Those are indeed games with a good free2play model (you can only buy cosmetic items with no gameplay benefits), but they also aren't really the best example of how money can be made with f2p. The games you mentioned are made by Valve, and are also used as a way to popularize Steam itself. I know a couple of (hardcore) games who signed up for steam just to get Dota2, and that's a demographic you really want to attract.
Well at first I thought it would be discrimination to say that certain "casual" games aren't games, but then I realized that technically my mother plays video games for 10+ years now (solitaire type games), and I would never have considered her a gamer - so those figures are really meaningless.
I really doubt there are 50% female gamers in most games being played as e-sports, even 10% seems optimistic.
Wikipedia is about facts, and shouldn't be used as your PR/marketing platform.
This is good.
Nah, it AGPL is pretty much GPL as intended for web services.
Also PvE was extremely disappointing, because as they broke the "holy trinity" (healer/tank/dps), most of the content was trivial, and the stuff that wasn't eventually got nerfed so everyone could do it.
There weren't any real raids either.
Fortran is, for better or worse, the only major language out there specifically designed for scientific numerical computing.
What about Matlab/Octave?
The context in which you say this is really important.
I think he meant that people shouldn't expect privacy from many Web services as it is, which is a good advice!
This comment contains more information than the article.
I don't know about SAS, but Octave is a much better alternative to Matlab if money is your main issue.
Hell even scilab or python's numpy are more similar.
On the other hand I'd probably at least check those who have achieved things of worth.
I'd also probably check on them based on context: imagine if you would have a full picture of what your ancestors were doing in WW2, WW1, or whatever other local event that's interesting to you that happened in the 20th, 19th, and even 18th century.
It would also be interesting to see where your ancestors are from, how they moved in the world, etc.
This isn't about your daily car usage, it's a test to verify the car's range, and failing to do all three should have one marked as an idiot (or malicious).
In the actual interview, Elon Musk mentioned the NY Times reporter failed the following three things:
1) Didn't have a full battery
2) He took detours
3) He went above the speed limit
And gee surprise, your battery ran.
This doesn't suggest github took anything down on purpose: https://status.github.com/messages.
Seems to me they were just experiencing some technical difficulties from all the people sharing those search links and having a laugh at the stupids...
I skimmed over the github site and didn't find anything that would suggest otherwise at least.
Of course I didn't read the articles because they seem badly misinformed and confuse private keys with passwords.
Why would they have their accounts suspended? It's their right to share that.. even if it's pretty stupid.
I assume search will be back eventually, it's probably just a temporary measure until they implement ways to inform the users of a potential common* misstep.
*It really is common when you see hundreds~thousands of
Mod parent up.
You don't have and shouldn't deal with package managers or system libraries, of which libraries are a huge problem if you want to have online play.
Have none of the people here tried HON or any other commercial* linux game? They aren't installed with a package manager.
*Some open source online game/engine projects (springrts f.e) are also going to switch to statically linked binaries for linux (windows always had that obviously). It makes releasing new versions for linux much simpler once set-up initially, you just need to have a distribution mechanism which most large projects have, commercial ones definitely do.
But anyhow, WoW is not a problem, at least that used to work really well 6~ years ago since I last played it (and I doubt it took a turn for the worse). It seems like Valve (and Google with Android!) is really doing a good thing for Linux gaming, I wouldn't be surprised to see most new (and probably no old) opengl games released after 2014-2015 ported to Linux.
