@wemmick:

Hi,

I'm a European software developer, so here's my feedback you didn't ask for:

The ad services in the third-party popup are unrelated to the approval you give on the first black banner. They are checked by default because they are services we've used historically, so that reflects the current state of thing.

To be GDPR compliant data sharing must be opt-in. It doesn't matter what the current state of things is, users must be opted out of data sharing until they themselves have given permission.

They are necessary for us to operate and support our sites with basic ad offerings. Naturally that doesn't apply to GB premium folks who won't see any ad-related tracking.

Providing tailored ads doesn't fall into GDPR acceptable reasons for collecting and sharing data, in fact allowing opting out of ads like these is pretty much one of the main things the regulations are designed to do.

I understand that this seems to be a CBSi developed thing, and the GB team don't have much control over it, but at the moment it's not implemented correctly and isn't compliant.

It's probably for the best, after the whole Hogan V. Gawker debacle the whole network seems to be a sinking ship.

As person about to start their masters in computer science I may be a little biased, but I would steer clear of any game courses and stick to general CompSci. Game schools tend to like to teach whatever technology is hip at the moment and gloss over the fundamental mathematical basis of computing. This means when those technologies become out of date, it is much harder to transition to the new big thing. Comp Sci gives you a foundation to pick up new technology as it comes along.

Another thing to consider is that a game school may not be the best idea if he ever decides to switch careers, ubisoft may give a applicant with a Game Design BA and Computer Science BSc the same attention, but Goldman Sachs probably wont.

Batman as a rule does not kill people, that's pretty much as central to his character as him dressing up as a bat or his parents being dead. You could argue that beating up criminals the way he does leaves then as good as dead, but what you're missing there is that the batman universe isn't our universe, so the rules are different. I think it's safe to assume the physics that allow a 250 pound man to basically fly with a 6 foot wingspan could also allow him to be just so adept at martial arts that the criminals he faces and incapacitated painfully but non life threateningly.

That's not to say he's never killed people, but when he does its always by accident and always a pretty big deal. He will try to save everyone to a fault, including villains. Which inthinknis interesting in the classic would you kill one to save 100 sort of scenario.

With the way most connections nowadays are keyed, I find that if the card fits and has power to it it will tend to work.

I like these tutorials a lot, been watching since the first one, though as a CompSci student, some of his poor coding conventions and GMLs limitations frustrate me quite a bit.

Hi , every once in a while when browsing the forums I'll get redirected to a fake flash update website, which I assume is malware. You probably don't a direct link on the site so here is a pastebin with the URL I'm getting redirected to. http://pastebin.com/vVKvwezm The Giant Bomb forums seem to be the only place this happens.

@polekat: Do you know what ex-patriot means? It's someone who has moved to a different country to live (usually for retirement). For example there are a lot of British ex pats in Spain.

I really don't like Zoe Quinn, (separate from the stupid gamer-gate stuff, since I don't know much about it), but I think something like this would be a good idea if it where headed by qualified professionals, like actual law enforcement and psychologists, (and from the looks of it web designers). Though if this website helps people that can only be a good thing.

I have a 970 and I love it, haven't noticed any coil whine, though I'm probably going to notice it now and it will ruin my life.
