I have some longer cheap cables and I have serious issues with the DRM failing. I get a picture, and it tells me I'm not allowed to play on this device or
... .A few of the wrong missed bits and you get epic fail. Technically speaking to meet the spec the cable should be tested to fall within specifications for signal delays and losses, but I have a gut feeling the quality control on my cheap cables is not the greatest. So while the short cables you can probably get away with crap, anything on the longer end might be worth getting something other than the cheapest.
"Time Travel" forward could be viewed in the relativistic sense based on time dilation. So you just have to move really fast to "travel" into the future.
No. But it is still worth the read for the most expensive distilled malt beverage served inside a squirrel.

jmp_nyc writes "The developers at Turborilla have remade the 1983 classic game M.U.L.E. The game is free, and has slightly updated graphics, but more or less the same gameplay as the original version. As with the original game, up to four players can play against each other (or fewer than four with AI players taking the other spots). Unlike the original version, the four players can play against each other online. For those of you not familiar with M.U.L.E., it was one of the earliest economic simulation games, revolving around the colonization of the fictitious planet Irata (Atari spelled backwards). I have fond memories of spending what seemed like days at a time playing the game, as it's quite addictive, with the gameplay seeming simpler than it turns out to be. I'm sure I'm not the only Slashdotter who had a nasty M.U.L.E. addiction back in the day and would like a dose of nostalgia every now and then."
MojoKid writes "From October to December, the advertising departments of a thousand companies exhort children to beg, cajole, and guilt-trip their parents for all manner of inappropriate digital entertainment. As supposedly informed gatekeepers, we sadly earthbound Santas are reduced to scouring the back pages of gaming review sites and magazines, trying to evaluate whether the tot at home is ready for Big Bird's Egg Hunt or Bayonetta. Luckily, The New York Times is here to help. In a recent article provokingly titled 'Ten Games to Cross off Your Child's Gift List,' the NYT names its list of big bads — the video games so foul, so gruesome, so perverse that we'd recommend you buy them immediately — for yourself. Alternatively, if you need gift ideas for the surly, pale teenager in your home whose body contains more plastic then your average d20, this is the newspaper clipping to stuff in your pocket. In other words, if you need a list like this to understand what games to not stuff little Johnny's stocking with this holiday season, you've got larger issues you should concern yourself with. We'd suggest picking up an auto-shotty and taking a few rounds against the horde — it's a wonderful stress relief and you're probably going to need it."
I am more curious about the more widespread precedence this could set. All the RIAA needs to do is get the FBI to set up a link for free music downloads, and they can confiscate you computer. I see a new tactic coming.
