Fifth Edition Dungeons and Dragons Player's Handbook Released

Inconexo Re:A little bashing (195 comments)

It's logical that a major rewrite is needed once in a pair of decades. But it's surprising to me that after that, the game still changes so much from edition to edition, even with the goals you stated.

The problem is, if the game feels so different on each edition, many people won't change to the new one. I follow RPG.SE, and on that site, there are questions on all D&D editions (AD&D, 3, 3.5, pathfinder, 4, 5) which seems as a huge fanbase, but too fragmented.

Time will say if 5th edition is going to bring them all together.

Fifth Edition Dungeons and Dragons Player's Handbook Released

Inconexo Re:A little bashing (195 comments)

I am annoyed on the contrary. I am surprised that such a long lived RPG still need to change drastically on every edition. Early editions would logically change more, but I am surprised that 30 years later they still need to make such huge changes between editions. If in three decades you haven't still invented a good skills system, I don't know if they would ever do.

Research Unveils Improved Method To Let Computers Know You Are Human

Inconexo Re:I get it (91 comments)

Those games may be "engaging" when you want to play a game. When I want to do something different in the Internet, I feel more like annoyed.

TrueCrypt Cryptanalysis To Include Crowdsourcing Aspect

Inconexo Re:Crowdsourcing (131 comments)

AFAIK, it is neither free software nor open source. If you cannot fork it, it's not open source, even if the source code is published.

Open source is that which is open to read, modify, redistribute,... Not only open to read.

The Greatest Keyboard Shortcut Ever

Inconexo Re:Huh? What? (506 comments)

I discovered it several years ago, when after accidentally closing a tab I thought "What if I could bring it back", and the combination came to my mind instinctively.

But now, I think it's so widely know, at least for nerds, that I also don't understand how this is in the front page.

YouTube To Offer Subscription Service This Week

Inconexo Re:bring the content first (189 comments)

Honestly, I don't think I am able to see more youtube content. Why pay for more content if I don't have the time to see all of what is offered for free?

Get Zapped While Playing Video Games

Inconexo Re:Old, boring, uninspired... (65 comments)

Again, this is what this video is not about. The text is not clear enough, but if you actually watch it, you see that the idea is to stimulate the muscle to give the illusion you are exercing force. It is a more subtle form of feedback.

HBO Says Game of Thrones Piracy Is "a Compliment"

Inconexo Re:No shit (447 comments)

Still, I wouldn't have bought AGOT DVD if I hadn't knew the series. I wouldn't have known the series if weren't from a "illegal"[1] copy.

[1] In my country is not actually illegal.

GNOME 3.8 To Scrap Fallback Mode

Inconexo Re:And that will also mark (378 comments)

What I read years ago was that Linus disliked KDE less than he disliked GNOME. If that is something nice, depends on your optimism.

The FSF Adopts the Kickstarter Approach To Fund-raising

Inconexo Re:This is not the Kickstarter model. (35 comments)

You're right. But I think they meant the system in which depending on the donated amount you receive a bigger reward. Although in this case the rewards are quite symbolic.

The FSF Adopts the Kickstarter Approach To Fund-raising

Inconexo Re:I'm a fan of the FSF (35 comments)

Only that the name was not set by the FSF. Indeed, they were using that name (without the GNU prefix) before they joined the GNU project.

If you knew RMS as you think you do, you'll know that name doesn't match his pattern.

Internet Giants To Honor the 'No' In 'No Tracking'

Inconexo Re:Easy answer (118 comments)

That trap is supposed to work only as a yes/no question.

Suppose a form:

Have you stopped beating your wife?

[ ] Yes [ ] No [ ] NR/DK

All three options are bad.
