Sorry but this really shows how wrong you are in the subject. Flight Simulator X is only like 1-2 year old game. More or less micropayment type too. It's definitely not an old game.
I always thought GameSpy was bigger brand than this. So much you learn from gaming.
Google has almost 40'000 employees now. You underestimate them. Their PR is good tho.
I've also noticed this huge change in companies. It seems like Google is too old and used now.
I've always loved PHP - it gives flexibity and I just love coding using it. But I know many people love Python too. What's more elegant and nicer in Python than PHP?
There's a large cultural difference. Many guys and girls on asia use web cafes. When they later get own connection theres not usually enough ip's. You're talking about billions of people. Not everyone is going to have their own ip address from that pool.
Yeah civilized people would have got it right in the first time.
I come from an Asian country with mostly shared ip address space. The divitation was never honest. It was first-come-first-serve. Both US and UK have lots of ip addresses to use, and it's wrong. Asia has much larger population too! I don't expect any new change to it, but just stating the facts.
