Comment downtown lockdown (Score 2) 529

I work at 55 Metcalfe st which is the corner of Queen and Metcalfe. I can see the parliament buildings from one of the corner offices. We are still locked down and cannot leave the premises. I think every police officer in the city is down here they are currently doing a grid search of buildings between Queen and Wellington streets.

We pay our ISP to provide 'queue service' in the event our connection/Exchange box goes down. When 'selling' this service to the bosses I put it this way - How much will it cost the firm to not only be without email during an outage, but to lose all emails sent to the firm during that time period?

I feel your frustration though... IT is often seen as a 'zero payback expense'.

Great post I agree completely. For those looking for similar FPS titles without the 'run-and-gun' theme, check out two Battlefield2 mods (you need BF2 to run them) - Forgotten Hope 2 and Project Reality.

For a real milsim-type game (you will need patience for this one) try Arma2. There is even a free version of Arma2 with non-HD graphics and some other limitations.. but it gives you a good idea of the depth of this 'game',
