He's complaining about PC's and pointing out weaknesses pretty much everything has.

As in, "a car can break down", not "a car can break down more easily than a bike" or something.

TL;DR: He's a retard.

Ok thanks. As someone with an IT degree, all of those so called problems are easily solvable and if those problems do show up, your doing it wrong.

Honestly, those problems are what keeps IT professionals in demand. He should be glad those problems exists.

Mystery solved. The aunt is suffering from lycanthropy.
So Grak's aunt is secretly Wrex wearing a wig, and Grak is the modern equivalent of little red riding hood?
Not my aunt, it's a friend's.

Not multiplayer. At best it could be taken as online Simultaneous Hotseat play, but it's both no longer supported and fairly unknown. Also, 3d party software.

DFTerm 3 v0.1 can be found in 3rd party utilities currently actually. And Meph may add it into Masterwork, which is very popular, but no it's not true multiplayer, but the very nature of DF doesn't really permit true multiplayer.

its kinda silly but not amazingly stupid. It's just carbon, and diamonds aren't actually worth much.

Somehow I doubt they eat the diamonds... it's not like you can chew on them; swallowing them will be unpleasant, and so will expelling them eventually if they aren't digested in the strong acid of the stomach. If someone served me a desert with gold leaf and diamond, I'd eat the gold leaf but keep the diamond in my pocket :P
