And giant amounts of TV ads.

 

E2:  Watched video... this crap is how the industry lost me as a customer.

 

E:  Looked up the goons thing -- he should have just told them to leave and called the cops.

Yup, and when a game doesn't sell well, they fire the devs while the CEO's keep their high salaries and millions bonus payouts.

 

Yeah, in hindsight, he should have done that but at the time I guess it is hard to make that sort of decision considering the person may not have the experience to handle such a situation.

 

But yeah, it makes me happy that I have never played any of the Borderland games and have no interest in playing the third one.

Well, apparently US Forces have killed Hamza bin Laden, Osama's son.  I wonder how long it'll take the President to spin it into "I killed Bin Laden" or "He was many times worse than Osama.  Believe me."  Anyone want to hazard a guess?

Welp, Beta O'Riurke stepped in it at the latest debate.  

"Hell yes we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47...."

That's going to get played and quoted in every gun control debate for decades, every time proponents say that confiscation isn't the end goal.

How much telemetry does gearbox need that it has to send 1.5mb up.

 

In other news Windows updates are really fun and I especially like the part were it chokes my disk for several hours while installing.

Smooth.  Maybe we can ship him to New Zealand.

Windows 10?  Some of those aren't just updates, but fundamental patches, the sort of thing MS can spam with "software as service" and forced install.

 

As for telemetry... they don't NEED any, no company needs it.

Even worse, he is encouraging big tech/monopolies such as credit card companies to refuse service to gun sellers and manufacturers.

So, two major Saudi Arabian oil processing facilities were hit by a drone attack.  The Houthi are claiming responsibility.  Evidently the attack has caused Saudi Arabia to cut back its oil output by half.

It's so beautiful that our little Avalon wants to build the P40 dynamo. I still remember my first P40. It was during a volcano on Vesuvius and Chef BoyarDee  just graduated from ravioli school. All of Mario world gathered to watch him get his diploma.

You may not understand the appeal of model making, but the paint scheme one selects for his or her miniatures is effectively a sacredly guarded element of personal expression. You never tell people how to paint their minis unsolicited. Get your own damn kit and paint it how you want to see it yourself.

Like LSR has the patience to put together a model.  He's too busy looking for lurks to maintain his fragile ego to do something useful with his life.

He should.  Avalon should build a P40, cover it with anime stickers, then send it to governor Schwarzenegger to crush under his M47's tracks.

I am not. In fact I am not currently building anything. I am considering the Tamiya Mk. 5 though... Im just hung up on the having to paint it nonsense...

That would be a waste of anime stickers...
