Comment: Recruiter Bait. (Score 2) 163 163

This sounds like the garbage that any military recruiter will spew to entice you to sign up. "Oooh! You're really good! We need your hawt leetness! What? You didn't get a position in the Scout SV playing real life video games. Eat it soldier, you'll serve where you're told."

Comment: Truth In Advertising (Score 1) 185 185

You could do this completely dick move, but be sure never to describe what you are offering as internet service, nor be deceptive when advertising so as to make tenants think you are providing internet service. It would be akin to advertising free cable when the only channels on that "cable" are CCTV of your board of directors masturbating over the idea of "mad profitz".

Just as our minds are not points of awareness but collections of such, any AI will have processes that evaluate information at differing timescales. Moreover, the consciousness of an AI will be at whatever timescale the AI most commonly needs to interact at to thrive. All other processes will be subordinate, whether faster or slower.

Comment: Might and Magic X (Score 1) 669 669

Just finished Might and Magic X: Legacy last night, then I tried Blackguards and the program locked up during the intro movie. I was not able to close it or even reboot my computer, so I won't be trying that again til after a patch. Today I tried Jazzpunk and it was mildly amusing... not as funny as I had hoped. I think I am likely to fire up BF4 now that Second Assault has been released.

Aren't you glad you're not getting all the government you pay for now?
