How hard is it to communicate with your customers? 'Our apologies but our ship date has been pushed back due to unforeseen problems with XYZ. We'll notify you the moment we know more.'

Isn't that exactly what this is?

No really surprised, Doom is a console ported pile of trash.

Doom beta lacking key PC features

the advanced graphic options uncovered address many of their complaints about graphics adjustment. the fps cap can be set to 144, for example. fov can supposedly be set via launch command. i fully expect that option to ship in final code, along with options for their mouse quibbles.

a server browser, who knows. it's more surprising when a game has it than not to me.

This is the one that was most concerning to me,
aim assist when using the mouse if you simply plug in a controller.
and
rebinding keys doesn't work

Did the see eye A intentionally get caught, due to intentional sloppy work? Or did they almost go through with it? These 'exercises' often end up happening exactly during the exercise and we get patsy photos as the allegeds. Sandy H had an exercise on the same day. 911 was an exercise on the same day for the same event. Boston had an exercise going on at the same event.

Confirmation bias.

Wow that's really disappointing. Hadn't even considered the possibility of a bad port, but now with that info I think this just dropped off my radar.

No sir. The test is definitely different every time though. I just did it 10 times in a row and there was never more than 2 blanks. Usually 1 grey or 1 multi-colored panel without a number.

Maybe you got an odd one where there were 3? /shrug

Ah sorry then, I didn't realize it was random.
Yes I definitely had a test with 3 true blanks. Same test had a 2 hard ones where I was tempted to hit the nothing button but ended up seeing an actual number right before I did.

So idiots hit Mic Drop instead of Send and cry about it. Typical blame something else besides themselves society.

Well, they put the button right next to the other "send" button. I could see how someone in a hurry would maybe hit the wrong one...

(Oh course, also skeptical of the "I lost my job" sort of posts as well. On 4/1, who can tell who's telling the truth?)


The button was a vastly different color, had an animated mic drop, and said "Send + *mic drop animation*...if you somehow hit that by mistake you could easily have rectified it by sending one via the real button...but really, would you want to employ people who can't differentiate between the two buttons?

It's not like Google went "hey, let's create this new button, offset the old button and put the new one in it's place"...only then would I believe the sob stories, and even then my level of sympathy would be nil because people should actually pay attention.

That is actually what happened, while it didn't replace the normal send button, it did replace the "Send + Archive" button. Which if you're used to clicking that, you'd be clicking the mic drop button instead.

Well, you know Seph, we can't all be perfect like DarkCntry.

I just found it funny that he laid out in detail what actually happened but as if it hadn't happened. Maybe read the article next time.

I don't eat healthily by any means.
But I also don't eat anything except my 2 meals a day and don't drink any sugary drinks.
I don't buy snacks at all, that's how I avoid the temptation to overeat or graze between meals.

I know people who eat healthier meals than me, but inbetween those meals they're eating potato chips, glasses of soda, pieces of chocolate.

Yeah, it was only supposed to display them for like 9 seconds. If you look away from your monitor at something white in between the images, they are all easier to see.

There was only one that was basically all grey bubbles that I couldn't make out.

If you think there was only one that didn't have a number then you were able to see something that wasn't there twice.

IT work historically takes post-secondary education. The people that have put the time and money into (read: an investment) that education expect to it to pay off. Literally.
Yes and no. Certainly I've known people making good money in the IT industry who didn't go to college at all. And others who went to college, but didn't study anything technical. I know two guys with BAs in Psychology, and another with Honors degrees in English, the Classics, and Rhetoric -- all of them now have high level IT jobs.

IT/CS without a degree is getting rarer in my opinion. But you're right about the actual degree not mattering often.

I have faith and I don't have faith. It's extremely complicated in my mind. Logic says there must be a creator and another logic refutes it. One is based on the watching of all things, seeming to have a purpose of means - a beginning and an end - yet also without final purpose for it's all just a recycle; and yet, there is a beginning and an end, and there is a creation process. So I'm in a constant state of confusion and bewilderment. I actually hope there is a God (capital G out of respect for believers) because I want this seemingly futile and fleeting existence to have a true purpose, but at the same time eternity negates true purpose because it lacks an ultimate goal. *spin*

I can tell you one thing on a very personal level. If I go to a church, I don't feel God, instead I feel the prying eyes of people critiquing and judging each other. When I sit in the sunlight on the beach, walk through a trail of rustling trees, or watch animals in their natural environments, then I feel "God'. I wonder if that makes me non-religious or something else. I dunno.

Some would say that makes you spiritual. I experience awe at nature and the universe. And the amazing complexity of the systems that govern biology and chemistry. At the engineering achievements of man. Myself, I don't consider it spiritual, it's just that curiosity resulting in new insight and knowledge makes me very happy.

I wonder if these kind of photos were the ones that got her fired.

There's a rumor floating around that her cause for termination was moonlighting at Sega(she was definitely moonlighting though).

That's not a rumor. That's what the article is about. Both her and Nintendo confirmed that that was the official reason for termination.

GoG also "built their ecosystem from scratch" yet they don`t lock anything , "everyone else is doing it" was never a good excuse and so on and on. You can rationalize away but the fact remains that for a little convenience you signed off your right to ownership.

You never had ownership, you licensed the software. This has never changed, its always been the standard aside from a few exceptions.

Sigh, I hate when people try to bring this up as a counter argument.

Yes, we know we don't actually OWN the software, of course we don't, no one actually thinks they do. All we want is access to it whenever we want, and the ability to do with it whatever we want-THAT'S what a paying for a license should allow us to do so, but company's treat their customers like criminals, even though it makes no bloody difference in the end.

Look at what he was responding to. He wasn't arguing at all against what you wrote.

Yeah right... as if a code converter ever produced usable code.
UWP is by and large a subset of Win32. If your game isn't doing anything too crazy, it should in fact work.

"game", they said old-school Windows apps.
I'd love to see this thing run our legacy behemoth VB6 MDI.

Did some personal bible study tonight and it really helped me appreciate Jesus words, "You must love your neighbor as yourself." (Matthew 22:39) The first 25 or so minutes of this video (produced by JW's) helped me greatly appreciate the gravity of what Jesus' words meant. This has led me to conclude that a minimum wage, no a living wage, of $15 is the neighborly and compassionate thing to do. I now know a lot of people, including fellow worshipers, who would greatly benefit from such an income increase regardless of marketable skills. Thank you all for your valuable points of view.

Glad to hear you've been educated on this modern issue by an ancient work of fantasy. Well done.

Have fun programming your garbage collection and other essential services.

Your segue to "Have fun programming your garbage collection and other essential services" is rather odd and mildly confusing.

Yeah have fun with your safe implicit types.

The best part of SA was being a weirdo completionist who refuses to do main storyline until all side things are completed. So I capture all possible gang territory over a long period of time. Then I start doing the main missions and they take it all away from me and I need to recapture it all. lol

California raises minimum wage to $15 an hour. As a Web UX Developer / Programmer I will make a slight dozen digits more* than someone who flips hamburgers, stuffs lettuce in a taco, and drops fries in a vat of grease. These are no skill jobs. They're not suppose to be living income jobs. People who "settle" at minimum wage jobs basically gave up on life. It's not the government's job to force companies to give these people a 6% raise every year for the next six years!

*I care not to say specifically how much

CA has a programmers minimum wage of 83K.

Wow, didn't know that. Now I'm super mad because it took me years to get to that level in Michigan. Wait no I'm not because I'm not upset about how much other people that aren't me make. Or if I am it's because they make too little and my taxes are used to keep them afloat otherwise.
