+ - Microsoft threatens Halo 3 gamers with LIVE ban-> 7 7

JamesO writes: "When contacted by Pro-G a Microsoft rep confirmed rumours that gamers who play Halo 3 early will have their LIVE accounts banned. Simply not connecting to the internet doesn't appear to be a solution either. The rep also confirmed that Microsoft is able to ban accounts based on information collected by the console which shows when the game was played. This news is sure to come as a shock to some gamers who have already started playing the final chapter in the blockbuster Halo trilogy.

This appears to suggest that games who play Halo 3 before the official street date will only avoid a ban if they never access Xbox LIVE. Microsoft is preparing an official statement on the Halo 3 banning scandal. We'll give you more on this breaking news story as we get it."

It turns out that this appears to be correct as the BBC is reporting that her husband William Barrington-Coupe "began faking passages because Joyce Hatto, who had ovarian cancer, could be heard groaning in pain during recordings"

+ - The Monty Python guide to social networking

An anonymous reader writes: http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry1323.html The more I hear about Ning, the more I keep going back to Monty Python and the Knights that say Ni sketch. It's all very well demanding a shrubbery, or a community for that matter, but just shouting Ning at us isn't to going to make it happen. It will probably have lots of 15 to 25 year olds rolling on the floor with laughter though...
