From the enrollment agreement with Kiddie Academy
“A PAST TIME FEE of $ 1.00 will be added to your child’s tuition charges for each 1 minute(s) after the academy closes that your child is NOT picked up. If your child is not picked up from the academy within 1 hour of closing, Kiddie Academy may contact the proper authorities.”
Synaschizm wrote on Jul 21, 2021, 19:17:Yeah, that's pretty much my headspace. I'm not letting them capitalize on a beloved IP and extort more money because of trash development and management. FO76 had amazing potential. They blew it at launch. They blew it with preorder rewards. They blew it with 'no npcs'. They blew it with artificial caps on inventory (that can conveniently be solved by paying monthly). They blew it with allowing magic and hacked items to stay in the game. Over and over and over. It can be a fun experience.....DESPITE a myriad of poor development and management decisions. But it could have been great.HorrorScope wrote on Jul 21, 2021, 10:40:No, thats where it pays off for M$ and Bethesda. Keeping those weapons and hacks in the game SINCE LAUNCH and doing nothing about them, so that players are essentially forced to spend even more money for a private server so they don't have to worry about the hacking assholes. .... A buggy, hacked mess being "programmed" by mobile devs that don't really have a sense of direction. There are SO MANY bugs and QoL issues in the game its ridiculous.
That's where the new Bethesda servers may payoff for a person like you. We don't know what the rules will be on them, perhaps some may make that build/legacy weapons unusable.

I don't enjoy the compact format and would rather watch shows/movies in a couch/television environment. I watch some things on my tablet when I'm getting ready in the morning or out and about....but for relaxing entertainment, I def prefer a couch/television.
On phones, especially on iPhones, the pixel dimensions tend to be greater than desktop displays. The 11 Pro Max and Xs Max, for example, have a render pixel size of 1242 x 2688, which is larger than 2K resolution. If that is present in the Dock, then people are in for ultra-high video quality. It might be even better watching a film and TV shows on the Dock than a phone and more comfortable to hold than a bulky tablet.

I enjoyed the game early on....but after a while, having to fast travel to find three places that aren't cleared out by hacked/magic players or have multiple boss events spoiled by same....or getting one-shot by a stealthed Bloodied-Unyielding player while trying to get resources from a workshop.... Screw it. I'm not paying for a private server just to be able to play.
Bethesda need to sort out the hacked weapons, duplicators crashing servers, constant "not responding", inconsistent approach to deprecated kit that ruins events.
256 GB NVMe SSD (PCIe Gen 3 x4)My quick google-fu isn't giving me any specific tech specs for "high-speed" NVMe other than enterprise gear....which seems odd for a consumer hand held.

The Workshop, what was once a pretty nice feature, has now turned in to a dumping ground.

It sounds like that's the standard they're applying.The Ubisoft spokeswoman declined to comment on individual cases. “Any employee that had allegations and remain at Ubisoft has had their case rigorously reviewed by a third party and were either exonerated or underwent appropriate disciplinary actions,” she said. “Employees who have been under investigation would not remain at Ubisoft if results of investigations warranted termination.”

Second, if he lost work due to unsubstantiated rumors, then he should bring a wrongful termination suit against those corporations. Instead he's choosing to use the courts against those with the least resources to defend themselves, the women in this story.
Third, not only is he choosing a type of lawsuit that is hard to win, his tactics in executing the suit are making it even harder (presenting a poorly prepared complaint, pushing to be considered a public person, filing in CA, pushing to move venue to the defendant-friendly LA courts, etc.).
What all of this points to is that he seems less concerned about truly winning the case, and more concerned with the optics ("I'm fighting to clear my name!") and punishing the women who called him out.

Boycotts and the court of popular opinion are things that have always been a part of human culture....obviously. Social media has taken the 'court of popular opinion' to wildly insane heights and far reaching effects that are damaging our society's ability to function. Think back to how people acted about Nixon 'the crook' or Kennedy 'the papist'....it was nasty, but nothing like what it is currently. Three things that come to mind that are interesting (though very limited in scope) analogs would be HUAC, Lindy Chamberlain, and the Salem Witch Trials....but again...they were comparatively narrow and limited in their damage.
Because... it doesn't really exist? It's a nice, scary label to put onto something that's normal and has always happened?
