They said, however, that they'll make sure their forthcoming legislation "contains explicit language prohibiting the president from doing what President [Hosni] Mubarak did."

This smells like a PR move more than anything.

Legit concern or not, they hadn't seriously considered this unintended consequence and that it and of itself is cause for concern in their apparent lack of foresight in how government powers can be abused and used against the populace. I'm glad they put in some language to limit presidential powers to arbitrarily kill the Internet but they didn't add much.

Nevertheless, the feds should not have the authority to shut the Internet off. It's constantly under attack by hackers around the world anyway. The Internet is already a constant security concern. Internet providers already have the power to shut their own networks off if there's a serious security or threat to the network and they are best equipped to deal with such a circumstance anyway.

Blue, short of Creston's outstanding feedback, you might consider joining the NFL. You'll get a set of elbow pads with the deal..?

Seriously though, I hope it improves and recovers for you!

9mb is probably accurate as it needs a ton of data to calculate collision detection for bullets and other types of ammo.

9MB and 9mb are two entirely different things. You affirmed what I said - 9mb (megabits).

did DICE ever release an official 64bit version of BF2? that might help in this situation.

No. They might with the new Battlefield play 4 free due soon.

6. Egypt's Internet blackout gets even blacker. Jan 31, 2011, 23:59 LittleMe
 
I don't believe it. Those nut job conspiracy theorists saying that Egypt is having a revolution and that their govt shut their Internet down. Conspiracies like that don't happen. Governments are first and foremost out for the populace's own good and would never work against that. In fact, Mubarak gives everyone in the country a big warm hug every morning. Government oppression can't be the cause of half the population of Egypt makes less than $2 a day and dependent on food programs, which the IMF forced Egypt to pull back on.

I don't understand how Youtube functions as a highly profitable business. Always seemed to me they are getting discounts on their bandwidth or some sort of subsidy. How can they possibly pay for 1080 vid based on a 1/100 chance (or less?) of an ad click? NSA data sharing payments maybe?

WOW. I hope they can get this fully working! I saw a 128 player server in the browse list a few days ago. I guess this was it!

9mb of bandwidth isn't that much these days. I presume the MB is a mistype, and 'megabits' is what was needed. 9 MegaBytes/sec is a lot but still doable.

Game stutters slightly on some systems despite good performance (cause known, fix pending)

This is my pet issue with the game right now. Once it is fixed I'll play it through. Willing to wait for working MP, but do want.

I still don't get what games everyone is playing that don't do this.

The Galaga/Ms PacMan machines don't have this problem. No loading lag at all.

Homefront preview sounds pretty good. I watched the PC version interview atomic gamer did also. Game sounds pretty good. I wish there's a demo to try it before I buy it. The MP looks like a lot of fun.

Fingers crossed.

I was playing this and thinking how fantastic it would be to play a modern Ultima game like this with a huge explorable world, beautiful scenery and all the finer details of a deep RPG experience. What a great foundation this game has laid for the industry to expand upon. In the mean time, it's a great game. I presume Magikca II is being planned..!??

2. Netflix- ISPs who charge by the gigabyte are ridiculous. Jan 27, 2011, 13:43 LittleMe
 
Low bandwidth consumers could save a lot of money on a per-gigabyte plan. Why all of a sudden does Netflix have clout when it comes to how and what Internet services I can buy? Oh yeah, they like 'central planning' by the FCC that help us subsidize their own business model by lowering the transmission costs of Netflix' high bandwidth users.

Uses GFWL. Let me guess, no dedicated servers, no server browser, grass and foliage that magically disappears at a distance that exposes everyone in a very counter intuitive way.

I seriously hope they make a great game. I'm not waiting with baited breath.

There are some new gameplay vids posted on YT. It's a decent arcadey shooter for younger gamers (teenagers).

It's a generic console fps with health regen.

Poor man's CoD4:MW2:BO?

I'd say it's a poor man's BC2 since it has destructible environs. But since BC2 can be had for not much more and BC2 is a much better game, there's no compelling reason to get this game, my opinion.
