Further proof why Bitcoin is not a currency alternative
What, that people who choose easy to crack passwords found in online password dictionaries (instead of the recommended random 64 bit keys) are getting cracked?

Episodic just means I will likely wait until they are finished with all the episodes. Which also means it will probably be on sale too.

VLC fixes more than 100 important bugs and security issues reported on VLC 2.2.1
Must be close to perfection now, no?

Or just use MPC-HC...
I use both the above, and also a third option, the last version of VLC 1.x
(VLC 2 had a bunch of changes I didn't like and was much more CPU intensive)

I was under the impression that you could only "delay" updates on Enterprise and Pro versions but not turn it off completely.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_10
See the chart for info.

Both pro and enterprise let you choose the CBB branch and can defer something like 4-12 months.
Enterprise has a special additional branch you can choose. Branches for enterprise include the Current Branch for Business(CBB) "Business ready" or the Long Term Servicing Branch (LTSB) "Mission critical"
The first lets you defer for some months, the second you can defer forever.
The normal consumer pro windows 10 version, updates are MANDATORY and can NOT be deferred unless you have the special CBB branch.
Windows 10 Home has no such branch and all updates are mandatory.

Some people are saying it's hard, some saying not so hard. I'm guessing it comes down to difficulty and xcom experience.

I've played the training mission, I guess they want you to get used to soldiers dying as you're forced to get two killed. It runs a bit slow on the highest settings for me, but I'm still playing long war, so maybe by the time I'm done with that they'll be some drivers/patches that smooth things out a bit.
In xcom 1 training mission, you lost your entire squad except for 1, so that's not a change. Depends on difficulty and mods, and how you want to play in terms of how many will die (talking xcom 1, I've not tried 2).

Ah, going the Magic the gathering cards way. Tons of expansions and most tourneys disallow most old cards, so always a stream of money coming in.

Brilliant marketing scheme and it works, Wizards of the Coast brings in TONS of money on it. Also a bit greedy, but if people are willing to drop money on it, that's how capitalism is.

Anyone know what melting/unmalting is and the tokens for it?

Sort of, yes.

You can melt pledge packages by refunding them for store credit and then you can use the store credit to buy something else. You will in some cases, especially with older packages, lose some privileges, however.

So lots of tards went and melted packages every time a new ship was announced. They changed their pledges like their underwear and now they are having regrets about e.g. not having LTI (lifetime insurance) anymore.

That's why CIG introduced unmelting now, i.e. you can look at a list of all of your past pledges and repurchase the package for the original conditions, i.e. for example with LTI. What I am not sure about is whether you also get the original price because many packages were a few bucks cheaper in 2012/2013 than they are now.
To repurchase an old pledge you can, however, NOT use store credit so you got to whip out your wallet and buy with real cash EXCEPT if you have an unmelt token (every account got ONE of these AFAIK). So you have a one-time chance to correct a pledge for "free" (store credit from melting) and then after that it's $$$ time.

TL;DR melt/unmelt is a system to further milk impatient and indecisive ADHD retards who jump on every new ship hype bandwagon
Thanks. That helps, since now I know I don't need it. I'll keep my original LTI on Aurora LX that I got for $5. (Plus the original KS pledge). I'll be doing good if I get a game out of what I spent, since I spent less than $50 on it. If I don't, it's not like I spent thousands on it.

LOL. Yeah MS rates as trustworthy about as far I can throw a lead battery, until they rededicate themselves to PC games as they do on a regular basis. Then they show again why they are out to screw PC gamers.

Sepharo wrote on Jan 29, 2016, 16:21:
The problem as I'm reading it that somehow Valve allowed community servers to modify the inventory accessible from the out-of-game menu. That should have never been possible. A community server should be able to have custom weapons, mods, give access to facsimiles of actual normally unlockable weapons skins... It just shouldn't affect the actual inventory or what people see in trade windows. Sounds much more like a Valve bug than the nefarious thing they're making it seem like. Just fix it so they can't do that and move on.
Come on now, that's NEVER been valve's way. They just take a hammer and fix things in the easiest way possible that puts the load on someone else... which is not to fix the bug. At least for the first wave. Maybe they'll do another fix or two in the future before getting around to fixing the root problem (which will likely only happen if someone exploits it even more)

So... if I pledged for the single player space flight sim on kickstarter, wtf does that mean for me? Do I get both? Just the one really one? or?

Edit: Also wtf is this unmelt tokens thing about using up the unmelt before you can get another? What's melting and what's unmalting?

This has nothing on the Two Guys SpaceVenture. SpaceVenture was originally estimated to be released February 2013!!

Now "on track" for Nov 2016.

My nostalgia cost me $170.
Hey I'm still hopeful! I backed at a similar level. Space quest games were some of my favorite when I was a kid.

I haven't given the mini arcade chicken game they released a try, have you?

He could have just marked it early access, seems most were satisfied.

But it's beyond the call to release a fixed version for free

That's awesome that the long war mod authors will finally get some money after all their awesome hardwork. At least I'm guessing that this announcement means a monetary agreement.

I wonder if the sims has all expansions in the sub. If it did, that would draw in a lot of sims players.
Edit: Nope of course not, it only has starter pack of sims 3. Lame!

I'd do it if it was all titles EA has on Origin. Otherwise no thanks
