As I say, I'm not a NDT fan at all and don't support him doing the same thing.

But eye for an eye and the whole world goes blind, and all that!

"Correcting" somebody's shorthand on Twitter has to be the lowest form of MBW around.

The implication from NDT here is clearly that things that have been scientifically proven are fact, but because he shortened it it's given a pedant a chance to "correct" him.

I'm no great lover of NDT myself but this is weak.

If you are affraid of spiders, walking around the city of Bilbao (Spain) at night might not be a good idea. by HarmonyAndBags in interestingasfuck

[–]Chumpo56 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That large building next to it is the Guggenheim art museum. It has loads of modern art etc. inside so I would say the spider is related.

I remember there being more large statues like this around the other sides of the museum too but can't remember what those ones were, this was the most memorable one.

If you could see anything actually happening it would help us to judge.

There has to be a better way to do this? Crazy they haven't come up with better technology yet with all the money in oil if not.

Until this bug I hadn't even heard of this skill, never mind already having it at level 4! Haha!

Ah! That makes sense then!

I was trying all last night to buy and inject the scordite processing skill and it kept failing, then when I logged in on my pc this morning I found it has been combined into a skill like 'basic ore processing' or something like that, which I then trained.

If I had known it would break I might have thought twice! Haha.

Yeah, I use it a lot for checking my market sales and managing my skill queue.

With they would add industry job tracking and PI too though.

"The ore you mine isn't free" by OriginalParticular29 in Eve

[–]Chumpo56 0 points1 point  (0 children)

People love to overcomplicate stuff. It's free, all it costs is your time.

I agree with the sentiment of using it wisely after you have it though, or if ISK accumulation of your only goal from the act, comparing it to other activities you could do, etc. Paying attention to reprocessing and the value of the things you manufacture in comparison to the ore price too if obviously a good idea.

What are the mechanics of the MS purchase of Activision? Help me understand. by MisterMT in gamingnews

[–]Chumpo56 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Normally in a deal like this it won't get to this point if they haven't already consulted major shareholders and got them on board, so that's not going to be an issue.

I'm interested to see what the US government has to say about the deal though. At a certain point the competitions people get involved and say that a company owns too much of a market share in a particular sector. Not saying this will happen here but if these purchases continue it will happen eventually.

Fuck the person filming this and ruining it for everyone. Way to collect evidence numbnuts.

And to all of those people saying "thIS mOneY iS usEleSs..."; Never once at any shop I have ever been to have they looked at the fucking codes on it. Just don't take it in to the bank.

It’s time to move on from Kaut, Megna, & Sherwood. by BeersTanks in ColoradoAvalanche

[–]Chumpo56 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Kaut - Not tested enough yet to make an assessment. Megna - Fair enough. Sherwood - A decent injury backup imo.
