So if the forums were just upgraded, does this make this place Wasteland 2?  ;)

I'd say plenty of reasons to not like Hillary, but then I'd have to get into specifics about which Hillary
the one that's always been a moderate,
 the one that's always been a progressive

the one that gives s speech to Verizon execs
the one that goes down to the street with Verizon workers on strike for a photo op

When her stance depends on audience, it's hard to figure out what she actually supports. But when the DNC lifted Obama's ban on contributions from lobbyists, the DNC used state and local Democratic parties to launder money for her campaign, it proved just how strong her Wall Street ties are; well that and the board meeting she had with her "investors"/donors to explain why she lost. Later on, she would accept full responsibility for her loss, and then in the same breath, blame Comey. Despite all of her flaws, despite the obvious electioneering and the obvious collusion, the only reason she lost is because she alienated voters. She alienated them with things she said. She alienated them with her million dollar troll brigade. She alienated them with her fake news stories being pushed by David Brock and Blue Nation Review. And then her loyal followers followed her example attacking anyone that was not on board with her 100%.

The DNC has not denied collusion with the Clinton campaign in the current lawsuit against them, instead they insisted there was no reason for impartiality because they are a private organization, and even that they can pick their own candidate regardless of tax payer funded primaries. Of course it helped to have people from her earlier campaign now in key positions within the DNC for this campaign.

Now as far as any criminal negligence on her part regarding her server and the emails, I think you're aware that in fact during the Congressional hearing with Comey (available on C-Span's website) he did admit there was criminal negligence on her part. In fact, whether you hate her or are a diehard fan, you really should actually watch the video. Yes, it's long and boring, and Democrats try to build up Comey like they're trying to score a date with him. But just listen to his answers when they actually ask him questions.

And keep in mind Hillary was not just some janitor at a school, she was the Secretary of State, a position that required handling classified information on a daily basis. Her server was without a valid security certificate for 3 months. And we all know about Paul Combetta asking about how to edit the email database during the FBI's investigation, a move that would be considered tampering with evidence/ destruction of evidence. He also posted some details about the server that should never have been posted, and then went back and started deleting these posts during the congressional hearing.

The legality of the server itself hasn't come up as much as the question behind the reasoning for it. It's been shown that Sate Department and the Clinton foundation had enough overlap in business to raise several red flags. In fact, even the Washington Post, where Podesta is now a columnist, wrote a piece on it.

Thank god she wants to lead the #McResistance now. Not sure what she's resisting, except responsibility for her own actions. But at least she gets to handle someone else's money again.

Fallout 4 until I get sick of having to purge the cell buffer to avoid the infinite load screen bug. Robocraft (runs good on Linux). Minecraft because I actually maintain a mod called Modular Powersuits.

...Sony and Microsoft's patch policy (devs have to pay extra to release patches for their games).

Sony I could see, but Microsoft? Microsoft, the company that patches their OS to death because they can't get updates right the first time around, or the second .... third ... ever? I mean really, how many times can you release another update to fix the same damned thing?

I don't know, I played NV recently on Linux using WINE and on Windows 10. I didn't see any game breaking bugs, maybe they were fixed already, dunno. Either that or they're trying to play on outdated hardware. Only thing I really didn't care for was the shallow character development and having an otherwise pristine vault that was filled with cement.

Myron. Although he had some great "combat taunts", his actually dialog was quite annoying and I found myself quite content watching him die on numerous occasions.
