1. Re: GOG Linux Sep 8, 2013, 10:09 Shok
 
Luckily, wine is pretty damn good for installing a fair number of GOG games. And even the native linux DOSBOX client helps.

I've been messing around in Ubuntu the past few weeks and it has come a long way as far as gaming support since the last time I tried it a few years ago. Still not worth giving up multi-booting a Win7 partition but even so there are some days I never even boot into Win7.

Ooo, that will be fun to sit in and push buttons.

ROFL so so true. At the end of the day that's all I can ever retain from the DCS games. My attention span is too short I guess. Five minutes and I'm like, "hrmm what about that other game I could be playing? *ALT-F4*"

Been using YNAB since March and love it. I still "cheat" some and spend more than I should but it has still helped for bill planning a ton.

Yeah, and they get more Origin installs which is probably more valuable to them in the long run. But whatever. I bought it for $1.01 and will not install Origin to play the one non-Steam game (Dead Space 3). I have such a backlog of games if I ever feel like playing it it won't be for five years and by then maybe EA and/or Origin will be history.

Still Origin free!

Hell, the only reason I would install Origin would be if EA came out with Outlaws 2...

Valve will have to orbitally nuke all online sales in EU. It's the only way to be sure the lawyers don't win.

YNAB personal budget software is on the flash sale until 1est today (Sunday). It's a steal at $15, I bought it in March on sale for $40 or so. The phone app is free, website has excellent support and tutorials, and finance info syncs via dropbox on all devices. It also can be run without steam. It has a different methodology than Quicken but is better I think.

GMG is having an encore of their 6 day sale for 30 hrs today. I bought the Walking Dead game (not 400 days) for $7.65 after 10% voucher (GMG10-VTTCS-VYH18). Also bought the new Civ5 expansion yesterday with a 25% off voucher to make it a little over $20. Not sure that one is still valid though.

I'm really gonna be broke this month once the STEAM sale comes around...

1. Re: Photoshop CC Jun 20, 2013, 22:01 Shok
 
I saw it earlier on the internets. I think Adobe wants it to be an easily defeated drm at this point. Eventually when they put the critical code server side they'll see how many "hobbyists" take the bait and subscribe. Either that or they are a company that learned something from the "online only" drm debacles of SimCity/Diablo/XBONE news stories so purposely made it very lightweight. Can you imagine what people would do if Adobe announced that xyz feature of photoshop is disabled until performance improvements could be patched because of drm server issues?
