Heads up for anyone on EVE hiatus for whatever reason, they've got a 9.99 promo going on for the first month.

I almost went with the Red team with my new system, almost.
I did go with the Red Team on my new system, after months of problems with nvidia drivers I had enough. Maybe they'll get their act together in the next generation of cards. And really what burned my ass over the entire thing was blaming the end users for the TDR's, hardlocks, and so on...when it ended up being their 'other driver team' fsking it all up when they moved the lead team to the 700 series optimizations.

Well got a chance to play last night for a bit, the AI is much more aggressive in building armies, so that could be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your POV, still some screwiness with diplomacy and trade agreements, but slapping in the 4turns/yr mod makes for a huge difference in gameplay as well.

I actually take extra vitamin D at the recommendation of my doctor because I work indoors and do not get enough sunlight. It has a perceptible effect on my mood and attitude.

So, should you take them to make you super healthy? No. Should you take them if you aren't getting the right combination of them in your diet? Probably.
Vitamin D3 is a good example of "why vitamins work." Since doctors started telling people here in northern latitude countries to take it in the winter, the number of cases of serious depression and winter suicide were dropping...until the current economic situation started up.

Doesn't that fall under fair use, transformitive works, and all that jazz? What I'm finding messed up in the entire thing is 'tiny portions' say 1% or less of a 30min 'lets play' is enough. If this doesn't highlight exactly how broken the copyright system is, then nothing will.

Something still feels off with the physics on the PC version. From my experience, even the Android version plays better.

Then again, Pinball FX2... still not sure how I feel about it, but the PC version does play surprisingly well, even if their table design ranges anywhere from crap to even worse.
The balls are "sticky" which is the problem. But I can live with it so I can get my pinball itch scratched every once and awhile, plus I grabbed nearly all the tables when it was up on humblebundle a few weeks back for $6, so I'm sure the hell not going to complain.

BestBuy online shows in stock here in Canada also, since last week
Most of the stores in Ontario are sold out, same at the walmarts. A buddy of mine who works at the walmart here, said they'd get another supply in this week. But they sold the 280 units they had in the first 2 days.

He did have major help, just not the conspiracy doodle stuff you're thinking of. He was very successful in using his personality to get others login information through social engineering and to obtain higher clearance levels for himself. The NSA went through an extensive internal review afterward and determined that civilian contractors had almost unfettered access to so much information that they decided to blow up all third party hires and start over.
Bingo. There is someone who's been paying attention to exactly how he got all he got: Social Engineering.

Yeah...good plan, such a great plan that people should look up here to Canada where we have 3 major carriers and 1 small carrier. And if anyone thinks it's still a great idea, all they need to do is look at the federal government and in turn industry canada now getting involved to drive down prices due to massive gouging.

I'm more concerned about the negative effects on your vision than motion sickness. Having your eyesight bug out for half an hour after taking them off doesn't sound healthy.
True on that, but the brain is pretty adaptable at things like that. Including reversing your vision, it'll quickly figure out what's wrong and correct it. Even to the point of reorienting the images so it makes sense again. Not so much in those under 18 apparently but adults? No problem. What makes me curious is how well it would work on those of us with brain injuries especially in the occipital lobe. I like the idea, the premise, and all the rest. But things like 3d TV, glasses, and so on don't work properly for me. Either I get blinding headaches, or giant splotches where the image should be but there's nothing.

Sadly, I remember seeing 3D(via polarized glasses) stuff at Disneyland as a kid, and thought it was neat as shit. When I went to Disneyworld last year while I was in FL, I could only see parts of the 3D.

Well this thing already works great in most sims. Currently the problem is the resolution, or rather the PPi.
That's exactly the same types of problems that existed back in the 90's with VR headsets, and where they worked great including FPS's. A buddy of mine had a headset in '97ish or '98.

Couldn't agree more, I would love for the CBC to lose all public funding. Then they could be supported by the left who they represent. The CBC plays no viable purpose except for lousy programing and a waste of tax payer dollars.
Well they're going to have to do something in the waste and cutting section now that they don't have hockey as a money making fallback. Who knows? Maybe it'll get back to it's original mandate of providing news and information for canadians, instead of giving opinions as news, and trying to shape public policy.

It was always 150 + 100 if you hire the Water Merchants. Frankly, I've never understood the complaining about this either. The only way to go over the time limit was to spend your time just randomly wandering around the world map. If you just follow the chain of explorable places that you hear about, you'll get to the Water Chip location pronto. Plenty of clues suggesting where to look can be found in one of the major towns as well.
Funny enough I think a playthrough back hmm two or three years ago I managed to blow a game and failed the main part of the quest because I got distracted doing side quests. It was rather thrilling to see a game punish you for not doing the primary goal like that. Probably one of the reasons I enjoy FTL so much.

Why does everyone whine about that? You get 13 years of in-game time to finish the main storyline...how can you do that?
Actually the time limit to get the chip is 120ish days or so, I think they bumpbed it up in one of the patches to 150 or 180 days. You get 13 years in total to do whatever you want, after you find the chip--minus whatever you used in the original limit.

Okay, and it works? It's running every DirectX game without any hassle? If so, I'm interested.
Nope. But it does work mostly, and it is free. You'll never see perfection until developers dump DX for OGL again.

NegaDeath wrote on Dec 11, 2013, 21:41:

The G20 spying happened during the current gov. The domestic warrantless "anti-child predators" spying bill that enraged the population was during the current gov. The same bill that has now been repackaged as as the "anti-cyber bullying" bill is during the current gov. As always it's a matter of degrees.

At worst the CBC is barely left of center. To someone far to the right even the center is too far to the left.
Hate to be a wet blanket, but you can go back through every government and find "spying" is pretty much a national past time in Canada. In fact it got so bad at one point that the mandate was ripped away from the RCMP, CSIS was created, and an entire civilian oversight board was created to make sure it didn't happen again.

And you can stop with the FUD anytime you want, there was no "warrentless spying" rather it was exigent circumstances, which was earlier struck down by the SCC regarding phone and emails anyway. As a fun thing, even if that bill did pass--I highly doubt it will, it'll be struck down by the SCC for the same reason. The courts determined that exigent circumstances is no longer a valid reason for an invasion of rights.

And calling the CBC "barely left of centre" is joke. It's not as far left of rable, but it's sure not 'barely left of centre' and that's right from their own mouths.
