My cases tend to rust out after a few years, especially the USB ports.

Try tightening the clamps on your water cooling

Or at least wiping down the front after some "alone time".

Uh...no, but a tranny might be able to help you with that.

1. USB Armory is the Swiss army knife of security devices. Nov 20, 2014, 10:06 Burrito of Peace
 
That is simply awesome. The ability to trust any device, anywhere on the planet, simply by using your own secure, encrypted USB key is long overdue. The only downside is if the system itself is locked down in BIOS or EFI to prevent boot to USB.

You don't buy a full sized truck, or by an extension, an SUV if you're worried about gas mileage or can't afford the gas.

Probably need to qualify that statement with "If you are smart..."

The spike in SUV/Truck sales since the gas price drop would indicate that high gas prices was the reason people were not buying SUVs/Trucks.

Or maybe not. It's not uncommon to find massive sales on vehicles during November and December. There's that old adage of correlation is not causation.

Sales of SUVs and trucks have soared since gas dipped below $3/G a month or so ago. Long term thinking is the not the American citizen's forte.

I own a truck and drive it daily to and from work on a 108 mile round trip commute. You don't buy a full sized truck, or by an extension, an SUV if you're worried about gas mileage or can't afford the gas.

I'm trying to think of a game that has had as many patches in so short of a time and I'm coming up empty. Kudos to the developer for continuing to progress the state of the game but every time I open Steam, I know there's going to be an SG2 update queued for download.

Silent Hunter 4 was an abomination. But it was 2007.

But Silent Hunter 4 was one thing 8 years ago. It isn't like every game since has kept doing it.

Every Silent Hunter game in the series since IV has been a total anal rape without lube since 2007. Silent Hunter V still isn't what any reasonable person would call "useable". The sad part is that due to the DRM that Ubisoft crippled it with, it never will be.

Lose your connection? Game crashes. Ubisoft's other games suck down a huge amount of bandwidth from Ubisoft's servers? Game crashes. Oh, you wanted to save your game but Ubisoft's servers don't respond in time? Game crashes, setting you back possibly hours of careful planning, deployment and sunk tonnage.

Ubi's games aren't that interesting to me anymore because of both their hostile actions as a company towards their customers and their yearly title churn. The last game I truly enjoyed from Ubi was Black Flag due to the piracy theme. If they released a game that was solely piratically based without the Assassin's Creed name attached, I'd buy the shit out of it. I think, however, that I am in the minority on that.

This uses Denuvo, so no thanks. I don't care how good it looks. Steam/Origin is DRM enough. There's no goddamned need to decrypt, read/write in to memory and then re-encrypt on the fly. This a game, not a fucking NSA database.

FTA:

"I think virtual desktops are very useful, but then thatís because Iíve been using them for quite a long time. Apple introduced Spaces on Macs with Mac OS Leopard back in 2007, and Linux has had virtual desktops ever since KDE 1.0, rolled out in 1998. Come to think of it, I seem to recall virtual desktops on OS/2 Warp, circa 1996, and on the Amiga 1000 in, believe or not, 1985."

This had me cackling because someone here at work was crowing about how awesome VDs were on Windows 10 and I told them I'd been using that "feature" in Linux for more than decade. The only thing I don't get is why the arbitrary limit of 4? Is that all that Windows can handle?

...steam has single handedly ruined things like level editing and game modification...

Not quite:

Rome II: Total War has over 2000 mods available for it.
Banished has over 400.
Skyrim has close to 30000(!)mods available for it.

If anything, portals like Steam have made it easier to create mods (as developers can now release the toolkits in one location), easier to disseminate mods to a wider range of players and allowed for easier collaboration on mods that have become games in their own right.

I grew up playing PC games starting in the late 80s, through the 90s and all the way through to today. You either have a deep personal grudge against Steam for whatever reason, are looking back in to history with rose colored glasses (WAD files were gigantic pains in the ass to work with until someone reverse engineered them and released the WAD unpacker) or you're just full of shit.


As for ED, meh, I'm not a backer and I didn't trust Braben to deliver on anything that was promised.

You used to be able to skip them via using the menu or top menu buttons but not anymore.

Rips, man. Rips. Put the disc on a shelf after ripping it and never be bothered by physical media or fluff crap ever again.
