eldavojohn writes "GamePolitics reports that South Korea's Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism has announced two new policies that will force underage gamers to pick a six-hour block of time (midnight-6 AM,1-7 AM, or 2-8 AM) where they will not be able to play 19 online role-playing games. While it targets most popular MMORPGs, some popular games like Lineage were left off the list."

An anonymous reader writes "A team at NIST (the National Institute of Standards and Technology) used berylium ions, lasers and electrodes to develop a quantum system that performed 160 randomly chosen routines. Other quantum systems to date have only been able to perform single, prescribed tasks. Other researchers say the system could be scaled up. 'The researchers ran each program 900 times. On average, the quantum computer operated accurately 79 percent of the time, the team reported in their paper.'"

Seriously, is there nothing more interesting going on in the world right now? If this is indeed the case, that employees don't get paid before they log in, then go and buy a friggin' timer, or get a mac or linux, where these things are easy. Better yet, keep the machine running all night long at the expense of your employer! BETTER YET: hire somebody to walk around and turn on all the machines PRIOR to all the regular employees coming in! Disappointingly uninteresting story.

The universe does not have laws -- it has habits, and habits can be broken.
