As someone who has bad reactions to bee stings, here's a little tip I've come up with over the years. When I need to rid myself of a bee in the house, I seal the doors with a towel and crank the AC as low as it will go without freezing up. They seem to get more lethargic the colder it gets.

I'll grant you it's not exactly environmentally friendly, but it beats anaphylactic shock by a long ways.

Personally, whenever anyone asks "can you hear me?", I always answer no. If it's a reasonably intelligent human being, they're smart enough to figure it out. If they're an idiot, they get confused and hang up, thus saving me from having to talk to an idiot. If they're a Star trek computer, the paradox causes them to explode in a satisfying shower of sparks.

Individual numbers can be blocked, as can most alerts. However, preidential alerts are specifically exempt and cannot be blocked.

From the FCC, here: https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/wireless-emergency-alerts-wea

Why can't consumers block WEAs issued by the President?

In passing the WARN Act, Congress allowed participating carriers to offer subscribers the capability to block all WEAs except those issued by the President.

I look forward to something like this every few hours.

Pokémon Go player is mugged live on his Twitch stream.

So is that a gopro on the mugger's head or is he an old-timey doctor? "

That seems a pretty accurate assessment of the situation. Mordheim is good if you're a tabletop fan, or just like turn based strategy. Vermintide is Left 4 Dead, Medieval Rat-Fighter edition. Other than that they seem determined to crank out crappy tablet cash grabs.

There's only one, really important Fallout 4 question. Is "Butcher Pete" on the soundtrack this time?

'Video temporarily inconvenienced the radio star and also there was satellite radio, whatever happened with that anyway' is much harder to rhyme.

I actually enjoyed that one, until I hit the crash bug that stopped me from progressing. Totally different game than the first one though. If they would do a 3D accelerated version, I'd buy it.

Thanks, I do. I've still got an image of the disk I play through dosbox every now and then. Back when SSI was good (and still existed).

I'm holding out hope for something slightly more modern though.

We can hope. I'm as much a Battletech fan as the next guy but I've always wanted a PC version of the old FASA Crimson Skies. Or maybe even Renegade Legion.

Don't know what "10 quid" translates to in yankee dollars but I know I got mine though the Humble Bundle. Definitely got my money worth but I do feel bad for all the Kickstarter people and those who paid regular asking price. I didn't realize they were asking $25. Definitely not worth that.

It was looking pretty good till the last patch when everything went to hell. I guess they ran out of time.

At this point, the main debate seems to be whether the developer is actually dishonest or so mentally defective that he only appears to be dishonest.

Hopefully, he's really sincere about switching engines and holed up somewhere working on it. Seemed like a neat idea.

Don't forget the Stomping Land. Looks like that turned into a grab and run as well.

Official forums. Asked my question and got blasted with such helpful replies as "OMG u need new compy bro" and "reed teh faq noobe!".

All in all, an awesome experience.

I did submit a bug report and a DXDIAG so maybe it will do some good.

I haven't been able to run it since the May update. Before that the framerate was bad but I could work around that. Now, nothing.

Looked like it was going great back when I could run it though. I keep trying but haven't found a solution yet.

There's no official solution that's worked yet and asking in the forums is a nightmare. The Carmageddon community is not exactly a friendly, supportive environment.

Guess that means they could be run by lizardmen, too.

I will take that bet all day long.
