With or without retarded AI which makes them more of a liability than a benefit?

With retarded AI of course. You can bet that the first robot you find will go berserk and then rush into a mirelurk queen banging it's head off of it instead of firing lasers or rockets.

Or trains breaking down because it's too hot, too stormy, too wet, or because it *gasp* snowed, in winter. (Also modern trains you can't open the windows, hence why broken AC can make these things a deathtrap)


Ah, I see you've been to Toronto during the many, many, many outages of both LRT, GoTrains and bus service.

They stopped building transit 70 years ago here. And all they've been doing since is talking about it. It's in the news all the time. All the time. And yet that's as far as it ever goes. Comic Book Guy gave it the 'Worst Transit System Ever' award.

Not really true, they've been expanding it for years though the last new subway station opened in 2002, and the last expansion of the 401 widened it significantly. Toronto believes LRT is the solution, it's not. Not forgetting that Toronto's population has effectively doubled in the last ~20-25 years, and neither roads or anything else has kept pace with it. Or that the city elects idiots that believes tearing down arterial highways is a way to fix transit problems. Or believes that removing roadways to stick in bikelanes will help traffic problems.

Well these drivers fix the full screen flicker in OGL from the last beta release. Haven't run across any other problems either.

I actually don't know what this article is about (didn't feel like reading it) or what Gawker is.. (Don't care to look it up either)

The article is about a trial, and them publishing sex tapes even in defiance of judicial orders. In this case(of a question during the trial), they're fine with publishing child porn. Gawker, it's the central hub of what's wrong with media in general. They don't publish things because it's important, they publish things that think will generate them hits...and while doing it, if they lie that's okay too.

Wasn't he the editor at Gawker during the time the tape was released?
He still is the editor.

My question is how the fuck did this even get to WHQL. Seems that there's some rather serious problems if it made it this far with this many bugs.

Yeah, that is an article written by someone who doesn't like to think for themself and tinker.

ARS is owned by advanced publications(aka conde nast). They're happy corporate shills, and will goto town to defend their buddies at the drop of the hat. This is just another example.

Bell is def the worst for price gouging, but honestly, I've had service from many different ISPs, and Bell is consistently the most reliable. Never going back to coax cable again.

All the 3rd party ISPs renting from the big companies are often shit, through no fault of their own. Once with teksavvy I was without internet for 3 weeks straight, from Dec 15th to Jan 7th. Conveniently over the most crucial time of year for communication to work properly. Rogers had decided that they wanted to re-lease a bunch of existing Teksavvy customer's ISPs to "expand and improve their network". Yeah, right over xmas, wasn't that a bitch.

Welcome to internet in canada.

Let me guess, you live in one of our big cities. I've been with Tek for ~5 years now and have had two outages. Both were rogers fault, one they failed to reprovision TPIA modems, the other was a localized outage. The worst was 3 days because they failed to reprovision my modem. But bell being the best? I guess that depends, in my area there is no FFTH or FFTN, everything is copper still. Most of that copper is from 1910 or earlier. People have problems hitting even non-synced 4/512k service.

My sister on the other hand has it through tek on telus lines. When she was with telus, a week didn't go by when there was a "outside the last mile" failure of some kind with routing. 3 years now on tek and no outages. Anyway, if you do any type of online gaming a TPIA is the best choice. Tek, vmedia or ebox will fix routing in 30 minutes or less if latency is a serious problem. Any other ISP, especially the big ISPs? You'll be waiting months, gaming isn't a priority.

I like when people immediately think PG = family movie or something...

Look it up, the original Poltergeist is rated PG, that's a pretty good movie to take the kiddos to see, right?

Sure is. I watched it as a kid, and loved every minute of it.

I haven't had cable since 2002, and don't miss it a single bit. Every time I've watched TV when I was on the road it was jam packed with reality TV garbage. The channels I used to enjoy like discovery, history, Scifi/space and TLC are full of garbage or sitcoms. And these idiots wonder why people are dissatisfied. Hell my mother is a avid TV/movie person, and she rarely watches anything now. It's all netflix.

Dana being forceably possessed by a demon and turning into a fuck bunny? What age would you say is appropriate to see that? I would think, if it was released today, that would qualify as PG13.

When you say "family film" I'm thinking pixar. Maybe our definitions are crossed there.





Well my parents considered it a family film. Then again I was watching slasher flicks when I was 5 or so. Musta been that whole "can tell fiction and non-fiction apart" stuff along with my parents not worried that "sex is bad" crap. The movie when it was released in 1984 was given a suggested rating of PG13.

Anyway, seems like the radfems and SJW's are going off that the new movie is "racist" or some BS. AOS did a video up on that.

That was terrible. The entire thing should be nuked from orbit, and then the remains should be fired into the sun...just to make sure.

Yup. I have a feeling that this will be a mediocre game, maybe they can prove me wrong on that but we'll see.

I could send one to AMD though but they'll probably give me some binned response about how Afterburner is the problem even though it was the solution.

You probably should, make it clear that afterburner was the solution to your problem not the problem. And rather driver profiles weren't properly being engaged by the drivers.

With or without actual fan fixes?


That was fixed in the 15.11.1 just a FYI. If it's still happening to your card you should have filed a bug report. You did file a bug report right?

FE: Fates, best launch evar! Except until people realize it's censored..sorry..."localized" has content removed and then people are returning it in droves. The two walmarts and EB Games near me are seeing a 50% return rate on the game.

Not gonna lie, that sounds pretty sweet. On the flipside, not being able to save anywhere in a Bethesda game, that can crash at any time... Gonna take some getting used to...

Likely you'll still be able to use the console to save, and you can bet that within the first day or so someone will write a F4SE mod that will auto-save every 15 minutes into a group of 10 slots.
