6. What about the terrible new video quality? Nov 12, 2013, 01:38 eRe4s3r
 
Because the change nobody seems to be talking about, is that Youtube broke encoding and offers terrible quality in 720p. With clear encoding artifacts and blocking. (Wasn't there before!)

I can't even watch let's plays anymore properly unless I go to 1080p (which loads about as fast as a rock rolls uphill)

more than that, they need 90% under priviliged slaving away or the entire capitalist bullshit construct would fall apart.

Remind me again why we should stop climate change. Let it kill humanity. Nothing of value would be lost to the universe.

But nothing you do will protect you from flooding. Not living there seems like a better choice.

I suppose someone should tell all the people in southeast Asia who live in stilt housing that's the case.

Topsider Hurricane Proof Houses

Stilt Housing

"This is a travel video showcasing the incredible Kampong Ayer (also known as the world's largest water stilt village) located in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei. http://nomadicsamuel.com : Kampong Ayer, or the Water Village (Malay: Kampong Ayer) is an area of Brunei's capital city Bandar Seri Begawan that is situated after the Brunei Bay. 39,000 people live in the Water Village. This represents roughly ten percent of the nation's total population. All of the Water Village buildings are constructed on stilts above the Brunei River.
Built entirely of stilt houses and wooden w
alkways, this cluster of 42 villages housing more than 30,000 inhabitants is the world's largest water village. Some people refer to it as the 'Venice of the East'."

Gentlemen, there are plenty of much cheaper, much more eco-friendly, viable alternatives for housing in any of those sorts of zones. Plenty!

But flooding damages the infrastructure all the same. What's the point having a house that takes 0 damage, when everything around you is destroyed? Most Phillipines will die because of sickness and starvation (and the inevitable riots and crimes caused by that). You could argue that your idea makes survival rates better, but if those few survivors have food only for themselves..... ehm.. yeah.

No, the smarter idea is to not live in a region that's hit by the strongest Taifuns all the time. ^^

On that note: I don't disagree with you, of course there are better housing solutions that are more secure and much more eco friendly. The real question is why you would build them in a region that's hit by massive storms every year. There is such a thing as "moving out of the way" and it's a lot cheaper and eco friendly.

Ps.: Check wikipedia if you don't believe me, every 2 to 3 years a massive storm hits the phillipines.

Windows is dying.

7 is good for another 10 years.

Agreed, long enough to skip the turd that has been floating around most recently and hope that Windows 9 isn't more of the same.
MS's track record is good win, bad win, alternating, so its not a bad call to wait for win 9.

The cycle resets with new CEO's... so it will be bad again with Windows 9

Just connect to steam with a euro ip, its what i do with 99% of all the releases that come out but vpn to the states (in germania).

Its the exact opposite situation for me with Xcom Enemy Within, and you can be damn sure i'm unlocking that puppy as soon as its unlockable

May I ask what VPN specifically you are using?

Boleh VPN

It has connections to USA/Canada/Netherlands/UK/Germany/Switzerland/Luxembourg/Sweden/France/Hong Kong

the company is based out of Malaysia, they also do not keep ip connection details, and several users share the same ip when connecting, which makes it almost impossible to track someone down for something just like say torrenting (which is a big no no in germany btw where i am...). I've had no problems with Netflix and unlocking anything on steam. I'm on a 30mbit down 10mbit up connection and i get a steady 25-30 down and 10 up, just about anywhere i connect. Up until NFL turned it off for everybody i was getting free NFL game pass by connecting to the netherlands (but once it hit week 9 they stopped the freebies for netherlands/new zealand etc. the countries that didnt have an nfl deal) I'm guessing they'll turn it back on next year for the 1st half of the season.

If your interested here's my sign up link: bolehvpn i'll get some free time and so will you (wont cost any different for you, if you do or dont use it, just more free time).

Anyways i really recommend it, they've been excellent.

Thanks for the link We'll see if there is ever a case where a delayed release / region block bothers me enough to use it

Ah HAH! So thats why Rebirth isnt in the top 10

It's more that most fans buy it directly from Egosoft's store (I did, for example) so those sales don't show up in Steam's top 10. Also, for whatever reason, a large section of the X fans seem wildly opposed to Steam.

Mhh I bought from Egosoft's store and got a Steam key the minute I paid via paypal + soundtrack DL back a month ago.

Maybe Steam just doesn't count these activations anymore as sales, because indeed, steam get's mostly nothing from that purchase

I am sure my single preorder makes all the difference lol
I am looking forward to the player feedback on here.

