Waiting for NVidia's announcement tonight. Almost guaranteed to also be a streaming device. I like Steam a lot, but I want something that streams anything I want from my PC< not just Steam. And surround sound.

And this is why this is bullshit. It's not even the guy who wrote the fucking song but his family. Why should they have any claim to it? They had fuck all to do with it.

Because lazy, entitled bastards need some form of income they don't have to do anything for.

Hey if they get money or not, whatevahs.

But you cannot deny they were a weasel doing this back in the day. They were touring with Spirit and this is a song of theirs. Later STH comes out and you can't say they took a part of their melody and we aren't talking a standard rock n roll melody, but a very unique one.

That happened, imo no question, pretty low of them, unless they can prove they were given permission, then all is good in LedLand.

It's not even the same melody. It's a similar chord progression, but not the same. Page was probably inspired by it and wanted to do something similar. That happens all the time. Suing over it almost half a century later is retarded.

It's standalone software, who cares, stop being weird and just download it. Awesome and easy to use.
Telling Cutter to stop being weird is like telling the sun to stop rising in the East. Why did you waste your time?

Don't care what the trucker did. He had right of way, and stopping a truck like that doesn't happen quickly. She passed on the right - a no-no - AND tried to cut him off. Hope you got good insurance sweety, fixing anything on a truck costs a ton of money. Also, please don't breed because you are fucking DUMB.

What did you do today, honey?

It's on Starz. Which means I'll be waiting for Netflix. So no spoilers!

(Enjoyed Spartacus, so looking forward to Black Sails)

I got the first season on Blu-Ray last month. Debating buying the second on Amazon video. (generally available the day after they air on STarz.)

Since they can't decide who owns it, sounds like we're all clear to pirate the hell out of it. I bet re-releasing it would get someone to find the paperwork.

If you ever seen the "file" systems some companies had before they went to digital you'd know that their ownership contract is never, ever going to be found. If it didn't end up in a landfill somewhere already, it's stashed somewhere nobody is ever going to find it. Most likely a lawyer that worked for some company at some point had it in his office and it went with him wherever he wound up.

Saw this dress on Reddit. Turns out, the dress is literally blue/black and the photo is severely overexposed and color shifted. I personally see it as bluish-white/gold in the original photo but the links below provide more info:

Actual colors in original photo: http://i.imgur.com/RsvSM5N.jpg
Actual dress in normal colors: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Roman-Womens-Detail-Bodycon-Dress/dp/B00SJEUCWU

I see the same, a light blue and goldish brown. I've seen so many pictures of things that I have taken show up as weird colors that it doesn't shock me how different this appears. I just think it's funny how big of a thing this turned into. Jesus people, nothing better to do?

Mmmm, a couple of quibbles:

jdreyer wrote on Feb 26, 2015, 19:55:
*Sigh*

3. First, the US government does not "run the public school system." Schools are all run locally. You States-Rights conservatives should know that. But that lack of central oversight will result in a wide variation of quality. Second, the US doesn't spend the most per student, but it's second, so I'll give you that one. We're in line with most Western European nations. That being said, "We spend the most, so we should have the smartest students," is extremely simplistic. The US economy is strong, so US teacher salaries are going to have an outsized effect on those numbers, for example. As a % of GDP, we'd be right in the middle of the EU, which is closer to our lower test scores in the world.

The Feds absolutely run our school systems. They SHOULDN'T, but they basically do. I'm married to a teacher, I know a lot of teachers and I've done research on it. The Feds take tax money that should be going to the states in the first place and hold it over their heads. If your State's schools aren't playing by the Fed's rules, they get no funding. Since the Fed's stole erm, taxed so much money, local governments cannot raise local taxes enough to pay for the things they need. And teachers are fucking underpaid for the amount of work they do and the level of education they need.


