If it gets bad enough, couldn't all these internet and tech companies who oppose the dismantling of net neutrality come together and work on bringing something like Darknet to the common-folk and create a new type of internet if it were to go through?

...or would that be wildly illegal because it supports terrorism and harms children?

Already exists, Internet2 - 1000gbit international connections US/Germany/Europe ... I got to use it a few times in my old it job ;/

But to use it they would have to literally dig a channel with fiber to your door, with custom (Very expensive) non stock hardware... and you'd need a server-room. Because your home router can't handle 1000gbit ;p

Sprint's sole marketable feature is unlimited data. So now users consuming 5GB/mo can expect even slower speeds than what Sprint's notorious for? Are they trying to run themselves out of business?

I agree. We've got Sprint, almost solely for this reason. Not that I'm using 20 GB a month or anything, but I do usually coming in around 5-6GB by streaming music all day and watching videos. Other than unlimited data, I wouldn't see sticking with Sprint. They only offer 3G in our town (despite forcing you to pay the $10 a month 4G fee), and while coverage in town is good, once you start to travel it's hit or miss.

heh.. 6gb
161gb for me last month That's a "low" month ;p not throttled of course and for 30 a month... sigh

I once ordered a cable that was labeled as retail. It was really inexpensive so I had my doubts, and when it arrived it was OEM. I mentioned this in a review.

Shortly thereafter I got a phone call (wtf) from the seller pleading with me to change my review, proclaiming I was endangering his livelihood.

Ehm, so basically you complained for getting something of equal quality cheaper? Because that's what you did. There is no physical difference between OEM and RETAIL, but for the seller you mentioning this in amazon reviews brings up a huge legal issues and potentially blacklisting from Amazon store.

Also, it's pretty weird customer behavior to complain about that.. considering the seller saved you actual money.

Are you trollin? If it says retail package then it better be a retail package not some shit in a ziplock bag.


Pretty much that exactly. The item sold needs to match the description exactly. And any good seller knows that.


Yeah yeah, but In case of a cable there is no difference between OEM and retail. Except price and packaging

Mislabeled, sure.. maybe. But he kept the item and it functioned perfectly, no? And he paid less..... That's not something I would ever complain about.

$100? SANS shipping? Are they fucking crazy?!

By the way... in Germany all Amazon orders are free shipping above 20 value.. ;p

Unless it's "FSK18" - 5 EUROs p&p.

And too many games/movies at German Amazon are censored versions, so "free shipping" is not a reason to buy this sh... in these cases.

Very true, but for that you got digital retailers

Meh, Origin's not that bad. Took me three tries to install and register, which was a pain and frustrating, but since then I just leave it off unless I want to play an Origin game. I probably have a dozen or so games on there, most of which came from the Origin Humble bundle.

Not to mention you have the CHOICE not to update games. In case of modding that is a vital choice indeed.

That was an often heard complaint when Win 8 came out, that PvZ wouldn't run full screen. It's pretty hilarious that that still hasn't been fixed.

Hard to fix when the game runs at what.. 800x600 ? at least feels that way when you switch to windowed... probably more like 1024x768 but you get the idea ,p

Anyway.. free games are always nice....

It just goes to show that there are many different gamers in the world, for me Anno 2070 + Addon is nearly mind-numbing simple (As in, there is barely any challenge unless you switch on combat or play for specific self-set goals).

The early game was simple but later on when you get into research this and that the game just kind of lost me.
Maybe I'll load it up again this weekend and give it another whirl

Ah.. yeah Research can be a bit difficult to set up. Especially 3star Academy level research is not something you'll see working in 2 or 4 hours game-time It requires massive infrastructure and proper trade-route configs....

I dunno how much time you have to spend on Anno 2070 but for me average game takes like.. 30 hours.. I like seeing stuff just "work" that I setup though I am probably a borderline insane eco-sim player, for me it needs to be absolutely complex to be in any way or form interesting or entertaining. But not a spread-sheet (ala EVE), complexity needs to come from production steps and progression. Seeing all your setup production chains work right, is a great experience imo

I've tried so many times but can not get into Anno2070.
I literally have to watch hours of tutorial vids on youtube to learn the game each time I want to play it, then I don't play it for a month or so and forget everything.
Maybe it's just not for me.

