Nice, according to police the OTHER vehicle was at fault for the collision (shocking), but Uber is suspending testing because of course this will be bad publicity for autonomous cars.

Even if the other driver was at fault, its also a question of determining if a human driver in the uber car would have seen it coming and reduced speed or intervened in any other way. (and yes I know there is a driver in the uber car but I can imagine he will not be as focused on driving as a real driver).

I don't understand how that "game mode" article got published.

There's no system specs, no "how much other shit is running concurrently" specs... no lots of stuff that would make it a compelling article. Instead it's just: "the new feature totally sucks /article".

I'm imagining that if you're running on an already tuned gaming PC, then you're probably not going to see any improvement. However, if you're playing on a bloated system with 40 extra non-system processes running in the background, then this *might* make some difference? Especially (mostly) for RAM-starved systems.

Again, all I care about is if it affects the DPC latency, but I'll just test that myself when it comes out, lest I be seduced by the technical mastery of this article.

Well look at it from another point of view. MS has been hyping this feature as games (some site say mostly windows store games) run faster.

Now if MS would have said it gives you faster games on an old pc or on a new pc with more then 40 services running then I agree with you, but they did not.

Its simply a before and after on the same PC test and it turned out disappointing after all the hype about it.

My Windows 10 already has a game mode, it is called Steam. It also has a secondary game modes they are Origin and Uplay...

What I read on other sites it seems this will only work for UWP games. So probably not your steam collection then

Source?

Given the fact we know that Game Mode is a UWP feature, we previously speculated that it might be restricted to games in the Windows 10 Store.

Agreed. What I'd really like to do at this point is swtich to Linux for general OS work stuff and SteamOS for games and kick MS to the fucking curb entirely.

There is no real reason that your not being able to do that.

There are plenty of flavors of Linux and the different desktops, but if your switching from Windows then I would recommend KDE as that is the closest to windows compared to Gnome or Unity.

My personal favorite is opensuse with KDE, but choose as you please, from ubuntu with unity to fedora with gnome, its all free and all testable in a virutalbox on your windows install

So, for someone that's just recently gotten into RPG's in a major way (was always a sim/strategy/wargamer), would you recommend Evercrac...I mean, Everquest? I know it's old, I know it's history. I was around when it started but never felt much need to play it until I got onto this RPG kick last year (helped by Fallout4, Wasteland2, DwarfFortress, The Witcher3 et al.) but seeing how it IS an older game and seemingly legendary in it's genre, I thought maybe I'd jump in to see what it was all about while I still had the chance. Curiously enough, I was interested and signed up for the Everquest Landmark thing which apparently bit the dust. And for some reason, I have absolutely no urge to play WoW whatsoever. Medieval setting with magic, fine. Fantasy setting with medieval and magic on-top, not quite my cup of tea. I tend to go with the more 'realistic' of the fantasy types. If that makes any sense...I guess it stems from my 'Realist' roots, I can't get my mind to just forget the fact that anthropomorphic ninja pandas are a thing and just go with it... *shrugs*

=-Rigs-=

To get the best experience in EQ you need to group, yes yes some classes can solo some stuff but tbh grouping is a must and that takes time... as does the grinding so exp and for rare drops, so be prepared to put a lot of time into the game

But yes the memories will never be replaced, trying to get a part of your rogue epic in Plane of Hate (at lvl 50 as it was back then) is an experience I will never forget

What I actually really want to see is other developers embrace the Vulkan API because this could lead us away from the Direct3D monopoly. I don't know how easy or how difficult it is to code for it, I just hope that people don't skim over it because it's so low-level.
Would be nice to see more big budget games on Linux, you know.

What I understand is that it's as low level as DX12 but it's not platform specific.

Do people get their money back?

on a KS the money only gets taken from your creditcard the at the end of the kickstarter and IF it reached its goal. In this case neither of the 2 will happen

ps: some indiegogo projects (or all, am not sure) these limits do not exists and you pay the moment you donate
