    The basic design hasn't changed since the 1700s, we feed coal into a furnace and boil water with it.

    Carbon sequestering helps (That's what "clean coal" is, we burn the coal, then bury the...

    LTE gets pretty good throughput (Many times faster than my home internet connection), of course the gap between 3G and 4G is still huge.

    Pretty sure they're all intermingled too, so while you can select a specific games maps to play, you can also play every map suited for Slayer regardless of what game it originally came from, etc.

    So how can you guys pre-load? Are EA doing regional locks on the pre-load times?

    Shouldn't be removing news bots just because they post news people don't like to hear.

    3 and ODST both ran at 1152x640, Reach ran at 1152x720.

    I'd love to see upgraded versions of ODST and Reach, but I doubt we'd see that for a while, MC is their main focus.

    So basically it's no different to the previous Sims games then?

    I can't pre-load it for another 3 days, what are you on Origin.

    The page encoding shouldn't matter, if the browser can't send them as raw UTF-8, it'll encode them as character references.

    A bigger issue is that a lot of sites have broken MySQL configurations,...

    Yeah, as the size increases the odds of an unrecoverable read error go up, which is why it's a bad idea to run a RAID5 with large disks (RAID6 has the exact same problem, just with a larger drive...

    Man these threads bring out awful qualities in people, they're just games people, she's not personally offending you for pointing out negative qualities in them.

    I had a bad experience with Seagate after losing 4 1TB drives within a single week, the first two died after 2 days of operations, the 2 replacements then died after the exact same amount of time....

    Similar to laws preventing teacher/student relationships (And the like), even if both parties are of legal age, it's to prevent coercion.

    It is a bit odd though, shouldn't have blanket laws like...

    What's the definition of a "SJW" though? Some people consider it to mean somebody who thinks every man is a rapist (etc.), while others just use it as a new term for feminists (Because people called...

    Chrome was still 32bit for mostly the same reasons Firefox was (They share the same crash reporter too, which only just got fixed to work in 64bit). The main reason there wasn't much of a push was...
  • Yeah, "You can't prove I did it" is different to...

    Yeah, "You can't prove I did it" is different to "I can prove I didn't do it". If an allegation is false and can be proven false then of course the person making the allegation should be punished.

    "Innocent until proven guilty" refers to a trial, if you're being investigated for something then you can certainly be restricted from doing certain things until the investigation is over.

    "Code-Bold" is the PostScript name, try "Code Bold" or "Code Bold Regular".

    Also, how did you convert it from OTF to TTF? Depending on how the font is authored it's either a simple rename, or you...

    I wonder if this is going to start another scare, a few years ago the media randomly started reporting every "large" earthquake that happened and people thought the world was ending.

    What is hyperbole?

    Are there other things making you this upset, or are you really claiming that a single person apparently cheating on her boyfriend is corrupting an entire industry?

    Would it really benefit KSP much? A fair bit of their physics simulation is hand rolled and wouldn't change with a newer engine, it'd be mainly access to the better shaders.

    I didn't realise that The Sims had transferred back to Maxis, I thought they were still being developed by "The Sims Studio", considering how badly Maxis mangled Sim City (Including outright lying...

    Wouldn't surprise me if consoles couldn't handle it, I doubt my PC could handle it either.

    Yeah, who cares what type of device the game is being played on, it's that it's a game that matters.

    Is GTA on a tablet "less of a game" than GTA on a PSP? Is Tetris on a phone less of a game than...

    Interestingly, MS have actually supported a method of making resolution independent UIs since Windows 95. It's just that because nobody could really test it, applications written using that method...

    How Windows handles DPI scaling is fine (Although the percentage scale factor makes no sense), it's mostly apps not taking advantage of it that's the problem.

    Biggest issue is that devs can't...

    Doesn't mean it's incorrect though, just that it doesn't fully explain it.

    If the new research is correct, then it goes explains other slowdowns in heating, and predicts future ones.

    We'll never change our flag, we're too lazy to replace the existing ones.

    For newer hardware there can be issues, but otherwise it's usually better.

    Neither does Windows actually, and you don't need to install apps through the terminal at all.
  • NAT for IPv6 is pretty much a side effect of the...

    NAT for IPv6 is pretty much a side effect of the NAT rules being fairly protocol agnostic, so implementing it for both makes the code more robust (But yeah, shouldn't ever be using it)

    We do have...
  • Not having to deal with a NAT is great, problem...

    Not having to deal with a NAT is great, problem is that you've still got the firewall in place blocking connections, and the automatic port forwarding situation there sucks (If I want to open a port...

    It wouldn't cause lag, and the only reason people are talking about IPv6 is because it uses less memory in routers, and the hardware to support it should be newer and better designed. The biggest...

    Only because they're comparatively smaller and simpler, less code makes for less possible mistakes.

    One thing Spore did that I liked was the user content system, surprised Sims never got that. Instead of having story progression just generate random Sims they could pull them off the user gallery,...

    Only if they're 64bit binaries, 32bit binaries with the LAA flag are still limited to 4GB.

    As long as they're targeting XP it's going to be 32bit, I'm not sure if Origin even supports sending...

    It's the worst justification they could have used, say how they're trying to rehabilitate him, help him make amends for what he did, etc. not just "Well it's not illegal!"

    There's no real difference between a self signed cert and a expensive cert, it just comes down to "trust". The browsers trust the CAs to only give certs to people who say they are, and the CA trusts...

    I'm pretty sure the navmesh stuff used in CS/L4D/TF2 can do that too but it's either automatic or can be set via the in-game node editor.
