Elite Looks Set To Make a Comeback

InspectorGadget Elite: Dangerous kickstarter is still open (113 comments)

So you can still jump on board if you want to.
There are (as of right now) 33 hours left to go.
And I wouldn't say squeaked through - people are still funding the project, and there is a healthy overshoot of the funding goal.

Floating Houses Designed For Low-Lying Countries

InspectorGadget Re:US gov't insurance (173 comments)

That doesn't seem to stop people in the UK building in flood plains. I think you'll find people will keep on building in risky areas, accept the financial hit in case of a flood, and keep an eye on extreme weather warnings.
After all, properties built in such areas will be cheaper as a result.
But then bricks & mortar houses don't tend to float away in floods.

Reaction To Diablo 3's Always-Online Requirement

InspectorGadget MMO confusion (591 comments)

I think Blizzard seem to be undecided about whether Diablo 3 is a single player game with multiplayer elements or an MMO that you can play single player. If they made the decision one way or the other, or released two versions, the outrage would never have come up.
