I'll take Trump's corporate cronyism any day over Hillary and the Neo Con's wet dream of going to war with Russia.

I have no idea where this war with Russia thing comes from other than Russia stated it.

Trump sucks, so does Hillary. Clinton would have given bankers and oil positions as well. Don't ignore the Clinton record of deregulation and pushing oil company agendas on foreign countries. If she won it would be business as usual while important issues would be ignored. With Trump(a perceived threat to many) as president there are more people willing to fight for needed changes such as reduction of power for the presidential office.

First I want to say, I actually am impressed with talking politics at BN. We say our piece, no one goes running to mommy (Blue) about he said this and it hurt my feelings. This is a place we put it down and people may question it, but we don't run for moderation support nor completely cry. Rare actually.

I was going good reading and thought I was going to make it through the thread without a reply.

I agree Clinton was more of the same, but I was ok enough with that, sure I would like positive changes, but it can also be changes for the worse. So imo risky move where we are at now, there are so many changes being thrown around, that doesn't bode well for markets, it is almost like opposite day has come to the USA, right now in words, but perhaps actions soon.

The last part was the one that got me though where I had to post, "With Trump(a perceived threat to many) as president there are more people willing to fight for needed changes such as reduction of power for the presidential office."

I see Trump wanting to suck all power to himself, he singles out those of his own party if you don't get on-board I will get you. Did it again to Ryan just two days ago. He puts that down immediately with anyone it seems, praise be furor. Hell I see him as one that will attempt to make it so the president can't be ousted, ya know.... a Putin. This man has the audacity in him to try this and bury you if you try to question it, let alone stop it. I won't say this is a certainty, but the makeup of this man is classic dictator and would not say this is out of the realm of possibility. Everything a prez should be doing he does almost the opposite, so why should he have to run again? Just make him supreme leader and be done with it, right? If you asked him just that he's say "sounds good" I know he would that is who he is, there is humbleness. He likes the isolationist route, the show your colors route or else, smartest man alive jive... classic dictator.

problem with all these kickstarted RPGs and so forth is they are almost never finished at release... you gotta wait months or even years for all the DLC and patches and so forth to bring them up to proper completion

So, basically like any other AAA release these days.

Witcher 3 wasnt like that.. cant think of any more modern AAA rpgs

Whatcha talking 'bout Willis?

Plenty of DLC and patches. Yeah one thing KS and EA's aren't any more guilty of is after release patches and DLC.

Cool beans. What's needed ASAP is software to prevent tailgating. It's my largest peeve, and the cause of almost all accidents, and it's completely unnecessary. It doesn't even have to override the driver, just rat them out to the cops and insurance companies. They'll learn PDQ not to do it anymore.

Really it is your largest? I don't know because you have so many.

How about "I'm tailgating you know because I had clear distance until you came into my lane to take that away from me. Who made who?"

I'm still bitter about a wreck I was in a long time ago, big truck ahead of me driving. I have clear distance, he doesn't slow down, but hits a car violently while that care was waiting to turn left. I hit him because he comes to an immediate halt, not a natural stop, not a slam the brakes natural stop, a hit the f'in wall dead stop. Their mistake created the chain reaction, he made me, that is who made who there. But the courts wouldn't even listen past a single sentence and threw contempt at me. Asshole judge to.

Years later they tried to get me in another one, stop and go traffic, someone from behind plows into us, well we all hit who is in front because they hammered us from behind. My report stated I was stopped, I was, later they came back to say I didn't have cleared distance. I said I was fucking stopped, physics made me hit the guy in front of me because of the guy in the back hitting us. In that case they did end up seeing it my way. Trying to sell "not keeping assured clear distance" when I was stopped!

. I have clear distance if he were to slam on his breaks and come to a halt naturally that way. But coming to a screetching stop because of their mistake shouldn't make it mine to. Courts through me out trying to argue and I mean I had a sentence and they put their foot down.

In my own experiences, AMD have decent and competitive hardware now...

Surely you only mean their video cards. Their CPUs haven't been competitive in anything but price for a long time.

Surely I don't understand the video cards either, competitive on the mid to low end? Ok. I mean if we have to lower the bar to make them look better, just be clear about it. Step up please.

Under the proposal conversations wouldn't be banned, but airlines would have to inform consumers ahead of a flight if they will be "unwillingly exposed" to mobile voice calls while in the air.

"Consumers deserve to have clear and accurate information about whether an airline permits voice calls before they purchase a ticket and board the aircraft,"


Headset or ear plugs.

I know BN is on pins and needles with my "block updates" update.

