Call your Senator. Tell him you're a constituent, you vote every election, and you oppose the bill. This is the best way to influence a Congress person.

I would but I'm a liberal "cuck" with two liberal female Senators so it's unnecessary. They also allow the devil's weed in my state. It's terrible I tell you, terrible!!

Can we start a KS to get these idiotic trolls around here to fucking kill themselves already? They are just an absolute waste of space and resources. They are just garbage, and that's an insult to garbage.

Honestly Blue how much longer do we have to tolerate Cutter's violent outbursts?

What are you, seven years old? "Teacher, teacher! Cutter was being mean to me again! BUUUHUUU!!"

Cutter is always whining about the "trolls" and how Blue needs to ban them. The thing is, the "trolls" he is talking about are everyone here except him. Of course lately he's escalated to calls for violence.

Blue has banned previous users who only seemed to have bile to spew, why not Cutter?

Game over man.

These incompetent cunts had years to come up with something better than Obamacare and instead they expect people to swallow this rush job which is just a shittier version of Obamacare.

When there's something wrong in your neighborhood, WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU GONNA CALL!? Have some fucking respect.

Not going to call anyone. I'm going to grab my gun and shoot the fucker because even if the cops show up in 5 minutes which is very fast and optimistic, it may very well be too late. I'll call them to come pick up the body.

Even cops will tell you that relying entirely on them for protection is stupid.

Yes, because as the War on Drugs has shown, incarcerating a million people has completely removed drugs from society.
Very good analogy. Addiction, whether it is love of money or drugs is seldom cured by incarceration.
They both tickle parts of the brain that threats of prison will never reach.

White collar crime is somewhat more deterred by prison because you've generally got smart people comparing risk to reward. If the punishment were severe enough, it might not be worth the potential paycheck. That's not always the case, but it's certainly more true than with drugs.

With drugs you're dealing with people who are sick with addiction and are not making rational decisions to begin with, so no amount of changing the calculus of risk v. reward will have fuck all to do with deterrence. A similar case is true for murder and capital punishment. It's often a crime of passion or a crime of intoxication, so there is no deterrent improvement. It's entirely retributive.

But I think imprisoning these types of scammers is counter-productive. They just sap more money from the public while they rot in prison. They need to be put to work making financial restitution.

If it made 50k it already made 20k more than 50% of *ALL* indy titles...

Put's that "gigantic failure" into perspective, especially considering it's a VR game. As long as the VR goggles cost more than the GPU's needed to run them this will remain a stagnant market.

It's not strictly a VR game. It only got a beta version of VR support a few days ago... So during the sales period in question you couldn't even use VR with this game.

Nintendo almost always under-stocks their new hardware. It's unlikely that they would continuously make the same mistake over and over unless there was some intention behind it.

I admire them for trying something different even if it didn't work out.

Introversion's games have all been pretty different IIRC. They definitely aren't one to pump out a lot of sequels or formulaic titles.

Though I'd love a sequel to Uplink.

FYI, this bug was widely known. I checked my motherboard which is a middle-of-the-road Z170 and it had it fixed with a BIOS update in February of last year.

Looks like my Z170 motherboard put a fix in for this a long time ago as well.

Fair point, yet FF3 (6) and Secret of Mana (Seiken Densetsu 2).

It's a pretty solid lineup on that thing. The Chrono Trigger gambit, curious.

Star Fox 2...that's a thing 20 years later apparently

SNES had way better games than the NES on the whole so the lineup is much more impressive. Earthbound is another supremely good game. Maybe they just didn't want to stick another Square game on there?

Wow that was a big bomb. I mean, it's a short walking simulator but it's well reviewed and visually different. It was never going to pull Prison Architect numbers, but only $50,000 in revenue for 9 months of the team's time? Wew.

I assume their fan base is just really into gameplay rather than a short visual experience.

While they're at it, why don't they just say it's okay to drive intoxicated in some cases too. Hey, why stop there? Maybe even rape should be okay in some cases, huh? Colorado; may as well be called "West California".

Well this is a nuanced and balanced view of things to be sure...

yeah Microsoft great idea!

So when the ransomware folks get their grubby mits on this new remote access brick ability.....

not to mention all the Orwellian crap that could be done with this.

Why would ransomware people want to trigger bricking your laptop? They wouldn't be able to fix it, and you wouldn't even know they did it. You'd just call up whoever is in charge of resetting it and have them reset it...

Um are you serious?

ransomware goes out saying pay 300$ or we will brick your laptop in 24 hours...a few laptops get bricked.. lots of people start paying 300 bucks or more.. some will pay thousands.


Why would I pay them money when I can just call up and get my thing unlocked? They'll be able to see that I have not issued a disable command and that the device was disabled incorrectly, and turn it back on.

Their official statement is out. I don't know enough about how the UK does things to pass any judgement on it, but people might want to read it.

The TL;DR is they claim they are simply getting an advance on a tax rebate they are owed by the UK government, and by doing so they can avoid losing money in a conversion from USD and EUR.
