    [–] Scoring and celebrating in the same motion 2dP_rdg 1 points ago in sports

    are we including hawaii in this? wasn't the Cali times 7am?

    [–] TIL 48 hours before Deadpool was green lit by 20th Century Fox, the studio cut the film's budget by $7-8 million down to $58 million. Numerous changes were made as a result, such as having Deadpool forget his bag of guns before the final battle sequence to avoid a costly gun fight in the third act. 2dP_rdg 2 points ago in todayilearned

    Honestly? I mean, pretty much any decent businessman is going to say "No" to the idea of finishing it "anyway". It's going to continue to cost money after it's finished, a cost you don't want to incur "just in case". I always tell people I wish there were three things to taught to everyone in regards to business - sunk cost, opportunity cost, and game theory. Sunk costs used to influence business decisions is one of the most common things I see in businesses that mismanage their money. Normally it's because a person refuses to acknowledge a bad idea and keeps funding it, but it can also be because someone decided to hoard 'finished' projects that went unused.

    They burned that 50k but it also saved money. That 50k is a sunk cost. Its gone. You can't use it to influence future business decisions. If they had finished that set then you have extra costs - liability insurance, asset taxes, the cost of that space being occupied (ie preventing another set from being built or just utilities for maintaining it like HVAC/electricity). There's a lot of reasons to just write it off once it's settled that it won't be used.

    It's the 8 Mile approach. Make fun of yourself so the other people can't.

    Yea, it's also how copyright laws work in most every other nation, just FYI. Seeing how copyright law is essentially adopted through international treatise. during trade negotiations.

    [–] [Paid][Equity] New game studio looking for talent of all types 2dP_rdg 1 points ago in gameDevClassifieds

    It 'helps' but it's not nearly as good as the Aurora one. I'd recommend entertaining it. I mean, it's all transparent to you and your code. It's just a matter of how easy things will be when failure occurs.

    [–] [Paid][Equity] New game studio looking for talent of all types 2dP_rdg 1 points ago in gameDevClassifieds

    It's the failover (and I thought lower price) that should make it more appealing, when you get to that point.

    [–] [Paid][Equity] New game studio looking for talent of all types 2dP_rdg 1 points ago in gameDevClassifieds

    I gotta ask - if your servers are hosted in AWS then why did you go with MySQL instead of Aurora?

    [–] BIG Idea - Looking for Dev Team 2dP_rdg 3 points ago in gameDevClassifieds

    you need testers for a game that doesn't exist?

    ^^^ seconding this.. call the local news and shame the government. It's usually a fairly successful endeavor.

    [–] Changes made to wall oven for display 2dP_rdg 2 points ago in Lowes

    And ultimately this is what it was. Found a place that is an authorized Samsung repair center to call in and Samsung identified it as a demo unit and denied any warranty work to make it functional. So now it's gotta go back.

    [–] Changes made to wall oven for display 2dP_rdg 1 points ago in Lowes

    It's not a dumb question considering how dumb people can be. :-) It's not a gas oven.

    I have verified at this point that it's missing more than a few wires required for heating (ie the ones that connect the power source to the physical heating elements in the unit).

    [–] Changes made to wall oven for display 2dP_rdg 3 points ago in Lowes

    Update - So, either the manufacturer or the store did something. I got a wiring schematic and it's clearly missing the wiring harness that powers the heating elements and everything. Verified by removed all of the body panels and seeing the distinct lack of wires.

    [–] Changes made to wall oven for display 2dP_rdg 3 points ago in Lowes

    do they ever ship models that are demo only? that would explain this.. to demonstrate Tizen/smart functionality without actually powering the heating elements

    [–] Apple is clearly working on AR Glasses 2dP_rdg 1 points ago in gadgets

    No, they probably wouldn't. Apple is part owner of most of the manufacturing process or parts of their phones and many others. In a lot of cases, every time someone else makes a phone then Apple makes a small amount of money as well.

    They started this like a decade ago with their massive cash reserves. Someone would have a new technology but not enough demand or capital to risk manufacturing so Apple would create a joint venture with them (ie, other company provided patent and Apple provided funds for factory) and become part owner or just buy them out (certain LCD screens, Liquid Metal, etc). So every time Apple bought the item they paid a lower rate than everyone else and every time someone else bought the item they made some revenue.

    Google could always eventually catch up or Apple could misstep, but the deck is honestly stacked against them a bit.

    [–] Docker users unhappy with latest forced login to download Docker and Docker Store images 2dP_rdg 2 points ago in linux

    It's a2 part answer

    Docker is a product for running containers. Think smaller "virtual machines". I set up a container with certain software and it is essentially "self contained". So if if i sent it to you you could run it no problem.

    Docker is also a company that's getting to profit from this idea but they fucked up pretty big and let other people beat them to the punch and now they're days mining trying to find some alternative sources of revenue before they die.
