What all this has shown me is how a lot of the major video game site journalists despise their audience. Just like the XBox One launch and backlash and the Mass Effect backlash the gaming press have never been on our side. Tht's what is truly sad about Gamergate.

Disclaimer: I don't work for them or get paid. But I bought connectify.me. They are a Windows client app that manages multiple connections and bridges them. It should hypothetically smooth your connection and reduce latency. For the VPN you'd need to find out the location of the server you're connecting to and have your end point be preferably in the same city.

Your statement is what scares me about this world. You're saying that all the money is the government's it's just a matter of if they choose to take it. In one situation the oil companies keep the money they earned. In the other, government distorts the market and chooses winners. They are completely different.

Because you don't know the difference between a tax credit and a subsidy. Oil companies receive tax credits that reduce the taxes they pay. They still pay taxes, just less. Solar receives subsidies. Companies receive cash dollars from the government for solar projects. That's why I oppose solar subsidies and not oil tax credits.

Wow, I have no idea what your opinion is on renewable energy and man-made global warming is but I completely agree with you. We're throwing so much energy into the ether because we have no reliable storage. Solar subsidies are evil. They distort market equilibrium and hurt the poor. DARPA and NASA can receive 100% of the solar subsidies and practically create a new Manhattan project for batteries. The below commenter also mentioned smart appliances. I agree. What if our appliances had these new super batteries, like Google's servers, and we never needed a big government subsidised corruption-fest that is financed on the poor?

That's great news!. Only six times the cost in land use and amount of units per megawatt to equal more efficient forms of power.

Geese, I just wish we weren't hosing the poor to afford this inefficient use if energy. Unless the plan is to have the poor subsidize the rich all along? Like electric car subsidies on half a million dollar cars?

Globally, solar can never equal more than 50%. Due to global warming, the sun is only available, on average, half the day. Gas, nuclear, and coal are obviously never fifty percent since the three complement each other. Anyway, no point to this point. Downvote me like you always do so I can spend the mid points promoting things I agree with.
