Squadron 42 is all I wanted in the first place. My early pledge better get me that instead of the fucking MMO.

What a dumbfuck! The folks who actually won the pot should all donate $1 to her and then send her a nice photo of them bathing in cash accompanied by a sucks-to-be-you greeting card.

It's naive to think you can turn M$'s crap off - all it takes is MS to push out another update outside of the usual scope of updates (which they HAVE done in the past) and you're screwed.

You can always tell the inexperienced techs - they're the ones who say 'you can stop something happening' because they don't realize that the end control is always the vendor..

Actually you are wrong, for the most part.

Use the Enterprise LTSB version, and Either DISM, Install_WIM_TWEAK, or NTLITE Pro (easiest method but costs $45) to completely uninstall the packages that you don't want.

The LTSB version updates do not include newer builds, nor updates for packages that you have uninstalled.

If for some reason a build does get pushed, one can always re-run those utilities... but I would gather that would be few and far between.

Inexperienced Systems / Security person

Windows 10 can be tamed if you know what you're doing or are willing to do a little bit of research, for those that don't know how or are too lazy to disable Cortana and the Windows Store apps - let them be data mined.

I agree with the first half of that sentence.
I disagree with the second half. - Everyone should have a clear easy way to opt out of ALL datamining.

Seriously. They're catching up to LOW END discrete cards, maybe.

Actually, the Iris Pro can play most games @ 1080p and medium settings, which isn't awful for an ultra-book and being on the go. The problem is finding a reasonably priced Ultra Book with an Iris Pro. You might as well get a regular laptop with a good discreet card for the same price and better graphics performance.

I'd say Iris Pros are above current sub $100 card's performance, but not as good as $150 cards yet. So, catching up to "lower mid-range" would be probably more accurate, IMO.

I can still get to the content on Forbes with uBlock having "Adblock Warning Removal list" and "Anti-Adblock Killer | Reek" filters enabled.

Not that I go there often, other than a news bit linked from Blues. It just goes to show how Superior uBlock Origin is compared to Adblock Plus.

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.

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.

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.
