"abandonware" refers to being abandoned by the publisher, not by the fanbase.

Uh... the quote from Sony in that article does NOT say that the virus invalidates your warranty- it just says that installing unauthorized software will void your warranty and can also give you a virus.

...I think 3DRealms is just a tax shelter that makes a pretense of development to stay legal.
Well, obviously- do you think it was just a coincidence that it was named Duke Nukem "Forever"?

Check the bottom of the press release:

Super Hero(es) is a co-owned registered trademark.

Did Marvel really get a trademark on the phrase "Super Hero"?

Blue, you might want to consider switching ad providers. The policy of your current one seems to be to let the advertisers submit anything they want, and only check it for maliciousness if there's a complaint. Of the websites I regularly visit, this is the ONLY one that I've heard of having this kind of problem, and this isn't the first time it's happened. Maybe other websites just don't make mention of it, but you do seem to be having an especially bad time with this.

Check out this story about the photos:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/09/02/AR2005090201894.html

The black "looter" was seen actually taking the items from a store, while the white "finders" were picking up things that were floating by them, hence the different adjectives.

He didn't "begin to talk at morgue", he began to talk long after he had left the morgue and begun rehabilitation.

The chances of being attacked by a shark are about the same or worse than winning a lottery. The chances of being attacked twice in the same day are astronomical.

That's only if the probabilities are independent. If there's just been a shark attack, I would think the probability of another one occuring soon after would be much higher, since there is a violent shark swimming in the area.

Couldn't they afford to buy therr own suitcase for the test? Seems kind of dumb to use an actual passanger's bag for this.

I remember hearing something about this a few years ago... I guess the new development is that the guy's finshed conducting a study on the device and is about to publish something about it in a journal. Here's a link I found to some of the older stories about it:

Yeah, the author claims the article was written 21-Jun-2001. Most of the information in it (such as Creative's server being hacked) is probably no longer relevant.

The Slashdot article is wrong. The hotmail pay service is the one increasing to 2 GB, not the free service.

Second US cow tests positive for BSE Jun 29, 2004, 13:47

This article totally messed up their interpretation of the statistics. From some anonymous source they learned that the false positive rate of the test was 1/1000... so far, so good. But they then say that the test is "wrong about a positive result only about once in a thousand times". This is not equivalent to the previous statement. A false positive rate of 1/1000 means that about 1 in every 1000 cows tested will show up positive whether they have the disease or not. But, if a cow does show up as positive, the chances the test is wrong could be almost anything (9/10, 99/100, whatever), depending on the prevalence of the disease. If, as the article states, the rate of disease is much less than the rate of false positives, then most of the positives will be false, and the probability that a positive is false will be much greater than 1/2, and not the "1/1000" the article claims.

Just had to get that off my chest

Thanks for posting that ebay link. I just reported them all to Ebay as selling of beta software is prohibited.
Uh... he said they were selling accounts, not the software.

Actually, it looks like NewEgg doesn't have any of the x800 Pro in stock- maybe they just haven't been updating their prices since they don't have any to sell?

If you don't have any cicadas, consider yourself lucky. I live in northern virginia, and everyday we have to shovel an inch deep pile of writhing, rotting bugs off of the bottom outside step leading to our basement (though in the past week it's gotten a lot better). They land on you and fly down your shirt when you go outside, and the sound they make is so loud it can hurt your ears. The ground around our house looks like swiss cheese from where they all popped out.
