Jordan died trying to finish his 'epic' and Martin will probably follow in his footsteps. So pacing...yeah..hmm...not sure I agree with you there.

Precisely why I refuse to start reading the books until either he finishes or dies. If he dies first, I either won't read them, or will wait to see if he left enough notes for someone to finish them up...

This is the point where I drag out my line about "a hobby is a hobby - how much does a new hunting rifle cost? Or a new set of golf clubs?".
Nin hit the nail on the head.

Hmmm, went into my 1.2.4.1 world and couldn't remember most things. Might as well start from scratch to begin with... maybe later I can move some old stuff.

Wasn't there a "limited release" ship they charged $1,200 for? $400 must be a deal! Give me two! (not)

also, it would have to be digital because violent options are impossible. but if you shut down enough infrastructures and backbones and so forth, it would be much more difficult for them to respond to it... regardless of the military aspect, the idea of wiping debts and account records and so forth etc would be the main goal
Thank you, Tyler Durden. You can return to the basement now.

If the problem is electing the same people over and over, how is not voting at all solving the problem? Maybe if everyone who thought that way had gotten up and voted for Ross Perot, Ron Paul or Ralph Nader maybe something would have gotten changed. Don't misunderstand, you have it mostly right. There isn't much difference between the Rs and the Ds. But non-participation would seem to be more like a surrender than anything.

There are no easy answers. Term limits? Sounds good, until you realize that writing laws is complex -- and if the legislature is getting over turned all the time it just means the non-elected staffers will end up being the ones writing the laws. New parties? The system is effectively rigged against it.

I would very much like to be able to jump ahead a couple of hundred years and see how it all turns out...

What doesn't a search for "No Man's Sky" find this article?

Edit: First impression -- poor man's Star Citizen. But that's probably giving SC too much credit. A cross between E:D and Starbound maybe?

So, had I dinner tonight with a fellow gamer (and he's married to one of my sisters) -- asked him what he was playing lately -- blah blah -- then he mentioned a game he said when it came out he might have to buy a PS4 to play it. I had to have him repeat the name of the game a couple of times, "No Man's Sky" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_Man's_Sky

I figured I had just overlooked it here, but if there are any articles on it, I can't find them. Is it really that un-news worthy?

Also, just in case you have never ever bought a CoD game in your entire life, Activision is making the entire collection available as a bundle, just in case you wanted to buy them all in one shot. All of the games, and all of the DLC can be yours for the low, low price of $299.99. Allthumbsup
Move the decimal point to the left one spot and I'll think about it. (I did buy, play, and enjoy CoD and CoD2).

So, you are saying a search at google.com within France should get the same results as google.fr -- but outside France, google.com could have the "forgotten" links?

I guess if you support the law, you'd want it to work that way...

Uh, it seems like it -- from the NYT piece:

*-*-*

Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin, who leads the French data protection authority, has been a vocal campaigner to expand Europe’s rules beyond the 28-member bloc. The region’s privacy officials will meet in Paris next week to discuss a variety of data protection issues, including the right to be forgotten ruling and pending changes to Europe’s privacy legislation.

“For Google, the answer is worldwide,” said Ms. Falque-Pierrotin, when questioned late last year about the scope of the European privacy ruling. “If people have the right to be delisted from search results, then that should happen worldwide.”

Labels in of themselves are not bad. They are necessary. I don't greet a 5 year old and an adult in the same way. The problems arise when those labels used to discriminate "unfairly" against people.

Thanks. Assuming that article is credible, it seems likely the pornography charges are crap. It would help his case significantly if these supposed files could be at least verified as existing. If he did mail thumb drives to someone with those files.. seems to me like he needs to get those out or verified or something. Because right now all he has is a story...
