Wolfenstein Being Recalled In Germany 625

Posted by Soulskill
from the ach-mein-leben dept.
D1gital_Prob3 tips news that Activision's recently-released shooter, Wolfenstein, is being recalled in Germany due to the appearance of swastikas in the game. Such symbols are banned in Germany, and the German version of the game went through heavy editing to remove them. Apparently, they missed some. Activision said, "Although it is not a conspicuous element in the normal game ... we have decided to take this game immediately from the German market." Reader eldavojohn points out a review that has screenshot comparisons between the two versions of the game.

+ - Microsoft open source?!?

They even call themselves Microsoft enterprise open source. As if there is such a thing! Peter Galli at eWeek reports on the nature of this marketing play in Aras Move Puts New Spin on Open Source. Apparently, they even chose to use one of the Microsoft licenses and not the GPL. Reason given is to avoid 'required contributions'. This has all the signs of pure, unadulterated BS."

+ - Time for a different terminal emulator?

Konsole inserts extra newline characters in the output, which makes it labour-intensive to do cut-and-paste.
Gnome Terminal doesn't let me scroll back while output is being generated. doesn't have tabs, so I'm constantly having to search for my window. And it's Mac-only.

So I started searching for a better terminal emulator. The most interesting thus far is Terminator. It's got horizontal scrolling, which is ideal for SQL. And it gets the details right: scrollback, wrapping, fonts and keyboard shortcuts Just Work.

What's terminal emulator do you use? What does it do better?"

What good is a ticket to the good life, if you can't find the entrance?
