My mail ballot was received and accepted by the board of elections on 10-17. The fact that anyone feels compelled to physically go to the polls during a global pandemic because of some ludicrous mistrust in the USPS is one of the surest signs of how low this country has fallen.

They aren't going to fill it back in. $1,750,000,000 just vanished; they can't afford to.

That's the only way Amazon can make a profit.
Well that, and the fact that their 8TB drives are really only 7.45tb after formatting.
They're nothing but a bunch of cheats.

Yup. Never buy anything advertised as OEM from Amazon either. I can't count the number of times I've bought OEM advertised goods on Amazon only to be shipped the cheaper non-OEM product. These are for products that say fulfilled and shipped by Amazon as well. If you don't notice, you're getting completely ripped off. Someone really needs to start investigating their business practices as a whole.

I remember buying a TOSLINK cable ages ago from Newegg and this was the case. I left a bad review saying it wasn't OEM. A day later the seller CALLS ME begging me to take down my bad review as he said I was ruining him and he would give me a refund or ship me more cables and I was just like "ummmm... no. Bye."

My GF was playing it with some friends. I watched for a while while nothing happened before leaving and sporadically hearing her scream from her office.

I guess good on them for selling something for $14 that looks like it came straight out of 1998?

This is purchase outright, correct? Not microtransations and pay to win?

Purchase? I'd sooner Ray Purchase than purchase this. This looks fucking terrible.

In the U.S. software engineers are exempt from overtime regulations. The company can pay it but it's not law. I've been in the industry many years, don't know of anyone around here that gets paid OT. But frankly I appreciate being able to work whenever I want and not keeping my time or punchclocking whatever. My particular company can get really busy if there is a hard deadline coming up but crunch is mostly not a thing for us thankfully. But you submit your own estimates for work, so if you're way over what you thought it would be you better have a good explanation or be willing to work some late nights to catch yourself up. Not required, but I'm sure it reflects on your performance if you never get anything done when you say you will.

Right.

As far as I know that exemption not restricted to just software engineers, but any salaried employee vs. hourly in the US. No Overtime pay for Salaried Employees.
That may have changed but I have had a Salary type job in will over 25 years.

Above $36,000. Below that, and they would be eligible.
How do I know that? In order to avoid furloughs when our revenue plummeted in March, my company rolled out short-term pay reductions. I took a 12% hit. The average was 5%. People making $40k weren't impacted, to avoid any chance of putting them below this, but I don't think we have many people making below $45k.

Apparently the Obama administration tried to make it $47,500, or $913 per week, but a court shot that down.

So instead of being furloughed and making an extra $600 a week in unemployment benefits you got to keep working while making even less money. I'd be interested in seeing the total monetary loss you suffered as a result.

A lot of local restaurants have adopted the Chipotle-styled fast food system around here. There are great Korean and Indian ones near me (the Indian one has a glass-walled kitchen so you can watch them cooking everything in big tandoor ovens).

Ginsburg believed in a "living" U.S. Constitution so that directly goes against her vow to uphold the U.S. Constitution. Now she can be replaced by a Constitutional judge and the SCOTUS will be far off better for it.

"Well, bye."

So did the forefather that wrote the Constitution. That was it's whole point.

Take a basic ConLaw class. Even conservatives that claim to hate this notion do it, as their own interpretations change just as often.

Or, instead if taking a course, just read the damn constitution. It's intentionally vague as shit.

And also 250 years old. Did I miss the part of history wherein men became infallible and whatever whims born of the times were to be echoed into eternity?

I've always emphatically hated fish because of the smell. My parents never even tried to feed it to me. I didn't try shrimp until I was nearly 20, and it was awful. I had a "nice" salmon dinner that while more palatable than shrimp was still... not good. I used to make tuna salad at a restaurant and the smell from those #10 cans of the stuff was almost enough to choke me. In my early thirties I finally tried sushi and takoyaki... and they didn't change my mind. Seafood is GROSS.

Same, I never even played the game and I love the shit out of the movie. I was never much a fan of Streets of Rage games beyond Battletoads, Double Dragon and Golden Axe. I couldn't get into Castle Crashers, either.

inXile simply can't seem to make games that sell anymore. Wasteland 3 only made it to 6th place last week (launch was 8/28) and it's nowhere to be seen this week in spite of pretty decent critics reviews (86 MC average). Luckily it also has coop so publishers will hopefully not conclude yet again that single player RPGs do not sell anymore but it's still a pity to see WL3 fail at sales. It doesn't bode well for Microsoft's future plans with regard to inXile either. I don't necessarily mean shutting them down but the types of games Microsoft will greenlight.

It's $60. Hell will freeze over, thaw, and freeze over again before I spend $60 on a Unity-engine game.

Still haven't read Three-Body Problem. I just read some Becky Chambers based on reviews but that was pretty trashy (I should know better than to trust anyone comparing any author to Douglas Adams by this point), and I'm struggling through Dead Astronauts (which thus far is like a fucking mescaline tripper's novel in its incoherency).

I really need a good (new) fucking Sci Fi novel...

...at the very least used a TV like this in the guest bedroom at Grandma's house if they didn't have one as the family TV.

My first bedroom TV was one of these old junkers I pilfered from my grandmother's basement. Used one of those adapters from the quiz to hook an SNES up to it.

God Of War was one of the best games I've played in years, and I played it through the inferior (but adequate) PSN streaming service. Would probably sell like hotcakes on Steam.

No it's not. It's a walled garden that Apple has the same set of rules for EVERYONE on the App Store.

Dude, the fact there is no alternative to the App Store is the reason it's a monopoly. Mono. As in singular. As in there is nowhere to sell a product to Apple users except through Apple. Calling it a "walled garden" doesn't make it somehow different.
