Aus steps up the nanny state mission
So Saints Row 4 has been refused classification in aus because they disapprove of the Alien anal probe gun. Apparently is might upset people (not just the characters on the receiving end of it either). The mass murder is fine though....
Here's a novel idea, how about the people that don't like it, don't buy the damn game?
Re: MacGyver It
DuctTape = Answer to all problems :)
isn't that just another way of saying "licensing"?
If i'm reading it right, logically it isn't too bad.
The servers are effectively independent of each other, and most people would plug the power into separate feeds. True the shared disk is a single point of failure, but it is in any standard cluster (unless you start going down the resilient SAN route).
Not saying I'd go for one, but it's also not a terrible idea for a SMB that wants a bit of resilience.
The one that really bugs me
Is the digital download stuff, things like microsoft points for the xbox. depending on which site you go to the price changes, but they're region locked so unless you've got a proxy you're sh@t outta luck.
Although to be fair oz really needs to get it's own house in order before moaning at the multi-nationals. WA is always more expensive than over east.
Beer - cos over here it's AU$11 a pint :(
Re: I do not want to sound like
I think you mean Kelly Brook in Piranha 3DD was nothing short of Lovely! :)
Legal protest or Zombie Apocalypse?
Being that most of the owners (the people that actually bought the hardware, not the l337 h4x0rs that hijacked them) of the machines that at "sitting in" are unaware that they're doing it.
This is less like and organised group of people occupying a location, and more like the the evil wizard sending his army of minions to attack.
It's not an illness
He has a choice, he's just choosing to be a bum...
Beer: Because the dad deserves one for the amusing approach to solving the problem :o)
Why is it never just the fault of the individual, there always has to be something that forced them to do it. This kind of mentality really gets on my wick.
At the end of the day people need to accept that some people are just plain wrong, they choose to do these things, ultimately because they want to.
If it was down to a particular, game/movie/activity, then there would be a lot more of this stuff happening.
Until people stop trying to make excuses for these people and actually place the blame with the person doing the crime, things are not going to get better.
Beer - because this sounds like a pub rant.
Do the crime, serve the time
Regardless of what anyone has done, if you get sentenced for a period of time, that's what you should serve. I have no problem with 1 for 1 for time served before, but you shouldn't get a bonus for it.
What this is leading to...
Apple obviously has the patent for making profit, anyone else making profit must be stopped!!!
