I want to see a study on the violence associated with the war on drugs. Oh yeah, sorry, we chase ghosts and fictitious enemies.

A passively entertaining game. Glad to see the expansion. Waiting for the $5 gold edition box at '5 Below' stores.

Seriously, one of your gameplay elements is sitting on a bench eavesdropping? Right.

I loved that part. No game I played had tried that before. It worked. It was like an interactive movie.

Lastly, the game opened with you having access to all the cool shit so there was no real anticipation of unlocking something - I knew what was out there.

Are you for real? Unlocking something? Is this what games have turned into? Chasing unlocks and getting endorphin rewards for each one? We must be mice in a lab experiment.

Bought it very cheap and still didn't get my money's worth. One of the very few games I disliked within a short period of time.

For what AC1 did, it did well. It was repetitive, yes.. But it also has some very nice elements. IMO they tried something innovative and it succeeded, but needed the refinement that AC2 brought.

I don't think this is really a new development in the news. Glad to see it getting media attention of course. There is a global child abduction slave+prostitution ring and iirc, it's connected with the UN. This is just a small part of a much bigger picture.

Gaming PCs? Probably about 3 million.

I would venture closer to 10+ million.

RTFA headline. The topic is UK console base to which I believe ASJD was saying 3+ million gaming PC's for just the UK which sounds about right if one says that any PC with a reasonably modern graphics card (past four years).

UK population is 61.2 million. 3 million gaming PC's means one in twenty Brits has a gaming PC. Sounds like a reasonable guess.

3+ million for the world population is grossly understated so he was referring to UK. 10+ million for just the UK means 1/6 Brits has a gaming PC?

That said it seems the government will try to use this opportunity to clamp down and free speech advocates are fighting back, its looking like an all out cyberwar is about to break out.

Right that's what I said. There's a motive for the establishment to create fictitious and controlled cyber war where real freedoms to question them are eliminated while their power to quench dissent is expanded. The media establishment is playing their assigned role.

Yes I'm sure they have worked with brain physiology and behavioral experts experts on how to maximize this effect. Really..

1. WikiLeaks Supporters With DDOS Attack. Dec 8, 2010, 13:59 LittleMe
 
I'm learning the the wikileaks issue is bogus, an intentional release of information. It's an Internet 9/11 designed to justify the Feds expanding their tyrannical war to the Internet. Read Cass Sundstien's 2008 paper on how they intend to silence (internet) opposition. There's apparently nothing very controversial about the information that wasn't already in the news media.

Good. Now go to your city/county government, with whom Comcast has partnered, and make that sentiment known and organize with others who feel as you.

They'll keep doing it as long as you allow it. They want monitor everything you do. You are always under suspicion as a terrorist. Don't step out of line. Don't speak the truth. Don't question authority. Shut up, play your games, watch your movies, watch TV and pay your debts and taxes. Go out and shop.

The SSN system is extremely antiquated and a terrible identification system. But like most government systems, it's nearly impossible to eliminate.

3. Re: Understanding the Level 3/Comcast spat (FAQ). Dec 1, 2010, 22:57 LittleMe
 
Reading some of the well written comments in the thread below the FAQ, I can see how it can be considered a NN issue. I see both sides of the argument. L3 is certainly playing a game that Akamai could not.

Do I think NN will solve the issue? No. It could make it even worse. For example, if L3 is allowed to dump a 5:1 ratio of traffic onto Comcast's network what are the consequences? Maybe metered bandwidth usage for their customers. That might not be a bad thing, or maybe it would be.

The issue is very difficult to resolve. I can think of many different ways it could play out. But that's what markets are supposed to do, not the government. Sure, Comcast is in a position to exploit the consumer AND the content providers. That's the real problem here. The duopoly is the problem, not the semantics of how they peer with Internet backbone providers and content providers. That's why I've said all along that NN won't work and the only real solution is to open up the market and allow competition and consumer choice.

1. Global pool of IPv4 addresses set to run dry in weeks. Dec 1, 2010, 22:28 LittleMe
 
The concern is blown way out of proportion. If people can buy and sell ip blocks (and they do) then prices will need to go up for a while until IPv6 is farther along. Markets deal with and solve problems like this all the time.

1. Understanding the Level 3/Comcast spat (FAQ). Dec 1, 2010, 22:05 LittleMe
 
And there it is. It's a peering dispute. It's not even related to Net Neutrality. L3 is just crying to the government mommy so it can suck the government tit (by getting peering deals that favor their bottom line).

Learn the difference between a corporate dispute and a genuine concern! Well, there is no real genuine concern and this is one of the better examples that can be cited? The sky is falling! The sky is falling!! Net Neutrality is going to save us all (and Level3's expenses)!! PANIC IN THE STREETS! ZOMG!

Thanks Blue/Flying Penguin.
