I don't understand why you guys on facebook feel so this article.,130061733,339284989,00.htm Thank you for posting this article today! Very important information, of course myspace will never "announce" to the users that they are doing this. It'd be nice if they notified people in changes as significant as this one.

Comment: Another meteor crater (Score 1) 96

Here's another location of a crater in Mexico: do a search for "ciudad de carmen." The caves that exist in this area were formed from a meteor impact, and the caves exist along the edge of the impact. It creates a ring formation in the area, and it was also only recently discovered. Half of the crater is in the water, the other half of the crater is on land. Also, very close to this area, people theorize that the "gulf of mexico" was an impact crater that might've caused the dinosaurs to die. The yucatan peninsula sure has an odd shape, and in the water, it almost forms a circle around the gulf of mexico. The BBC series "earth: the biography" examines meteor impacts and craters that exist on the planet. It was a great natural science series, and it was very fun to watch.

Darkfall Set For Launch 80

Posted by Soulskill
from the super-fast-dev-cycles dept.
Darkfall, a PvP-oriented MMORPG that was first announced in 2001, is finally in the process of going live. After dealing with some launch-day bugs, the Darkfall team reports that servers are going up, and they're processing pre-orders to get players in the game. MMOCrunch has an in-depth write-up from the end of the beta, saying that the game is still "rough around the edges," but also that the team has created a "solid framework of an MMO that offers a unique experience that the genre has not seen in quite some time." Ten Ton Hammer had a similar reaction, tempering criticism with praise for the lack of hand-holding.

The more cordial the buyer's secretary, the greater the odds that the competition already has the order.
