There actually is a new season (or two?) planned, as well as a new movie due out in April

In October 2012, Barrie Dunn officially announced a third Trailer Park Boys film. Filming began in March 2013 and ended in late April. The film is set to be released in Canadian theaters on April 18th, 2014.

On July 4, 2013, it was announced that Tremblay, Wells and Smith acquired the rights to Trailer Park Boys and confirmed it would return with an eighth season. It may not air on television, but on their website, Principal production took place from July-September 2013, back on location in an existing mobile home community in Truro, Nova Scotia.

In late September 2013, Mike Smith announced on the SwearNet Facebook page that the cast and crew had also returned to the location in September to shoot content for two new specials, that Season 9 had been "rough cut" into ten episodes, and that SwearNet was seeking network deals in addition to its plans to webcast the new material.

On December 27th 2013, Smith confirmed on Twitter that a ninth season will go into production in Spring 2014.

Sorry to break the news to you, but the fact that you "don't know" of something means very little. Manunt was originally given an M-15 rating but the AG of the time appealed (not the game publisher) and it was then refused classification. No appeal was made. Postal 2 is a prime example of a game which was refused classification and was not appealed. Reservoir Dogs was again refused classification and not appealed. Source:

AMD CEO Dirk Meyer Resigns 123

from the quick-exit dept.
angry tapir writes "Advanced Micro Devices has announced that Dirk Meyer has resigned from the post of CEO, and that the company is beginning to search for a new chief executive. Meyer resigned in a mutual agreement with the board of directors, and the company has appointed Thomas Seifert, the company's chief financial officer, as the interim CEO. Meyer was installed as CEO in 2008 as a replacement to Hector Ruiz, just as the company was making its way out of rough financial times. In October, AMD posted a third-quarter net loss of US$118 million."
