This i understand this far.

So now, i have this black hole that i can't see. I send an object toward it. From my perspective, time slows to a halt on the sent objective at the event horizon, so it looks like it never enters. So it actually stays visible, right? Over time, the black hole would look like a big ball of stuff frozen in time? What am i missing here?

For Non-Pro and Enterprise Machines: Set your connection to metered. Now you can control when your updates are downloaded and installed.
For Pro and Enterprise: There's a Regkey/GPO that enables the "classic" way of updating: either download, then ask to install, or notify of download and then download and install when the user wants. (I had to do this, because i have a small pipe and Windows10 insisted on downloading - and grabbing all bandwidth - stuff while i Netflixed)

Comment The Nintendo Partnership (Score 1) 151

Nintendo created some program, so that users can monetize ther LP's - AFTER Nintendo censored them of course.

Maybe this is a step to coax those players into this program, where Nintendo can silence all critics at will?

Or they just don't want the world to know that their Mario Games can be played through in mere minutes :D
(i know that's not true for all marios, but the older ones for sure)

I think that was mostly due to it being the first console shooter with a controlsystem that kinda works. Still no M/K by any means, but try something like Armored Core 1 or Disruptor on the PSX and see some REALLY atrocious control schemes (and those were GOOD games back then)

No problem is so formidable that you can't just walk away from it. -- C. Schulz
