LEO law enforcement officer.
I don't know how many alerts we can get, here are a few.
Emergency Broadcast System, I think this was changed during 45's presidency to the Presidential Alert after so many made fun of him on TikTok.
Amber Alert, missing children
Silver Alert, missing adults
Weather Alerts
& Blue

The following is from the link which does a very good job of describing Texas Blue alerts ( a leo was injured)

"Emergency alerts can be toggled on and off in your cell phone settings."
Except for presidential.
,.,.,.,.,..,,.,
The alert in question was made a Texas wide alert.
Fifteen of the smallest US states could fit within Texas simultaneously including Kentucky, Virginia, Indiana, Maine, South Carolina, West Virginia, Maryland, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Hawaii, Connecticut, Delaware, and Rhode Island.
Texas borders Mexico.
I'm surprised Interpol wasn't involved and that you didn't get an alert in Germany.

The problem here being this ->
This site is currently unavailable to visitors from the European Economic Area while we work to ensure your data is protected in accordance with applicable EU laws.

But if you want alerts.. we got alerts. Got 3 extreme weather warnings for extreme storms with thunder/hail today, ran outside each time to secure my shit, and what happened? Oh yeah, nothing. Except brooding heat (38℃) yay

I've farted around with the pre-release stuff a bit and to be honest this feels way too much like a Baldur's Gate mod for D:OSII. I don't mind the change of pace but it has a lot of Larian jank to it and not in a good way. I don't know, I really wanted to love it but was pretty lukewarm overall, it just feels off. I will give the final game a chance when it's on sale.

Whatever dude, but in no way did this feel like a mod. not even close!


Exactly, as someone who modded D:OS 2 I wish we could have done even 5% of what BG3 is doing... and for a super alpha version of BG3 what they have in EA is flat out mind blowing. If we would get something akin to the NWN editor then BG3 would also literally NEVER die since we could implement all the hundreds of modules.....

I played BG3 EA once to completion (including seeing the ending video) and thought it was a great experience. I will play it again when it's done, whatever long that is.

Don't get your hopes up about creating modules like NWN. In most D&D games you could save your characters on your own PC and then join that character into hundreds of servers/worlds people created. BG3 is going to be like D:OS 2 where the characters are all stored on the host's PC, so after you play a session and disconnect you pretty much lose that character.

That wouldn't really be a problem if you could recreate entire modules in 1 module from start to end. But I admit that is maybe a pipe dream since Larian clearly has a lot to do still to even get it done.

A couple nights ago a Texas Blue alert woke me up. Hundreds of miles away a LEO had been shot. It didn't give enough information to identify the suspect or a link to get more information.
I quickly added it to the other alerts that I've disabled.

Haha! So did I! Of all the alerts, "Blue Alerts" are the ones I give the least fucks about.

Educate an European pleb.. what on earth is a LEO and a Blue Alert.. or is it really what we call "police notices" and you guys have that pushed to phones? Makes one wonder why.

really disappointing. Might be the first year I wait until the holiday edition sale or skip it altogether. Like ever. Only thing you can do is vote with your wallet in these situations. When I was younger I dealt with EAs constant fucking with this franchise and the PC version being MIA for years. I feel less inclined these days. Too long of a backlog to shed any tears about not having another game to play.



What I wonder is.. where was this sentiment the past 20 years? Because this ain't new as you say, nobody expects EA to not be the super-evil-scummy-hates-all-customers publisher that it is and always will be, only maybe topped by Koei Tecmo and 2K in terms of loathing for customers.

prices are falling, but not anywhere near where they should be (still 1.5 to 3x too high, especially for the TI versions)

And let's not even mention the 3070 TI , which is a full on vapor launch. ZERO stock.

I hope they lose and will have to pay a few billion $$$. They need to learn that either they believe in their ONE WORLD idea or they don't. Believing in it only if it does not harm your profit is ridiculous and actually a blow to the whole idea. I love it when rich people say "WE ARE ONE PEOPLE" only to instantly change this opinion when it comes to selling their products.
Valve is seriously hurting if they can't pay a $2 million fine (I guess it's to be expected when nobody buys games from them anymore and just uses them to download games that were purchased elsewhere.)
They would really really really be hurting if they had to pay billions in fines.

