They took over a known child pornography site, and continued to operate it. They used an existing service (not set up a new one) and monitored existing users (nothing about enticing new ones). I don't see this as being hugely different from sitting outside an business known for selling drugs, and writing down the info of everybody who goes in, or tapping the lines, and recording phone numbers. Further they got a warrant to do exactly that.

Comment New Autoduel? (Score 1) 111

Autoduel on the Apple IIe was my gateway in to a lifetime of joyous experiences involving a number of geeky board games and models. First was Car Wars, followed by Battletech, Warhammer 40K, and so on. I've always loved Car Wars, but it really feels like the complex physics and movement mechanics in the game can best be simulated via the computer. Have you had any success getting modern video game companies interested in doing a new version? PS. Had the honor of meeting you at a convention about 10 years ago, it was a real treat, nice to find out that some of your heroes are pretty decent folks in real life.
