Overall though, if you ignore the name, and change your theme around to something a bit more pleasant, it's really pretty slick. If anything has a chance to get people adopt Linux for general usage, Ubuntu is it.
Either that or LinuxMint, which is effectively "Ubuntu with the ugly removed".
Kubuntu is a little bit prettier with it's KDE interface and still has the same polish, but I don't think anyone who is trying Linux for the first time would grab it over Ubuntu (as it's not that well advertised, I'm sure partially to not confuse first time users).
League of Legends rewards 45 minutes of farming, and then seeing whoever is the better Ashe player.
This reeks of a player who hasn't gotten into the higher brackets of LoL's ELO system and probably has tried a few low level games. At higher ELO levels (which essentially is the rating system that LoL's matchmaking system uses to ensure that matches are as even as possible), the gameplay becomes very competitive and most of the teams you fight are premade teams with voice comms and everything.
-This gives all heroes certain roles, it allows for different strategies that must be executed right or you will lose the game.
The thing about HoN is exactly what the parent said -- the strategies must be executed right or you will lose the game (which is a lot like DoTA). LoL on the other hand has a lot of different strategies and you can be flexible on how you play each character -- you can build a lot of tanks as DPS, you can build some support characters as tanks or DPS, etc. The metagame in LoL definitely helps that part out.
DoTA and HoN snowball much quicker than LoL games typically, and there's a completely different dynamic in the 5v5 matches and 3v3 matches in LoL.
Oh yeah, did I mention having a real community rather than one filled up with a bunch of ragers and elitists helps?
Because instead of a single person suing gamestop, you might have gamestop suing the video game publisher... which i'm sure is a legal fight they don't want to take on...
WoW CD Keys don't travel with the game...
Their passports have not been stolen, they still have the originals in their possession. The passports used for the assassination were counterfeits.
Actually, some of the involved passports were fraudulently obtained from their respective governments.
So your botnet on average only have links that go up to 100kbps? That's a pretty slow bot net.
Yeah, but behind what? How fast is fast enough? What are we trying to win? Frankly, I doubt that I'd ever make good use of 100Mbit myself, except in rare circumstances but maybe I'm outside of 'geek' norm (which is highly likely).
640kb ought to be enough for anybody...
From the article:
"First, we don't think the customer wants that. Secondly, if (Google has) invented some technology, we'd love to partner with them,"
Almost sounds like a troll to me. I think most consumers would love a 100Mbps connection -- assuming it was reasonably priced. That being said, Verizon already offers FiOS at speeds up to 50Mbps, so 100Mbps isn't that much of a stretch.
Sadly, I'm stuck in an area where it's either ADSL1.x or cable.
This is funny -- as its called "cheating" in the CS world, but in the EE world it's "working in a study group."
Of course, having impossibly hard EE homework at my university probably didn't help. It was not uncommon (and actually, quite frequent) that I encounter midterms/finals with average grades of 40% or less.
But that being said, most of the people who didn't learn the material didn't stay in the EE field after graduation.
Machines certainly can solve problems, store information, correlate, and play games -- but not with pleasure. -- Leo Rosten
