Yes I certainly agree with Neocities' right to limit traffic to whomever they want. That's what NN would outlaw which if you think about it is wrong for the government to outlaw how Neocities' right to manage their traffic flow how they want to.

The "Internet" wasn't designed or ever intended to be 'neutral' but rather free for parties to connect *independent* networks. Independent means a network (or ISP) can manage their network as they see fit. The problem of course is if a network has a government-backed monopoly then of course that is the problem right there.

I doubt Net Neutrality won't change much besides embolden the status quo duopoly. The article makes NN seem like the people's savior but it's not. Typical socialist rhetoric that misses the mark in failing to identify the real cause: a widespread lack of competition.

Parkour is a really concept on its own, but when it comes to zombies, it makes really great sense, since its like the opposite - zombies clumsy and barely mobile, where as parkour is smooth fluid and highly mobile.

Yes that's a great insight.. Yeah I like the parkour in this a lot. Also the setting is beautifully done. I'm excited about this title and am willing to wait if that's what they want. The extra development time makes me even more excited to play it!

Even Dead Island was a big game and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would, once modded for pc FOV and the framerate stutter fix. DI is great if you don't expect a lot.

Awesome news. Yeah the quality of mod content will be better and more organized. It's going to encourage and reward quality material and support from modders and the community. Reading this I'm hopeful it will turn out for the best. I'm left wondering if they are going to do some sort of open sourcing for the engine and let modders charge for their clients (ala Darkplaces or Qrack for Quake, etc).

What about this concern that all the higher level content hasn't been tested/polished nearly as much as the lower levels??

I'm interested in the game. I played the beta a few weeks back. Found it entertaining up to level 11.

This thread was informative!

Also I'm hearing reports that the content below level 32 is far more tested/polished than above. So I'm concerned about buying it based on the earlier levels right now. Waiting to hear reports.

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler has declined to reclassify broadband as a telecommunications service...

they are painting of themselves (FCC) to the media, as protecting the rights of citizens while they are actually doing the opposite.

tl:dr except to say that this is what it will be no matter what sort of populist rhetoric we hear from websites demanding Net Neutrality. NN rules will be a scam, written by the likes of Veriz, Comcast and Time Warner to benefit them. That's why I don't want it and I don't think even a proper NN would solve the issue that ISP's lack competition and so may start demanding web sites pay them for better connections, etc..

I just hope they don't do the titan mode again. That was awful, but I'm sure casual players enjoyed it for a few hours. Those of us who want a hardcore UT3 game stayed away from it. Also several of the new maps were terrible even though they looked nice artistically.

The game MUST be better than the TV show, it's simply impossible for it to be otherwise.

IMO, it is. I found it to be a rather fun casual fling from time to time.

Nationalize the internet!

All that would do is solidify what we already have. What we need is innovation and competition and a free market. Nationalizing the Internet is a terrible, terrible idea.

I'm hopeful but I don't think the early access is appropriate yet. Maybe in six months or something but we already have DayZ unfinished/unfun...

Likelihood of game being as good as the hype suggests? Maybe %20? At least UBI does good PC ports, of late.

Epic find. Achievement unlocked.

I played it at a friends, back then.. He knew how to play it and I thought it wasn't terrible. We had fun for a couple hours. I remember you had to search around the landscape and dive into holes or something like that. It was the console's graphics that sucked too.

7. Fraud from one Bitcoin miner maker. Apr 22, 2014, 13:53 LittleMe
 
For many crypto-minded libertarians, Bitcoin is the future of money.

Way to spin your own view onto others with a half truth. No, we don't view Bitcoin as the future of money. Some forms of crypto-currencies, yes, but probably not Bitcoin especially since it's not backed with anything real.

And yes there are scammers out there. There have been everyday scammers who used dollar bills for a long time now, too. Well in fact the article states clearly that's exactly what BFL has done by taking US dollars for pre-orders.

Sure, be cautious when pre-ordering anything from a dubious company. But it doesn't directly relate to the credibility of libertarians or crypto-currencies in general as the opening line leads you to believe.

The monetary system we use encourages this evil corporate behavior. Perpetual debt makes people do things they wouldn't normally do because there is fear of defaulting (on loans).

3. Beer prices could go up under FDA rule that angers farmers, brewers. Apr 20, 2014, 13:51 LittleMe
 
Oh now they want to mess even more with beer drinkers and cattle farmers. Very bad idea. Not surprising though.

“When we talk about exemptions, we have to be careful,” McChesney said.

Now you have another fat thumb you live under.

Happy Easter!

Cautiously optimistic here... It could end up being a better game over DayZ, too. PS2 is a lot of fun now with all the updates it's received.

No it's time for governments to get draconian on cyber-crime and force the private sector to do the same.
