    Warcraft Adventure Game Leaks After 18 Years

    Yeah, I remember it. It was also listed in our catalogue of upcoming releases at the store I was working at. The best though is remembering Interstate '76! What a great game!

    Exploring The Hacker Tools Of Mr. Robot

    Even outside of the very good job they've done depicting hacking and computers in general (thanks to having, like, actual hackers and security experts on staff), the show is terrific. Cinematography, score, story, acting, really great stuff, and quite the mind fuck at times.

    Man Arrested For Refusing To Unlock Phone At Border

    It's a new case, and I'm glad it's finally being brought up. I've no doubt that this or another like it will wind up going to the supreme court. We do have some pretty serious privacy laws, but also some pretty different holes in them than in the states... as far as inspecting goods, they're...

    Visa Begins ‘Aggressive’ Rollout of PayPal Competitor Visa Checkout

    It's not, because you cant. All it does is keep you from having to type in payment details / shipping address, so not sure what the big deal is. Side note, Interac does person to person money transfers up here (Canada) via e-Transfer for that paypal type ability if you need it.

    Broadband In U.S. Still Slower, More Expensive Than Everywhere Else

    Toronto is in the study, which you can see from the link in the article. It only looks good compared to Mexico City... otherwise its the same ballpark as the US.

    GNOME 3.14 Is Winning Back Linux Users

    I've become rather fond of Trinity lately. Yeah, works a lot like Win7 but, if it aint broke... plus it runs nice and fast on my old laptop.

    NASA Tests 'Impossible' Space Drive

    Exactly. It is an interesting result, but despite what some people seem to think in this thread, sometimes there can be free lunches in the weird spaces between well understood physics models... Anyway... FULL IMPULSE POWER! Damn you! FULL POWER!

    Happy 40th Anniversary, Dungeons & Dragons

    Same... picked up my first box set back in 1978... which turns out was the 1977 printing of the Basic Set, which I still have in a box lol... though the dice "chits" are long gone... Time flies! Still have the first 4 hardcover rulebooks too.

    Sea Sonic Signs Deal To Power Next Generation of Bitcoin Mining Equipment

    It has the bonus of being true. Not long ago, bitcoin value "split" kind of like how stocks can, because a certain number of coins had been mined, and it was always part of the design to have a drop in value once that number was reached. Just going off of memory from when I looked into the...

    Malwarebytes Puts Antivirus Cleanup Program on a USB Stick

    Cool, but way too expensive, considering you can roll your own for free (or use one of the many other livecd's.) Wonder if it has a write-protect tab... kinda miss those from the first usb sticks.

    When did the front page center all the articles instead of left align? Archives look normal, just the front page is messed up. Fluke? Find it really hard to read with everything center aligned.. *edit* nm seems to be fixed now.

    Windows 8.1 RTM Could Go Gold 'Any Day'

    The problem... again... and why does this need to be repeatedly stated... is that MS explicitly removed that and other choices from the user, and effectively made it a pain (if not impossible) to restore said choices. Show me the 3rd party application that gives Glass back to the Win8 UI.

    Windows 8.1 RTM Could Go Gold 'Any Day'

    Yeah, but you and I and most people here know that the most important changes between versions are under the hood. MS pushes these interface changes to make it look like they are doing something, and in the process alienate a portion of their customer base every time. I dont really see the...

    Windows 8.1 RTM Could Go Gold 'Any Day'

    Which is unfortunate, as the loss of Aero Glass was a big strike against my adopting win8 on my home machine, and the loss of it (+ OMGRIBBON!!) means I'll never use Office 2013 either, and no client has ever expressed joy at discovering the ribbon after "upgrading"...

    Upgrading From A Core 2 Quad Q6600 To The i7-4770K

    My secondary rig is my old Q6600 2.8ghz, compared to my primary i7 930 3.2ghz there's not *really* a huge difference except at the top end of performance gaming. (My tertiary rig is a p4 prescott @ 3.4 ghz! That thing heats the room when it's on...) So yeah, I disagree with the conclusion as...

    Console Launch Prices Adjusted For Inflation

    I bought a 2600 for the $200... we couldnt afford the intellivision 8( But the 2600 was great, and had way more games. Still, my friends had an intellivision and there were a couple games I *loved* on that thing... AD&D and especially Sea Battle!

    Mozilla Readies Major Firefox Redesign

    I stayed with 3.6 for a long time, like the rest of you I can only agree... the browser is a tool. I dont need an emotional attachment. I want it to work quickly and I want it to work the way I like to work it... which means customization, which is where FF traditionally has been strong...

    Microsoft Puts a Windows 8 Key on Its Latest Mice

    So... its the "key" to new keyboard shortcuts, so lets put it on a mouse. Brilliant! Pretty sure I could set one of the 8 programmable buttons on my mouse to be the Winkey if I really wanted to... but why on earth would I?
