I am curious how they intend on dealing with all the "lost" bitcoin if they only ever intend on "making" 21 million btc. If the feds just decided to up and delete the drive, how will anyone know?
well the government doesn't have to make money
You must not live in the same US that I live in. I've worked with city police and I constantly heard about decisions between buying a new patrol car or hiring another officer. I know many departments that would love to have more money to spend on people/tools.
Given how little we know about Landmark's details, I'm a little leery of dedicating too much time to it. The building part of Minecraft is the least of the enjoyment I get out of it. What I have fun doing is funnelling mobs into death chambers, creating automated farms, complex piston contraptions, hopper and redstone circuits. If Minecraft was just a game of building large static structures... I definitely wouldn't put as much time into it.
With the size of the voxels, it would make it hard to do rails I imagine and I'm having a hard time imagining how they would implement pistons (or something of the like to move voxels around without players in "edit mode"). With the confined "building plots", I think it's going to be hard to do large scale mining operations or get into machinery like some of the mods add.
They also said they want to allow people to build Sci-Fi environments, but without some way to program the voxels or some kind of complex mechanisms... it's only going to be people making non-functioning ship husks and getting bored.
Most new players focus intently on making a high damage build, choosing high damage classes as main preference
I have to blame part of this on the design of games coming out. It seems like any meaningful crowd control, healing, and utility classes are being sidelined for DPS. Even with Guildwars, the mobs all die so fast that DoTs, heals and other utility are pointless.
... Webforms... blech. "Just wrap it in an update panel!"
Because of the import tax, it's cheaper for some to fly to the US, buy a device and fly back. I say just spend a night in a local hotel and use their Internet (or an open WiFi) to update the device!

I take it you've never been on XBox Live... I know you said you've been a PlayStation person all these years, but if you've ever been over at a friend's house while they are on a multiplayer game, it can be quite horrific.
I can't figure out why it doesn't just move all object as far as possible from humans, yet in the straightest line if possible. Heat map or not. Just don't go waving hammers, forks, feathers, milk, chips, or anything near a human if you don't intend on using that item on them.
if we loose our humanity
If we loose our humanity, it won't matter.
So... call up Safelite and they send a guy out to inject some goop in the glass?
My 2004 RX8 was 145-148 'ish. The 2008 MX5 was something like 140. I'm sure it depends on the car. I haven't had the location or space to see what my Audi S4 will do, but at 135 or so the slightest rise in the track becomes a bit scary... but I consider it more of a "luxury" than a "sports" car.
My Audi S4 seems to be able to translate what impact my AC has on fuel. It gives a little graph stating how many gallons per hour it's using. I'm sure if the Tesla S has the appropriate sensors a nice little info screen must be hiding around somewhere.
I'd love it. It'd be one step close to recognizing that people are all capable of different things and setting a blanket rule of "this is how fast you can drive" is not always applicable.
