No, the fat revenue stream they anticipated excited them.

On my last big project I worked 18 hour days, 7 days a week during the last month to hit the release deadline.

Shit like this is exactly why I quit game development for another field. "Crunch" is bullshit, a cankerous symptom of bad project management and it's through the entire industry.

Oh and what I've played of the SP is surprisingly good too, some parts are a bit hit and miss, but all in all it's great "fun". In that it's actually fun, but it's also meant to be ingested as cheap fun, tongue-in-cheek, not taking itself seriously fun.

So it's like Saints Row and MR ROBOT had a drunken hatefuck and this was the result 9 months later?

That was an interesting article on Oswald and one I am inclined to believe, given the facts.

It neatly puts to bed the far fetched theories like the "magic bullet" and the gunman in the sewer.

What clint and Helf said.

I am having a blast with it. While I never played the RCT series, I certainly played the Hell out of Disney Coaster back in the day and this clearly surpasses it in every way imaginable.

Maybe at least people will stop whining about the US for a few minutes now.

Unlikely. The UK is an irrelevant player on the world stage compared to the US or China.

They could make forced anal dildoing at 4pm daily compulsory and no one would give a shit if a Kardashian nip slipped in a Walmart.

Want to take a guess as to where the first stop on their protest tour was?

The unemployment line?

I think this is MS finally admitting they lost. Oh, there'll never be a "Year of the Linux Desktop", that ship has sailed. But they lost in the enterprise sector (especially in big data) because, outside of Active Directory, their offerings are much weaker than the competition. It took them, what, twenty years to figure out that sysadmins don't want or need GUIs on their servers? Even then, PowerShell is a complex beast that while powerful certainly needs some fat trimming to make it leaner and more agile. Case in point:

Windows Server PowerShell script for restarting a network adapter:
$adaptor = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_NetworkAdapter | Where-Object {$_.Name -like "*InsertAdapterHere*"}
$adaptor.Disable()
$adaptor.Enable()

CentOS/RHEL script for restarting networking:
systemctl restart Network-Manager (admittedly this is the hammer method)

You can also simply do:
ifdown-eth
ifup-eth

Also, there's the matter of cost. CentOS is free RHEL, moreso than ever now. If you have a sysop on the payroll whom is worth their salary, you don't really need a support contract.

I absolutely believe that flu shots work as intended, which is to slowly raise the herd immunity for multiple strains of the flu virus over the course of time. Do a tiny fraction of the overall population have a negative reaction to them? Sure, but a tiny fraction of the population still has adverse reactions to aspirin and that's been around for more than 2000 years.

That being said, I don't get flu shots. Invariably, the healthcare system nurses always want to jam them in to my upper arm which causes the arthritis in the shoulder closest to the site to flare up. It's not worth it to me to have a nearly nonfunctional arm for a flu shot. I'll take my chances.

So Skylake-X will eventually become Skylake-E in the Xeon space in, what, 2 years or so? Skylake Xeons were just recently released but a whole new socket (2066? Really?) seems rather silly but Intel IS in the chipset business, too.

Meh. The first one was so boring I didn't even finish it.

Whatever this is, it certainly isn't Thief and it isn't nearly as good as the first two Thief titles were.

I never understood people who spent hours buying a car. It should never take you more than 30 minutes to seal the deal.

In no particular order:

* Research the vehicle's cost with the options you want. There are plenty of resources available online that you can cross-reference. I usually go with median -$500 UNLESS I find a screaming deal at a particular dealership.
* Know, down to the penny, how much you want to pay for the vehicle and stick to it. Do not waver.
* Be ready to walk if you feel someone is wasting your time: "I need to go check with my sales manager." "You have exactly the amount of time it takes for me to walk to my current car and drive home."
* Do not fall in to the "four square" trap. The is easily identifiable by the words "How much do you want to pay per month?" I always flatly reply "That is irrelevant, we're negotiating on the total price of the vehicle."
* After the above, super shitty and sleazy salespukes will say "Is this cash or finance?" Just repeat the last answer. If they say how you plan to pay for the vehicle changes the price...walk and walk fast. You're being setup to be fucked.
* Setup your financing, if needed, beforehand. You will almost always get a better deal than what a dealership will offer UNLESS you have the credit to take advantage of 0% financing.
* Avoid extended warranties, they're nearly universally bullshit. One, they're not usually through the vehicle manufacturer and, two, they're probably only honored at places that are either shady as fuck or way the Hell and gone. Salespukes will try to say "But the cost of replacing your transmission is X dollars! You'll be saving thousands!" I generally reply "If your transmission can't last at least 250,000 miles with only regular service intervals, I need to go buy from a different manufacturer." Replace answer with whatever other part they claim will be expensive to fix.
* You are not there to make friends. Don't be afraid to be firm and, if necessary, a little bit of an asshole. You're there to buy a car for as little money as possible. Salespukes make commission either way, so fuck 'em if they get their jimmies rustled.
* Test drive your vehicle of choice and then go home. Wait a couple of days to make sure that you actually want the car and aren't just in the throes of lust and "gotta have". Unless you're buying something like a GT500 or Corvette ZR1 or any other low volume specialty car, there's a really good chance it'll be there when you go back.
