The screensaver I always got a kick out of was that one with the little dude stranded on the island. I think Sierra made it?

Cutter, you have exhibited more hate and vile than any republican or conservative that I have ever known. Way to win people over! You have probably had a intelligent comment or two over the years, but I just can't get through that barrier you put up. Of course, it is just as likely you haven't.

Can someone explain to me how you can make a game based on the movies that is not also based on the books?

No surprise here to anyone with a brain. This is simple capitalism at work. Supply growing to fill a demand. There are good number of folks, I'd say a majority, not willing to pay $40 or $50 or more for a game. Why don't publishers get it?

10 years ago no one had a peanut allergy, now it's an epidemic. What gives?

If that were true then nobody would buy anything - clothes, DVDs or anything else - if they weren't on sale.

Yet that is exactly how my wife and I conduct ourselves... I can't remember the last time we paid retail for anything, including a meal at a restaurant. Our motto is "retail is for suckers".

Talk about not being able to see the forest for the trees. I firmly believe if games had lower retail prices, it would cut down piracy, rentals, and the second-hand market. I believe this applies to CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray as well.

10. Re: WoW Character Re-Customization Dec 11, 2008, 16:25 Atomic
 
I don't play WoW; not worth the money to me for the time I'd have to put in. But that being said, I think they should be able to charge whatever they want to charge, for whatever they want to charge. It's a free market, and the consumer will decide if it is worth it or not. If someone wants to do this and is willing to pay for the privilege, why the heck not? Why give it away when you can charge for it? A company selling a product or service owes you nothing. If they decide to be generous and give something away, great, praise them for that generosity; but you can't fault them when they don't. They are under no obligation to do so.

Why do people always complain about what other's do with their money? I think some people just enjoy being the turd in everyone else's punchbowl.

It's truly amazing and sad that Prop8 passed.

Hey, we can't have everyone equal! That just wouldn't be right!

This isn't about equal rights, it's about special rights. I'm not gay, and I can't marry a man. Neither can a gay man. So, there, we are equal. Seems absurd, but think about it. You don't want the law applied equally, you want an exception to be made.

When did either candidate ever say they were going to better the lives of the AMERICAN individual?

It would be a lie if either did. No President has that much control of individual lives. But even if they said it, I wouldn't vote for them. I want less control over individuals lives, not more. The best thing a government can do is get out of people's way. There isn't a single government bureaucracy that has improved the efficiency or quality of the thing they govern. Not one.

Vote independent or something else if you can't bring yourself to vote Democrat, or don't vote at all. That too is a political statement.

But unfortunately, neither are valid options in today's environment. Both parties have succeeded in pretty much crushing any other third party options, and with the media coverage the way it has been, not voting is pretty much the same as voting for Obama. I'd like to vote Libertarian; fat chance. That vote would essentially be for Obama.

Most elections simply come down to voting against something you don't believe it versus voting for something you do, unfortunately. You are choosing the lesser of two evils. The days of a voting for someone with true integrity and that doesn't lie to you are over (if we ever really had those days to begin with).

You're naive at best if you believe Obama and Biden are any cleaner than McCain and Palin. But of course, you won't talk about that, and when anyone does, it is called "dirty campaign" or "hate speech", or you'll claim the source has "a right wing agenda"... ad naseum. Get over yourself. Politics is dirty business for all involved; and I don't see an end to it anytime soon.

We need revolution. It's time to dump the tea in the harbor again.

I think the real key is to not click yes to every popup, and to not use Microsoft's mail clients.

Good point. My previous response that Blue challenged was also based on the fact that I only use Gmail for all my mail (I have Gmail pull my mail from my other accounts as well using POP3). Gmail's AV filters are very good.

That's what you think... read the document I just uploaded to your desktop. Only kidding, but are you serious? Oh, I see you are talking about you game machines. Would you seriously say that for my circumstance, reading hundreds of emails a day and following links to countless websites to keep up with things? And if you would, you should share what you're Smoking

Ok, fair enough. I guess I saw you making a general statement, and I answered with one. Admittedly, if I was in your position, I would feel better with that extra layer of protection.

I highly recommend Avast or AVG, both free. I have them running on my wife's and mother's computers, respectively.

That being said, I'm not sure what Blue is talking about. We are in an age where anti-virus is not needed, if you are careful. I haven't run it on my game machines in years, and nary a problem.
