I went off Panasonic a few years back because they had the temerity to stop honouring warranties if you used non-OEM batteries in your camera instead of building rectifiers into the power system of the camera.
Just to let you know, sometimes we record these calls for training purposes
Maybe someone doesn't like your tip and has put a stop to it.
- I could actually care less if I really tried.
This small addendum makes my stress levels lower.
Stupid people are taking over the world; me getting het up about their poor grammar seems likely to make me one of them.
Slashdot: Er, this isn't shiny, it's shit with sugar on.
WFM on VM.
It isn't even his name in his URL? How the hell do I find him?
http://www.antipope.org/charlie/ Doesn't look legit to me.
Oh fuck it. I'll look for him on Amazon.
This is why a central repository is needed. Just not one that has huge profits at the core of its existence.
Gutenberg should have a sales side. Very easy to take the price tag off the books after Disney's lifetime + 1,000 years, which is the US copyright length at the moment, I believe.
Might improve their crappy website at the same time. I love their ideals, but the site is hideous.
I downloaded a crapload of them, he's really good.
Am I making it harder or easier for him to make a living?
I read your statements with the emphasis on "Speaking for all us old fogies," which as an ale drinking Yorkshireman who grew out of all the young people crap many years ago I thought included me, so I did feel you made a blanket statement. I've been left behind by a lot of gaming culture. I've never played WoW, Minecraft, Eve, Bioshock, Crysis
Forgive my interpretation of your words, I did want to take it as a blanket statement because that means I can disagree with the whole, which helped me make my point in an easier way, to my mind.
This is an inexact medium for the transmission of ideas. I'm glad of your reply and the opportunity to rebut in a civil manner.
I've not had the chance to use VR, but I'm very much looking forward to it. "Immersive" is something I struggle with; whether it be games or films. I envy people who can step out of themselves and get giddy/emotional by looking at a screen.
+1 Internets for a Mythbusters name drop though, well played.
I'm 40 this year and I played the hell out of Descent and Terminal Velocity for the sheer pleasure of using the full 3D experience.
I downloaded the Rebirth version of Descent after reading half his article, and I've played it for quite some time. My reflexes are OK, my brain isn't hurting and I'm WISHING that many of today's games could venture into the 3rd dimension.
I play Star Trek Online and I couldn't begin to tell you how much better it would be (for me, I dunno about these kids who can't fly) if I could actually have the ability to loop the loop in battles. The way they've done it sucks so hard after knowing how to barrel roll and loop.
