I liked Stranger Things 2. Not quite as good as the first season, but still a highly tense and very enjoyable show. Very much looking forward to a third season (please, Netflix?)

It doesn't matter what Equifax does or doesn't do about that, it matters what the FTC will do.

Oh wait, the FTC just takes a bribe and shuts the fuck up, like the rest of our government.

Do you mean the SEC? The SEC are kind of strict on insider trading. Ask Martha Stewart. If insider trading happened, they'll likely find out about it and do something.

Yeah, you are correct. I still don't think shit is going to happen though. Martha Stewart was small fry peanuts and someone they used to scare the peasantry into obedience. Equifax is like, IMPORTANT, MAN! :\

It's Build engine now. In 2020, they'll switch to Unreal Engine 5, then in 2023 they'll switch to Unity 4, and then in 2039 they'll switch to Star Citizen Engine 0.9Alpha.

Ok I'm gonna counter-point ya Creston. I've been using computer since the good old Ti-994a, can pretty much troubleshoot all my software/hardware and am pretty intuitive when it comes to software.
But you have NO CLUE how much I'd love to get a bunch of Blue'sers to come to Amazon and just help them work out the GUI/Streamline some of the software we use. Thankfully we use windows 7/10 (depending if you begged enough to get a non-shitty laptop at work), but we also use Zebra TC5 scanners for just about everything (if you ever go to a Amazon pick-up drop-off you'll even see them there) and they are horrible outdated android phones with a scanner.
So back to the doctor..... I have seen offices that use a combo DOS system and Windows, that after watching them use it for years (when I donated plasma twice a week for years...) that makes my asshole pucker up due to all the key combo's etc they have to use.
Now throw in say a more modern hospital that has digital files of ultra sounds, MRI's scans etc it can be very daunting. Hell even my ex the head of a hospital Cath Lab unit had to take a 3 week course when they went 80-90% digital.
But we also know that digital files are like the internet. You may screw up something, and catch/fix it later but once it's out there it's out there. So I agree with you and the others that someone who can potential kill you by accidentally giving you a 10mg perscription giving you 20mg (or worse) is not a good thing.

I'm honestly not quite sure what point you're trying to make, bud. That some programs are a bitch to use? Sure, I'm not denying that, but if you work with them enough, you'll eventually learn how to use them. And if you don't have time for that, then do what every other doctor in the world does, and hire someone to do it for you.

I do tech support for a doctor here in town, and he has an office manager who basically does all the computer stuff for him. Not because he doesn't know how to (he does), but because he just doesn't have the time.

84 year old woman can bitch and moan as much as she wants, but her entire argument boils down to "I am old, I shouldn't have to learn shit I don't want to learn."

Sure, you don't, if you're unemployed. But if you want to be a doctor, then you do. And if you can't do it, then hire someone else to do it, or stop being a doctor.

Cool costume, but this bit from the article:

Rousey once spent $1,300 on WoW cards for the chance to get a rare mount, but unfortunately for her, it didn't work out.

How is this NOT gambling, exactly?

I still come across the occasional user who goes "I just don't know how to use these dangfangled computers hahaha!"

Yeah, it's not funny anymore. It was cute back in the 90s. We're 20 years further down the road now. FUCKING LEARN OR GET OUT OF THE FUCKING WORKFORCE.

It's not like we're asking people to code a goddamned AI or something. Just some rudimentary knowledge on how to interact with Windows, the Internet and Office apps doesn't seem too much to fucking ask for.


Also, about that doctor:

“I had no choice,” she told Judge John Kissinger, who did not issue a ruling. The AP also noted that Konopka will see any patient who can pay her $50 in cash.

“If I close my office, they will be without medical care,” she also told the court. “Some of them need medications. Who will prescribe for them if I don’t have a license? I worry what will happen to them.”

If you see patients without a license, you're going to really quickly wind up in jail. And as for who will prescribe for them if you don't have a license? Other doctors WHO KNOW HOW TO USE A FUCKING COMPUTER.

Hope all the Runic guys (and Motiga) find other jobs soon. I really enjoyed Torchlight, though I barely ever played the 2nd one.

Everything about Call of Duty is a disrespectful cash grab, but gamers apparently LOVE being Bobby Kotick's bitch year after year after year after year.

Another bullshit headline from gamasutra. Games revenue hasn't slowed to a crawl at Microsoft, games revenue GROWTH has slowed to a crawl. And really, who ever sees that coming on the eve of them releasing a new SKU?

Wtf has happened to gamasutra? They used to write really good shit, and now it seems like it's the garbage reject bin from IGN.

More great VR titles than I have time for, oh wait. Could put 1000's of hours just into the sims.

I would fucking LOVE a VR version of Cities: Skylines.
