Is there anyone who hasn't had a security breach at this point? I stopped caring a long time ago.
Nope. Pretty much everyone from the lowest company to NGO's to government organizations get hit.

I wonder if they are going to put even bigger dildos in the game, to compensate for the loss of "other" violence
I'm up for a new achievement. The ultra-penetrator beatdown, with full gimp mode!

Must bead down 20 gimps, while dressed as a gimp yourself.

... A public trial where he would undoubtedly be found guilty would do much to discredit the surveilance state. Its a terrible sacrifice though...
He would never get a public trial. It would be held in one of those lovely secret courts, you know for terrorists. In the name of "national security" especially after the other revelations that have come up.

Yeah, It did look like a phishing scam didn't it? I'm so sick of these companies that make huge profits and won't spend dime one on security.


Meh be realistic. A company can spend good money on security, to have it undercut by a 0-day exploit, or an undisclosed exploit.

Anyway, that "cute aggression" article is pretty damned close to bad science. I like to pop bubble wrap, simply to pop it.

USB 3.0 support - download a driver.

The rest are buzzwords a hardcore nerd might drool over, but they really don't mean squat.

Here's an example of a must-have upgrade: Windows 2000 to Windows XP. Why ?

Because

a)proper hyperthreading support at the time when HT became popular
b)Cleartype at the time when LCDs were massively gaining popularity

Windows 8 has nothing like that on it.
Well downloading a driver is good...for those "hardcore nerds" as it were. Most people can't install a printer without managing to hose the installation even with an 8 or 16 step sheet of paper.

Timer coalescing isn't a buzz word, rather the current implementation is meant to mean to fix the near-inevitable problems that IRQ and other interrupts have been having for the last decade and poor or no proper escalation of a device in the system bus. I'm guessing you either don't know, or didn't know about it. Including the various tools that "the nerds" used to use to bump various devices manually higher up on the timer and interrupt chain. Making it so that it's handled natively is a very good thing. And that's not even touching software handling for unique software assignments in the chain, or recovery states.

Advanced GPU recover again isn't a buzzword. Rather it stops the BSOD issues that GPU's had for quite a while. Fixed for the most part about 3 years ago, with the new WDDM overhead, and seems to be fully and completly invisible to the user in Win8 which is nice. Though *not* being told could mean you're missing something serious such as a failing GPU.

And while eDrive support or the phrase is indeed a buzzword, several of my friends who sell the bloody things up here in Canada at the wholesale level have seen a massive up-swing in sales since the massive NSA spying scandal hit. And people have been picking up Win8 to have native support for that which is interesting.

Got the main game for $8 several weeks back on GMG or Gamefly, can't recall which now. So I'd say hold off.
Yep, it's all over the place in terms of sales. I picked up the main game plus DLC for $15 off GMG about 6mo ago. I don't have any regrets on it either with 92hrs into it with just the world events and main campaign.

Wow...I used to think I wouldn't mind visiting Sweden someday... Speechless
About 14 years ago, a made a pretty good friend via IRC who lived there. Setup and deployed one of the first rural fiber networks in the country. It was bad then, it accelerated back about 5 years ago. He's since gone and left the country, and moved to Singapore. People think taxation is crazy in the US and Canada, when he left he was dropping around 63% of his paycheque yearly in taxes.

Does anyone have any experience using a 21:9 ratio monitor like this one for gaming? PCGamer was down on it, but some Amazon reviews I read said it was awesome.
Can't really say. For most people the 1.8(aka 16:9) ratio is the golden one for your eyes. The only way to tell if it's worth it, is to see it in action.

While the latter is not a word (a quick dictionnary attack would fail), it is still less secure knowing how crack engine works as of today. But will that change?
True, also according to the rules of entropy, a long word phrase of nonsensical things that make sense to you, but not to dictionary/pass-phrase attacks is just as equally strong if not stronger as random alpha-numeric's that a computer especially GPU crackers are good at running against.

The difference, I believe, is around account requirements. I believe in the past that while a Canadian developer could start a kickstarter project, they had to have a US bank account or the like.
To be perfectly honest that's not hard to get. Head to any TD Candatrust and say "I want to open an account at a US branch." Deposit $x monies.

The change they have about zero experience from kills, only from quests, seems HUGE. I understand the reasoning, but that seems potentially game breaking.
Well if you know what you're doing it's pretty easy to exp cap yourself out before act 3, and with that be overpowered even on the hardest setting. Something like this could make it very challenging.

People really like Ravenholm that much? I thought the Novac was prison was the most well done part of the game.
Novac was excellent without a doubt, but in terms of "oh shit, oh shit, oh shit" gameplay Ravenholm was it for me.

Hmmm, I didn't remember it. Anyway, glad it's cancelled, since Ravenholm was the worst fucking part of HL2.

Really I loved it, probably because not only was annoying but it scared the hell out of me, and very few things do these days. But I understand the whole "fsking hate it" bit, especially after my 4th playthrough.
