I've got multiple recent Sony TV purchases and they've all been great. Samsung "Spyware" TV isn't something I'll ever buy. Clearly Samsung can't be trusted.

Anybody who uses NoScript already has the <canvas> fingerprinting exploit blocked (for many years now) and would not need this CanvasBlocker add-on.

I put a support ticket in to Steam about half a year ago to fix GTA4, as their internal steam link causes stuttering in the game at regular intervals (about every 2-4 seconds), but if you launch the game outside of steam, directly through the game's launcher executable, it runs completely fine.

They kept re-directing me to contact Rockstar support, which I told them was ludicrous, as Rockstar's game runs completely fine (well, as fine as GTA4 can be considered to run..) when you don't launch it through steam. After further testing, it turns out that disabling the overlay is what fixes the problem, not just launching it outside of steam.. and I relayed this information to them after figuring it out, only to get the same response with links to Rockstar's support.

Didn't play GTA4 for many months after that, until I played recently and discovered that the bug still persists. It's not just me also, there are lots of posts from people who have the same issue in the steam forums.

Their customer support is pretty bad, IMO.

$100 for the ultra mega digital platinum collector edition. That said, I remember buying MK3 for the Genesis for $79.99 + tax at K-Mart in 1996 which, according to inflation, would be $111.02 before taxes so maybe I'm the sucker for not getting the $100 package.

Holy crap I didnt realize Genesis carts were that expensive! I never paid more than $59.99 for any SNES game that I can recall, never owned a sega console before though, besides a saturn I traded for a digital camera that took 3.5 inch floppies as film (some sony monstrosity..)

Both are supposed to work well. I am planning on installing the first one though because the author said you can disable xinput through his interface, which is essential for older direct input games/emulators if you play older titles.

Thank you! This is the one I bookmarked about a week ago, but I've not tried it yet.


The guide you linked walks you through setting up the 2nd program I linked. Both are based off the same driver (DS4tool) but with a different interface. You should be fine with either, really =)

Oh you're gonna love this then. Here in my city(~40k in Canada), they've started installing metal conduit on utility poles to stop copper thieves. Stupid bastards are cutting ground wires and pulling it off the poles.

Sounds like some Trailer Park Boys shit-- stripping utility poles of copper wire in small canada towns to try and fund a cannabis grow and feed bubbles' cats, lol

I've been rocking 60/12 ever since I got that docsis 3 surfboard you guys recommended. Didn't realize such speeds were available to me without changing my contract, I had been sitting at 30/7 for years.


What is this magical modem you are referring to and does it work with any cable internet provider? Very interested in this magic bandwidth doubling technology.

I think he's referring to upgrading to a DOCSIS 3.0 capable modem from a DOCSIS 2.0 modem.

Yep. Comcast has been bumping up speeds around here for a while I just didn't really care since I had no problems with my 30 that I was paying for since that's what I agreed to 5 years ago. They never informed me about how much they had increased it beyond mailers simply urging me to upgrade my modem to "unlock faster speeds" etc. with no specifics. I decided to get my own modem instead of theirs and someone pointed me at this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AJHDZSI

Thanks for the clarification. I thought for a second that you guys possibly had some inside info on some magic modem that would double cable internet speeds for anyone with cable internet. Lol

For the longest time I've had a 15/1 cable connection at my home because I was grandfathered into a pretty sweet deal for it ($30/mo for 15/1 with no caps, without television or phone bundled in)

Good guy ISP sends a letter at the beginning of December and says that because they've upgraded their network they are going to increase everyone's bandwidth free of charge. In my case the upgrade was to bring me to 20/2, and they said it would be done by the end of January. The upgrade was done around the middle of the month and is actually topping at 21/3. Can't complain one bit =)

Will be interesting to see if my ISP goes a further step and makes it 25/3 just to technically make it broadband so they can market it as such, especially because the current speed I have is so damn close to that it would seem to make sense to bump it that little extra bit to be able to give it that title. *crosses fingers*

Either way, I'm glad to have an alternative to the shitty 'big fish' ISP around here (Mediacom)

Been using a plugin to use html5 by default on YouTube for a while now. Haven't had a single problem with it so far, and I'm using Firefox on 64 bit Windows 7

The plugin has a little drop-down that lets you switch between html5 and flash if you want to, also.

And what of the people who did the CC fraud in the first place, I guess they got away with it.

They laundered the money through these key selling sites. It's common with key stores for large batches of keys to be used by the providers as a way to launder money and get away with credit card fraud like this.

who the fuck still plays this? or i guess a better question is: how many times can a sane person repeat the exact same dungeons over and over and over? 5? 10? 50? 100? 1000?

Reminds me of when I gave up playing Quake 1 on the internet.. came back from a multi-year hiatus to find everyone playing the same fucking map over and over again and just lost all interest.

Where's the fun in any of that? What's so awful about just playing by the rules?

Nobody is cheating, and no rules are being broken, it's just using different input devices to try and get something that works better for you. You're still emulating an analog device with a mouse in the end, and if someone is adept with the thumbstick, they are going to just as good, if not better. I just wouldnt have to learn how to use a shitty thumbstick for competitive fps, which would be a plus in my book.

All of this is just hyperbole about what could possibly happen with the streaming option, and I dont own and dont plan on owning an xBone ever, but if I did, I would have no problem with using a mouse/kb on it, even if by default others cant. Not a thumbstick FPS guy, and never will be.

See http://xim4.com/

I've seen those before, but I was referring specifically to PC. When streaming games you'll need a controller, but I'm assuming that controller is gonna be hooked up to the PC, not the Xbox. I'm talking about a software solution for that scenario.

How does going into someone else's level playing field with your own advantage in any way, shape, or form even vaguely resemble fun?

There is no level playing field. Simple as that. People have used adapters like this for consoles for over a decade. I suppose you think the PC is a "level playing field" too? Anyone can get an upper hand by using the tools at their disposal, whether it be a cut corner for a post-it note being used for a crosshair, config/ini tweaks to give an advantage wherever you can, 120hz+/crt monitors, etc.. these are all tools for people trying to get the upper hand in multiplayer games.

I've poured thousands of hours into Natural Selection, sometime between 2003 and 2006.
Natural Selection may be dead but in our hearts it will still live on. I think having a Gorge plushy is a nice memento, even though I am a bit disappointed that it's blue and not green. In Natural Selection it was certainly very green-yellowish and I've only played very little Natural Selection 2 to judge whether the blue colour is fitting. NS2 is too broken, unfortunately. At least it was last time I played it. :/

It's gotten alot better with the Community Development Team patches and they are still releasing maps for it with a decent playerbase still on every day.

NS2:Combat was a complete flop, however.
