Wasn't the original an incredibly buggy mess with really, really poor voice work by some Russian team?

Likely people running small scale ISP's or hosting services from their FIOS line, which I gotta admit is a kinda dickish move.

Why? While I do not have FIOS, my contract specifically states "unlimited usage". Don't offer it if you are unable or unwilling to provide it. Doesn't seem like a dickish move to me to legitimately use a service you are paying for.

Nope, System Center tells no lies. Also, I never said my data transfer was for singular home user.

It's ~50TB for August. I have a 200TB private cloud that I run out of the house (but on a fiber connection) and the users that have access are digital packrats. Most people will be once they're free of the limitations of local, on-system disk access. My heaviest user generally shuffles about 12TB/month and my lightest user does about 2TB/month. Hell, most people won't even de-dupe their own data because they want backups of backups of backups of files...even if what they're uploading to has a multipath backup solution in place. That 4GB 1080p video file you shot of you fucking your girlfriend? That becomes 20GB, by itself, once you copy all the directories you forgot you hid copies in.

Also, 50TB/month is really not that hard of a number to hit if you're doing full and incremental replication over to colocated backups, have multiple users acquiring digital media and also running several server VM instances of popular games and applications. We're basically getting to the point that it is financially sensible to return to the old server/thin client model with real-time sharing even for a group of "home" users who are willing to share the cost equally.

The whole user to ISP, single point of connection, model is so incredibly dated and frought with problems that users, especially in the US, have been conditioned to just accept. There are certainly better ways to access and use data streams and those FIOS users have probably figured that out and started implementing it.

There's a reason cable providers are shitting their pants about the rollout of fiber to the home. It's changing the very fabric of data transmission the world over.

You guys must exist in a very data sparse environment. My monthly traffic is ~50TB a month.

I would have been much more interested had the player been able to play from the Japanese or German perspective.

News Comments > Dragon Age: Inquisition Trailer

Having recently played DA:O, DA:O:A and DA2, I have to say that...I liked DA2's story a whole lot more. DA:O, while epic in scale, was actually really generic for me. It felt like a knockoff of the old Dragonlance books I read when I was a kid. Takhisis = Archdemon and Draconians = Darkspawn.

DA2, by being more tightly focused on the Hawke family and a smaller cast of characters, allowed them to have more in-depth lore and realism. The constant banter between Isabella and Varric alone was deeper than a lot of the "conversations" I had with characters in the first one.

I'm looking forward to Inquisition and I am glad to see DA evolving.

So... You want a browser that grinds your system to a halt by spending all its time and power on encrypting and decrypting everything and anything?


What bullshit is this? Even at 512/4096 encryption, only half of a core is busy doing encryption and decryption. Maybe upgrading from a single core Celeron or Pentium D is something you should consider.

Blue, you have a typo. "On the heals of all this" should be "On the heels of all this".

Echo outdoor power tools FTW, Blue.

My little SRM-210 trimmer has been flawless and maintenance free for close to ten years now. I can get two acres done in about an hour and a half with those three metal blade heads.

The real problem for world hunger is overpopulation, and that cannot be helped with money alone.

That's not entirely true. Money can buy a lot of bullets and bombs that would help, ah, "thin the herd" until sustainable population levels could be achieved.

Sure do! Earlier this week. Last week. The week before that. Two weeks ago. Rinse and repeat.

For half of the world, those aren't mutually exclusive you know.

Yeah, but only for those living in the upsidedown bit. Nobody pays attention to them, anyway.

I think the trend lately is "Hey, let's make something pretty with the $50 dollars we have and then have people buy in to an 'alpha' so that we get startup capital instead of having to have a real business plan."

That was one of the saddest things I've ever seen. Major Sham Wow should have just screamed at the end "PLEASE! PLEASE BUY THIS! WE LOVE YOU!"

It just oozed desperation.

As long as you can customize the ship enough and in different ways, I don't mind that. Though I know it probably won't be like what you can do in one of the free-form space sims I did play a ton and love, Darkstar One, where you collect alien artifacts that make your ship more powerful as it evolves into different forms. That game was so under-rated IMO...

Starforce killed that game. It was released at the height of the Starforce backlash.

Cutter. Cutter! CUTTER!!!!

New X-Rebirth Footage!

IT'S ALSO OUT ON NOVEMBER 15TH! HOLY FUCKING FUCK!!!!! I need to find some Nutella to cover myself in!!

How the actual fuck did I miss that? I think...I think I need to go change my shorts. That footage is awesome!

As for the requested feedback:

1. Stating an opinion about why you think someone is disagreeable is ok. Ad hominem attacks are not.

2. Ditch the screenshots. It really breaks the flow on mobiles and decreased the navigability of the site. I tend to read BN far more on my phone than I do on my PC.

I'm not entirely sure it is useless, eRe4s3r.

When you use TOR with several other anonymizing technologies, I think you do a much better job of hiding yourself than simply using any single method by itself.
