A Michigan man found $43,000 in a second-hand couch. He returned it all.

Now we have confirmation from Amazon that not only did it licence Lumberyard to CIG (which was publicly known) but also CryEngine, meaning that CIG cannot be in breach of the GLA with Crytek. Not that Crytek's claim had any merit, as the GLA specifically included Star Citizen AND Squadron 42.

Crytek attempted to extort CIG and now it looks like it will be on the hook for over $500,000 in legal costs, possibly a lot more. Crytek should be focused on paying its own employees rather than filing baseless lawsuits that will create even more of a blackhole in its finances.

Are you privy to the original contract between Crytek and CIG? If not than how would you possibly know? All I've seen is the usual convoluted mess of their PR people engaging in he said/she said.

Haven't they been releasing the contract text? I could have sworn I read some of it last year.

Quit using that term, it is ignorant and wrong.

Non-residential non-citizen? (e.g., "alien"). Instead of being simply pedantic, I wish you'd addressed his larger point. It's a discussion worth having, and it sounds like both of you are largely on the same page.

One can hold that what Trump is doing is horrific and cruel on the one hand, while still understanding that a country needs to control its borders. If you have come into the country bypassing the entrance criteria that a country has set up, you've entered illegally, and are an alien. In a hospital ER, I'm sure the number of aliens is a relatively small percentage, and the large majority of uninsured waiting for services are Americans. Allowing more legal immigration, while at the same time making healthcare services available to all people within our borders should be the end goal.

Our immigration policy is in desperate need of an overhaul. That said, our government can barely support the current number of poor and indigent Americans. I wish our system was set up like Sweden: anyone goes to the doctor and it's all completely covered by taxes. That's not our system though, but I hope it is some day. It makes no sense to have private health care: it needs to be a public good like fire, police, military, electric grid (Enron sez "Hi"), etc.

Thankfully Ole' Joe is one of the final dinosaurs in the political space who grew up in a time before videogames were a part of virtually every childhood to at least some degree. These antiquated, wrong-headed views will die with him and his ilk.

And Jdreyer, how can you possibly claim he was not speaking about videogames? He literally said:

Yeah, video games. ...

I'm not sure how you can even try to spin that as anything else.
He was talking about the guy that makes video games. Yes, I don't think he's a video game fan, but that's not the thrust of his rant. He's really pissed at the tech Bros, just like all of us.

A woman left the ER to find another hospital after a long wait. Two hours later, she was dead

After waiting more than two hours, the 25-year-old left and went to seek help at an urgent care, the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner said in a report. She collapsed by her car as soon as she arrived at the urgent care, and was pronounced dead not long after.

Her family wants to know why it took so long for her to get medical help.

"I really don't think they cared about my daughter," her mother, Yolanda Ward, told CNN affiliate WDJT. "She should not have been waiting out there that long."

I have the best medical care my job provides, and yet I once went to the ER because I was experiencing numbness in my forearm and bicep. I waited an hour and a half to see a doctor, and then another two and a half hours to sign out. There are two reasons why it took so long. First, the vast majority of people in the ER were low-income individuals and families — likely many who are not legal citizens. Second, only one doctor was handling a caseload of 75 patients. I remember the number when another doctor asked her; she was overwhelmed. Ms. Ward likely encountered a similar issue with that ER. The hospital is partly to blame for not having adequate staff to handle their load. There's also the problem of low-income and illegal residents using area ERs because no other options for health care exist. In any event, a bad situation all around. Real sorry for her family's loss.

We're a small, poor country that can't afford to pay for healthcare for all.

Oh, wait, that's not right. We spend more per capita than any other nation with worse outcomes. So there's plenty of money, we're just incredibly wasteful with it. As someone who works in healthcare, I've seen this first hand.

You guys are focusing on the wrong things. He's not really speaking directly against video games, but against all the arrogant tech-bros that all of you rail against constantly: Zuck, Cook, Nadella, Kotick, Riccitello, all those douchebags. The Leahy thing is actually countering Trump's claim that games cause mass shooting.

Valve as a game development studio died a while ago. They haven’t done anything of note outside of hats and weak iteration of the counter strike franchise. Oh and Dota2, which will always be in League if Legends shadow. Sad no more L4D, but not surprised.

Everyone take a shot every time you see the F-word. Innocent

Sorry, I'm pretty passionate about devs not being treated like slaves, 40-50 hours a week like everyone else does should be perfectly doable.

I can agree with that. I put in 50-70 hour weeks as one of only two programmers on a large eCommerce platform. It's too much work and we're spread out too thin trying to keep up. There's no sense that they'll bring on another resource to assist.
As long as you keep working 70 hours a week, why would they?

We don't have enough time to finish the game. We have about 10 months of work left. So let's just delay 5 months, burn out our developers, and still end up releasing the game too early.

Exactly what I was trying to say, but I said with a lot more foul language, because I've been a gamedev. I might have to return to it, too, now that I'm unemployed. ugh.
What's your thoughts on unionization?
