Well of course they couldn't beat lefist feminist agenda show, The Handmaid's Tale. God forbid a show ever win on its own merits instead of current politics. This is why all these awards shows are utterly useless.

Agree with you partially, but here's my problem with this. CRI makes it sound like they are doing a "J.G. Wentworth" (an infamous US structured settlement firm) and simply getting an advance payment (lump-sum) that they are guaranteed later. OK. But why would they need IP as collateral? If they have cash on hand, that can serve as a guarantee. Normally, the imputed payment that they are getting an advance on is considered the only collateral necessary.
One of two things is the case here. Either CRI doesn't have enough cash that the bank is comfortable in giving them a signature loan, or the bank is unsure the government will follow through on its promise. This is a logical concern. Until the government actually allocates the money, they can decide at any time not to fund any program. So the bank must have a little concern that the UK may not fund the development tax credits...
My approach to revision hasn’t changed much over the years. I know there are writers who do it as they go along, but my method of attack has always been to plunge in and go as fast as I can, keeping the edge of my narrative blade as sharp as possible by constant use, and trying to outrun the novelist’s most insidious enemy, which is doubt. Looking back prompts too many questions: How believable are my characters? How interesting is my story? How good is this, really? Will anyone care? Do I care myself?

What competition? Obviously any ISP has to make a profit so it doesn't matter how low they go when the muni should be running it as a not for profit to begin with. It's like car insurance. If it's required than the government should be providing it as a not for profit as well.

Sorry, what's the fucking point in having citizens set up the infrastructure and then having a bunch of bloodsucking ISPs come in and set up shop on top of it?
What about Ammon's costs? The city government broke even within three years and is now operating in the black, Kirkham said. The city has no debt related to the fiber construction.

Indeed. Just donate a few bucks to the guys at Adblock instead. I think Google has more than enough money.

Why would an early purchaser need to pre-order? What did I purchase if not the game?

Wait. So what were they building with a million.
And what would you do with weapons and not battles.
Did they mean like, PvP but the game would have PvE?
I know you probably can't answer this because I get it. They didn't answer this. It's so weird. It's like someone building a space sim that was just a hanger to walk around in and put towels in your cockpit, without there being an actual game around it unless people donated more.
I honestly don't understand all the hate this project is getting.

But since this will stream to anything with SteamOS installed, my main concern is alleviated anyway.

That's fascinating. I know there was a failed cloud-based gaming service that rendered your 3D and piped video to you. This seems like a local version where you run the video card server.
I can see consumer-level configurations of a tower with multiple 3D cards in it serving a whole family, even if one card could handle more than one game at once.

Right, this is the weak link in the chain. This makes the most sense for laptops, yet most laptops run low bandwidth wireless connectivity. So people would have to run an ethernet cable, and that kind of ruins the point of it. If you're streaming to your TV, you'll have to run ethernet to it, so you may as well run an HDMI cable.

Can a single gaming rig stream more than one game to multiple devices at a time?

what they should do, is deliver it with a decent high rez display.... and take a bit of a loss much like Sony did with the PS 3. Better this, than shipping a less than decent display. Sony took the loss, but not they are everywhere.
