    by , November 03, 2018 at 05:35 AM (Tall an' handsome)
    Flickr is following in the foot steps of Photo Bucket. Their approach is less radical\total but may still affect a lot of users:

    Unless you pay for Flickr Pro, you can't upload more than 1,000 images to Flickr.

    From January 8th to February 5th, you won't be able to upload any more images if you already have more than 1,000.

    On February 5th, if you still have more than 1,000 images as a free user, then all of your images over 1,000 will be deleted from

    The file to edit is "/Users/yourusername/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/Medieval II Total War/Medieval II Total".

A related problem is that you may not be able to remove the mod if you are already subscribed - other then manually removing it.

    If you have a mod like that contact it's author and make him aware of the solution underneath:

  5. Hitai Talks About Chess: Chigorin vs Chigorin?!

    by , September 02, 2018 at 07:07 PM (The Other End of the Quill)
    When I play with the black pieces in chess, I tend to favour two particular defences. The first, and by far and away the most common, is my reply to 1.e4, which is d6, otherwise known as the Pirc Defence. The second is my reply to 1.d4, which is the Chigorin Defence (1.d4 d5 2.c4 Nc6).
