Re: ::shakes head:: @Ben
It's not my job to educate you, if you are genuinely interesting in why you are wrong then do the research.
Like I say earlier, Gox was not a bank, I'm not sure what you think your point is.
You also seem quite upset that I didn't reply to a post you made, it's nothing personal I only generally come on here once or twice a day. Sorry if I left you madly pressing f5 awaiting my return.
Had Xenon on the ol' speccy (128k +2, not for the purists, but that's the one I grew up with and it was MINE rather than a family machine or hand-me-down).
Xenon 2 on the Amiga 500 after I finally managed to deliver enough papers (IRL, not the arcade :) ) to afford one.
I'd have trouble thinking of a more impressive port on the old speccy, apart from the lack of colour it was perfection, and that hardly ever happened for speccy ports. I reckon Xenon 2 was probably the first time I didn't have to feel a bit embarrassed about my love of computer game music...a love that died with the birth of the .mp3 soundtrack.
I feel really very sorry for the gamers of today, where are their Bitmap Brother/Bullfrog/Psygnosis? Not that the Bitmaps went anywhere, they just mysteriously stopped, I've always wondered what the story was there.
While this is all very amusing, I can't help but point out that the last alleged DPR was sitting on about $28 meeelion without stealing from anyone. This was apart from what the Feds took from Silk Road itself.
If it is a Ponzi scheme, why on earth would they cash out so early with so little compared to what this market is worth? Didn't the pot sellers of Colorado make more than the stolen amount in the first week? And Silk Road as I'm sure you are aware, sells a lot more than pot to people all over the world.
They fucked up and lost a shitload of other peoples drug money, isn't that a juicy enough story already?
Jean, if music was free then you might have a point...but it's not, so you don't.
I would quite happily pay a reasonable monthly fee for all you can eat media, maybe one day the industry will stop trying to gouge us both.
yet again, the problem there is whether the money I put in, will get anywhere near the artists I would like to support...you not being one of those artists for me.
I'll stick with bandcamp or the old ways for now thanks.
