Anyone hear rumors or find undocumented stuff in UE5 about web3 style in-app purchases?

I keep hearing that Activision is in talks with Enjin but I haven't found anything but internet hearsay.

I haven't heard any specific rumors about Epic though.

I don't get this stuff like and NFT's and such but I'm old and it is the 'way of the world' that I should not grok the next big new thing

I believe this is ultimately what these lawsuits are all about.

I will definitely go back to this to try out the "S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Loadouts" feature. Haven't done the BOS stuff yet so it will be fun to have a choice in game play style without clicking around and thinking through all the choices everytime.

Would love for them to add different music but I know that must be pricey.

Hagler vs Hearns
One of the best boxing matches of all time.

Came here to say the same thing.

Worth a watch if they show it on a classic boxing matches show or stream. Some of the most strategic non stop slug fests you will ever see.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Harry Lorayne for teaching me how to remember things like complex passwords many years ago when I thought I was going to be a great magician working in Vegas

I use a password manager to login places like here but not for anything financial or server/email management.

Hopefully, I don't get hit in the head the wrong way someday. If so, I'm screwed.

You might want to add a crypto option. Like a bitcoin or ethereum wallet address.
Be forewarned, though, cashing it out is a tax minefield and it is crazy volatile these days.
I only have some because years ago I had to be able to offer some of my clients the ability to pay ransomware extortionists (against my advice but if they are going to do it I make sure it is done right). Also because I wanted to play with the concepts of ethereum contracts on the dev side of things.

Me, I'll just keep paying in good old Uncle Sam dollars.

Keep up the good work. It is appreciated.

The first Dawn of War was awesome. I played most of the DLC too, but the second one failed to grab me at all.

Feel the same. I vaguely remember DoW 1 had a problem with balance that I felt could have been patched and tweaked better to make it REALLY good. Especially the Soul Storm DLC

I thought about it a lot when Starcraft 2 came out and they kept tweaking the balance. Every time they tweaked balance in SC2 for better or worse, I wished DoW had gone that route.

The Korean e-sports scene really pushed devs to the next level. Still watch SC2 on Twitch sometimes.

I hadn't thought of the e-waste aspect of modern smart watches but it struck me that even though I've always been a digital watch wearer (calculator watch geek in the 80's, yachting and flight watches in the 90's and aughts for altimeter and barometer functions among others) I always resold them on eBay or at my computer club when I replaced them with a new one and never threw them away.

I doubt I can do that with this Apple watch I got last month.

I remember what made Nielsen so funny in Airplane. He was a well known dramatic actor so it was a real WTF moment when he did such outlandish comedy. Of course the man had an excellent sense of comedic timing (I've seen him live) so that is what will make or break Neeson. I hope it works out. We could use some outlandish comedy these days

I read Forever And A Day last year which is an origin story by Anthony Horowitz using some original unpublished material from Ian Fleming. It was good (if you like Fleming's Bond as opposed to the 'movie' Bond) but I have trouble seeing it made into a compelling action video game.
Wonder where they got the origin story from.

This discussion is definitely happening in hushed tones and in closed meetings at all the major companies. So this person is probably a bit of a loud mouth who hears this often but no one wants to say it publicly and he lashed out with his comment in the wrong venue

I remember years ago with the popularity of Starcraft 2 streaming, Blizzard licensed tournaments and the rules seemed kind of fuzzy as to what constituted a tournament requiring a license. Questions like, "Does somebody hosting a bunch of players playing for a $100 prize need to be licensed?"

Then the craziness of the growth of League of Legends audiences really got the suits looking for revenue streams.

I figure that most are waiting for a tipping point where they feel the free advertising aspect is outweighed by potential licensing revenue and their ability to enforce it (maybe by audience size or views).

The fact that really sticks in their craw is that some of these streamers are pulling in significant money using their product and these companies operate by licensing products and services themselves. Both purchasing them and selling them in order to operate their businesses. So they probably believe the same rules apply to these streamers.

With the number of streamers growing like it is, I will be ordering a big bucket of popcorn for this one.

Agree with you Blue. The Man from UNCLE was a welcome and surprisingly good movie. Just the right balance of stylish 60s action, fun and humor.

I have been using that movie as an example of why they should reboot the James Bond movie franchise as a 60s throw back. Despite the admirable job Daniel Craig has been doing, Bond just doesn't work in the modern era, not as originally envisioned by Ian Fleming. He's a misogynistic womanizing creature of the 60s.

A 60s James Bond reboot would be so cool. Think of the cars. The clothes. The gadgets. And Bond could be... Bond. Heck get Arnie Hammer to play Bond... UNCLE was practically a dry run for it.

Also agree. My only complaint was "Where are all the cigarettes?" But I guess only old timers like me remember their incredible prevelance back then and what are you gonna do? Make the actors smoke? Imagine the Tweets!

We moved our main domain to use Fastmail 2 years ago and are very happy so far. Moved some of our other domains to it but not all (never put all your internet eggs in one basket).
I've heard good things about Protonmail too from people I know so at least those two seem like good options and are not expensive. I'm sure there are others that also seem to respect privacy (you never know for sure).

We use Thunderbird to download all mail for a local backup periodically but otherwise we use the web clients and mail clients built into whatever OS we are using.

The hardest part was ditching Outlook since I was a Microsofty for so many years.

On Penrose, started tackling his book The Road to Reality this year. Highly recommend it to any of you comfortable with 3d engine level math.

Just last week I was commenting to someone on how amazing it was that Eddie Van Halen moved so successfully into composing for synthesizers as late in his career as he did since guitar players like him practice ALL THE TIME. Like Skwisgaar Skwigelf in Dethlok. Ritchie Blackmore didn't even learn to drive until he was almost 40.

I'm sure he had more great art in him. Sad day.
