"It's happened enough that you think you'd start to get used to it," said Todd Hollenshead, CEO of id Software. "But whenever it happens, it's a sinking feeling. It's like somebody died. I don't mean to over dramatize it - I know its just a video game - but this is our lives here."
Hackers have leaked a playable version of Half-Life 2 onto the Internet.
Several of the company's biggest games, including all of the Quake games, have seen their source code leak out. Last year, a playable build of the still-in-development Doom 3 hit the Internet.
from ( Nintendo slipped up by failing to offer a variety of games and franchises that escorted those young gamers through their childhood, to their teens and into their adult gaming days. As a result, it's at the bottom rung of the sales ladder in this generation. Sony (SNE: Research, Estimates), conversely, has that sort of catalog at its disposal.

The PlayStation 3 will not be out until 2006

This has really really really cool programming howto videos: Chaytor would kill 3-10 students to get her hands on this one! Here is a non-clickable URL

The IEEE's treatment of its members living in Iran and other embargoed countries has been a disgrace," says Ken Foster, a bioengineering professor at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and a former president of an IEEE chapter

Visit this cool mofia drink soft drink coke thing. Yeah my grammar can eat you sometimes. And this link is above all three below, go figure ;-)

I have four links for you today. These were originally posted in my AIM away message. The first a picture, the second, an audio clip, the third is info on a cinci music thing occurring a few days from now

#1) Link 1

#2) Link 2

#3) Link 3

#4) Link 4

#5) Link 5 - about a bigger power outage than the one in new york happening in Italy (over a weekend, luckily)

#6) Link 6 - About George W. Bush and oil

#7) Link 7 - About Arnold Schwarzenegger and his groping / misconduct / exploitation / sexual harassment (this is a legal term, american public. get over accusing people people youre done with your lawsuits. people can counter sue you know!) of women. Wow a big handsome body builder who just happens to be world famous has been with fast women. He knows something about sex. He has done things around women. What a shocker! The reporters should dig up more on this.

#8) Link 8 - How to Tell If a Microsoft Security-Related Message (or virus and or patch release description) Is Genuine

#9) Link 9 - A really sweet program similar to something i want to make myself

#10) Link 10 - If this law were to be put into effect in Japan, then people / normal population would be dis-allowed from watching military operations due to closed roads, highways, and off-limits cities. aahm yeah!!!!!!!!!!

#11) Link 11 - Microsoft is made of a stupid bunch of fuckers - especially all the microsoft attorneys. They would rather shoplift an idea (read apple mouse) than invent it themselves, or do innovation research. Their anti-innovation is shown in their acquisitions of their competitors. Using flash content or streaming media in the browser has been illegal for 9 years (October 1994), yet microsoft ignored patents from small unheard of companies with small lawyers. Finally they got their asses whooped in court again. At least this lawsuit wasn't dug out over a century of litigation like their other anti-competitive ones. And now because STILL microsoft is gay - we have to have a pop up box to allow flash content. This is all because microsoft will not pay royalty fees. How gay. They are the market leader. They charge about $100 for windows, and make AOL pay for the AOL software to come pre-bundled on the windows installation cd-rom yet - MICROSOFT cannot pay anyone else for something. Wow years of litigation just so microsoft can try to avoid royalty fees. Linux time is coming closer and closer. It's all about trust, folks as we've seen on the today show - if you do anything wrong political opponents will never forget. Yet microsoft does 100 bad things a year (however, they do donate millions to charities and AIDS research), and its happy new windows XP users are completely complacent.

#12) Link 12 - About specific details in the ruling

#13) No link here but guess what
We hesitate to recommend a flat prohibition against wildcards in "registry"-class zones, but strongly suggest that the burden of proof in such cases should be on the registry to demonstrate that their intended use of wildcards will not pose a threat to stable operation of the DNS or predictable behavior for applications and users.

We recommend that any and all TLDs which use wildcards in a manner inconsistent with this guideline remove such wildcards at the earliest opportunity.

From Fragile: "Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger." - Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering, Nuremburg

What makes you more of a George Bush evildoer:

The USA's DMCA isn't simply a bad law. It represents a very nasty set of interests. They are attempting to restrict freedom and technology in order to protect existing megacorps and profits. They already killed DigitalAudioTape (DAT) technology with the stupid laws they pushed through.
