Well, if its the secret to the Maxwell VS Kepler power savings, AMD now knows about it and can implement it in Navi or later architectures, or perhaps they already knew and have it in Vega. We'll see.

First successful parachute jump--without a chute--from 25k.

So, I hate to be that guy, but how many unsuccessful ones were there?

It's not a parachute jump if it's without a chute.



HA! Most gloriously petty victory ever! Headbang Laugh

(and I was quoting someone else too!)

soooo... first guy to successfully execute a... jump? not clickbaity enough man.

Technically it would just be "dude falls into safety net from higher than usual" ;p

I can already see the Steam Reviews for NMS:

Not Recommended (thumbs down)
Posted: September 26
This game ended up being surprisingly stale. And there's no end game.

549.0 hrs on record

I wonder if this is the reason why so many want NMS to fail.

+ Indie title that suspiciously sounds like other ambitious (and failed/shallow) procedurally generated games such as Spore, Godus, etc.
+ Very little demonstration of the gameplay for the first 2 years of hype; no commentary about the end game until recently.
+ Excessive fawning by the gaming media 'elite' (e.g. usual supsects Kotaku, Polygon, Destroid, etc)
+ Priced as an AAA game for an unknown/untested studio
+ No mods

Does that sound right?

Do we actually know that there won't be mods? If it can be made to run totally offline then there will be mods. Aside that, 60, indy dev with no titles to their name, and too much hype.. never a good sign.

That said, I put 150 hours into MGS5:PP.. so I dig sandboxes where you can just troll around. Thing is though, I haven't really seen anything like that in the previews of NMS, maybe they just kept it secret.

Apparently they should use the Starcraft universe, see story in today's news.

But that is using the Starcraft 2 engine and thus Blizzard retains full control.

Just tried WSUS Offline on my broken win7 install. Some updates failed but it did install 50+ successfully. Now windows update doesn't crash while searching for new updates. Guess FOSS is better than all of Microsoft's repair tools.

Yeah it's not the logical connection to think that WSUS Offline would help in this regard but at least for me this tool is one of the few essentials I have always on my backup drive. When WU refuses to update, WSUS offline does.. always. Though sometimes It actually requires that you cut the internet connection so WU doesn't get stuck in an automated search loop or crashes randomly during these update installs.

Anyway, glad it worked for you... I have had a TON of WU issues so yeah. Always fun, isn't it?

This can't be done with the chip cards.

Chiped cards can be cloned already, and there's enough problems that MiTM attacks can do everything needed to get all the data. The only thing that they might lack is the card's pin and expiry date. And in some of those cases you don't even need the pin, the exp date is enough.

From a security standpoint of old magstripe vs emv cards. EMV is the better choice since the barrier of entry for skimmers to get into this is much higher. On the other side, another 5 years you're likely going to see them looking at another countermeasure system. That's not even touching that the old magstrip skimmers still work on those new cards because they still encode everything on there as a fallback if the emv system fails.

The real problem with the US implementation vs everywhere else is they dumped pin's and went to digital signatures. Why? Who the fuck knows.

Don't forget that the technology is already decades old in Europe, we already had chip skimmers/cloners and MitM attacks for chipped cards. Though the pin has to be captured via camera or fake keypad otherwise the card clone is totally useless.

Not seeing any future technology coming in this aspect of payment here... and here we can even withdraw money within a store.. so you pay 200 for a 16 purchase and you get paid out 184 in cash ;p Saves you walking to an atm... and the store devices are usually skimmer free, as employees are usually monthly trained to detect all kind of new skimmers. While ATM's are never properly controlled thanks to banks putting them outside of the secured areas of their buildings (although that is stopping now)

Last I heard, some guy was claiming it was going to "revolutionize gaming" and change it forever. Haha. Seriously. It looks so boring. It's the same minecrafty grindy stuff every other game has been putting in. So there aren't any invisible walls.. does that really mean everything out there will be worth exploring?

Maybe it will be moddable.. that would be the defining thing for this... but seeing as it has some nonsensensical forced online component I doubt it.

My wife's Windows 7 laptop will not update. Im gonna try these fixes, thanks guys.

Good luck. I'm 50-50 with fixing broken windows 7 update. Often only a reinstall fixes it.

Never had a problem with Win7 until the push to Win10 started. The April 2016 spyware update crashed one computers win-update, and I've been having problems with win-update on vista-10 installs ever since.

If you have broken WU, you need to get WSUS Offline (google that) and let it download all needed patches and apply them... It takes a while, but once done you have an offline storage of all updates. Great thing to put on a backup USB drive and have it attached when you reinstall Windows so you can update literally offline.

It's not friends who are the problem, it's the people who don't realise that you're a human being with feelings and stuff.


But that isn't ageism of the internet.. that's assholes in real life being assholes on the internet. They are the VAST minority but a very loud one on Twitch/Youtube. Which is why comments on youtube should be disabled, and on twitch community moderators should ban everyone that goes too far. Because nobody should accept abuse, people responsible should be banned and problem solved.

What you have to realize is this.. she basically says that (some) people are assholes on the internet. To us, that's typical old-person-just-discovered-the-internet-isn't-always-nice stuff. I mean that in the sense of "water is wet" or "fire is hot"

And really, if we were in her shoes, would we even talk to Huffington Post about something like that? (No, we wouldn't.. as we know what the Streisand Effect is...).... Or would we DO something about it ourselves, hire community people that enjoy keeping the channel clean, disable comments on youtube and so on.

Well, and we have argumentative practice being on Bluesnews and all ;p I personally welcome any older person that enjoys gaming. This.. indeed *my* hobby can only improve with more diversity in age and gender. And hey, my old WoW clan leader was in his late 50ies.. so whatever. Nobody in the clan cared much, instead we had much more respect, and he seemed happy to found a group that, basically, didn't care about anything personal related to him.

So anyway.. I think old people should enjoy gaming, and if they are on youtube/twitch, employ basic common sense... and heavy moderation. Not because of their age or gender, but because that is COMMON SENSE ;p

Actually she makes a great case.. because she seems to think youtube is the internet ;p

When in reality, nobody in a game cares how old you are, unless you are younger than 13 and playing BF4.......

Yeah, Windows updates slowdown issue, stuck at 0% or 99%.. well known problems.. had to use WSUSOFFLINE to fix this half a dozen times... I don't think it is intentional by MS, just extremely shitty coding of windows update.

2 potential issues:

1. Everyone makes a fighting dong game.

2. People use copyrighted IP to make characters.

Thats the idea though..

This is the Tekken version of MUGEN. The whole idea behind these fighting game creators is to import copyrighted IP and have them fight eachother. This game will have every 3d fighting game character out there imported to it, as well as 3d models from other games and 2d->3d conversions.

Check out saltybet.com to see how MUGEN culminated. It really is quite the spectacle.. and this is looking to do the same thing, except with a base engine that is most like Tekken instead of traditional 2d sprite-based fighters.

That is strangely addictive to watch...
