no problems here
I've had an xbox 360, PS3 and PC, been with virgin media for years and never had any problems.
If it was a VM issue wouldn't it be the same for all games on all platforms not just black ops? there would obviously be a lot more outrage if it was a VM issue.
fire up an MMORPG, play on US servers and start a PVP match, no issues at all, same with any FPS, while I was typing this I thought id give modern warfare 2 a test and theres no lag!!
I commend VM for taking the time and wasting resources looking into the issue.
it wont help him
hasn't done mckinnon any good, hes lost every appeal even with his aspergers, even though he admitted he did wrong and just wanted to be tried in the UK
this ryan kid is going down, for a long time, guilty or not the soca thing is irrelevant, you can bet the justice system will make an example of him as a deterrent to anyone else thinking of hosting IRC networks for criminal organisations.
You wouldn't open your home up as a safe haven for terrorists so why did he open up his pc as a safe haven for lulzsec?
God insults irish catholics every day by making the sun orange, seriously, god hates irish catholics, he can't stand them, he hates them so much that on a good evening he'll turn a huge part of the sky orange just to mock them
I know i sound rediculous but no more rediculous than the stuff some irish people come out with
Best quote ever
"I didn't look or think about it. I just felt wet in my chest area. I thought I was going to die."
If it wasn't the "i thought i was going to die" part
Business as usual
So i start the night off, get sucked into trying a great new product, things are going well i end up getting shagged, catch a virus and i crash 3 hours later, go into hibernation for 5 hours, reboot and nothings quite the same afterwards
the country is f*cked
Labour are bribing people to vote for them, the torys are unelectable since the recent announcment by the shadow science guy that he wont take advisors seriously and sack them if he doesn't like the look of them, and the lib dems are a joke party who have left a trail of destruction in every city they've had power in
It doesn't matter who wins the election, we'll all still loose
"losers" is a valid description
I've never heared of N-dubz before reading this article but dippys actions has proven that the woman was correct in calling them losers, but thats slightly insulting to losers
I think the best thing he could do now is kill himself, he needs to take himself out of the gene pool before he spawns monsters as repulsive and disgusting as him.
I wonder if dippy is cybersafe now?
some good news at last
The justice system actually worked for a change, when will people like the BPI and government relise that Joe Bloggs knows alot more about the times we iive in
dont the BPI relise that the people on a jury are the people their ripping off?
it would be like a loan shark expecting to win in court because his victim with 2 broken legs refused to pay 300% interest
The insanity of people
Who do people think its acceptable to risk peoples lives just so they can get to work? you may well be the best driver in the world but driving in these conditions is insane, you could easily spin off and mow down a group of pedestrians.
people in non-critical employment should stay at home as a rule
Americans are scary
I find it shocking that people of faith are offended by a naked women, if god wanted us to wear clothes Id of been born with clothes on.
clothes were invented by man so a naked women should be less offensive than a fully clothed women.
Its also weired that the followers of the most barbaric religion mankind has invented think they have a right to talk about ethics
They had intelligence?
This is news to me, I thought the police got what they wanted through bullying and harrasment.
I once lived next door to a police officer who was as corrupt as they come and used her power as a police officer to terrorise the street, then she'd appear in the papers winning awards for her service to the community.
The police are nothing more than a government sanctioned mafia
@everyone calling them "skiddies" WTF?
Skiddies dont do social engineering, clearly you people get your hacking knowledge from a skiddie forum or urban dictionary
Tell me, what downloadable hacking script will manipulate someone into giving you vital information on a telephone call?
In the UK arse antlers is never used, tramp stamp is a much more common term, I'd never heared of arse antlers until today
Wait for it...
There'll be a video up with some screaming eyeliner wearing bloke shouting "leave call of duty modern warfare 2 alone"
Paris because she complete modern warfare 2 on veteran within 20 minutes
you wont find that here!
we have massive unemployment, massive debt, get electricity from other countries and cant fend for ourselves but its videos like these that make me proud to be British, we stay professional at all times and don't reverts into a bunch of primary school wannabe actors when we're in work
all of the people in this video should be sacked
He did them a favor
The americans should drop the extradition request, he did them a massive favor, the only people who should be punished are the idiots that didn't set passwords
i want one
anyone know if vodafone do these as a personalised version? i would be more than happy to pay a monthly subscription so everyone who cals can here me say "ring ring, ring ring"
paris because shes full of win
damn the bystanders
They've clearly cheated the women out of the darwin award she so rightly deserves!
not only did she fall on the track infront of a oncoming train but she actualy crawls over to the third rail and gives it a kick!
stupidity at its finest
hahaha poor mandelson
he really has no clue? the 3 strike rule will only push P2P back underground, P2P, copyright infringment, piracy what ever you want to call it has been around alot longer than torrents and napster and if things get too strict ill just load up backtrack and find a router within range to crack
EU = retarded
Theres nothing wrong with microsoft shipping their product with their browser, I don't see the EU slamming apple with fines for shipping OSX with safari instead of IE
Its very easy to stop using IE on a windows box, you just install a different browser
The UK is rubbish
This recession has blown away the smoke screen that the UK can support itself, for the past 10 years the banks have been making us money, they've been lending to businesses that have been employing staff.
none of these businesses have been making money, they claim to make an annual profit but thats false whilst the company is still in debt.
