Military Personnel Weigh In On Being Taliban In Medal of Honor 171 171

SSDNINJA writes "This is a feature from gamrFeed that interviews nine US service members about playing as the Taliban in the upcoming Medal of Honor. One soldier states that games like MoH and Call of Duty are 'profiteering from war.' Another says, 'Honestly, I don't really see what the whole fuss is about. It's a game, and just like in Call of Duty, you don't really care about what side you're taking, just as long as you win. I don't think anyone cares if you're part of the Rangers or Spetznaz, as long as you win.' An excellent and interesting read."

Too dependent on continuous sources of electricity? The corded phone you use requires electrical power; it just gets it over the phone line instead of the power line. The phone company still needs to work to supply that power with batteries, generators, etc, and it is still subject to failure. You are still depending on a continuous source of electricity; it's just a different source.

Comment: Try to get a larger address block anyway (Score 1) 55 55

While your providers are almost certainly supposed to be following address allocation policies from their address providers, you might be able to get them to issue you a /24 nonetheless. You can show a legitimate need for this amount of address space, even though you don't plan to use it for addressing machines--you want to multihome. Try to get your current provider to listen. If they don't, while shopping around for other providers, (which you will need anyway if you want to multihome), make a /24 a requirement of your contract. Renumbering 16 hosts won't be fun, but its not the worst thing in the world at all.
