With a proxy running on my home server using operas browser that the firm didn't install. There are ways that I could still get busted. But I'm 90% sure nobody monitors at all. 99% sure they aren't actively key logging or screen shotting.

I expect that firms that traditionally pay their associates the same salary across offices will extend the new scale firm-wide, just as they have in the past (granted this is indeed the new scale).

If your firm has different salaries for different markets, then you might be out of luck.

Are you senior enough that a bonus could cover a down payment? Esp since the tax percent on bonuses are pretty high iirc

I won't get a bonus (or even know if I do) for a while. Hoaping they patch it.

I remember back in the day games for console actually had to be finished before real ease and that was a good console advantage over PC

Now console is just a shittier version of things the PC can do better


Rome Total War II still is a piece of crap. I bet the expansion pack will be better.


You can patch the shit out of an unfinished beta release like they've done (lol at calling the major patch "Emperor Edition" instead of just "The Game We Would Have Released Except for Sega's Ridiculous Deadlines", but you can't patch major design defects and poor feature implementation (lol at their complex politics system).

Creative Assembly is trash now. Cop EU4 instead during the steam holiday sale for your grand strategy fix.

Eh, after I said RTWII was total shit, I played like 20 hours this weekend. They fixed a bunch. It's decent now.

I wanna Cop EU4, but I believe it doesn't have a tactical map? Gotta have dat tactical map.

You know these bonuses were previously only good for one subscription like Bang Bros or something like that. I think you can get a subscription to the entire Reality Kings universe with this.

Nice.


I've been spending way too much money lately. Mine is just going into savings and a few upcoming bills, like brakes I ate through at track.
