Some friends and I used to cut vines and swing on them as kids. The first few swings were always quite telling if it was going to be a stable and fun vine. I landed on my butt one time with that ominous crack sound coming from above. Several seconds later a branch broke over my head. Luckily it was only 4-5" diameter and a little rotten. It split in half when it hit me, but I can say with certainty that it was the hardest I've even been hit in my life. And to be honest I'm probably luckily that I managed to stumble away with only a concussion.

Our family stumbled into Iphones after starting with some seriously dumpster fire Android offerings (early Nexus era). They've been perfect for us and our limited usage. It's nice that they are updated 4-5 years out, and the hardware quality is good.

Rabbit charger is a fail. Lose one outlet and gain a retractable cord mechanism that's sure to break.

Someone may have thrown a wooden shoe (sabot) into the works at Tesla, I hope they get persecuted to the fullest extent allowed by law.

I need an RGP tooth brush to compliment my RGB pink rubber pencil eraser. The best part of an rgb mouse is covered by the fleshy part of a persons hand.


Musk is an asshole boss with a prosecution complex. I have no idea how he gets the press coverage he gets.

Okay, what is this "gold rush" you guys are talking about? Is it a specific event of some kind? Or just another way to talk about the trading stuff? I did the trading exotics thing, decked out a fighter and an explorer. Put a couple of hundred hours into the game -- but I haven't played in probably 1.5 - 2 years now...

The game-play loops are so ridiculously broken that 'gold rushes' are often found and then later patched out. Recent example were skimmer missions. Basically you log in and log out repeatedly at a station taking 'kill the skimmers' missions are one specific location. After you've loaded up on them you take dumb fire missiles, fly to the spot, fire one missile from your space ship (no need to take a rover), and then return and turn in all your missions for credits. I think this one was in the earn 100 million per hour range.

Just a thoroughly broken game.

News Comments > Apple Rejects iOS Steam Link App

There's been other incidents of Apple not allowing certain books/comics, apps on their store simply based on content. No thanks, I won't have some company regulating what I am allowed to read/view. Apple banned this app because it's basically a storefront where they won't get a 30% cut of the profit.

I never even considered Steam Link via IOS devices, that would have been brilliant. I enjoyed the Shadowrun games on my ipad. Wish there were more like that available.

The timing is interesting considering the recent Steam news on limiting adult content, and then reversing.

Storefront costs being brought up to defend Steam vs. Apple.. Truly hilarious.

How did you report that? "Boss, can't come to work today. I have a serious case of Battletechitis."

Technically, I didn't. There was a conference this week, my team lead went, along with my manager, my director, and two of my teammates. I told the other guy who stayed back that I'd probably work from home the next day. He didn't want details, I didn't give them. GI issues can be like that.

Gaming Impulse issues?

I jumped into it last night a little. The game play, story telling, and art direction is excellent. The 3d graphics are quite janky for a 2018 title.

Too much Ibuprophen is bad, but nowhere near as bad as too much Acetaminophen.

The dangers of both of those are they're ototoxic and ibuprofen in particular can really spike your blood pressure dangerously high depending on your genetics. I found that out the hard way. I was prescribed prescription strength ibuprofen once for pain and it was pushing my BP over 200. So I got yanked off that PDQ. If you have to take those or aspirin always do so sparingly and as minimally as possible.

You have high blood pressure all the time. Not even a doctor and I can tell you that.

There was an Army study a while ago on expired meds., they concluded that medications still worked well past the expiration date, but sometimes with slightly lowered efficacy.

This cold season was rough. Our toddler made sure to bring it all home between November and December, and it laid me out for a solid two months of various sniffle/cough/hack/fever fun. It all promptly started the weekend after our family flu shots.

Well they managed to ruin one game that should have been easy. I suppose they can ruin a new Bioshock game just as easily too.

Bioshock was ruined two games ago.. they are just adding to the pile now.

Let me guess: Bezos did not pay anything/enough to support Trump's campaign? Or Trump (or some of his supporters) did invest in a competitor of Amazon?

On the other hand: it would be amazing if not only Amazon, but also other big companies like Apple, Microsoft, Google, et al. would pay fair taxes - as all US citizens should do. This way a general health insurance and general pension insurance could easily be financed which would be a nice step forward from the 1800s pioneer (take whatever you can - screw the other people) idea to the 1900s (together we are stronger and better).

Bezos owns WaPo.

There's really one thing I want to know.

What was the disinformation?

Should be easy enough to supply the actual posts - because in my experience Russia has been publicising information from Wikileaks documentation - which has a 100% correct 100% of the time track record - through things like RT.

I'd like to know if we're seeing those sort of things - which would be rightly dubbed information, or if we're seeing nonsense - which would be disinformation.

Right now I've been seeing all sorts of claims, but I've yet to see examples of the actual posts.

I sure HAVE seen misinformation during the election - but from a PR company Hillary's camp hired that did a very poor job covering their tracks (buying up lapsed domains, failing to successfully anonymise the domain transfers, creating junk fed clickbait sites, then publicising attack stuff against Trump that was literally fake news that somehow got trended in Facebook despite Alexa showing the sites had zero traffic...)


You answered your own question.
