Is there even anywhere on their site where you can actually log in? Or do you have to install the whole thing in order to redeem the code?

It's not like I'm likely to actually play the game so maybe I shouldn't bother, but I do have an ancient account from around the time the game originally released so might as well spruce it up.

After painting all those scary pictures Techspot doesn't bother actually telling you how to switch off the feature. You can do it by pasting chrome://settings/content/idleDetection into the address bar.

Oh, I never noticed before that if I click on the Humble links from here there's an actual adjustable bar for Blue's share of the pie. That's really cool, I'll be sure to swing by here from now on.

The suit also points to a female Activision employee who took her own life while on a company trip with her male supervisor. The employee had been subjected to intense sexual harassment prior to her death, including having nude photos passed around at a company holiday party, the complaint says.

What the article doesn't mention is that said supervisor apparently packed a buttplug and lube for the trip, and no doubt arranged the whole trip in the first place like he was going on some fucking rape holiday.
Do you have a link? The only thing I could find was this:
In one instance that the lawsuit describes as “particularly tragic,” a woman who worked for Blizzard killed herself while on a business trip with a male supervisor with whom she had been having a sexual relationship. The suit also claimed the woman’s male co-workers passed around photos of her naked body at a holiday party before her death.

It's mentioned in the full suit on pages 6 and 15. Maybe elsewhere too; haven't read the whole thing.

I do wonder if this "unnamed supervisor" is Afrasiabi. Anyone know if he scrubbed his online presence before or after the suicide?

Once in awhile Cutter...you really surprise me. I guess that's on me. IMHO, your anarchy take is spot on. I don't claim to be a history buff or extremely well read on the subject but in my life experience there have been anarchists (very few) and then there are people who think that what they perceive as "anarchist behavior" can accomplish their goals (much much more frequent). The latter aren't anarchists of any kind really. They are just people desperate to find any means to their ends. They condemn and abandon the philosophy as soon as they get whatever it is they think they want.

What does that have to do with the documentary? Cutter sets up a ridiculously ignorant strawman of what he fantasizes anarchism to be and then disagrees with it, and that unironically impresses you?

You seem uninformed about what anarchism is. Luckily there's an excellent three part documentary free on youtube if you want to learn:

Part 1 https://youtu.be/JZ-utvfgK8Q
Part 2 https://youtu.be/77GKgbUGJK0
Part 3 https://youtu.be/M6pysEKlg0Q

Might open your eyes, unless you'd rather keep them closed.

Oh please, I've forgotten more about political dogma than you'll ever know. Anarchy comes from ancient Greek meaning 'self-rule' or 'without-rule'. All those anarchist movements of the past? They weren't anarchist movements. They were anarcho-syndicalist movements. Pro-tip: If you belong to a movement that espouses anarchy...you're not an actual anarchist. Stop listening to the idiots on Youtube and pick up an actual history book or two sometime.

Oh I bet you have. I know you're among the thickest numbnuts around here and expecting you to approach anything at all with an open mind is a fool's errand, which is why I really shared the link for the benefit of others in the crowd. Had you watched even ten minutes of the documentary you would've found that it comprises of interviews of professors, historians, philosophers and other experts who with 100% certainty know more about the topic than some canadian high-school dropout boomer, but there we go. Go on, look up the list of interviewees and count the PhDs and tell me again how much more you know than them.

I loved the first game, which was a pleasant surprise because I generally don't have the patience for adventure games these days. It's probably the only adventure game I've finished since the 90s. The individual stories are nice and contained so there's very little annoying wandering where you don't know know where to go let alone what to do. Looking forward to this.

I wonder what a jury of programmers would have thought of it?

If they've ever actually read any of the contracts they've signed instead of just assuming they can do whatever with no repercussions because their skills make them special, I imagine many would understand that whatever they worked on at a company isn't theirs.

I'm a biochemist. If I took off with some research I've worked on not only would I be in a world of legal trouble, but I would likely never work in research ever again nor would I expect to. And I certainly wouldn't be making snide tweets like some spoiled child.

He steals from and screws over his old employer for Facebook, destroys evidence in a hilariously clumsy way because apparently this "genius" can't shred files without googling it, and then tries to play the victim about how they're meanies who hold an unreasonable grudge against him, is my (no doubt unpopular) hot take on this.

That was certainly a compelling and fascinating read.

I'm sorry to see so many people here find pseudoscientific nonsense compelling, but not surprised. The bullshit asymmetry principle is just made for this crap: the Jennifer Margulises of this world can spew scientifically illiterate tosh at a rate that actual rational scientists can't hope to keep up with, and the scientifically illiterate public keep enabling them. I'm glad there are still some who keep trying, in this particular case right here, but really it's a losing fight. The writer here is a Ph.D. in organic chemistry, whereas Jennifer Margulis has no medical or biochemical training and is a long-time anti-glysphosate crusader who publishes in non-peer reviewed predatory journals ie. an ideologue and not any kind of an expert on the topic. She also claims glyphosate causes autism, and will 100% blame glyphosate for the next big health topic as well.

Developing a mindset that values critical thinking takes time, but some good places to start would be:

Yeah, this is John Carmack, not John von Neumann. He's talented for a regular person, but he's still a regular person, not a genius.

Step off the stage Mr Simpleton, that's simply bullshit, he's obviously a genius. He's pretty much the definition of one.

Like I said, John von Neumann is an example of a genius, John Carmack is an example of a smart guy who's good at a thing. Can you not see the massive difference between them?
