Comment Re:Piracy has cost me plenty (Score 1) 36

Piracy has saved me plenty. I try to try before I buy. Last time I got burned was Doom 3. Played about 4 hours and hated it. Have not played it since. I downloaded Civilization 6 and what not pleased with it. Deleted the game and saved myself $59.99.

Though consumers want demos, it is not financially wise for publishers to release them. If a consumer tries a demo and dose not like the games, then that is a lost sale. If the consumer has to buy to try and the consumer hates it, then the publisher got their money and another pissed off customer

nominees for state and federal positions become pathological liars during campaign time. Once elected they follow the demands of their largest financial providers. By the time the next election comes around, the people have forgotten how much of a pathological liar the politician is and once again believe their lofty claims of utopia.

That is how Scientology works. "The purpose of the suit is to harass and discourage rather than win. The law can be used very easily to harass, and enough harassment on somebody who is simply on the thin edge anyway, well knowing that he is no authorized, will generally be sufficient to cause his professional decease. If possible, or course, ruin him utterly" - L. Ron Hubbard, The Scientologist, a Manual on the Dissemination of Material, 1955

Comment My family’s data protection plan (Score 1) 229

My family’s data protection plan involves and off-site backup to my parent’s home and vice versa. Each week, we establish a VPN between our homes and do an incremental backup of photos, home videos, and important documents to an external HDD at each home. This prevents loss in case of natural disaster or fire.
