And we now have another reason to hate Flash Player.

Alright everyone, it's time to update Flash Player (again) and your web browser if you're using Chrome or IE on Windows 8, thanks to CVE 2015-3113. Or, you could just uninstall Flash Player altogether, as that is a valid option...

It's much more doable now in 2015 then it was a few years ago, though.

Valve and Bethesda pocket the lion's share of paid mod proceeds.

Bethesda and Valve are working together on this. However, it looks like all that's happened is that everyone's been made mad (just go take a cursory look at /r/skyrimmods on Reddit), no one will be buying the crap from the Workshop, et cetera.

Also, there is a petition to get this undone and Skyrim's rating on Steam has already fallen 8% and basically all the reviews are "paid mods are stupid". I don't think that trend will stop anytime soon.

While Bethesda and Valve are companies and want to make as much money as possible, this move is just stupid. Oh, also, for the record, due to the way Bethesda programmed the resource identification system in Skyrim, there is literally no way to enable more than 256 mods at one time! So, people who buy stuff from the new piece-of-crap Workshop will eventually find that they can't use what they paid for!

The following was found on my Reddit frontpage a few moments ago, and I've also posted the following to Facebook for those not on Google+.

HECK YEAH! BBC confirms new Doctor Who episodes for a minimum of five more years (e.g. 2020), which effectively CONFIRMS Series 13 as of this instant (which would put us at a total of 39 seasons and roughly 878 episodes).

THANK YOU BBC!

That scares me, as Moffat's been showrunner since the beginning of Series 5, and they're filming Series 9 (?) right now. That's half that time.

I hope that the BBC doesn't make the same stupid mistake yet again.

Hey all, just a quick question: My current phone contract ends next month. I'm looking for a phone that has the following features:

1) Extendable/removable battery
2) micrtoSD/SD card slot for extendable memory
3) minimum of 32GB internal storage
4) "Negative Colors" feature (e.g. can invert colors of screen)
5) Work on T-Mobile
6) minimum 5" screen (measured diagonally)
If there is any metal on the device, it must be able to be covered with a case as I am allergic to most cheap metal alloys (e.g. they make me develop a rash).

I'll look at any device that meets the conditions above. And thanks in advance for taking the time to help me find my next new phone!

Good idea. yeah I'd say walk into a store and explain that you need an inverse  color capable phone.

I've already listened to this song at least a dozen times. Then again, when I saw it was on YouTube, my Roku reported it had been uploaded only ten hours beforehand. Oh well. Thanks for yet another wonderful song, Gavin!

So, for those who are interested, if we can get enough players, a Heroes of Rokugan III game is scheduled for 2/27 at 6pm Central Time. Note that this session will probably last at least four hours.

The GMs contact info is: troutninja@gmail.com

Post here if you're interested. We need a total of 4-7 players for this to happen.

FYI: WebRTC allows the exposure of both your public and private IP addresses. The demo at https://diafygi.github.io/webrtc-ips/ shows this off. Be as paranoid as you want, but knowing this exists is a good thing for security-minded people.
Demo for: https://github.com/diafygi/webrtc-ips. This demo secretly makes requests to STUN servers that can log your request. These requests do not show up in developer consoles and cannot be blocked by browser plugins (AdBlock, Ghostery, etc.).

This was found on Reddit, and since it's from /r/science, was on my frontpage at one point.I don't typically browse the science subreddit, I just subscribe to it so that I see epically cool things like thishttp://www.eso.org/public/news/eso1513/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+EsoTopNews+%28ESO+Top+News%29
For the first time, astronomers have detected the presence of complex organic molecules, the building blocks of life, in a protoplanetary disc surrounding a young star. The discovery, made with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), reaffirms that the conditions that spawned the Earth and Sun are not unique in the Universe. The results are published in the 9 April 2015 issue of the journal Nature.

Yet another Reddit frontpage item. This one won't be going over to FB as I don't think there's many over there that use Linux.

TL;DR: A Chinese company issues false security certs. Remove the certs. Also, you should probably just block them as a CA as well while you're at it, to be sure they don't slip new false certs in later.

The real legacy of SimCity is its attempt—and failure—to make complex systems the protagonists instead of people.

I disagree that the characters are always some burly dude with a 'tude. Two of the examples they use in the article contradict themselves. Mario was a short/fat plumber without a prayer of besting Kong or Koopa without being resourceful and link was a young kid way out of his element with Gannon requiring many heart containers of training before getting anywhere near the guy. Finally, wtf, no Samus from metroid?  As for Maxis closing, that is a shame, heck they were in my building here in Emeryville.SimCity was great, but the role you played was the Mayor and just because it wasn't the mayor jumping on the screen to avoid traffic (the frogger minigame that should have been), that doesn't mean you weren't embezzling funds and building the city of your dreams. 

Finally, no mention of Civilization or warlords 2 when discussing this type of game?

WHAT!??? A SSD took almost 2.5PB of writes before crashing permanently? Wow.

http://techreport.com/review/27909/the-ssd-endurance-experiment-theyre-all-dead
I never thought this whole tech journalism gig would turn me into a mass murderer. Yet here I am, with the blood of six SSDs on my hands, and that's not even the half of it. You see, these were not crimes of passion or rage, nor were they products of accident. More than 18 months ago, ...

Yes. 1PB = 1000TB (1PiB = 1024TiB). It's the next step up from terabytes. (Yes, I'm showing the difference between base-10 and base-2 sizes there.)

The fact that in the last twenty years, we've gone from thinking a megabyte was a big thing to commonly throwing around terabytes and looking at petabytes as the next highest storage denominator is kind of a crazy thing (since 1TB = 1,000,000MB).

And yes, this experiment set out to destroy six SSDs. However, it also showed us that a consumer-grade SSD (e.g. a SSD I can buy off the shelf at Best Buy or Amazon for a reasonable price) can last a lifetime. That's wonderful, as I wouldn't normally expect such durability from consumer-grade hardware like this. Enterprise-grade or NAS-grade hardware? I'd expect more, but probably not petabytes of writes off a measly 240-256GB disk.

Psted this in the L5R RPG group, but I figured I wouid also post it here just in case anyone here is interested.

So, for those who are interested, if we can get enough players, a Heroes of Rokugan III game is scheduled for 2/27 at 6pm Central Time. Note that this session will probably last at least four hours.
