I don't give a toss if it hasn't "caught on". I have a DK2 and it's great fun, worth every penny. Even if most of the stuff I can use it with is demo's or just interesting little toys. It's fun. Lot's of fun.

If you haven't tried it then I suggest doing so but you will need a fast computer to get the most out of it.

His saying that he would open source MC eventually pissed me off. Now, the game I have loved for several years is in the hands of fucking microsoft! Microsoft of all the fucking companies. how long before linux is dropped? All development has gone into the windows version since Microsoft acquisition. If he was so desperate to get rid of it why not open source the fucker and keep making money anyway.

Nah, respect has gone down hugely with this fella...though I still love Minecraft :-)

Don't worry, they won't care about your pr0n searches...well, maybe they'll just store them all up for 'later use' should you become a problem in the future.
As Cameron said "For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens: as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone"

Fuck them all. You heard it here first.

>When is the last time someone you know saved a dying SD card or USB drive without windows trialware?

You are joking right?

Last week, my brother presented me with a SATA drive and a USB drive. Both 'broken' under windows. I used testdisk under linux to fix the SATA drive (then copied all over to a brand new drive). The USB drive wasn't fixable but still used testdisk to copy 95% of the files over to another fresh drive. All done easily and simply under linux for free...and my brother was very happy...and he's now learned of the importance of backups.

Windows can go suck a fuck for all I care...I'm just unhappy that I have to work with it daily.

I believe you - and, man that would be so cool!

As for sound quality - one of my favourite performances of 'Old man' is a live one with Neil on on his guitar that I first saw on youtube, with a pair of crap headphones (think it's this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?... work, can't test). Anyway, it's brilliant and to me at least just goes to prove it's the song, the tune, the lyrics that matter and not being able to hear every single frequency in perfect clarity. ...but that's just my opinion. It's also my opinion that people who seem to care so much about speakers, wires, amps etc. are more into speakers, wires and amps than music. I've had the same Technics amp for 25 years...it's fine.
