Has anyone ever found anything that broke the game?

I remember making potions that eventually were so strong the time went from in-game years to plain dropping off the description. Nothing says game spoilers quite like having strength so high it shows as negative, and likewise increasing agility means you can never jump outdoors again.

I have a new character work flow where you have 1k gold, exquisite ring, mushrooms and flowers needed when leaving to Balmora, blow through the first block of Mage's Guild in one visit, join everything else and grab conjuration/teleportation spells, world hop for ten minutes culminating in having Azura's Star and both Daedra and Golden Saint summons before second level.

Fatigue or not fatigue?

Has anyone ever come across or come up with an explanation for the Elder Scrolls green bar?

It seems it took five games before they started calling it stamina. Has anyone been able to justify running out of fatigue causing fatigued behavior?

While trying to find a native way to get the Start Menu at work I once again ponder why MS chose the names they did, and why they didn't try saving Vista from being another dirty word (like twilight).

Anyone else think this might have gone over better?
Vista (6.0)
Vista SE (6.1)
Vista Touch (6.2)
Vista Touch SE (6.3)
Vista Fuck;My Bad (6.4)

That last one really is inevitable, what with the character stepping.

Windows 8.1 question:

I haven't Windows very much over the last seven years, and am trying to make a simple backup system.

So we are getting new 8.1 laptops rolled out at work, and are being told that any data we want to keep needs to be kept on the network as the hdd is now going to be encrypted and IT will not have the ability to retrieve anything in the case of disk failure. I had set something up on my old W7 machine in preparation (seemed to work at the time), but I just brought the new clamshell home to test off of the network and cannot open outlook.

Currently I have a folder on a network share I set to Available Off-line, within I added a hidden folder containing various points I want to save (Contacts, Documents, Desktop, Favorites, Links, Pictures, etc., AppData\Local\Microsoft\(office/outlook/internet explorer/others), AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Microsoft\(similar list)), renamed/deleted the local folders, and symlinked from the network folder to local. This way when I am on the network everything is up to date, when I am off-site I still have access locally, and when I reconnect the local data is synced to the network.

Is this the best method to keep things backed up, or are there other methods available now that would be better? I'm going to try starting over when I get back to work and see if I somehow messed something up and setting everything up over again will clear up the issue. If I could store the data locally I'd just set up a cron job to rsync the folders to one of my servers nightly, but I'm not keeping sensitive files.

Thanks,

I generally have trouble linking anything to anyone, so I just post public then copy link to other threads.

Apperently Ubuntu proper doesn't have controls for touchpads? I'm not sure, I solved that problem in 2012 by not using Unity.

Are there any equivalents to gellcaps in the Pathfinder setting, and what would you expect the outcome to be from ingesting dust of dryness?

A magical pill that has an instant death spell cast on it.

I found some issues with the formulas in Combat. Useful data:
Paladin 3 levels
Strength 20
Dexterity 16
Feat - Power Attack
Feat - Dodge
+1 Breastplate
+1 Buckler
MW Longsword

Buckler unequipped, Longsword one-handed
Actual
Atk 7
Dm 5
AC 21
Power Attack
Atk 6
Dm 7
AC 21

Expected
Atk 9
Dm 5
AC 21
Power Attack
Atk 8
Dm 7
AC 21

Buckler unequipped, Longsword two-handed
Actual
Atk 7
Dm 5
AC 21
Power Attack
Atk 6
Dm 10
AC 21

Expected
Atk 9
Dm 7

Buckler equipped, Longsword one-handed

Dm 10
AC 23

Expected
Atk 8
Dm 7
AC -20- 21
Power Attack
Atk 7
Dm 10
AC -20- 21

Guessing at issues since I can't find a report would be:
1 - BAB used is 1 instead of 3 in all cases (lvl 3 Pal)
2 - one-handed weapon wielded in two hands should be treated as two-handed weapon for StrMod to damage and Power Attack damage
3 - full implementation of Buckler includes +0 AC and -1 Attack when wielding with off hand (two-handed weapon, one-handed wielded two hands, one-handed/light in off hand, bow/crossbow)
EDIT: on second thought I think the Buckler AC should be limited to dropping natural AC not magical bonuses, or perhaps just retain non +n enhancements.

I remember nearly losing my shit in physics lecture when the professor stated that "strong force is strong", and becoming quite frustrated when I realized noone else caught it. They were all "Oh, yes. If the strong force holds neutrons together it must be very strong indeed."

+Kevin Guinn Well, yes, but that's self evident. The unintentional longcat meme was the amusing part.

What does "Next Gen Console" mean?

From all the comments I've been seeing over the last year, I'm not sure if I've just not been paying attention, or if people don't know how to English.

Installing OEM edition

Does anyone have a link to instructions, or else know how to install the OEM editions properly for the 17/17.1 releases? I cannot find any command or executable to install from the live environment to hard disk.

I found I could run ubuquity manually, but that runs the normal installer and makes the OEM different from codec free version only in not having a shortcut for ubuquity. And the "run this to finalize changes" doesn't seem like a logical step from live as rebooting would lose all changes without writing install to disk.

I know I've posted this before, but there doesn't seem to be any useful documentation and it seems like a function that is worth another bump.

which package in there allows the OEM install?

I've worked out that MultiSystem must have striped out whatever is triggered when the OEM is started, just not what to run to make it work.
