65,000 Complaints Later, Microsoft Files Suit Against Tech Support Scammers

Calydor Re:No, They Haven't Called Me (245 comments)

So they can leave a voice mail along the lines of, "This is NAME at HOSPITAL, please call us at your earliest convenience as we have someone here who has listed you as a point of contact."

Then when you get out of that long highway tunnel and can pull over you can check your voice mail and go to the hospital.

You don't NEED to be instantly accessible, there is nothing wrong with being QUICKLY accessible.

The Dominant Life Form In the Cosmos Is Probably Superintelligent Robots

Calydor Re:Life form? (389 comments)

Rabbits have internal information which under the right conditions can be used to form a new rabbit.

So what, a neutered animal isn't life?

Dad Makes His Kid Play Through All Video Game History In Chronological Order

Calydor Re:Oh, really? (222 comments)

Where does it say the kid is made to master every single game ever made?

How about just TRYING a good bunch of the established classics as a kind of fast-forward through gaming history?

I just hope he's spared Superman 64 ...

Sony Hacks Continue: PlayStation Hit By Lizard Squad Attack

Calydor Re:a fucking waste (170 comments)

FF14 has actually gotten a lot better after the revamp, and it's on PC, PS3 and PS4 - which means odds are decent that the OP plays the PSN version instead of the PC version.

Dragon Age: Inquisition Reviewed and Benchmarked

Calydor Re:Support the developers! (91 comments)

Yes they are.

If Amicus chooses not to buy or play the game, he will tell his friends about this decision and why he did it, doing his best to make sure they follow in his footsteps.

If Amicus chooses not to buy BUT play the game anyway, he will tell his friends that the game is actually rather awesome (if it is), and some of those friends may decide to buy it anyway because they don't have a beef with EA.

Oh wait, was that not the end result we were supposed to reach?

Comcast Forgets To Delete Revealing Note From Blog Post

Calydor Re:Huh? What does this reveal? (114 comments)

No, the note really does say, "To the best of our knowledge we aren't overlapping, but be prepared to change this text if a thorough examination of every square inch of the country reveals a single overlap."

France Wants To Get Rid of Diesel Fuel

Calydor Re:Why (395 comments)

Sometimes it's really worth reading the comment another comment replies to before replying to that other comment yourself.

That post talked about getting people to switch to a different engine, and while I admit I'm not a mechanic, I don't think you can just pull out the diesel engine in a car and install a petrol engine instead for anything resembling a reasonable price.

France Wants To Get Rid of Diesel Fuel

Calydor Re:Why (395 comments)

Good luck convincing them to ditch the car they bought in 2013, which is rendered essentially worthless by these changes, and buying a new car with a different kind of engine in it.

Fukushima Radiation Nears California Coast, Judged Harmless

Calydor Re:Some context (114 comments)

The salt is far more likely to kill you than the radiation.

You can take away my salt when you pry it from my cold, dead, mutated hands.

Fixed that for you.

YouTube Opens Up 60fps To Everyone

Calydor Re:Not retroactive (yet) (152 comments)

No, he said popularity is a useful sorting method when trying to pick which of four gazillion videos to re-encode first. Or did you think that the videos are already all in 60fps mode and only send every second frame when you view them?

Disney Patents a Piracy Free Search Engine

Calydor Re:So they patented this because....? (164 comments)

That was my thought as well. This is the perfect excuse for Google to shrug and say, "Welp, we can't do that ourselves now and we don't want to pay the license. Sorry fellas, ThePirateBay hits the #1 spot for 'disney movie' searches."

Pirate Bay Founder Gottfrid Warg Faces Danish Jail Time

Calydor Re:Find a better excuse (89 comments)

This is not about DVDs or songs.

This is about hacking into the social security database and downloading the whole thing possibly with intent to sell to the highest bidder.

70 Virgins?

Holy crap, even the afterlife is cutting corners now. Used to be 72 just a few years ago. Maybe too many muslims died and they're rationing the remaining virgins?
