Closed beta is this weekend, I know that. I think they're doing a stress test.
This is the only choice. Play now if you're in, play later if you aren't, but either way play it. It's groundbreaking.
right now we are developing stronger armor when what we should be doing is stopping the shooter/spammer.
Seems easier said than done! I don't have numbers to support this, but I would think most form spam comes from botnets. As long as Oracle (Java), Adobe (Flash), and Microsoft (ActiveX) products (among others) continue to have security issues, malware will continue to thrive. And so will botnets.
On topic, as a web developer I ended up just custom coding a little check box that asks if my users are human and programmatically placing the form submit button the page after that is clicked. Since a bot can't see an input button on the form it skips the page. Maybe that's too simplistic for experts, of which I am not one, but it has resulted in less user complaints than the old ReCAPTCHA I used. This number one does look easier to use, but it's still bulky.
Thanks for the good points.
Good luck running the 25 foot HDMI cable from the room with the PC to the room with the TV, as adolf pointed out.

No longer weakly-typed.
I'm not much of a fan of the Total Recall remake myself, but is a thread's description the appropriate place for such opinion?
Not to mention that a decent-sized smartphone is not exactly comfortable in the front pocket when sitting down, and also it involves standing up to fish it out and answer a phone call. First world problems.
While I would defend to the death his right to publish his ravings on the internet, he still has no inherent right to my money.
Apparently a lot of other people feel the same way, hence a boycott.
I tried to read Ender's Game once. A friend lent a copy to me. I don't think I got further than the first 20 pages or so when I found myself thinking that, gee, something's not quite right here. This sounds just as contrived as a Chick tract. So I looked up his background and lo and behold I found out he was a Mormon.
Maybe some day I'll finish Ender's game, but if the first few pages are any indication, it's a contrived, shallow story that attempts to create a pity party for a contrived, shallow protagonist. Apparently I'm not the only person who thinks that, and apparently there are people who think that who don't even care about gay marriage.
Neon Genesis Evangelion was a much more compelling story with similar themes. Then again, I just set a pretty low bar for a compelling story.
That being said, maybe the movie will be better. Perhaps I'll torrent it at some point in the future and watch it opposite Battleship.
It's pretty easy to look back at works written decades ago and see them as contrived because we have been exposed to so many books and movies in the genre since then that use similar plot lines. Ender's Game was unique because the shallow protagonist you refer to is an enigma. He is a combination of understanding well past his years, genius beyond the level of nearly all adults, and yet sees everything through a child's innocent eyes. The telling of the story with this combination is far from shallow in my opinion. Aside: I also very much enjoyed Evangelion.
Nope. Nobody force feeds me marketing now. There's no problem to solve there. No force is in play. The only force I experience comes from the government. All else is at my option. You're a bit bewildered here.
I am having trouble figuring out how this is a response to my comment. Did you reply to the wrong comment? If not, where did I imply that you had a problem to solve? I was explaining how you misinterpreted the previous poster's comment.
Also, if you live in modern society, you are subjected to billboards, media ads, and other marketing at every turn. You don't have a choice about what to see on the side of the road. It's there, you look at it. This is force-fed. If you want to pretend you have magic pretentious blinders and don't see them, fine, have at it.
