Comcast keeps sending me letters that say I need to switch to their new modem to unlock the best speeds. Nah, I'm cool with this 30 Mbps, you guys seem a little too eager to get me to switch and therefore it's probably bad for me in some way.

You mean Docis 3? Well, that depends on what you are paying for. I had a 2.0 a couple years ago, and called them (Comcast) and asked why I was getting the speeds I was paying for (didn't know why, didn't do any research) they said I needed a new modem.

I went and got the new one from them, but they didn't feel the need to credit me for not notifying me of the upgrade needed to get better speeds.

They are a Monopoly here in Minneapolis. Sucks.

I dunno, when I look up Docsis I don't see anything about being limited to 30Mbps so I assume that's Comcast limiting me not my cable modem. I think they just want me to switch so they can give me that share WiFi with everyone modem since I'm in an apartment complex.

In the end this isn't so much about grammar as it is about the meaning that the correct grammar implies. Although I don't think blues had that in mind.

To me, the only logically correct way to say what the article *means* is if you say that you can measure life through a worlds vibration.

Sounds like you're still not getting it... We can detect life on other worlds through life's vibrations.

Also, though not the meaning of the article, shouldn't your bolded word be world's ?

I love how the comments on that turned into a retarded slap fight between youtubers and redditors.

Use the Chrome extension Hide Fedora, you won't regret it.

What does it do? "those annoying le reddit, fedora, m'lady type of comments on YouTube should be removed" - what does that mean? Does it hide YouTube comments based on key words? Does it hide comments based on the user's own criteria? Is it just a way of pretending people you disagree with don't exist?

Yeah a ban list is maintained of all the Le Reddit Army posters. Some of them are funny at times but it's been the same shtick for over a year and it tends to crowd out anything original and/or on topic.

Don't see the problem with this? It's just another way to commit a sting operation. If you're a criminal stupid enough to confess to criminal wrongdoing on social media you deserve to get busted.

Agreed. If anything this is less invasive/entrapment than in person undercover operations because everyone knows that everything online is fake.

There we go again more lame lipservice from Obama pushing his "regulation" mandates pretending to poo poo Sony for pulling the movie due to possible terrorist attacks -- while knowing full well he'd pull a "Benghazi" on Sony.

He'd blame them fully if they showed the film and some type of attack happened - just like he blamed some stupid silly movie for the very serious 9/11 Benghazi attack.

Now we all know it shouldn't have been pulled, but I'd be willing to bet Sony is a million times more bothered with Obama proven cowardice and likely response than any type of attack if it happened to happen, and they'd be demonized just like the poor little movie guy from before...

It's weird that you can't distinguish between a president criticizing self-censorship in the face of terrorist threats and a CIA assessment that a film influenced worldwide U.S. embassy protests. Had they gone through with releasing the comedy, in the extremely improbable event that NK launched an attack on us, I very much doubt that Sony would be a topic the president would be discussing between military response plans.

What's weird is that you can't distinguish between fact and fiction of the subject. But that's not my job, I'm just pointing out that Obama is a finger pointer who plays the blame game, and most often is far misguided on who he should be pointing at.

What's the fictional part? There weren't worldwide U.S. embassy protests in reaction to the film?

I was talking to beamer, not you Sepharo -- you just got in the quote as he quoted you - you know how the quotes work right?

You specifically addressed it to both of us.
Do you read your own posts or just write them?


Edit: Hahah oops. Mea culpa. It was "you lack both" not "you both lack". I apologize. I guess it's time I take my own reading comprehension class.

Life for you must be stressful and full of anxiety constantly wringing your hands over how Obama is ruining the world.

I just can't believe it's almost 2015 and someone is still discussing Benghazi. Even the GOP has admitted there was no wrongdoing there.

Context and Comprehension, you lack both and prove it with damn near every single reply. Do you ever put any effort in thinking about what you say before saying it?

Krowen said Obama "got it right" by poopooing Sony's decision to pull the movie due to the "terrorists" winning type of precedent. I stated Obama would be the first to blame them had they not and something happened. I used Benghazi as the example because that's exactly what he did, he blamed an innocent stupid film for the attacks, he acts cowardly.

See? Context. Comprehension.

I need Context? I was responding to the part of your post you didn't restate.

Axis wrote on Dec 20, 2014, 20:32:
While the apologists at large are playing politics to try to make Obama seem something he is not, the world deepens in shit, smoke, and mirrors.

The US is not leading, and the world is fucked - that's the truth of it.

The pantshitting there is amazing.

You're not at all wrong, but sadly game development has entered the "movie prestige" phase in so many ways. Movies are risky and financially expensive but ultimately people want to be tied to these massive ideas, and triple-A games are no different. To give something like that away for free is...well, the anti-thesis of what it stands for, considering that the PC market for it is extremely small anyway. I'm not saying it's right, I just know the realities of the industry and suggesting something sane like you just did would get laughed out of the room by Moneybags McGee.

Well Moneybags McGee would probably be interested to know how much money Valve is making on CS:GO. I know I've contributed /

What killed the game, in my mind (I have not played, but neither had anyone else when most wrote it off) was the lack of modes. True, 90% of online games are probably team deathmatch. And true, 90% or more of the hours spent in CoD were probably online vs single player. But people still want that value in order to spend the money in the first place. No single player was killer. And so many standard multiplayer features being delayed past release was also killer. People wanted all of that.

The game had 5 modes though. Other than SP what other modes were you looking for?

Sucks to be a one trick pony.
This. Despite all the yapping at release about it being the "FUTURE OF FPS", this game was one dimensional. It had a stompy robot gimmick....but it was about as complex as a matchlock.

I still think Titanfall had some of the best mixed gameplay mechanics under one title. It managed to do what Brink tried to do around fast fluid gunplay. The card boost system and having to pick a few before the map and choose when to use them brought nice variation. Using your mech as bait with the option to control it is genius. The game was/is a ton of fun, it just sucks that the community wasn't there and/because it's on Origin.

The roll out and support of this game was out of step with the modern multiplayer game.

Should've skipped the publisher, gone free to play with a market around items and events, and continually released new content both minor and major. Basically it should have been CS:GO in all regards but gameplay.

The small amount of players surrounded by AI bots didn't bother me and the map design around this player count was excellent... but part of these hypothetical ongoing updates should have increased the player count with releases of new maps.

Wait a minute ... what? Why is it wrong to judge the morality of a game that celebrates mass murder, but it's perfectly fine to judge the morality of a game that celebrates people having sex?

Can you explain that to me? I mean, other than the fact that's just how it is here in the good old fucked up U.S.A.?

I'm pointing out it's an apparent exception. I'm not saying I agree with that but that's American culture for you I guess. Murder is okay but sex isn't.

You can take it with a grain of salt because I didn't put it in writing beforehand, but I kind of wondered if Newell was going to reverse this. It seemed out of his character given how hands-off he is and how that's reflected in Valve's culture and products.

Valve shouldn't be judging the morality of creative work (with the apparent exception of (near) porn) and especially not with Greenlight in place. Of course they have the right to do so if they wish, and I think it's dumb that I and others have to clarify that each time. Valve is also in a position where it doesn't need to bend to outside pressure. And to all of you saying this about the money to be made on the sales of this game... Even if this game defied expectations and was a huge AAA sized hit it would be a drop in the bucket for Steam still.
