Elite: Dangerous Dumps Offline Single-Player

sTERNKERN Re:Bought merely for single player... (473 comments)

I see your point and will most probably play the game either way but I would prefer simply having it "offline" by default than hoping for the best.

Elite: Dangerous Dumps Offline Single-Player

sTERNKERN Bought merely for single player... (473 comments)

I do not want to synchronize anything with any server which might or might not make it for some years until it is shut down. This is DRM nothing more. I bought this game to play on my own not bothered by any other player... Kickstarter should be able to penalize companies which are not willing to fulfill their promises.

Pope Francis Declares Evolution and Big Bang Theory Are Right

sTERNKERN Trying hard... (669 comments)

..to salvage anything they can. Science has been going forward in the last few thousand years, while chatolics (and basicly all religions) stood still. Magic is fading, so they have to make small tweaks to look at least a bit credible.

UN to Debate Use of Fully Autonomous Weapons, New Report Released

sTERNKERN Re:let me predict how this will go: (180 comments)

Homing missiles are fired by a person. We are talking about machines here which can have only a vague order like "protect this facility" or "advance to this point" and during the execution of these commands they can identify encountered people as hostile based on some criterias and can "decide" to eliminate them. That does not even come close to a homing missile.

Bennett Haselton: Google+ To Gmail Controversy Missing the Point

sTERNKERN Google plus (244 comments)

Just make it stop. I go to G-Mail to send mails, I go to Youtube to watch videos. If I wanted to socialize, I would have gone to Twitter/SnapChat/Facebook/MySpace (is there still such a thing?)/SecondLife... Google was famous for it's tools being simple, powerful and not forcing anything on the user. Good old days, eh?

As long as the h4ckZ0rs only switch my channel from NatGeo to CNN I do not really care much, but I bet they will be after things like credentials of people buying stuff on shopping channels.

Looking Back At the Commodore 64

sTERNKERN SYS 49152 (263 comments)

Still owning one... one day I showed it to my 4 and 6 year old sons. I expected some loud "Boo!"s as they do play games on my PC but they enjoyed it a lot :) I guess the C64 has a charm that does not fade with time.
