Funny how you misspelled "Gammar Nazi"
That's available through an extension on Thunderbird called "Thunderbird conversations". See here: https://github.com/protz/GMail-Conversation-View/wiki
Also, while we're nitpicking, it's
I believe you made a slight mistake. If all of the 100.000 were year subscribers, then the tally would be on $8.000.000. And that number does not take into account the more expensive monthly subs. Again, I have no idea what running stuff like that costs, but would 8M *really* be not enough?
You have summed it up quite nicely here. I also was a beta tester. After the game was released I quit playing it since I was done (end of content). Next my wife picked it up and my two boys (6 and 10) loved playing it too. I didn't have a problem slapping down the 80 euros for a year subscription. It's a small amount if three people enjoy the game. Although it's very unfortunate you can't play together.
From what I heard about it they have 2 million players, of which about 100.000 are paying ones. I have NO idea what it costs to run a service like this, but you would think that 100.000 paying subscribers would go a long way.
What I really liked was the fact that you could win real Lego prizes. They had some fun contests that, if you were #1 after a week, would get you one or more real boxes of Lego in the mail. Our Lego collection has been updated with a few nice additions
I really liked the idea of introducing the MMO(RPG) concept to my children using Lego Universe. They see me playing LotRO so they have a good idea of how an MMO works. With Lego Universe they had a chance of doing the same on their own level. I am really sorry to see it go.
Oh the irony
Ah ok, I thought it was a project from some developer who loved NVidia doing something nice for the Fedora community
What about the Livna drivers for NVidia? They are a breeze to install (guides are everywhere). My Fedora 15/Gnome 3/NVidia 8800GT is running fine and fast with this.
As you're on the subject, toilet paper goes with the loose end on the outside, i.e. not against the wall.
