Well Hillary was just a bi-product for us. Hillary would be keeping people like Tom Wheeler in office. Keeping smart people in the right places for science funding, health care, and so on.

Hillary Herself, was by far not exactly what we wanted. But the administration even if possibly crony's would be far safer bet then what Trump has done for his Cabinet.

Like Pence, and bloody Rudy Guiliani... Rudy? F-that guy, he lost his marbles when 9/11 happened. And now last I read Trump wants him in some actual Government position again. Fuck me.

TPP last I was aware Hillary was against as well. Might still be on the table now? sure. But with NAFTA gone, Jobs do not magically appear. As mentioned before, here, China is lol'ing around it with all of the tricks they can use. How Trump will replace or whatever new deals if at all come from a Post NAFTA. Both Mexico and Canada can expect a shake-up. For better or worse.

After spending real time and money filing to immigrate my wife over under the way we were married. I found the US immigration is one of the worst places to try to get into. Unless your heavily into a company that will sponsor you for a H1 Visa. I think they are called, its been a while.

And when they do that the company has to reapply every year or so. And that is before Lump puts new anti-immigration policies in place.

But yeah if you come from a total dump of a country you can asylum... again until Lump gets his laws in order.

My ISP contract price is the same for.. 11 years now Although shit speeds

You are from Germany or Europe at the least if I remember right. I get it, its fun to LOL at American Internet from this side of the ocean. Honestly I'm terrified that kind of crap spreads over here eventually. I'm told that it is here, but they usually scam people who do not switch provider's. At least there is better competition here then in the US.

In my home state you had 4 options, Cable internet for $60+, ancient DSL lines(128KBps down) for $30, or cell phone internet and 56K dial-up.

When I moved over here, I was stuck at the same speeds I had back home off cable. But for so much cheaper it sounded just fine. Then moving onto super cheap, super fast, Muni-Broadband tells me to never look back. But I still dread if the same pro-company crap ends up here.

Not so sure what this adds on top of anything you can already get in a mod. Maybe the combat changes and such. Or the continuous National Focuses. An autonomy system might be something. It might lay good ground work for improved mods as well.

But still some of this looks like it should be patched in and not sold as a exp pack. But it is paradox, so the games they sell are generally parted out to begin with. Looking at you Cities: Skylines...

So like alot of Google idea's and programs. Like Google+ and everything else they take, expand, run with. They find the numbers are not great so they make little nudges like this to shut down expansion, or start to spin it off into nothingness.

Seriously, Google, is like a teen with ADHD. Just doing amazing things for a while, getting bored of it and then trying something new. Not the best way to run an ISP in the long term. Super crappy they are the main thing keeping ISP's even remotely trying to improve there services in the US.

Really more interested in that crappy Data-cap limit. 1TB can be blown in a month pretty quick. If you say buy an Xbox and download your games library... We filled up our 500GB drive in the span of two days. And that's not counting what we do on the PC or Youtube Streaming for the entire month. 1TB is not alot. Horrifically low.

But whatever they rationalize it under fairness, what about our fairness to choose provider's? Ohh right does not matter to them.

And to Anon, whatever they do is a double edged sword to a US citizen. One, they breach government security. And thus look nothing but bank robbers or scary thieves. Two, they can nab stupid shit like TPP agreements or the like. The American public will ether shake there heads and do nothing, or support it based on whoever made the agreement's to begin with. Hell, there is still a section of the US populous that would welcome Slavery back even. You CANNOT get the entire populous.

The way Anon works not it will not rally much of American populous, it will at most rally people against them unless its planned out properly over something more then 80% of the population believes in. That's why they can do sword waving at ISIS and other well ment but useless wars they fight. And get some level of passive support.

Good for Amazon. I hate UPS with a passion. If that's my only choice for shipping for an online order I'll forgo the order instead. Point in fact, whenever I have to ask a US company about their shipping options I'll tell them that explicitly up front.

I feel you on that. When I immigrated to Germany and had to try to find a way to send my stuff over. I went to UPS. For one box of collectable gaming crap I wanted to send myself. They wanted $400 and a stack of declaration papers filled out. I know alot of it was due to German laws, but F-me $400 for a single box.

We use USPS to send myself somethings, its still a bit pricey even for snail shipping. Bloody sucks.

Living here we have to deal with stricter import laws, even if you just give it the "Gift" claim, there is a chance it gets stopped and they demand you pay taxes on whatever you are being sent.

