeah, I never knew you had a 'Vette Blue!

Sounds like it's a C4 'Vette. Blue I would have just gotten an aftermarket exhaust for the car anyway.

I got it a while back. I definitely mentioned it at least once here, but I'm a little sheepish about it because it may give the impression I'm living high on the hog in a way that would be *completely* inaccurate. I got the car as a bargain because it had almost 90K hard miles on it, and needed lots of help, all of which I've tried to do on the cheap. This included some junk yard parts and gluing the rear window back in (it's actually a C5 convertible). The rear window is loose again (it needs a whole new roof), the rack-and-pinion leaks, the engine has a wrist-pin knock, one of the pulleys is out of line, the driver's seat doesn't adjust properly, and more. But the car still loves to drive and I love to drive it, so here's hoping I can keep her going for another 113K miles.

While I agree in principle to what this article is saying, it's hard to put into practice. Take Blue's, for instance. Does Blue have the time to run through a series of links for each one of dozens of stories he posts to discover the originator? If he spent the time to do that, the site would have fewer than half the stories it has, making it a less enticing destination. I don't want that.

We are occasional perpetrators and frequent victims of this here.

I'm not understanding this comment; does it mean that Blue's posts original content that others link to but don't credit Blue's for? Or does it mean that Blue's credits the wrong site, b/c the story Blue links to credited the wrong site?

Usually I track the sources of stories and offer "here via there" or "here via there via there" as the source where appropriate, but it can be hard to figure out where things originate, and I don't always pick up the right trail. The other side of it is we will be the first to post some news bit, and one of the many sites that doesn't cite its sources picks it up, Then I get to see a bunch of stories on other sites crediting the site that yoinked it from here with the find.

Isn't open yet, but I made a Bluesnews group last year, no one joined. Would be super easy to do it this way.

That seems perfect. I think we should do it that way.

Jokes aside I don't think there are many people who'd feel fine inside a tiny capsule inside a deadly near vacuum with no exit. Also I think it's funny they don't mention what happens in case of structural failures given that too much air would cause the vehicle to de-accelerate with potentially very high G-force.

So yeah, tube travel is coming, but why does it have to be a near vacuum?

Didn't we just have a discussion of all the people who are willing to travel to Mars as a one-way trip? Tiny capsule? Check. No exit? Check. Near vacuum? Check.

The big difference is that here you end up in Hawaii and there you end up on Mars. And you get to come home from Hawaii.

Belittling is a strong word but it's cool if you wanna use it. I'm mainly questioning the biggest snub comment. If you wanna be technical, the biggest snub in hall of fame history is Charles Haley. No other player in NFL history has 5 super bowl rings plus he redefined the defensive end position to a more quick, agile position.

I don't mean to put words in your mouth, you said "let's be real, one of those was pure luck," which I took as pretty dismissive.

If you wanna be technical, the biggest snub in hall of fame history is Charles Haley.

I won't argue that, off the top of my head I would agree, though a good case could be made for Jerry Kramer. That's why I didn't say skipping over Parcells last year was the biggest snub in HoF history, I said it was "one of the biggest."

Just curious but why do you believe Bill Parcells should be a slam dunk hall of fame candidate?

Jivaro covered about everything I would say in reply save for one point.

He did win 2 super bowls but let's be real, one of those was pure luck.

Let's be really real. To get the chance to play in the Super Bowl that season the Giants had to beat the heavily favored 49ers in the title game. That's the backup QB-led Giants versus the Joe Montana-led back-to-back defending Super Bowl champs. On the road.

Then the Giants beat the heavily favored Bills in the Super Bowl. And how did they manage that? By Bill Parcells flat-out out-coaching Marv Levy, and there aren't many who saw that game who would deny it. Out-coaching the opposition in the biggest game of the year? To belittle that as not being a valid argument for him being a Hall of Fame shoe-in is missing the point entirely: It should be the first thing you mention when listing his qualifications.

Its a shame you didnt see bees. Apparently they are dying off by the billions...

Oh I did see bees as well. I know there is a serious concern about colony collapse, but it's not very evident from our yard, as we have honeybees, carpenter bees, and bumblebees along with paper wasps and yellow jackets. I just had never noticed this variety of wasp before, so I wanted to investigate to see how aggressive they are.

Well, well, well. So the MechWarrior "community" is being asked for their input in order to help "fix" the game. How desperate must you be to have a town hall to get ideas?

This would be like the Diablo3 creators holding a town hall on how to fix their game. Answer: you can't. The basic design premise (in the case of Diablo3: RMAH, in the case of MWO: Multi only, microtrans) has limited your ability to make a fun game. Your design is based on balancing fun versus money... and the balance sucks. The only way to fix it is through reducing the money side so that the fun side is larger... and no company on the planet is going to lower the MONEY side (especially when they are already hurting).

I wanted to like MWO... I really did. But what I (and I believe most other MW fans) wanted was a single player game with a good story, and decent multiplayer SECOND! Not a multiplayer only grindfest... Is MWO willing to go that far (the answer is obviously no...)?

If my understanding is correct, no one asked the community for this feedback, the community is asking that their voices be heard.

I don't understand why people even bother reporting Non-GAAP.....just lying to yourself and shareholders.....because if you are a WD Shareholder, you WILL NOT GET 8.53 per share!

I wonder if they could get away with this if they had to spell out GAAP. Multiplying everything by 10 is likewise not a generally accepted accounting principle, so does that mean they could also claim Non-GAAP income of $21 billion?
