I still only pay $7.99 a month for Netflix, and we use it a lot around here... I would gladly pay $19.99 if that enabled them to license more and better content, without having to play that shuffle game where they alternate which high-profile content they have available at any one time. They're doing pretty well with their original stuff, but that's not why I subscribe.

As for the topic of the article, you can't just look at it in plain numbers. A huge amount of the titles on there are independent and straight-to-DVD crap, which they probably get a couple hundred of for the same price as a popular TV show or blockbuster film from the past 10 years. If nobody's watching them and they get pulled by the dozens, nobody cares, and it's no reason to panic.

Ehem

Leaving Netflix in April - (selection by me)
101 Dalmatians (1996)
2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
Star Trek: Insurrection (1998)
Starship Troopers (1997)
Lord of War (2005)

the job of a library is not to reduce it's contents, in fact this is EXACTLY the reason I do not use netflix. I want to have movies in my Kodi library unchanging and forever.

I think people are making way more of this then they should be. All NPM needs to do is let devs remove their packages from search, but keep archive versions to address these dependency issues. If you are doing open source work and are publishing it in one of these package management repos, then you should do so with the understanding that you have a responsibility to the community to not fuck them over. The offending package was a 17 line "right justify" lib.

If he wanted to fuck the community over he could have written a "wipe all files" script in that dependency. Removing it seems rather tame.

So they release a broken game on the Japanese market? That takes some balls considering the abysmal PC/Console sales there.

If sticking to Japanese dietary guidelines only decreases your risk of death by 15% then that's a pretty shitty set of guidelines.

That's terrible results, especially when compared to their traditional Okinawan diets.


A whole-foods diet like the ones suggested by Dr. Michael Greger, Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Cadwell Esselstyn, or Dr. Dean Ornish is way ahead in terms of mortality, heart disease, brain disease, cancers and basically all of the big killers.




Eating stuff you don't like eating is pretty much guaranteed to kill you faster though

Ssds still aren't a necessity, if you can't afford you can still pc game. DAI I recd about Twice the load speed performance between the two which I still good. The 70 seconds sound like a first stArtup. Lots of other smaller games do not really need it either.

By the way I hate typing on an iPhone.

Obviously both depends on your amount of patience

On D3 you basically have several loading stutters for every new area with a HDD.. very annoying.

That is... not normal.... might want to check the rest of your system out. It actually sounds like you have a 5400RPM drive and not a 7200... you certainly shouldn't be having speed issues like that (or the folder thing) because of defragging.

If you aren't, you should be using MyDefrag (with the Jaspion scripts)... or probably not manually defragging at all in Windows 7+. The built in windows 7 (and newer) defrag is greatly improved over past versions and there is almost no reason for a third party defragger anymore unless you are really trying to eek single digit frames out of your system. O&O and a host of the other "popular" 3rd-party defraggers are doing much more damage than they actually solve lately.

Yeh it's a 5400RPM drive... wanted something that was not just not hot, but also not incredibly noisy. To be frank this is why I went for 512GB SSD to begin with, I specifically planned to put games that need it on the SSD.

Running MyDefrag shows me 40% fragmentation so I think we can safely assume w7 defrag can't handle this the joke is the lower area in the fragmentation display is completely continuous, I assume these are the oldest files, but whenever I downloaded a game from steam, it basically added a huge block of fragmentation on top, so there are huge gaps between continuous files that are not filled ;/

Gonna run MyDefrag at some point, though the site this thing is hosted at seems to be down

If you leave the SSD and pick something worse than a 980TI you will direly regret it. The 3.5GB of the 970GTX are a huge hindrance for the 2nd generation VR, only reason they pick that is because most people have a 970 already... from a pure upgrade perspective, even the current generation from nvidia is not a good choice, you wanna wait till Nvidia splurges out it's VR ready GPU designs. Which will likely include some hardware based features that give it an advantage.

And no SSD... once you go SSD, you never go back. If anything I'd say 250GB is way too frigging little for a gaming rig. I have 512GB ssd and even that is barely enough. And I only have few games on it (BF3/BF4/Diablo3/Anno2205/World of Warships/ETS 2 and XCOM 2)

Basically, those games where a decent SSD is mandatory. A slow HDD can make Diablo 3 entirely unplayable for example.

So don't be skimpy on upgrading your PC, because if you are you gonna be upgrading again and again. VR gen 2 is a moving target currently, so upgrade decisions should always keep that in mind.

