I could see a 30 day jail sentence as reasonable but five years? Waaaay over the top and not beneficial to anyone.

I'm interested in the game but damn, $60 on release? Who the fuck are they kidding? Only console peasants pay that for a ~good (but not great) game. Sorry but there are many $10-$20 games on PC that are just as good or better. Price it at $30 on release and watch it sell like mad.

Count me in. From what I've seen of the recent gameplay videos, it looks like firearms are a little too hard to come by.


Probably why it's free. If you want a firearm, gotta pay hard real-world cash.

Well iirc they've said it won't be P2W so for now I'm giving them the benefit of doubt.

I'm getting signals from in front and behind. Hudson may be right.

A dedicated LoL line? What does this mean for Net Neutrality?

Very likely prohibited under Net Neutrality since it would give special, preferential treatment, to the game's traffic flow.

Net Neutrality is more about 'fairness' than innovation.

Exactly. It's the same as the Nazi's "Paper's please!!" but in wireless digital form. That information can and will be used against us and never in our favor. It's solely to incriminate us. It should be given constitutional protection under at least the fourth and fifth amendments.

They create fraudulent transmissions in public areas, intercepting and falsifying communications, and expect us to trust them. Using such a device will certainly harm their credibility. It's use is not benign nor is it in good faith.

Most people just want decent internet at a decent price which they can't get. Yet somehow they can in these heavily regulated....gasp! socialist democracies! Weird isn't it?

The US is more socialist, in practice, than them. We're one of the most socialist countries on the planet. Corporate socialism that favors the politically connected big corporations is what we have and are typified by the duopolies.

So your argument to me is flawed, pointing to other countries and saying how they're socialist and therefore socialism is better when they are actually less so in my opinion.

1. US Internet rolling out fiber-optic 10Gbps internet in Minneapolis. Dec 25, 2014, 14:31 LittleMe
 
But the local government could connect everyone in the city up with 10 megabits for free (and force them to pay for it through taxation)! /sarc

Almost everyone thinks your local connection speed to your ISP determines the 'speed of the Internet' but what's more important are all the backbone interconnections and their speed. The US is constantly criticized for having bad Internet speed but we do have a very good Internet backbone infrastructure. 20mbps in the US is not the same as most other countries because our Internet backbone infrastructure is great.

At 10Gb/s you likely aren't going to notice an improvement over 500mbps (1/20th the speed) anyway, unless you are a building of 1,000 internet addicted employees like us.

1. Making the Internet a utility—what’s the worst that could happen? Dec 20, 2014, 14:49 LittleMe
 
Wow it's nice to see this discussed _before_ such rules might come into effect. We always seem to hear regulations touted as the 2nd coming of Christ and then afterwards our prices go up and little else changes. We're supposed to trust Obama and the FCC here and only regulate as common carrier only for NN. Yeah, right..

I don't see why the bigger ISP's like Verizon and Comcast would oppose CC since it would give them even stronger monopolistic control. Thus we will see price control regulations since the root of the problem is not addressed by CC - a lack of competition/consumer choice.

Now that we’ve been through a worst-case scenario, is there any reason to think that Title II won’t trigger the apocalypse for ISPs and their customers after all? In fact, yes—if we take ISPs themselves at their word.

Maybe, but NN advocates regularly cry apocalypse on this issue. Save the Internet? Really? Hysteria much? This is the political process and what federal regulation means - hysteria and being the squeakiest and most self-entitled wheel.

News Comments > Notch Buys $70M Beverly Hills Mansion

I think I found it on google earth view. Has orange-ish roof still under construction in the image, but the pool matches up perfectly with it's distinctive curves and proximity to the house. At the end of HillCrest road on the right side (east) of the road as viewed from above. The article says the house is "Located on a promontory" and that matches up too. Mansions packed in like sardines there.

edit: here it is..

Wow! But why LA? And how many 24hr security staff guard the house?

edit: okay well after reading the article.. It says it's relatively cheap by worldwide standards. AAROE says it will appreciate but that's questionable and certainly no guarantee. Good for him. Sure, go ahead and spend a billion while you're young and save the other billion for investing.

I was eager to try Fedora 21 last week. Terrible first impression. It reset my motherboard's clock without asking me, each time I booted it. Booting two different flash drive versions both gave cryptic boot error without properly starting. After some searching I found that pressing TAB shows differnt boot options and typing 'Linux0' started the boot. Finally getting to the desktop it felt very crippled and overly dumbed down. Terrible desktop experience, terrible boot experience, very slow to download (first time).

Since people's livelihood aren't on the line they can deliver a bad product and get away with it.

Yeah, welcome to 1984. When you look at all this shit that's happened since 9/11 how can you not believe it was inside job? Cui bono? Who benefits? Who benefited the most from 9/11? It sure as shit wasn't a bunch of Muslim sheepherders.

An important skill learned from a life of sheep herding is how to make metal melt from office fires when that's never happened before and also make a building mildly smoking collapse perfectly into its own footprint several hours later.

You don't think jet fuel burning in a concentrated environment can melt metal? The towers did not collapse perfectly, that's kind of ridiculous to imply considering the immense damage.

Nope. Most of the fuel flash ignited and was gone in seconds. High octane fuel does that. It doesn't sit around and burn casually. That's an easy experiment to do, too. Lower temperature secondary fires remained and were interrupted by very loud 'boom' sounds. Even if the metal was weakened in spots, I don't believe the core of the buildings would have gone down at the exact same moment and shot out heavy debris at extreme speed as they did shattering everything into fine dust similar to a volcanic eruption.

Agreeing with Cutter. The market has spoken clearly on this and people's toleration for poor release quality is at a new low. Much better they take the time needed from our perspective (but not the bean counter's).
