Re: More Microsoft user based testing
For an hour if you stay up really late. Fallout 5 with a Coop mode was what we really wanted, even if it was just inviting them as a companion... We would of loved it.

China has got this one right, no one should patents on ideas/inventions and if someone can make something better then so be it! Specially with drugs and medical equipment absolute joke we allow companies to hold patents on cures and treatments and allow research to be done behind closed doors. If humanity ever wants to progress we are going to have to start being more open the idea of sharing our ideas/designs/inventions. Ffs all IT folk should know this, without RFC's and sharing we would of never had the internet and the tools we have today.
So sad Bethesda had to go and trash Fallout, this could of been massive if they had just gave us private servers and mod support, the kind of crap we'd expect with a Fallout game. But nope, they wanted a cosmetics store. Shame so many companies have gone this route and forgot what made them great, I miss pirates on Battlefield :(
I thought it was working as intended, it was built to get data from one place to another and security was never its intension. The real problems happened when it started getting used for commerce and cost cutting by big business with poorly trained or sometimes overtrained people setting the stuff up to add to the fire!
Yup why bother paying people to test your product when you can get people todo it for free, same with the games industry as well just its called Early Access. Absolute joke and the practice needs to stop sadly the only way this will happen is if the kids stop parting with their cash for incomplete garbage and the chance to be the first...
The only good thing about this is the name! Why not dump all the paperwork and pay every British citizen a universal income instead of the current benefits system, a basic living allowance to cover the costs of life allowing us to work towards better things and brighter futures, it would ease the labor market and make companies give better benefits to get those workers, it would lead to people living a more varied and rewarding life instead of the stress and divides we currently have! Lets keep the name and make a change for the better of society instead of for the greed of others.
He probably did the deed in my eyes but when people are extradited the country they are sent to should at the very least have to cover the legal costs for them if they are removed from a country where a solicitor/barrister would usually be provided for you free of charge, this should be part of the UK's conditions on letting our citizens go through this process! always knew it was to good to be true, and it was probably a story to cover him accidentally registering the domain in his name in the first place, but that is for the court to decide.
I hope they stick to there guns and stay away from the store until Microsoft decides to dump its forced upgrade policy(YES WE ALL KNOW SEA OF THIEVES COULD BE RAN ON WINDOWS 7 OR EVEN XP! yes Im a kid at heart forget office)to its crappy Marketeers wet dream that is Windows10 and they themself's finally open up their source code. I know when 7 finally goes(its only for games its used atm anyway) Ubuntu with GnomeFlashback and a few other alterations will be my goto OS.
I know this may seem a little odd in the modern world but have we erm tried parenting? Like old fashioned style where the parents pay attention to their kids and what they get up to... I know giving them a smart phone and unfettered access to the net is easy and give you mummies plenty extra time for candy crush but maybe we need to get a little old school and start looking after our families again! We could start doing the same for our old as well instead of dumping them off in old peoples homes, imagine a world where people cared...
They are just taxi's that don't need to have the extra vehicle safety checks, or special insurance, or local knowledge tests, or any form of check really, face it they are nothing more than a taxi you order with an app instead of a telephone call. unless they are sending out registered taxi drivers they should be fined and stopped from trading in the UK or the regulations on insurance and vehicle safety tests should be dropped for taxi drivers.
GCSE is a joke if its still anything like it was when I did it, we had to make a Zeotrope, write a letter in word and produce a presentation to explain how we would design a website no actual html or php just an explanation as to how we would lay it out, in English words not code, no image editing no nothing it was the biggest sham I had ever seen. Their only defense was we were the first year to take it.
Faster? its using more memory/cpu than ever! Plus the new look is absolutely hideous, and I only see a hindrance to the new layout no extra benefits to it all. All in all they dragged me away from Microsoft over ten year ago and now they have just pushed me right back with this godawful update! well until a fork comes along then I might have another look. Hope NoScript gets ported to IE it was Firefoxes biggest selling point for me(yes I know firefox will have it back soon as well).
It was the only thing that Thatcher actually got right, when she decided that breweries should only be allowed to own a certain amount of pubs. This idea should be taken a step further and be implemented with property and cash. We don't need people owning hundred of flats and houses and it does nothing but increase prices for everyone else(I do see how that can be a benefit if you already have property, and yes I do and id rather see the loss). The same for money, it is not an unlimited resource we only have so much in circulation, so why on earth should people be allowed to hoard large percentages of it? I'm not even going to get started on the way it is created and paid for.
i wrote abit of code on sorceforge years ago called mshell in vb, removed recently for some unkown reason highlighting the biggest problem with windows and trojans, with a simple dll call you can hide your process from taskmon to top this off this stunt can also be pulled off in the dev version spy++
its a stupid feature that should of never been added as it only allows abuse and personally I believe that is why it was added.
i used to work as a tech in a shop in my youth, we had a cock up on a receipt and the counter guy had put Mhz down after the amd 1800, its didn't run at 1800mhz, and at the time that was the fastest chip, i had to handle the call and well i told him where togo after he didnt accept the explanation(why i was never allowed in the shop front) and he later managed to come in the store and get my boss, i was shocked he just gave the guy a full refund on his system and let him keep it he even got software covered on his warranty he was in nearly every week with some idiotic issue and would always ask for me, sure he just liked getting under my skin. needless to say after reading this i now know why he just gave him his money back and kissed his arse.
Poor sods, wonder if they will have any means of comeback? Its a joke mind and will lead to the end of the Rift. still its mainly old tech anyway, I remember the VR Game in the toy shop when I was a kid in the early nineties, it was always broken. only difference is higher def screen no doubt and fancier graphics and a few more sensors. Why it cant be open software so Devs can actually concentrate on making VR games instead of pandering the whims of hardware manufacturers I do not know, oh yeah I do in the hopes of making more money! It really shouldn't be this complicated, its just sensor feedback, screens a screen...
imagine the over payments though! I really don't understand what is so hard about devoloping the system though at its heart it is just a big database a few forms and a link to the bacs system, spend a bit on hardware fair enough but on the software dev side man what the hell is wrong with these peeps.
