And I would fire you the first time you pulled that tactic with me. If you accept employment, you agree to work for the terms and pay offered. If you want specific terms, you request them prior to employment.

I'm on a late-2008 24" iMac, 3.06Ghz / 512 Geforce 8800. My computer lags so bad in Dalaran after the 3.3 patch, I feel like a kernal panic is due any moment. One of the *first* things I noticed from the graphical changes they talked about was this weird fog in the Stormwind background behind my human paladin on the character select screen. Something drastic was changed, and not necessarily for the better.

And that attitude is exactly why we have programs such as MADD -- to provide facts, not wild internet theories. "A couple of beers" is why I recently stood in front of my commander, and witnessed my troop lose a stripe (for DUI). "A couple of beers" also killed my best friend when I was 19.

Maybe....just maybe if you're a ginormous food-addicted beast will it have a lesser effect on you from "a couple of beers" than me. But that's not what kills people. It's their feeling of being superhuman; of how it won't happen to them; how 2 beers and drive becomes 6 beers and drive later on.

I'm not attacking you -- I'm attacking that train of thought. If you drink.... even if it's just one .... CALL A TAXI. Please.

Infinity Ward Fights Against Modern Warfare 2 Cheaters 203

Faithbleed writes "IW's Robert Bowling reports on his twitter account that Infinity Ward is giving 2,500 Modern Warfare 2 cheaters the boot. The news comes as the war between IW and MW2's fans rages over the decision to go with IWnet hosting instead of dedicated servers. Unhappy players were quick to come up with hacks that would allow their own servers and various other changes." Despite the dedicated-server complaints, Modern Warfare 2 has sold ridiculously well.

1) What's your suggestion to fix the problem? I see a lot of complaints, but so few solutions. You may have suggested something like.... hardening systems thru more secure software (abandon Windows -- whether you like it or not, it's the best target due to being used by everyone). Or, maybe beefing up a cyber attack strategy? No... instead, you complained only to complain.

2) It's not a Presidential Apology Tour. You could have made a good point, but instead you put your bias at the forefront of your post. To do so merely puts the reader/listener in a defensive position, rather than paying attention to the point you're trying to make. I don't recall seeing a press conference from Beijing where Pres. Obama is apologizing for our ways.

Modern Warfare 2 Not Recalled In Russia After All 94

thief21 writes "After claims that console versions Modern Warfare 2 had been recalled in Russia due to complaints from politicians and the gaming public over the infamous airport slaughter scene, it turns out the stories were completely untrue. Activision never released a console version of the game in Russia." Instead, they simply edited the notorious scene out of the PC version. They did this of their own volition, since Russia doesn't have a formal ratings committee.

See, this is the asshat comments that drive me away from Slashdot. You stated that about Microsoft/Google in a way to present bias --- that MS is evil and Google is not. Microsoft *did* setup Bing to steal users --- that's how a business gets customers in an established area. You don't see McDonald's saying "No, we'll let them have the 30-39 age group" to KFC.

Google did the exact same thing. Or do you believe that they didn't setup a search engine to steal customers from Yahoo, Altavista, and others just to sell ads?
