I imagine the re-release of Aladdin next year just got a few more bonus features projected for addition.

You think they're going to change what's worked so well for so long?  We're looking at a decade of saturation before they even consider putting anything in "the vault", and I don't even know if that's something they do with live action titles.

When I was going back through some old paperwork, I ran across a receipt from the University bookstore for my first year of college in the fall of '93.  My SSN was printed on it in full, as that was my ID number as far as the school was concerned.

Is Counterspy a retail release, or is it more a PSN d/l purchase?  Price point?

I went to the boardgame event.  Played Arkham Horror, All Hands on Deck (which should be up on Kickstarter next month), Cutthroat Caverns, and several rounds of One Night Ultimate Werewolf.

Your data will be acquired by hackers. Know it, own it.  Do what you can to protect yourself.

Community Health Systems

Quote
Hackers have gained access to their names, Social Security numbers, physical addresses, birthdays and telephone numbers.

Anyone who received treatment from a network-owned hospital in the last five years -- or was merely referred there by an outside doctor -- is affected.
...
The company's hospitals operate in 28 states but have their most significant presence in Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas.
...
Federal investigators and Mandiant told the hospital network those hackers have previously been spotted conducting corporate espionage, targeting valuable information about medical devices.

But this time, the hackers stole patient data instead. Hackers did not manage to steal information related to patients' medical histories, clinical operations or credit cards.

Still, the lost personal information is protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, the federal health records protection law. That means patients could sue the hospital network for damages.
...
Making matters worse, Community Health Systems said it will provide notification to the 4.5 million patients "as required by federal and state law," which is inconsistent and varies by region. There is no federal data breach law that requires timely and transparent disclosure that sensitive personal information was lost.
...
The hospital network said that just before Monday's announcement, it managed to wipe the hackers' malware from its computer systems and implemented protections to prevent similar break-ins.

The company plans to offer identity theft protection to the 4.5 million victims of the data breach.

Their main site is down, so the map from the article is the best you can get at the moment.

I'm about 100 pages into Cobra II, and at one point, they were counting on leveraging the existing Iraqi armed forces and police to keep the peace so that we could send fewer troops.  Talk about a pipe dream.  They wanted to fight a war of their own choosing, keep the troop footprint as low as possible to tamp down discontent at home, and make an example out of the regime, convinced on faulty intelligence that there were still WMDs.

What does it say when Laura Ingraham blames our initial intervention for their current sorry state of affairs?

Quote
Ingraham added that she was “not saying” she wanted to see U.S. forces return to Iraq: “I don’t know if there’s a good solution right now, which is a horrible thing to say for the United States of America.”

Later in the segment, Ingraham pointed out that al Qaeda — through its ISIS offshoot group — was “becoming the Islamic state.”

“We tried to do all these things in Iraq, now Iraq is worse off!” she exclaimed. “I mean, I hate to say that, but Iraq is worse than before we went in to Iraq. Christians are gone, there’s no sense of order at all.”

“Saddam Hussein is gone. That’s a good thing, but what’s left? A more embolden Islamic state.”

Personally, I want to see Guardians beat Sin City this coming weekend.  There doesn't seem that there's anything else on the docket in the coming month that will have near the widespread appearl.

Being 'universally' panned doesn't explain why they've already announced the sequel.

I had one of the above coneys at GABP, and documented it at the time.

Quote
Sat down before gametime, seats were already in the shade. Perfect weather, as it was warm with the occasional breeze off the river. I had a bratwurst before the game, which was decent. Later on, I bought a Skyline coney. Whatever it is you people in Ohio are trying to pass off as chili is disgusting. That was the worst-tasting attempt at a chili dog I have ever had the misfortune to pay for.

And I don't do mustard or onions.  
67  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Where do you stand on the crucial topic of hotdogs? on: August 07, 2014, 06:10:16 PM
Tell you what, Scraper.  If you want to send me a can of Skyline, I will sample it again, under whatever preparation instructions you determine, and report back.  I will even defer your costs.

I tried Skyline when I was at a Reds game.  Skyline is crap.

Shut your mouth. That's either a lie or a faulty opinion. Either way it's wrong.

My sister forsook the stomping grounds of her youth and married a Clevelander; both now reside in Columbus.  I have visited the Buckeye state on any number of occasions, and it has many things to recommend it.  Skyline "chili" is not one of them.  And anything that is routinely served over spaghetti doesn't deserve the name of chili, anyway.

Pretty fascinating article about a secret super experimental drug that appears to have saved the americans.

At least we can save the white people

When the locals are attacking health workers through panic and fear, trying to sell them on taking an experimental drug is probably a non-starter.

You don't put your rescuers at risk when the victim has a chance to take you down with them.

Banned in Thailand

Quote
Kalypso Media can confirm that Tropico 5, the latest installment of the hugely popular dictator sim, has been refused distribution in Thailand. The Board of Film and Video Censors (part of the Ministry of Culture) informed Kalypso Media's Thailand distributor New Era that Tropico 5 would not be granted a release status in the country. They stated that 'some contents of the game are not appropriate for the current situation,' but did not pinpoint the exact content which caused concern. After consideration, New Era has decided not to appeal the decision.

I need to do some more research with Vassal.  I pulled up one module and got the map and units, but there was nothing in place to bulk load the units.  Of course, I was doing a modular-type wargame that has more than one scenario with different units, placement, etc.  I may need to scale back the features to something a bit lighter to get my feet wet.
