Hey Franken, how about you worry about the US and Britain's promise to Ukraine? That's a hell of a serious issue that NO ONE is reporting here in the US...

Obama will as usual do nothing... even when there's an 'international law' that Clinton signed...

Not that I want him to, but he's such a terrible representative of our country it's sickening. But ya, he'll just keep being "deeply concerned" or "strongly discouraged" or some other useless statement he makes as he sits back and tries to forget he's in shoes way to big for his tiny feet.

I don't get throttled. And if I did I'd get a VPN. Problem easily solved.

Only Joe Layman might get affected. But I doubt Joe Laymen is running Netflix (or any streaming service) on all his big-screened TVs. And if he is... then he or someone he knows would know how to circumvent any throttling.

However I wish Netflix would have taken a stand. Simply publish 'trying' a high speed vpn and see if any problems go away. If they go away, your carrier is the problem.

I guess we'll never know if people like Axis and Max are just nothing but trolls or really that delusional and stupid. Either way, what a waste of life.

Let replay this again, and see who really fits your quote...


Morning Metaverse


  • Netflix to Pay Comcast to End Traffic Jam. Thanks Ant via Slashdot.

  • Venezuelan government shuts down internet in wake of protests. Thanks HARDOCP.


  • Cutter says:
    "Man, don't you just love the American "free market". Yessir, all that competition driving better service at lower prices certainly is something to see! Oh wait, that's what happening in all those "socialist" countries! Hrm, well how is that possible?!"

    So Cutter puts down the US for free markets, and yet the very next article shows what a government controlled market does - shuts you the fuck down on any whim and you can't do jack shit about it.

    Course I can't say this type of stuff is unusual for Cutter, but it's certainly worth quoting again as a prime example of hypocrisy and ignorance in action.

    That's completely false. The vast majority 'live' off-base among the communities they serve. Bases have minor amenities; you get necessities and some recreation. The vast majority live their lives off base unless they are in a war zone.

    I don't know a single right-leaning veteran who comes out of the military as a leftist, and I know hundreds - that's complete crap. The opposite of your statement tends to happen. The military is everything most leftists tend to avoid like the plague. And yes, it's authoritative as expected when you sign the dotted line for however many years you want -- and the best life experience you can get paid to do if you can handle it.

    Sepharo is half right.

    I don't know what bases you've stayed in, but as a former Air Force brat I know Osan Air Base (in South Korea) has more than just the "basic necessities". I mean, hell, they even had a school and hospital. Pretty nice Tennis courts too. The base in Osan was just like the one my Dad worked in at Fort Devens, MA down to the AAFES convenience store. A guy could live pretty comfortably just within the base.

    I also think you're over-estimating the extent military people "immerse" themselves in country they're based in. Most guys in Osan only went as far as downtown to buy bootlegs and meet women. I knew a few guys who actually lived in Korean apartments, but the extent of the Korean they knew was hello and goodbye. You might get a few more thoughtful guys out there who learn some of the history and culture, but the vast majority had as much knowledge as a tourist on a week-long trip. They do bring back a lot of cool souvenirs though.

    Be prepared to be called a liar. Axis knows better than you.

    I'm not afraid to state my life experiences Seph, and however that translates to your ego is up to you.

    But Shin is also half right - there's usually a main base in the country that has more major facilities, while the majority of bases have basics. More to the point, you don't need to "be" Korean to understand what life in Korea is like when the country and its people surround you 24/7 -- as opposed to sitting in your basement reading blogs.

    And Shin speaks from a family point of view. The vast majority join young and unmarried -- and they take every chance to 'live' outside that base as often as possible -- as I'm sure you can imagine as being or having been young once yourself. When I was that person, I did my best to avoid "PaPa Military Base" babysitting me...

    What planet are you from Red? People loved Thief 3. It was a great followup to the first 2 from story to mechanics/gameplay.

    Ah no, overall it was panned by the Thief purists. I did enjoy it myself. I'll still wait for more insight in the next couple days. But the writer stating what they did actually did say something.

    No, it was very well received. There will always be pockets of noisy angry people who make waves because they can.

