Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.

Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Of course, it reminds me of when I used to rent games as a kid. Sure I didn't buy shitty games, but if a game was awesome I was more likely to ask for it from my parents. Same thing here give people a taste and your product is good and they will want the full thing.

And fuck sake we need reliable digital download services that use a universal standard for all mediums.

Google is essentially a tracker.

How exact do you need it? 1 in 10^18/(3983715294224) plus simplification (divide both numerator and denominator by four to start) is as good as u can get, exact, I think.

Radiohead released their album as a "pay if you want" kinda thing. I believe they said like 72% or something donated

something, whether it be 1 penny or 100 dollars. I don't remember.I wonder if Wiki has the details.

Edit: Wiki says they didn't release the sales figures, but had 1.2 million downloads. I'm almost positive I read the figures somewhere though.

And you can download it for free straight from NiN.com!Also, what are some awesome games to play with Nerf guns?

Even linking to a site that links to infringing material can get you sued. So that doesn't let Google get away with their infringing links.

||My Blog|Gravatar|Well heck I could sue you for being mean to me. Civil suits don't bother me as much as criminal ones though.

I don't see that as much different from the <A> tag in the HTML protocol that lets you link to infringing material. Technology neutrality in lawmaking, and all that.

Don't worry; the music mafia is working on making copyright infringement criminal cases. So they can make the state pay for the prosecution instead.

No. It was on the In Rainbows page, in the Distribution section.

||My Blog|Gravatar|thats not right.

basically what you can do is say that the probability of the opposite is about 99.99996 that is a probability less than 1 in a million (99.9999) in this case its actually 4 in 10 million or

1 in 2.5 million. so those 9999996 good ones + 4 bad gives you 10 million.What's full price?

For me it was $10

Okay. Work has this 'safety bingo' thing starting in a few days. Every day we're accident free, we draw a number, and if it goes up on the board, it goes up. The object is to get a bingo in one month. The top prize- a steak cookout- comes from getting four bingos in four consecutive months.

There are 99 balls in the hopper, which, accounting for the free space, creates a .242424242424... chance of any given draw resulting in a 'hit', or usable number.

February, with 28 days, will likely result in 7 hits.

There are 16,777,215 possible ways to fill a bingo card, from blank to blackout. 346,104 of these use exactly 7 hits. Of those 346,104, 5,928 will result in a bingo. That's a 1.7128% chance of February getting a bingo, and this assumes perfect safety.

Assuming that there are 8 hits, 735,471 combos give exactly that amount, 27,102 of which surrender a bingo, a 3.685% chance. (It takes 14 hits to have a 50% shot at a bingo- 59.8912%, to be exact.)

February has 28 days, we'll call that 7 hits.

March has 31 days- we'll say 8 hits.

April, 30 days, we'll say 7 hits.

May has 31 days, so that'll be 8 hits.

The calculation is .017128 * .03685 * .017128 * .03685.

CHANCE OF ONE BINGO: 1.7128%.

CHANCE OF TWO STRAIGHT BINGOS: 0.06311668%.

CHANCE OF THREE STRAIGHT BINGOS: 0.00108106249504%.

CHANCE OF GETTING THE STEAK COOKOUT: 0.000039837152942224%

That's one steak in 2,510,220 months. If we're perfectly safe for

209,185 years, odds are we'll get one steak.||My Blog|Gravatar|I'm sticking with my statement.

stop asking questions that you go and figure out yourself!

It will suck not having someone around that I've known for over 2 years now

thats comp sci stuff right? if i read comp sci stuff, my eyeballs pop out of their sockets

Yes. And I do not wish to be responsible for popped eyeballs!

That sucks...

We have a silly bugger in the WoW guild that assumes that everything written in guild chat or the guild forums is directed directly at him.

Yeah, he won't be around much longer.

Yeah, I typically have trouble keeping up with it after lunch cause it moves so quickly...I usually just lurk. But today it's crawling. Kind of refreshing actually.
