I know that there's "two sides to every story", but does that mean that both sides have to be given the same weight in consideration? 

First up, this article linked here. It's not the article I'm concerned about because the Mars One project was reveled to be a bunch of crap, and that was a while ago so this "news" is kinda old...and irrelevant. 

Second, the short version is that this woman was supposedly selected to go to Mars with the project. Her husband says he's OK with this because "this was bigger than me". He viewed it as a unique opportunity for his wife, and was OK with that. 

I broke the First Rule of the Internet, and read the comments. I always HOPE that people are being sarcastic and don't actually fully believe the stuff they write in these spur of the moment opportunities, but geezus...

"I think her husband wants to get rid of her!!"

"Till death do us part not "till Mars do we depart""

"So they’re perfectly content to take a one-way trip to Mars? Well then, in the words of Ebenezer Scrooge, “they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population!” But 2026 is a long time to wait, maybe they can book an earlier flight."

"I feel it is selfish of her as a wife and a mother and also wrong as a society."

"I say she isn't in love with that man. I couldn't leave someone I'm in love with for a trip like this"

"Typical selfish liberal nutjob....."

"I personally find this so horrible. She is willing to leave her kids behind, as well as her husband, but the kids? What kind of a B*tch does that? And why would they pick anyone with a family, male or female. Just Terrible!"

WHY THE HATE?! Why the selfish, one sided view of the world? How is it OK for two people to mutually agree to enter into marriage, but not OK for two people to mutually agree to separate for what both of them consider to be a good greater than either of them?

We are going to hell on a Slip and Slide of absolute and unmitigated stupidity, people. 
"We’re just an ordinary married couple in an extraordinary situation."

Since this is veering WAY off topic, I'm closing the thread. Thanks for participating.

" Xbox Streaming; #Skyforge Fails Continue" - virtual gaming, and shitty customer care.

Xbox Streaming My one big hope for Windows 10 and Xbox One streaming was that I’d be able to carry my Surface Pro around with a spare XB1 controller, settle down anywhere in the house, and play games from the XB1. Sadly, I have to report that it’s been an…

I am generally enjoying Windows 10 overall, but almost all of the new extra features seem half-baked, half-complete.

I am surprised that there seems to be two crowds on opinions with the OS. There's the extremely (overly) positive press calling it the best Windows evar, ignoring these flaws. Then there's the very negative press that make it sound worse than Windows 8. I think it's somewhere in between.

I say surprised because I'd grown accustomed to tamer views about Windows versions. Usually it's just "oh, what software do I have to check for compatibility?"  Up until Windows 8 it never seemed very polarized.

Guys....Go fix this NOW. The DEFAULT is to share updates OVER THE INTERNET, turning your system into a seeder. I'm OK with doing this on the local network, but Microsoft has Azure; they can foot the bill on this one.

Jokes on you! You can play it right now, and its been available since it's first go at a KS campaign. It's good that old school EQ feel to it and had a LOT of depth already.

"Windows 10" - My initial experiences, and the benefits of upgrading.

Windows 10 was released yesterday, to great fanfare relatively little fanfare. We users on Windows 7 or 8.x have been staring at that tray icon that allowed us to reserve a free copy for several months now, and although there was no official time given…

It took me a night's sleep to remember the name of the other game this reminds me of for some reason: Cosmic Wimpout.

So the verdict was the network driver. I had to download it from the mfr website because the one MS wanted to use (and told me was "up to date") was absolute shit. 

Managed to download Skyforge without issue. 

Deleted all the soundcard crap, so here's hoping that's taken care of as well.