You can rest assured you will see at least mine come the 16th.. they said the Steam Countdown is not when it will unlock (It will unlock earlier, most likely midnight on the 14th) or thereabouts.

And I will not hold back if it has problems. I loved X3 and I hated it at the same time I have it pre-loaded and all....

When will these places in hurricane zones start building housing designed for hurricanes, like domes where the winds can't catch onto flat surfaces. Stilt housing, etc. Building boxes on the ground in these places is ultimately a waste of resources and money.

dude, there's only so much you can build for. erecting housing to stand up to this giant bitch would've been prohibitively expensive, even for us.

Straw bale geodisic domes

Yeah, a couple of grand for some straw, wattle, and labour is just so much more expensive then the boxes we live in. Rolleyes

You people may want try and do some *actual* research on this stuff before shooting it down because it's clear you know *nothing* about the topic. There are better, cheaper ways to build hosing for flood planes, hurricane and tornado alleys. All governments and people do now is throw good money after bad every-time one of these tragedies occur. And what makes it worse is precisely because damage on this scale is entirely avoidable. That's ok, you just keep thinking inside the box though.

Indeed, geodesic house design is nothing new. It's been conceptualized as a 100% environment proof building method.... with proper technology, an entire village could be inside such a dome. With just dirt and clay, you can at least protect a part of your house from wind and debris damage.

But nothing you do will protect you from flooding. Not living there seems like a better choice.

My thoughts on Need for Speed Rivals.

1) Is that NFS 13 or 14? Because, somehow, the game looks familiar.

2) The level of detail as presented would be okay (on previous generation consoles).

3) The clip quality at 1080p is probably the worst I've ever seen on youtube.

4) They could reduce the level of realism further if they made the cars fly - permanently.

5) Enjoy the game, console kids...

Devilish

You can thank youtubes new encoding settings. Which are a god damn mess. Look around and you will find many let's players complaining about this.

It's not just girls... It's also little pussy bitch males who were raised by a single mother with no male role model. >:\ Man up, ladies.

Whoa, dude. WTF? I don't think that brush was broad or callous enough.

Also, John Connor was raised by his mom, and he took out all of Skynet. Just sayin'

John Connor was a movie character, and his mother was a mannish dyke. She filled both holes roles. Just sayin'. XD

You're a crass ass. Fine, here's a partial list of successful men raised by their mothers.
Presidents Obama and Clinton
Stephen Colbert
Samuel L. Jackson
John Lennon
Jack Nicholson
Shaq
Al Pacino
Keanu Reeves
Jon Stewart
Kanye
Ah, so because there are some exceptions due to good parenting (and most likely because they had other important adults in their lives as well), that automatically negates all the thousands of cases where single mothers were ill-equipped to properly raise their children in a way that resulted in a relatively stable and well-adjusted adult. I'm glad fallacies don't count. Good to know we have professional psychologists on this site to express their expertise.

What bullshit is this.. i mean seriously. If you look at parenting you will find the worst parents are not single parents but rather helicopter parents. And these are usual stable families of both parents. Most children are also shaped by their first 10 years and that means mostly female teachers for the early years (which is FAR worse than single parenting of any gender)

Also you are throwing another fallacy in there, by assuming there is such a thing as good parenting. 99.99% of all parents suck at their job. Which is why the world is going down the drain.

That list also including Obama and Clinton is a nice joke

I have 13 chrome instances, each using more than 50mb and constantly writing data to disk.. so no idea wtf it is doing, but it is doing annoying things!

Ok, so Chrome does this, too? I didn't have it open when I wrote that. Frustrating. Yeah, I have 15 open, ranging from 11MB to 129MB.

FireFox is one nice, extremely large instance.

So yeah, I tracked the issue down because this didn't let me any peace, these many instances are weird enough, but why the hell do they constantly write to disk even if you don't do anything and... what I found is pretty damn shocking

Chromium (ALL VERSIONS) have a bug which causes 3 to 4 writes a second. It is unknown (apparently even to the "devs") what causes this.

https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=52663

If you got a SSD, GET RID OF THIS APPLICATION NOW It slowly kills your SSD. Bug is unfixed. This is why you can see constant IO Write in procmon for the chrome process even on an empty tab.

This means, Chrome kills your battery life if you got a laptop. And it kills your SSD slowly but steadily (not just your SSD, no drive chrome sits on will ever spin down with this bug)

test test :p

So yeah, Firefox 25 does NOT do this. Wow.. sorry Chrome, but this is a BUG i will not accept.
