Valve Trademarks 'DOTA'

Cristofori42 Re:dota (141 comments)

I bought WC3 for the sole purpose of playing dota which I played at a LAN party a few times. I know quite a few people who have also done this - this leads me to suspect that the makers of dota have generated a nice bit of profit for Blizzard.

You could have totally made that up and I doubt many people would even know. Including me.

Conficker Worm Strike Reports Start Rolling In

Cristofori42 Re:The damndest thing with these stories today (508 comments)

Yeah but since a large percentage of the community (let's go with 84.3%) doesn't R the FA then most of us will never know. But of course since there are so many informative people like you who post the stuff we care about then I guess it's a moot point.

Clear Public Satellite Imagery Tantamount to Yelling Fire

Cristofori42 Re:the real WTF? (230 comments)

I think he meant 'Fire' as in the kind that's preceeded by the words 'Ready' and 'Aim'. I think.

Tabula Rasa To Shut Down

Cristofori42 Re:MMO = fun? (244 comments)

So what you're saying is that you don't like PvP, so you didn't very much like a PvP-oriented game. I'm shocked.

That being said, I love PvP and I love Warhammer, I find that playing that same piece of content repetitively DOES get boring if you're playing against the computer (which is why I got bored of WoW). But throw in a human element and suddenly it's an entirely different experience every time you play a scenario or take/defend a keep, even if it's the same one. And by the way I love Mourkain's Temple.

Obama Launches Change.gov

Cristofori42 Re:"Propaganda" (1486 comments)

The youtube video was interesting, and if what he states in there is still accurate then it's not quite "mandatory", but it still feels rather intrusive to me to make government funding for schools contingent on developing service programs (if I understood that correctly).

The $4000 tax credit for college students that do 100 hours of service didn't seem all that unreasonable to me.

(Useful) Stupid Vim Tricks?

Cristofori42 Re:Need a way to un-highlight (702 comments)

while :noh is the "correct" way to do it, I find it a lot faster personally to type "/asfe". I suppose the best solution would be to just map it to an F key or something.

Barack Obama Wins US Presidency

Cristofori42 Re:Two words (3709 comments)

I don't understand your logic. You seem to be claiming that the fact that they have a bias (which everyone does to at least some degree) they are suddenly excluded from ever having a valid point or opinion.

Your argument that they are more of an opinion network than a news network seems unrelated to me.

This whole idea that people who don't share your same political view points are all idiots, liars and baby eaters is what has really turned me (and I suspect a lot of other people) off from trying to have reasonable political discussions with people.

When Digital TV broadcasts kick in in earnest ...

Cristofori42 Re:Insensitive? Or too sensitive? (352 comments)

I just go directly to the website of the station that broadcasts the show and they stream everything for free. You have to watch like one 15 second commercial during the commercial breaks, but you don't have to wait for you torrent to download or anything. PLUS I don't have Lars Ulrich looking over my shoulder and telling me what a bad person I am.
