At first I was going to say "He will have much lulz in prison", but I actually kind of agree with what he did, so it's (bleeping bleepbleep) that he will undoubtedly get a longer prison sentence than the two "football players" who got 1 and 2 years in prison for what was described as a "horrific rape of a teenage girl."

As always, in the US, the answer to "How can I get away with shit and not go to jail?" is:

A) Be rich
B) Be a football player

At first that seemed ludicrous, but

“And by every interaction, we mean every tap, type, swipe and click. We’re calling them touches,” it explains.

So if you send a text, that's an easy 100 touches right there. So then I can see it.

Even with that measurement, I doubt I touch the thing more than ~ 200 times a day.

Who has "upgraded" to Win10? Got any tips? With the free upgrade deadline approaching and the rest of the parts for my new system arriving tomorrow and Saturday, I'm preparing to put Win10 on my machines.

I did, just last weekend. I was going to do a clean install, but I have so much shit installed for which I don't remember the license key/password, that I didn't feel like dealing with the hassle. So I upgraded instead. Went 100% flawlessly, and quite fast too.

So it sounds like I can just start from a clean install and give it a Win7 code when prompted instead of installing Win7 and performing an upgrade.

Correct.

I will install Win10 on the new machine from the start. I have a Win7 upgrade license that I never used, so I will use it on the new machine.

I don't know for sure, but be careful about it being an upgrade license. It's possible that those aren't accepted by Win 10. I was going to do a clean install and convert my old Windows 7 key, but someone warned me that because it was a family pack upgrade key, windows 10 wouldn't take it...

Great achievement for them, and I hope the game does well, but I'll need some massively solid word of mouth before I'll bite. It looks pretty enough, but also something I'd get bored with in a few hours.

Anyone here sprechen Deutsch or Turkish? eRe4s3r?

How is the name 'Can' (as in Emre Can) pronounced by German football commentators? Khan, San, Jan, Chan (like in 'channel')? British commentators usually pronounce it Chan but it varies and they frequently suck at foreign names anyway.

I would say Khan (completely silent H though), but I'm not a native German speaker.

What you have is likely a gas cylinder and... forget repairing that. Replacement is 15$ tops

obligatory how-to video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiDby4FouwQ

Btw, just a fair warning, you see him applying WD40 there, don't skip that step. Once you got piston removed, take measurements and buy replacement (10 to 15$ afaik) if it's standard replacement piston maybe even for your chair you have good chances it'll work like in the video.

Thanks man

Verno, since you're the chair fix magician ( ), any idea what part I need to fix a chair where the hydraulics have failed? (Ie, the chair won't stay at the highest position anymore. As soon as anyone sits on it, it slowly starts sliding down.)
With the chair at the height you like, measure the exposed cylinder.
Cut a piece of pvc pipe that is the same length. 1/2, 3/4 or 1" Schedule 80 depending on shaft diameter. You want to slice the piece of pipe down the middle or in half (lengthwise) and wrap it around the shaft. Secure in place with 2 worm gear hose clamps or heavy duty tie wraps. Goes without saying but you won't have bouncy failing hydraulics or height adjustment capability anymore.

Sitting in one "southern engineered" like it right now.

Hehe, yeah, I'd thought about turning it into a Redneck Office Chair. I tend to use it in various spots where I need to vary the height though, so sadly that wouldn't work.

Is this game like Left 4 Dead but with aliens?

No. Nothing like it, really. It's four players vs 1 player as the monster. No hordes of zombies or anything.

At the end of each level there is a boss fight?

Well... I mean, technically, I guess. It takes about 20 minutes of running for players to corner the monster somewhere, and then they fight him. So it's sort of an end level boss fight.
(Kidding aside, there is no boss fight.)

Can I play solo with AI teammates?

Ehhh... This I don't know, really. I don't think so, but someone else can probably confirm or deny.

I'm honestly not sure what there's left to enhance. The game is pretty much perfect as far as I'm concerned.

Maybe put the SP Gwent game's balance changes into Witcher 3, but that's about all I can think of.

(and yes, all of you who say the combat is terrible, whatever. Go play Doom.)


I still use around 10 mods... so there is that. Not that they see eye to eye with me on those.

I'll second nin's comment. Which mods are you using?

I picked up AC:Mordor complete for $12 and Wolfenstein for a tenner. Both seem like cool games, and I don't mind paying 10 bucks for either.

Sure, I can lament the loss of the "Buy awesome games for $2.50!" era, but the reality of it was that I bought a bunch of games that I never played, or even installed.

And if this made more revenue for devs, then cool.

Wuh? So that's all the content you're giving for that $50 (or however hell high you hiked it) season pass?

I mean, I got the season pass for 20 bucks so I'm fine, but I can see a LOT of people feeling ripped off.

Other than several stupid gimmick DLCs, you (will have) released exactly two DLCs of note, Far Harbor and Nuka Time. That's BS, Pete Hines.
