Anybody use that TinyWall firewall? I was about to try it, then realized their home site is in Hungary, that seems like a red flag.
Used it before, not a bad product. Since then I've moved to a router based firewall solution. And why is Hungary a redflag?

Except its not really proprietary. They said that it COULD work on Nvidia cards, but they never really went into the details did they? This is not like OpenGL, even if it does work on the Nvidia cards, you can bet your bottom fucking dollar it wont work as well as it does with AMD's hardware.
We went through this same thing the last time AMD put out an announcement, and I'm far too lazy, tired, and dopy on pain meds. But they went right into detail about how it could be run on nvidia cards, and it would work without any heavy issues to developers. And the whole point behind it is to both undercut DX and OGL, there's already a pile of things that mantle can do techwise that the OGL committee is still sitting on their asses over.

So looks like the ancient days of 3dfx and their Glide API are back, now AMD has Mantle API.
Nah as mentioned, it's open and works on everyone's cards. If you want to see an epic level of douchbaggery see what Nvidia pulled with physx and AMD cards. Going as far as disabling physx computations if it detected another videocard in your system.

Well so far they fixed the CCC settings not sticking after a reboot. And they've fixed the webkit lag bug.

The shareholder's perspective is that EA knew that BF4 was flawed before it was released. Therefore, by telling investors before the launch that they were about to release this mega awesome new game, they intentionally mislead investors to push their share price up. Investors who then lost out when the problems became apparent and their value was hit.
Meh. More along the lines of the people who bought stock at the spur of the moment, hoping to cash in on the "it's another BF" series title got burned. And let's be realistic, it is always an option. I mean what next? Suing a casino because the odds weren't in your favor after doing exactly 284k draws and not getting a flush? This really doesn't have a leg to stand on, after all unlike hardware software can be patched.

Well it is beta. You should report that back on the main page at the very bottom where the "reporting form for beta drivers" is.

I think the point that you are missing is it delayed other titles. Shareholders should not be happy about this.
As a shareholder, I don't give a fuck. I'm still up 27% for the 1.5yr period since I bought in, and let's be realistic that's one hell of a return. It was the people trying to ride the short-term(3-6mo) gravy train that are whining.

Shit is broken guys. Badly. I took some time off from work cause my back went out, and for the first time in my life I felt I had no other choice (other than doing physical therapy daily and chiro daily)than to take the narcotics route. It took me (someone who isn't a hibitual ANYTHING and I even hate taking an advil as well) all of 2 days to realize why people abuse the stuff. I went from not walking to walking in 48 hours. I quit the pills after 4 days and increased my physical therapy.
Of course it's broken badly hell in Canada, you'll be hard to find anyone below the rank of Staff Sgt., who will tell you otherwise. And they'll all echo that at this point it'll be easier to legalize, tax, and deal with the social fallout than continuing with what we're doing. Because the crime element has become so bad, so pervasive, and so screwed up that resources could be used in other places but there's no warm bodies for it. In Canada our two biggest crimes are: Drug related, and fraud. The first gets the attention, the second only gets attention if the fraud is over $250k.

If you research and fully understand the schedules, it makes perfect sense.
No it doesn't. And I've taken the same training, and it doesn't make any sense unless you're a lawyer...or have a political axe to grind. To compare: The medications that I take for my back which are a variety of muscle relaxants, pain killers, and anti-spasm drugs are all classed as SCI in the US. In Canada they're classed in SCIII.

Fortunately businesses aren't as stupid as Republicans think, and therefore this doesn't really happen with competent leadership

I'll just leave this here. Maybe you can tell the employers and employees your grand solution to lowering their costs. After all, when you're now paying a mortgage payment for healthcare, I guess it's affordable right? Not to mention, it appears that democrats are fleeing so badly from Obamacare and it's debacle that where they're not simply outright quitting from politics, they're avoiding anything at all to do with the issue.

Quinn wrote on Jan 30, 2014, 04:54:

It's about sworn enenies putting away their differences for the greater good, and join up to fight a threat that may aswell destroy Nirn. "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." You know? The line you hear in every game and movie these days.

