Re: Off-topic (was Battlezone 3 RANT)

ALL religions based on a unfalsifiable entity is simply wishful thinking and is the central tenet of the world's current problems. To add insult to injury, one of the more popular books used to justify such an entity is so chock full of sanctioned brutality and contradictions, that balancing an anti...

Re: Star-Citizen

Yea, the RSI site loads fine for me both with chrome and firefox.

Although, it loads a running video on the home page, so that may be something to do with your issue.

Re: Star-Citizen

I'm 99% confident it's not a scam, or a "it'll be done when it's done" mess since Arena Commander 1.0 is now released. Plus the dozens of videos such as the 'Around the Verse' (Q&A) and the '10 for the Chairman' (Q&A) to Chris Roberts, 'Meet the Devs' series. It is by far the most transparent develo...

Re: Star-Citizen

I agree, so I'm holding back. And it's a real conundrum. The longer I hold back, the more rare the "deals" and opportunities. Such as in lifetime insurance on the basic chassis of a particular ship, stretch goal "sales" on ships, limited time offers, one time only designs, etc. Plus the game does lo...

Re: Star-Citizen

The more I see of this game the more it appears to be the most ambitious MMO/single player game ever created. It looks awesome. It uses a heavily modified version of Cry-engine 3. Chris Roberts, the guy who created Wing Commander back in the early 90's, is heading the development. He initially asked...

Re: Swatting

Very common in the US to fine the parents for their children's vandalism or property damage.

Of course I suppose you could be "smart" and pass off the damages to the taxpayer. . . :roll:

Re: Swatting

Charge the child. . .or the parents, the cost of the raid, (probably around 5-8K) and give the kid 6 months in a juvie center, or 6 months in county lockup if an adult. That might help curb the trend.

Multirotors are coming into their own. Along with that comes having to play nice with society.

Re: SSDs and write endurance

Not wanting to evoke Murphy (of Murphy's Law) or SOD, I think nobody should talk about hardware that has not gone wrong... :lol: So true. And that's serendipitously appropriate here since I still use 98se to play BZE, because my of love for the Logitech Interceptor that can only be fully programmed...

Re: A few problems and questions about 1.5

Yeow. I agree with spork about something. The logic above is one of the reasons I gave up on this forum many months ago. (I was told to look, that I would get a laugh) The irony is NO ONE CARES about these ancient games. If anyone did, there would be people actually playing them. Wait, on yes, an ul...

Re: Interesting Article Thread v.2

In the US, and not a response team (swat or similar), an officer caught in an escalating situation, is trained for 'center-of mass'.

The average LEO in the US is not permitted to get inventive when discharging his weapon.

Re: Real-Time Google Earth? Give me 5 years.

Well. . .things have changed a lot in the last four months.

Legislation to ban FPV is intensifying because of it's 'evil' cousin, the "Deadly Drone". Like gun control, I'm thankful my state is not overreacting.
