Comment get from other countries (Score 1) 372

I see other people commenting that it would be cheaper to just go to another country to get your pills because it is cheaper but how is this possible? You can just go to another country with your prescription and get your pills? A pharmacy will just take your prescription from a doctor that is not even from the same country? A doctor doesn't need to be licensed in that country to fill the prescription? Can anyone answer this?

Looking at the video the cpu and power supply fans are still attached and spinning. How does this affect the life of the fans as the are pushing around a liquid instead of just air? Do the fans do much as all the components are in the liquid? Does anyone know more about this?

A Week After Apple's Fix, Flashback Still Infects Half a Million Macs 161

Sparrowvsrevolution writes "Security firm Dr. Web released new statistics Friday showing that the process of eliminating Flashback from Macs is proceeding far slower than expected: On Friday the security firm, which first spotted the Mac botnet earlier this month, released new data showing that 610,000 active infected machines were counted Wednesday and 566,000 were counted Thursday. That's a slim decrease from the peak of 650,000 to 700,000 machines infected with the malware when Apple released its cleanup tool for the trojan late last week. Earlier in the week, Symantec reported that only 140,000 machines remained infected, but admitted Friday that an error in its measurement caused it to underestimate the remaining infections, and it now agrees with Dr. Web's much more pessimistic numbers."

Most indie games seem to take one approach or the other, either be a clone, or be completely different than anything else (or a clone with a *twist*! that might as well be a clone).

What kind of game do you want that isn't a clone and not something completely different than anything else? What does that leave you?