If you mean by "no sense at all" the fact that they really shouldn't spend millions on this shit but rather put that cash in a game that needs a hell-of-a-lot of improvement ESPECIALLY in the combat, then I can only agree with you wholeheartedly.
Okay. But here's the thing, no where does it imply that they're enemies. Parts of different factions, or anything else. They're simply people fighting. Fighting about what? Who knows. But they're fighting each other, then some other people, and we don't know who they are either except they appeared through a metal skyring. It's not exactly a great cinematic to open with because it provides nothing to those who are new to the game. No information, background, story, etc.

So, at that point it's still a case of "it makes no sense at all." As for the rest, well they probably should have hired blizzard to make their cinematic. :p

This is the second major CG trailer for this game, neither one of which makes any fcking sense at all. Cool graphics, though.
Yeah, that's what bugs me. It's got hollywood "FLASH" all over it, but no substance behind it. If it had *Xplosions* I'd have wondered if they hired Bay to do it for them.

Thats because you dont know of the lore and settings, There are 3 factions fighting for the throne of Cyrodill, (the fighting in the beggining) then comes Molag Bal, he wants to drag Tamriel to Coldharbour (hence the anchors)

PS: you dont see Molag Bal in the trailer.
Actually I do know the lore and settings, I've been under NDA for quite a while thanks. So again, what I said holds true especially if you're just grabbing the game to grab it.

I have no idea what is going on in that trailer, but to bad the game won't be anything like that.
Yeah neither do I. Usually intro cinematics exist to give you an idea of what's going on, happening, why, etc. And all I got from that is: "People are fighting each other, some other people, and then some more fighting..." But no reason why, no intro information or anything else.

So kudos to Nvidia for approaching ATI level of driver quality.. bleh
What are you talking about? Nvidia actually surprased ATI in poor quality about a year ago, when they managed to release 5 months worth of WHQL drivers that did nothing but crash(the TDR problem), and crash so often, and so badly that Nvidia was willing to pay for cardowners in the US to have their rigs shipped to California at their cost to do testing. And we can't forget the 3 further WHQL driver releases which hardlocked, crashed, and froze nearly all 400,500,600 series cards.

Early access game, where patch formats can still change. It's still late-alpha/beta quality and if you don't expect things to earth-shatteringly change you shouldn't buy it this early.

Yeah, the fact that the left and Democrats have been far more vocal on this issue for a much longer time before House Republicans suddenly thought privacy rights were cool because, you know, Obama.

The Patriot Act and FISA only got extended, not expanded, under Obama - with the Republicans' blessing from the House and Senate (Democrats made the majority of no votes in both houses).

I'll admit, Rand Paul has been pretty consisently against it, but let's not lump the entire left with Obama on this issue. The House vote was just another political sideshow. That's what the House does. Let's wait until they do something substantive before we start calling them heroes, k?

You mean the democrats who were so vocal over it that they gave overwhelming support of it?

And perhaps I should have used "illegally expanded outside the scope of their mandate under Obama." After all if there's no oversight, and it does happen on that presidents watch, it is that presidents problem.

And yep Rand Paul has been pretty consistently against it, but let's be realistic. Most of the left have been pretty a-okay with it, especially under Obama's watch. It gets worse with the media who are licking his hands like a lapdog, on issue after issue. And if you don't think so, you can take that as an "outside observer into american politics." Even in el-liberal Canada our previous Prime minster(liberal) couldn't get the media on his side during the massive fraud scheme, and that investigation is still going on to this day, along with investigations, charges and people still being locked up in jail over it. Been almost 10 years now they've been going after people. But it was running from '94-'04.

No... but relocating 10-15 people from a division certainly IS some sort of writing on the wall. Especially where it's described as a "major portion" of the team. That seems pretty indicative of a coming office shutdown.
Blizz is pretty well known to like having everything within reach of their irvine offices, if the guy didn't know that going in he knew less of what goes on in his own backyard than people halfway across the country.

Let me see if I get this right. Both sides agreed to it, both said it was necessary at the time. American people mostly agreed to it on a limited basis. New government comes to power, expands it, but it's all the previous administrations fault for the current one using it, abusing it, and expanding it. So, the one half of the isle says enough...and left-leaners are up in arms over it...saying it's all their fault.

I miss anything?
