I don't get why the service isn't free already. If I'm not mistaken, barring any renaming issues the process is entirely automated, is it not? If they fear a large increase of people losing items from it, maybe they could take an Everquest-like stance for their GMs, in which each GM had a flowchart script where every outcome was "Tough shit, it's your fault."  
Huh? I'm sorry, I was thinking about cake.

I do use Firefox, for the record. The redirection has only happened when trying to read comments here at Blue's News, nowhere else. I'm at a loss as to any cause, and I can't think of any other virus and malware scanners to try after having used so many heh. Only reputable ones, of course. I have HouseCall pounding away at it now, the last thing I could think of, but it's so damn slow it could be tomorrow before it's done.

While posting in Legal Briefs just now, I was once again redirected to another save-your-system website (this time SysDefence - Online Protection) which my antivirus blocked as an infected website. I've been doing malware and virus scans like crazy since the last time this happened so I'm all but 100% sure it's not being caused by something on my end. I suppose this website could be a false positive but I doubt it - websites like that are total scams anyway, they just try to infect your computer and then sell you something to fix it.

Everything about the movie industry disproves the "piracy is stealing all my profits" argument, including how this year they've made more money than any year ever. $10 billion.

As far as I'm concerned, and as far as the law is concerned if I'm not mistaken, Blizzard built the house and Blizzard can set the rules. Freedom of expression doesn't give someone the right to be a jackass. If your freedom of expression harasses others or incites panic, the police will make you stop. If you go into someone's place of business and start spouting racial slurs or insults at people there, the owner is either gonna call the police or have someone large throw you out on your ass. All people ever say is "freedom of speech" like those are the only three words that matter. Someone comes onto my property and starts insulting me, I'm calling the police. Someone comes onto my property and starts threatening me or my family, well, they'll walk again someday. Freedom of speech ends at the property line, real or virtual. You want in Blizzard's house, you abide by Blizzard's rules. You don't like Blizzard's rules, build your own house.

Be great if congressmen had term limits. Two terms and you're out. It may not stop corruption but it would make it a hell of a lot more expensive if a corporation had to pay a "start-up fee" every few years to get the new guy on their side faster, as opposed to paying less for someone who's been on the take for decades.

I dunno, while Star Wars Galaxies was technically ready for release, it was kind of boneheaded to not have spaceflight in at launch.

Especially since it mentioned that some of the golf balls exploded when struck. I'd be pretty cheesed if I spent big money on fancy golf balls and the first one I hit turned into a powdery cloud. Then again, I'd never spend that kind of money on something that could wind up in the bottom of a lake unless I was going to go after it.

Well, to be fair, Steam is the only digital distributor of MW2 for now. That may be why it stays so high in Steam's top 10, come to think of it - nowhere else to go.

Such a solution would make it even simpler than MMOs already are; instead of pushing buttons all the time to do stuff, we would instead occasionally push a button while watching. Not a recipe for success, I hope.

There was some really old LAN game that did that, I think it was simply called Bridge Crew. Never tried it myself but having it on a LAN would solve problems. At the very least you could run over and do it yourself, and maybe hit the person who's supposed to be doing it. I don't see how you could make that work reliably online, let alone in an MMO. When it all fell together, it would be really great and memorable. On the other hand, something would go wrong 9 out of 10 times at least especially if you had to pick-up to fill out the roster.

Next we'll all be collecting an assortment of clothing and body armor that will have a garish color assortment but we'll put up with it because it gives us the bonuses we want. Nothing screams manly like a dwarven hunter in pink pants.

Is Tales of Valor worth getting at that price? From what I hear it doesn't add much.

Maybe we'll get lucky and Arkham Asylum 2 is just a placeholder name to get people following it.

So I was looking at the comments on last night's On Sale just now, and I was redirected to some IGuardPC site, which my antivirus blocked because it apparently has a Javascript exploit. Apparently it was just the one time because I've gone back now and it's not redirecting me. Just pointing it out because anytime I see anything that pops up and says I need to protect my system from some evil, I'm pretty sure the evil will come from the same place.
