wow I had no idea doseone was involved in video games, he's the rapper/musician most famous for his Anticon work, Deep Puddle Dynamics probably being the most memorable: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Taste_of_Rain..._Why_Kneel%3F

Forget weed, re-nationalizing the country's natural resources would do it right there. I've always been a heavy proponent of that. As far as I'm concerned, a country's resources belong to its people, not foreign multi-national corporations.

Does Iceland have a lot of natural resources other than geothermal? It's a pretty small country.

Venezuela has tons of oil, which they nationalized, and their country is doing terribly.

Not the first group you'd expect to object to a Mafia game

Do you mean the DUP or Unionists in general? I'm intrigued by how Northern Ireland is perceived abroad now, are Unionists seen as the bad guys in NY, Boston and other Irish influenced places?

I live in New Haven (right between NYC and Boston on Amtrak), there's a St Patrick's parade here and white people tend to be 50/50 split between Italian descent and Irish descent. While in earlier years there was tremendous support for the IRA cause, after the armistice people don't want to see additional violence, and if they followed the Clinton-brokered peace process closely enough, realize it's not an Ulster Minority oppressing a Republican Majority in Northern Ireland. The IRA are seen to have been freedom fighters, but I don't think there's much knowledge about Ulster violence against Catholics except in a small minority.

you pay monthly or yearly fees on your credit card? you must have some shitty credit.

vendors who accept credit cards pay fees on each transaction, and you pay interest if you don't pay off the balance monthly, but I don't pay any fees when using by credit cards.

iPhones, or to be more precise, Apple products are for people who want their shit to just work. You want to tinker with it, have some control over it? Look elsewhere. Truth of the matter is that if you are the least bit tech savy, and have the inclination to tinker with your hardware and software, you can buy a better product for half the price. Gone are the days when Apple was the only game in town if you wanted a decent smartphone or a good workstation computer.
LOL @ "they just work."
My daughter wanted an Apple so she could face time with her friends.
It has been one issue after another and not easy to fix due to the way ut is set up and locked down.
"Dad why does the phone lose half it's power overnight when noone was using it? "
"Dad how do I get this interview off my phone? It's too big to email."
" Dad how do I copy my mp3s to my phone?" "ITunes " " I hate iTunes! Can't i just copy them?"
"Dad why is my iPhone overheating even though nothing is open?"
"Dad why won't my iPhone connect to wifi? My galtab connects fine."
At least getting her photos off is pretty straightforward.

Battery life, overheating: she has background apps running. Just because nothing is open doesn't mean nothing is running. double click the round button to see all running apps.
Getting stuff of the phone and sharing: iClou, Dropbox, etc
Can't connect to wifi: are you running a custom ROM on your wifi router? Did you leave the wifi settings as default? Tweaking obscure wifi settings on your router can cause problems.

Unless PC components come way down in price, wearable VR, is a long way off for the general consumer.

If you own a smartphone made in the last year or two you can have a simple VR setup for the cost of a $15 Cardboard visor. There's tons of VR apps available for Android, iOS, and even Windows Phone now, and some pretty good ones are free. It's not a Vive, but it's way more impressive than the price implies. Trying out Cardboard is a no brainer for anyone even slightly interested in VR. This is what I bought, works great with my iPhone 6: JoyGeek VR Headset

The gist was the fundamentals are all there and fantastic but all the bells and whistles you really want and need aren't and won't be for a long time yet

Basically what every review echos: great foundation, total lack of content. A recurring theme among early access games is to arbitrarily release 1.0 and then promise "ongoing development".

I'm just playing solo mode, and there are more than enough surprises and places to explore. By "content" you mean what, Captain Shephard having a contrived conversation with an alien? If you haven't played the original Elite in the 80s, you might not be into it. But I've been playing for 20 or 30 hours, and continue to be amazed on how they've modernized and improved on the classic game.

Once I have a couple million credits, I might even play open world, and things might really get interesting.

rofl...yeah but how are you going to get around the NSA backdoor conveniently placed directly inside your router?

I built my own using an old Q6600 based system I had laying around and Linux from Scratch. While I can't say with 100% certainty that the NSA doesn't have very deep roots in to every binary used in the project, I am reasonably certain that they do not. Following the Hardened Linux from Scratch method, I feel comfortable with the security of that router.

Linux From Scratch is a huge amount of work. Gentoo Linux is basically LFS except all the downloading and compiling is automated, and they have a hardened version as well. You still have to trust the Gentoo developers, but it is a completely community oriented project, no big company support. I trust 'em.

OpenBSD is another option: http://opensslrampage.org/
