News Comments > CS: GO Gambling Scam
13. Re: Buying digital skins has never been PHUNNER. Jul 4, 2016, 16:20 LittleMe
 
Our economy as a whole has moved from production to stock market gambling so these guys are doing what our economic model promotes, just in a slightly more unethical way. Now China (and many other countries) does a lot of our production.

Our economic system of 'corporatism' encourages this behavior. So while you enjoy pointing the finger at them, look also at what we've become. If you want it to end, we need to end the fed first.

Yeah not so much the article but what we do online being considered public.

Oh yes what we do online in publicly available areas, of course. It's a public network (of networks). But the ruling says home computers should have no expectation of privacy (even data on the hard drives) if the machine is connected to the Internet..?

Have you looked at Squad? It's 25% off during the Summer Sale.

Yes I have it thank you. It's coming along! I'm sure DICE/EA is watching it's reception to gauge (gouge?) the market.

In today's digital world, it appears to be a virtual certainty that computers accessing the Internet can—and eventually will—be hacked."

So that makes it okay and legal to do? I don't think so. If the "network investigative technique" was run in a script in the browser or flash player then that's reasonable.

Notice how he said 'home computers' because we're now second class citizens behind corporations and government computers which are also connected to the same Internet. It should also apply to them as well since it's the same internet.

What a strange ruling. Home computers are okay to hack because it's inevitable to happen anyway. That's the logic he used?! Really? Did he just declare open season for hackers?

BF1 looks like great immersive fun... For about ten hours. I found BF2/3/4 repetitive and shallow. Not worth full price. I wish they'd do a PRmod inspired expansion or at least open up modding again.

Congrats on the diagnosis Blue! Did you get any bulls eye ring on your skin? I self diagnosed lyme years ago from that and immediately went to get diagnosed and antibiotics. Fortunately I it didn't exhibit any symptoms since I caught it so quickly.

Yes my EVGA 970 ACX 1.0 fans ran loud. Adjusting the fan curve with software helped but they were still loud fans. The Strix 970's are much quieter. Night and day difference.

Thanks for the Palit, Gainward and MSI recommendations.

Happy 20th Birthday Quake!!! The game that had I believe had the most impact in the FPS genre. It brought so much new including things like dedicated servers, 3d acceleration on PC's, 3d positioned sounds and much, much more. id completely hit it out of the ballpark! For better or worse it changed my life more than any other game.

I wish the netquake servers were populated, especially CTF. I miss the grapple.

Historical social and economic repression of specific groups of people, a criminal justice system based on revenge rather than reformation, a war on drugs that most frequently punishes the users, while making the sale extremely lucrative and a political system where ideology and ignorance will trump fact and reason 9 times out of 10. There's undoubtedly more, but those are a few of the big reasons.

Yes THIS!! Outlawing guns won't address the bigger issues you describe here. It's a deeper systemic cause and banning guns will not fix it.

Eh.. in fairness, this last patch revitalizes the game. The only problem I've ever had with it is performance, and that is now moot.

Performance yes but also the widespread cheaters/hax.

Using this tool will remove ALL applications that do not come standard with Windows, including other Microsoft applications such as Office. It will also remove most pre-installed applications such as OEM applications, support applications, and drivers. The tool does not give you the option to recover removed applications automatically and you will need to manually reinstall any applications you wish to keep.

Finally!!

They've always huffed and puffed and thought they took security seriously by paying it due lip service. They don't care and they don't have to care. They still get paid.

I tried many times to get into Bard's Tale. I couldn't. Found it to be a pale imitation of the great game that was Alternate Reality.

Holy crap! Someone who played AR! Yes, that was a freaking amazing game(s). Too bad the series never made it past the second module.

Thank you! Awesome! Yes very sad they never got another game out. Did you know in 2001-ish they were trying to make an MMO version? Nothing much came of it except some concept artwork and music remixes (which are great).

Yes The City was amazing. The original A8bit version of course. I loved how immersive it was and there was often a great sense of danger, especially at night! Also loved the loot and potion system which sadly has never been done like that were you can taste it and the color/texture gives you a good idea what is it.

By '87 I was fully on board with the Amiga and was waiting for it to come to that but as we know that was canceled. Did get the Amiga version of The City which was nice but IIRC it did lack some of the depth of the A8 version. Great music on both platforms!

Nice to meet you here Drayth.

A few are extremely popular yes. They seem to think chasing after the latest fad is better but I think it may fail and that they may have made more off of devoting more resources to UT4.

Obviously the the thief was thievish. The equivalent of Dean with a shit ton card scams on Supernatural. This may set a precedent for other cases whether you or innocent or not.

"Good afternoon. I'm Officer Nice. May I see your driver's license, registration and credit cards please?" The officer immediately swipes card on his CC swipe machine on his belt.

"Excuse me this is your wife's card. Get out of the car right now."

"I see you bought a bag of fertilizer. Care to tell me what you are going to do today?"

"We contacted your wife and she says you got into an argument and we think you are a possible threat to society. DHS van is right over there. Step inside."

Sadly, Mr Fargo is one of the past heroes turned into shills and his game is strictly smoke and mirrors. Not to be trusted, especially with another remake on the horizon (Bard`s Tale).

Why is it their place to be involved in policy decisions in the first place? That's a blatant conflict of interest. Of course they want more power. They should not be involved in policy decisions.

They are not restrained because the rich and powerful fear the masses waking up. You're under the dangerous illusion as to how power actually works.

Thanks, I already know about that. You presume too much what I do and do not know, unless you can read my mind. Maybe you do have superpowers I don't know for sure.
