If it runs on 7, it'll run find on 8, in my experience.
Re: This time Microsoft has gone too far
Because they're stopping providing free support for an 12 year old product?
Re: Can be the most intense game ever.
The short version is:
Because there is the chance of loss (if something explodes, it's gone. You have to build or buy a new one. Loss is meaningful in eve. You don't just respawn and have to run back to your corpse.), and you're playing against real people, there's adrenaline flowing.
Re: No one has addressed the important points.
That'd be the CFC ;)
Wrecks last 2 hours. If they're not salvaged in that time, they're gone.
These are just display models.
You should be aware:
There was likely no real money involved with this battle. While it's kind of possible to 'buy' currency, it's
A: Not direct.
B: Not really done by the people who fly ships on this scale.
All in game currency is earned in game.The only way to 'buy' it, is by buying game time, and selling it to another player.
Errors in reporting
It wasn't a missed micro-payment.
It was a missed payment of in game currency. Not real money. Which is a fairly major difference. When you get to the level that these people are at in game, you're rarely spending any of your own money, even for game time.
It's not possible to directly buy currency with real money, unless you're willing to break the EULA and get banned.
What is possible is:
A: Buy a game time code from CCP. This is known as a PLEX (pilot licence extension). This can be traded in for 30 days of game time. It's less cost effective than buying a subscription, but leads to...
B: Convert the code into an item within EVE Online. At this point, it can be traded to another player, for a quantity of in game currency (ISK) It's also possible for it to be blown up, if you're foolish enough to put it in the hold of your space ship.
C: That player can then trade it in for game time, and not have to pay for the game.
While EVE does have micro-transactions, these are for purely cosmetic items. Which can be traded on the market for ISK.
Re: Spam bot
Just a device that yells 'I'm here!'
What your device does with it, is down to what you have installed on it.
So you could, for example, write an app that turns on your wifi when you get home, using a beacon to identify it. As long as you have enough beacons to cover your home.
All works for me...
as per the title, I'm still seeing it.
Re: "do it properly with an iPad Mini / Nexus 7"
It's front lit. the light comes from the sides, and across a light guide sheet.
Battery life is rated at a year.
With the caveat that that's only reading 12-15 books a year.
Just a death ray, with an inadequate power supply.
I'll get my coat.
HAL was fine. Just given conflicting orders.
1: Charger is included (usb output, with a usb to micro usb cable also included)
Socket also allows for syncing.
Charge time seems ok, but I've not timed it.
2: not a clue about usb otg. no adaptor
3: no adaptor. No idea about cable, but I suspect they couldn't call it mini hdmi if it's not following the standard.
4: bundled headphones. no inline. sounds ok.
5: Camera's ok. not as good as a proper one, but ok for quick snaps.
Space? Space. Wanna go to space. Gotta go to space. Space. Space.
Kind of misleading title
Console doesn't bring the handhelds to mind. Just things like the Xbox or PS3.
uh, they're about a quarter of the price of an iPad, and eInk is nicer on the eye?
Oh, then there's the battery life. hard to beat the kindle there.
Kindle Fire will be a different case, but still, 199 is a far easier price to swallow.
Had this happen to me
with Scottish Gas.
Hardly a big problem. Gave them a call and was assure I wouldn't be billed that much. And I wasn't.
Difference is, people have tested it. And in all double blind tests, no-one's proven that it affects them.
We don't need /another/ tld. It's not like anyone would just have a .scot. It's just another domain to buy to ring fence your trademarks.
Stupid moneygrab of an idea. If we were independent, then sure, but we're not; and not likely to be any time soon.
not confused, exactly...
It's not getting negotiation, so it defaults to the lowest supported. 10 half. Which will collision like crazy when the other side is set to 100 full.
I call bullsh*t
Will budgets be cut? Maybe. Will this mean the end of story driven games? No. There's a market for them, so they'll be made. It's not like the budgets need to be as high as they are. As long as people are willing to accept that the graphics aren't cutting edge, and so on.
