You should read what valve had to say about integrating the rift, themselves. They discovered they couldn't just read the rift's state at input processing time. They had to do it once then, then again at render time, because 2 milliseconds made a huge difference. Code makes as much a difference as the system itself. TF2 still suffers from absurd running speed syndrome(the walking heavy moves about like you'd feel a jogging speed would be), and isn't a suggested first game for that reason.
Truckers, you're going to be the first on the chopping block in this edition of technology theater. That's the end of the last blue collar job that lets you travel.
You could say the same for buying/selling houses/cars/real estate/antiques/gold. Not a lawyer, but every conversation I've heard allows those things to be treated as investment items.
It's not what you know, it's who you know. I honestly think we'd be better off burning all the existing publishers to the ground and letting everyone re-compete for that space.
We actually have a document that is a checklist of grievances against the british crown, and it's more than 10 items long. It's called the declaration of independence.
If our constitution protected us against our government paying "indians" to attack us, it'd be kinda depressing.
Because to one extent or another, we're all at least a little culpable for the results of the actions we could've taken and didn't. I won't pretend I'm not part of a country that tortured people. What I'll do is remain vigilant, and never ever let anyone go without answering the question of torture again. It might not be the most I can do, but remembering that you can do something is important.
I think the SCOTUS gets a hard time, but you have to remember, they're not just debating the theory, they're also debating the law, as written, and the facts of the particular case. The fact that a lot of the time, the convictions are on real scumbags, or the letter of the law defines the constitutional interpretation of the situation, causes them to make rulings seem quite unfair a lot.
Scalia, though, is an irredeemable monster whose opinions, as written, are almost always dogmatic and awful.
Yes, I know that, see my other post in this discussion. 4+5+6+7+8+14, with any one of those missing, the potential abuse the government could engage in would render the rest essentially pointless.
Without 4, they could go on fishing expeditions unrelated to the known crime, to find a way to send you to jail, regardless of guilt. The protections of the rest would do no good.
Without 5, they could just force a confession. To jail with you.
Without 6, they could use legal arcana to convict you without you understanding it.
Without 7, they could just detain you forever, forget the trial
Without 8, they could threaten so severe a punishment for a conviction, that any sane person would take the plea bargin
Without 14, they could just let your state do any of the above, instead of the feds.
We could probably survive without #3 though.
I say "we", because I acknowledge that I am at least partially accountable for the actions of my government. I didn't support the politicians supporting the people doing it, but to pretend that denies culpability is insane. It takes more than cynicism and disagreement to stop abuse.
That's why we have a 6th amendment. If you're being interrogated, demand a lawyer present. Not everyone knows that they should, but that's why we have Miranda warnings.
If torture was constitutional, we'd do it to obtain confessions. No question in my mind. Now, whether a password counts as a confession is an academic argument of some value, but the fifth amendment itself is incredibly important.
People modding this troll are being unfair. As someone who likes the console, it needs more games. I played completely through every game I was interested in on it. And I'm a working stiff without a lot of time on his hands. I can't imagine how someone in college or high school would feel.
Okay, then who'll service the machine that services the machines?
And if it's a machine, who or what will service that machine?
And that machine?
I dunno, who treats your doctor? And your doctor's doctor?
I don't see the point. Amazon sells indie games. Steam sells indie games. Once amazon gets you to install steam, why would you use amazon for the next purchase?
Wishful thinking. No one ever went broke from underestimating the taste of the American public. I do hope xbox one is a massive failure. I don't really believe it, though.
