    Yea the tech said it's brand new and they literally just rolled out the DOCSIS 3.1 gig and this is the first week he's installing them. Whatever that means. He did mention they are not advertising it on purpose though to see how it does, I guess compared to fiber.

    Fuck you I only act like a crotchety old man I don't look like one! Man I've used Perl for some fucked up shit over the years. I had to use it to build a fucking weird ass spreadsheet in excel from odd reports to mimic ask ancient excel 2000 report EXACTLY, because newer versions of excel did...

    Yes, you do misunderstand. My point is simply that we have now reached a point where we have commodified digital objects. Much like when burgeoning societies in the late Renaissance era contemplated and refined the idea of intellectual property through to today to give tangibility and...

    EE question

    Right - my plan is to keep the 'shell' in tact. The only penetration is one screw lead that grounds the shell, my plan is to leave a ring open around that so there's no issue with the contact. All of the components share a common ground so the actual switch plate and body, the pickups, etc...

    No, common law with a modern understanding of digital products. If you buy a DVD, you do not own rights to the core IP. You have a piece of personal property which contains a digital copy of a movie and the license for personal use (viewing). However, no such title to the copy exists for...

    No with you I disagree philosophically about the nature of digital goods and whether a vehicle or weapon in a game world should be considered chattel

    Very easily, you require Amazon to facilitate transfer ownership to the other party since all digital purchases must contain implied title for the license, service, access, etc. They still may be required to have an Amazon account to login and access it (warranty of title does not eliminate the...

    So according to some people here, if you could put money in a slot machine and out would pop grand prizes of software with non-transferable licenses, non-transferable cost-free leases for cars and luxury apartments, non-transferable free meals for life from a steak house, etc., this would not be...

    Yes,I fundamentally disagree with the nature of digital products. I believe as we continue to, for lack of a better term "digitize" consumer products and services, they need to be held to the same standards as physical goods.

    I would say the opposite. It SHOULD be gambling and I think the EULAs and lack of regulations which provide a marketplace that automatically revokes the long held common law implied warranty of title. These game companies are saying "here, buy our digital goods but since they're digital we can...

    I'm going to start bringing a D20 to restaurants. I'll ask the waitress to hold on when they bring back my card. I'll then roll the die and say "wow critical failure, sorry about your tip." and write in whatever the die comes up with. Laissez Faire

    Nothing is stopping them. However, stop being a disingenuous cunt. These companies have helped railroad the DMCA through Congress and mold it into a weapon to unilaterally shut down content creators. They've also managed to set policies in almost every retail chain and digitally to limit or...

    OK that's fine. They'll also have a black mark upon them and be plastered all over advertisements to drive most consumers away.

    World of Warcraft: Classic

    In vanilla the only way through to non druids was the furbolg tunnels which, unless you were grinding rep to improve, usually murdered level appropriate people. I almost think Cenarion Circle was unfriendly to non druids and you couldn't use vendor/inn/etc. until they added Silithus content...

    So just got off the phone with my congressman's office, they called me back from my submitted comments. They sent an inquiry today to the ESRB and the CTA about the inclusion of using real money to gamble for outcomes in gaming and on electronic devices. They also sent e-mails to several...

    Yea I got TV and the phone ill never even plug in. The cap still appears to be 1TB. Options are $30 for another 500GB or $50 for unlimited. For comparison the same package with 300 mbps ultimate was the same price, so why not use the gig service.

    Damn you may be right now that I'm looking at the specs. I for sure was looking for IPS and once calibrated it isn't far off from my older LG IPS monitor. Well that sucks. Guess I won't feel bad replacing it with another TN panel now. The real question is will nVidia actually support...

    I mean if you want to game in style, a 24" 144hz gsync 1440p monitor isn't THAT much. I have the Dell one (D2417DG or something) which is an IPS panel so it's more expensive. That said if you don't really care that much and just want something nicer in general (though I think this is only 75...