Mobile games aren't in the same market as the bigger games.
And extrapolation, well... http://xkcd.com/605/
Says it all, really.
thankfully, there's a sample option
You can request a sample of most ebooks, before buying.
ipad + iworks is the same price as office? iworks makes the ipad cheaper then?
Being that you can get Office pro for around 250, retail. Volume licensing is cheaper.
Not just broadband customer
It's been affecting our managed internet service for the last 26 hours or so.
use the add on bar
Or you could go to the view menu and turn on the add-on bar. Which is the replacement for the status bar.
And if you want it to act like the old style status bar, install status 4 evar [sic].
You don't. kinda
You'll have the link local addresses, which never go outside.
However, every machine that needs to connect to the outside world /also/ has a globally routable IP
Part of the reason for IPv6 is to get rid of NAT, as it breaks the end to end model. You just need to have a firewall in place to block new connections.
NAT's always the problem with stuff like this.
not so much
Just because it's expired doesn't mean it's not secure.
All it means is they've not paid for a new one. They don't magically switch off when a date passes.
That chat transcript is a trifle misleading. The entire thing is run through SSL. yes, it's clear text in the URL. But you can't get at the URL unless you're man in the middling the SSL transaction
Though I'm not going to get it for a while, after buying myself a Vega. Maybe next year.
All, I would expect it to be unlocked.
As in, that's how I would /want/ it to be.
After all, my phone from O2 came unlocked. It's not that uncommon for contract phones to be unlocked. You're locked into the carrier until the contract is over, at least as far as paying goes.
Centos wasn't the target
Oracle on the other hand, they were. When they take Red Hat's work, and then rebrand it, before reselling it for less, that's what ate into Red Hat's margin. Not Centos. It's not like there aren't other free versions out there.
If they really wanted to do it, the option would be to stop distributing the SRPMS to all and sundry. They're under no obligation to give them to anyone but their customers.
It cures cancer!
umm... That about what you're expecting? ;)
maybe maybe not
Sometimes it is cheaper for a big company to provide a service, than a small one.
Economies of scale. Not all costs are linear.
Course, people don't use it, as it's a pain in the ass to set up. But once it's up and running, your little network node won't let you hook in, if you can't authenticate.
The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.

Should work with facebook, though some apps don't work.
Don't see a problem, myself
It's not like the majority of the heat comes from the person.
And it's hardly 'green madness'. It's a money saving thing. And it's all tax payer money. so if it save the council money, it saves you money.
mr pedantic strikes!
DLNA medai streaming platform
media, i think you mean
nah. no title.
It'd be odd, if people outside the uk could get the bbc on the xbox, and us Brits can't.
Iplayer's on the PS3, but apparently it would only be on the xbox, if you had gold. and they're not allowed to do that, or something.
A: People are morons. There's plenty of research that shows things like taste tests where people know what they're tasting give very different results to blind tests.
B: Upscaling can have very different results, on different source material.
How about a spam filter?
Do spam filters have a right to look through your message, to see if it's spam?
Inverted Crosses! Oh no!
Who'd want to follow a man that sits on a throne with an inverted cross?
Other than the Catholics, I mean.
redundancy's all fine and good
What makes big networks break, is when their routing tables get hosed by the bad updates being spewed by a badly configured/misupdated router.
No redundancy can stop that from happening. Though it shouldn't take 6 hours to fix.
use local policies
You can disable the fade effect if you want. it's known as the secure desktop (as takes control, rather than just popping a box)
Just fire up mmc, load the group policy object editor snap in, and go to computer configuration->windows settings->security settings->local policies->security options.
The policy is User account control : switch to secure desktop[...]
Course, there's probably a security implication.
nothing stopping them
Nothing stopping them using a controller as well.
IPv6 is hardly new. it's been in linux for ages. And on by default, too.
No idea why they're mentioning it in the 'what's new'.
Pretty much. There's 4 different ways to end it, Though once you start one, it locks out the others.
But you can wander freely, until you do start one.
