If I kick all pirates in the nuts until they start bleeding out their mouth, who's going to crack the DRM when the publishers find another excuse for it? Remember that DRM usually stops game rentals and resale. There's money to be made with DRM, so I would expect publishers to keep it, pirates or no pirates.

Have to disagree with you regarding gamer keyboards - standard generic versions do not come with led lights, macro keys, windows key lock, and the ability to handle a zillion keys pressed at the same time (Logitech G15). That last point is important - I've had keyboards that didn't handle 3 key combinations correctly.

From the wikipeida article: "If one accumulates matter at normal density (1 g/cm3, for example, the density of water) up to about 150,000,000 times the mass of the Sun, such an accumulation will fall inside its own Schwarzschild radius and thus it would be a supermassive black hole of 150,000,000 solar masses." Quite fat, that momma.

Thousands panic as previously mocking, unlikely to be fulfilled conditional dares and promises suddenly became payable in the near future.

In other news, stocks for "When pigs fly" are at an all time low as customer trust wavers, and demand for freezing equipment hits an all time high as a certain not to be named power figure decides he's had it up to here with the heat. If you'll excuse me, I'm off to eat my hat.
