Black LED Re:Feel for you... (131 comments)

Onite makes good batteries for various phones. I have a stock LG battery and two Onites for my phone and they work great, as good or slightly better than the official one.

Web Trolls Winning As Incivility Increases

Black LED Re:Some people... (457 comments)

It's a pointless, unproductive waste of time, and the fact that people get jollies out of deliberately aggravating other people bespeaks of a certain level of sociopathy.

Feeling pleasure from the misfortune of others is common in humour. Being the dominant, accepted form of humour in most societies, it's the opposite of sociopathy.

Pseudonyms Now Allowed On Google+

Black LED Re:Youtube Comments (238 comments)

Ever since the Google+ marriage to YouTube if I click on a comment to see what it was in response to, it opens up a new tab and still doesn't show me the parent post. I'm using the latest version of Chromium and have YouTube whitelisted in my JavaScript blocker, so I don't know what the problem is.

Windows 9 To Win Over Windows 7 Users, Disables Start Screen For Desktop

Black LED Re:I won't upgrade. (681 comments)

Because they were considered a security hole. That was true, but only if you were using shady gadgets. If you want them back in Windows 8 you can use 8GadgetPack or better yet, use a different gadget engine like XWidget.

Physical Media: Down, But Maybe Not Out

Black LED Re:Meh. (116 comments)

I don't have a problem with digital distribution, so long as companies cannot remove access to paid for content, hold it hostage and/or prevent me from making my own backups. gog.com is the only service which has done this correctly, in that I can download what I buy and write it to whatever media I want, ensuring that I can keep copies for as long as I please.

It's unfortunate that there are no video services that allow people to do the same. I suppose you could vidcap your purchases and burn those, but you shouldn't have to do that.

Black LED Re:Hell Yes! (251 comments)

I would go so far to say that Freelancer's keyboard/mouse flight set up surpasses flight stick controls. It was just that good.

The Witcher 3 and Projekt Red's DRM-Free Stand

Black LED Re:Beta Sucks (115 comments)

Duh, stupid me. Of course it was on gog.com on day one. gog.com is a service run by the makers of The Witcher series.

The Witcher 3 and Projekt Red's DRM-Free Stand

Black LED Re:Beta Sucks (115 comments)

Wasn't it up on gog.com on release day? If I recall correctly, it was one of the few "big" games that gog did get right away.

'The Door Problem' of Game Design

Black LED Re:Easy answers (305 comments)

I challenge you to name one game where you can do everything that you should be able to do. Oh what, I can't travel to those mountains in the distance because it's just a skybox? Failure of a game. I can't jump in a jet and fly to another country? Failure of a game. I can't dig a hole in the ground as far as I want? Failure of a game.

Come on man.

Black LED Black LED writes  |  about a year ago

Black LED (1957016) writes "Over 85 percent of all pancreatic cancers are diagnosed late, when someone has less than two percent chance of survival. How could this be? Jack Andraka talks about how he developed a promising early detection test for pancreatic cancer that's super cheap, effective and non-invasive."
