LG 5K display must be kept at least 2 meters away from Wi-Fi routers.

LOL, so focused on the 5K part that they forgot about the EM shielding part.

Steve Jobs is rolling in his grave.

The best part is that a lot more things are WIFI routers, not just the actual routers, but also the cards you have in your laptop or pc, or the tablet you hold in your hand, and even your smart-phone, all are wifi routers. Heck, if it isn't shielded, then even thunderstorms and solar flares will cause infinite random disruptions.

Quality product for sure /s it was however made by LG, and maybe that tells you where not to buy anything, ever. ^^

The MSI thing is why I exclusively buy workstation class boards. I don't give a shit about gimmicky crap, I just want a solid, stable, reliable board.

You think this is a MSI only thing?

Thoughts on this weekend's travel bans and protests? Will it continue or get thrown out by the higher courts?

I find it far more hilarious people are surprised he is doing what he said he was gonna do. As if honesty in a presidential election is something rare and unfathomable (Well, for Clinton it would have been I guess)

As for legality, there will be exceptions to that ban, tons of them, but the general gist seems to be legally stable. It is surprising not to see Egypt and Saudi Arabia on that list though, you know, the actual terror states.

That in itself is not a bad thing, but what is really a bad thing is that it is now 4 years since the KS.... BG2 and Torment 1 took substantially less (OK, they had much bigger budgets too) Sounds to me like that during KS the entire project wasn't really fleshed out properly though...

Damn really? was hoping to check out this tales series game for its story and battle system. I mean I have a ps4 now but... maybe when the game goes cheap it will be fixed.

Yeah, companion AI is borked, you need just google "vjoy Berseria" to understand why (And how to fix it yourself, and it is a REAL mind-fuck that this even works)

That is the only problem though (that I found) and yeah, vjoy fix is required, game gets much harder later on, and you need that AI (it is, in fact, your primary AOE damage dealer)

Irresponsible reporting at its finest. Although if folks would stop using anti virus I would have to hire some more employees.

I assume you don't know much about how AV software has been preventing proper sandboxing of plugins and tabs in Firefox for nearly 3 years, how AV software is completely breaking TLS by MIT attacks on the certificates or how AV software is overriding cert checking and thus breaking one of the only pillars of safe internet communication.

Sandboxing is the only level of security a browser and plugin within needs. But AV has been breaking this system by pulling contents out of the sandbox into an ! ROOT ! level to scan it, completely unprotected I might add. This 1 problem alone is the reason nobody sane uses a sandbox with an AV, because if your AV scans sandbox, browser cache and plugin data contents from outside the sandbox, you just defeated your sandbox, entirely. And worse, you promoted your security software to being the single point of failure and primary attack vector. Since AV software operates on ROOT level, if it's pwned, so is your entire network.

Average user might not understand this, but if you work in security or IT you *should* know this. Sandboxing is security, AV is snake oil.

A tool to remove MALWARE might still be relevant even today, but nothing beats good backup practices and some sanity.

News Comments > Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Announced

I'd rather take likeable companions over a big city, but given Chris Avellone is no longer working on this (who is one of *the* best coherent world and situation/character writers) I don't see myself hyped for this one.

And worse, in PoE 1 I just felt no connection to any of the characters, half of em really had zero reason to even travel with me beyond their own quest solutions. I hope this crowdfunding succeeds anyway, because maybe at some point someone is gonna make BG3 and it will be standing up to that comparison. But in PoE I just had so many "ugh" moments indeed. The entire court thing, the 2nd city... which was absolutely no fun to explore. And some of the later battles seemed.. just.. weird

Much worse, lack of any real modding (in terms of new companions) means that the best thing of Infinity Engine games is not here (and that is new companions to me) Which can tremendously increase the enjoyment of a replay.

But replaying PoE 1, even with the DLC.. just.. not gonna happen

Just remember that what they ask here, is 20% of what they actually need to make PoE 2. (if you seen the PoE 1 making of then you know how close that was)

Aside that, Fig doesn't support any other payment option than CC

Eh... similar note, I went and opened my one free box for the event, and got 500 credits and a lunar Ana skin (purple), so that was worthwhile at least.

Haven't actually played the game in months, just log in for these free boxes haha.

Same here, something about it just.. does not create any urge to click "play" ;/

This is one of these things where Valve should really start to get a move on, because if they don't, criminal persecution and anti-money laundering divisions of national polices will.

Pfft, you haven't lived unless you beat pre-nerf Inferno.

I find the d3 now far superior to that, even though I have lived through that (and never beat ACT2+ inferno)

My DH had found 2 legendary items by then. None of which had even a roll for my class (yeah, that was a thing back then, not many still remember that) and I ran around with a blue socketed ilvl 61 weapon which was superior to every legendary and since you couldn't re-roll you sat on a brick made of gold coins with nothing to spend it on aside from the stupid auction house.

