Oh brother...

I was just listening to NPR, they were discussing recent sexual harassment issues/charges and specifically the latest ones concerning Kevin Spacey. And some clown said (paraphrased), "I think it is likely there will be serious lawsuits against Fox and Disney which could bring those corporations down."

Okay, I am not making any comment about any person's guilt or non-guilt in these cases. However, to think sexual harassment lawsuits will bring down multi-billion dollar corporations shows a serious disconnect from reality.
That sounds like a man on the street interview, didn't know NPR did those. Fox even renewed dipshits contract after he had already paid 23 32 million dollars to one of the women he sexually harassed. It's all about the money, no corporations will fall.

Women rescued by Navy defend their account of ordeal at sea Reads like a tRump tweet.

Well, that whole story is sad. People panic under stress, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, but mistake after mistake. They even got rescued BEFORE the coast guard by a fishing vessel?! They had an EPIRB and never turned it on?! Whatever, now they're safe, and they should probably get a bill from the Navy, but it'd probably be too much negative press to be worth it.

I get the sense they aren't exactly experienced sailors either, but who knows. Three news stories about this is probably at least 2 too many already.

Professional sailors have said that on a boat that size it would be nice to have 3 experienced sailors. One of those ladies stated that she knew nothing about sailing.

As for panicking under stress, they had months to recover on the open sea's along with their well fed "emotional support" pups.

The Trumpification of the GOP is in full swing, however. Corker, Flake, and others are retiring, Bannon is fielding primary candidates from the right, etc.
Flake, McCain, and Corker are out. Roy Moore is in.
Now that's some good government right there.

I sometimes wonder if these guys know how the Internet works. There's always going to be a strong encryption solution floating around, and you're not going to stop people from getting their hands on it.

"Store plaintext copies of everything" is just begging for hacks. No company is going to open themselves up to that kind of liability intentionally.
Not if you farm it out to a respected company like Equifax.

Didn't FEMA approve the contract? Why would they agree to that?

Also, that wouldn't hold up in court, IMO.

I dunno but we gotta fix this.

Your appointment to FEMA should be finalized within the week.

Who did you pay off, and how much was it?
And fix the flood insurance fiasco while you're at it because it was never meant to continually fix the same home, year after year after year after...

The same way world of warcraft, steam, loot boxes and microtransactions exist.

The ship of stupid sailed when Ultima online and EQ became a thing, normalizing online drm. We got generations of kid who are ok with basically the theft of software from their computers and no privacy because they are dumb as a bag of hammers.

The videogame idiocracy sailed as soon as mmo's became a thing paving the way for steam, then league of legends and TF2.

The fact that these god awful games exist and are totally controlled by game companies now is a far cry from the 90's with level editors and user control of software.

Well so sorry that the old days of levelling editing on the DOOM engine wasn't meant to last.

You didn't have full control of your software even then. You just built a game off of the building blocks that the developer deemed fit for you to play with.

Remember how DOTA originated? It was from a mod in Warcraft 3(and some will say it went back even further to the original Starcraft). And the scene just grew from there when the developers of DOTA made their own engine.

If you want to live in the good ol' days of '90's, nothing's stopping you.

That is hilarious if true (Denuvo). Denuvo's gonna put itself out of business...


What's the over/under on when it gets cracked? The last few Denuvo protected games have taken a day or so, but no crack so far.

Denuvo is still running even after it's cracked so cpu usage would not change.


Seen this nonsense in so many places. One would think even common sense would be enough to come to a reasonable conclusion, so much for that.

Please provide just one single instance (with multiple benchmarks at varying resolutions etc...) where a game improved or cpu usage significantly changed, after it was cracked and before a developer removed Denuvo. I'm sure we would all be interested in them.
It should be easy for you since you have seen "so many places".

Blue, are you going to get moved before the end of the year? Seems like the process has been taking a bit longer than you'd have thought...

At this point I'd say we won't, we seem to be perpetually a couple of weeks away from putting the house on the market. I've grown to realize that MrsBlue is actually being an obstruction at this point because of her misgivings about this all. So I've decided that the only way to keep this from making me crazy is to do my best to facilitate, but to go with the flow and not let it make me crazy. It'll all work out in the end.
On the bright side, your home is all fixed up now.

Not beating a dead horse because this horse ain't dead, yet.
In this video Jennifer Appel says "Had they not been able to locate us we would have been dead in 24 hours."
Whereas the Follow-Up link blue posted has this: “We asked why during this course of time did they not activate the EPIRB. She had stated they never felt like they were truly in distress, like in a 24-hour period they were going to die,” said Coast Guard spokeswoman Petty Officer 2nd Class Tara Molle, who was on the call to the AP with Carr.
Ignoring the "storm they encountered", obvious health of the women and 2 dogs including lack of weight loss, this story doe not jibe in my book. But I could be wrong.

Creston, what exactly is giving out on your speakers? I'm just asking because I have a pair of Dahlquist speakers from the early 80's that finally had the foam that supports the outside of the cones start to fall apart so I bought a re-coning kit from these guys...

https://www.simplyspeakers.com/speaker-recone-kits.html

... and was able to fix them up as good as new for $31.
From what I have read about the Klipsch 4.1/5.1 Promedia it appears the failure is in the electronics/amp section.

Thanks for the speaker repair link, bookmarked it. Here is something else to keep in mind https://www.parts-express.com/cat/hi-fi-woofers-subwoofers-midranges-tweeters/13
Talk about wallet draining ear-bleed https://www.amazon.com/Klipsch-R-15PM-Powered-Monitor-Black/dp/B01A7J534G and don't forget to add the matching sub.

Nothing has come out yet to make me think the GOP will impeach Trump, not even close.
There's nothing to impeach him for yet.
Nope. Enormous amounts of smoke, and maybe a dozen things that are 20% good enough, but nothing has surfaced (or clearly looks to surface imminently) that is good enough.
Okay, first I thought I said nothing had come out which would get him impeached. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that's what I said.

Second, impeachment is a political process not a legal one. Hence it suffers all the problems any political process does.

Third, unless I misread your "tone" (certainly possible) you'll disagree when I say IMHO, Trump has already committed impeachable offenses. I believe he attempted to obstruct justice when he fired Comey. That said, even if every single GOP member of Congress agreed with me on that, they still would not impeach him.

I think we were all agreeing with you, apologies if it came across like Verno was disagreeing and I was then doubling down with him.

And I'd wager, with Trump, it's not about what he'll do but if and when we find out, so yeah, I do agree with you. There was just a mismatch of us agreeing and realizing it.
In the vernacular that is referred to as ya'll being in violent agreement with one another.
