Big companies dealing in millions of dollars do shit like this because it saves them money, in some cases quite astounding amounts of money. It's the reason why big companies get bigger while fucking ignorant dirt farmers sit around on forums picking navel lint and bitching about everything. ;)

*Butthurt backer radar pinging*

Whatever happens ( if it ships or not ), this will probably make history as a mandatory case study on how not to waste money when developing a game by showing examples of the ways of how someone can waste money.

Since people won't read the article:

Basically they just codified giving officer's discretion on ticketing for it, along with increasing the severity of the penalty if they do ticket you.

Sounds like a good way to trick people into not restraining themselves from texting then cashing in on it...

This whole story is ridiculous... The US laws and courts have no jurisdiction in other countries, what's more, their theft of his assets will probably never be given back.

Regarding steam. Ive had games fail on physical media more times than withdrawn from being able to play.

But then I played hundreds of disc games over 20+ years and haven't had a single one fail which wasn't my own fault.

Socialist control freaks use good intentions rhetoric.

You ever met a socialist? Like a real life socialist?

Don't waste your time, he probably never even heard of Noam Chomsky, much less grasp the notion that what the USSR did wasn't socialism, that Bernie wasn't a socialist, neither was Hitler nor is North Korea or China and that real socialism implies decentralized decisional powers as much as possible, small cooperatives democracy style. That for there to be socialism, totalitarianism is a big no no, etc.

7740X slower than 7700K, consumes more power ( cpu specific, not including platform ). Ouch.
7900X consumes 100% more power than 1800X, only 30% faster. Double ouch.

Both running very hot with low-perf TIM.

AMD could have a win if threadripper @ 12 cores is the same performance as Intel 10 cores with less power usage.

State has no business in dealing with end of life issues. If someone wants to commit suicide that's their business and not Big Brother's or the Xtian right-wing extremists out there to interfere. Plenty of people out there who want and desperately need all kinds of help, so help them.

This^^

The Russians attacked us and there’s copious evidence to prove it.

Then PRESENT the evidence and I will change my mind, none was presented so far, not a single shred of evidence in 8 months was presented.

NKD wrote on Jun 13, 2017, 23:19:
Are people still denying Russia fucked with our election process?

There is nothing to deny. A claim without evidence ( presented evidence ) can be dismissed without evidence.

I don't care what this or that US citizen thinks, the Drumpf included, until evidence has been duly PRESENTED, not buying it, as should I in any matter regarding any subject. Otherwise its pretty much like "God is real, trust me". Sorry folks, present evidence or gtfo.

Strange belief spreading system you got over there in the media and some parts of so called "sciences". I now understand more and more how the US culture can build house of cards of science denialism, religious interference in science ( among others ) and media propaganda without any third party validated presented evidence whatsoever, and then defend and uphold them tooth and nail as if they were holy gospel.

Tell that to Reality Leigh Winner.

She leaked the top secret docs to the intercept and got arrested, so what? By your alleged assertion that means that A = C. Its a non-sequitur. It doesn't mean that the leaked documents had any evidence in them, it just means they were top secret documents, which is all we can be sure of atm as it is the only evidence that was presented.

A = Top secret documents leaked
B = Evidence in them
C = Evidence presented

I can't take it for their word that A = C if they can't prove, or won't show, that A = B and B = C.

That's not how it works. That goes against basic maths and logic as well as proper procedure.

Ofc, if you want to believe it, believe whatever you want to believe. I won't interfere with your beliefs, but don't try to get me to share them when that's the best ( which is essentially nothing but conjectures and speculation ) you got to back it up.

I thus reaffirm, present evidence or it didn't happen US.

That Russia article... *goes to source at bloomberg* no evidence... *goes to bloomberg's source at the intercept* slides and redacted documents without any substance whatsoever and no sources.

No computer logs, no traceroutes, no IP adresses, no data nor metadata, nothing, but slides anyone could've come up with and useless words on redacted documents.

"We have evidence 'just trust us'."

Once again, like I've been saying for the past 8 months, PRESENT EVIDENCE OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

Heh the i7 being is demoted to "midrange" processors. This ladies and gentlement is what we call a big "Fuck You" directed straight back towards AMD and Ryzen.

No mention of the i3, I imagine it's being discontinued.

Once again the ball is in AMD's court. No idea how the i9's will perfom, but I imagine they will probably wipe the floor with Ryzen.

Doubtfull, my prediction is that AMD's 16 cores and Intel's 18 cores will tie in most productivity suites and Intel maybe scoring a few wins here and there, especially on those legacy single core happy applications and, strangely, AOTS.

AMD's platform will overall be much cheaper, no one will care about ram OC on those for better gaming perf. Intel will go back to its old ways of "bribing" OEMs. That's it.

Memorial Day? More like Big Empire, Big Bank and Big Corp Imperialist Day... They don't die for their country, they're dying and mass murdering for oil/other resources, for money, for power. They're no heroes, they're stooges/tools/goons/lackeys/slaves.

If only it were limited to VW and Fiat, but if the info that flies through hacker community in Germany is true this cheating is done (in slightly different less retarded form) by ALL manufacturers with Diesel engines. Literally, ALL of them.

Not only the hacker community, a recent publication of the Science&Vie French magazine had all the dirt on this and it wasn't only for diesel vehicles if I remember right. All manufacturers were represented, all of them cheating on the test when compared to actual road tests. Some less than others, but all of them were caught cheating.

Heck, they even prove that industries other than car manufacturers also blatantly cheat and/or lie.

Uploaded the whole article of the December 2016 #1191 release to IMGUR if you can read french, but no need to read it when you look at the graphs...

EDIT: Sorry, stupid IMGUR rotated the pic of the graph -_-

Quote:"Tequila Works argued internally over whether to include the DRM, ultimately choosing to do so because "we want to ensure the best gaming experience for Rime players.

Rime is a very personal experience told through both sight and sound," wrote Dariuas, the Rime community manager, on Steam. "When a game is cracked, it runs the risk of creating issues with both of those items, and we want to do everything we can to preserve this quality in RiME."

*bullshit meter going off the scale* xD xD xD xD xD
