Now if they would only grant it to an American patriot, Edward Snowden.

Snowden needs to put in 5 years in the embassy for that to happen.

How does id Software feel about their source code being used commercially without license?
Wasn't the Quake source code released for free? Or am I remembering incorrectly.

New Samsung phones in the US and Canada will have an active FM radio chip.

That would be cool. I have an FM chip in my MP3 player, and I use it occasionally. Be nice to have only a single device though.

Tried playing DS a couple of weeks ago. Hard to get into. I'm not partial to 3rd person action games to begin with, but also I was not happy with the movement either. The graphics didn't hold up well either.

Neither AMD Threadripper nor nor Ryzen nor AMD FX cpus are affected.

(Nice of tech Arp not to mention the source for its panic info, btw.)


No AMD cpu is vulnerable to the hardware variants that affect Intel systems, and only AMD Phenoms are vulnerable to the software variant that Microsoft screwed the pooch on with its patch...;) (I own an AMD Ryzen cpu running Win10x64 build 17063--and I have not run the manual update patch and thus Microsoft hasn't locked up my machine! Microsoft usually just manages to lock up its own hardware like its tablet hybrids, for instance...;))

From the AMD announcement: The described threat has not been seen in the public domain.

http://www.amd.com/en/corporate/speculative-execution

Do not download and run the manual patch from Microsoft if you are running an AMD cpu. Wait until you get an all-clear from AMD, is my advice. The danger from Microsoft's patch atm is far greater than the danger from the non-exploited proof-of-concepts that have sent the ignorant among us into a sky-is-falling panic!


Lots of BS going on around this thing...;) Reminds me of the idiots screaming panic about Y2k...!...Morons 'R Us, all over again...!


Good advice, thanks Walt.

Really the self driving wrecks probably should be news worthy when they cause the wreck. Not when the other truck runs a red light to hit it.

Yeah, it's worse than it's just the fact that it's fucking clickbait. It's actually irresponsible to paint automated driving in a bad light given what a boon it will be: Thousands of lives and billions of dollars saved annually. The more people distrust them, the slower development and adoption will be.

All it needs is some optimizations, gosh. and maybe some more netcodes
Simply put, Star Citizen has a frame-rate issue so bad it ruins everything. There are glimpses of 60 frames per second when servers are fresh and populations low, but as soon as people join, the frame-rate plummets again. What it means is that you're unlikely to ever see more than 20 frames per second regardless of graphics settings, regardless of PC (within reason), and usually you'll hover around 15 frames per second.

Funny, I was just talking to a friend of mine here at work about this same exact concern about server population and what causes this was going to have on the games performance.

I dont have any good feeling about this game ever performing well. I really hope that we are still able to host our own servers. I have no interest at all being on populated servers and having to deal with asshole pvp grifers.

Who cares if it performs well? It captures your facial animations and renders them on your character! That's amazing!!1

Meanwhile, back in reality, the typical Blue's sheep never said a word when Obama did the same thing.

http://wapo.st/2CKG9Nm

http://bit.ly/2mjjpOi

Keep the hate flowing, it warms us all on these cold nights.

Daily reminder: http://bit.ly/2Eqiges

1) How many people here do you think complained?

2) What do you think the complaints are about?

3) Did Obama's plan have the same issues they're discussing?


Answers:

1) Hardly any

2) How this meshes with his net neutrality view, the use of public land for this, and the possibility of reducing the speed of broadband

3) No, his plan did not also have these issues



It's like you can't read, and just see complaints about something Trump is doing, see that Obama did something similar, and decide it's hypocritical without actually paying attention to the complaints. It's like if I took your lawnmower without telling you, and you got angry at me, and I called you a hypocrite because you once lent it to your friend.

Excellent analogy at the end, but I'm afraid the nuance will be missed by the intended recipient.

@Mordecai: The flip side to that is coming upon a truly excellent dungeon for which you are completely overpowered, ruining the experience. I recall a fantastic Morrowind dungeon with an amazing vertical design and a green sword at the end. By the time I discovered it, I blew through without a scratch and the sword was useless to me. The disappointment stays with me to this day as an experience that I missed out on.

The flip side is Oblivion, where I took my time getting to the city with the first Oblivion gate that gets overrun by daemon. I was probably 10 levels higher than the devs expected, so all the daemon were jacked up too. The NPCs are supposed to assist you, but all the daemon slaughtered them instantly, leaving me to spend hours isolating each daemon individually so I could kill it and proceed with the quest. This should have been a 20 minute battle, but was ruined due to scaling.

I don't know what the solution is, but it needs to be done with much thought and testing.

In their defense, grammatically "some" means more than one. I'd say out of twenty million people that two are looking forward to it.
