When I write about prolonged bad behavior in the legal system, I often get angry comments from people who say “when will the system impose consequences on people who act this way?” Take heart, I respond. The wheels grind slowly, but they grind. “Bullshit,” comes the response. “Prove it.”
Very well. How about an order requiring Charles Carreon to pay $46,100.25 in attorney fees?
AHAHAHAHAH This is awesome. Suck it, Charles Carreon, you asshat.
Except it was supposed to be a 71K fine before Carreon whined and complained about Financial hardship.
Exceptionally irritated at a company I’ve been previously enthusiastic about. Contacted them privately to give them an opportunity to fix the issues I’ve had. Should a resolution not be forthcoming, I shall unleash the power of a negative social media presence.
“In 2008 in San Diego, a 7-year-old boy whose parents refused vaccines contracted measles while on a family trip to Switzerland. Before realizing how sick he was, the boy went to school and infected four other kids at school, after having already infected his two siblings. He…
How to connect to Twitch.TV/Justin.tv/Gamebreaker.tv chat rooms via IRC
Like many people, I enjoy joining Live Show’s Chat rooms but I look for ways to persist my connection so I can see what’s going on in the channel without using the weak chat window. So in the spirit of “getting my way” here’s how you splice in to IRC for twitchTV, JustinTV, and GamebreakerTV.
Understand that this is simply my thoughts about the whole FunnyJunk/The Oatmeal/Charles Carreon situation. In no way does this posting represent the thoughts of my employer or anybody associated with me.
Since FunnyJunk and their lawyer, Charles Carreon, have not scampered back under the rock they crawled out from, has there been any thought of going after their livelyhoods in the same manner that they went after The Oatmeal?
I’ll be appearing at the Atlantic Technologies in Education Forum in Washington D.C. on Tuesday. I’m taking part in what looks to be a really interesting panel on the roll teachers play in game-based learning. My panel starts at 10:25.
Group A want to be notified whenever anybody makes a change in requirements. Group B wants to be notified whenever anybody makes a change in requirements. Neither group wants to talk to the other. I’m caught in the middle trying to serve both sides. Can’t a distribution list be created to have all parties on the same page in terms of communication? it feels like a giant tug of war with my priorities…
Peeking behind the curtain (of broadcasting a Podcast)
After two friends asked how I do the broadcasting and playing of a few shows that I live broadcast, I thought I’d sit down and explain how I have it set up for Windows
XSplit - Allows you to latch on to various prcess GUI displays so you can broadcast the game view without having other aspects you don’t want, also does simple titles and Screen Area grabs. Also allows you to broadcast on Ustream, Twitch.tv, and more
Virtual Audio Cable - Allows you to define many different virual audo cables as you want. Also allows you to repeat the audio off one “line” into annother one
VLC - Allows you to play almost anything. Has the side benefit of being able to channel the audio into a specific output
Skype - Important for piecing the show participants together
Bright light city gonna set my soul, Gonna set my soul on fire
So, to cope with the lack of a Blizzcon this Year, my good friend @Stompalina got together the notion that we should throw a big blowout of a community party. We took a very uncientific vote and settled on Las Vegas for where we wanted to go. I hadn’t really planned on any real vacation this year so this is going to be my big get away this year. So from October 17th to the 22nd I’m going to party my brains out and be vacationing. If you’re interested in doing a World of Warcraft Community thing, take a look a the Facebook page for all the details.
“Those who count on quote ‘Hollywood’ for support need to understand that this industry is watching very carefully who’s going to stand up for them when their job is at stake. Don’t ask me to write a check for you when you think your job is at risk and then don’t pay any attention to me when my job is at stake,”
This certainly follows what many people assumed was happening, and fits with the anonymous comments from studio execs that they will stop contributing to Obama, but to be so blatant about this kind of corruption and money-for-laws politics in the face of an extremely angry public is a really, really, really tone deaf response from Dodd.
Wow. Chris Dodd is not only an asshole, he’s a stupid, tone deaf asshole.
It shows, yet again, that he just doesn’t get it. People were protesting not just because of the content of these bills, but because of the corrupt process of big industries like Dodd’s “buying” politicians and “buying” laws. To then come out and make that threat explicit isn’t a way to fix things or win back the public. It’s just going to get them more upset, and to recognize just how corrupt this process is. If Dodd, as he said in yesterday’s NY Times, really wanted to turn things around and come to a more reasonable result, this is exactly how not to do it
Not that it matters, and not that I’m some kind of rich mogul, but I’ll say this again: I have lost more money to creative accounting, and American workers have lost more jobs to runaway production, than anything associated with what the MPAA calls piracy. Chris Dodd is lying about piracy costing us jobs. Hollywood’s refusal to adapt to changing times is what’s costing the studios money. That’s it.
