    00:00-00:40 Intro

    00:40-01:30 Discussion about Dan getting his picture taken.

    01:30-02:15 Dan did a wedding. Did not do the bride. A rather humorous stumble in there :)

    02:15-04:00 Rob's internet, IPv6 and Gigabits... lots of glorious gigabits

    04:00-05:15 How long it takes to upload a video (and how much faster it would be with a Google Gigabit connection)

    05:15-07:30 Dan found a Dune worm t-shirt and, yes, he shares a link where you can get your own.

    07:30-15:40 FTL, computer room security, Borderlands 2

    15:40 "Get ready with the news opener because we gotta get into the show here."

    16:05-17:35 Intro

    17:35-21:35 City of Heroes is shutting down

    21:35-1:47:34 lots of gaming industry news from the past 6 months to present

     

    It's lo-o-o-ong, so put it on and play it in the background while you're doing stuff. 46 minutes in so far. It's refreshing to hear a gamer discussion that isn't raging about how everything is "fail", how the latest 2 DPS change to class X has completely made them OP/useless, or how developers are incompetent/greedy/lazy/etc.

    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein

    So what were the supposed reasons?

    They seem to think that CoH is being killed because of Richard Garriot's lawsuit against NCsoft. I gotta say that this notion is a new one to me. Not the lawsuit, the idea that it was responsible for offing CoH.

    Thanks for the info.  I don't know enough to even comment.

    I really can't figure where they're coming from on this one. Garriot sued and won (initally) in 2010. NCsoft appealed it and lost again, almost a year ago (Oct. 26). The idea that it had much to do with Paragon Studios being abruptly shuttered on the Labor Day weekend seems a bit absurd.
