The Growing Illusion of Single Player Gaming

As long as Developers don't want my money, they can keep on designing Multiplayer only games!

I think I'll load up Moo2 again. Or X-com.

Technological Solution For Texting While Driving Struggles For Traction

the_Bionic_lemming It's easy (326 comments)

Instead of a technology solution, just ratchet up distracted driving to DUI costs.

If the officer sees you in the left lane doing under the speed limit while staring at a cellphone with thumbs twitching - pull them over, impound the car, and fine the driver $20,000 and suspend their license.for two years on a first offense.

Problem solved.

I'll await the downmodding of the folks that think it's ok to let go of the steering wheel to text while on an interstate and in the left lane.

BBC: ISPs Should Assume VPN Users Are Pirates

the_Bionic_lemming sigh (362 comments)

I use VPN to dial into my home machine while at work because the it idiots just check filters and apps instead of really examining traffic.

I also use netflix to watch top gear, but after this fiasco, I'll be looking into d/l all my favorite bbc stuff like ground force, sarah jane, mi5 and the rest.

Way to go BBC - did you ever read the book on making friends and influencing enemies?

They bought 149 fish and based their experiment on 111 in a terrarium and 38 in the control?

Seriously? Who got to choose the fish that went into the overloaded terrarium ?

CenturyLink: Comcast Is Trying To Prevent Competition In Its Territories

the_Bionic_lemming the solution is easy (110 comments)

Allow them to cherry pick and mandate them to expand to the poor.

Comcast won't have a leg to stand on, and the cherry picker will be forced to expand and compete.

Alternatively, comcast should be forced to make high speed internet inexpensive when the consumer decides to not take them up on television or phone service.

If Comcast shuts up about someone competing with them, then maybe both of them can avoid getting legislated.

You are of course incorrectly basing this on the premise that lemmings technology stats aren't higher than mere humans.

Microsoft To Drop Support For Older Versions of Internet Explorer

the_Bionic_lemming Cool (138 comments)

Sounds like a great reason to not use Internet Explorer.

In the past 7 years I've only had to use it a relatively few times - For instance Illinois gubment can't be bothered to make their apps non IE friendly.

but hey, to each their own.

Windows XP Falls Below 25% Market Share, Windows 8 Drops Slightly

the_Bionic_lemming Re:Who has the market share? (336 comments)

That's a shame.

When i left Mac for windows in 1999 it was because windows had games - It wasn't hard for anyone who wanted computer games back then to make the decision - 3 aisles worth of windows games, or a shelf of mac games. I tell the mac (apple) lovers that the single biggest mistake apple did was to listen to the engineer that crapped on computer gaming.

If Open source would focus on Gaming - then the masses WILL flock over and get on board. Make a Distro that ports games automatically - make it stupidly easy to use, and the market share of Apple and Microsoft will tank.

Computer Gaming put Microsoft in the masses households. If it hadn't been for gamers, PCs would of still been a basement Nerd hobby today.

Good search engines that do not censor?

the_Bionic_lemming the_Bionic_lemming writes  |  about 2 years ago

the_Bionic_lemming (446569) writes "A friend of mine asked me to help him find some cigars, and I told him to use google shopping to get the best prices. Much to my surprise, the search yielded 0 results.
I then looked around and found an article that talks about google also censoring guns from search results.

Since I haven't done much shopping online, are there any good non censoring web sites left that allow adults to shop and buy things they are legally entitled to buy?

So far all I have is these."

When an LLC fails

the_Bionic_lemming the_Bionic_lemming writes  |  more than 5 years ago

the_Bionic_lemming writes "About a Year ago my father started a LLC with two other partners. He asked me to help get him a web presence so I hosted with an online host and set up their website on the name of their new llc. I created the basics, modded some photo's for them, and then expanded it with custom contact pages and patchworked a decent site for them. I then searched for an easier URL for them to type in and found a catchy one that fit in well with what they are doing. They immediately switched to using this on their t-shirts, coffee mugs, contact cards — etc. Since it was family, I never billed for work as I was to be hired on when it grew to a sustainable level to justify adding a tech department and would receive a good bonus as well. The partners now want to dissolve the llc, kick my dad out, and reform the LLC.

Now, I never got paid for any of this, so my question is, do I still own my code, and more importantly, what are my rights since I want my dad to reform his own company under the URL I purchased and allowed him to use?"

Virgin Galactic Explosion

the_Bionic_lemming (446569) writes "An explosion at an airport home to Scaled Composites — the builder of the first private manned rocket to reach space — killed two people and left four seriously hurt Thursday, a Kern County Fire Department official says. It happened at the Mojave Air and Space Port during a test of a new rocket motor for SpaceShipTwo — a spaceship being built for Virgin Galactic, Richard Branson's space tourism company, a source said. The motor uses nitrous oxide, the source said."
