Using a password manager of any sort allows you to have long random passwords and not have to actually remember any of them, unless you secure access to them with another password. Considering the issues that have been highlighted where having multiple significant accounts tied to the same username & password, I would highly recommend everybody use some sort of a password manager besides a web browser password storage.
Using these predictive algorithms for player input & scene construction, would allow you to ship several scenes to each player, showing not only their immediate actions but the predicted actions of the other players. By predicting the actions of each player, the server could then more correctly account for those actions even when lag issues might have prevented the player from reacting the mob's attack quickly enough. As it stands right now, due to lag you might not even see the attack happen, even if it has a long cast/charge time, before you are hit with it.
I kinda want to see how they implement it so that I could play with it. Plus, I wonder if it could be applied to other branching activities.
Contrast that with the companies I worked early on(a telemarketer & a "small loan" company) and it's night & day. These 2 companies only wanted profit, at the cost of mistreatment of their customers & employees. The attitude was to treat everybody suspiciously, and employment metrics were based on how much money you made the company. I now find it funny to see the excuses they used to justify the "good" work they were engaged in.
This is why people like to shop at mom & pop stores, which usually cost more, than Wal-Mart. The owners of these small shops care more about their customers & making sure that they leave a good impression, than they do the immediate sale. Now this might not be for truly altruistic purposes, as mom & pop shops live and die by word of mouth, but that doesn't mean it isn't appreciated.
of the 621 people known to have come down with whooping cough in San Diego county, the vast majority (85 percent) were up to date on their immunizations.
Here's the problem with that statistic: If 90% of the people in San Diego county are up to date on their vaccinations, and the per capita of individuals was equal, then you'd end up with about 63 of the 621(or 90%) of whooping cough individuals as having their vaccinations. To truly see how well the whooping cough vaccination is working, you need to compare it to the percentage of total vaccinations. If the % is higher than the vaccinations total, you've got a problem, otherwise we can continue to blame un-vaccinated individuals as the problem.
In addition to what spire3661 said, I've not increased the amount of water I'm using because there aren't new ways to use it as there were when the pipes were installed. Even if I added a hot tub or a pool, that would only significantly increase my water usage 1x, then it would go back to levels near what I was at before.
The same cannot be said about our internet usage. New applications have continuously come out that have increased our appetite for data. When I 1st got on the internet, 56k dial up was more than adequate for anything available. Later when I started college, 1.5Mbps was far faster than anything available at the time, and so provided speeds that were generally unnecessary for all but pirating movies. Now, anything less than about 15Mbps won't cut it. And to get that, even in a large city, you are going to pay almost $100/month.
Source or your're a shill.
I'll take you up on that. How's a simple Google search as a citation? The ads are all for "organic pesticides". Followed by several articles & websites either offering advice in what can be used(one of which is to use tobacco water, which generally has the same effect as how this pesticide is used) or explaining how these methods are just as bad or worse than regular pesticides.
The thing I learned by going over several of the articles turned up by this search is that the difference between an "organic" farm & a non-organic one isn't that there are no pesticides or that they aren't a factory farm, but that they only use naturally occurring and often unregulated pesticides, frequently at much higher application levels. Even worse, is that some of the pesticides & pesticide methods have much the same effect as synthetic ones, mainly because the base compounds are related(like using tobacco water versus neonicotinoids, as both are based on nicotine-like chemicals). What I see is no different than homeopathic remedies vs traditional medicine.
But I would argue that criminals don't sit back and have a leisurely debate about the pros and cons of committing a crime that would engender capital punishment, prior to carrying it out. If anything such crimes are committed on a more emotional/spontaneous basis.
Yet criminals do factor in criminal punishments when they commit their crimes. If this were not the case, the murderers wouldn't try so hard to cover up what they did & wouldn't go to lengthy measures to make sure either their deed goes undiscovered or that they cannot be tied to it. We wouldn't have drug dealers running to non-extradition countries to avoid the penalties of their crimes. Gangs & other criminal organizations would enforce a code of silence on their members and those around them if they weren't worried about being caught.
I would argue that very little crime is spontaneous or emotional. Criminal spontaneity does not exist, as the crimes one is caught doing is usually only the tip of the iceberg of one's behavior. Look at it this way, how many speeding tickets are given out to people whose only time speeding was at that exact instant in which they were observed by a policeman? Isn't more likely that they had a habit of speeding & just happened to be caught that one time?
As for crimes being emotional, that's rarely the case either. The emotion most closely associated with crime would be anger, and yet how often are people angry but don't go out on an unplanned murderous rampage? Other crimes often happen with a lack of emotion. Or did you think Bernie Madoff felt anything besides greed when he ripped off all those people? Did Edwin Ramos of MS-13 have any feelings when he murdered a father & his 2 sons b/c they cut him off? And do you think this guy actually cared about the infant he raped & murdered?
