Ah yes, Minecraft and Five Nights at Freddy's. Definitely titles deserving of RT/DLSS.

Don't dwell on it. Think of all those guys bragging about buying pizzas and other takeout with Bitcoins back when they were new. Man, I hope those restaurants hung onto those coins!
The $350m pizza order.

LOL, wow. 10,000 bitcoins for two pizzas... ugh... I am literally laughing to myself out loud reading that article. Now that's got to be some regret. Especially since mining bitcoins back then was so computationally cheap.. haha!

Somewhat interesting it wasn't directly to the pizza place though, I had misremembered that detail. Hopefully the intermediary kept those coins longer.

Toxoplasmosis Gondii, lead asborption, general low levels of intelligence, we may never fully know what drives people to risk their careers for petty theft or other nonsense. Similar to people stealing office supplies at work and getting fired... mathematically it makes no sense!

Long ago I bought $100 in bitcoin. Forgot about it. Got a new PC. Threw the old one away. It would be worth $74,000 now. Sigh.

Welp, guess I should finish up Cyberpunk 2077 now then. I'm on the last mission, just doing side mission shit, then I can uninstall, and reinstall in a year or so and replay. It'll be like a new game.

Wonder Woman 1984 was an atrocity. It was mind boggingly bad. I can't even fathom the decision making that must have gone into writing the plot. They could have just taken a classic Max Lord storyline and had a badass movie, but no, they had to countermand the first movie, and make terrible decision after terrible decision. Also, mindrape.

Of course it's just a DC movie, so what was I expecting?

Completely off topic for anything.. but I was wondering if anybody knows what happened to Creston? He commented pretty much daily until December 2019 and not a word after that!

Statistically, at least a few Bluesnewsers have gotten seriously ill or died from Covid19 by now. Or just other aspects of life intruding into video game website posting time, maybe nothing dramatic.

Haha! I was too late to make this exact comment.

That said, I've gotten a lot of hours out of the Ubisoft formula games, so I'm cautiously interested.

Massive Games didn't have towers....

No towers in Division 1 and 2, yes, but plenty of busy work. Enjoyable busy work, I loved Division 2 especially to log about 800 hours, of very repetitive but enjoyable grind.

70k, good start, now just suspend every other Twitter account there is, and call it a day. Then Facebook, Imgur, Gab, you name it.

Social media being shutdown entirely would be enormously beneficial for the human race. The past 10 years or so have shown that most people cannot filter out propaganda and lies at all, we're at the brink of death for the USA as a functional democracy as it is.

Then humanity can start working on cleaning up the televised propaganda. That'll probably take the rest of our natural lives.

Two guesses for locked bitcoins? Kiss that $240m goodbye. There have probably been billions of dollars worth of bitcoins lost at this point. Satoshi Nakamoto (whoever that may be, person or persons) probably already lost most of his/their bitcoins. Just, evaporated, passwords forgotten, or lost due to degradation of harddrives.

A much bigger and more immediate problem is still present: multiple armed attacks are planned before the 20th, being organized initially on Parler, now on various other services. Unfortunately the US is going to simply be too slow to shut down Gab and everything else even if they understood these other forums/programs, there will probably be gun battles in a half dozen cities before the 21st.

Really, the USA is never going to recover from the damage Trump and the Republicans have caused, and people are worried about corporate censorship, rofl.

"Why no one should be worried about Parler being booted from AWS, Apple and Google" fixed that article title for you. Because Parler (or anyone else) can always find alternate hosting, or host themselves. Expensive, but not illegal or even prohibited. Why should any business be forced to broadcast somebody's hate speech? Answer: in the USA you can be dropped at any time from any business. Thanks, conservatives.

Don't worry fascists, Gab and other less public social media toilets still exist. Go there.

Yes, I love it. Keep flushing it down the tubes.

I'd say these BTC comments didn't age well but when you guys posted this comment it had already had a major recovery.

Even if Bitcoin doesn't recover enough to convince people to buy/invest more into it, some other coin will pop up as the cryptocoin savior. Tulip bulb currency isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

/wistful/

Can you imagine living in a country right now, where the biggest(or at least, newest) concern is the government 'checking' with a company about a video game that cost $60 USD, and was already refunded to most people who weren't satisfied? Wow, that must be amazing.
