is this not entrapment?
Well there are other things that are important as well as the story -- the acting, casting, staying faithful to the canon -- all things that Continues fails. Vic does a horrible Shatner impersonation and both he and Haberkorn sound like they're on helium. Not to mention Vic being about 15 years too old to be playing TOS Kirk. And instead of using the Kirk, Spock, McCoy dynamic that dominated TOS and made it special they have chosen to push McCoy into the wings and introduce the canon-breaking character of Dr. McKennah, who just happens to be played by Vic's Barbie-doll girlfriend.
For a project that continually pounds its chest proclaiming they are the most faithful and accurate TOS production they've made a whole lot of poor choices that belies their highly-inaccurate claim.
You want the real continuation of the 5 year voyage? Go with the guys that have been making episodes for over 10 years.
Vic and his crew are no where near the level of accuracy and faithfulness to TOS as the New Voyages team is, and their latest episode, Mind-Sifter is all the proof you need.
...what's to stop people from just typing in an IP address??? Oh yeah, nothing...
And if something like this comes to pass I'm sure we'll see an offshore shadow DNS server out of the reach of the MPAA that will gladly supply the needed DNS lookups.
Did we really need a "study" to show this? Cause anyone with an IQ over 20 could figure it out.
Well that would be one additional source of revenue that wouldn't require increasing gas prices for everyone -- start putting tolls on your highways, bridges, and tunnels. The money raised would then go directly into a fund to maintain them.
And those states should get their asses in gear. It's certainly not new technology.
Many states have an EZ-Pass or similar system. I should think it would be quite easy to charge variable rates depending upon the time of day via these systems. It would also be another big incentive to get people using them.
Take some tinfoil, form a large hat, a medium hat, and small hat. Put the large one on your head, the medium one on your laptop, and the small one on your phone. After that, you should be just fine.
Find another way of funding the HTF that doesn't rely upon bleeding more gas money from people.
People drive less and buy more fuel efficient vehicles because the price of gas is so fucking high. Lower the price and people will drive more because the amount they spend on gas every month won't be the same as their rent.
Basic Economics 101. Not surprising it goes right over their heads.
I'd love to see USB 3.0 and gigabit ethernet on there. Hell, throw in onboard wifi while you're at it.
You could just leave it the fuck alone.
Nothing more to add than that.
