rofl...yeah but how are you going to get around the NSA backdoor conveniently placed directly inside your router?

I built my own using an old Q6600 based system I had laying around and Linux from Scratch. While I can't say with 100% certainty that the NSA doesn't have very deep roots in to every binary used in the project, I am reasonably certain that they do not. Following the Hardened Linux from Scratch method, I feel comfortable with the security of that router.

Linux From Scratch is a huge amount of work. Gentoo Linux is basically LFS except all the downloading and compiling is automated, and they have a hardened version as well. You still have to trust the Gentoo developers, but it is a completely community oriented project, no big company support. I trust 'em.

OpenBSD is another option: http://opensslrampage.org/

Remember; Bitcoin is mutable. The functionality and features that come under the 'Bitcoin' umbrella will likely differ significantly in the future from the current offering. Bitcoin now will not be Bitcoin tomorrow.

But, bitcoin is open source. If the user community doesn't like a feature change, they can simply refuse to use the new version of the software, and fork the source code. This almost happened recently, when the bitcoin developers wanted to hardcode in transaction fees (which are currently voluntary). There was a huge backlash in the community, and the devs backed down.

I could have sworn they released an updated version like a year or so ago? With more missions, more adventures, etc.

Space Rangers 2: reboot was released a few years ago.

I can confirm that Cutter, Hellbinder, and RollinThundr all backed this movie at high funding levels.
Space Captain did too! Oh, wait...

Do yourself a favour and put that troll on ignore. I can confirm that's all he is and all he does. It's pathetic really.

Actually, he was banned. Then he came back as Space Admiral, but I haven't heard from him in many moons.

EDIT: Oh, Space Admiral was banned too. Maybe he gave up?

Damn that's too bad. I know he had a lot of posts that were deleted before I could read them. But he also was the most consistently anti-homophobic poster going back a long time, long before "ghey" slurs went out of fashion.

Holy shit... "Christ Centered Gamer". Really? I scanned the article just to see what the hell some religious nut would say about Blood Dragon and it's about what you'd expect:

"The morality issues keep me from recommending this game to others."

I would love to read their review of Quake 1.

Also, the reviewer is "Blue" -- is that this site's owner?

I read the review. He really spends very little time talking about religious/moral issues compared to some other games he's reviewed, though his "morality score" is accurate. I think he may spend less time thinking about moral issues when he has fun playing the game.

Oh shit they dropped support for my wife's 4850. 12.4b are the latest drivers that will install on her rig.
What about 4870?

erm, well, now that you mention it I googled it and:

I don't know if blue has mentioned this legacy ATI driver yet.

Kuru - a neurodegenerative disease found among people from New Guinea who practiced a form of cannibalism in which they ate the brains of dead people as part of a funeral ritual. This practice stopped in 1960, but cases of kuru were reported for many years afterward because the disease has a long incubation period. The signs of kuru include paralysis, blindness and madness, and it is always terminal.

2. Re: New AMD/ATI Catalyst Beta - Monthly Driver Releases Ending May 31, 2012, 21:19 skyguy
 
I disagree. The monthly drivers delivered no performance improvements for anything I play. Older (sometimes much older) beta drivers had better performance than whatever the latest stable monthly was. Give them more time to make some real improvements in the drivers, rather than minor fixes here an there every month.

I'm terrible about this. Frankly I don't give a crap about the environmental effect of my 4 PC's left running all night in my computer room (if the ecosystem lives or dies on whether or not I shut my computers down at night then it's already doomed), but I am killing my electric bill for sure. I can't get my kids to turn theirs off before bed no matter how many times I ask, and when I'm working I sometimes don't even go in there for days at a time. They're those high end gamer cases too that are lit up like Xmas trees and loaded with case fans. My electric company sends me a nice Xmas card every year though..

Any modern PC has the ability to suspend to RAM or hibernate. You should configure windows to STR or hibernate after an hour or two without use.

UI looks busy and lame. I'd expect this from an early 2000s era game ut not in a modern title.

lol -- the interface is nearly identical to the Civ 5 interface. Biggest difference is that Warlock's performance doesn't suck!

Parallax Abstraction wrote on May 8, 2012, 15:21:
Feels like Civ meets Master of Magic.

Warlock is clearly a Fall from Heaven 2 clone. No one here ever played Fall from Heaven 2?

5 again added more features but the same annoying bugs return among new ones. It was and is shackled with always on DRM (the launcher has been patched and it no longer works in offline mode). Ubisoft dropped support after one patch (or was it 2? certainly no more than that). Mods make it.

But SH5 doesn't have any megamods like SH3 and SH4 do. What mods do you use to "make" SH5?
