He hasn't told us anything about what he intends to do other than to build a wall, which is the stupidest fucking idea in history. I will GLADLY debate an idea or a policy I will NOT debate on whether someone that says racist things is racist. You are asking me to ignore reality and I will not do that.

Haha yeah those Romans and Chinese were so stupid to build walls. The Roman Empire would still be around if they had just been nicer to barbarians!

Do you have a lock on your door?

You have no idea what you're talking about. You think most of the 11 million-ish illegal immigrants just walked across the border? Wow. You have even the foggiest idea what a wall like he's talking about would cost to build, maintain, and man? It's insane. Even Trump figured out how bad his wall idea was. I'll just let him explain:

"I'm a great builder. What do I best in life, I build. Your infrastructure is crumbling. Isn't it nice to have a builder? A real builder. So you take precast plank. It comes 30 feet long, 40 feet long, 50 feet long. You see the highways where they can span 50, 60 feet, even longer than that, right? And do you a beautiful nice precast plank with beautiful everything. Just perfect. I want it to be so beautiful because maybe someday they'll call it The Trump Wall. Maybe. So I have to make sure it's beautiful, right? I'll be very proud of that wall. If they call at this The Trump Wall, it has to be beautiful. And you put that plank up and you dig your footings. And you put that plank up -- there's no ladder going over that. If they ever go up there, they're in trouble, because here's no way to get down. Maybe a rope."

You guys support this moron?

The hypocrisy in this thread and on this topic in general is sickening, to say the least.

Yes, yes it is. I now know I should not have taken the bait but I was trying to bring a bit of levity in here after it went off the rails early on but I was throwing fuel on a fire and the crazy train went full on Cayce Jones.

Finally, a few more level headed people with a filter. Thank you. Glad to see the pendulum swinging a bit more toward center here. It is just the internet and just Blue'sNews but still such a shame how some people here show their hate and throw crazy accusations about as if they are off their meds. Before early this morning I thought more of you were intelligent, well spoken, and understanding members here but this thread has shown several of you in a new different light.

Refusing to support someone who is actively funding the kind of hatred and divisive politics that Trump is, is a perfectly rational thing to do. He's free to say what he wants and contribute to whomever he wants. And others are free to decide that they don't want to support what he says and does by giving him money, since he's just giving it to a group like that.

Where's the problem?

I support Trump 110% and I also support the right of whoever chooses to support Clinton or Johnson or even Sanders 110%! We live in a free country--I have never seen so much hate and vitriol spewed during an election--it's disgusting. 95% of the people who hate Trump are responding not to anything Trump has said or done but to things people have willingly made up about the guy--he's never made a so-called racist-hate speech--not once! That's a pure lie.

From my view, it is 100% the anti-Trump people spewing the hate and the venom. Just like at Trump rallies it isn't Trump supporters friggin' destroying property and hurting people--it's the anti-Trump people--and in many cases people *paid* to incite riots! Soros should be under the jail--but unfortunately we live under a presently lawless administration--thank God that's about to change!

Any developer who would ostracize customers simply because he doesn't like their choice of presidential candidate is a fool. I don't intend to argue this. There is nothing to argue.
I seem to recall a Trump supporter punching a restrained protestor in the face, everybody cheering for him, and Trump offering to pay the legal fees of anyone who beat the crap out of a protestor. So don't get on your high horse while defending Trump. 100% my ass. You just see what you want to see.

Maybe if we didn't have such terrible candidates there wouldn't be as much incriminating stuff to leak? Now if only they would leak Trump's tax returns...

Sounds like the Second Life "flying penis" thing all over again.

How fun to start exploring and discover that someone has already named half the planets you can reach with obscene Beavis and Butthead friendly names.
There are 18 quintillion planets in the game. If 100M people named 100 planets per day for 1000 days your chances of finding a named planet are still .0001%. Unless the really screw up the starting location randomizer.

So what, exactly, is the point of a shared universe?

Trump's foreign policy plans are Putin's wet dream. It's not hard to see him trying to do things to please Putin, since he's been dying to get into Russia to build some godawful Trump building since at least the 90s.

