Actually you can speculate in them (I think). Couldn't someone just buy up the companies who already own some large blocks of addys? It would be hecka expensive though.
Probably referring to books to read on the throne while making a deposit. If you are an exceptionally fast reader and a slow number 2 guy, then you might be able to read 1 book per "b---load".
Anything less than around 33 or so cents goes to to paypal from fees. So just keep in mind that you are donating to paypal not the indy game developer if you do that. There's a lot of people who donated 1 cent to paypal. On the other hand, if you WANT to cost paypal money, donating 1 cent with visa card probably costs paypal money.
Like no one bought and used shoddy electronic voting machines despite a shoddy past history (even at the time of purchase) in last few elections?
I think bethesda was pretty much ignoring them until fallout 1/2/tactics started being sold with labeling of "trilogy"
That implies it includes FO3, which it doesn't. The reason beth put that part into the contract was they didn't want interplay screwing up beth's marketing for FO3, and it looks like interplay just ignored that part of the contract and tried to screw them anyway.
Actually I'm impressed. From my experiance most other sites go the route of MS when they did they Hotmail EULA change that said anything you sent through their servers belongs to MS, and if its proprietary then it now belongs to them with all rights going to MS. Theoretically if you sent patent PDFs through hotmail during that time, they would then own the patent.
Anyway, seeing twitter go the other way and up front say that the tweets belong to the authors is impressive to me.
I'm pretty sure apple charges a fee for iphone developement stuff.
Remember how the NFL has been going after places that have TV's showing thier matches? Saying they need to buy a broadcaster license to show it on larger than a certain number of inches, or more than certain number of people watching, etc.
Well if this becomes reality, now they will be able to go after anyone they thing is violating that kinda thing.
FAT32 has a 4 GB max file size.
This can be somewhat inconveniant if you have say a linux dvd ISO thats larger than that, or if you record HD video, etc.
I would suggest going with NTFS, there are ways now to use the actual microsoft NTFS driver in a wrapper with linux, then you get full native compatability if thats what you are thinking (it used to be that NTFS compatability was an issue with linux).
The cheapest solution for backup would probably be an external USB drive. And you may also want to have 2 of them that you swap out for off site storage, or something like that, depending on how important your data is to you.
Yeah you are right, if they just ban it entirely (presuming enforcement), it puts lots more people out of a job than if just 1 game company say went under.
And thats differant from what they are doing by banning it entirely, how?
I've seen things happen in real time chat that were NOT contrived that are as funny as any on bash. In chat some people can say some really stupid/funny things sometimes. I imagine some on bash is contrived or made up, but I think a lot isn't.
