I vote with my wallet, too. The big name games are really tempting, but I find myself paying for DRM-free indie games. The worst game( in regards to DRM) that I've paid for in the last few years would be Minecraft, which requires a one-time login to play single and always a login for multiplayer.

Comment: Some interesting cooking with centrifuges. (Score 2) 176

I read an article in a magazine about using centrifuges to "[concentrate] the flavor molecules in a powerfully aromatic liquid layer that is ideal for cooking." I also love Sub Zero ice cream.

Despite the coolness and interesting factor, I doubt I will be going out and buying a centrifuge or a bottle of liquid nitrogen for my next meal.

Also has to be said:

DENNIS: I told you. We're an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week,...
DENNIS: ...but all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special bi-weekly meeting...
ARTHUR: Yes, I see.
DENNIS: a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs,...
ARTHUR: Be quiet!
DENNIS: ...but by a two-thirds majority in the case of more major--
ARTHUR: Be quiet! I order you to be quiet!
WOMAN: Order, eh? Who does he think he is? Heh.
ARTHUR: I am your king!
WOMAN: Well, I didn't vote for you.
ARTHUR: You don't vote for kings!

Don't forget Chrono(Trigger) Resurrection, as well as other projects(seems like there were more), that were allowed to go until near completion before receiving a C&D letter. While more justified than the PS3 hacker situation, they could have really pleased fans and made money while doing so. I can't imagine that they didn't even discuss it. I would have liked to be in that meeting. But I know that if it were my company, I'd be making deals instead of sending C&D letters. Especially if their content was good... which it usually is if it's made by a fan.

Any program which runs right is obsolete.
