No, the mainland is an autonomous, rebel area controlled by Communist bandits. Taiwan is the seat of the Chinese government.

Yo Dawg, I heard you like China, so I put a China in yo China so you can rebel while you rebel!


Anti-Gamer South Australian Attorney General Quits 104

dogbolter writes "South Australian Attorney General, Michael Atkinson, infamous for the banning of R18+ rated games and the censoring of political comment in Australia, has quit. The recent South Australian election provided a massive swing against Atkinson's governing labor party. As a direct result of the South Australian election result, he is standing down. Hopefully someone with half a clue will assume the vacant post and overturn the decision to ban adult oriented computer games."

Comment Re:They Would Simply Rotate Them 180 Degrees ... (Score 1) 427

... but unfortunately they granted a patent on that in 1987 and don't have the money for the absurd licensing fee the patent holder is asking. Unfortunately the "novel" method patented covers both clockwise and counterclockwise but they're currently looking into rotating them 179 degrees, making the document slightly slanted but avoiding royalties.

Of course, one would hope that the Patent and Trademark office would be smart enough to realize that a 1987 patent expired in 2007.

HA! Patent's don't EXPIRE any more!
