...let's focus on Christianity and how all those people who follow it today are ignorant clowns...

Given how many claim they are Christians and the actual percentage of people who really DO try to be like Yeshua bin Yosef of Nazareth, I'd say a large majority are ignorant clowns.

Wow, hate speech much?

Hate speech? Seriously? I guess the bar must be rolling around on the ground these days...

Only from people who are too frightened and incapable of rationally and logically discussing the pros and cons of any topic. It's now de rigueur to whine and cry "hate speech" or "racism" when you don't like what someone says but can't effectively and intelligently present a counter argument.

That's it... someone couldn't come up with an effective retort for the compellingly stated argument of calling someone a "religious nut"?

I didn't realize bigotry needed a more direct counterargument than being called out.

Simply identifying a problem doesn't resolve the problem itself, Blue. If that were the case, the Civil Rights Movement of the 60s would never have needed to occur. We'd have all been legally equal since 1865 when the 54th Regiment Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry was disbanded.

So, that's...what...$50 in US currency?

It works out as about $2.7 billion in US currency (source: RTFA).

Clearly you don't get border humor.

Bah. Yet another top down scroller.

My only hope, really, is for Star Citizen/Squadron 42.

We have four Pis at the house running Raspbmc that do nothing but stream media off of the media server in the rack.

They work flawlessly and we've had zero issues so far with anything we've played. You have to manually setup the A/V sync in the settings menu, however.

...This game will probably come out on PC a lot earlier than GTA5, and even look better graphics wise.

That's not exactly a high bar to surpass. GTA5 looks like the previous generation engine it is.

Happy Birthday Prez!

Also i broke down and got Stardrive, so far very stable, no slow downs, seems multithreaded but havent really put more than a few hours into it and that was just getting use to the system. All in all, its pretty great, GalCiv+Sins is how i'd describe it.

For me, it's more MOO 2 like than anything.

I'm loving it. I play a game every day.

Really bummed.

In my fantasy world, Creative Assembly bought the IP and have decided to put a temporary hold on developing the Total War series after Rome II so they can work on Homeworld III.

Remember that Sega owns both The Creative Assembly and Relic, the developers of the original Homeworld games. They're the heavy favorite to be the buyer.

Damn, I had forgotten that Sega owns Relic now!

So, please please please please please please let it be Sega who bought it.

It's a new survival horror game. Next.

You mean, "awesome"? Because it's not like survival horror is a common genre these days, especially amongst big publishers. I'm certainly interested in this.

No, I'm pretty sure he just meant "next". Because it is exactly like there are many survival horror games. In fact, there are 17 of the fuckers either already released or to be released between last quarter and this year.

Yes, an absolute dearth of an already tired genre. Give the dead some rest and come up with something new and interesting.

You hear that sound? That's Microsoft back pedaling furiously after being "nudged" by Intel, who are less than happy that MS fucked up the PC market...

Since Intel owns a good portion of Red Hat and makes most of its money from the enterprise market, I'm sure they couldn't give a fuck less about the PC market.

In fact, they care so little about it that they are ceasing design and production of desktop motherboards entirely.

...until MS gives me a compelling reason to upgrade...

For me, they did. RSAT. Want to remotely talk to a WinServer2012 box or cluster? You'll be needing Win8, whether you like it or not.

I have it, I use it on two desktops and one tablet. On the desktops, I am ambivalent about it. It's functional, does what I ask it to and very rarely gets in my way. The same could be said about Win7 for me. The Metro interface was not something I was used to but, after using my Surface since launch, I found the transition to be less than the total, mother raping nightmare that many others are making it out to be.

Could Win8 be better? Absolutely.
Could OS X be better? Absolutely.
Could KDE/GNOME be better? Absolutely.

However, ultimately, I can not defend Metro on the desktop. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense UNLESS you're a user who just uses their computer to use the web, an Office-like suite (if not Office itself), play casual games, answer email, Facebook, Tweet and watch Youtube videos. Then Metro makes sense, because it's all right in front of your face in easy to find and read tiles.
