    Amazon's a bad place to work....

    I feel bad for the folks who work there. Sheds some light on things too. http://gawker.com/at-amazon-even-the-part-timers-are-miserable-1576194529?utm_campaign=socialflow_gawker_facebook&utm_source=gawker_facebook&utm_medium=socialflow

    arma 3 king of the hill fps issues

    I'm lucky to break 15fps in KotH matches with more than 40 players, but with sub-30 populations it's pretty smooth. My computer also crashes a lot with A3 on the bigger servers.

    LAZORS! Weaponized LAZORS!

    Yes, it's a militarized XBOX controller, replete with roll cage and safety toggles.

    Bing bang BASH. Unix Strikes Again!

    So apparently the entire Unix/Linux world has fallen victim to a BASH/SH bug that allows an attacker to run any command they want on networked BASH-based consoles: http://www.engadget.com/2014/09/24/bash-shell-security-flaw/ Lock up yo' chillens' and hide yo' mama, cause there's no telling how many devices/Unix variants are vulnerable. Especially your webcam.

    I'm not dead! But I did do a Watch Dogs review.

    Did you see this when you were making the video? www.dotconnexion.com Does that factor into the game somehow?

    Well done. You convinced me not to like Watch Dogs by the 22:55 marker.

    Frozen Synapse on sale

    What ya think? It's too late for your opinion mwahahaha. I got the game and it kicks ass. Some logical inconsistencies but designed for a bit of fun too. Got a riot shield unit? Ok, you can bounce grenades off his shield to explode-dead an enemy around a corner. Or depending on your level of fail, explode-dead your team. Office buildings were clearly not designed with rockets in mind- forget anything you ever heard about cover in the game, cause a rocket will blow right through it. Fortunately with the sequence simulator it is possible to dodge the rocket blast radius.

    So basically you have 2200 people, that makes expenditures roughly $100 each. Come back when you have a million dollar battle!

    Turtle Beach

    It's a great system, don't get me wrong, but their quality control has simply SUCKED. There's nothing like opening a brand-new warranty replacement and finding out that there's no way it could have passed a real QC inspection. (I'm pretty sure there was manufacturing debris lodged behind the right speaker, limiting movement and thereby sound)

    Turtle Beach

    Well, the warranty on my XP7's expired last week. 4 headsets in a one year period, many defects related to poor quality control on the headphones themselves. Turtle Beach makes a great ACU (audio control unit) and have decent tech support (I've spent $100 shipping back broken headsets now). So my latest Sierra/XP7 headset bites the dust, quietly and with no fanfare during a movie: Fortunately since the design of the system is so good, I can ditch the sub-par headsets and find me something quality to plug into the ACU. :)

    Turtle Beach

    I think it's all in my head. Those high-frequency electronic discharges and all seem to be melting things. So far all my headsets have lead an easy life, head>desk>head>desk>head...etc. This last headset just quietly folded over on my head, both sides still work but it's resting on the plastic block instead of the cushion. Now I get to peruse the Crutchfield magazine for whatever headset looks best...most of what I'm liking is in the deep $$$ range though.

    Lol, they're on version 7.2 now. The boot sequence isn't much different though.
