Was that short link really part of the official press announcement? uBlock origin blocks it... "click.tradedoubler, referral hijacker"

Oh well ;p

Dammit, if you can't trust CCleaner, who can you trust?

CCleaner is made by Piriform Ltd, a company you could never trust, and even less so since they got bought by Avast.

So yeah.
But we happily install patches on our windoze machines every month to patch zero day vulnerabilities and if we are lucky they don't glitch are system.

True enough

Having played KSP since its KS alpha days, I can totally empathize with the folks over at Space X. Even simulation rocket science is fucking hard. Sure, you could cheap out and just do a separation collar and float the CM down but everyone does that. To land vertically, at the destination of your choice, without cratering is a reward like no other.

I still can barely believe they managed to land first stages on drone ships to be honest. That just seems like sone of those KSP challenges nobody wants to ever do twice without mechjeb

Wait, you mean like i called it in the first post.

“the account in question was issued an individual refund of $330, not the $45,000 claimed”

Derek Smart is trying to spin this like a coked up Breitbart intern caught buggering Steve Bannon on live TV. sad

For all we know it could still be true (who knows which side says the truth nowadays), but yeah...

have to admit reading your first post would have saved me 10 minutes of googling

Hasn't SQ42 now shifted from a space flight sim like wing commander, to some sort of pseudo-fps with some ship-to-ship combat?

How would we know even if it did.. there has been no news about it for 2 years... ;/ Least not far as I noticed them...

So turns out the refund story was fakenews

Samsung unveils new electric car batteries for up to 600 km (430 miles) of range.

That's pretty sweet. I love that the future is coming soon. I just hope those batteries are safer than the ones in the Note 7.

I wonder if they fixed the charging time issue in these, aside from the explody issue

Won't happen anyway, since these US companies might wanna sell their cars not just in the USA And so the cars would always be regulated, by the EU, by Canada etc.

Possible, but I'd never underestimate the companies capacity to cut corners everywhere they can to siphon even mere nickles and dimes. Intrinsic obsolescence as well as programmed obsolescence proved this without the shadow of a doubt.

All they need to do is have the assembly line "skip" a few steps here and there for the cars shipped to Canada VS those shipped to the US, or Europe VS America, which they already do since the regulations are far more stringent in EU VS CA/US right now and there ARE differences in the same models found in EU VS those in CA/US.

Heck since they'll be self-driving cars they can even remove a few lines of codes and/or disable a few features and voilà! Much more dangerous cars on US roads all to save a few nickles and dimes here and there on the cars.

Well, before the diesel scandal I would have laughed at that idea, but I can't deny that it's possible they actually do that. But will they really do it and suffer the other car makers from rubbing salt in that wound always and everywhere?

Toxic behavior in an online FPS? Now there's a first.
At least the "reporting" function works and they do take action.

True, but what does that help when the community as a whole is toxic AF.... and if you report someone in a squad of 3.. you have good chances to be counter reported +.+
Action is only taken after reports are verified. I don't understand your point.

My point is if a squad of 3 reports you, it's gonna be checked and verified (even if nothing happens), but if only 1 person out of 5 reports 3 in a squad, nothing is ever checked (well, at least I never got feedback so I am assuming nothing happened)

The situation was what I described, a squad of 3 randomly assigned to my squad of 2 to fill a game, they reported my buddy and me after much shit-flinging in chat (he was tank, I was healer) because in the team fights I tried to keep the tank alive by healing and the other 3 always ran in front of the tank and got constantly killed...

I am gonna assume that my report of them would have done nothing. Well, their reports of me + buddy did nothing, but as I said, this report system does nothing to fix the general problem of this game in pub matches. Namely, it's toxic AF fast and if you backtalk you can forget your report ever doing anything.

I think he's implying that if you're a white guy you really don't have the same perspective on someone throwing around racist insults.

You don't need to have the same perspective, an argument is always based on 2 perspectives.... anyhow, I just thought his post really tone-deaf. You don't bring gender and skin color into an argument, unless you wanna look really iffy on your moral pedestal

You're a white guy, correct?

Are you implying what I think you are implying? I thought you were against racism and sexism.... must have misremembered that.

In fact, you think it's ok to invalidate someones opinion because he isn't a skin color or gender you approve? Or was that a "heat of the moment" kind of thing?

Don't regulate self-driving cars.

Yeah, let's just not even worry. Who cares if a bad line of code slams a self-driving car into a bus and kills 30 people? It's not going to bother Trump, he's safe in the White House Mar-A-Lago.


Kidding about Trump aside, the thought of 100000 test cars driving around with no regulation to prohibit anything is fucking terrifying.

Won't happen anyway, since these US companies might wanna sell their cars not just in the USA And so the cars would always be regulated, by the EU, by Canada etc.

Wow that is one hell of a depressing and eye opening podcast

But this here is far less https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhn6yrNzM3M depressing, seems a grey area, if this goes before a court that would be extremely interesting....

The combat system actually grew on me a bit surprisingly.

The key, as posted earlier, is in understanding how range choices interact and picking choices that suit your fleet setup.

They have made changes to combat that favor mixed fleets and tactics more and more. Additional changes are coming soon to better balance defenses. Beams, for instance, now fire at medium range with a penalty to rate of fire.

The biggest issue is that their tutorials are not the greatest on that topic and you have to read the GDDs on the forum to understand some of the more intricate parts of it. It's not my favorite combat system in the world but it is a million times better than the no-choice Gal Civ III crap.

I don't watch every battle but I definitely don't skip every one either. You can choose different camera options and you can use the AR view in combat to get hard numbers and view ship paths.

Well yeah, if you measure it against GC3 Endless Space 2 is a masterpiece But I am not a fan of the missile focus.... we'll see if they fixed it in 1.48 or what it is now... they added a TON of new bugs though.
