  • Jeffrey Snover is awesome. Hearing him passionately speak on Powershell and learning from him was one of my greatest SpiceWorld memories for sure. His knowledge and passion are truly inspirational. I hope he continues to bless us with his insight.

  • Fallout: London may get me to open up Fallout 4 again. If Bethesda will never leave the US (let alone the East Coast) for their games, I'll take what the modders can give instead.

  • I've followed Fallout: London for a little while before it fell off my radar. I'm extremely excited for this as Bethesda doesn't seem to be in a hurry to get another Fallout title out.

  • Fallout London is just a fan made mod, nothing too interesting IMO.

  • Lots of good stuff today.

    I am always excited to see how technology helps those with disabilities to lead better, more independent lives. That said, my first thought on reading the phrase "combining robot autonomy with limited human input" (emphasis mine), was would I really want even a semi-autonomous smart machine near my face with a knife and a fork?

  • I love Jeffrey Snover. That guy can explain something ultra complicated and make it so I can understand it. What a brilliant mind. I basically learned PowerShell from him (MVA) back in the day. I still think of some of the things he said when I am trying to figure out an issue. I wish the best for him.

  • I want to see the Fallout Series go to California, Chicago, or Texas. I think that would be cool. I need to checkout London. I usually dont have high hopes for fan made projects especially after abysmal fail of Fallout: The Frontier... Who knows though. Also, whatever happened to Fallout 4 New Vegas? I remember watching that trailer and getting super hyped but I think it may have died out now because of legal reason. Trailer of Fallout 4 New Vegas

    Took the words right out of my mouth. I'm sure there are quite a few of us in the community that partially owe our careers to the brilliant teaching methods and words of Jeffrey Snover.

    Big congrats on his retirement from MS!

    Did you ever play Fallout: New Vegas? Not the fan-mod for F4 but the one that was released using the Fallout 3 engine, I believe:

    https://store.steampowered.com/app/22380/Fallout_New_Vegas/

    Many argue it was the best of the Fallout series and it took place in the Arizona, California, and Nevada areas.

  • Sean (Spiceworks)​ Yep I've played Fallout New Vegas! I was a fan of Fallout 3 as a kid and ended up getting the Collectors Edition of Fallout New Vegas at GameStop when it came out. I think between Xbox and PC I have over 700 hours probably. PC is the first time I ever got the all the achievements! I picked up modding as well and have done some of the Bounty Hunter series from Nexus mods. Fallout New Vegas to this day is my favorite game ever. I was hoping this year at the Xbox panel just recently that they would announce a FNV Remastered edition but we had no such luck 😢 Maybe next year though!

    To be fair, have you ever used PowerShell v1 or 2. They were extremely difficult to use and couldn't do as much as Native Command. It took v3 to really be more user friendly. I don't know the politics of it, but he managed to work his way beyond what he was before the demotion.

    So, "we invite all ethical hackers to become unethical hackers".  Got it!

    The speed probably isn't particularly relevant as we are moving at approximately 67,000 mph when we think we are standing still!

    Of more concern would be the rate of accelleration and decelleration and the start and end of the high speed flight.

  • And then there's this: "... have room to seat a maximum of 12 passengers." How do you make a profit running 12 people per flight? I'm going to assume that maintenance on a machine like that will cost many times what a standard aircraft costs. And that's after the actual cost of building any of these in the first place. It's a great exercise in learning how to get to the point where it's actually feasible, but I don't see this having broad implications for general transportation ...
