Reminds me of this Twilight Zone episode:

Come to think of it, nearly everything reminds me of a Twilight Zone episode. Such a prophetic show in so many ways.

Good for you Australia. Kids and teens need to go outside more often and play cooperative, intellectual and harmless games like Rugby!

So I saw Interstellar at an IMAX theater. I'm searching and still haven't found the answer to this question, which seems to be a plothole in the story: If humans did indeed build the wormhole, how did they end up going to another galaxy, in order to later build the wormhole, without the wormhole in the first timeline? Or did they inhabit another local planet, then built the wormhole in order to change the timeline so they could go to another galaxy? It's either a paradox or a contradiction in the story of the movie. Of course, whether humans or aliens created the wormhole was merely conjecture by the main protagonist at separate points in the story.

The next day I saw the Penguins of Madagascar -- which I felt was a much more enjoyable movie.

Who the F is even asking for a case for 30 fps? Make an article and have a case for 120fps. 30, wtf?

The article trying to help a gamer play a poorly optimized game and/or use poorly optimized hardware for a more smooth experience. The title is a bit misleading. Summary: Read the entire article.

Why can't most game engine developers simply do what Carmack did -- allow you to set the FPS cap to what you want? com_maxfps ftw!

Police themselves? Where does one draw the line of 'police themselves' vs 'vigilantism' vs. 'gang activity' vs. 'revenge killing' etc and so forth? Allowing people to act out justice at their own discretion is dangerous and most probably will lead to anarchy.

Just because the news shows a few extreme cases of bad cops means nothing other than the boosting ratings and advertising dollars. Most police are highly civilized and hard-working people that must tolerate the worst that society has to offer. Full respect for the police. I can't imagine living securely in a society without them. The same goes for firefighters, paramedics, crossing guards, librarians and all other civil service workers.

Next year I'll be staring on converting my lawns into wild/rock gardens and vegetable gardens with raised beds, trellises, etc. Lawns are just a useless environmental nightmare.


I hate yard-work as well; especially, since the likelihood of my hanging out in the yard vs. going to the beach is pretty much non-existent.

Most of the people I know who do it are single (or have very understanding spouses). I quit Asheron's Call well more than a decade ago, before I got married. Played some Eve Online casually while married, but that's actually a game you can solo an hour at a time if you want.

Come to think of it, you're right. Marriage reduced my gaming time by a huge percent. Beyond business, I just realized almost everything else I do is because of her.

They have amateurs there in the corporate office? I've been in business for quite a long time, one of the first things I learned was when writing up a 'special offer' to always conjure up a policy of restrictions based on risk assessments -- potential abuse of said offer, limitations of said offer, etc.

What is the profile of typical MMO player? Besides exercising and leisurely reading books (I suppose it's a question of priority), I can rarely find more than 20 to 30 minutes of free time to play a video game.

When did the trend toward people paying for alpha and beta versions begin? I recall the days when developers were begging to find people willing to be testers, later to provide a free or discounted copy of the full version.

There was a time in the past when the developer treated alpha and beta testers with immense respect and admiration for their dedication, patience and willingness to tolerate constant change; often giving them written credit in the game's final release.

So I decided, what the heck, I already have a PC, don't need a 'hardcore' gaming console -- keyboard and mouse for the win. So I setup the Wii U and started playing Super Mario 3D World. The game is actually quite fun and addictive. I never thought I'd like this type of game.

It was fairly cold today, 68 F. But should return to 72 F in a few days.

I'm curious if the hybrid operates well in cold weather. I've heard different stories as to battery performance. Eventually, I want to get a Tesla or (ideally) a Google driver-less car -- if they ever mass produce them.

How much cheaper is a ridesharing vs. say renting a car? I use sites such as Rental Car Momma and find some really great deals. Other than the occasional hop on a bus or subway, I just can't imagine having someone driving me around -- gives me the creeps.

Hmm .. someone sent me an early Xmas present and it's a Wii U. Should I keep this thing or return it? I'm more into FPS and TPS action / sci-fi games.
