    hey @CriterionGames thanks for still asking for money on the Burnout Paradise Remastered, the game crashes because it wants to, you have to put origin in offline mode to pass the EA login screen but it still crashes on the DMV screen, shoud have given it for free

    @93418 @GOGcom That's a good point actually. Origin I don't have the same error message. Only steam. Something between the two gets mixed up and thinks its never been activated before.

    @JagexChaose Pal Park Retire Glitch causes Arceus to be 'legitimately obtained' and infinitely farmed as you are able to use it to call upon the 'Battle Arceus' trigger by if you void into one of the incredibly few tiles that are labelled as 'Hall of Origin' by using Retire menu option.

    @PrinsipeNgPoot Objectifying queers in fandom is a very real problem, but I'd make the case at how hypocritical fans are, like your friend na ayaw sa yuri pero patay na patay sa yaoi -- not the term fujoshi, which is just so layered and complex because of the land of its origin. (2/2)

    @Uber I am receiving ride receipts with origin and destination info from another rider. Not only is this annoying, it seems like a security issue as it is exposing a lot of information about another user. Please contact me to fix this...I cannot find any way to contact you.

    @Eluminella It is! I’m going to try to find out if there’s anything I can do to fix it other than repairing the game through Origin which worked last time but not this time.

  • OverUnderClover're in danger, girl (@OverUnderClover) reported

    @BethLindstrom @AUdebm @SenWarren @MAPOLICECHIEFS @massfop @MasscopAFLCIO She's absolutely right. If you deny this then you have no awareness of history. Setting bait trucks in poor neighborhoods, pulling guns on people and saying it's bc they aren't white. Racial profiling has been built into practice since it's origin. Better to fix it than deny.

    @Say_NO2China @paqurin @BattleOfChelsea @hipriestesskang @AlexWhitcomb He could start by enstating country of origin labeling and truth in labeling laws reguarding food products...that would be nice. He could ban products that test positive for toxins too. There are a ton of specific things he could fix.

    @TwBookClub @Ruth_Finnegan A complex and well researched book about the origin and use of quotes sounds useful for a particular audience. The grammatical errors are surprising and unfortunate for a book of this nature.

    @EAHelp It only took three cache clears and reboots to fix it today. This is fun. And if I shut it down again, I'll have to repeat the process. I'm getting fed up of running Origin every second of the day because if I don't, it will error out.

    @MadeNChynna Not entirely. I think black is generic. Because everyone's from Africa at some point. So when do you stop. Every culture has a prior origin. At some point they left by choice or force and created their own. And that's what they chose to go by henceforth and I don't see a problem

    @need_user_name_ Though its a different thing, same kind of problem i hav wid the concept of secularism here.

    @PaddySteen @DCMS Get your landline supplier to stop all calls that don't have their origin shown. Then if you get an unexpected call just say "Hello". If the person takes an abnormal time to reply, put the phone down. The time lag is due to satellite delay from Asia etc.

    @KielRobinson @karlmeyer @LiamFox One particular example of this, Doctors. EU origin Dr's are leaving, Indian Dr's fighting to take up positions. ALL should be very welcome. FoM was a problem due to borderless EU and free passage of illegal immigrants. Ironic as some EU countries now close to reinstating borders.

    @mrowebot I went for the Buffalo chicken wrap. Made sure to check the origin of Buffalo chicken first so not to offend anyone. Unless they are offended in which case I apologise. Maybe @McDonaldsUK could introduce a turnip flavoured wrap for native English to eat without causing issues.

    @Fuzzyness @OriginBroadband I was with BT for 6 years, 0 problems ever, switched to Origin because of a BT price rise, had nearly nightly outages for an long time and still pay for a backup connection as it dies once or twice a week. All they did was blame my line

    @Fuzzyness Totally understandable, dropouts are stupid. I'm currently on Origin Broadband which I believe piggybacks off of Vodafone and have only had one drop out since moving here in January. Might be worth looking it mobile service providers that are doing Internet rn. Might be good.

    @JamesMelville I've been pointing this out for several years now! The origin of and blame for the problem lies squarely at the feet of successive (now proven) xenophobic Home Secretaries & the Home Office, the greatest offender being #theresamayhem herself who was Home Sec for 6 years!!

    @heatherm999 The problem is so bad that the government can't handle it ; there would be riots, the legal costs would be astronomical, impossible to identify the country of origin, who wouldn't accept them necessarily. Only an authoritarian state could do it. Either way democracy is finished.

    @Hells4Heroes It’s disgusting, something has to be done! Our justice system is broken and not dealing effectively with these foul child rapists. Those that aren’t from here should be kicked out and sent back to their country of origin to serve their time in their prisons not ours.

    @Fact Not very correct. The question really is does the Bible sanction such celebration? Why did Jesus Christ not celebrate his own? What's the origin of the celebration? Our service to God should be based on His direction not on our convenience.

    @akalamusic Sounds like a rich and poor problem, haves vs have nots, this happens across the world, has happened throughout history and is not limited to rich West Africans against poor African Americans. Money is the problem, what causes divisions, not nationality or country of origin.

    @ivyleaguepunk As a consumer, speak with your wallet. Use ad-block (Ublock Origin is best) if you're angry. You are provided a service, and if it can't be replaced by a better service, or have a justified cost increase, then you can communicate it clearly by NOT buying Turbo.
