...showrunner David S. Goyer recently said that he’s plotted out eight seasons already.Ambitious. If the show is any good I hope he manages to pull it off.

To be accurate I should correct my statement to say "exactly 50% is below the mean", not the average. But it seems so few people understand the mathematic usage of mean, I tend to substitute average on a regular basis...
Mean is average. You mean median, haha
Cutter wrote on Sep 24, 2021, 16:05:Actually, exactly half is below average. It is just that average is a LOT lower than you would hope it would be.Mr. Tact wrote on Sep 24, 2021, 15:32:
Remember -- half the population is below average intelligence.
Easily half. Probably more like 80%.
Razumen wrote on Sep 24, 2021, 15:12:Yes, your terminology usage is confusing to anyone who is knowledgeable in network protocols. And yes, it was called that and TCP/IP is a common term. However, you are using it incorrectly. Battle.net is using TCP/IP, in the modern world everything uses TCP/IP. Now, in the old days you might use something like NetBEUI (an IBM/Mircosoft network protocol) but in the last 20 years, it was all TCP/IP. Don't feel bad though, 99% of the population has no idea about this stuff, just nerds like me who ended up working in IT.
It's not confusing, it was always called TCP/IP, and is a commonly used term. And there is multiplayer without it, because Battle.net is not the same thing, it is distinct in both name and function.
Razumen wrote on Sep 24, 2021, 12:30:Thanks for the clarification. Your word choice is slightly confusing because obviously it is using TCP/IP, otherwise there would be no on-line play.
I mean TCP/IP, it's not for offline but for P2P connections. Blizzard wants to force everyone to use Battle.net.

Watched the first two episodes of "Foundation" last night. I would sum it up as pretty but dull.
Razumen wrote on Sep 24, 2021, 09:16:I assume you mean off-line LAN multi-player?
Doubt I'll pick this up until someone figures out how to get TCP/IP back after Blizzard took it out after saying everything from the old game would be there.
