Just give me a sequel to X-Wing Alliance or, better yet, give me a Privateer-style game set in the Star Wars universe. So. Fucking. Tired. Of. Jedi. Bullshit.

Here's what you do:

Keep the Serenity, but now she is captained and owned by Mal and Inara's kid. New crew with occasional cameos by the old crew. Minus, of course, Wash and Book.

Hadn't played since alpha 2.1.something or other. Fired it up, did all the updates....and it's not bad for what it is. It certainly wasn't the lagfest I remember from the last time I played it.

2. Keeping personal information secure. Jan 9, 2020, 12:24  Burrito of Peace 
 
"4. Ditch PIN codes and opt for biometric security."

This is problematic. Biometric data can be compelled against your wishes to unlock your phone. A PIN cannot be via legal precedence. This is bad advice. The statement of "Well you can't copy fingerprint or iris data" is horseshit. Iris data is harder but fingerprints are ridiculously easy to spoof unless the phone also has a built in heat and pressure sensors. All you need is something that the person has touched recently.

Bizarre world we live in when alcohol deaths equal fentanyl o.d.'s but one is considered a health crisis and the other is shrugged off.

One has a lobby willing to spend hundreds of millions of dollars and the other does not. Pretty simple math.

How the fuck do you even patent this? And EA sure as fuck wasn't the first to do this.

I am sure this will be challenged in court and inviolated due to prior art.

4. PGP keys, software security, and much more threatened by new SHA1 exploit. Jan 7, 2020, 17:43  Burrito of Peace 
 
Only morons are still using SHA-1. People migrated to SHA-2 years ago and SHA-3 is on the near horizon.

An explanation of the differences between SHA-1 and SHA-2 can be found here.

News Comments > Video Game and Tech Workers Unionization Campaign

17. Re: Video Game and Tech Workers Unionization Campaign Jan 7, 2020, 14:25  Burrito of Peace 
 
I would highly support an IT workers union and I would gladly join it. As with any organization, there are going to be some slackers and downsides.

However, the mentality I see most in those that are anti-union boils down to "fuck you, I got mine". It never occurs to these people that it is not an either or situation. You can have better paternity leave, health benefits, time off, retirement benefits, "at will employment" bullshit protection for everyone. I will never understand why a certain demographic of people believe that licking the ass of the wealthy is going to better serve them than standing united with their fellow workers. Wealthy folks don't stay wealthy if the people whose backs they're standing atop of stop working and thus stop generating that wealth for them.

I remember watching this while standing in the lab that created the Xbox OG at DP when I was at Intel the second time. Behind us on the table were about two dozen Xbox units and 10 or 11 of the silver towers with "Xbox" on the side that served as the developer boxes.

Didn't intend to imply that it was. I think the whole thing, between both sides, is laughably ridiculous. On one hand, you have people that are of little productive value and on the other you have pearl clutchers doing their tired "BUT THE CHIIIIIIIILDREN" shit.

LUL. Imagine using a 1080p monitor in 2020.

I do, daily. Six of them at 144Hz. 4K can blow me. It brings nothing to the table for my usage and, according to the latest Steam survey, nothing to the table for most gamers, either. 4K monitors represent less than 2% of the market.

And it's 24" why? That is way the fuck too small. 40" is the smallest I will go these days. I use a 55" 4k currently and it's blissful perfection. I'll take screen real estate over a few extra frames per second any day.

55"? Fuckin' pleb! At least sack up and buy a 75" 8K QLED like a REAL man would! /s
