IP adress IP adress

Ok and how does a dynamic IP tell them who I am. Nevermind if you couple it with things like private browsing with tracking turned off, plus adblock, ghostery, VPN, et al. They don't know my family and co-workers as I don't have them on my FB account. And I only have a handful of friends on FB. Even for the few photos I'm tagged in, it's still under a fake name. About the only thing they know is that I'm in Canada. No, these companies only know what you let them.

Aside from that being true, you should really google "browser footprint"
-> https://panopticlick.eff.org/

For me
Your browser fingerprint appears to be unique among the 4,070,567 tested so far.

And no, private browser windows, dynamic IP and VPN do NOT affect this tracking

Aside that, watch the big talks from 30c3 to understand how little your fake profile does to actually keep you hidden. They can reverse your identity out of anonymized data sets... and those are freely sold by nearly ALL major infrastructure providers.

DIY Guide: Smartphone VR Headset Plays Oculus Rift Games for $20.

I'm tempted to try this, just b/c I have a decent phone (Galaxy S4), webcam, and some of the other parts.

Has anyone tried this? Thoughts? I bet the lag is bad.

If the lag is bad, then it will make you sick... so better save that money for the real deal.

And that grill is genius. Simply amazing no one ever up with something like that before.

Probably because
1) Someone already came up with that
2) You can buy A FAR BETTER VERSION of this on e-bay for 20 bucks
google "Grilliput Folding Anywhere Charcoal Grill "

Foldable grills aren't exactly new...

How is that better when is requires assembly? Nope, this one is better. Just roll it up or unroll it and pound in 3 spikes, done.

It's better because you can buy it on ebay right now Obviously.

While you are right, that linked one is better designed, but it is not buy-able....

No it really looks bad for AMD, lower costs in CPU division means less R&D and thus, Intel domination for eternity. And I bet 90% of their GPU business profit is from crypto mining and SoC's (console GPU)

Overall, AMD isn't dead, but it's irrelevant. And I think that's worse.

Also gotta love the bad management decisions. Broke contract with Global Foundries and had to pay massive contract penalty only to run crying back the them after TSMC didn't deliver. AMD is run by retards

same here, the concept is extremely smart and there is such massive depth to the simulation behind it... no 2 games are ever the same

And hey, my first game (tutorial ~.~) ended in a death.. heh Got too trigger-happy and tried to solve a Quest the hard-way (guns blazing and with little tactic) but turns out, me against 14 cap ships, bad idea.

Not to mention the world still needs people who actually do physical stuff. An engineer may create a bridge on a computer but people still have to go and build the thing and the things that make up the bridge and every other ancillary part of the physical process connected to it.

Wait another 20 years and nobody needs to do physical work ever again. 3D Printing can be industrialized, and when they pump out entire bridges and buildings with one of these things how many workers you think are still required?

And this is why I use a two garbage passwords for unimportant sites so I don't have to go around changing them all then this shit happens - which is like every fucking week now. And different much more secure ones for stuff like banking, etc.
At this point I've switched over to using lastpass for everything, too many sites with too many bloody esoteric requirements for passwords. Uppercharacter, lowercharacter, special letters, numbers, assprint, fingerprint, dna, bloodtype, etc.

Best are the sites that only allow 12 char passwords ;p

The email they sent out seems extremely fishy (phishy?)... the link for the "Reset Password" button is a very long one and ends up using list-manage.com? I will not use that email to change my password as it doesnt appear to have anything to do with gearbox or amazon

List manage is a service to manage large email deployment. Which normally gets your mail server blacklisted otherwise.

Also they don't ask for old pw, so it can't be phishing.

By the way, Divinity Original Sin used the same system in their emails once, which made me actually send them a mail to complain, because list-manage obfuscates the actual source of the email which is why I can understand you being paranoid. But sadly, it's a standard.

I always find it kind of interesting when people "play games for the story."
Outside of a small handful, almost every game story is pretty weak and poorly presented.

When I'm out just for story, I read, which I probably do as much as game these days. Books, those have stories. Video games? They have ideas that sort of form into a bit of a story.

Generalization is never a good idea in such a topic ;p "Video games" is very far reaching, and includes visual novels too....

Now granted, there are not a lot of games with any semblance of good story.... but there are still enough to maybe play one every month (except SOME months, urgh)

Yeah, haha, but you agreed with me. I said "outside a small handful" and you said "not a lot of games."

Well... you are right. Whoops Actually I do agree with you even in another way.. I also read more books lately than I play story-driven games....

I mainly replied because there is a lot of reading in visual novels, so to me, they are like better books ;p

I still can't believe Ricochet outsold Skyrim.
Skyrim was on the top Steam seller list for like a year or more straight. Every single week.

Ricochet is and was part of basically ever single valve pack ever sold. Not to mention they gave it away for free during community events more than once
