People should not have pets. Animals belong in the wild and natural habitats.

Anything sad about Atari makes me feel sad. The gamer in me really treasures Atari and what they have done for all of us. Get well Atari!

Only so far as the golden era of video games is concerned, even then they were acting like a bunch of assholes.

I am not familiar with the politics. I just have fond memories of going into the arcade and playing Tempest (my favorite game of all time) for hours. A simple and cute era.

Firewall settings can typically prevent this.
Not unless you want to stop clients from even connecting to the server in question.

You can control packets, search strings, etc. I'm talking Linux not Windows.

The Linux community needs to develop an OSI type model that everyone agrees to. If this happens there will be a standardized approach that should be fairly distro neutral, default based, and universally compatible. I imagine that Valve is pushing this with Steam support for Linux applications. This is purely conjecture on my part.

The Quake 3 engine is still one of the most stable and efficient engines. Especially when the open source crowd fixes the exploits and bugs.

Perhaps it will provide easier access to the Start Menu.

Does this represent the Xbox One? The graphics do not impress. So far the next gen consoles do not seem to provide any graphical improvement over older Nvidia demos. Nothing looks realistic. When will that happen?

If I recall this has been around for a long time with various game engines over the years. Firewall settings can typically prevent this. Once the engine goes open source, the vulnerabilities are squashed - like ioQuake3. This is why PC gamers should support open source gaming.

Also, support companies like Valve that make constant updates and care about the product and gaming community.

WASD and mouse are the best way to play first person shooters. I can't imagine using a controller.

Frank Klepacki is a musical genius. Besides just the game music, his independent albums are amazing and well worth the purchase.

Between rabbit ears (over 40 channels, most in HD) and the library, I never pay to watch television shows or movies.

Every MMO eventually becomes that sick, old, dying cow that is difficult to milk. They just keep trying until it tips over.

Edit : Mythbusters actually tested the wood vs brick thing in an earthquake in last week's episode, and it was incredible. I expected the wood house to crumble like a cookie, and it just kept happily standing. The brick house got torn to shreds.

Yep, that's very true. It is better to have it flexible and absorb the shock than break or crack. As to tornadoes, I'd rather take my chances with a flying piece of wood than a flying brick. Both cases are arguments for lighter building materials. It's the same with cars, better to let it take all the damage, crumple up, and and save the driver.

Besides my opinions that people need to move away from severe weather areas, I am glad to see you are safe. Now move west!

There are many advantages to living in those areas like natural resources and the weather events tend to be more rare than people realize. There are hundreds of tornados recorded every year but most are not very destructive or occur outside of population zones.

Boiling hot summers, freezing and snowy winters, the rest of the seasons are humid with bugs. Not seeing the advantage here.
