"...Want to know how many times on average a part of LoF.exe code gets thrown back and forth between HDD and RAM in an hour? 150,000 copy and write cycles. That's 10,000 times more than usual. The DRM constantly decrypts the game code into the RAM and then encrypts it back. This is one of the most idiotic uses of encruption I've ever seen. Despite the code parts being small, max. a couple of KBs at a time, they are stored in one memory block. In 4 to 8 hours of playing, depending on the quality of the SSD, you can kiss this block goodbye."
With the right software, you can check these findings and assess if the threat is real. I don't really have the knowledge, but I would install this game on HDD just in case."

They did remove Google from the list, but they have a more or less discoverable way to add it. I think this is asshole-ish, but I rather like Mint in other respects, so this wasn't a big thing to me.
I would love the actual statistics of accidents and incidents involving Uber to be researched during the court hearings. Somehow I feel that it won't be significantly (or at all) worse than with licensed taxi drivers and companies. Of course, whatever the stats are, they have nothing to do with whether or not Uber breaks the law, but they can be used to judge if the regulation in its current form is necessary in the first place.
Cars are tangible, software is not. That is the difference. Unlike cars, it doesn't cost Microsoft anything to produce a copy of older software for download without support obligations. They don't even have to host itâ"there's Bittorrent for that. The vendor shouldn't be able to artificially restrict your access to older worksâ"it's the overreaching copyright law that should be restricted, and the restriction I'm offering is very mild and friendly to copyright owners.
One should be legally able to downgrade any version of the software he/she legally acquired. Without support obligations, of course. This will make the software market crippled by overly broad copyright laws much healthier.
While not really being a grammar Nazi, I just couldn't help it. And, well, I do think you may have a point here.
Oh, I see, some positive person has done a poor job at your grammar.
Yeah, because direct Tesla sales would seriously hurt people. We even know who those people are.
Beat me to it.
I live in Russia. Personally, I welcome this new technology, but if it works as advertized, Apple can kiss goodbye to Russian market, because there is no way this is going to be certified in Russia. By Russian regulations, built-in crypto tools must meet certain requirements (effectively meaning the ability to decrypt the data).
Yes, like the vast majority of smart phone users.
I see what you did there.
Netflix collects money from Argentinians and pays zero taxes in Argentina.
Netflix shouldn't pay taxes in Argentina. Argentinians and Argentinian businesses should pay taxes for the money they earn. Netflix is neither. They don't you and your country anything, taxing them is pure theft.
BTW, I would like to apologize for my previous reply. It was rude and inappropriate. Some of us, including me, are too agitated by the ongoing war.
I just wanted to say that censorship is not the solution.
No, but holding an opposing political view is now, apparently, a solid ground for a complaint leading for Facebook post removal.
