It was technically called Ultima X and it was scrapped. They used the 3d resources they had created in the latest revamp of Ultima Online. If someone sunk a massive amount of money into the project, it could possibly turn out ok. But more likely than not they'd try and make a WoW clone like everyone else and fail miserably.
Lets just get a few things strait: The only reason an MMO has a forum for its own game is so they can control the speech of those in the forum. This is just a further attempt at stifling the speech of those in the forum. If the WOW players were smart they'd flock to some other non-blizzard controlled forum. But its just to easy to use the official forums, and that's why it works.
I wouldn't even notify Microsoft... I'd just release it and laugh a hearty pirate laugh. Microsoft should count themselves lucky I have no haxor skills and the people that do give them any notice in the first place.
I think this is a clear case in which Obama needs to use his new powers to shut down the internet until this is resolved!
Why is Rodger Ebert a brilliant man? In fact, why is his opinion on videos even relevant? Maybe we should get his opinion on astronomy while we're at it?
Has anyone seen the episode of Top Gear in which they test drive this car? Basically all the claims by the company are BS. The charge lasted a fraction of the time claimed, the time it took to charge up the car was far longer than was claimed, and they ended up blowing the motor on it at some point. It was failure after failure and this was on a car that costs more than some Ferraris. Good luck Tesla investors.
I imagine after large numbers of the population lose access to the internet people might revolt. Of course, 1% of us are in prison right now, mostly on drug crimes. So maybe we'll just sit by and let it happens. Who knows?
"Why would I want to pay for a second phone I don't need?" Oh I dunno... maybe so your employer couldn't read all your texts?
Yes it does. Unfortunately most people don't understand what the right to bare arms was intended for.
I have a 30yr old jeep that meets emissions every year. It probably gets better gas millage than your car (and no I don't mean that bullshit sticker in the window, I mean your REAL gas millage.) The problem is people don't know how to do basic maintenance on their own cars anymore. The computer compensates for the fact the owner never changes their sparkplugs, oil, belts, air filter, etc... when the computer finally can't make enough adjustments to keep the car running it finally dies... the owner takes it in and OMG! It needs a new everything!! How could that have happened? It was fine last week! A well maintained hummer probably gets better gas millage than any 5+ year old prius with a bad owner.
I agree 100%. Very good explanation btw.
And everyone always hated MSFT for this sort of thing when Apples 10x worse.
How many people would this agency employ? The manpower required to do this would be staggering. Unless they think they can just say "Give us up to date network maps!" at which point 99% of the ISPs out there would say "Network whatsits?"
