Also one of the few times in a game where you can play as a bad-ass Native American, who happens to be a time traveling warrior (Tal'Set, AKA Turok). Hells yeah.

Prey was also bad-ass, loved every minute of it.

I'm interested in the X-Com EW Long War mod but not sure I want to subscriber to Nexus at a fee to test it out. Has anyone here played it? Is it worth the fee to get the latest beta? Thanks in advance.

Payment is NOT REQUIRED. I downloaded it from there without paying a single penny. Can't remember how, but I did.

"perfect ambush" Lolz? Half the team got wiped clean, you call that a perfect ambush? In the original I called it perfect when not a single one of my units even got SHOT AT.

I'm hoping that someone hosts the information in an easily searchable format.

Yeah because not infringing stupid unwritten CULT-ural rules that infringe free will is better than making sure free will is protected. Makes perfect sense.

In other news Google: "Android more stable than ios"

And just like with after 9/11, first they'll target terrorists, then they'll broaden it to whoever the fuck doesn't agree with them, like peacefull eco-activists or regular joe bloes who put a dent in any business's profits from your run off the mill peacefull protesting.

Ban that shit. Speech alone can't infringe free will. Restricting speech always infringe's free will. It's simple enough.

I wonder what the enterprise versions does here? A home user may or may not care all that much, but a lot of companies will care and I'd have to think MS knows that and then I think the enterprise version may have greatly reduced tracking.

You are correct. Contrary to Home or Pro, if you set Telemetry to '0' via the registry, Enterprise will actually stop sending any data to MS. Home or Pro will still send data at 'Enhanced' level at the '0' setting.

BTW, I have read of at least one guy who has blocked Microsoft IPs via his router so it shouldn't be too hard to google which IPs those are. It's probably the most effective way to block any spying from happening at the very source level.

In a funny way that is saying Corps have rights where people don't.

It will be like adblocker. Most don't use it, dumb. The same savvy people will be figuring out how to get Enterprise. To MS it doesn't matter too much now since most won't do it, but long term word of mouth could be interesting.

Or do you think we should be setting our routers to block MS IP's? That way I guess it won't matter if data is being sent (assuming no performance loss) it just hits the wall and evaporates.

Indeed, it sends the message that corps privacy should be respected while individuals? FUCK EM!

CORRECTION: "Hitchhiking Robot Lasts Just Two Weeks in US Because US CITIZENS Are Terrible"

It crossed Canada and many European countries including Germany without a scratch. US proving once again how barbaric and savage this country really is.

You might want to hold out a bit, people are reporting absent driver support for ethernet hardware on many old mobos. Like LGA 1156's, I for one's got a P7P55D and I don't even have ethernet drivers for Win 8 yet even if its only 5 years old and the CPU on it ( i5-750 ) is as fast as the current mid-end to low-end processors, so Win 10, heh, not a chance, stupid ASUS.

I have the same board and CPU. Don't rely on ASUS (or any mother board manufacturer) for drivers, just go to the source for drivers. Here are LAN Drivers for Win 8 right here.

Thanks a bunch! I had forgotten about that, mind you, I might've searched more thoroughly wouldn't I had still been on Win 7. I'll remember that come Win 10's launch tho.

23. 'Ad-blocking is the biggest external threat to online games journalism' and Are ad-blockers legal? Jul 23, 2015, 12:54 Simon Says
 
My main beef with ads is the bandwidth it sucks like a vampire, especially the auto loading video ads -_-. I pay 100$ for 20 gigs per month, if they don't want me to use an ad/flash blocker. Then make all ads NOT COUNT toward monthly bandwidth usage. Otherwise they can go to hell and I'll keep blocking.

The BBC isn't giving them to every 7 year old for free. The tax payers are paying for them.

Still better than the usual agenda to cut public funding into uselessness then privatize everything once people whine. Or cut social welfare to redirect to corporate welfare through subsidies and/or tax breaks. You know, privatize the profits, remove responsibilities for corps and clean your hands of the impacts of externalities, socialize the debt and dump all the responsibilities/externalities on the citizens.

Hehe, yeah.

Putin is not exactly a beacon of democracy, privacy, or freedom, so it's pretty easy to do.


And who is in the West? We're just as bad if not worse because of the lies and damn lies.

Agreed Cutter... Whenever I see or hear "freedom" in the west it translates to "freedumb" in my mind. The freedumb to infringe the freedumb of others. Western FREEDUMB!

Step 2, Putin requests all unflattering information about him be removed from search engines.

Step 3, Silicon Avatar, unsuccessful at re-enacting the Red Scare, goes to sulk in a corner.
