democracy 3 was a reasonable game but you needed to mod out the peculiarities such as brain drain (when you had overwhelming tech advantage ), water shortage ( with perfect eco) etc.ill wait until a sale.

over the summer kids wanted to watch incredibles 2. I have a 30% discount card at the cinema (free with work phone contract). Even with the discount card (which also works of food and drink) it cost me 30 for 4 of us. Holy moses.

Film had been out about 2 weeks and the place was a ghost town, probably a dozen people.

as a sysadmin the only reason we use office is outlook. Nothing has the same integration as outlook. I would happily transition to openoffice or libreoffice.

problem is, we use sharepoint and outlook as a core business tool.

licensing is cheap compared to (as a reference) the likes of adobe or filemaker (cheaper than mssql for our web backend)

that lion is a bit mental. Our cat has a random number generator, if you stroke more than the random number (which may or may not be an integer) then you get bitten and scratched. If you are doing a tummy rub then expect full rear claws, front claws and teeth.

quinn, that wouldnt happen in france or Germany. i think the swiss have similar laws too. Wolfenstein had a censored version, there was a court case to allow a version of wolfenstein to be classed as a different kind of art - an exemption was applied I believe.

its not so much lawsuits but downright illegal to depict nazi glorification or symbolism in some european countries. This isnt just games but posters, clothing and even genuine wartime historical memorabilia. This might jot juat be because it is in a game but because they want to sell in european markets.

for vpn ive always used sstp. RRAS is easy to setup, it works with all out windows machines out of the box. even our android phones can use "vpn client" (android stock vpn client is nasty anyway). the downside is you need a windows server on your webhost (an extra 1.50 per month for me)

  • what is this about not being able to buy or carry a knife in the uk? it has never been legal to carry a knife (exemption for non locking small swiss army type or leatherman tool type). As not selling kitchen knifes, i bought a very large carving knife (a kitchen devil) last week in sainsburys. It is very sharp and very pointy, it was used to carve the sunday roast yesterday.

    I also own a shotgun, im part of a local shooting club. The kids have their own compound bow too. Im not sure ypu could gwt away with walking down the street with either before plod become very interested in you!

    Knife crime is non existant in the 100mile radius i live, so much so that it makes headline local news. I imagine london has gang issues and i guess that is the majority of knife issues. no bag searches or metal detectors in the schools here.

    whilst we love bees and spiders in our household, wasps are kill on sight. The kids are well versed on the procedure. Even bigger wasps nests are dealt with (although the actual poisoning is usually left to me as i can run quicker.

    wasps are just plain evil.

    it might have a bazillion DLC but at least you dont really need any to play the game. Ive had a lot of fun in PD2 and only have the humble bundle version.

    noone is forcing people to pay for vapourware. I havent and wont spend a penny on this until it is released AND ive seen it; this is the same as I did with Elite Dangerous.

    Those who have spent money on this, well I wish you luck. Those who have spent huge sums on this obviously have more money than they need in life.

    I agree with this system -- don't have time to grind for hours on end.

    I wish Elite Dangerous had something like this.

    ED does. wait for a gold rush, run it for a day. Dint worry about stuff again. Good for credits, materials and guardian stuff.

    then just play the game how you want too.

    new vegas was the last fallout with rpg elements for me, you could play properly with different factions or stay fairly neutral all the way through.

    ive been very lucky. I have owned a few android phones, all of them are still working.

    galaxy s2, still running as a music player and radio (tune in radio pro), it lives in the garden shed and is charged via solar battery bank.

    galaxy note 3. runs just fine and is a media player connected via HDMI to a tv in our study room. runs kodi (ironically using an android remote control)

    moto 'something'. daughters phone. looks like its been in the wars and works fine.

    my note 3. typing on it now. screen is in great condition, case has many cracks and dents, needs to live in a flip wallet as the battery bay cover is very badly damaged. has been dropped many times, used as baby teether, hammer, object of fruatration etc. pen works fine for daily use too, have gone through 2 nibs and 2 batteries.

    galaxy s8. paetners phone. only 9 months old and works fine.

    All have been flashed with other roms and have been rooted. Both our old iphones died with various faults. one switched off after apple logo, the other gets past apple logo and sits on a messed up screen.

    thing is, if you dont have accounts or logins then who cares? http is fine if you have no data to send to a site. if all you are doing is receiving non sensitive stuff then https isnt mandatory.
