And someone has some control over the ebb and flow of the dollar, which is actually a good thing.

They manipulate the dollar to benefit themselves (central banks) and benefit the political elite while robbing the populace through perpetual debt and inflation. Banks get bailouts despite their own failures and we get shafted to pay for it.

So he'll dump his product on the market below cost to put the competition out of business and then raise it sky high afterwards. (I didn't RTFA)

Played for a few hours today and had fun pretty much the whole time with a new barbarian char. First time playing since not long after release. Felt no local lag and other players lagged only a few times.

I think having a 120hz display helps this game a lot since it scrolls the screen all the time. It benefits maybe even more than FPS's at high refreshes. Yes the in-game fps counter said 60 but it felt like 120 and I'm certain the mouse cursor was moving at 120. The LCD information screen confirmed it.

When I see a sale on an early access game, it makes me think that they're broke and need cash to further fund the game development, reminiscent of the 1980's S&L banking crash.

That said, I think I'll buy GD at that price. heh

Nobody counts Steam sales, because they can't. No third party has access to the data, so any PC figures you read in these blurbs are always off. By a lot...

Oh right, now I remember that. TY

I'm surprised PC is only 6% of South Park sales!! Wow.. But PC sales have a much longer tail than console, yet I could see justifying a delayed PC release to better focus on the console release, if it works that way at Obsidian. *shrug*

Maybe we PC gamers have enough to play for now and are waiting for the %50 sale a few months from now. I know I am.

Good interview. I liked Computer Chronicles but always wanted longer episodes and more Amiga news (before '94). Glad Stewart is doing well today. He sure has aged!

it is basically untraceable.

What?!?! The entire ledger is public information. It's far more traceable than US dollars! We could be so lucky if our major institutions used Bitcoins, we would see and be able to scrutinize all the corruption and waste imposed on us.

E. Going with point 3, did this go from true sandbox to rail driven story?

Yeah this is what I'm concerned with. How much was gutted and changed for a 'make it happen no matter what' release. Waiting for reviews and gameplay vids first.

Raising minimum wage doesn't not lose jobs, it cuts into profit. When you get to the point you're hiring employees in a small business then you're making enough money to support yourself and the business. If you can't afford another $50-$100 a week for an employee then you can't afford them to begin with.

It's irrelevant. Wealth has been exported out of the country and channeled to the politically connected corporations. Wages stagnate as a result. Raising minimum wage doesn't address the cause, only a symptom.

Hilarious. These people forgot that they needed something called financial security.

External forces at work on the currency, not the fundamentals of it. Governments outlawing it, security issues with Mt Gox, etc..

Governments want to outlaw it because that is their stranglehold for robbing their populace through mandated inflationary currencies that benefit the elite (and rich).

"It's not a currency," he said.

Of course it is. It fits within the definition of a currency because it moves around, creating a current. Currency is a term derived from the word 'current' or 'in circulation'. Indeed the bitcoins move around the globe, mostly across the Internet.

From wikipedia on the definition of a currency: "A much more general use of the word currency is anything that is used in any circumstances, as a medium of exchange"

A rise in minimum wage isn't going to do much or anything to address the disparity between the rich and poor. That's fantasy magical thinking. The disparity is a product of a deeper economic mechanic because we are a debt and consumer based economy and no longer a savings and production based economy as we were 50 years ago. China is now the production and savings based economy and their wealth is skyrocketing not because of minimum wage laws but because they are producing physical goods people want.

Raising the minimum wage only sounds good because it's easy to understand in a simple sentence uttered by a politician or news reporter. Sure go ahead and think it will work, and then believe the self serving lies they tell you later as to why it didn't work and their next failed solution.
