(If a bit of latency can get you killed in a video game, it cam also get you killed on the operating table.)
I very much doubt these systems are not designed to cope with some latency since there's no such thing as a 100% reliable network. I'm sure not accidentally killing the patient was the number 1 design goal.
This is a good example of why the troll and everyone who replies to him needs reported instantly and ignored.
I think it's a good example of why all replies to a hidden comment should also be hidden. That way the whole waste of time can just be skipped all at once. I started on a greasemonkey script to do that but didn't get around to finishing it.
So $40 for some dance moves and a new gun doesn't seem fair, but it's not worth burning your profile over.
I think it's $20, which is still a ridiculous price, but I agree. I don't mind what they charge, I just won't buy it. It's just rude to offer it they way they did originally: give us 80 bucks for all this stuff you already have if you want the new content. That's basically taking a crap on your loyal fans (which is not the first time they've done that). Offering them as a standalone purchase is better - rolling it in for free with the DLC would be even better than that. If it were $5 I might even consider it.
I should add, my computer science class had us make a game for the 2nd semester and my 5 ppl team did manage to create a game similar to Destiny in Unreal Engine. Less levels and artwork ofc but just to put it in proportians
Are you suggesting that because you could make something similar* but a tiny fraction of the size and that didn't have to stand up to millions of worldwide users, that Bungie should have been able to make Destiny for cheap?
* I'm just guessing your game mechanics were simpler
If it was his personal phone then what right does anyone have to FOI messages from it? These would be personal communications and of no interest to anyone, right?.
If he was using his personal phone to conduct official business, then I think those messages would be subject to FOI requests and generally treated the same as any other official message. You can't escape the FOIA just by using private equipment (though Clinton sure tried).
I suspect you may be underestimating just how bad the previous (or current) system may be, and how long it would take to even get signoff to get access to the old servers, or to find out who actually knows which box the tape backups containing the pre-2014 emails might be sitting in.
It's hard to imagine how it could take 2200 hours even if someone did it manually, let alone writing a program to do it. It's just a relatively small police department, not the IRS or something.