SSD's are great but they aren't necessities. I have two systems with and 2 without, games play fine on them all. Loads are faster on the SSD, surprise. I never played Diablo 3 but if it requires a SSD then it sucks on another level to now. Is it because of long loads?

If one was building a pc just for VR and was budget minded, wouldn't the smart money be on waiting for the next gen video cards?

Yes.. well imo waiting for next gen video cards IS the smart move.

Btw the situation with these games is not load times (although for BF3/BF4 ssd is mandatory unless you like waiting forever, but loading stutters. On D3 you basically have several loading stutters for every new area with a HDD.. very annoying. Same for WoS and Anno2205, in Anno specifically new buildings are "loaded in" as they appear which can sometimes take a good 3 seconds during which you just see an empty area instead of a building...

A good non fragmented HDD can still handle it though, but in my case I have a 4TB barracuda and fragmentation is a HUGE issue there. We are talking large directory structures taking a good 5 seconds to load in fragmented state, vs instant load in non fragmented state.

Yep and it is spreading this block all........ fuckers

Just like win10 force it onto the people...they are dumm and will go our way in the end

At its core, cultural appropriation is treating cultures like a pick-and-mix grab bag of ideas for the dominant majority culture (almost always white)

That's that article in a nutshell. White liberal guilt hipster denounces Whitey as the source of all that's bad in the world. Gee, shocker. Rolleyes

This guy said it really well....

That's how cultural exchange works - you use bits and pieces from other groups of people and fuse it with other stuff. Sichuan cuisine, for example, exists because somebody brought hot peppers from the Americas over to China, where they were promptly assimilated and woven into the cuisine. Or think of fusion cuisine in general, like the food trucks that combine Korean and Mexican food around here.

It only feels like appropriation to me if you're actually claiming to be the original source of something. But I read a lot of broad accusations of it.

And this guy....

I've heard Mexican people saying they don't give a flying fuck if others want to celebrate Día de Muertos. And here we have Halloween parties, completely out of context.

I'm from Argentina. One of the latest winners of the Tango World Cup was a japanese couple. You won't hear ANYONE complain about japanese people "appropriating" our culture. On the contrary, people here are happy our stuff is known all over the world. Even Schwarzenegger doing random shit to the tune of Por una Cabeza in True Lies is only ever seen as funny. I don't think I know ANYONE who was offended by that.

Exactly. Man, this new bullshit PC era so needs to fucking die...yet again.

I can't believe I'm responding to you, but you picked the beginning sentences and ignored the rest.

Cultural appropriation is taking someone's culture and treating it like a costume or a gimmick. There's a stark difference between that and exchanging ideas, such as your sichuan example.

It is called borrowing an idea. It is one thing to make a racist portrayal, and quite another to borrow a colorful attire because it looks nice. Or cool. Or scary.

There is nothing wrong with that. It is a made up offense that people have to be "educated" to take offense at, and only then can you play an asinine guilt game with the "offenders" of the newly-educated "offendee".

It is a grotesquely racist concept.

If someone were to go trick-or-treating as a "video gamer," wearing baggy khaki cargo pants, white running shoes, a My Little Pony t-shirt, a trenchcoat, a fedora, and ran around going "Look at me, I'm a video gamer, I've never touched a girl!" a handful of people here would be offended.

But the problem is the person that is offended, not the one dressing like that....

Political correctness is a bullshit excuse for not granting other people their freedoms.

The first article is right; everything we've really seen for the PC VR has been tech demos or very short experiences that appear to be little more than the VR equivalent of a lame mobile phone game. Elite: Dangerous and Project Cars are the only two "full games" for VR, and they already were full games before VR. Of those two, only E:D is announced for both Oculus and Vive.
I'm excited to get my headset, but I'm seriously concerned about longevity. The current listings of games are aimed more at showing it off than actually using it for a full adventure.

Longevity will be even worse an issue because there is no back catalog. Games supporting VR need to be either already basically made for it (Racing games, flying sims, space sims) or they need to be made specifically for it. Hence why I am still waiting to see where this goes ;/

No you jackass, players want content that isn't ripped out of the game in the first place. And in the other they don't want malware infecting their machines and turning them into bitcoin miners or part of some botnet.

Fix your ads and it won't be a problem.

Exactly, by giving control over ads to 3rd parties, they gave up any rights to complain against ad-blocking.
