Just an off-topic question - how did you manage to misspell one half of "bye bye"? That's quite an accomplishment.
I managed to play every single game I have available for Linux on my Wheezy desktop (around 20-30), all of them with satisfactory performance.
Yeah, just ask any stripper.
Some of the blackboxes are pretty cool, if you have the time to configure them for your needs. I ran BBLean for years at work and it was miles better than default explorer.exe.
Of course, I wouldn't recommend it to average user - you had to edit text files in order to configure it. The horror!
Oh, my apologies. I didn't realize statues have internet access and have discovered
Sometimes I think they're producing crap on purpose, and that "cultural sabotage" depicted in Rand's Fountainhead is already happening in America. Even the outcome seems to be the same as in the book - control of the masses brainwashed by "culture".
(Cue replies ridiculing me for being a Randian nut.)
Can't walk for 6 hours in age of 30? That's something quite abnormal, you should be able to pull that off if you're a normal, healthy 30-something.
Message received and decoded. Operation Pastry Badger is go.
So disable that effect. It is up to you to tweak the interface to your liking, not up to its creators to provide the software in millions slight variations, exactly as everyone and their dog wants it.
You probably do not remember all the outcry when people could not play their (single-player) game for days before servers were overloaded. In some country they even sued Blizzard that they purposefully deployed insufficient server capacity, or something like that. I wouldn't call that "pretty well".
Blizzard doesn't care what you do after the purchase, or whether you keep playing. They already have your money. If anything, many people stopping playing after first few days is better for them - less server load.
Yes, Diablo 3 was a roaring success - it made Blizard loads of money. I'd hazard a guess that this is big part of why EA dared to come up with similar scheme.
I have Firefox set to ask me about new domains trying to push cookies to me, and usually set all of them to "accept for session". That way, advertisers are happy, I am happy (since they pushed their cookies, and no content is denied to me), and when I close the browser, their precious cookies are gone and they can't use them to track me. I only fully accept cookies from sites I trust.
What I would like to see, however, is some sort of compartmentalization of cookie jars. Each site gets its own cookie jar, where all of the 3rd party cookies set when visiting the site go as well. When I go to another site, it gets another cookie jar, and 3rd parties can't see cookies set while on first site. Of course, some cookies could be allowed to be "shared". Does anyone know of something like this?
Meh, should have been "if they add a shadyads.interestingsite.com,".
www.interestingsite.com will only be able to get advertising money from ShadyAds company if they add a shadyads.interesting.com subdomain, and push ShadyAds cookies to users from that subdomain, making them 1st party cookies.
