Out of the Blue

It was a pain trying to play Battlefield 2 yesterday with the authentication servers down... the way the game hangs when your login doesn't work is, well, not good. A post on Battlefield Nation suggests that some sort of DDoS attack was underway, also expressing frustration with how the game hangs under these circumstances. Hopefully their speculation that this behavior can be addressed in a future patch is correct.

British Teen in Hospital After Disney Ride.
puh-lease. kids are such pansies these days.
nobody ever injured themselves seriously on rides 20 years ago. you just threw up, passed out, and went home.
what's next, mandatory helmets on the merry-go-round?
