Do the people who took the time to play through the game carefully and precisely to create such videos for people to learn from not deserve a bit of compensation for that time? You got your cut when the game was sold. Stop sniveling about the ads, it's the only means the people making these vids have of getting compensation for their time and effort. It's not the end of the world.
I think you misread the intent of OPs comment. Maybe I'm being naive/altruistic, but I took it as a sincere "good luck" because as even us Americans know, "'Murica! Fuck yeah!" Corporate interests will lobby hard to fight NZ doing this. I think it's great, and I hope it paves the way for other places to admit the ridiculousness of it and strike it down as well.
Why was this comment modded to -1? It's true. The company hires a competent designer to make shit using web standards, and the company passes the cost on to the customer, just like they do with anything else.
Christ, this place can be just like Reddit. "I don't like what you said so fuck you!" *downvote* *downvote* *downvote*
...we even still have this problem. Seriously, stop being short sighted fuckwits. Stop using vendor specific code. Start using shit that passes the W3C validator. Problem fucking solved. Imagine that! There is absolutely no excuse for any webpage out there to require a specific browser or browser version, short of being able to meet current web standards.
Why does this even need a warning? If you're too stupid not to understand to either A) not ingest these, or B) not give them to someone not old enough to know better, then by all means, swallow them all, then go get an MRI.
I agree whole-heartedly, and have for a long time.
I have not yet either. Site is down as well, displaying the JustHost suspended page now.
...23 or 24 I think. Got a Motorola SC3160 with Airtouch.
Couldn't have said it better myself.
...why not use something like a CNAME record for 911 here in the US and have it go to 112 and then we won't have to worry about it.
..."Meanwhile, ISPs like Time Warner aren't sure the demand exists for 1Gbps internet,"
At current costs? Of course not. People would *love* to have more speed. But not if it's going to cost $100+ a month to get it like TWC/Cox/Comcast/etc. would charge for it. They create their own stagnation with greed.
..."Because unfortunately, there is a still a strong perverse culture that equates staying at home when sick with weakness. This is a flawed belief and should be questioned."
It's because employers in the US (most of them) are slave driving assholes who don't care if you're sick, you get your ass to work and make your masters their money! Not many places offer sick days, and even if they do they'd rather you "tough it out" and come to work.
It's an incredibly ignorant POV but i don't see it changing anytime soon. Making more money is more important than your easily replaceable selfs health.
...I'm tired of various entities somehow being above the law and able to just say no whenever they want. The things they do are on the taxpayer dime. They are arms of the government, which is a servant of the people. In no way are they nor should they ever be above the law, period.
A small handful of the apps available actually explain this to you, which i thought was a nice touch. They actually go down the list of permissions required and say why it is they need them.