Both parties in disarray is a positive thing for the Green Party.
Except as we saw from the DNC emails, the parties have the media doing their bidding. Seemed odd that with the two most disliked candidates in history, the media somehow manages to completely ignore the third party candidates while throwing billions of dollars in free airtime to the major party candidates. But the suspicions have been confirmed now. Both major parties have been lying their asses off and the media has been playing lap dog for them.

Honestly though, I can't really stomach a Trump presidency. The guy is such a crook. Between his Trump University scam and the fact that he brags about walking away from Atlantic City with a ton of money, after screwing over all the small businesses that built his casino, I just don't want to give him the opportunity to fuck over the whole country now. Bastard has been trying to cozy up to Russia for decades too. He'll have no qualms about screwing the US over if it means more money for him.

Oh yeah, and where are those tax records that he said every candidate should release?? More lies...

I watched the intro video on Steam for Rimworld a little while ago, but couldn't really figure out what was going on aside from some base building. Are there any particularly good videos out there that explain what the game actually offers?

Yeah not so much the article but what we do online being considered public.

Oh yes what we do online in publicly available areas, of course. It's a public network (of networks). But the ruling says home computers should have no expectation of privacy (even data on the hard drives) if the machine is connected to the Internet..?


Yeah, this ruling is ridiculous and needs to be overturned ASAP.

I have to agree with ventry, my company monitors hundreds of computers and not a single one of them has "automatically" updated itself without user interaction. Not all of them are on domains with GPO's blocking it either. I can absolutely find the event log entry where you clicked the button that allowed it to happen though.

Users are always wrong or lying or both. Always.

If it switched from Doom to some other window, hijacking my inputs, then that's absolutely Microsoft's fault.

This highlights exactly how (incorrectly) a user thinks windows works. You accepted and scheduled that upgrade long before you ever "ran DOOM" and that has absolutely nothing to do with it tabbing you out at the time.

There have been shady and misleading windows, but the existence of stupid users on the internet doesn't disprove the reasons why they are stupid.

No I didn't. In fact, I had specifically checked that possibility a couple days earlier after reading an article about how to do it. I write software for a living, I understand how it works. I had been denying Microsoft's attempts to upgrade my system for months.

There was no scheduled upgrade. The window forced Doom to minimize, and most likely accepted input intended for Doom, but since it happened so quickly, I had no chance to react or cancel it.

My girlfriend fell asleep while watching Netflix. She woke up and her laptop now had Windows 10. It wouldn't start though. It couldn't connect to wifi to complete the installation. The next day, I had to connect it with a cable in order to fix the issue. If you don't have a cable, you're shit out of luck. No more laptop for you.

I call bullshit.
Your "girlfriend" obviously was very sloppy with her mouse clicks and clicked the nag box instead of the 'X' in an attempt to close it thus accepting the upgrade.
The upgrade is scheduled for 3am unless changed by the user.
Result: Your "girlfriend" got updated while she slept.
Not to mention the final message box that appears the day before the upgrade to let the user know that the upgrade will take place the following morning.
I have no real love for Microsoft but, you are a hater.

So yeah, it's quite possible to get upgraded without actually doing anything.

For the last 3 months I have been doing an experiment. I have 8 machines set up in the back of my workshop. 4 laptops and 4 desktops.
All with varying CPU's, ram, etc. With a mix of Win 7 installs. (Basic, Home Prem, Pro and Ultimate) Mix of x86 and x64.
All conected to the net, all updated fully and set for "automatic update".
Each and every weekday i turn on these machines and each and every weekday I click the 'x' on the Win 10 nagbox when it appears.
103 days and counting there has been NO automatic updating to Win10.
That is 824 turn-ons and nagbox 'x' clicks. (<--- Whoops my bad. minus weekends)
I fully believe that this phenomenon is down to peoples sloppy mouse pointer use. (especially where laptop mouse pads are concerned).
i.e getting the nagbox rather than the 'x' to close it.
This also doesn't include the win7 machines I have for sale in the shop also connected to the net.

Don't see how that applies in my case. If it switched from Doom to some other window, hijacking my inputs, then that's absolutely Microsoft's fault.
