Bullshit like Secret or Fourspring should just be banned outright. Problem solved.

Why?

Because it's the job of a society to protect the weakest... what kind of argument is "then don't use it" .. that can only come from someone with ZERO understanding of children. If that kinda logic would work on them the world would be a better place indeed....

Needless Danger? It's called life, not everyone just wants to sit at home in a safety cocoon.

mmm...safety cocoon... nice and warm...

If that cocoon had internet, OLED screen, 2nd generation consumer VR goggles and a PC I wouldn't mind..

No spoilers, but the story has a great set up, great payoff, and a realistic, but inspirational ending.

Well, I will not dispute the article is expertly written, and the guy acted heroically in the end, but holy shit, these type of 'heroism in the face of needless danger' stories always depress and infuriate me.

It's like that story of the guy who went off hiking on his own over dangerous terrain, fell into the chasm with a boulder and had to cut his own arm off to survive. Yes, it's an amazing story of survival, but what the fuck, common sense?

Anyway that's my take, glad you guys enjoyed the article and found it inspirational, even. Stories like this make me want to start a habit of drug or alcohol abuse.

Well, I agree that the guy who went hiking alone and lost his arm was taking unnecessary risks, but as the article points out you're more likely to die being struck by lightning than in a skydiving accident. It's a safe activity, relatively speaking, and the company had a good safety record. What's amazing is the what that guy did when faced with the situation he was in.

But there are a lot more lightning strikes than sky-divers Anyhow.. crazy story

How do you propose someone defends against a situation where he's put in jail because of a false judgment? By hoping?

1) Class action lawsuits are civil suits. Someone being put in jail is a criminal suit.

2) Fighting against a criminal suit that wrongly put you in jail is done through an appeals process, so it is considered part of the original criminal suit. This isn't the same as starting/joining a new (civil) suit.

Ergo, Latin, you're comparing apples and chunks of coal.

That said, it seems there's no difference as far as most states are concerned.

Well, granted it was a really bad comparison, but for both civil and criminal justice systems you need a lawyer, and thus you need to be allowed to take a lawyer.

No idea really how US system works, but if a civil lawsuit goes like this because they can't deliver a LETTER to someone in prison then it seems the justice system has worse problems than just bad postal service.

I wasn't aware you could enter into class-action lawsuits from jail.

Why wouldn't you be able to?

Because many of your rights are curtailed or even denied while you are in jail, and it makes little sense that you'd be allowed to sue someone/something while incarcerated.

The story also includes word that this suit might have been settled a month ago with Gearbox dropped from the proceedings, except one of the plaintiffs could not be located to approve. It was later learned this was because he was incarcerated in Pennsylvania.

And what little respect I had for the US just dropped another point...

(I don't like PewDiePie much, IMHO he crosses over the line between silly and stupid, but he's certainly successful.)

I blame the Jersey Shore generation that thinks the crap on MTV is "Real Life" (see what I did there).

I don't know 1 person that actually knows who the F or what the F pewdiepie is. (or maybe who watches it - cause I would have to have a come to Jesus with them) I watched a few moments of a few videos. I couldn't stand it. (recently found out what and who it was)

And that guy makes money!? WTF!?

I guess The Youngs eat that shit up?

No accounting for taste... I heard of it and watched a few minutes, but I would never watch it with regularity or ever again at that. It's like batman says, crossing the line to full metal retard level. But hey, that sums up MTV pretty damn well so maybe there is a market for it...

I can't play this game because it requires I prioritize UDP traffic on port range 32000-65535.

Given how by default my traffic is Bulk, and is selectively elevated for each game, I cannot just give high priority to 33535 freaking ports.

Terrible and pointless coding decision on their part.

This bothers me in a lot of games... but what do you mean with "bulk" ? All my traffic is priority, some things are just higher priority (Websites/Stream) and some are highest priority (VOIP/IPTV)

What exactly are you doing with your traffic? Or is it your ISP?

Tablet's have probably reached the point of saturation; everyone who wanted one has bought one. Same thing that happened with flat screen HD TVs.

What you call market saturation is in reality a market that waits for the "NEXT BIG THING" , and tablets are not that thing yet. Also I highly doubt global markets are crashing.

MTG 2014 + slightlymagic.net And you get all the good sides of MTG + a near complete card library (sadly no MP) but a superb AI and you can build your own decks properly (with external deck editor).

And a bit of MTG 2013 + slightlymagic.net for the advanced game modes ,p

Logitech G Unveils World’s Fastest Gaming Mouse

Now if only they could put that tech in the best "mouse" ever created: The M570. Why thumb balls haven't achieved a wider adoption, I'll never understand. It's so much better in every conceivable way. It's faster, it's more accurate, easier on the hand/wrist, you never have to worry about running out of desk/mousepad, etc. Oh, and the lag-free RF wireless? Fuck yes! Do this for my mouse, and I'll buy 10, and hand them out to friends. Otherwise, it's just another stupid gimmick.

No no.. the best mouse ever created is the mx518 (Ps.: The mx518 already tracks as fast as I can move.. maybe I just move slower ,p)

I've been saying this since Steam arrived on the scene (and has taken off) but everyone seems to think it's the second coming or something. Maybe I'm just showing my age or maybe this generation doesn't really understand what "owning" something means, but we are headed in a really bad direction with the way software and games are heading.

Steam in particular is a non issue, because you can emulate steam You just have to store the patched games in some way on your PC. I get what you mean, but if you have the will, you can actually "own" any game. As long as it resides 100% on your storage. Games like D3 and all other fake MMO's are the real issues. But then you never owned them begin with, you just bought access
