And before you say that's my ISP doing it, I have no such issues with Steam, with PS, with anything. Just with effing MS.
It does sound like your ISP though. Maybe the way the xbox gets the updates flags the process to your ISP as a torrent connection and throttle it?
Have you tried to use a VPN?
I've never had any download issues with the xbone updates.

Always at 180MB it stops though. Always. Doesn't matter the update size. 200MB? Chokes at 180. 5 GB? Chokes at 180. And it does it for nothing else.

So unless MS is actively giving me these updates through a torrent, I don't see it.

Can also be read as "Congress/Senate wants more bribe money from pharma execs."

“The FBI stands ready to investigate and hold accountable those who willfully violate federal antitrust law.”

"GRRRR! TOUGH TALK! RABBLE RABBLE"

So far you fuckers have done jack shit against Shkreli, just like he predicted you would. But sure, keep posturing and acting tough. Then go back to spying on the American people.

Trump has got to be the most thin skinned piece of shit alive. He takes literally everything personally and is super vindictive.

Great qualities in a President according to some folks.

Yeah it'll be a joy.

That said, I wouldn't invite Twitter to a meeting of "tech giants" either.

The thing that always irritates me about Xbone updates is that they'll go fast (filling my 24mbps connection), until they get to about 180MB left. And then they slow down. doooowwwnnnn... To like 5kb/s down. And they'll stay like that for 10-15 minutes.

And then they speed up again and finish. Every single fucking time.

And before you say that's my ISP doing it, I have no such issues with Steam, with PS, with anything. Just with effing MS.

It's always a little silly to give a single guy the honors, when it's his entire team's effort, but even so, it's well-deserved.

It's probably very good that they canceled that version of Doom 4. Making a Call of Doom could have very likely been the final nail in their coffin.

Instead, they reinvigorated themselves with the 2016 Doom, and now I'm curious what they'll do next. Though whatever it is, it likely won't be out until 2021 or so...

so this area is right on schedule for the official coming of winter next week.

Careful, Blue. HBO's dildos lawyers may sue you for saying that winter is coming.

'Star in a Jar’ Fusion Reactor Works and Promises Infinite Energy.

Heh, thought this would be an article about cold fusion. Turns out they're just talking about an advance in the electromagnetic containment field for traditional fusion.

Cold fusion is a pipe dream, and this design makes the temperature issue moot anyway. I had no idea they were this far along with this reactor. We may see fusion reactors come online in our lifetimes yet.

Here's a fun scenario. Say they find irrefutable evidence that the Russians indeed hacked the election and caused Trump to win. What do they do? Announce it? If so, no American will ever have any faith in election results ever again.

Or do they sit on it quietly, so as not to show how comically clown-level inept the US government is at the simplest forms of cyber security?

You don't say? How's that 70% of all cars being "clean diesel" working out for ya there, Paris?

That's the fault of crooks like VW, not Paris.

Well, yes and no. Obviously VW are a bunch of fucking scumbags whose leadership deserves to see major jailtime (but never will. Fuck you, Ferdinand Piech, you piece of shit) and their actions have definitely contributed, but it was this fucking inane shift in Europe to get off petrol/gasoline and onto Diesel because it was "cleaner" that's to blame. The large majority of cars in Europe are diesel, and France was one of the highest diesel users in Europe.

Anyone who has ever stood beside a fucking diesel powered car knows that diesel is NOT cleaner. Sure, it may have fewer CO2 emissions, which helps with the greenhouse effects, but the nox emissions are through the roof, and that's (partially) why all these major cities in Europe (and elsewhere) are now suffering from all this god-awful smog.

Rest easy, John Glenn.


Can you imagine what it must have been like, to see the space race unfold?

Makes me want to go watch The Right Stuff...


Yeah, both he and Gagarin were just some of the most unbelievable pioneers of the human race. It's sad that all our space heroes are dying.
