The Rebirth of PC Gaming? Bring On the Modders!

cwrinn Re:The questions developers ask (249 comments)

Why, then, is it that near every game comes out with an extensive modding platform if it is worth nothing to them? Your logic might make sense if you exclude the mountain of evidence that nullifies your whole point.

PS4: What Sony Should and Shouldn't Do

cwrinn Re:Two words: backward compatibility (406 comments)

Like Sony cared much on how much money we spent on PS2 games when they took out the Backwards Compat on the PS3. :\

Bethesda Tells Minecraft Creator: Cease and Desist

cwrinn Re:hmmm (200 comments)

Pretty sure the Beatles own the trademark for "Apple", and that this has actually been a legal case in the past WITH Apple Computers. Ironically, the agreement was that Apple Computers could never use their "Apple" in association with music... iTunes = whoops?

Ubisoft Considers Always-Connected DRM "A Success"

cwrinn Re:Game developer == Hollywood studio (224 comments)

Microsoft gave up on copy-protection software? What universe do you live in? I still get checked for Windows Genuine Advantage anytime I install something from Windows Games checks your serial numbers of games for pirated licenses, so on. Palladium Lives. :D

What Happens After the Super-Hero Movie Bubble?

cwrinn Re:Reboot (339 comments)

I, personally, would like to see a period Batman film, set in the original 30s in a Dark Deco setting reminiscent of the ol' Bruce Timm animated series. I'm getting tired of "modernizations" of classic super heroes; genetically altered spiders, cell phone imaging computers, al qaeda terrorist caves, etc.

The Brilliance of Dwarf Fortress

Dunno if you've noticed, but /. isn't exactly a "Front Page, Headline, World News" source. If you came here for that, maybe you should try CNN.

History of Software Forks Favors LibreOffice

cwrinn Re:Redundant links (149 comments)

Congraturations, you get award: Reading Fail. TFA's title = "Fork history does not favor" OPENOFFICE, not LIBREOFFICE. No contradiction. A fork in this context is when someone takes the code from a project and "forks" it on a different development path, like a "fork" in the road. OO.o went one way, Libre went the other. Have a nice day. :)

I read Opera also announced dropping H.264 support. I guess IE9 and Safari will be the only ones featuring it.

Facebook Study Shows Mondays Really Do Suck

cwrinn cwrinn writes  |  more than 4 years ago

cwrinn writes "The USA Gross National Happiness ( Prototype App on Facebook ( contains interesting trends. One that caught my eye, however, was the repetitive cycle when you zoom in to see the days of the week. Notice how it starts low on Monday and steadily climbs throughout the week, then spikes to a peak on Friday, drops slightly over the weekend, but then plummets on Monday? Scientific evidence that Monday sucks."
