Submission + - Star Citizen needs help getting off the ground (robertsspaceindustries.com)

Tolkien writes: From the page:

'The traditional publishers don’t believe in PC or Space Sims. Venture Capitalists only want to back mobile or social gaming startups.

I say they’re wrong. I say that there is a large audience of PC gamers that want sophisticated games built for their platform. And inside this audience, a significant group of people that have always loved space games, and if given a quality one again will be happy to play it.'

Comment Re:Umm Thats Microsoft (through Skype) (Score 1) 4

My money is on the following:

Microsoft renames Skype to Microsoft Windows Live Speech, Text and Image Communicator in 2015
Microsoft ends Linux support for the Skype client which won't have been updated in 4 years (2017)
Microsoft announces they're replacing the underlying codec technology of Windows Live with it (hopefully, because Microsoft's sucks by comparison) later that same year (2017).

Submission + - Can I record one channel while watching a different one using Videotron cable?

Tolkien writes: I've been thinking of building a PVR for a long while now but haven't begun because I'm stuck on one question.

The current situation is that I can't record one channel while watching another like I could with my old VCR years ago. I want this to be possible again without having to pay for two cable subscriptions, so given a standard cable box as source provided by Videotron (in Quebec, Canada), can I make this happen using a custom-built PVR? How can I go about doing that?

I'd love any tips or information this great community could provide, thanks!

I bought Splinter Cell: Conviction at Christmas on Steam with but hadn't installed it yet. Looks like it was a waste of my money. Unsurprising, I should have expected this. Of course they won't spend a dime to patch their games, fuck the community! It's the bottom dollar that matters, I mean really, it's not like the gaming community are the ones who will buy the games, right? I guess I'll have to download a crack to play it.
