Obama administration says Constitution protects cell phone recordings

The Obama administration is aware that there IS a Constitution? Who knew?

Election is coming up. Politician's amnesia wears off for a few months. Only just enough to get reelected.

Why do these company layoff press releases have to come across so callous and impersonal? They sound like they are talking about emptying the cafeteria garbage bins. These are actual, real live people who are losing their jobs in a bad economy. Would it kill them to at least pretend they care?

Yeah really. Did they do everything they could to keep these people?? Business is business, but morale a also part of keeping productivity up.

So will the game fully support/allow modding? If so, then that's a glimmer of hope.

Typical fascistic techniques are the same used by banking, tobacco, big oil, pharmaceutical companies and our government to start wars like Iraq.

Yes and it is accelerating.

Corporate conglomeration used to overthrow democracy, has nothing to do with free markets.

You mean they are overthrowing constitutional government by 'rule of law', right? They aren't trying to overthrow democracy, imo. They just rig the elections and that works to legitimize the policies that have already been decided. Democracy isn't under threat. They'll let us vote while they do the complete opposite. This works to disenfranchise the masses. They'll give government-backed sports to the disenfranchised masses as an outlet.

I remember Obama's inauguration and felt the hopeful energy of the crowd as if they had won some sort of socialist revolution. It was false hope of course. Instead we got a corporate socialist who I'm sure would have signed SOPA into law if not for some corporate elite not supporting it.

Skyrim may be considered a little dumbed down from Oblivion, but most of those things that gave Oblivion a hint of complexity where really idiotic ideas in the first place. The chat 'wheel' to improve standing? Who's idiotic idea was that?

So yea, Skyrim may have been dumbed down a bit, but it is still 10x the game Oblivion was. As much time as I spent in that game I spent every second going 'WHY IS THIS GAME SO FUCKIN GENERIC?!?!'. Mods helped but nothing could take away the fact that 95% of that game was the same content over and over again set in the most boring fantasy world I've ever seen.

Agreed. Skyrim is great. My biggest complaint with Skyrim is that the quests should be more about obtaining skills and tieing that into the story. As it is, the game just hands skills to us freely from constellations and that doesn't give me much of a sense of accomplishment.

eRe4s3r I found your response more insightful than your previous post. I hear what you mean. Let me respond please.

What you say is like saying that "what happens is a event that we can't change or influence" but that's nonsense,

Well, more or less, yes through conventional means I believe that is mostly true. The evil system has a nearly unstoppable momentum. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, too. So even if we try to stop it, that will only amplify it even further, especially if there is civil unrest.

but that's nonsense, the system exists because we accept the system

Really? You sure about that? It sounds nice to read, but I don't entirely believe that's true. Sure, subconscious acceptance of the system is one element, but I think there's more going on.

Somewhere down the line, there is this absurd thought that every human has to have everything other humans have. So humans work their entire life for it.

Our monetary system based on perpetual debt not only promotes this behavior, it mandates it. The dollar is a FIAT currency, and it is in my opinion a closer cause of what you see with so much greed. With debt comes fear. Fear makes people do things they wouldn't normally do. And since there is never enough money in the system to pay off everyone's debt, this brings even more fear. Nearly everyone is running around like frightened chickens to pay off their loans. Underneath the greed we clearly see, there is fear. Knowing that it is fear, I hope can bring us compassion for them.

A life that is short, and the best years of which are wasted working to achieve something that you can only enjoy when you are old. What idiocy.

Yes. So true. Enjoy the now.

Not to mention that people continuously save money which thanks to inflation literally evaporates into thin air.

Inflation discourages savings and encourages spending. The cause of this is the money system that is mandated on us by Congress and the banking cartel that controls and manipulates it: the fed reserve. Follow the money.

The only real value in this world is physical goods.

I respect you greatly and want to let you know that this is an unconscious presumption of egoic conscious, and it is false. But I think in context of what you say, you are correct. Commodities have value, our FIAT currency's only value is trust.

These companies are utilizing the system of government placed before them. This is corporatism. If you don't play the rules Congress puts out there, your competition will use them to put you out of business. So IMO this is the destructive cycle of tyranny. It is due to human insanity due to egoic consciousness. Saying that it is solely a ruthless greed for money is missing the bigger picture.

It's history repeating itself. It's not their fault the system is evil. No, the gaming industry isn't entirely psychopathic.

Anyone else feeling dirty for buying games from companies that support killing the internet and your civil liberties in the process? Because if there's ever been a good reason to boycott those fuckers, this is it.

Yeah this is their war on the consumer. Very bad PR. Yeah makes me feel dirty buying their games. The Internet is more important than the gaming industry, for sure.

Paranoid Jack wrote on Dec 28, 2011, 12:48:
edit:To explain the shooting before the lock on... the game is sometimes out of sync by a second or so. I've run around the corner of a building while under fire several times and after rounding the corner died from bullets hitting me which clearly couldn't have hit me since there is no longer a line of site. So how could they hit me? Because on the other end (the guy firing at me or the server side) I'm still out in the open. Been the same with all the Dice games that I can remember... at least.

BF2 this wasn't an issue for me. BF3 this is a serious problem. It's a way to hide latency (lag) at the cost of realistic behavior. I really hope they fix this. I've been down behind cover for up to 2 seconds and still taking hits as if I was in the open due to this 'bug.'

A friend bought a copy for me. It's alright. I'm not that much of an MMORPG type though. I like BF3 much more. I'm much more excited about the Skyrim mmo/multiplayer mod but that will take a while yet.

These MMO's are in a way, not really a game but more of an avatar/alter ego creator that takes weeks/months to do.

Far Cry 2's "Capture the Diamonds" multiplayer PvP is fun. The community MP maps are great too. Too bad there is no way to chose what server you join. Ruined a potentially good MP game.

News Comments > Unofficial Skyrim Performance Boost
37. Re: Unofficial Skyrim Performance Boost Dec 25, 2011, 03:11 LittleMe
 
Yeah if this was a mission critical application, being cautious about speculating is appropriate. But this is a game and we are getting poor relative performance in cities and some other areas and then these experienced and known individuals point out apparently obvious discrepancies in how Skyrim PC was compiled. I'm inclined to believe them.

Sure, maybe compiling it with those flags on makes the game unstable but that again points to problems with Bethesda's methods more than anything else. There's a recurring theme here with their lack of attention with developing for the PC platform.

it democratizes information, and thus it democratizes power.

Great article and read but he's wrong in this quote. The Internet is not democratic. The Internet is far closer to anarchy. I mean that in a good way.

it's like watching the capitalist equivalent of the fall of the soviet union. you guys seem to be in such a hurry to hand off the torch to china? doing a good job so far.

Corporatist, not capitalist. Or another phrase is 'crony capitalism'. The United States hasn't been capitalist for a very long time now. But yes, I agree we are doing a good job of collapsing our society with crony laws like SOPA.

BTW, Better Landscape Skyrim mod is a must. No performance or RAM hit as far as I know.

Tried it, didn't like it. Seems to have an odd sort of grainy texture to it.

Oh yeah are you using AA? That will smooth that out.

Large Address Aware, is that necessary for a 64 bit Windows system? I mean do you need to have that on even on a 64 bit Windows system?

It is not required on a 64bit OS but then the game will be limited to only 2GB of RAM because it is a 32bit game. With LAA it can use over 3GB of RAM but no more than 4GB.
