Steam and Origin gamers knocked offline by SEPARATE DDoS attacks

Boethius

E.A's origin system has never been available to me, certainly not with regard to Battlefield 3 anyway.

Hey, is that CSI: Hackers on TV? Oh, it's Microsoft's Cybercrime Center

Boethius

A.S.B.I from U.S. America.

So it's only a matter of time before corporations start arresting people for not showing proper respect, as they see it, for their bottom line with simple little excuses like... oh, malware came off his computer yer honour.

'What university did you go to plaintiff's lawyer?'

'Boys own'

'Oh he's guilty as f then, how long do you want to give him'

Just like an A.S.B.I. from America.

Why UK slid £150m to tax-exempt phone-mast master Arqiva

Boethius

Hairly mairly

That actually is the way to extend the network coverage, give some smug shites more money or accept that privatisation never has and will not work without an hidden public sector. Given that Goerge Osbourne has chosen not to accept that the private sector does not work it is only available for him to hand £150m to his drinking buddy for investment that costs half as much to deliver.

'Ultimate nerd chick’ prompts C64 clone cancellation

Boethius

Phat attitude.

Presumably any project involving the Commodore products line will have to be vetted by that woman Jeri Ellsworth who doesn't own the brand and who must be retarded not to be playing Xbox by now but for £150k they could have easily built on old piece of crap simply by breaking a c64 up and stuffing it into a Zboard just like Ellsworth does.

Fighting Fantasy and fantastic fights in tights

Boethius

Ha, pencil sharpenings.

I haven't seen those for ages, they smell don't they, and what an emotive comment by the author of this piece. They actually use to tell you to sharpen your pencils at the start of the book. :-D

Magic mystery malware menaces many UK machines - new claim

Boethius

That sinister.

It's exciting to think that someone is actually watching their malware now, it's another step closer to real cyberwar. One person, who perhaps might not have sinister motives, could take over all of the computers with this program and force them to run weather predictions.

Boy Scouts get Game Design badge

Boethius

That's fats not scouts.

You can't do those things outside so they're not what scouts are expecting to do, they should just set another club up called fats for those things just so that something remains for the active folk.

Brit comic-book-guy-vs-gangsters film goes straight to Xbox Live

Boethius

Peculiar value assertions.

I don't know how they cost these products for maximum returns but I know it's badly because at fifty MS points everyone would watch it but at five hundred no-one will unyet they still chose the latter price which is a point well covered.

Re: When the XBox comes in

No, it's probably because we play games with Batman in and he was in a comic, a product concept which features in the movie.

Look out! PEAK WIND is COMING, warns top Harvard physicist

Boethius

Wind out yer backside, non?

I still think wind power is the way forward, keep up with it and the technology will improve, to generate more power per unit of specific force wind with smaller turbines within communities.

It begins: Six-strikes copyright smackdown starts in US

Boethius

How might they enforce?

The only way to enforce this is by house number so how will those U.S. Americans be able to check if their potential new house has an history of blocked broadband and if it's not that serious why do they persist in going on, these government folk?

Sony promises PC-based PlayStation 4 for Christmas

Boethius

Hello friends of gaming.

There are too many comments in this one to bother with but we all just want to make them don't we anyway, this is mine. I don't like patent exploitation but this is another crazy WTF, they'll block the nub on a case of a smartphone with litigation but two stereoscopic cameras that do the same job in the same type of application don't seem to bring cause to raise an eyebrow. I'm just seriously thinking WTF when it comes to law. Where are those Anonymous heroes to stop this class domination because that's all it can be, there are some special deals going on behind the curtain here, either that or people go to university to become insane.

Kiwi Coroner says Coca-Cola helped kill woman

Boethius

Caffeine is addictive.

Coca Cola knew of the addictive properties of it when they sold it to this woman and they chose to bundle it with sugar to compound the problem so let's see some jail time for someone.

US company aims patent-gun at Australia’s e-health system

Boethius

Bullshite.

How often do you not create a wonderful thing because you wonder if some toad will patent it, personally I create whatever I can without letting that affect me but I think that the consumer must have lost out at some point or at least the world is missing some unique items. These patents aught to be banned altogether they're complete shite, stifle human development in just about all ways apart from that of the cnut, and are just another way for those daft cnuts to run around acting like air is a commodity.

