eee pc was shite but mass produced. It was true that olpc was sunk by intel, they could do the enrire project as a tax write off and they did (effectively). Plus, you have to see that most of the target markets for olpc are corrupt, it is naive to assume that without kickbacks it was going to work. Intel got (more) inroads into Mexico and South America plus India by doing their classmate.

I cant see gygax having decent unpublished work though. He isnt renowned for rereleasing stuff over the years, so if it wasnt released in the first place I wouldnt hold much hope.

youd fuck a guy in the ass and not have the common decency to give him a reach around.

my ford converse plus is fine. easy to navigate and use. the reversing camera screen is integrated into the rear view mirror so you get an overlay in the corner. bluetooth just works and the speech input is a bit quirky but works for fiddly things such as setting temperatures. it doesnt always get the phone book entries correct so i wouldn't trust it to dial. the two dpads on the steering wheel are in a good place. cruise control and adaptive distance cruise are on separate thumb buttons. setting the clock is menu,clock,set then up/down/left/right.

overall it just works and helps rather than be a hindrance.

ipads in schools are a nightmare. we had a mac server linking to active directory. apple server isnt mature enough to run standalone. AppleTV was bad at linking to projectors. no such interactive screens existed and promethean and smart support was pretty much non existant.

storage was limited to cloud only. nice idea for maybe 20 students but for 2000 think again. especially when it comes to backup and restore.

most apps require the students input in setting up, righto, thats gonna work isnt it. 3rd party apps are needed just to secure ipads and setup a classfull for identical rollout. again good for maybe 20 ipads, dream on for 500.

apple has no idea how education environments actually work in reality.

yup. i gave up after 4, was a good series but the dlc were basically win modules with silly buildings. it would have been better to fix the bugs and improve sandbox late game issues.

So why use this instead of Unity or UE4?

I am asking honestly here, what's the point of a CPU engine?

Same reason we teach python, small basic (rather thsn full fat .net) and play with raspberry pis at school. they dont need much computing power to teach on. they get the principles across and can be used in computer labs without gfx cards.

elite dangerous is one of the cheaper good vr software. you can pick it up for a fiver quite often. it plays very well in VR as long as you have a hotas.

News Comments > Expired Cert Behind Rift Outage
29. Re: Expired Cert Behind Rift Outage Mar 8, 2018, 15:19 Armengar
 
i have a company code signing cert. it is used to sign my .net work. it has a finite 2 year lifespan. it is also set to update when there is 3 months left on it. these apps are web apps and connected to the internet. it would be commercial suicide for me to use a 2 year code signing cert for offline apps. there is no need to use them for offline apps either.

this also means the oculus will brick itself if the company decideds not to support itself....

tracking? whut? thats some serious tinfoil hattery there.

you get tracked more by using google.

as for shovelware etc, i admit i havent played any of them but i did look at some reviews. none of them looks shovelware, they are fleshed games and have other games as predecessors.

they arent triple AAA games but that isnt the point of humble bundle is it?

sounds like a plan but will be griefed to hell and back. ill stick with mobius ta.

the other problem will be the lack of dedicated people. once the dedicated people go on the trip, the bubble will lose those dedicated people and the inner systems will go to shit.

ill plan a break from the game when this goes out....
