So what does Government Sachs do? They buy a ton, make a ton on the way up. Put out a scare, sell it short and make a bundle down. I mean wow they can just manipulate investors like that.

Yeah it's a rigged game, imo.

You need to get a grip. x86 means 32-bit and/or 64-bit depending on context. You know, context? Really important and useful part of communication.

Yeah and anyway, 32bit cpu can actually use 8GB of RAM using bank switching, which has existed for a long time. On a dedicated device like a game console, bankswitching is probably feasible. In fact that wiki page says "In video game systems, bank switching allowed larger games to be developed for play on existing consoles."

But yes, context was important. x86 also means x64 here.

Edit: or Memory segmentation would be for x86.

Maybe before complaining about how Bill Gates is spending his money you should at least listen to the video. Or better yet, you should try spending some of your pittance (and I have no idea how much you make, but it's a pittance compared to him) and try to solve these problems.

Yea, I read that business model too. I'm playing NWO now, and have a Rogue at lv 60. I did not feel like I had to pay to win or get my char to that level. but again, when someone complains about playing a little bit of cash for a game that's free I don't see how in the end there is any difference.

Many people seem to think that when a Free MMO comes out that it is free. But they all fail to understand that it takes servers and bandwidth to run those games. nothing is really free in the end.

Yeah the huge amount of costs Cryptic has incurred deserves respect and consideration. I haven't even played NWO but I play on buying a few smaller items just to thank them for developing a PC MMO. It's not my ideal game of course but I've been reading a lot of good mini-reviews including your getting to lvl 60 seems like a positive vote too.

I agree though that pay2win is a bad PR move and I wont pay for that, but I won't PvP in it..

3. Shockingly, Our Timid National Broadband Plan Isn't Working. May 8, 2013, 19:42 LittleMe
 
The USSR used 'national plans' and those failed too. Control freaks and people who want free shit (broadband in this case) like the feel good national plans. Also big monopolistic corporations like the free government money, but it has all mostly failed in my view.

Isn't it obvious the problem is too much government and not enough free market? Well that's how it looks to me. The Internet should not be a political issue. It is a product that we should be able to buy or use as that the market provides.

Basically what the article tells me is play NWN for free (which I've been doing), and if you're into PVP be ready to spend. It's completely F2P and a very expensive pay-to-win. Seems more expensive than most, but that Chris Roberts space game appears like it may be in the same ballpark.

I'm really not sure how gamers get a sense of satisfaction buying their way to an uber character.

Yeah it might be that most gamers aren't willing to pay much (or sub) for this type of game but a small percentage are willing to pay well above and beyond and that apparently makes up the difference. At least it's f2p.

I remember there were certain arcade games in the 80's and 90's that I payed a lot of money to play, by today's standards. Most arcade games I didn't play much at all but the few I did like, I payed a lot. If that analogy works...

Simply put a law in place that states it's illegal for a software manufacturer to end support for old software in Japan. Problem solved.

No, that's wrong. All the essential nutrients are in the skin, the rest is mostly just sugar and water. I have a friends who's a real health nut and when he eats apples he just takes shallow bites to get off all the skin and enough apple to keep it moist than composts the rest.

Good info thank you!

Was anyone even fired for this fiasco? Will anyone be prosecuted for this? The value of your dollars even worth even less now, since its value is propped up by military might. LOL now the Chinese have drones just as good as ours with huge R&D costs payed for by us.

Fukkin AT&T. Yeah right they offer "at least 100 dollars" for a phone trade in. I put in my iphone 4's stats, and they offer gladly to "recycle" it for me.

Pricks. I can get 200 bucks for it on ebay.

I'll give you $50 for it.

That demo is likely to be found in this FTP:

ftp.amigascne.org

In fact pretty much every demo ever made on the Amiga can be found there. I recommend using WinUAE as the emulator.

Thank you but I couldn't find it. But I did find this demo that I used to load just for the music. Haven't heard that tune in a loooong time, as in about 21 years when I sold my A500.

Good links here thanks! Loved the Amiga demos, too.

Anyone remember the one short Amiga demo, I think by Silents or by Crystal (?) where it just had a bunch of balls with piano music going? You could set all sorts of parameters for the balls as they animated and make lots of very cool patterns. Been trying to find it for years and haven't yet. I loved the music, oddly, and it was fun and rewarding to see all the different animations by changing the values..

RE: CISPA - logic prevails. I was glad when Obama came out against it, but also surprised. Obama has not only carried forward the surveillance state started under Bush, but also expanded it.

Yeah the ruling class will just take a more gradual approach, timed with regular catalyzing 'events.' They're slowly turning up the heat, not trying to throw us in hot water all at once.

Somehow the words 'democratic' and 'censor' don't seem to go together, perhaps things aren't as democratic as they should be.

Democracy is the road to socialism. Socialists are authoritarian and authoritarians by their nature, censor. I was going to quote a page on this here but since Blue is upset with thread derailing, I'm not sure how on-topic it would be. In my opinion it would be on topic since it addresses the first word 'democratic.' But google with 'democracy road to socialism'.
