@ AC

Umm how about autokicking anybody with ping above 100 I love having a ping of around 16 on servers i pick.

Give us back server browsers and allow us to make our own choices, not this shitty join random game with random people in random location on the earth.

Not saying take it out, but dont force it as the only option !

The agony and ecstasy of SteamOS: WHERE ARE MY GAMES?

Lionel Baden
Bronze badge

Re: No thanks

Didnt pay a penny to the steam sales this year.

Steam is getting overrun, by shitty developers building quarter of a game, releasing it and not doing anything else.

A few indie games is ok but the amount they now have is getting ridiculous, Please can we get a decent fully made game without built in DLC.

If you like me you will be looking forward to Toxikk, its worth googling :D

Oculus sucked by Zuck? 'I'm over it' – Minecraft supremo Notch

Lionel Baden
Bronze badge

Re: Word of warning, Notch

I have a Oculus rift DK2. I do not have a facebook account. I can guarantee that there is absolutely no facebookery in the Rift.

Yet !!!

Nobody is worried about the Oculus in its current format, its how Facebook are going to make their money from it. and it sure as hell isn't going to be from the hardware profit margin after acquiring it for the amount they did !

If the testers all reported yes I need a FB account to use it it would be financial suicide. Its when they release it you will find out what they are going to do.

On the other hand there are alot of very clever people who will happily try to break whatever facebook will implement, I for sure will be happy using custom firmware if it is available.

Yes I trust a random stranger on the internet more than I trust facebook.

Re: Word of warning, Notch

I all honesty, I would get very upset about facebook trying to get inside PC gaming

Notch was the #1 person in the vendetta against facebook for the occulous purchase.

Anyway what happening with the occulous now ?? oh wait nobody knows .... And people wonder why facebook buying this ruined VR

I presume EA & The Asylum will be joining forces, once EA can figure out how to make people pay for DLC in a film, maybe blanking the center of screen and charging to remove the block.

Re: GIF's?

@Fink-Nottle.

>It looks to me like you prefaced your off-topic reply with a throw away comment in an attempt to cover yourself in case of criticism. I would suggest that pointing out an internet site which contains funny GIFs hardly contributes to the discussion.

If you check the reply (click on the arrow to the left of my comment) you will see i was actually replying to you. And a website that contains thousands of gif images in response to "who uses gifs anyway" is actually pretty damn spot on the mark !

I was replying to both, but mainly The Mole's. So not really pot & Kettle.

I wasn't replying just to try and grab the second spot on the page, and completely ignoring the OP.

my reply actually had something to do with the previous post.

@Mr Hill. goto 9gag :) plenty of gifs there !!

@ Mole,

not sure why your replying to Mr Hill's comment as you talked about something completely unrelated, if were cynical about the whole thing my presumption would be you want ed to have your comment read at the top of the page instead of being 4 comments down ....

and in reply to your comment, all they would need to do is ban filming of the event therefore resolving any legal issues.

Re: Insert title here

@mrmagoo

I have to say the only ever Issue i had with a BT router was trying to play test Drive Unlimited, bt routers were throttling the P2P traffic.

Otherwise we have 5 computers 2 laptops 1 tablet and 4 phones and 1 p and a now TV box.

All the media in our house is streamed (no arial) and never ever had a problem, even when I am Maxing out on RS downloads, my wife is still able to watch Iplayer etc etc

BT routers .. Ill stick with them till they cannot serve their purpose. Although It makes me laugh when ppl Bin their BT routers and go out and buy a thompson !!

Re: Just some loose comments

front wheel uphill on gravel will suffer, but you can get 4x4 2cv's, I hope the two people on the front were passer by's (all adds to the fun of having a 2cv).

original had 1 engine in the front and another in the boot.

Nowadays they are also made with prop shaft.

Re: Over complicating the issue

Could just be that they cannot resolve the issue, and hope you just leave them alone.

That has been known to happen as well.

Over complicating the issue

Its humans being lazy and not bothering to to read your email.

See a few key words, set the template bang it out. 80% of the time it works, the last 20% comes back and somebody has to bother reading the ticket.

I had to do this at a unnamed company and i was banging out up to 600-800 emails a day. The previous standard was around 30 - 80 emails (whilst taking the odd call).

There was no quality, but it got rid of a massive backlog and it did help most of the people, no I am not proud.

Re: "Security is built in to W8.1"

feel free to chuckle, but it doesn't change the fact it is distributed with 8.1. So the statement is still valid.

im personally of the opinion that MSE isn't a bad choice when it comes to AV solutions.

"carefully avoids to mention that bringing a Windows PC up to the same spec re. software is just as expensive short term."

Erm ..... What ???

I just purchased a i7 quad core with 17" 1080 screen with 16GB of ram 128 GB SSD and 1TB spinny drive (no dvd drive though) for £850 for a family member.

"and more costly long term as you engage in the never ending fight to keep a Windows PC anywhere near safe"

Security is pretty much built in to W8.1

Just dont Click on "View your freinds bum we captured, but download this flash player first"

Viruses rarely exists for PC now, it mainly done through social engineering and duping users. That is resolved through education, some people get it, some dont.

I cant remember the last time i had a bug on my system !! was long enough to be not sure, lost in the hazy mists of time.

Seriously AVG all i wanted was AV, hence why i now use Security essentials. Unobtrusive and quiet, and halfway decent detection rate. I would even pay for that product !!!
