I didn't see anything I wanted so I decided to fire up my old Star Trek Online account and check out the Christmas specials.

It had 8 gigs of updates. Damn.
Ahaha. Didn't update before the new season was released I take it? The new content is pretty good btw, and if you liked the borg, hints laid out in the new content suggest there's more borg stuff coming in the future so with any luck, it'll be fun. As for the Dyson sphere stuff, I'm damn well enjoying the battleground content.

Their mistake was defrauding Chinese customers. If they had chosen targets in other countries I'm sure the government wouldn't have bothered to investigate.
Nah. China is very good at nailing your ass to the wall, unless you have money and know the right people to bribe. And bribery is how the entire country works. People like to whine and complain that Canada, US and UK are corrupt. Nothing, and I mean nothing has a patch on 3rd world corruption, where a gentle bit of money can make everything go so much better. And it doesn't even have to be in the quiet, as long as everyone gets paid.

It is huge in the Asia/Pacific area isn't it? Cafes and what not I assume?
Yeah it's huge in APC, but cafe's aren't what they used to be in terms of driving the numbers. And with it being break time for a lot of universities too, you'll see a huge upswing in the numbers.

Foolish protesters. According to people like Verno they deserve to be homeless and live in abject poverty and misery. Yay for social Darwinism! To hell with everyone and everything else!

Bitch, moan, complain. Of course, these people could move elsewhere to find work and become gainfully employed too. Long gone are the days of quit at 8am, find work by 10am. Of course it doesn't help that companies are abusing the visa work programs to bring in cheap labor either.

The new Star Wars pack for Pinball FX2 is $2.50. They are supposed to be some really fun tables.
I don't really have any complaints on any of them that's for sure, and for the most part they're fun like most of their tables. Right now my favorite is epic quest and tesla though. I kinda got burned out on the freebie table...heh.

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.

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.

Kinda wish I'd known about the KS for WL2 earlier, but I missed that rush. Ah well, when it's released finally I'll be happy to plonk down some extra cash for it.

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.