Why is the government so concerned about getting the banks lending? its because there isn't a single industry in the UK that makes money, its all a smoke screen, they borrow off the banks to make up their losses.
The UK is a sinking ship and labour's at the helm.
The piratebay haven't broken any laws
The people who are breaking the law are the people uploading the copyrighted material not the pirate bay
If i stood outside a music shop with a sign saying "find your music here" and someone decides to steal a CD, am i the one who should be held responsible for their actions?
The music industry isn't loosing any money, in fact their proberbly making more money since free downloads have spawned shops like itunes, the music industry have turned into thugs, their the scum of the earth.
What about Gary?
He's commited exactly the same crime as the BBC, if he found evidence of UFO's the information would of been in the publics interest so when is the government going to give him some support?
loosing all hope
People that allow their PC's to be compromised shouldn't be using the internt, most people will never change, they'll buy something they don't understand, never work out how to use it and then blame someone else when it all goes wrong
Why is the BBC wasting time telling people who won't keep up with the times how to keep their computers secure? within 6 months there'll be a new trojan and the dumb fucks will be back in the same situation.
Why are people siding with Microsoft?
I don't understand, Microsoft are forcing retailers to ship new PC's with Vista, if you want a stable operating system then you need to pay extra for XP. this isn't right.
They should be offering both operating systems otherwise you can't get a stable PC without paying extra,
Someone tried comparing this with car sales, its was a rubbish analogy but maybe this would help clarify the court case.
BMW are the only car manufactuer in the world, the newest BMW is on offer for £30k but it breaks down every 50 miles and you can't fill up the tank at most petrol stations, if you want the engine from the earlier model that runs fine and you can fill it up anywhere you got to pay £50k.
Remember now you've got no choice but to use BMW but their abusing their monopoly to make extra cash by selling a faulty engine in a new car and then charging people to get the car "fixed"
Ivell isn't a proper job
Looking at their website reminds me of the first office job I had, working in a small office trying to sell outsourcing to large companies, normally those businesses are a front for something else.
Don't know how to use google?
Try typing "coldplay .torrent" you get much different results.
Google is just as guilty as the piratebay
Why hasn't the EU stepped in?
I'm suprised the EU hasn't started fining apple, If i bought an iphone i'd be locked into using it on o2 and can only use apples applications, doesn't sound like a good deal for one of the most expensive phones on the market.
in the closet?
I bet that this kid was from an extremely religious family and was convinced his homosexual urges were the act of the devil, he thought he was evil so commited evil acts.
The best chance he has is to plead insanity.
nothing to do with DRM
The failure isn't down to a system preventing piracy, this was a failure of the mechanism used to prevent people cheating online.
If they didn't have these systems then online play would only be won by the people with the best aimbots.
He's entitled to a fair trial
America wants to make an example of Mckinnon, all the trolls here obviously have no idea what the situation is.
He wont get a fair trial if hes extradited, he'll be charged under terrorism laws and made an example of for embarresing the previous US government.
If he was guaranteed a fair trial then extradition wouldn't be a problem, but a fair trial in the US is very rare.
The people who win court cases in the US are the ones who can affored the most expensive lawyer, I dont think Mckinnon has the same budget as the US government.
Another excuse for the EU to milk Microsoft
This is complete crap, and I think the EU are acting like criminal mob bosses, they don't like Microsoft, they want to make some easy money so their looking for some excuse to scrounge some cash out of Microsoft.
If windows was sold with no browser at all that would do nothing but hinder people, how does the EU expect the average user to get on the internet and download a browser when they have no browser to start with?
Microsofts lawyers will rip the EU to shreds over this, where apple's lawsuit for bundling safarii with its OS?
What a moron
Read is a moron, he got the the exact phone he was bidding on, i hope he looses in court.
I'm never flying on a virgin plane!
Theres something very wrong if Virgin are ignoring concerns by its staff about safety, instead of investigating the problems, they give the staff diciplinary action for voicing the concerns to the public.
Anyone got the number for the Health and Safety executive?
how do they make the stuff visible to construct it into something? the article gives the impression that the material bends light around it, so its invivislbe from the start, no way of making it visible.
