@eRe4s3r, no it's a completely white blank page with the video in the center(more or less).

@RedEye9, I am running some script blockers but the only script I'm blocking is doubleclick.net. I don't think I've got a cookie issue, most are deleted every time I close FF. I'll try to reboot.

@Mr. Tact, I'm sort of glad you see it too, since I'm not the only one. But I wish neither of us was seeing it.

@MeanJim, I don't see it, so I might have to log in to find it.

@Creston, All right, I'll keep working on it.

Thanks all.

What's with the new youtube, it's just a white page with video. There's no posts at the bottom nor a list of relevant videos on the right. Are we required to log in to turn it off? I never do, hate being tracked.

They won't donate the food they throw out. Hell, they won't even allow people to dumpster dive for it or give it to staff. They actually make sure it's run through a trash compactor so no one can have it/use it.
That would suck, but I'm not sure it's true. Could it be a state or federal law/issue? If there are laws, they should always side on feeding the hungry. I know 50% of the food here in the US, is wasted. Personally I've got a fairly low carbon footprint. Iirc, the single biggest contributor to global warming atm is meat (red and white) production/processing.

Afaik, the Austin stores give food to charities and food kitchens each night. I do have a real problem with how they treat the employees. They should/could feed them for free, if the only other choice was to throw food away.

Despite Whole Foods flaws (i.e. mackey, the drumpf of grocery) it was a pioneer against Mindless pesticides, processing and antibiotic usage in food products. Not to mention, globally supporting lower carbon footprint agriculture and helping to establishing international guidelines.

Oddly they never seem to advertise their budget line 365 and now seem to be building a different chain for it.

They might have started out that way but have since slid into the same corporate slime pit that all the other grocery store chains operate under. Their form of exploitation is a special kind of sleaze though, asparagus water anyone?

Amazon knows what they're doing, harvesting data and money from people with more money than brains.
Afaik, they didn't start making the product. I.e. it was started by other companies and they started selling it. My guess if it became popular (not clue, never tried it) they would start making their own. That really speaks more to the people who buy it, than the fact a store carries an item for pretentious customers.

And they're also pro-food waste, pro-exploitation of workers/anti-union. They don't give a fuck about any of the stuff you mentioned that's just public relations bullshit.
What is pro-food waste? I agree their worker policies suck but once again that falls on drumpf of grocery. He's a complete dick, no doubt.

I shop at the corporate store in Austin but don't ever buy exploitative items. It's better than buying at a store which doesn't have any safety policies on the products they sell. And if another chain store does has safety policies it's because Whole Foods forced the market, to make better choices.

Glad your feeling better! I keep wondering if there's going to be an increase in motion injuries with gamers and VR controllers.

First Brink, now Shadow Warrior.

I need to stop buying games if they're just gonna keep giving them away for free after a few years. I'd save a bundle.

Crap. I missed Brink. What's up with these free recent games?

Brink and Shadow Warrior aren't really recent. SW came out 4 years ago and Brink came out 6 years ago.
Pretty sure he means 'recently free' games.

30 days of night, is what happened in Austin. It's worth it though since, Melissa George is running around in a bikini killing vampires.

Thanks both, I'll check them out.

I was actually using Foxit because it was barebone compared to the huge adobe footprint.

Riiiiight, bots know exactly where you are at all times, don't have to search. Nor are they affected or effected by things like fog or bloom. They have autoaim and can see across the map without any restrictions. Duh?

Yeah, as 2K they are forced to change but so all their titles are still based on consoles. I.e. Bioshock Infinite was the last PC title I played from 2K.

Despite the fact that funcom are talented, they constantly push their fans and potential fans away with their absurd pricing. Not sure if everyone remembers but funcom at one time (iirc about 2 years) were charging $240 for TSW if you bought all the episodes. They didn't have a package deal att. By contrast EQ, the longest running mmog still in development with 23 expansions was charging around $40.
