'4chan may be just a sysadmin who knows his way around', claims so-called expert


Re: 4chan is a sysadmin

He's also done TED talks, and a, pretty interesting, AMA on Reddit. He's hardly a secret, why would you make these comments. :|

Waiting gamer slams no-show show: E3 – was that it?


Thank god

you mentioned the amazing change Watch Dogs went through from E3 to release, it looks like ass compared to what was originally shown and that's what E3 mostly is to me these days, a bunch of Bullshots to get me hyped at least in years past you knew what you were getting, I don't remember Quake going through a dramatic change to make it look like shit from what was shown in years past.

I'm trying hard not to get excited about Doom after that super cool Cyber Demon reveal.

Re: Fuck them all

He got pissed off over a poor performance report and decided to get the finger to his company.

Admirable? Sure.

I am surprised at the outcome ? No, using the services of a company you are leaking information about... really.

I wonder what his book will be called, "how I got common sense beat into me" perhaps.

Watch Dogs: Eat, sleep, hack, repeat


Decent idea, with no polish. Would not pay full price and for the bugs and quriks that exist with the amount of hype this has generated since last years E3 its left me disappointed

Also, Not sure if people have seen people remark/videos of the werid and wacky physics of the game. E.g. Car lauched in the air and stopped dead by a kerb on the landing. Pretty disappointing.

Re: Street Fighter

Eh, just realised the quality on that is even worse than I first thought.

This article reminded me of this classic street fighter moment, the famous(kinda?) "beast is unleashed" moment from EVO tournie years back.

OnePlus One equals 'killer' new mobe running CyanogenMod


Having had this discussion in work a few times for me personally I like to DL my Spotify playlists, which are many. It ate through the internal memory quick. Not to mention, memory capacity is still increasing and developers are still managing to make megabytes worth of crap for simple tasks. So yeah, why not just throw in a slot? It's hardly going to break your design.

Security researchers uncover three-year-old 'RUSSIAN SPYware'


Re: Which OS?

here it is from the linked article,

Uroburos supports 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Windows systems. Due to the complexity of this malware and the supposed spying techniques used by it, we assume that this rootkit targets governments, research institutes, or/and big companies.

Google, Microsoft to drop child sex abuse from basic web search



I am staggered, not that trying to clean up the internet from illegal material is a bad thing, but who the hell is going to Google or Microsoft to search for it?

Surely if this was the case it wouldn't be hard for either of those two companies to identify that this is happening and forward that information on to the relevant authorities.

This is propaganda for mumsnet, this does nothing to stop the wider issue of stopping child abuse issues on the internet.

A startup could've made a better Obamacare site, says CloudFlare boss


I've actually been on the receiving end of this pay scale crap. Interesting to know why I was.


still not sure why governments don't have their own development houses, not that I'm saying that would make every government project fantastic but it gets tiresome to hear about how X many contractors were brought in or Y amounts outsourced to make a frigging website.

Brit ISPs ordered to add more movie-streaming websites to block list


I'm curious how big they are in the whole grand scheme of piracy. I've never heard of the majority of them. You'll be doing this a long time trying to take down the small websites, and the bigger ones will just get more and more proxies for access. Yes, another well thought out plan.

Which isn't necessarily a bad thing but I don't think it's worth the £40 price tag it currently has, maybe £30, £25 more of that area I would recommend buying it at. Considering there isn't that many new assets and whatnot.

Netflix dares UK freetards: Watch new Breaking Bad NOW or torrent it?


Re: I must be getting old

I don't think shows are picked for TV based on their adverts. Not to mention when it was on UK TV I don't remember any song or dance about it, when say compared to Suits (which is a good show, but basically chewing gum) were Dave went balls to the wall and helped dispel the myth that had - "if its on Dave its a repeat or shit."

I just question why is such a massive American TV show never made it across, nearly every other other has in some form (The Wire, Mad Men, The Sopranos, Lost etc. etc.) and Breaking Bad is right up there among those other highly recieved shows. Not all those shows were on terrestrial TV but I'd believe most people would have heard of them in some form. r


Re: I must be getting old

I am still gobsmacked that it was never aired in the UK, think C5 may have showed the first series, it's a great well acted, well written show. It gets rave reviews in the USA but somehow was never suited to the UK market (unlike a load of other crap)

It's not a bad stop off for tourists in Tunisia having been to the A New Hope set. There isn't much else between civilisation and the Sahara.


Re: Divine Justice

The article fails to mention the follow,
