Comment equivalent on Wii ? (Score 1) 63

Some friends of mine, a couple, love to play Baulder's Gate together on their PS2.

They just recently acquired a Wii, and wanted to know if there are any equivalent games for the Wii?

I tried to do some research for a 2 player simul dungeon crawler but honestly couldn't find anything.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your time,

RIAA Litigation May Be Unconstitutional 281

dtjohnson writes "A Harvard law school professor has submitted arguments on behalf of Joel Tenenbaum in RIAA v. Tenenbaum in which Professor Charles Nesson claims that the underlying law that the RIAA uses is actually a criminal, rather than civil, statute and is therefore unconstitutional. According to this article, 'Nesson charges that the federal law is essentially a criminal statute in that it seeks to punish violators with minimum statutory penalties far in excess of actual damages. The market value of a song is 99 cents on iTunes; of seven songs, $6.93. Yet the statutory damages are a minimum of $750 per song, escalating to as much as $150,000 per song for infringement "committed willfully."' If the law is a criminal statute, Neeson then claims that it violates the 5th and 8th amendments and is therefore unconstitutional. Litigation will take a while but this may be the end for RIAA litigation, at least until they can persuade Congress to pass a new law."

Comment Follow-Up By OP (Score 1) 586

I just wanted to give a follow-up on my search for a 64-Bit Virus solution.

I ended up going with AVAST Free for now.

Installation was pretty smooth with the hardest part being updating my firewall to allow AVAST to grab updates.

In case anyone wonders, the following AVAST proggies need outbound access through the firewall:

* ashServ.exe
* ashWebSv.exe
* aswUPdSrv.exe
* Setup\avast.setup

"avast.setup" was a bit hard to configure because the "choose program" widget in the Vista firewall app only allows you to select ".exe" files - Just choose any nearby .exe file and then modify the input box by hand to point to avast.setup

If I end up having any problems with Avast, then I'll look into NOD32 and then Kaspersky

Thank you to everyone who took time to reply.
