you're assuming that the electricity has not gone out, or there is plenty of accessible fuel for melting that snow into water. you're also assuming that the snow has not had a chance to become contaminated by environmental factors (animals, roof runoff, salt spray, etc.)

if you talk that nebulously about anonymous, you are ceasing to be talking about anything at all.

which makes it a fairly accurate description. You may consider any individual activity that Anonymous is involved in to be a movement. but most of Anonymous will be uninterested in any individual movement. Any activity you take part in, where you don't want to be identified, could be considered an act of Anonymous, regardless of whether you want to be considered a "member" or not.

Blizzard Won't Stop World of StarCraft Mod 129

On Wednesday we discussed news of an impressive-looking mod for StarCraft II that transformed the game into a WoW lookalike, which quickly drew a copyright infringement warning from Activision Blizzard. The company has now released an official statement green-lighting the mod for continued development. "'It was never our intention to stop development on the mod or discourage the community from expressing their creativity through the StarCraft II editor,' Blizzard said in a statement. 'As always, we actively encourage development of custom maps and mods for StarCraft II, as we've done with our strategy games in the past.' Blizzard went on the say that it's looking forward to seeing development of the mod continue, and that it has invited Winzen to the company's campus to meet the game's development team."
