Sometimes you just gotta vent. So I'm sitting here staring at my last check stub that I always use to file taxes, and I'm dealing with realization for this year I've been forced to get health insurance just so I don't get a penalty for something I don't need. I mean I get sick once ever 8-10 years and its a damn cold. I don't need to go to the doctor for that. So starting 2015 I have to look forward to losing $86 for health insurance a month, that I wont be using. Yes, I get to write it off at the end of the year on taxes, but its certainly not helping me by being present. I'm still wondering even how the hell this got through. If I recall something along the lines of "oh, we didn't know that was in there".... Well why the hell would you pass something if you didn't know all of what was in it? This is about as bad as the time I got my first savings account and discovered the government places a tax on it. Wtf am I saving for then? I have to say for every good step forward, there's always some way they discover to try to tear you down bit by bit. I might join the other 100,000+ (of course this isn't accurate) who will probably check off muslim on their tax return form just so they don't have to pay the penalty for religious reasons. Damn...I'd have a long battle with my conscious on that... maybe. Government and big corporations tend to get away with all the unholy grace of hell, yet let the little people stick one toe over that line. Canned. As usual, I'll just have to do what people have been doing for years. Find a way around the bs handed to us. Lets do this.
So, I was playing Titanfall earlier. On the U.S. West Coast Servers like I normally do. And I had at best 98 ping. It was usually somewhere around 150. So, I went back to the main menu to see what was going on since everyone else in my house was asleep, so it wasn't like they were using the internet. According to the main menu, my ping was 28. So, I tried switching to the central U.S. data center. According to the main menu my connection to that was 60 or so ping. On those servers, I was averaging 50, sometimes getting all the way down to 40. Now, I don't work on making any multiplayer games, but that doesn't seem right to me. And, the only logical conclusion that I could come up with was that the lag compensation in Titanfall has just plain gotten out of hand. (In fact, on the West Coast servers, when I opened my internet browser with some youtube running on it, my ping dropped by thirty. So, that doesn't seem right to me. The only logical explanation to me is that its lag compensation going completely overboard. Since more internet use that isn't Titanfall lowered my ping, it has to be that. So, has anyone else noticed this? (And I noticed my party's ping went down too, when we switched to the further away servers.)
