Updating the Hearthstone mobile app through Google Play does not always mean that the Hearthstone app is actually updated. Because it may surprise you with the need to download an additional 1.2GB of data when you open it, which is a mandatory download to play the game. I dunno why they felt the need to invent their own in-app downloader for game data when Google Play is perfectly able to provide that service.
I've got a friend that work a in an iOS game dev startup. They do it the same way, you download the app and then you need to wait to download the content. They do it this way for two main reasons:
Easier updates. If they need to update stuff that doesn't requires changes in code, they can do it without having to release a new version. Which is much easier and faster.
Building up on the above: they "game" the AppStore reviews system this way. On iOS only the reviews for the latest version count towards app's score and only those reviews will be shown to a potential user.
It's easier to get someone to download the game and then play it. You download a few hundred megs from the AppStore, then you download a few hundred megs when first launching. Also, you can choose if you want to download it all, or if you want for some stuff to be downloaded JIT.

: New IM app.
: Just an avatar?
: It's an avatar.
: I hate you.

@deadfast Reminds me of my run-in with Dish Network.
I had ordered their first model of built-in-house PVR. It had a UI that was essentially the same as their receivers, designed for recording to VCR. I called to get an RMA and sent it back within the week.
They refunded to my credit card, then on the next bill charged me for the refund. Cue three months of calling in, explaining the history from the top, getting promised a refund, and no refund.
Eventually an agent read me some of the history on the ticket. I'd call in, the agent would initiate the refund, and then later a manager would cancel the refund due to "customer already got a refund to their card". Finally got it escalated to someone who figured out receiving didn't credit the return to my account.

We Are Legion (We Are Bob) (Bobiverse Book 1) - Kindle edition by Dennis Taylor. Download it once and read it on your Kindle device, PC, phones or tablets. Use features like bookmarks, note taking and highlighting while reading We Are Legion (We Are Bob) (Bobiverse Book 1).
If you did, I owe you a beer! It was great, so much that I may read it again (maybe in 10 years).
The story is original, thrilling and funny. What is most important for me is I could not find glaring bugs, once you accept wrap-drives (and faster than light communications) there is no more non-sense (yet in book 2).
What's that, a single person paying for everyone's healthcare? I don't want to be the one who supports that!
You tried to make a joke, but the reality is exactly that - in single payer system, there is one entity that pays for everyone's medical bills - it's called the state, and it's funded entirely from taxes.
@accalia oh yeah, I actually remember reading that post now, sorry. I think I might have a bad habit relating to dollar-sign variables, where I assume that people are talking php so I just move on the next post.
although, as far as I know there are no bans against marriage between third cousins.
We got married in California and I made some silly joke when getting the license. The clerk told me, serious as can be, that it is perfectly legal for first cousins and siblings to marry in California. (I think he said siblings, I know he said first cousins)
status: I dreamt I was Fluttershy, who was so distraught at being noticed only for her looks that she sought out someone to disguise her appearance. Since ponies don't typically wear clothes, naturally this meant magical alteration (though temporary).
Alterations included a coat color change, manecut, smaller butt, and longer snout.
The spell wasn't cheap, so I went around seeking employment, but failed. Eventually I came up with a ploy to get in with a local restaurant. It involved a cutting board, butter, celery, and a few other things...
Naturally it worked and I was sent back into the kitchen to be an aid.
First task was to mix up a drink, it consisted of water, salt, and I got to the point of cracking an egg into the cup when I failed and the shell went into the cup too. This upset me greatly enough that I awoke.
It appears my AI is severely undervaluing musical instruments and any trade it successfully completes is just out of pure luck. The 283☼ instrument only adds 188☼ to the total, and it only desynchronizes more from that point:
The trade being slightly in the trader's favor makes them willing to negotiate:
