I'll agree some people are overly "patriotic" about this stuff ...

I think this a big problem with some vets; they get a God complex about what service gives them the right to say or do. I think this is wrong. If you want to burn the flag to show your frustration with policy or laws, do it. Also, please vote in your local elections. Congressional districts are decided by each state, so local elections matter.

Troops volunteer hoping to do something good. Ultimately, politicians decide what to do with what they give. If people don't see value, that's on those decision makers.

That's it right there. If you don't like the way your military is deployed, say something to your elected leaders. Or actually vote leaders into office that will make common sense policy decisions.

I disagree with that sort of propaganda - and it is propaganda. No soldier has lifted finger in defense of me in my lifetime, hell, not even my parents lifetime. Yeah, I'm grateful for the vets of WWII, but after that it's all just about hegemony and exploitation. There's nothing heroic about that.

We don't get to choose our missions or taskings asshat. All of us give some and some of us give all. Don't minimize our contribution or dedication.

Maybe its just me, but I grew up with Jewish friends so I feel like I've already lived through the entire series as a character in the show. Maybe not the same character in every episode mind you.

Thinking about building your first PC? Don't – buy a gaming laptop instead.
I have a Razer Blade 17" which is VERY (very) pricey but is a great machine. I can play Cyberpunk with everything on Ultra and its very snappy. Its not too loud - easily quieter than my PS4.

It's kinda no use to comment anything negative. Star Citizen fan will literally have the conversation they want to have; mainly that it's an improvement over previous versions.

I have run upnp... but it seems even though I haven't updated OpenWRT in a while, I scanned free and clear. Quit running junk software on your routers?

I hate to sound like one of those Linux guys who tells you you're doing it wrong, but you're doing it wrong. I'd say learn how firewalls and port forwarding works. It's really not all that complex. At the very least, you can train a chimp to forward ports.

If you rely on someone else to tell you you're secure, your security is as good (or as bad) as whatever tool they're using.

Pretty much anyone serious about network security has disabled this long ago.

If you haven't, do. UPnP has always been a giant Swiss cheese security hole.

Yeah, I'm kinda surprised this is still something we talk about.

Actually would love to know Derek's thoughts on the current state of the game.

Do you see what you did Half Elf? This is why we can't have nice things; this went from a 'look at the state of this game; 285Mil - 8 years in development and its still in Alpha to "0H my G0dz D3r3k IS 5UCH A n00b AND 7HI5 G4M3 R0CK0RZZZ!!

Okay, let's go

Honestly, its the only reason I read Star Citizen threads. I've bought cars for less than it costs for some of the packs they sell.

M249 Reload - PUBG Logic (ridiculously long reload times).

Followed only by how often the damn thing jams when it gets just a tiny bit of dust in it.

IF only gamers hadn't been stupid enough to buy drm laden PC games, dedicated servers would still be a thing in AAA games and your cheating point would be moot because we'd still have stuff like sdk's and modding for the AAA gaming space.

I'm not sure I totally agree. Quake, Quakeworld, Quake 2 and Quake 3 all had dedicate servers but cheating was still a problem when you played Internet games.

Cheaters are why I don't bother with online games anymore. Carmack called this way back in 2001 - its impossible to make a cheat-proof game so its better to play with your friends.

Wow, I can't believe this is still a thing we talk about. Development started in 2011 and they're still not done. How many triple AAA titles have been started and released in that time?

Here's my problem with EULAs like this:

Microsoft insisted it won't actively police its services – but, beware: it will investigate complaints from people who are offended by what you do on Redmond's platforms.

They can insist all they want but if its in the EULA then it can be used to end your service if they find whatever you're doing to be objectionable.

The next major update to Windows 10 is going to embed "machine learning" into the operating system, they plan to use it to analyze pictures and video content on your system. I'm sure they'll sell it as being some sort of automatic search and sorting feature. Looking for a picture of uncle bob? Just type his name in and up pops all the pictures on your computer with uncle bob in them.

I'm not too worried about this. I stopped using Windows day to day years ago. I mostly use Linux and macOS these days - and macOS only because it has better support for some key business apps I need for work.
