He’s made a life at gaming, and I understand his desire to paper over and get back to work, and ride out his ban. Nor do I blame the casters and other players who have chosen to stick through this. If it was my job, I probably would too. Read more

Lots of gaming websites (not typically for porn, but still). I even get a “patch your Firefox now!!!!11!!” pop up if I leave Talking Points Memo open for too long without using ad block. Read more

They did repost an earlier Splinter article on vulture capitalism on all the other sites, which was a wonderful move, I thought.

He also pointed out that he has enough options to do this, (He’d only been on one week of grandmasters this season anyway, as a fill-in) and that folks shouldn’t pile on other casters that don’t make the same decision, because not everyone has as many options.

While this is a civil trial rather than a criminal one, the burden of proof (though lighter) is still on the accuser. If I say a product made me sick, but don’t provide any proof, or even proof that I was sick, should the manufacturer have to prove that they’re not the cause?

No, it’s the plaintiff’s responsibility to prove harm. The defendant can then argue against the specific allegations. They can’t prove the negative of “no harm.” Read more

Also: Re-evaluate the project as a whole after every stretch goal is added.  I’ve seen so many projects that got caught up in the rush of going viral and shot themselves in the foot by overpromising, when their initial goals were achievable.

It hasn’t been quick. Republican-controlled senates since at least the Clinton administration have drug their feet on (or simply refused to act on) judicial nominations from Democratic presidents, and have fast tracked appointments from Republican presidents (especially in the Trump administration, where the Read more

I have never preordered a limited edition of a popular game and not seen that preorder canceled weeks, sometimes days before release.  These sites sell far above what they can actually get, and then leave you hanging when the manufacturer doesn’t ship them as many as they sold.

Am I the only one waiting for Cosby’s estate to go full time to paying off lawsuits or charity or something, so I can listen to his comedy albums again with a clear conscience?  I mean, I don’t want to foot his lawyer bill, but Noah was funny. Read more

The contract with Netflix that restricts using the characters for 2 years after the show airs. Some reports say they can’t even start development of anything involving these characters until that exclusivity period is up, which would push new shows later. Read more