Why do hacker's hack. Well they have a flow chart showing some of the more positive answer's.

But I think it needs expanding. Such as hacker's hacking to be a dick to others, holding grudges against society or some one. God complex's. Daddy did not love them or Mommy ran away. Its the same crap spoiled teens use to try to defend themselves.

But as the article shows there are "good" hacker's. People who help keep companies from making my account info easier to get. So Its not all bad. But forgive me for having a pessimistic feeling, next time I have to reset a password cause a website was hacked.

Legit question here, Is Bioshock 2 a decent game? I played Bioshock 1, 2 times through and loved it. I watched Jim Sterling go on about how much better 2 is. I have access to 2. Is it a better game then 1?

War's over boys! You will get your go home paper's from the front lines soon. It was a hard fought war. But we certainly won the long game in the end.

Anyone know a good place to get a wireless dongle adapter for my Xbox controller? I gotta play Red Dead redemption through my Xbox store front... off my PC.

hmm

Not sure what rights the average EU person gives up. The kind of rules they mention are common here already. The Youtube rule part looks to be the only problem here. But sitting in Germany I have to deal with GEMA already. Alot of the time it feels like it could not get worse then that.

What exactly are you calling socialism? I only see government protecting average citizen's from bad corporations. If you have to make the argument that its socialism and big government from where your sitting go ahead. I however will be downloading a 40GB game, while watching 3-4 episodes per day of my favorite series on a HD streaming service a day. For $25 a month and no such thing as a Data Cap. Hey, enjoy your version of Freedom then, you can keep it

Details of the contract released by carry player Jeroen "Xaliea" Klaver in a TwitLonger yesterday show that the deal the players were being told to accept was for a salary of $1 per month, with a 75% share of tournament winnings (after tax and travel expenses) and 0% of in-game merchandise sales.

Wow that's pretty crazy. You ether win or you lose completely.

News Comments > Interplay IPs for Sale
31. Re: Interplay IPs for Sale Sep 8, 2016, 10:06 ZeroPike1
 
So basically they took there inventory of IP's and are dropping it off at the nearest vendor like in an MMO. Not giving a crap about its actual value or possible purposes.

It will be interesting to see what company picks up what IP's from this. Going to be some dashed hopes by the end of it, I'm sure.

But maybe some good will come and we get some sequels/re-releases rolling out that are at least half decent. Would be nice to get away from the zombie like Interplay.

Even though I have a card capable of handling VR games. The VR games on display are crap, or they are niche appeal and nothing I would play.

Will be looking into VR when they become possibly wireless, and High quality visual's combined with decent gameplay. So maybe 3-5 years at the rate its going.

The Leave EU people are the best. They sound like the dumb Texan's wanting to leave the US any time there panties get in a bunch over some trivial BS. Like children throwing a fit at there parents when they are told they have to eat there vegetables, but the child's response is to run away from home and make his own home! With out vegetables being required. That will show'em!! Just stupid.

The EU is not the best, but NO government is, by default. The good thing about the EU is that they can throw judgements at companies who are tax dodging like Apple and more then likely get them to be held accountable. Look at those numbers. That is some serious tax dodging. Its unfair to everyone even to the Irish locals who pay the full normal tax amount.

If the news read, ohh Ireland is suing Apple for back taxes. Nobody really cares outside of Ireland. But the EU says it? There is a TON more weight behind it.

And you cannot throw that 6000 jobs thing at anybody. Same kind of argument is made about the Coal miner's in the US. Its a sad story to see a job go. But ruining everything else for those 6000 jobs is worse.

Well I'm having a decent time with it. The questing is very well done.

So far on casual playing I got to 102. But It does not matter. The idea of this expansion is to grind up your new Artifact weapon. Which you can do via questing and/or dungeoning. That is Blizz's main hook this time.

'Course they could just do what alot of modern Europe does and put Utilities underground, and let the state run the underground tube.

But whatever I guess, Europe is backwards and the US is forwards... even more so when a bad wind storm knock's a Utility power pole out for 4-5+hours...

I do not get it. I really do not. Why would you want to limit Muni-Broadband? Why would you not encourage more and faster internet growth in your community? Why can states limit this? under what logical reasoning do they even use?

The general idea is that Cable businesses pay for the laws to restrict it, by buying legislators. I get that. But only the biggest businesses can buy an entire state's legislative body across multiple states. Unless they are that cheap to begin with?
