This already kind of happens. Certain games can cause the room to heat the room almost unbearably at times.
Sure, 15% of scientists feel that science and religion are not incompatible. Why doesn't someone do the same study on clergy?
When it comes up, I find that simply saying "I don't eat meat" short circuits that whole (often profoundly stupid) conversation. For some reason, claiming that you're a vegetarian seems like a challenge to people who eat meat. I suspect it's because the word itself sounds like a label for belonging to some group devoted to a particular cause or belief system.
Infinity Ward didn't just hand off some cool game ideas to Activision. They developed CoD4 from an idea to an implementation. Activision simply publishes the finished game.
It will be what it's supposed to be quicker if developers can afford to concentrate their efforts on it.
I had a friend who would destroy people in Mortal Kombat. He would then offer to sell the a move sheet for $5. They would often oblige. They wanted to play just as well.

Now THAT is enterprising.
I suspect that cranky Slashdot posters don't often reflect the views of the the open source community that benefit from said contributions.
I'm not sure he would, but it's not hard for me to imagine Mozilla courting Microsoft.
why in the world is Bing better for privacy?
My guess is that Mozilla is looking for new sources of funding now that Google has released Chrome.
Damn Small Linux is very convenient. I have an old ThinkPad from '97 with DSL. This allows me to connect it to the wireless network and run all my apps remotely from my main box.
Applications run faster that way than they do from the harddrive.
As you've demonstrated, "blue shell" mechanics allow new people to play with old hats. The seasoned players, in turn, have to rely on strategy more than brute force.
I enjoy these kinds of mechanics. Playing most games at a certain skill level alienates most other players. This makes it difficult to find other players. Everyone hates playing against "that guy."
Mad science doesn't kill people. People kill people.
George Selden did.
That's my biggest problem with the Windows key. I love the functionality it provides, but it seems every keyboard has it in a slightly different position and a slightly different size.
Unless I'm on *my* keyboard, my fingers always hit the wrong meta-keys because of it.
