They should run a promo for 2-3 years that lets game developers collect 90-100% of Linux ports/new games' profits on Steam sales. It may get the ball rolling and move the culture forward to commonplace .
as to the real reasons because of settling out of court? The name, along with selling a product that has round corners when sliced, makes me wonder.
"It was just an instrument malfunction, but stay tuned for further crazy and Earth-shattering announcements after these brief messages!" or "Mom I'm going to Stanford!" "Really?" "Yes! I mailed the application yesterday."
All I need is a game-centric distro (Valvux?) and Adobe to jump in with CS6 for the platform, and I am all set for work and play. I would love for them to eventually render iSores and M$ screensmudgers 8 useless to my demographic.
I am by no means special as there are likely hundreds of thousands like me. I started out young, labeled as "gifted", and put through special school programs. I have a very high IQ, and have the ability to create extremely intricate CAD-like images of any thing I can dream up, transpose and create into real working hardware. I learn new languages and programming languages with virtually no effort, and I am amazed at my own abilities sometimes. Other times ashamed. The price has been trips to the mental hospital with a severe bi-polar diagnoses and extreme depression, where I cannot even function as a normal human being some days. I love who I am and wouldn't want to be anyone else, but I understand that my brain is all on or all off, and that is the gift and the curse.
NOPE. Some excerpts from YOUR link... "One might expect that the origins of the sign would also be known for certain particularly when the origin of the British pound sign, £, which is far older, is well-established. However that is not the case with regard to the dollar." "There is another version of the theory linking the sign to the Spanish peso. As mentioned earlier the peso was subdivided into eight reals, hence the name piece of eight.The 8 with two strokes became a letter S with two strokes since S looks like an 8 that has been split, as when a peso was broken to provide change in reals. Eventually a further simplification was introduced by dropping one of the strokes." Read YFA.
The dollar sign is thought to be a slash through an eight representing 'pieces of eight', an older Spanish currency denomination, but everyone still knows what $ means. Icons that everyone is used to and that can be recognized as to their function should be left alone, for efficiency and a nice little piece of nostalgia.
RockYou did the best they could by using double ROT13 encryption of these files. So sad to see them get fined.
and that is not the big issue, as getting off the ground is always the big expense, but we all know that. This tech can be useful in reducing weight costs for sub orbital payloads though, and probably resembles the design of a DS4G engine. The problem with efficiency in the past is that motors required high voltages to accelerate the ions that collided with the electric field grids. DS4G used a two stage four line grid with the top grid closely spaced and of higher voltage, with an open spaced lower voltage bottom grid. These differences between these stages allow higher velocity without ion grid collision at overall lower voltages resulting in 4x the fuel efficiency of previous engines.
when I can just push my grocery cart through a halo and slide my card.
I HAVE A BIG BLACK CLOCK and it could be the font too.
Help! Help! I'm being repressed!
... bloody Romans.
I was interested in this board and out of the several reviews on Newegg, several RMA and DOA stories. Too bad, I like the all black and all the pci-e and usb 3.0 slots.
It it is imho a basic human right to compute, now a lot more people can.
