Comment: Simple solution:do not buy the game until you know (Score 1) 473

Know as in know if there are too many new game problems, like the activation problems, crashes, DRM issues and whatever.

I personally wait until the game has been on the market for a while until buying them, that way I have a better understanding of what I am buying. (and often they also have come down in price as a bonus)

if you had read the original text including "and the second is that 64-bit Firefox is finally coming to Windows" you might have gotten the context.

Firefox is not available on Windows as 64 bit except as nighty build of questionable stability. Waterfox is a stable 64bit Firefox based browser for Windows.

It is too bad that chrome is unusable due to the multi process architecture causing so much overhead.

I tried opening all the windows and tabs I have open in waterfox at 4.5 gigs used memory for fun in chrome and had to stop when the total memory use went over 50 gigs as everything was kind of slow at that point...

So I am hoping that same problem will not happen in firefox 64 bit when it comes out.

It really depends on who you target your product to if public bug database is a good or bad thing.

If you target people like developers they are more likely to view a public list as a very good thing and you will likely get more positive reaction than if you do not have such. If you target other types of people, then indeed public bug list will scare away potential customers way too often due to lack of understanding to be a good thing.

As you are in ERP I would say hide it is more likely harmful than beneficial. So, yes I would say make it nonpublic in general.

But as it is a good thing to help developers I would keep it visible to resellers and to any customer who wants to see it (maybe make a simple customer portal where they can log in and access it)

Very true. Most of the new high level content is kind of "bleh" and there is no end game in DDO currently.

But most of the earlier, lower level adventures are a blast of fun. Also there is some hope, as the newest update had a high level quest "Study in Sable" that is definitely a classic D&D adventure.

The character customization options in terms of the different builds are amazing. (13 classes, where you can mix and match up to 3 of them, 8+4 races with racial abilities, 21 skills, 2-4 enchantment trees/class+1/race, dozens and dozens of feats to chose from..)

To add to the fun they have a Reincarnation system where you can after running through the fun parts of the game (reaching level 20), you can "Recycle" your character and start again at level 1, with (slightly) more power. And for those of us who are addicted, that process can be repeated again and again, each time gaining bit more power.

The growing number of places you need a password on just to access some content is a sure cause for increased password reuse.

Humans are simply not suited to remembering random enough password to cover all the sites on internet.

The save password option on the browser might help...

but more and more sites use the "no not save passwords" option.. forcing people back to reusing passwords.

Well, personally I just use fairly random passwords and "rememberpass" extension on firefox to force saving password even when the site does not want you to do that.. as the lesser of the evils.

If corporations want the rights, they should also have the responsibilities.

So if an employee is killed through negligence for example the corporation would have everything they own held (as in all factories stopped from producing and such) for the duration of the prison sentence that a natural person would get for the same thing....

The same thing for any other crime that a corporation does. If they do not want that then they should not have the rights either.

+ - Proposed law to curb copyright enforcement excesses gets a good start in Finland->

Submitted by luvirini
luvirini (753157) writes "There is a push in Finland to get a citizens law proposal to curb copyright enforcement excesses to be a law. There exists a fairly new mechanism where citizens can directly propose laws if enough voters give their support to that proposal. The proposals then go to the Parliament for voting as any normal law proposal from the government. The proposal has been up for slightly more than two weeks and has almost third of the needed support, so seems to be on good way as the time limit to gather enough support is six months. You can read the google translation of the proposal in here and if you are a Finnish voter you can support it on the Justice Ministry's pages"
