Hey Quinn,

Thanks for the offer! If you haven't already claimed them, I'd be interested in:
Call of Duty: WW2 (Nov 2019)
Grip (Jan 2020)
Planet Alpha (Oct 2019)
Frost Punk (Feb 2020)

Thanks!

Of that selection I only have Grip for you which I e-mailed to you. Sadly I didn't have the Oct month because I paused or cancelled back then, before Humble gave a preview and all was a gamble. That was a good month...

Enjoy!
Hey, sweet. Thanks.

I figured some of them wouldn't be available, which is why I put a few. Been meaning to get Grip for a while, so this is perfect! And now that they've just released a VR mode, I'll have to give that a shot as well.

I have to agree with the sentiments others have expressed about Tiger King. It is a show about trash humans just being trash. I couldn't make it through the first episode nor do I really wish to push forward through it.

I couldn't make it through more than 3 eps of Breaking Bad for the same reason.

Is Terry Gross still actively hosting? When I listened last year, there was someone different hosting.

It was the lowest-rated show on TV for three of its four seasons, and the second-lowest for the other one. The Wikipedia says this makes it "one of the lowest-rated shows in television history to be renewed through four seasons by its parent network."
Intelligent, clever, niche, and well-crafted TV is usually rates poorly. HBO (and Netflix, etc.) get around this by making these kinds of behind their paywall: just make that one show that appeals enough to get someone to shell out the $15/month: Barry, Silicon Valley, The Leftovers, etc.

Frontier prepares for bankruptcy, regrets failure to install enough fiber.

Took government money to build infrastructure, then didn't build infrastructure. Maybe they should be nationalized.

The “Rick and Morty” trailer is supreme.
I can't wait. It looks like Snuffles Snowball is back. The question is, is it an April Fool's joke?
Holy fuck, if that's their idea of an April Fool's joke...
Better not be a joke because that would derail my freight train.

It actually doesn't sound like a bonus so much as a contractual revenue share. If your boss kept saying you had higher sales than ever before, you'd expect your revshare to be high.
Yeah, if employees are suspicious of shenanigans, they should sue and get a peek at the books in discovery. I'm sure a lawyer would take the case based on % a payout if the case looks reasonable.

This Woman Accidentally Turned Herself Into A Potato For A Video Meeting And Couldn't Figure Out How To Fix It. I keep getting teammates who do that in-game.

I've turned into a potato since I started WFH two weeks ago.
I need to start working out again.

Yup, but not fired like Trish Regan. Laura is a star, and a money maker, after all. All this shit is coordinated at the top. Trish's firing was just optics, not morality or ethics on Fox's part.

Who knew that letting thousands of people die was the key to increasing your approval rating?

Was listening to Nate Silver today. He mentioned that Trump's bump is pretty minor relative to other world leaders, and he doesn't expect it to sustain. The example he gave was how political parties always get a bump after their conventions, usually 6 points or so. So a bump of two points, while in a positive direction, is actually indicative of a problem.

First let me say I am generally supportive of workers against employers. Somewhere around 1983 I attempted (along with others) to unionize the grocery store I was working at. We lost the NLRB vote. That said, while I'm sure I don't know the complete story, what I have read/heard tends to make me think Amazon was not unreasonable in firing this guy. He was seemingly violating the kind of safety measures he was protesting for. Just because Amazon treats their workers badly generally, doesn't mean everything they do is wrong.

And just because politicians are clamoring for an investigation isn't much evidence of anything. Ask anyone from either side of the political street.
It's telling however, that Amazon's reputation is so bad that no one wants to take their side.

Soon games like this will be streaming only. Then there won't be any way to do aimbots or wallhacks.

There will ALWAYS be hackers/aimbots, unless the companies completely control your PC/console/whatever device. Even then, there will be some end user hacks/physical mods.

It would certainly start to cut down on cheaters, but they will be around as long as a game is popular and online.

Aimbots and wallhacks work by interacting with the client code on the user's PC. When you stream a game, a la NVidia Now, there's no client code to interact with. It gives the publisher/developer complete control of the code. It also eliminates any modding of course.
