Unfortunately, for all the talk of micro-payments, I've never seen a serious attempt at implementing them.

So the problem isn't that commercial websites are greedy, it's that banks, et al, are greedy? Surely there's a simple solution staring everyone in the face that I can't think of right now either.

Also, I'm not discounting the fact that Google is a big part of the Ad Thing's perpetuation. Finding [N] on the internet used to be done differently when you weren't guaranteed money for it...

If the threat is that all the commercial enterprises are going to vanish from the internet and we're going to end up back in a time when the internet was for enthusiasts generating and trading information and content among each other without having to monetize absolutely every fucking page load, then by all means -- I'm on board.

This, so fucking hard. Used to be you spent hundreds a month on modem fees to give your BBS content away.

A group has been working on re creating the orignal SWG (haven't check on the project since last spring), but I would play it again in a heartbeat.

There are actually a few groups trying that.

I'm not affiliated with the devs of SWGEmu, but I have been monitoring their progress as a member for some time now.

They've got a working game, and a lot of passion, but not much free-time to work on it. Check it out if you've still got your old disks!
