And no, if the internet ended tomorrow it would be a rough adjustment but it'd happen. For a great many people around the globe the internet still doesn't exist. And even here there are plenty who don't use it or use it infrequently. Shit my brother is a total luddite. Doesn't even have an email account. Once in a blue moon he'll look at a sports site on his wife's tablet but that's it.
Would the world end? No. But a ton of jobs would, including mine. International commerce would take a huge hit. Obviously it could eventually recover, there was plenty international commerce prior to the creation of the Internet. Just out of curiosity, how old is your brother?

Peaches Geldof?

I'm happy to say I had never heard of her and didn't know of her existence until her death hit the headlines.

Yeah, here the temperature is creeping into the 60s for the highs a couple of times in the next 10 days, but the lows are still hitting 35-45. Not getting that "Spring feeling" yet...

Frankly, at this point -- the only thing I care to see about SC is a release date and several reviews of the finished game.

Also, my fav, so far: http://failblog.cheezburger.com/
The "What meetings feel like for Engineers" hit the nail on the head. Lost count of how many meetings in which I felt like that.

Trying to remember the last time I bought game disks outside of Collector's Editions... I'm thinking it was the Orange Box.

I read it, it just left me confused. Is Ricochet 2 known to be HL3, or is that just wishful thinking by fan boys?

Oh, and I was 2 for 4 in picking the final four. If MSU could have pulled it out I would have been 3 of 4. If Florida can win Saturday against UConn I'll win the small pool with my IRL friends.

Did Valve actually say there were working on HL3 at some point?

I'll admit to having purchased two or three CEs over the years -- but this one holds no interest with me.

If Carmack was in the know about this I doubt he would have supported it, what with his own experience in relinquishing control to a higher power.
Maybe -- depends on what the money situation was. If this means more capital to do stuff they might not otherwise have been able to afford to do, Carmack might be supportive of it.

I wouldn't say "never works well", but yes it can be problematic in certain circumstances, and likely to be in this one.

My respect for Carmack has been waning for years...him working for Facebook just sort of kills it off.
Respect his work, not the companies which buy each other without input from him. As I said in the other post on this subject, Carmack hasn't worked for anyone but himself in a LONG time. If FB fucks with what he is interested, he will simply leave.
