How about when a game you really liked gets a sequel but it never gets localized? Or you get a later entry in the series and find out there's more that have never made it over?

So if ever there was a need for ad blocker NBC is making the case.

My work blocks ads as a security measure so all you get is 100% non stop olympics... When I get home I get TONS of fucking ads ... and they are breaking up the stream to do it and not restarting where they left off ... so during gymnastics for instance ... they cut to commercial during a girls rotation .. when they came back they were showing the next girl ... no clue how the last girl scored.



Fucking NBC

A group taking my pictures without my permission and using them on their web page without showing my name as the photograph. They even took pictures from some photography groups, dewatermarked them and posted them on their webpage.

This makes you really think... all the crazy stuff we think of today, could change in just a few decades.

Here's to hoping Japan invents catgirls before I die

Okay, so I purchased a social game expansion (Tanto Cuore Oktoberfest) at a shop. I later discovered something strange about the purchase, more specifically on the receipt. I had given 30$ prior for the shop to order my item. When I paid for the item, which is 62$ plus taxes, I was supposed to pay for 32$ plus the taxes for the whole cost. When I checked the receipt this morning, I had the surprise to see 4$ more, which were not told about by the seller. Please note that I went to the shop to demand explanations.

I explained the situation to the cashier, showed him the receipt, asked him where it came from, we can clearly see that there was a deposit of 30$, which had been substracted from the total cost. I even asked the cashier a clearer copy of the receipt, which he could not provide me. He even tried to call his boss, which failed at the time.

So the cashier took a decision, refunded me an amount equivalent to what we beleived was taxes taxed for whatever reason.

Now, the boss threatened me to call the cops for 4$, wanted me to do a U-turn on a regional road and waste some oh so precious gas (I'm in the province of Quebec, gas runs around a 1$ the liter here) and all that on my cell phone while I was driving (which can warrant a ticket and a driver's license suspention here).

He claims I made a fraud while all the prob;lems comes from his billing program, which wierdly enough calculate the total price minus the paid amount, plus whatever cost that comes from nowhere, plus the taxes. So now, I'm going to file up a complain to the consumer protection office if needs be and I'm going to contact him cause he's being an ass and he needs to be taught not to mess up his stuff if he wants to be a good seller.

Edit: So called him. Facts: Deposit for purchase can be taxed here, which I did not know and which was not told by the seller (so EB-Games/Gamestop has been raping my ass for some time now, took a decision last year to stop pre-ordering there and glad I took it). Making a clearer receipt would be hard for the seller since his computer would register a fake sale, which caused the problem when I reviewed the receipt. In my head, the maths were 62$+15%=subtotal-30$ while the reality of the maths was (26$+15%)+(36$+15%)=total. So yeah, it's fucked up here and I think it needs to change royally. So on to the medias about the iden aspects of our government. They are wooling us way too much. We have to pay an extra 5 cent for each soda and up to 5$ depending of the reusable container we can return to get the money back, this means they taxes those too. Now I'm angry at the government that's been raping the ass of each and every person here for way too long.

This is a common problem with floating point numbers, it's not Lua but a limitation of how computers represent fractional numbers.

Try rounding your number to a specific precision:

Just sucks to think that if they made a miitomo-like mobile app it would be more popular than this one LOL

But in all seriousness, IMO it's just another chapter of Konami-Kojima drama. He stole Silent Hills project to release as a new IP so Konami returned the favor by rubbing shit at his most precious creation (again).

Trying to find a decent way to create a simple tile-based "game" in Visual Studio.

By tile based, do you mean like a top view game like final fantasy 6 or do you mean something else?

I'd assume he means like tactics/strategy kind of game. Having cursor and objects snapping from tile to tile instead of moving freely.

Stupid work day was shitty as I had guessed it would end up. So I had to pass the day, deciding for my side of the floor what to do all day with a 15 YO girl (who also happens to be slutty since she doesn't hesitate to say she lost her virginity and speak of her last fucks, not the kind of woman that grab my attention) and a 17 YO young woman. Nothing too hard to do, just cutting veggies and fruits as well as making some salads. Decision was, we end all that for mealtime. Reallity is harsh, the 17YO is slow as it cannot be humanelly possible (took her around 4 hours just to make two dezens of fruit salad, which should normally take maximum 2 hours, she also went eating around 13:45, which would put us in deep shit AND she did not listen to one of my instruction, which was skip some of the production since tehre was aparently enough) while the 15YO, which also has a tendency to stop working when speaking or slow down when she does not want to do something was talking back on some of my decisoins to try and save the day! Told her at around 9:50 10 minutes to end what she was doing and she said no. I ened up eating at 12:40 when I was supposed to go eat at 12! No professional conciense and lack of care made this a really bad day. It seems I was the only one that cared about the production being done well.

Working 10 hour shift without lunch.

-Issue from this morning took 4 hours to figure out
-Had to help at trainee for about an hour and a half since a system admin had a stick up his ass about a required emergency install
-2.5 hours looking into an email issue
-And about an hour for misc. shit

And it doesn't help my morale has been shit this week due to personal problems/finding out my company is making cuts and I'm skeptical about when they set their sights on internal assets
