to get caught, yes.
What the hell kind of news are you watching then?
On the other hand, costs of self-hosting are indeed underestimated very quickly, which is not a good thing when budget is low.
Also, while manycore machines seem cost-effective, look at the solutions you are using for computation; it is hard to press a 48-core machine to peak performance, much harder than driving more standard distributed-memory supercomputers. But this depends on your application.
Buying time on an existing cluster (local university, or a dedicated HPC company) seems the surest way, and also reasonably secure when done at a trusted institute or company.
Not even with a `left-wing' government dude. I can imagine only one left-mid party who would maybe support it, but both green parties would never support the idea as it is presented in this slashdot article due to privacy.

`Anonymous' as the group is called is called such only to indicate that this group does not exist in the sense of identity or organisation. It is plain stupid to speak of anonymous as a group of this or that. One can laugh about it if the mass media doesn't get it, but it's said when universities think something like this is noteworthy.

Let them get bitten in the ass by their own supported rules, and hope it happens enough times so they'll reconsider their stance.
that this can be more efficiently calculated using simple linear programming. Solutions are then even sure to be optimal, in contrast to when using GAs.
More recent then: Dragon Age: Awakenings, expansion of the aforementioned game. I have never played a game which was more blatantly unfinished. Characters were rushed in, options were butchered-out. How do you know? Well, because they didn't even have the time to properly remove all traces. I realise this has been getting the norm for more and more games nowadays. But it's affecting more and more potentially really good games. Civilisation 5 anyone? Or Neverwinter Nights 2 back in the day?
My only hope is on consumer power. I will not buy any product, specifically EA products, before I *know* it is proper. I will not buy at launch. I will sit and wait until the bugs have been fixed, or until I forget about it. I hope many will do the same and companies will again produce only products which are *finished*, and developers regain their pride and tell publishers to sod off when they have to.
But thanks to the insider speaking out, confirming once again rushing is the norm nowadays.