Tropico seems to be a bit simpler to get into with a lot of depth to explore if I want to get into the nitty gritty of economy.

By the way GMG has a 25% off coupon that works on Tropico 5 this weekend only ALFIS4-GRATZ0-025GMG

It just goes to show that there are many different gamers in the world, for me Anno 2070 + Addon is nearly mind-numbing simple (As in, there is barely any challenge unless you switch on combat or play for specific self-set goals).

Tropico 5 certainly does not seem to be my thing either... not a fan of rts combat in economic sims, could barely stand it in Anno 2070 because the ship and aviation elements were pretty complex to setup ;p Especially fuel production.

Leeroy Jenkins says hi!

If you think Leeroy + Shadowstep is annoying, you never seen it used on the Auctioneer + 0/1/2 mana spells by rogue

There are entire decks just using 8 or so minions and the rest spells... entire balance fucked up in this game basically.. which is why ladder is worthless... and why I wait for SP content and then forget any mode aside from Area even existing.

Yes I have I've seen a rogue go through their entire deck in just a few turns, and then use combinations of damage spells, Mana Addict, and charge minions (such as Leeroy) to make short work of my health -- even when I used two Ice Barriers.

Welcome to Hearthstone. I prefer Shadow Era...

I am getting there once it's public ,) I guess I am just not pro-gaming this enough, but for me it was always just a casual distraction. And as such it was decent until 9 out of 10 enemies in ranked where playing specific crafted deck builds. Now it's a mess and really not very fun when ye come down to it. And when some of these advanced decks require 7000+ essence to craft for their strat to work... then you know it's really a pay to win game.

Oh well ;/

The hunter wild-animal synergies in general are imbalanced, it's not just unleash the hounds.

No other deck has that many synergies that you can combine with on-death +stat minions and mana cost of 3 makes 0 fucking difference! So it's played 1 turn later, whoopy fucking do. That actually means it has even worse impact.

Arena mode is the only way to play this game, but sadly you can get really fucked over by the random draw there too ;p

Yeah, I've been trying to make a go of rogue decks and even though I have a decent number of cards to run some serious damage, ultimately if you're a rogue or mage, over rank 20 need not apply.

And I'm not enamoured of grinding quests just to get a shit draw in arena and have nothing to show for it... =\

Dunno, the game balance seems off for more than just hunters atm...

Yeah that's pretty much my view too. Originally I really liked this game as a casual distraction, but the more you dig the more you understand that it has some really flawed systems in place. Cards that allow you draw more cards should be super expensive, and especially the buzzard + UTH + Leeroy combo should not result in 6+ drawn cards.

Buzzard should be PER card played, not PER summon. That alone would fix a lot of the issues. Also Leeroy needs to be changed, basically any elite that summons stuff, should never ever summon wild-animals or stack with on-summon-buff creatures.

I had a series of aggravating losses against Hunters and Rogues. Rogues especially also have an insane card draw ability... and they can also stack it with buzzard and elites.

Lazarus, Saga, Revival, and Invincible are some of my favorite comics these days. Definitely worth giving a try

I would give it a try, but how the heavens would I read cbz comics on my tablet without getting eye-cramps, or are these comics not A4 sized? Are they properly adapted to say, tablets and kindle and what not?

Because from my experience, CBZ does not have any dynamic elements, so you are stuck with whatever the formating is the comic has. And this means you end up with tiny pictures and even smaller text where you have to constantly zoom in and out...

Digital comics just doesn't do it for me. At least so far...

Indiegogo itself isn't a scam, but there may be scams on Indiegogo. Personally, I've never funded anything on Indiegogo, so can't say for sure.

Regardless, "crowdtilt" is the company behind the website here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crowdtilt

Apparently born out of some people involved with one of the big-name Venture Capitalist firms in California.

All I get from that site (not the wiki link) is
Error: Connection to server lost. (Haven't seen such an error in years)

Amazon cloud hosting too geeky for them?
