Comment Honest question, forgive me for my ignorance... (Score 1) 1049

...but what exactly is wrong with AOL Mail today? I created an account with it and saw nothing really wrong. Admittedly, I chose AOL because it is a less important account, but the webmail interface is satisfactory, they do not add signatures at the end of the email and offer free IMAP support, something that even Yahoo doesn't do. If the subject was Hotmail I would understand, as they do not offer IMAP and their interface is simply awful. But AOL, from my experience, is a quite good alternative to Gmail.

I constantly lurk at the nvnews forums and download the official nvidia installers. From previous experiences I can say the following:

1) The installer not working with a new kernel version is a rare event. When it does happen, it's usually an indication that the kernel had major changes. It's not like changing two lines related to the audio stack will break the nvidia installers

2) nVidia is usually very explicit and clear about which kernel versions the driver will work with.

3) They are also usually very fast in releasing a new version. Usually only people who like to use the gushing-rivers-of-blood-edge kernel are affected.

Yes, Ray is claiming that all those people did it wrong and I have no idea if he's right. But he is giving a list of arguments to support his point.

So if you want to claim that he is wrong, you should show that those arguments are wrong.

So far, all you are saying is "a lot of judges and lawyers agreed on this, therefore the decision is correct", like there's never been a wrong judgement in the history of mankind.

The "new version" was a port of a port of the original version. Very welcome, yes, but not a 3D remake, which was what they shut down.

As for hope that there will be a sequel... The other major franchises always have some constant noise when it comes to new releases. The Chrono franchise had complete silence for more than ten years now. Ports don't really count.

Federal grants are offered for... research into the recreation potential of interplanetary space travel for the culturally disadvantaged.
