Overbilled Customer Sues Time Warner Cable For False Advertising

Pubstar Re:Good for him! (223 comments)

The for you not being able to return it's by design. It's so you can't buy something, get the rebate and return it.

Blizzard Announces Overwatch, a First-Person Shooter

Pubstar Re:Watched about 20 seconds of the "game play" vid (183 comments)

And yet Tera would disagree with you about F2P models. Almost everything is cosmetic, and as for the P2W item that people birch about (PP Bolster for crafting) is a waste. EME let's you have 10 accounts per IP. All the top tier end game gear requires 1 or two types non tradeable, non bankable items to craft. Sure, I've made enough gold to buy the other mats 10 times over, but i still have to grind line everyone else. Oh yeah, and DotA 2 and LoL have some words to say about F2P being dead.

The Other Side of Diversity In Tech

Pubstar Re:lack of self-awareness (441 comments)

Every bar serves soda. Get a Coke or a glass of water, shoot some pool and have a good time. There are days i go out with my co-workers to the bar and not drink for various reasons (mostly school). I'm failing to see your point here.

High School Student Builds Gun That Unlocks With Your Fingerprint

Pubstar Re:Not comparable (600 comments)

Im going to have to agree. I had my car break down on me and I had to travel from the San Fernando Valley into Downtown LA 3 times per week. At first, I thought it was going to be a pain... until I realized that spending $5 on a day pass (I think month passes were $45) and taking the 412 Commuter Express was an option. Not only was I saving money (my old car was a 280Z turbo, got 18MPG if I was lucky), but also the headache of driving into town every day. I spent most of my trip there doing school work on my laptop.

I've since moved to a part of California where public transportation is just terrible (Ventura County), so I need to have my own car to even think about getting to work in under 2 hours for a 25 mile trip.

There is a difference between someone who DJs and someone who does a Live PA. Deadmau5 does Live PAs, and does not DJ.

Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture

Pubstar Re:More than the article states... (1134 comments)

So then we should only allow games like the Smurfs from Colecovision because that is the only game where nobody gets injured and lacks any kind of moral choice? You're really stretching for a point here.

Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture

Pubstar Re:One bad apple spoils the barrel (1134 comments)

This is why I never cared to much about gaming journalism outside of a few YouTube channels I trust. Everyone is either bought out, or pushing an agenda that offends me. Hell, I stopped reading PCGamer around the time I saw a banner ad for the ME3 Review. You know what it said? "Reviewed on PC". NO SHIT, I'd hope that PCGamer is reviewing things on PC.

Ask Slashdot: SIM-Card Solutions In North America?

Pubstar Re:You'll want either AT&T or T-Mobile. (146 comments)

I'm paying $60/month right now for unlimited everything on T Mobile, but I don't get throttled data (yes, I did get full LTE speed for 37GB one month), and it includes tethering. If you are not as data heavy as I am, you can easily get an unlimited plan for $40, if not less.

Emory University SCCM Server Accidentally Reformats All Computers Campus-wide

Pubstar Re:IPMI and other "lights-out" (564 comments)

Super late to this, but I would just like to note that for the large national bank that I work for, we require machines to be on, but have no users logged in, for us to do a remote Windows XP to Windows 7 migration. This is mostly so we can run a Scanstate against the machine prior to reimaging it.

FileSonic removes sharing feature

Pubstar Pubstar writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Pubstar (2525396) writes "Seems as if we have more to worry about in the wake of Megauploads demise:

Filesonic, one of the Internet's leading cyberlocker services, has taken some drastic measures following the Megaupload shutdown and arrests last week. In addition to discontinuing its affiliates rewards program and not yet paying accrued money to members, the site has disabled all sharing functionality, leaving users only with access to their own files. But the bad news for the site’s users doesn’t end there. In the last few hours, before file-sharing was disabled, Filesonic also ended its rewards program, meaning that uploaders to the site no longer earn money when people download their files. A moot point perhaps, since no-one will be downloading files anyway.
