It works just fine, and took forever to come to market. Its on kick starter because not every good idea can get funding. Sounds like you are nay saying just to nay say.
damn you!!! I just said that else where.. But yeah. This imo is the best solution.
create limited user visitor account (not guest, just another user). Setup all the browsers to open in sandiebox. Done.
(assuming windows 7 and above)
This is an example of a dumb ass that has no idea what the fuck he is talking about. Period. If you personally stepped out of your mothers basement and looked outside of your own very narrow experience and focus you would never have said anything so fucken stupid. You do realize that gaming is main stream now, right? Its not the realm of nerds or children. Grandma plays angry birds. Heh, grandma might be able to kick your ass in Thrill Kill too. Your level of cluelessness could only be acceptable if this was 1992 and you took the short bus to school.
Way back when the we had an odyessy2 we started recording our games, then the Atari games, then lots of C64 stuff and Tecmo Bowl... In the 80s who watched this stuff? Pretty much all my family, and all my friends. Lots of the material made it into various 'trip tapes'. When the PSX came out we used to record our Soul Blade battles for a period of time, along with anything else we thought was cool. and now I use bandicam to record subspace and L4D2 mostly. Who watches the shit? Same audience. I'm slowly putting together a compilation of me getting accidentally set on fire and people thinking they are playing halo (walking in front of you while you are firing).
as far as the nerd thing or living with our parents... in the late 90s/early 2000s we had several machines set up in an apartment. Every day we'd all game there. Lots of counter strike. With our GIRLFRIENDS. We couldnt walk down the street without meeting someone we knew and exchanging pleasantries, making plans, etc... We often didnt have to pay for some of our drinks because everyone knew us and we really were the cool kids. we werent just gamers. We always had random locks and lock pick sets laying around for people to play with and learn lock picking. We had jobs in computers before it was cool. we smoked copious amounts of pot and played a game called drink pussy... point at someone and they have to drink. Lots of the group has went to the 4 corners, but we still game, and now involve the various children spawned over time. We've all been working 40+ work weeks for more than 20 years and we all still game.
Hey... because you are never going to play in the NFL does that mean you stopped playing football too? Lots of cash to be made recording games, but if you think cash is the only value you are really just a blind moron.
xorg.conf... Yup. I've even had to set it to ridiculously incorrect settings to make things work as they should.
I used the existing parts of my cube farm desk to create a standing desk. I simply moved the brackets up so that the desktop is high enough to use while standing.
A tall desk chair is important. I find myself alternating between sitting and standing.
Gawker is a stinking pile of shit; and its mods are the biggest piles of human shit. From the moronic mods who dont like when you point out their post on life hacker should have been sanity or fact checked to the dumb cunts at jezebell who think everything is either sexist or racist. I can only hope they all die in a car accident that involves a honey wagon. If there is any lack of 'intelligent' conversion or honest discussion its because of the mods. there. Their twisted and biased slant often does not reflect reality and the promote those who cheer lead their folly and censor/silence any detractors. Not to mention almost everything posted on the gawker network is of questionable worth to anyone to begin with.
Places like tom's hardware are good examples of forums that work for their communities and where intelligent conversations can be had. Slashdot not so much. The mod system just makes it so cheer leaders are heard and detractors are silenced by the majority. I often wonder how much crack cocaine it takes to keep the user forums here going, because I read some of the most retarded shit here.
While I agree the numbers seem low, its not because 'computers are scanned when they go online'. How many people these days connect their computer directly to the internet? Most machines are behind nat, which while not a complete security measure any any means, it does off protect for out side scanning.
Infections mostly come from browser based and download/execute attacks.
EA has done some really crappy things to gamers as of late, but sorry, this isnt one of them. If they are seriously going to release a redeux of Ultima IV it is one of the best things they have done for a long while. It will breath new life into one of the best games that has ever been produced. They have the advertising and promotion clout to bring this tale of greatness to a new generation... and one that I think is sorely in need of finding some kinda moral compass.
I wonder how Skittle the Skeleton has fared after all these years. A very close friend of mine passed away last friday. One of the only possessions of his I deemed of value was his Ultima IV Ankh, and thusly I snagged it to save it from the trash. It sat on his desk, under his monitor, for 25 years. (I lost mine at the beach in the 80s). This game was seriously important to many of my generation. Not only because of the great story, the morality, that demanded an emotional response, and left with something we would reference for the rest of our lives, But because Lord British was one of us. He was our age and way too in love with technology. Lets hope that EA's resurrection rises from the ashes like a phoenix.
Also... this is 2fuckenthousand11, why the fuck do I need to less than br greater than in order to carriage return? Seriously, that is just fucken stupid at this point.