    Thief 3 improved upon the original formula in all ways without eviscerating what made the originals compelling, and that sentiment was by far the largest piece of the opinionated pie at the time.

    So many of you liberals have absolutely no idea what you ask for, cause you have no idea what it's like outside your basement and lofty ideals. Go join the forces, do something for our country, experience the world, and come back wise.

    The forces don't go elsewhere and make a living for themselves in a different culture.

    Their time is paid for by the government/state. (Government employment : Pretty much the most leftist occupation you can have)
    They don't have to experience life in other places.
    They live on bases, in a different world than the nation they're located in.

    -scheherazade

    Spoken like a basement liberal.

    Libertarian, actually.
    That's right of center, FYI.

    -scheherazade

    Well then a basement libertarian, but certainly not one who has experienced the military overseas. I am a libertarian who served overseas and I certainly wouldn't have made those comments due to my views and world experience. The military has historically been on the right for many good reasons - most of which they are responsible people doing responsible work and have a profound love for their country they serve. Quite the opposite of much spin you hear from the liberal core... : )


    I think his point was more that they live in their own unique "world". That's undeniably true.

    My own anecdotal evidence would say that people I went to school with who went to war came back "lefter" than they left. That includes independent or completely disenchanted as well. But many of them went in strongly conservative. Exposure to cultures (good and bad aspects) other than your own tends to do that in my opinion.

    If we're speaking metaphorically, the military operates much more like communism (the actual in practice authoritative kind) than other political philosophies. You've got a command structure, people are assigned jobs, and they do those jobs to the best of their ability usually for no reward but to the benefit of the whole.

    For young war vets, I know 6 of them and 2 are pretty close friends. Like I said, they came back less "conservative". It's hard to pinpoint because it of course depends on the way we use terms like "left" "right" "conservative" "liberal" "libertarian" whatever. But in my opinion they left with opinions like, "Rah war yeah! Turn it into a glass pit! Republicans yeah!"

    A pitiful few would fit that grossly liberal assumption - you gave yourself away to those who would know better.

    Americans don't join the military with arms pumping and war on their minds hoping to go into combat and kill someone or get themselves killed. They join in hopes to have a better life, get a free education, get job skills, get out of a bad situation, travel, etc. And if they are called to defend their country they gladly will with their life.

    There's life experiences out there for you guys - leave the forums and go get them.

    The problem is most people don't want some old IP repackaged into whatever appears to be 'the new fad'.

    So when Thief becomes Assassins Creed meets Batman Arkham Asylum, we have no interest - we expect nothing more than 'an improvement on the already fantastic formula' with new assets and some twists to make it stand on it's own.

    And if they cannot do that, then don't try to fool us by using the IP.

    I agree with you Nethead, I don't think consoles need them either. However I don't play consoles for any reason other than casual.

    I was speaking about what 'acceptable' settings PC users should expect since he stated a benchmark, because I find 60 frames per second a hindrance when it comes to a competitive edge, fine for casual.

    Well considering the Farmers Almanac is more accurate than the government 'climate scientists', I'd hope that statistic is correct -- unfortunately it's not.

    If you bothered to read a bit further in that quoted wiki or do your own homework, you'd learn the US funds a far greater percentage than you'd like to pretend.

    But recognize that I spoke quite specifically how the world works when it comes to "funding" research, regardless of percentages or statistics. You fly the way the government wind blows or you dry up - that doubles for our current two-facing govt...

    Acceptable is whatever resolution you like at 60 fps.

    Expected should be 80 FPS+ on a capable monitor..

    However since the LCD replaced the CRT years ago and made everyone Hz/FPS dumb, only the old clanners or information-hungry noobs have capable monitors pumping out the required frames for a proper session.

    We still hear the 'eyes can only see blah blah frames blah blah' but that is just a shining indication of raw ignorance to those in the know when it comes frames in video gaming.

    I already stated your followup points long before you repeated them, so if anything you are agreeing with facts I pointed out long ago. No one is arguing their merits are they? Anyone? No, no one.

    Your original statement, however, was dead wrong, even taking out "have to' still makes it a complete misconception. Please look up what 'misconception' means, then report back your findings if you have anything new to add.
