She was the PTA mom everyone knew. Who would want to harm her?

The schadenfreude is strong with this one.

man that was such a bizarre story, like, what is wrong with someone that they would risk an opulent life in the 'burbs in the name of petty revenge.

and, as a frequent visitor of irvine, it really is lowkey creepy urbanism as fuck.

The whole Windows 10 debacle just keeps getting better. Microsoft is the worst thing to ever happen to the PC gaming.

Fixed that for ya.

It does seem as though MS is being extra shitty lately. The heavy handed upgrade to 10 campaign, the on-going problems with windows update for vista/7/8, and continued efforts to try and force people into the cortana, xbox, MS experience that nobody asked for or wants. I'm kind of surprised I don't see more tech article calling them out. Even the outrage over the 10 upgrade campaigned seemed tame considering they resorted to out right trickery to get people to update.

On the topic of the scientifically proven happiness thing, that was a major reason for not moving out of my apartment recently. My daily commute is only 15 minutes, and while it's still full of morons who shouldn't be driving, it's only 15 minutes of morons who shouldn't be driving.

seriously, i think it's surprisingly illuminating how much you can tell about a person by the way they drive, and if you drive more than, say, a mile a day, you will unfailingly run into some asshole who drives like the worst humanity has to offer. every. god damn. day.

what really grinds my gears is the obliviously selfish types, who don't give a fuck about the rules of the road and do what they want no matter what. 55 in a 65 zone in the fast lane of a 4 lane highway with 10 cars lined up behind you? don't give a fuck. nobody in front or behind me for a quarter mile, and dude could wait the extra 2 seconds to let me pass before merging? don't give a fuck. people really suck on the road.

Hah, like the WASD standard is something to be proud of. ESDF is far superior, you have much quicker and easier access to other hotkeys and your hand rests in a better position. But it's like the Imperial vs Metric system argument. So many people already used WASD, so they just stuck to it, because changing was too hard.

I genuinely don't understand the ESDF argument. I mean, if you prefer ESDF, whatever of course, but why is it supposedly so much quicker and easier access? It's still the same keys. For most normal sized people, they're all within easy reach of your left hand. What does it matter where it "rests?" (so to speak).

you have more access to keys around your hand, esp. on your pinky side. for the longest time i was actually a GHJ-N player XD until i just couldn't be bothered to reconfigure the controls of every game anymore. but because of those days i still have a very dexterous pinky =)

SETI has observed a “strong” signal that may originate from a Sun-like star.

I'm not saying it's aliens...

like i said, the false PR doesn't change the fact that the core game is exactly what i expected. the PR stuff was just lipstick on a pig, but i expected a pig all along. i don't see why everyone else didn't.

i really don't get what people were expecting. it's exactly the game i thought it was going to be. there were some misleading statements, but the heart of the matter is that it was a procgen game all along, which meant no depth, just relabeled actions repeated ad nauseum. with such a small dev team they really couldn't afford to spend any time on custom content, so the only possible outcome is what it turned out to be - a soulless, (ironically) dead universe.

You know your game has completely failed when not even an Honest Trailer can generate conversation.

At least there's still some hope that get out of bed simulator Star Citizen might be good.

JD are you playing SC at all? or waiting for squadron42/retail version 1.0 like me?

Well, this is weird. I'm getting reports from several people who used a recent CC-released track of mine that a group is claiming my work as theirs. I thought Youtube copyright claims could only be made by people or groups who own the music. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this?

Almost all of my music is released under the CC license so that others can benefit from it in videos or whatever they'd like to use it without fear of financial repercussions, but my music is never for commercial purposes.

Time to lawyer up, buddy.

getty images has been caught multiple times claiming copyright and fees on works of which they had no ownership. maybe this is the same deal, just with music.

you're right, there's a balance to be struck, but i don't see how sex trafficking can be defended as free speech. and this is a congressional subpoena, not a blanket wiretapping law; not something that often sees use, nevermind abuse. to me this is little different from yelling 'fire' in a theater - zero expression and all criminality.

The authorities said any First Amendment rights Backpage has are secondary to the government's investigation into human trafficking on the Internet.

Fuck Backpage.com to hell and beyond, but that's not how the Constitution works, government, despite you desperately, DESPERATELY wishing it were so.

You can't simply declare someone's constitutional rights null and void because "reasons."


well, to be fair they give a pretty good reason - stopping human sex trafficking. the constitution has always stopped at the feet of public safety, i don't see why this should be any different.

IDK, I think to many people are to easily impressed. I really didn't see anything about this that blew me away. To many people are in a hurry to praise what they are seeing, but the reality of it is, hes had 5 years to make this game so far. And this is all he really has to show for? Those of us who originally backed this game are getting very I'm patient with him.

Don't count me among the many who are ready to bow down to him. Everything I've seen here No Mans Sky is already doing.

Took NMS 8 years to ship their game, and they did a lot less than what Roberts is trying to do. Which rather than bowing down, has me scratching my head: how is he going to finish this within budget and make it all work in a cohesive whole while delivering all of those mechanics over a "universe" of 100 unique star systems? The proof of concept is shaping up nicely, but that's just one system...

at a guess i'd say most of the money is sunk in technology development. once they get that down cranking out content is a lot easier. i know they spent years upgrading the crysis engine to 64bit precision as well as a whole bunch of back end networking stuff that had never been done before. i think that's why they're putting out 2.5 and then 3.0 so quickly - their technology is finally starting to mature. still not quite though, as at one point in the video the speeder disappears as he's flying it into the cargo bay and chris says transitioning from the world physics grid to a local one is still buggy.
