Maybe the actual podcast subscribers could get this EARLIER than youtube, rather than several days after you upload it? Just a thought. Maybe I don't understand *podcasts*.

China's policy towards freespeech on the internet is one of the reasons why I don't want them to win the trade war and further expand their sphere of influence

You can use the popcorn button on the microwave but it's pointless. Ideally you want to just put it on for a couple minutes or so & listen. When the pops slow to like 3 a second take it out! Although they wont all be popped, that's the only way to avoid burning any.

how? is that possible!

In regard to Lootboxes, RuneScape used to have great Holiday events with good rewards. Now though most of that content has moved to Treasure Hunter. A gambling mini-game where you buy keys to open chests for random prizes. Naturally during the Holidays there's special themed content there that's no longer being made in game accessible by everyone.

Yes, you streamed to the test channel, you screwed up, why would you mention your failure? Do we need to know you failed? I don't think it makes the show better.

You would think, with the government having the data now, they could just re-issue Social Insurance Numbers for everyone affected in the hack.

"I mounted one image belonging to Steve Wu the founder of NCIX. Inside I found data going back 13 years, financial documents, employment letters containing SIN numbers, and data from Mr. Wu’s home computer which featured personal documents and images of his family mixed in with numerous private photos of high end escorts from mainland china."

Espionage originating from China, much?

Carson B Wagner - 7 months ago

Dude, they've been selling the same, basic, Onyx "one knob" stereo at Amazon for between $140 and $160, for a decade.

It'll drive your Klipschs. I have a pair of cherry wood KG4s, and it makes them sound INCREDIBLE. I also saw a Yamaha in there, when I just looked this up:

For being such a smart guy, jef isn't very wise. He could have gone about that in a way in which noone would ever have found out. Be grateful he wasnt the sharpest tool in the shed.
