Submission + - Rockstar uses no-cd patch for Max Payne 2 on Steam (steampowered.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Liamaj posted on the steam forums a screenshot of the Max Payne 2 exe as viewed on Notepad ++.

Submission + - Google Forgets to Renew Gmail's SSL Certificate

conner_bw writes: "Google's SMTP server, smtp.gmail.com, has just expired a couple minutes ago. It appears Google has forgotten to renew the certificate, even thought a Google Groups post warbed that it would be expiring today.
