Great, let's keep offering a crutch to crappy programmers instead of letting them be shamed out of the industry when they cock up something that nowadays is quite well understood.
But like the body of this post, the reality is not the revelation you were hoping for.
an unworkable online environment for content creators and content providers
Boohoo. They wanted someone else to do their dirty work for them, but now they have to actually use the legal system as intended which requires a great deal more effort. Cry me a river that they don't get a short cut to justice.
Please lets vote Turnbull in, enough is enough (already)
If a Double Dissolution happens Turnbull (or another Lib, I doubt Turnbull could run) that might just happen, so long as no-one utters the words "work choices" they should get in.
You assume the majority of voters are concerned about this single issue. Most wouldn't even know there is an issue. Others honestly think filtering and stopping "pirates" (who fund terrorism, didn't you know) is a good idea that must be done by the government (think of the children!).
Nope, unfortunately the people who understand the pitfalls of both are vastly in the minority.
Larson hated the new series
I have to say that's a refreshingly astute observation coming from a large entertainment corp, one that like so many entertainment companies so often takes the safe option of flogging a concept, genre or property to death.
In my experience he's right about revisiting old games. I've fired up a few of my old favourites, and still play some arcade games with MAME, but the memories and feelings of nostalgia almost always are far better than playing the actual game. Among other things, taste changes with age.
If they were to do this right, you could mix the nostalgia of your experience playing the old version with some of the best things of today's consoles or PCs, like new inputdev (wii anyone). Throw in some astute in jokes and tributes to elements of the original (remember how Day of the Tentacle had the full version of Maniac Mansion as an in game surprise) and you could have a winner.
Of course, we're all a bit jaded by bad experiences with remakes and sequels (and those god-awful prequels- you know the ones...)
Maybe I should have clipped the quote to just
We have too many people on this planet as it is
Find me evidence to support that claim.
I think anyone with a brain knows an offworld solution is ridiculous.
We have too many people on this planet as it is, and there's no good way to get them off the planet, the energy requirements are simply too great
Oh come on moderators! There isn't even a link in support of this wild claim (not even a lame one to a wikipedia article).
+1 insightful != +1 agree
At least attempt to unsure make claims based on some facts.
Yeah everybody, I know, this is slashdot. What a shame.
Congratulations, I think this is the most insightful comment I've read on slashdot in 2 years. We need another moderation option- "actually insightful".
