I just love code.

I will keep loving code until the day I build an AI and it kills us all.

Then I'll probably rethink this whole code thing.

comment Should I always equip a weapon in my free hand, even if it is a weak one?
Yeah, im an Alchemist. Basically I'm just wondering if say I have a wand that's 100 DPS, and another that's 50 DPS. If I use just the 100, i'd expect 100 DPS, but if I use both, is it 150, or 75? In other words, does wand A fire more often if I have a free hand?

comment When I buy a game, what do I actually pay for?
If you think about game reviews, they include lots of actual gameplay video, but they have commentary. I'm sure a game company would like the ability to order people to take down negative reviews of their games on a copyright basis, but they can't. Well, maybe they could get away with it they tried, but then no one will review their games, and no press is bad press.

Did you ever construct the spider mech? I thought that was one of the bugs.

Did you play game fully patched? I know there were some bugs around certain quests and certain schematics, but I think the community patches sorted those out?

Which games work well in crossover? They seem to have a good list of business apps on their site for the 'Crossover Linux' impersonator, but no list for the 'Crossover Games' impersonator. I'm mostly interested in steam games like Company of Heroes, Team Fortress 2, SupCom 2, Torchlight, etc. Do you find that crossover plays well with most of these types of games?

Thanks for the quick response. I realize now that my question was a little vague. I can probably get Steam running ok ubuntu, but it's going to come down to a game by game issue after that. I might actually go for crossover if it comes to it. Right now I love ubuntu, and games and adobe CS5 are the only things keeping me on windows.
