RE: supply points.
I anxiously await any info and/or resolution you find for me.
The movie is quite good as dramas go, but way to much time spent on the return journey after the ship was sunk. Nicolas Cage was very poorly cast as the captain; other than that, pretty good. The lead in CGI is pretty good as well.

I don't know what happened to Nick Cage he was pretty decent early on and then something happened to him and everything he's done past a point has been some degree of awful.

RE: supply points.
I heard that due to the complexity of the Supply Points algorithm they were splitting out the programming to co-processors and for cost reasons they settled on banks of Pentium v1 chips. Sadly this resulted in the triggering of the following silicon issue
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentium_FDIV_bug
Which means that due to the number of rounding and calculation issues the value can change dramatically from hour to hour

Tongue Wink ;D

[Maybe...]

RE: supply points.
I don't think any "rounding out" values could impact an hourly change of over 25%. Hopefully, my rate doesn't revert to a lower value anymore. But I still think a "gift" of some SP parachutes isn't an unreasonable expectation. I literally lost hundreds of them during my most recent drop alone.

I can't believe that an organization like EA would simply choose to ignore the issue raised by me and confirmed by a forum moderator because I made a passing comment about a movie within my message.
Pardon me for actually having a life, and I guess it won't include me devoting much of it to EA and their game.

RE: supply points.
It was a tongue in cheek comment - Rhiordd had been in and posted on a number of threads and had presumably chosen not to comment on your thread He's the only official representative that visits these forums. Moderators are here only to deal with the forum, in every other matter we're the same as you, a member of the community and player of the game.
