That NAS review is hilarious notice with 2 absolute high-end 5TB WD HDD's on idle 48C

Operating temperature in spec listed as: 40C

So it's already running hotter than it was designed for, on idle.

If you ever ran a long job (torrents/downloads/large folder copying) you will UTTERLY regret buying that It'll have zero temperature stability. IN summer that thing will run so hot it will be a danger to the HDD's. Notice how mr reviewer did not check SMART temperature info on the HDD's which if the system is on 55C (as he writes in later pages) would mean the HDD's were ABOVE THAT.

If you want to bake your HDD's this is the NAS to buy.

I've had a really bad experience with a QNAP NAS, I would never buy them again. And especially a fan-less NAS sounds good on paper, but unless you have it sit in a constant air-stream it'll run extremely hot

Yeah I don't really see any point in buying a cheap off the shelf NAS, they just eat HDDs. I have an Iomega ix2 that only lasted a couple of months before toasting one of the drives to death.

Better to just build a server machine with plenty of drives, airflow, and as much CPU power as you want for e.g. transcoding and Plex/MediaBrowser serving.

I'm wondering how many hours it would take to walk from S to N on the map, in first person.

Why would it take any longer?

Because if you're Adolf Hitler, and your goal is to conquer all of Europe, then obviously you would... release... dinosaurs to ... trample... all of Europe?


You know he would have had he had the ability. It's a great game BTW, just needs more players.

Frozen Endzone is great. If you like football and turn-based tactics it is worth a look. Plus the music is phenomenal; e.g.: https://soundcloud.com/nervous_testpilot/our-heroes-wip2

I wish there was a Railroad Tycoon "game" layer on top of the simulation.

Check out OpenTTD, an open-source remake of Transport Tycoon Deluxe.

Are there really "classic artillery game mechanics?"

I mean really....I dont sit back and go

"OH MAN I WISH SOMEONE WOULD BRING BACK A CLASSIC ARTILLERY GAME"

Sure there are: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artillery_game

Very classic, actually. Scorched Earth was pretty popular in "modern" times.

I guess they are going for the Worst Driving Game Ever award to go along with Worst Company in America.

The languages don't vanish when a new is introduced. Its merely a new option for others to use if they wish. Its important to understand who is the intended user and what goals your after. There is no perfect language that solves every domain of problems. In the case of Wolfram they write software for scientists and academic use for people who don't necessarily have computer science/engineering backgrounds.

Languages like Ada, Pascal, Fortran all still exist and the specifications are being updated over time. Like I said before its about understanding your problem and finding a language that fits the problem. If your happy with a language because of your competence then stick with it. There are compilers for every much every language that was ever used.

True enough. I have a tendency to be a drama queen in my post sometimes. Much of the frustration is squarely targeted at Microsoft and Windows 8.

No offense to Mr. Stephan Wolf. But I somehow doubt he has achieved the rockstar status that Einstein has achieved. You don't even have to use his first name for people to realize who you are talking about.


It's Wolfram you dingbat. No he is not as well known as Einstein, but definitely more than you seem to be giving him credit for. Surely you've heard of Wolfram Alpha?

I don't know why more people don't just use ISO dates: 2013-11-12. Year, month, day. Sortable, sensible, simple.

I really need to get around to playing this. I loved the first game. I actually won a signed copy of the game from the Relic team for winning a map contest.