Still no updates forced on me since disabling Windows Update and BITS service, this happened right around the time the free offer expired. No viruses, no security breaches, I also have a clone image just in case, no issues. Sort of like video drivers, I update when I have to, not when others state perhaps I should. We all have our beliefs in all of this, just saying it seems you can shut off updates in Win10 easily enough.

Can't happen soon enough, if you ask me. But equally I am worried that such a system will have problems in winter and the twilight weather between 0C where you can never fully predict whether it's just really foggy or slippery as fuck because nature decided to fuck THAT corner in particular.

I get Cutter's point and agree with it in general, but as your worry points, what I'm getting at is the backlash of court of public opinion when it does go wrong and how that will snowball quickly. That basically someone lost a life by putting total faith in code, they didn't have a chance to make a difference themselves, family will feel they could have made a difference. I'm probably not explaining this all that well, but I think when some of these happen the backlash rightfully or wrongly, will be legendary. Even if by the statistics it is better than humans overall, just saying when it takes you out of the equation and something bad happens, human nature is going to say "I could have made a difference". Perhaps when conditions get poor enough, auto-pilot doesn't work, if so Industry is screwed, they couldn't rely on the tech, just have a human driver for bad days? Right.

Obviously yes I'd love something better, but I've now totally accepted that brake and lane assist is a major step forward and enough for me at least at this time. I'm hoping I own one come spring, the brake assist being the biggy, that moment when you look elsewhere and the person in front of you imperfectly brakes hard unexpectedly, that's the situation I see most often when I drive, that potential mistake right there.

The rest is still a bit to sci-fi in the same line as mass drone delivery. I do give us credit though, it has come a long way, is not only being discussed but things are really happening. I'm not a total no here at all, but some situations have me scratching how they'll be handled.

Michigan Transportation Director Kirk Steudle concedes that there will be crashes and probably a fatality involving autonomous cars.
But they get to test in snow so that makes it all better. Lawsuits in 3-2-1

It does make me wonder how all this is going to work with such unpredictable weather and outcomes. I get it we make plenty of mistakes, but when you rely on systems, it seems liability shuffles to mfg vs driver. The backlash is going to be legendary. Could be wrong.

I'm not sitting around for the killer app, there is product out there and it keeps improving. I'm sitting around for version 2 at 1/2 the cost. This is how consumer electronics are supposed to work... well if you are serious about it being a big thing. $200 controllers are not good value either. If they feel they can't take a bit of a hit early on they may find there isn't a later on.

I also did notice and liked that you had "bottom tier" on top and bottom, I actually found it fitting.

Yeah I like the person that thinks all the mainstream is all wrong and that national enquirer stuff is now correct. Obviously something went sideways with such individuals. To really think that, that has to be a miserable life, a meglo's life, one big setup against you and only you.

Yeah, I realized I had it set up wrong, then brainfarted even further. At least it was a funny mistake.

I agree that it's frightening that some people think all the legitimate news outlets are bad. None of them are perfect, but none of them are awful. Typically, the ones that think CNN or the WSJ orThe New York Times are always wrong (and, admittedly, CNN is "wrong" way more frequently now than it was a decade ago, as it focuses more heavily on what people tune in to [editorials] and less on just reporting what happens) are the same ones that think Russia Today, Alex Jones, Prison Planet, and the like are the only "real" sources.

Yep it is so upside down right now, I'm unsure what to do about it. If a Dem had any tie whatsoever with Russia the Commie word comes out right now, but I've heard more about Russia being ok under the new regime and it goes without question from their followers. What gives? They still blast Dems for Commie China deals as if rep corp types didn't eat that up... Nothing is adding up right now. It does seem we are being driven by fear, which that doesn't surprise, we haven't been the "Home of the brave" for sometime.

It is funny what sticks we us, I had a large impression while having some friends out from GA 2 years ago, the wife of a couple (60's) seriously lives in fear of terrorism, as if it is imminent, it only tells me how well Fox News works on people. I don't like it, who does? But I can't say I wake up worrying about it.

Never update your drivers until some game actively starts having issues. Updating every time Nvidia randomly throws out some cobbled-together code releases a new driver is begging to get hit with major issues.

I live by the first one, I can't say the second never happens, but it is rare. I love these threads though, always someone(s) that have major systems issues, clock work. Almost never have one over here, but see #1, don't update all that often.

I don't get why both Nvidia and Intel are so far ahead in technology cycles either. It seems for every iteration either company does, AMD/ATI do 1 less. And that obviously leads to disaster. ;(

And I want competition! I still use a AMD cpu, but the upgrade is looming ever closer, and it doesn't look like AMD is even decent in the competition for upgrade paths...

Disaster for who? Even if AMD weren't competition, doing some math a while back this round of NVidia cards was as good as they've had in a long long time, performance boost between models 9xx and 10xx.
