Don't go there. It's not about politics it's about money.
You say that as though there was a difference.
I use a press but I have a big problem with it: they're all apparently made of thin glass. This means that, by the time the coffee is brewed, it's almost cold. Thankfully I had an old tea cosy around, but now I'm pestered by people asking why I have an ugly hat standing on my desk.
Talk about first world problems. What I'd really like to see is a coffee pot that's made of, well... pot.
You mean 063?
Better to use it in chopsticks if you ask me.
Tea is a symbol of the imperialist British empire.
That must be why it's so popular in Ireland.
Somewhat sadly neglected, my Risc PC now gathers dust in a damp garage, but it made me the aspiring-to-efficiency programmer I am today.
And mine turned me into the vitriolic why-the-fuck-doesn't-this-modern-crap-work-as-well-as-that-twenty-year-old-Acorn-in-the-loft?! bastard I am today.
Horses for courses, eh?
...it became became the new Acorn Archimedes computer which was used by the British Schools to teach kids how to write computer programmes.
Speaking as someone who was brought up with BBC Micros, pointy little A3000s and a single majestic "don't you dare touch that" RiscPC, this turned out not to be the case in many schools. Certainly there were often computers aplenty, some running quite good educational programmes but most didn't have anything in the way of programming tools, especially the ones with RiscOS. The Micros were much better as anything you wanted to do on them started with a command line (only a kick in the backside away from learning BASIC) but the later models didn't include any development tools whatever unless you count the hidden command line...
...a command line that was so rarely needed they hid it. Acorn were ahead of their time in so many ways; it's a shame they didn't manage to do better outside the UK.
It's not an issue of viewing cheating sites; Steam is looking for DNS lookups performed on DRM servers (not the Steam ones). Many cheats are paid-for so, in a cruel twist of fate some might say, they use DRM to check if the cheater has paid for the priviledge of doing so.
gaben himself has said that this tactic only lasted a matter of weeks anyway, until the cheatware started futzing around with the player's DNS cache to avoid these checks.

Anyone who hasn't read Manna, go do it! It is worth it.
Apart from the second half. The author does a good job showing how technology can be used to turn people into mindless worker bees, then later pull the rug out from under them. Sadly he/she doesn't do nearly as well when it comes to talking about how things could be done right. The Australia project(?) was very much in need of fleshing out.
Call me when they release these "classified documents", name the "mandarins" concerned and find someone who can give a more reasoned opinion than Nijel "why does this man deserve equal coverage on the BBC?" Farage, otherwise I'll just assume this is just more of The Telegraph's usual anti-EU ranting.
Oh, look, the Mail's covering it too.
For heaven's sake, there's more than enough EU bumbling going on as it is without editors concocting more of their own.
