Comment Is it really that difficult? (Score 1) 1173

I live in England in a town that was designed and developed in the 1960s. The ENTIRE TOWN relies on roundabouts. It houses around 100,000 people and there's literally only 1 set of traffic lights in town and they're temporary and on a roundabout anyway. The traffic flow is fine and i've never seen a single accident on them. The nearest i've seen is someone break down on one, and due to the size of the area they broke down in they didn't hinder traffic anyway. It sounds strange to think of people struggling with the concept of roundabouts but I suppose it's tricky to imagine being new to the concept.

Comment Is this a bad thing? (Score 2) 231

I for one have never really seen the point behind spending thousands of (pounds/dollars) on a gaming pc capable of playing the latest games, only to be surpassed within a few months. As things currently stand, it's actually opening PC gaming to a far wider audience as the price of an adequate gaming rig is quite reasonable. Also, i'd rather have longer and better games than I would slightly better looking ones. And even still, games with modding support can often receive graphical boosts down the line anyway.

Comment FLAC is definitely a sound option (Score 2) 550

That's rather a good point. Personally i've always just used spotify free to stream my music but this has the fairly major disadvantage of only being 160kbps vorbis. I only own one album in FLAC form and have to admit you can hear the difference between it and some of my higher quality mp3 albums. The fact that it's an open format will help it be future proof as well. Win Win situation.
