I'd been using uTorrent for about a year or 2 now but the past few weekso the downloads have been super slow, regardless of the number of seeders leechers, time of day, anything, that made sense. This might make sense. And how many Chinese and Russian women do I really need to date anyway? Thanks to all the suggestions, I'll uninstall and try qbittorrent on Monday.

I'm not sure what the difference is between these trackers and Kick@ss and TPB, or clicking on the little magnet as opposed to all the other options, but I hope somebody is monitoring the before and after effect of Time Warners upcoming HBO Go Solo or whatever they'll be calling the stand alone service. Should be interesting to see if anybody decides to pay for GoT. Of course I'm sure it will be US only so the rest of the world will still be getting GoT by any means necessary. Just hope it comes online before April 12.

Western Suffolk. Just spent over an hour shoveling over a foot of snow out of my driveway. The whiners can SHOVE IT, WE GOT OUR FREAKIN' BLIZZARD. A huge monstrous storm did exactly what they said, but it was 35 miles east of where they said. A storm that was probably over 300 miles long and 75 miles wide barely missed it's target. It was real, it happened, it's still happening in New England Tuesday afternoon. Landfall was a little off, that's it, not underwhelming, not a conspiracy, a little off the predicted model tract.

Been using Dolphin for 3 years on my Tab 2 and Tab 4, Chrome never worked right for me though it's my PC browser on desktop, latop and Netbook. Yes, I still use my Asus EEE on occasion. The new Dolphin home screen stays put as well, why does Google have to keep shuffling everything, are they big LMFAO fans?

Comment: Nintendo has never made a 1080p/60FPS game (Score 2) 338

"Many Nintendo games run in 1080p and 60 frames/second on the Wii U" What are these many you speak of? There's 1, Rayman, which BTW isn't even made by Nintendo, which is 1080p/60FPS on all the home consoles. Mario Kart 8 is 720p/59 output at 1080p. WW HD was Bayonetta 2 is 720p and SSB U isn't even out yet so who knows what it'll be. I played the Bayonetta 2 demo today and it looked freakin' awesome regardless.

So I can finally play Candy Crush on my PC ;-) Kidding aside, I wouldnt mind Angry Birds Epic on my PC, and wouldnt this make loads more money for companies like Gung Ho who were raking it in w/ Puzzle and Dragons and now can code once but have everyone with a PC spending money on their games? Seems like win-win to me, IF IF IF it works properly.

Comment: Stupid move, like buying Gamefreak in 1997 (Score 2) 368

Stupid Microsoft. Imagine if they tried to buy Gamefreak in 1996 after Pokemon Red and Green had already come out. What has Gamefreak done since 1996? Well besides Diamond and Pearl. And Ruby and Sapphire. And X and Y. And Black and White. Boy I would hate to have owned Gamefreak and the Pokemon license for 18 years. Who wants to keep track of all that money for 18 years?

Factorials were someone's attempt to make math LOOK exciting.
