      D1P 2017 Charity Campaign for The Life You Can Save: $1,515 (as of April 7, 2017)   12/12/2016

      I've decided to extend our charity campaign for The Life You Can Save organizations for the entirety of 2017 so feel free to contribute at any time!  Periodically through the year, I'll have game giveaways for those who have donated to the campaign as a "thank you" for supporting this worthy endeavor!

      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

  1. Not realistic They are only a little over a Million behind sony in . it is very well within Ms's Reach
  2. Whats wrong with your kinect? have you tried the tuning app to make it work better
  3. With all the advancements that MS has put into the system "Outsiders" keep touting a higher price for the system. some even going as high as 700. I believe that the Scorpio will be just as cheap to produce as the pspro. Why? because the pspro has 2gpu's inside the SOC. That has to cost them more to produce then the Scorpio Soc Which has improvements but its totally MS owned IP so thats only costing them R&D costs. The Xtra gddr5 memory and the new hardrive is whats gonna cost MS more. Some will probably say the cooling adds xtra cost also but it looks to be just a heatsink filled with liquid to help dissipate the heat with a big fan to move alot of air. nothing really special or cost prohibitive. MS will have that drop the mic moment when they announce 399 at E3.
  4. Kim days are numbered so it doesnt really matter. The next new moon is the 25th. We like to attack under the new moon so there is no moonlight to help them see our planes at night. The Armada arrives on the 25th
  5. or more. dont leave out that part I believe 399-449 will be the price. If they hit 399 I see them taking back from Sony
  6. http://wccftech.com/wardell-scorpio-12gb-ram-no-limits/ Now Third parties are giving their opinion on this Beast
  7. Indie titles are they talking indie titles. Xbox just hit 500 indie titles
  8. Where the mega Losses coming from? The Soc is not going to cost them any more to produce then the xb1 Soc. additional cost is the GDDR5 mem and new Hardrive which is probably a Hybrid drive.
  9. lol what is it now? last game I played was the zerg part of starcraft 2 Still need to get the protoss one
  10. havent used Battle.net in for ever time to login for the free upgrade
  11. Pretty sure they are beyond our visible spectrum. I dont pay attention to the person that putting out the information. I look at the Science involved in the principal he is talking about. Scientifically what he said makes since. thats what i'm going by That way, the laser could be automatically tuned to the exact color that is best absorbed by the target in milliseconds. The Army researchers were impressed and suggested that Tim publish a paper on his idea. He declined because he felt he couldn’t get cleared for such a project. But Tim now believes that was the genesis of a new type of laser that is now being tested by the Navy, Army and Air Force. All 3 services now have color laser kill systems according to the researcher. Tim says that he has followed the unclassified literature since then and everything he told me is considered unclassified at this time. Tim says that a color laser that adjusts its color to how much laser light in reflected back by its intended target is 200 times as powerful as single color lasers because the laser light tunes itself to select the color that doesn’t tend “bloom” as it travels through the air. That has been the biggest problem with the big airborne laser project that many of us have read about – the one that fills up an Air Force 747 test plane. It could never get an effective kill range of more that 2-3 miles. With the color laser – if you can see it, you can shoot it. Tim says that even hardened targets with a gold-mirror, laser-shield surface can be easily destroyed with the new color lasers. Tim says that tri-color lasers started operational deployment in 2014. He believes that some are aboard Naval destroyers off the coast of Korea today. One fielded by the Army in a large truck shoots so fast and uses so little energy, that it can shoot down 2000 artillery shells before having to recharge its batteries. Thats the part that had me intrigued because the science of lasers weapons is to penetrate the target and generate heat. using the 3 colors allows you to match the objects color and not reflect as might light which in turns generates more heat to destroy the object
  12. I left that statement alone because I wasnt sure but laser pointers are Red because the red diodes are easy and cheap to produce Also if North Korea has a sattelite that is capable of letting an emp pulse take out our electric grid. why dont we have one that has a laser on it. It would work better in space because of no atmosphere and wouldnt need as much power to operate Reagan didnt spend all that money on SDI for nothing and No I dont believe it was a complete failure like the goverment said it was
  13. 3-4 years I thought it was already commissioned
  14. do you know what battlegroup the Uss Zumwalt is part of
