The CESG is part of the British Government Communication Headquarters (GCHQ)

And as such, this research is completely worthless.

OpenBSD has the problem that nobody believes in the security of monolithic *nix anymore. Especially not OpenSSH after one can assume the relevant standards body is essentially NSA pwned.

If you are truly paranoid, you should be using Tails https://tails.boum.org/ anyway...

The USA made a global weapon system out of the Internet and Obama doesn't want to disarm it, that's all there is to this. Of course, now China is motivated to be much more aggressive as well. And other nations will begin militarizing the internet.

hah.. and we thought Deus EX was science fiction.

Of course, because we all know that corporations have the best interests of their employees at heart.

Well, I mean, he did use the qualifier "useless."

What America needs is fewer useless unions and more good, lean unions that work with employers to achieve fairness and balance for the employees and the employers.

Heh... I don't see how such a balance could ever be achieved. The goals are in direct fundamental opposition. Worker's with rights are expensive workers....

Plenty of industries have this balance. Both sides pull, and meet somewhere in between.

The UAW fell apart because power wasn't balanced and parties started getting entitled and vindictive. A lot of the US auto industry's issues at that time stem from this, but all of it can be traced back to awful management. Bad products, poorly made, with a union pulling too hard causing worse management and worse decisions, which ceded more power to the union, etc.

But, in other industries, the workers and the corporation find compromise that benefits everyone.

But you are assuming that is a balance, when it's just a stagnating power struggle. I've got no clue how it is in the USA, but in Germany the big Unions don't do a whole lot for you. Except fuck you over because you live 500m next to a imaginary border inside your country, where the same work is suddenly paid 1 per hour less. And why? Because that's what your Union defined as contract framework, whether members want it or not. Since Unions only need a simple 50% agreement of their members, the less populated areas where the real problems are, can never profit from it.

I don't think Unions are useless, but if there is a balance to be had, no union I know about ever had it.

So its just a unified SDK? Maybe even something akin to an API, which will basically enable 3d functionality with every game that supports it?

Unified API might be all that's really needed to make VR support widespread. It would be epic failure if everyone did their own thing and made errors that others had already fixed again and again. Kinda like console developers and FOV....

I'd love me some innovation in pc/couch input space, but, I'm looking at that owltroller and for shit cannot imagine how I'm going to press those buttons with my thumbs on haptic pads. Obviously this is made for different species ....

That's because those pads were designed by retards who never played a game in their life. Touchpad in the middle is completely useless, you can't press it without taking an entire hand of all controls. Yay for devolution. And haptic buttons don't work, you can't feel the buttons without pressing them, is why real keyboards are still the number 1 control utility in the world

Oh well

DX performance was higher than mantle with blur off..... And DX isn't what you should be comparing mantle against... Opengl is.... Still not impressed nor convinced that this will make the boring mess that is 4x any more fun... Or cause there to be decent home world style games....

But isn't it always the same game essentially? I mean it has a set procedure and progression so even with random elements it ends up being always the same no? Even more so when all you do is balance scripted predetermined events around that are bound to historic progression....

This is gonna fail so epicly.... how are they going to come up with the budget for a vast wasteland sandbox game? Essentially Midwinter needs a scale on par with Skyrim or Fallout to really work.....

They want to
realize Mike's ambitious design
and that is impossible without a shit-ton of money.

I did not follow this game at all... so someone enlighten me. Is part 1 self containing, or is it literally only HALF the story.

I give them kudos for going on Early Access though...

Ps.: Yeah I edited this again. I sounded like I was complaining, but really I am just wondering whether Part 1 is episodic in nature (ie, it has start,middle,end) or whether part 1 is more like.. start and 50% of the middle...

my nose for projects that do not deserve my support seems to be right every single time.

If that's your attitude, I doubt they want your money.

Also, you sound like Cutter.


If not wanting broken games in exchange for money makes me sound like Cutter that's a curse I will GLADLY carry I don't give a damn if they are patched later or if it's a 3 man indy studio that got Kickstarted to make the most unique gameplay experience on the planet. Honest developers would have made the game Early Access. And not release it broken and then say they are sorry. What the hell are you supposed to do with a sorry from a developer? Can you play that? Does that give you back your money and wasted time?
