They noticed bizarre behavior how?

When his face popped open, and there was a tiny 3 inch alien in his skull controlling his body, they knew something was a bit off.

Love me some Richard Simmons. Get better soon!

Snowden Tried to Tell NSA About Surveillance Concerns, Documents Reveal.

Which is what Snowden said two years ago, and the gov't refuted him. Surprise, surprise, the gov't was lying. Fckers.

That make me sad and mad, you're not allowed to post here anymore and ruin my afternoon like that.

Ask him what his latency is like, you'll feel better.

why would his latency be high? you know, other than internetting from pluto?

I assumed he was being snarky and meant that it was just as awesome as his bandwidth.

It is. All paid content is cosmetic IIRC.

QUOTED FOR TRUTH. (Sorry about caps but it had to be done)

Also, these people who have been saying that Windows 10 is a vast improvement over 7. How? How is it an improvement??? None of you in this thread have posted one single fucking shred of evidence of this, not even an argument to support your claims. You have the gall to call Win10 a better OS than 7 and yet MS keeps pulling their shady douchbaggery day in day out...


Wow, you seem mad.

It - starts up faster, sleeps faster, restarts faster, logs in faster, logs off faster, uses (by my systems resources) less resources, has a far better search, better restore, has standard programs that meant I don't need to install secondary programs to support certain peripherals, supports smart searches (I have disabled - cortana), FAR better settings menu/options, more accessibility options for frequently used programs, you can still use win7 style menus for most settings too for those adverse to change.

It's like people were expecting it to make you coffee and blow you in the morning (That'll be win22 when AI is better, though a poor attitude may cost you the blow.). Those improvements are a MASSIVE improvement over the previous OS. I am sorry you'd rather insult than look at it objectively because you dislike their douchbaggery.

Nice summary, thanks.

Any compatibility issues so far?

C) If man ever creates an actual AI then they can't own it without it being a slave. So is that what they're promoting? Slavery? They'd like the rest of us to be slaves so why not.

Are dogs and cats slaves? How would that be any different?

And the danger inherent is that machines will do our thinking for us. Even now most people don't question what they see on a screen. What is the AI makes a mistake? People take it as gospel and you can see where everything goes off the rails.

How is this any different from religion, and the issues we have to deal with there?

While I might agree the animals are less likely to attack while on land, I'm in little danger sitting here at my computer -- relatively, they are in greater danger and moving closer to get a better video is ill-advised.

Actually, you're in NO danger from that alligator sitting at your computer. Those guys taking phone vids are in little danger, although there is a slight risk. It would only attack if it felt threatened, and you'd have to get pretty close for that. If that was a grizzly or a water buffalo, I'd say they were auditioning for the Darwin awards.

Fun fact: alligators and other reptiles don't process lactic acid well, so they can't sprint very far before exhausting themselves. That's why they're by and large ambush predators.

I didn't count, but it seems that the opinion is split about 50/50. I'll have to think about it a bit more, but I've got some time if I want it for free.

I have about 12 computers in my shop.
5 of them are running Win 7 the others Win 10
They are all connected to the net.
Every morning I turn them on and the Win 7 machines display the Win 10 nagware.
Every morning I use the 'x' to close said nagware.
Never has any of those machines auto updated to Win 10.
This also includes every Win 7 machine I have sold in the past 6 months.
"Auto-updates" stays on the "internet hysteria" side of the page until I witness it personally.

p.s
I also find it hilarious when people bitch and whinge about Win 10 privacy when their smartphones are spying on them 24/7 EVEN when you think you've turned it all off.

I wonder if the nagware treats business versions of Windows differently from home versions.

I was considering to upgrading to 10 finally when I feel ready and I have time to do it(I like to ensure all the crap in 10 is customized and ms crap turned off after i upgrade) but after all the nagware and constant assault by MS to upgrade I am going to resist it for as long as I can even if its beyond free upgrade time periond. F MS.

I heard that if RSI runs out of money, they'll get funding from MS in exchange for making Star Citizen a Win 10 exclusive.

My Win7 install is pretty old and getting slow, and I just picked up a fat SSD. Was going to install a fresh instance of Win 10. I figure they've ironed out the bugs by now. Any reason to stay on Win 7?

Anything it wants to!

The nuttiest part is the other guy videoing it that keeps appearing in the frame. I kept wondering if that guy had any idea how fast alligators run. The answer is 11 mph, so I'm guessing even that monster could outrun a 60 year-old-golfer.

Yeah, that was my first thought too. I watched enough of Rob Bredl's show "Killer Instinct" back in the day to know how fast those things can move when they want to. That was just stupid on his part. Lucky he didn't end up a Darwin Award contender. I'm guessing water hazard takes on a whole new meaning at that course.

Alligators aren't lions. They hunt and feed in the water. Those guys were in little danger.

More Than 40 Million Americans Age 50-Plus Play Video Games…

Candy Crush doesn't count...

I remember back in the early 90s, I bought an old Unisys 286 for my GFs parents. I installed Tetris on it, and sure enough her mom and dad both 60+ and retired got totally addicted to it. The mother used to play for hours a day.

Now it all makes sense why DICE went WW1 for Battlefield though, 2142 sequel would have been at odds for Tittyfall 2.

That, and there's this whole Hundredth Anniversary thing for WW 1. I think BF1 is a bold unexpected move that hasn't been tried by a major studio yet, and I hope they pull it off. The slower aircraft especially make sense for BFs smaller maps, as does the close visceral combat. Besides, who HASN'T wanted a Mauser where the holster doubles as a stock?