Not good memories thinking about it And yeah, Error 37

It is amazing that they are admitting it was a design problem along with the manufacturing problems. They handled every step of this as best they could it would seem to me. Other than the rushing of a new design with new manufacturing process so that it was not tested well enough. That part they really messed up. Everything after that, great!

Yeah but the really funny bit is that if you are German, you know what the TÜV Rheinland actually is and does, and this entire news becomes far more mind blowing then

It is however extremely interesting that this wasn't just 1 bad battery but a total and complete design and quality control fuck-up that spread not just over the case but also over 2 totally different battery fabs. One wonders what this says about the quality of Li-ion battery packs in general though.

I would have voted for Bane if he had run against Merkel..... that's how disillusioned I am of politics. I thought Trumps election speech was something straight out of a Game. And it's problematic no doubt when video game "speeches" resonate with me far more than real speeches. COD had a few of those, and the trailer they released with the general giving his speech imo could have been 1:1 Trumps election speech.

Weird time to be living in

Go and watch some old speeches by Helmut Schmidt. They prove that not all politicians produce only mindless drivel.

https://youtu.be/aMxJ0Kn1r6o

To all non-German speaking guys here, this is a speech by one of the most intelligent politicians EVER. Unfortunately it is in German, so you might want to skip it.

Unfortunately the party that the SPD now is would never produce a politician of this level, not after Schröder ruined that party. And my favorite politician speeches are still from Gysi... sadly he was in the wrong party. I mean just look at our next chancellors... Merkel or Gabriel, that's like pest or cholera. None of them can incite any emotions, none of them have the gravitas for giving speeches, speeches which would be absolutely vital in todays time to give the German population some guidance and vision for the future.

As I said, I would vote Bane over Merkel, I wouldn't even think twice if that were a choice during election. Sadly it is not. ^^ The only realistic other choice is the cash-bag Gabriel, a politician who lives and breaths for industry interests, and doesn't know what voters are unless he needs to be elected. Bah
Sahra Wagenknechts speeches are much better than anything Gysi ever said. Actually Gysi went even more bonkers than Merkel in the refugee crisis. But too bad the rest of her party doesnt support her much.

And even worse, next elections are gonna be a sad thing indeed. Don't need to be a sage to predict that mess is gonna be yet again SPD/CDU and 1 other party. Might be a good time to start paying to some chaos god. (Yes, paying, I am not religious, and I hear chaos gods take bribes and sacrifice ;P)

Holy Shit. I don't know what's harder to believe. Kellyanne "Alternative Facts" Conway in charge of the ministry of misinformation, or that some simpletons actually believe this crap.
It's mind boggling.

Who are you going to believe: the great and magnificent President Donald J. Trump, first of his name, King of the Andhals and the First Men, or so called "photographic evidence"?

In this day and age? Neither

The first part is understandable, but why would you disbelieve hundreds of photos taken by hundreds of different people, as well as eyewitness accounts? Do people really believe there is some kind of mass liberal conspiracy going on between thousands of news agencies and independent bloggers where they all have a morning meeting and get their facts, photos and stories aligned just to make Donald Trump look like a buffoon? Or is it more likely Donald Trump is just a buffoon?

Oh it is very likely he is a total Buffoon. My point is that it is completely irrelevant who we believe or don't. Trump will spread the greatest lie aka, "alternate facts" if that is what his voters expect the truth to be. It doesn't matter in any way what the real truth is. Anyone opposed to Trump will always assume anything Trump says is BS, even if it isn't, and while that may be most often the "truth", reality is we at this point can no longer know for sure.

And after that election I honestly will say I don't trust ANY us media in ANY way. To me, Trump and the US media are a match made in heaven. They can tear themselves apart while I sit in Germany and laugh at the insanity and irrelevancy of topics raised by both sides. There isn't a single piece of news currently on any top US news side that isn't put into a ideological context, anti-trump news will always leave anything out that might make Obama or Bush look worse than Trump. pro-trump news will always do the opposite even if it means flat out lying.

Photo evidence might show what is truth, but interpretation by viewers/readers will always be according to their ideology. So there isn't even any "true" truth, it will always depends on which way you swing...

The speech writers never get any credit.

Delivery is what counts, not content. Although I guess I am complaining that we lack *BOTH*
A good orator the orange orangutan is not. I'm p0sitive the only thing he's good at is talking shit, and that's not what a country needs. A playground bully with a loud mouth and scared fools for followers.

Well I could handle the shit, if he delivered it with gravitas. But as it is... it seems this skill went somehow MIA globally.
