Thanks for the reference I'll have to take a look at the book.

The wars on abstracts (drugs, crime, terror) has made our society more violent and less safe.

Violent crime has been dropping for several decades any way you slice it, America is at 1970s levels. What metrics are you using to that show an increase in violence? Even between 2013 and 2012 there's been a decrease.

There's a restaurant called Umami Burger. They have amazing burgers, arguably the best I've had, the truffle burger made with wagyu beef (if you eat beef) I'd highly recommend starting with. The burgers are a bit pricey so it's more of a once in awhile place. Hopefully there's a location near you, it's really good.

AMD spends more time fixing nvidia sabotage than anything else. If nvidia would actually fight fair they likely wouldn't stand a damn chance. Hell nvidia became #1 by cheating benchmarks...how quickly everyone forgets.

AMD sabotages themselves more than anything with their drivers. It's not new.

This was my understanding, sorta like a promise, but then I looked up the definition:

a formal promise or assurance (typically in writing) that certain conditions will be fulfilled, especially that a product will be repaired or replaced if not of a specified quality and durability.

I'm just wondering how the game is so badly broken for people attempting to run it on an x86 with AMD drivers and Microsoft APIs,

I'm no apologist (I didn't buy this game) take a look at the Steam hardware survey Notice the processor speeds, resolution and especially the graphics chipsets. Quite a variety there and not to mention AMD is infamous for crap drivers. I'd be curious to know what the factors are, management setting a firm deadline, the port developers etc. The game industry is known to be pretty ruthless.

Evidently I didn't link to the store page, here it is: http://store.steampowered.com/...

"Batman: Arkham Knight will be available on SteamOS, Linux and Mac in Fall 2015."
Sales of Batman: Arkham Knight have been temporarily suspended while Warner Brothers works to address performance issues.

Guaranteed to work my ass.

Remind me, which consoles let you do that?

Fuck consoles.

What you have claimed is not true at all. Arkham Knight was not pulled from Steam - anybody who was unhappy with the crap they released could get their money back. No questions asked.

Show me where you can buy it on Steam? I linked to the store page, if you look at that page you'll notice you can't buy it until Fall 2015. What's that called when something is released and then unable to be purchased?

Many people write memos to tell you they have nothing to say.
