The Argument Chamber / Re: Trump continued

This summarises neatly EVERYTHING which is wrong with Trump on the world stage but, also why his followers like him so much.

Apparently we Brits like Trump and his immigration policy.

Well, at least Trump can correctly parrot whatever Farage and Johnson have encouraged him to say.

The Argument Chamber / Re: Maine's Election Idea
« on: June 08, 2018, 04:57:58 AM »
This is effectively Maine pursuing a system of proportional representation for voting, which is the system of voting operated by most of the world's forward thinking democracies. Its only backwards nations, like the US and the UK, which still operate unrepresentative FPTP based systems, which are long past the point of being democratic.

The problem with Maine's approach is that is looks to be the PR system known as Alternative Vote, which is quite complicated and probably the worst option for operating PR.

Still, its a start.

I got these to replace my ailing creative headphones.

Affordable, comfortable and good quality sound.

Now I'm confused as fuck.

There's a ban on third party software.
But, some third party software is allowed.

So what's the deal with PlugY and the SPF? Is it an actually an issue the SPF have or is it that the website admin's don't like it?

I remember "back in the day" that Ron (Greybeard) went to the wall to defend the use of ATMA by the SPF, when behind the scenes the Admin and other Mods were discussing that it was a "duping" program and whether to ban its use. That ATMA is still accepted today I suspect is in part to Greybeard sticking to his guns on behalf of the community.

Completed 3030 Deathwar Redux last week. Thoroughly enjoyed it, although the game didn't deliver the "Monkey island" puzzle solving experience alongside space combat as I'd hoped it would. The story remained satisfying until the end, with the lead character refusing to let go of his principle gripe until the last moment. The game has replay value as well, having started a second play through and been able to do things differently this time around, in terms of experiencing story content. A worthwhile buy for the price.

Version switchers, no CD fixes help too. Can post links if you are keen

Would be handy.

I do have a version of the game on the USB stick that came with the D3 collectors edition.

I keep pondering revisiting the glory days of 1.09 but, I don't know if I could get my old disks to work.

Ah Rush, the band.
One of the greatest bands of all time.
Fronted by a bona-fide musical genius.

, that rush was any good, let alone worthy or a major part of it

Is it the same game as previous two?  Meaning climb tower...clear fog...get weapon...find enemy bases...take over enemy base...have new safe house...hunt animals...craft larger/better storage equipment.  Rinse...repeat.

And more side quests that you can shake a stick at.

Sunk many hours in 3030 Deathwar Redux at the weekend.

I really, really like this game.

I got 3030 Deathwar Redux because it was only 7.

Early impressions are its not quite as much "Monkey Island" style point and clickery as I'd like but, the quirkiness is there and I like the graphics a lot. Not sure about space combat yet. Better than I thought it would be but, I've only had one fight so far.

Diablo 3 / Re: Season 13

Inarius set dungeon was a doddle. Completed and mastered in a single go.  Slayer complete, working through the next one, Champion? now, which is simply a matter of attrition.

I rather like the Inarius Bone Armour build I'm using. A magical version of a WW barb in many respects, with an occasional massive burst damage, then back to running around and bone whirlwind  things to death.
