How Long Is Your Morning Commute?

jerep Closest to work possible! (353 comments)

I have a 10 minutes walk to get to work. Since I live in Canada for 3/4 of the year that commute involves a snowstorm or bears, most often both. I'm thinking about moving closer to work.

I actually prefer moving closer to work, even with higher prices. It usually pays off since I get more productivity time for myself every day and less traffic frustrations, I'm at the point where I can actually walk to work and it is awesome. Still, barely close enough to come back home for lunch, so I'm moving again next year!

jerep Re:Facebattle.net (188 comments)

If they do that they're just begging for their games to be pirated so these fascist enforcements can go away.

StarCraft II Beta To Begin This Month

jerep Re:This beta should be...fun? (182 comments)

The good thing about the beta is that it will allow hackers to work on a bnet-to-lan emulator, which shouldn't really be harder than tracking packets and learning what they do.

heck if pirated servers for wow were functionnal before the actual game launched, this should be real easy to code.

Blizzard Previews Revamped Battle.net

jerep Re:Facebattle.net (188 comments)

It still should be optional, people should be free to decide whether they want to use the bnet integration or not. I myself will most likely run sc2 behind a firewall when i play the single player campaign to not be bothered and find a bnet-to-lan utility for lan gaming.

Would Leonardo Da Vinci Get a Job Today?

jerep Re:No, nor would he want to. (16 comments)

That would explain why our entire economy is flooded with uncreative people polluting our markets with useless gizmos so they can buy themselves volvos and play golf.

The New National Health Plan Is Texting

jerep Re:Uh, rant much? (191 comments)

You know, with each new government action that gets posted here on slashdot, my hope in democracy as it stands now fades away, I thought at one point it would disappears but now it appears I have negative hope towards democracy.

That system is now so corrupt it itself has trouble keeping track of what it stands for and makes decisions like.. texting health plans. That sounds like someone needing mass attention or wanting mass distractions to me.

Preach something, do something different. This is just one area out of hundreds where the government do that, I don't see anything new here.

EA Spends 3x on Marketing Than Development

jerep Re:TJ (442 comments)

I never tried it, I didn't like the first one very much, gameplay was too repetitive for my tastes.

EA Spends 3x on Marketing Than Development

jerep Re:TJ (442 comments)

I agree, EA has to be one of the game companies i dislike the most. Their games have little to no replay value, if any value in the first place. Its obvious they're in it for the money and not the games themselves.

If you have to spend 3 times the money of development for marketing alone, its a pretty strong sign that you're selling crap and not giving a shit about your customers, all you want is their money.

The state of our entire entertainments industry today is very sad, everything is more about money than it is about quality.
