O.o .... finally something that just might run VR well

Is there a struggle with that today?

Windows 10, the securer os.

I have no doubt it's the most secure Windows OS... But... It's still Windows... : )

I mean... Except against it's own malware... : )

Which means most secure insecure O/S. Yay?

Yeah if the owner abandoned Banished, it was because he retired to Tahiti off the sales.

As for a clone of, how can that even be an argument anymore? And by anymore, I mean decades. Weird how a game randomly gets picked on that way.

That is the mistake the left makes when it comes to the US. We are armed and will fight back.

A bunch of pussy big-talkers. They don't like it that the left is revolting with marches currently, even though that is all part of the process when people feel wronged. Where was the rights protests on Obama? Hardly a trickle. Because it is all talk and no action. There is action now because the left is a lot stronger than one thinks and without guns to hide behind, they just go out and do. Idle threats.

Hey now, lets remember this is just a game right? When someone attacks our rights to play games, one has no problem pointing that out.

I'm my own kinda christian and have no problem taking it out on christian or muslim pixels. In this case particular case christian, hopefully alt-righters to make my immersion better. Gonna need some Triple A dismemberment gfx in this one to really hit it off. All in the name of make belief because I'm not like that for real. But fantasy Horror? Sure!

No shit? All along I thought basically no one liked robo-calls, it wasn't even political for it to be a bi-partisan thing. But now it is political and Republicans are for it. Are they on the right side of any issue at the moment? It isn't just the politicians themselves that are party first, their people are now as well and don't even see it. All they want is to fix everything with force, yeah that never works, history repeating.

And this is after wanting to quiet, attack and imprison the media. JHC!

Hey an antagonist I can really relate to and now take out my frustrations on. I wasn't sure what to make of it at first... but it just might work!

Boom! Something. Something. Trump Something! Boom!

I did enjoy, but I need to space ARPG's out. They feel like Calculator meets Blender and by the end... it dulls a little on me.

"Much larger than its highly-awarded predecessor, Divinity: Original Sin"

The first one was pretty darn huge, and this one is bigger? Awesome game. Very few complaints except by the end, I felt like the same combos over and over were most effective (unless an enemy had resistances).

To me that is what I've found to be the problem with long games, you figure it out and it is rinse and repeat for too long. I won't bash this game because of it, just sort of a state of gaming issue to me in general. Yes first was good, but still plenty of places to improve on, hopefully they take a nice step forward here..

The name means nothing to me, the original was ok, but didn't leave me screaming squeal!

I do get some of your points certainly.

In the end, I loved it though.

Who but the most naive of idealists could ever have thought that IoT was a good thing and bound to succeed?

You've grown so old, it is going to happen if not immediately (which it is), in time. If nothing else, generations will grow up with it as the standard and push the close minded out or to the grave, ya know, like always, forever.

See the comment above yours and get a clue.

It doesn't matter what the state is today, good or bad. It is here and it will keep coming and coming. It isn't not going to happen, it has and will continue to build, regardless of bumps in the road.

Are you dumdums trolling or genuinely didn't read the article? This attack had exactly nothing to do with malicious e-mails or phishing attacks. Also, this has been known for days. The "email" thing was a poorly informed opinion by so-called "experts" who knew nothing about the true nature of the attack and were at best grasping at straws.

It was basically a "calling Florida for Gore" moment when they knew nothing, so they thought the best way forward is to pretend they knew something, which turned out to be the exact opposite of the truth. oops.

Good job repeating it in a public forum though, it's almost as if you're spreading disinformation like a... well, like some kind of pathogen, well something contagious that's bad for you... if only there was a word for this...

Thanks for the details, I get it, it is in the article.

That was the Windows Feature I turned off on my Win10 boxes, SMB1.

But we haven't recovered mentally from 2008 and looks like we might not. We are in a save save save mentality, happy days of nicely flowing cash doesn't exist there.

The save save save mentality isn't something tied to a temporary uptick or downturn. Most people don't have pensions any more, and it's been hammered into people that Social Security isn't going to let you retire comfortably -- if you don't save up throughout your career then you'll die in a gutter. And you'll probably have a pre-existing health condition by then, so the way things are looking you'll be lucky to be able to afford insurance.

FWIW I was focusing on corporate saving/buying, they are hording causing issues for us.

There are companies that spend 10's of millions and still had this happen to some degree. This I know as fact. You needed the March update to be protected if this fired off on your pc. Not 10 years worth of protection, not Aprils, March's. If one system didn't take the upgrade and that user clicked the email, gotcha. You can spend a lot of money and still have that scenario happen because PC's just don't always take. Looking at my biz PC it failed once and then 4 days later took the patch, this was still a few good weeks ahead of when it hit.

This happens to a few systems in a corporation that for some reason didn't upgrade, no big deal. Tech support reimages those machines, and a few hours later the users are back up and running.

I'm talking about corporations that got thousands of PCs hit by this. That's just pure stupidity or laziness or both. And typically in an IT department, that's caused because there's a bunch of useless shitheels in charge, or because there's no money.

Likewise, if you're in a company that is spending in the "10s of millions" of dollars for IT support and your shop is either mostly or entirely Windows based and you aren't using SCCM to manage all those machines, your IT VP is an idiot, who is probably eating paste right now and laughing at the magic whirly thing on the ceiling.

Where I work currently, none of the machines were infected. Those machines who had not been updated were denied outside access, sandboxed on to an isolated VLAN, and forced to update via SCCM. Oh the users couldn't work? Sucks to be them. And before some smartass comes back with a snarky "Yeah, say that to a VP or CEO or blah blah blah". One of those users was the Prevost (kinda like an EVP) and they were still sandboxed and force updated.

There are two kinds of companies: those who understand IT is just as important as the legal department and treat it as such, and those who treat it like a cost center and are one good data breach away from bankruptcy or buyout.

The SCCM policies will be looked at certainly for large companies hit at any level, some don't kick you off quick enough, if out of compliance.

People in this very thread ranted against the $15 minimum, despite Cutter being right about how well it worked in Seattle.

I was opposed to it because it seemed like the wage increase would simply lead to corporations passing those costs on to their customers, thus leading to increased prices on pretty much all products, including things like food, etc, which would just hit those minimum wagers again the most.

The fact that that hasn't really seemed to have happened in Seattle is admittedly very surprising. I mean, what happened? Did corporations just eat the cost themselves???

That does happen to some extent. But when minimum can't afford to support that singular person, what is the point of it? Those wanting to sell fear, will oversell what you were thinking. However they think they deserve more no matter what they make well beyond minimum, their job is important, others not so much.

Shitty corporations who spend zero dollars on IT and PC owners who never bother to upgrade / get malware protection was the reason WCry spread so widely.