I personally think the "WoT" is mostly a boondoggle that enriches corporations while providing much less security than we're actually paying for. And in some cases, we're using the money that implement policies that drive terrorist recruiting efforts (Hi, drone strikes!) That being said, we haven't had another attack like 9.11 on US soil, so it hasn't been a failure. Not sure what your point was? That it is very wasteful in the protection it provides? I would agree with that.


Yes, but we never had an attack like 9/11 BEFORE either. It's like saying your magic dead rat that hangs from your car mirror protects you from having an accident because you haven't had an accident since you hung it there. You're correlating data that probably has fuck all to do with one another. But, yeah, War on Drugs, War on Terror, it's all bullshit.

DX10 exclusive.

Welcome to Halo 2 for Vista!

At least Win 10 is a free upgrade.

I don't know, this announcement says to me:

M$ - FUUUUUUUUCK, why are you guys taking so long to make this game?

Uh, sorry. Tech issues, story issues, it just takes a while to get it all polished for release.

M$ - No. Fuck that. Put it out SOON. Whatever you have to do. Half-finished, buggy as shit, we don't care, just PUT IT OUT.

Uh....well....maybe we can do.....free to play with microtransactions?

M$ - BRILLIANT! DO IT! DO IT NOW!

I'm a Libertarian, but I say this is mostly a good thing. I laughed at Verizon's bitchy letter about this today, as they claimed the Federal Government has no Constitutional purview to regulate them.

BITCHES, you are looking at the very definition of INTERSTATE COMMERCE, one of the very few things the government is SUPPOSED to regulate. The Internet isn't even one of the bullshit things the Feds always cram under interstate commerce that don't really belong there, it IS interstate commerce. Probably 90% of what is done on the web is business, i.fucking e. COMMERCE.

The sad fact is that the ISPs had decades to run free and fuck us as they pleased. They proved they can't do it without regulation.

The only thing they failed to address, which hopefully state governments will, is the competition. Great, now States cannot block local ISP competitors. Nobody can compete, however, if they aren't allowed to use existing lines and are legally forbidden to run their own.

I'm a PC gamer who is spending hundreds of hours playing destiny with my friends on my PS4. But... I also use an XIM4 adapter to play destiny with a mouse and keyboard because shooters absolutely SUCK on a game pad.

That being said.. I find todays consoles and todays PC games to be extremely shit for multiplayer and friend finding compared to 1996 Gamespy Arcade for Quake 1 and 2.

It's actually really sad.


Yeah, I miss the old Gamespy.

And Wtf_man, your talking about the level 80 zones collectively called Orr. You may be interested to note that the whole 'monster density problem' was toned down a little some time ago and there are half a dozen zones for level 80 in the game these days. Though if you do your personal story it'll always take you there, it's entirely optional.

At the time it was Malchor's Leap and Cursed Shore Zones... the beginnings of Orr?... I can't remember.

Anyway... after futzing in those zones for a couple of weeks I was completely turned off by the game. I'm glad that they possibly fixed it, though.

Still a bit overpopulated, but WAY better than it was at first. You couldn't walk 5 steps without being attacked. Now you can mostly avoid combat if you are careful. The original GW had a bunch of places like that as well.

I thought that I read that this game was coming to PS4 at some point. Anyone know anything about that? I've pretty much left my practically brand new gaming PC to collect dust in the corner in favor of the ease of console gaming. Blasphemy, right!?

It was going to be released on PS3 and 360, but they eventually decided against it. I wouldn't hold your breath on a next gen version either.

i'm not even sure anyone cares about the Aliens franchise anymore... it's been so long.

And yet, there was a lot of excitement for Alien Isolation, and is for the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront, which is as old as the Alien franchise.

As far as Isolation, people like quality. No one's been screaming for another AvP movie.


I can't wait. Hasn't been a good Alien movie since Cameron's take. Prometheus was OK, but it felt about as related as the corny AvP movies. Why can Dark Horse come up with great plots for Aliens and Predator, but Hollywood gives us shit? (Well, Predators was great. Much better than Predator 2, actually.)
