You can get Dota 2 keys from the Dota2 bot on steam:

Also, it'll take your keys if you want to get rid of them out of your steam inventory.

News Comments > MS Planning Annual "Windows Blue" Releases?
11. Re: MS Planning Annual Nov 29, 2012, 09:00 indiv
 
That's an interesting book from a former Windows engineer...

I don't know what book you meant to link to, but The Old New Thing is nothing like you described. It's a book from a current Windows engineer with essays about design challenges in WIndows from roughly the Windows 3.1 to Windows 95 transition era, intermixed with amusing anecdotes.

The "essays" in the book are mostly early articles from his blog at [url=]http://blogs.msdn.com/b/oldnewthing/[/url].

Here's me playing the game quite poorly.

That bike helmet boss with a sword threw something at you and it got stuck in the wall, at which point he went to retrieve it. I presume you're supposed to bash him in the back of the head while he's trying to pull the thing out of the wall.

You have to be crazy fast to get these tickets. 10 seconds late and no chance.

(luckily I wasn't 10 seconds late!)

But if you block ads you'll miss out that a single mom, yes that's right I said single mom, has invented a teeth whitening solution that dentists don't want you to know about! With adblock, you'll remain a slave to big dentistry forever while the rest of us have whiter teeth from the down-to-earth trustworthy single mom.

As for the Ajax-style approach, it's my understanding in that case you are having every user load all the data on the page, but just not showing some of it, but a goal here is to be able to present more stories in less space and keep the page size managable.

You're thinking of just hiding stuff with javascript. The whole point of ajax is that you load information on demand. I.e., when you click on an ajax link, it generates an http request that goes to the server to fetch data, and when the data comes to the browser it shows it.

My thoughts on the continuation approach is that it's fine unless you break up long lists in the middle. I like to scan the sales and the reviews, but I'd probably never click the "continued" link if you broke the list in half. Breaking it like you did today with the previous day's sales is fine, though. If you want to shrink the page, maybe consider a 2-column layout for the lists that are only a few words per line.

Keep up the good work. Been reading since, oh 1997? (and no adblock)

News Comments > Majesty 2 Preorder Bonuses, Movie
10. Re: Majesty 2 Preorder Bonuses, Movie Aug 27, 2009, 22:12 indiv
 
Hmm, I was just about to post how Majesty Gold runs terribly on Windows 7 (x64), but I just went into the game and it plays perfectly. Something must have updated behind the scenes within the last month (new nvidia video driver, maybe?) and fixed it.

I've been playing it a lot for a couple months trying to beat my best times. (9 days on valley of the serpents!) Great game.

28. The real reason Chrome is faster Sep 3, 2008, 23:47 indiv
 
Chrome seems so much faster for some sites because Google did an amazing job on their Javascript engine. Run some benchmarks between it and your favorite browser, and you'll be amazed.

(Run them on your current browser first, and then on Chrome)

You can expect Firefox to catch up fairly quickly seeing how they're both open source and all.

I'm going to guess that you didn't have Burning Crusade, Ant, so you're not eligible.

12. The only redeeming feature... Jun 3, 2007, 00:19 indiv
 
The neat thing about this game is that practically the entire thing (content) is written in some sort of script, meaning that you can mod everything. There are some nice mods out there that fix some defects (like the shots that travel 2 mph) or change the gameplay (like making it so your soldiers have a chance to die and you can hire/fire them). However, I don't think the fan base of this game is ever going to be of a size to make anything truly interesting.

News Comments > Vista on the Horizon
10. It's not bad Nov 30, 2006, 21:04 indiv
 
Vista is really pretty and I generally like it but I find some things a little unstable (media center, explorer, and some COM communication layer go through occasional crashing fits) and it uses up a crazy amount of resources to the point where I can't play WoW anymore with only 512 MB of RAM. I'd advise gamers to hold off unless you're getting a PC that comes with it pre-installed, which theoretically will mean that the PC is powerful enough. My laptop has a 2.9 rating because of the RAM speed, but all the other components are rated from 3.5 through 4.5.

(it's been available to MSDN subscribers for a couple weeks)

Boooo Friday show... boooooo!

It'd be better if they played more old clips and fewer clips from recent happenings. Although Bababooey's commentary is generally very entertaining.

8. "virtually finished" Aug 31, 2006, 11:34 indiv
 
In software development, 90% of the work takes like 10% of the time. That's why super cool screenshots are always released but then the game doesn't come out for another few years. That last 10% is a killer, so I'm certainly not going to think the game is right around the corner if all that remains is "maintenance and polish".

No, they'll be contexually relevant because in the future the only fast food chain that survived will be Taco Bell. And since it's dynamic, they can change this every week!
