...we wouldn't have a functioning system of government...

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or naive here. The government doesn't function, certainly not in the way the Framers wanted or envisioned. We have a government that shields its thugs and violates the liberties, rights and freedoms expressly laid down in the Bill of Rights and the Constitution whenever and however it suits them. We have a government that governs for 1% of the population, PACs, Lobbyists and corporate donors at the gross expense of the body public.

In what universe could that ever be construed as "functioning"?

He got a suspended sentence, has to embarrass himself publicly admitting to it in some seminar, lost his job and is now probably tarnished in that field for life.

"I feloniously stole data, invaded your privacy, violated your Constitutional and civil rights and then my buddies and I had a great time jacking it to your tits. Sorry! I have to talk about it at a seminar with other likeminded thugs and we'll pass the pics around there, too. Oh, yeah, and I'll totes get another job in a related field with a private company without much of a problem at all. I won't serve any jail time at all, either. This will die down by the time the 4th of July hits and no one will remember shit."

Yeah, his life is totally ruined and his sentence was completely commiserate with an officer of the law, who is allegedly held to far higher standards, committing a Federal felony.

Meanwhile, a chief of police in New Hampshire is free of all charges after asking a teenage girl for nude photos of herself in exchange for dropping an MIP charge. In contrast, four teens were charged with child pornography charges for voluntarily exchanging photos with one another.

Yeah, I'm really glad this douchebag received a "fair" sentence for the gross violation of public trust, willful disregard for the Constitutional and civil rights of not one but two women. Given that these are the two women who came forward, it's probably a safe bet that this assclown has exhibited the same behavior before and distributed those photos to all of his mouthbreathing thug buddies.

I would like to take a moment to acknowledge that there are good, even great, professional officers of the law who bust their asses to keep the public safe and do their job ethically. However, those men and women now seem to be very much in the minority.

H1 runs great for me @1600x1200 D3d with all of the eye-candy options maxxed. Beautiful. Not sure why you're having problems--win10TP B. 9926. Running in straight-up Win 10 mode, no compatible modes selected/needed. Catalyst 14.12 Omegas, 6-core FX-6300 @ 4.5GHz, 8 Gigs ram, HD 7850 2GB.

Can't get H2 to run yet...still trying though...
?

And this is without modding it? Now I, too, have installed the widescreen mod for it but that's it.

I've tried it on several systems, all with the same outcome. Now, the difference is that I am not running AMD hardware. Intel Core I7s and Nvidia GPUs.

As an aside, what the fuck is a "peps"?

Is that some illiterate, slackjawed, drooling retard's phone abbreviation for "people"? It's 7 fucking letters! SEVEN! You've already typed out 4! How fucking hard is it to type the other 3? Is the fucking world ending? Are you about to be ass raped and killed by Jason Vorhees and you only have 22 characters to get the message out?

Seeing how some folks have used 2008 R2 and 2012 R2 successfully for their gaming rigs... I don't see why the new Server OS wouldn't work.

The only real impediment for most people is price. You can get a desktop copy of Windows from ~$60 on up. Server, on the other hand, is usually ~$300 on up. That assumes, of course, that someone is wanting to own a license and run a legit copy.

The secondary impediment that I can see is the services that you have to manually enable, plus add the Desktop Experience Role through Server Manager, which can intimidate a lot of people.

FUCK YES!!!!! FINALLY!

I have had the Collector's Edition pre-ordered on Amazon since the day it was announced as available.

I am very much looking forward to playing this on a modern system. I, too, have all the originals (including Cataclysm) but they're pain in the ass to get running on a modern OS and the render mode is always stuck in "Software" as the Dx calls that the originals used are deprecated in today's world and even forcing it causes an ugly screen blink that gives me headaches. OpenGL works...provided it I run it in WINE on a Linux box.

I'm hoping this sells well enough that we'll see a Homeworld 3. I know that Homeworld:Shipbreakers is in development but that's all ground based RTS from what I recall seeing.

That's pretty good for an Apple product...19 hours...I mean, the 40-year old Accutron watch my Dad left me is accurate to within 1 second per year and its battery only lasts 3-5 years.

B..b..but it doesn't check Facebook or Instagram or my mail! How can I Facebook to my friends about this one weird trick that allows me to take a dump and share it with everyone on my friends list simultaneously?!

Just had another 2TB Barracuda die on me at work.

I'm thinking it's something on the controller board because of all the 2TB Barrcudas that died here (17 and counting) only one of them didn't physically spin up.

I have to back BackBlaze when it comes to HGST drives. I think I've had one fail out of the 100 or so 4TB models that we deployed and HGST overnighted us an advanced replacement.

I was worried when they were bought out by WD but WD seems to have left them alone to continue being awesome.

On the one hand they explicitly stated they have no idea where to go from here since they can't think of anything even more over the top.

On the other hand they still want to make games in the Saints Row universe.

Why not bring the game full circle and have the Saints be the gang you topple as an upstart in a relatively obscure gang? That's what you did starting with SR1.

Caution is warranted but most radiation we generate that can get inside a house by bending and diffraction instead of piercing (like radio waves, wifi, not like xray) has nowhere near the energy to be ionizing. Adding more wifi waves (if this even makes sense) doesn't increase the harm much because of the quantum nature of electron excitation.

This is heavy.


Good news. It only causes brain cancer and leukemia in children. Other then that it appears completely safe!

"Several early epidemiologic studies raised the possibility of an association between certain cancers, especially childhood cancers, and ELF-EMFs. Most subsequent studies have not shown such an association "

This is why reading is a helpful skill.

You...you...you hush with your reason and logic!

People are making a case for portrayal and simulation of rape...

No, they're not. However, let's delve in to your weird obsession with shoving your idiosyncratic morality on society as a whole and assume that they are. How is that different than, say, The Accused? Irreversible? Baise Moi? Those movies not only simulate rape, they graphically portrayed it to a point where even a jaded asshole like me was uncomfortable. However, in doing so, they garnered Academy Awards, Golden Globes, BAFTA awards, Sundance Festival awards as well as nominations for a slew of other awards for telling powerful and compelling stories.

But I guess all those people who worked on those films, labored to bring them in to being and acted in them, people who were lauded for their efforts, were just sick, amoral anarchists tearing at the belly of the lily white purity of society? Rolleyes

Killswitch wrote on Jan 16, 2015, 13:36:
Sure, I would love to live in a society where freedom of expression exists, but that reality is merely a pipe dream. You can't have a free society where a criminal element exists. I am not an enemy of freedom. I do, however, recognize that there is something inherently wrong when a person tries to capitalize on forces that oppose the society in which we live.

Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Payne, John Adams, and James Madison are all in the next room and have some wonderful ideas to share with you.

Nevertheless, define "criminal". Anyone whose speech and behavior you disagree with? The funny thing is, you speak in a manner daily that even a hundred years ago would have caused you to be ostracized. The fact that you don't know that, while haranguing about the impossibility of free speech existing is, well, hilariously ironic.

Killswitch wrote on Jan 16, 2015, 13:36:
I just don't believe the government needs to sanction the portrayal and simulation of heinous crimes that have already been outlawed in society.

You don't? Holy shit! GET ON THE PHONE WITH YOUR REPRESENTATIVES AND SENATORS RIGHT NOW! There are people (AND COMPANIES!) making these things called "movies" that do exactly that and, oh horror of horror, they've been doing it for more than a hundred years! HOW CAN THIS SICK FILTH GO ON???? Rolleyes
