the project doesnt stand a chance. Nintendo are notorious for stomping on anything resembling its IP never mind advertising as a copy.

each country that have novichok hold it precisely to identify it. When you hold virulent materials they all tend to have markers in some way or shape. I used to work as a biomedical scientist at a grade 4 lab in manchester, the stocks of TB were of a specific strain and although could be compared you always knew where they came from.

It has never been said but the strains of novichok held by the uk were probably stolen from the same stock tested in the attack. this information was most likely shared with other countries hence the knowledge of its origin. Then all of a sudden the gru officers just happen to be in the area on the precise days.

noone will say we can positively identify where it came from because an admission of 'our spies stole the original comparison from russisa' wont wash. The fact that France also stole a comparable sample that was tested also holds true. The labs were under surveillance as i suspect Russia wanted to know who else had stolen what strains. perhaps russia have a number of strains and some are more secret yet STILL had been stolen.

BG and BG2 were good for their time. As was planescape torment (i didnt like icewind dale). However, I dont think they age well and dnd 2nd edition is a mess of difficult character tables and finicky rules. I also liked the eye of beholder series before them but they all belong in the past.

NWN with mods was far better and NWN 2 was my fav ruleset and setting.

I wont be bothering with BG3

arguing technical definition of stealing vs moral norm of stealing makes it ok. Hmm. try sitting in a movie theatre without paying too.

the correct response would be to hop around shouting 'ow, ow you just ran int0 me' whilst videoing on your phone. see how defensive she gets then.

so musk tweets a load of rubbish, company loses a bit of share price and he gets fined 20M and loses his seat. The president tweets rubbish, countries lose gdp and he gets applauded?

funny world we live in.

you need your head reading if you deliberately connect a microwave to the internet. Just look at the firewall logs for your blues sever to see the number of hack attempts per day (we run snort on pfsense at work, the traffic for known exploit attempts is frightening ).


now imagine a microwave exploit setting the microwave to cook for 4 hours when you are out or asleep. Now imagine you left something in the microwave.

democracy 3 was a reasonable game but you needed to mod out the peculiarities such as brain drain (when you had overwhelming tech advantage ), water shortage ( with perfect eco) etc.ill wait until a sale.

over the summer kids wanted to watch incredibles 2. I have a 30% discount card at the cinema (free with work phone contract). Even with the discount card (which also works of food and drink) it cost me 30 for 4 of us. Holy moses.

Film had been out about 2 weeks and the place was a ghost town, probably a dozen people.

as a sysadmin the only reason we use office is outlook. Nothing has the same integration as outlook. I would happily transition to openoffice or libreoffice.

problem is, we use sharepoint and outlook as a core business tool.

licensing is cheap compared to (as a reference) the likes of adobe or filemaker (cheaper than mssql for our web backend)

that lion is a bit mental. Our cat has a random number generator, if you stroke more than the random number (which may or may not be an integer) then you get bitten and scratched. If you are doing a tummy rub then expect full rear claws, front claws and teeth.

quinn, that wouldnt happen in france or Germany. i think the swiss have similar laws too. Wolfenstein had a censored version, there was a court case to allow a version of wolfenstein to be classed as a different kind of art - an exemption was applied I believe.