Antivirus update broke our interwebs, howl Win XP users

Boethius

Damages.

There's no way that software companies should be able to apply clauses saying that the damages they cause don't matter, they're doing it too often and should have to make amends for it.

3 Brits banged up for £300k VAT scam

Boethius

Just the same old choice crimes.

I'm not sure if they've got a right to decide if these people were trading or not but just recently the trustees of a childrens' charity bought bonds with all of the charity's funds, £176m worth, then sold them for £17k to a friend presumably with apparently no law broken. It's the same old story of this being the sort of crime that an aspirant man commits so it's punished whereas the plonkers behind the desks always get away with it.

'Online sex abuse of children is growing trend', warn Brit net cops

Boethius

Contradictory title and content.

We need a new offence to cover these crimes because it's not really sex abuse if it's happening online, it's more like a trust betrayal with a deviant sexual motivation, these 'funny' crimes compound a nasty situation.

BANG and the server's gone: Man gets 8 months for destroying work computers

I have to say, although the criminality of his actions tarnished the outcomes of his impeccable taste, his choice of corrosive material was inspired.

How to destroy a brand-new Samsung laptop: Boot Linux on it

Boethius

That's their silly mistake.

Samsung didn't make a Linux machine so why are people complaining that this laptop doesn't run Linux, it's not designed to! That's the freeware crowd is it?

Crap security lands Sony £250k fine for PlayStation Network hack

Boethius

That's 250 of their quite good T.V's or 25 4k TV's

See the title header for this post. The CEO must have paid that fine himself, not that fining is a good thing but why make a joke out of a serious situation.

Google pulls 'racist' Make Me Asian app

Boethius

No racism in the way an asian looks.

If a person wanted to look like an Asian they wouldn't be racist, an app. that facilitates this is therefor not entirely racist but only could facilitate the practice of racism if a person were to make their friends look like asians before laughing at them or posting it on a social network site. That however has nothing to do with the app. which simply can't be blamed for race discrimination because that has been around for longer. It can't be blamed any more than hoods can for burnings, unless they did it and they're from the 'hood of course.

Sony PS3 extends lead over Microsoft's Xbox 360 by a cool million

Boethius

Once the dirty trick is out.

How many of those last million consoles sold are the new model, barely functioning, with no motorised parts PS3 consoles that are being given away currently? There's no advantage with regard to sales in having those PS3 units out there because they won't be used.

I did wonder why this article ended on completely a different not to which one might expect, it's almost two articles in one and one without a title, it was a good article though and worth reading which is what it's all about in the end.

Perfectly sound logic this is not but rather the murmerings of the retarded - rightly - it's just not the case that people only touch screens because they're drawn to do so by the functionality on iPads lol. WTF is this article anyway.

Taliban official's email blunder leaks 400+ contacts

Boethius

That's not clear though.

Which can't be exploited by the U.S. to kill those contacts because in doing so they'd be breaking privacy policy law. You're not allowed to utilise contact details without the owner's permission but let's see what they do regardless if it's not a plot by the Taliban to misdirect the drones that is.

In the loop: how Halo defined a new decade of first-person shooters

Boethius

FPS.

There's a lot of 'almost' words in the article and the author doesn't seem certain at all about any of the trend setting assertions he's making about Halo. Halo is not that good, it plays well, that's all, but it hasn't got any real substance. To validate my point I'd like to point out that shields and health have always been separate, that's the point of them, and there was even body armour in Doom.

Virgin Media nukes downloads after SuperHub 'upgrade'

Boethius

The wireless functionality.

I tried for ages trying to get the wireless to work on mine after my partner found use for it but to no avail, it just seemed to pack up after I turned it on and off a few times then one day it just started working again which I think led to my girlfriend losing some trust in me.

I saw a program about a lawyer in U.S. America who was so shit that anyone who chose him for representation whilst facing the death sentence got it and they talked about it on that program on channel 4 so might that be liable or is it another rule for one and not for another scenario?
