uBlock Chrome extension

Caution, this is not uBlock Origin, so don't be confused by the title of this extension.

You can disable the "acceptable" ads with a single click in the options menu for the plugin. I dislike Adblock Plus because its a fucking memory pig but the whitelist is purely optional.

While that is true... the crux of the matter is that they are basically accepting bribes / extorting (depending on your point of view) to whitelist. If everyone switched to uBlock, that crap wouldn't happen, since nobody would pay adblock with a minuscule user base.

Unfortunately most of my fellow Americans ARE stupid. They keep voting in the same idiots. Want to change the Status Quo? Vote out EVERY fricken incumbent.

(I'm registered non-partisan, BTW, because both parties piss me off, and I try to vote for the lesser of two evils depending on the individual... not their party)

Interplay lost their dispute with Bethesda because they didn't get the MMO to the milestones they had to so I believe Bethesda owns the whole thing now. They probably sold off what little they had to whoever is now apparently not developing Earthrise any more.

Yes, you are correct... I was just following the trail of "Project V13", which was originally the Fallout MMO, and stating it's apparent current status. ... or non-status, if you like.

How's that Fallout MMO coming along, Herve??

Bwwwaaaaaahahahahahahahaaaaahahahahaaa


Well... it apparently turned into Earthrise... Masthead and Interplay don't seem to be involved anymore... Last Blog entry is on April 2014 and the forums are offline.

I'd have to say "It's dead, Jim"

I work in IT, and collect our replaced HDDs for various servers.

Best destructive method I've found is a 5.56 green tip round. Nice little hole in the front, extravagant metal flower out the back (at least for the metal platters. The glass platters turn into glitter machines!)

While that may be the fun way to do it, we actually use a mobile shredding service.

Yahoo now warns users if they're targets of state-sponsored hackers... only if their ad-blockers are turned off.

Humans Are Slamming Into Driverless Cars and Exposing a Key Flaw... They don't react to tailgating and are in da effin' way!

Seriously though... from the article... they often stop in the middle of a turn to double check as they make that turn... yeah... they'll get hit because most humans don't need to do that.

Nice tech demo. And no... that wasn't intended as an insult, because that's exactly what it is.

I switched to uBlock Origin awhile ago after finding ABP to be a bit of a resource pig. Nothing bad to say about uBlock, just works.

Yup.

As great as this news it... I hope it doesn't interfere with the development of Underworld Ascension, nor Night Dive's attempt at a SS1 full remake.

Happy to see that they are still funded.
If only more games could get this type of backing.

Unfortunately they have blown most of that wad and are only at Alpha 2.0... do the math.

Source please.

Sure... The Escapist Article... and I pretty much believe a majority of it.

Star Citizen Employees Speak Out on Project Woes - Update 2

"They've spent $82 million dollars, and what is there to show for that? There's a demo, a racing demo, a single first person shooter level, and an area where you can walk around. For $82 million," CS2 stated. Most of the sources feel this is the reason for continued fundraising through the website - to "extend the dream" for as long as possible. They also feel this is the motivation behind the inflated pricing on digital products that, at this moment, allegedly don't exist.

Doesn't really matter even if it were true. We all know they have some skeleton crew working on HL3 for years now. But without it being a priority for the company even its existence doesn't guarantee it'll ever see the light of day.

Didn't you know? Gabe Hired George Broussard as the Lead Designer right after 3DRealms sold DNF.

That's better. However he should still be going to prison at 18 IMO. Now these are the kinds of sentences that will act as a deterrent.

These aren't your typical in-town juvenile facilities (like a local adult sheriff / police jail would be)... these are full time prisons/camps for hard core juvenile criminals.

So, don't worry... Bubbas exist in the Juvy Prisons too.
