I remember trying a two players VR game in college. Sheesh, those helmets were heavy for my little head.
Yeah they were heavy. But you're an Ant! Anything like that, should have been light as a feather.

Those street lamps melted because there was a dumpster fire nearby.

That's good to hear Blue.

Misleading headline is misleading, bad newspaper. "Oklahoma is so hot that street lamps are melting." No they're not. The long-strand translucent polymer bubble covers are melting, and that's because they're made using one of two forms. Either by lowheat forms then glue bonding, or by vacuum forming. The bulbs themselves I'll bet are low pressure sodium, both of which emit very little heat. Meh we used both types of forming back when I was working in medium and heavy industry, and when the plant hit 125-130f, all our stuff would go *bloop* the first time we did it, we yelled at management. And shitcanned it. The second time, we switched to a new forming processes.

Make the game more like TBC/Wrath and they'd draw people back.

So, aside from class actions which I think are pretty bullshit, how does everyone feel in general about terms of service changes when the company has hundreds or thousands of dollars of your digital licenses held at gunpoint?

Should they even be able to change it on you at that point?
Not legal here, so it really doesn't affect me at all. So really, it sucks for people that it does. Should they be able to though? Nope. It's a failure of law, because it hasn't caught up with technology.

It is a huge win for corporations because they can basically write lawsuit immunity into all their license agreements. In 20 years times this will seriously fuck everyone over.
Get consumer protection laws then. Canada has them, Europe has them. Kick your state legislators in the chops and get them to write laws to protect you from such things then. If you have to, "copy" laws from other provinces/states to do it. Ontario's is good, so is Quebec's, and so is Denmark and Germany's.

Classy there Kotaku. The only thing missing was some WWII propaganda theme music from Germany.

and to the guy that's saying "release more content at more intervals", just be quiet. Who the fuck wants to play a game that doesn't end? Just release the game once, and stop changing shit.
Yeah WoW, EQ, EVE, etc and so on must be terrible games. I mean...people just keep playing these games, and they never end!

But 3 films? Really?

The book is great, but it isn't THAT long.

They could have made LoTR, 6 movies long for all the material they cut from the books. I was sorely disappointed that there was no Tom Bombadil.

I wait for the day when Amazon or some other big storage/computing site has a catastrophic failure and all that business data is just gone, and all those companies who became completely reliant on it are now completely fucked overnight by something they can do absolutely nothing about. But they saved 10 grand a year for the past 5-10 years and it only put them out of business overnight!
Done: Amazon outage raises serious questions basically discusses the problems with cloud storage and all that jazz. There was another thread on /. too, where a whole pile of companies got left with their asses hanging in the air.

EVE is basically FP2 too, you just have to work for it in game. Though to get started you do have to pay.
Or you could just be a filthy stinking pirate, and try to get lucky. There's nothing really stopping you from doing that in game of course, except perhaps everyone else piling on you, and well concord.

Computerworld article is terrible. Though the two worst offenders in there were the cloud and fortran/cobol sections. Fortran/cobol? Yeah there guys, that's why they're looking for 8-15k new FT/CB programers a year...legacy is still running the world, nearly 40 years later.

It doesn't. This guy is out to lunch and always has been, Stallman doesn't have a book inside reality. As many people have already figured out. Funny enough he doesn't seem to have a problem with WINE. Umm...k? Doesn't that mean the same thing.