Well in this case the fine is the full profit for the duration (sales in the affected region) which are apparently only 2$ million in Czechia, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

But if you want to steam bleed just wait till the EU agencies act on the 2nd issue raised, that is geo-blocking Germans because of missing age verification it also violates EU rules that prohibit geographically based restrictions that undermine online shopping and cross-border sales.
You know, the last time this came up I thought your solution was so absurdly onerous and Germnay-centric that I went to see how international porn sites handle this. Well, they don't. When the UK and France made similar demands, the big porn sites' response also seems to have been to ignore them. And the German regulators' solution wasn't to fine Pornhub and Youporn and whatnot into submission, their answer was to have ISPs apply DNS blocks against porn sites that don't have satisfactory age verification. This seems to be exactly why Valve implemented their policy. But you think they're going to be sued for doing exactly what the government did? Is this just what you want to happen, or is there a legal precedent in your country?

As long as Steam stops wrongfully blocking Adults from Germany.... I am supporting all efforts to that end. The EU anti-trust investigation is always going to target Steam over something like this. The moment you block 1 nationality in the EU but not all you violated 1 market rule. Even if you technically HAVE to block them because you violate national law otherwise. I never said the laws make any sense ;p

But it needs a solution. And if not then EU fines will follow. And funny you bring up pornhub because pornhub EU is very different from pornhub US .. as in, VERY different.

Even as a Critical Role fan I only looked exactly ONCE at a liveshow with chat active and never looked back.. it's VOD's on youtube (with subtitles) for me or bust. Twitch chat is a toxic hellhole at BEST.. it can be way worse. (To clarify) The Critrole fanbase is not toxic at all, but even they can manage to turn a benign chat into toxic shit by brigading and otherwise being obnoxious in other ways.. it's actually mind-blowing that anyone even streams 4+ hours shows with chat on.

Twitch chat in this case is a toxic hellhole, in most everyday chats, it's reasonable to me and lot less people to manage and they'll axe you if you're an ass for long. It's the events that are harder to control, I keep it on but I can totally see why others want to just close it on the right.


Yeah it's quite a bit worse when you have immersive programming instead of just a show event. I still remember 5-6 years ago they actually included the chat IN THE VIDEO feed. As in, it's hard-baked in the youtube VOD's too. Talk about a facepalm moment, it also makes the first campaign of CritRole super annoying to watch, their bad audio back then included. It's actually pretty amazing how much they improved by becoming independent and actually investing some $$ but the chat for the livestream never improved. It's still as bad now as it was 6 years ago. Maybe worse now, but really not by much.

I legit don't understand why they the crit-role people, much as I adore them, stick to that horrible format on Twitch. Sure we get the VOD's, and there is a definite value-add to those with subtitles and time-stamping.. but why not just go completely VOD then? Are the subscription only streams on Twitch that profitable? (Legit wondering..)

I hate Souls type games. This one looks like a highly inferior wanna-bee copy cat, still free is free, maybe some day I will enjoy getting mauled over and over until I learn the exact key press sequences.

In this one your standard experience is simply always randomly falling to your death, since level geometry is super obtuse but still requires you to jump, and the inputs SUCK, always double inputs out of nowhere.. super annoying.. I tried it and already removed it again heh

The first game had me and then lost me right near the end where you fought, what can only be described as rat-pope in a church after murdering at least 500 people as a child with a metal rock sling that had more fire power than battle tank.

Which is to say. This game deserves a sequel with more funding and it seems like they got the funding

"FBI and Justice Department said they were able to use the Bitcoin public ledger to trace the payments back to "a specific address, for which the FBI has the 'private key,' or the rough equivalent of a password needed to access assets accessible from the specific Bitcoin address."

That's VERY interesting. If FBI had their private key, I have to assume they somehow hacked the hackers. Maybe this relates to the hackers claiming last week that their servers were compromised/seized? It was assumed they made that up as an excuse to lay low, but maybe it's for real.
I guarantee you it relates to that, whether that story is to save face or it really happened we'll never know.

The hackers are based in Russia. They overstepped even what their handlers thought was a good choice. The FBI is claiming that they've been watching Naughty Bear, or whatever the hell their name is, for a year and knew which wallet they had used in the past.
I tend to believe it was a nod and a wink from Putin who said "here's the key and this is where you'll find the stash. But it's on the condition that you promised not to mention my name."

Does this mean our infrastructure is safe. NO
Does this mean that if Russia wanted to stop these ransomware attacks they could. The answer is YES.


Exactly, this is a super good thing. Make it happen more. And I will happily repeat that no hacker group in Russia operates without Russian state allowing it to be so.
