This is what happens when someone takes the concept of an Ice Cream Truck too literally.

Marriages Spawned From Online Dating As Satisfying As From Traditional Dating

Noah69 Why stop there? (313 comments)

I actually went one step further and had an online wedding. It went surprisingly well until it became obvious that my future wife couldn't hold a positive K/D and was called a n00b faggot by the pastor. Worst day of my life, I even spent like five bucks on a custom suit character skin.

US Air Force Scraps ERP Project After $1 Billion Spent

Noah69 Cheaper alternative (362 comments)

That's silly.

You can get a copy of WoW for like 20 bucks and find plenty of ERP in Goldshire.

Valve Switching Team Fortress 2 To Free-To-Play Increased Revenue Twelvefold

Noah69 Not surprising (196 comments)

I only started playing TF2 once it became f2p, to see what it was all about. The fact that you only had to spend like 5 bucks in the store to upgrade your account to premium status was tempting and no hard decision once I discovered after a few sessions that the game was really fun. I got to try out the game for free and saw it more as a way to support the developers of a game that I enjoy rather than spending money on useless virtual items that I couldn't care less about. Good job Valve.

Corporate Claims On Public Domain YouTube Videos

Noah69 Re:This just in: DMCA is unfair and ContentID suck (320 comments)

Seriously, fuck GEMA.
Their practices are harmful to themselves, the artists they claim to represent and the users. While other, similar organizations may have been late to the whole internet thing and still don't get it GEMA acts like it doesn't even exist as a media platform or something.
Again, fuck GEMA.

Why Teach Programming With BASIC?

Noah69 BASIC is not the problem (709 comments)

Like for so many others, BASIC was what got me into programming when I was young. It was easy to open up a game I just played, change a line and - whoah - it actually showed the change right the next time I started the program, even if it was just replacing a word or a variable to give me two extra lives.
The sheer ease of creating something myself without spending hours reading a wiki or creating a dozen "Hello World" applications was what fascinated me.

Does BASIC teach you things that are no longer used in modern programming? Absolutely. But any reasonably smart person should have no problem adapting and understanding that when moving on to another language, it does not corrupt your ability to work in other environments.

Israeli Knesset Approves Biometric Database Law

Noah69 Uh-huh... (303 comments)

"I hope the fear of change and progress will not deter MKs from supporting the bill," Sheetrit said before the vote. I know panic has been stirred by those wishing to frighten the public."

Like, say, the Israeli government?

I just don't see the point of this. They will probably pass this off as something that helps against those evil terrorists, as always. I'm sure those rockets won't dare entering Israel as long as they don't have a biometric passport, right? And the hordes of suicide bombers will just turn around after jumping over the 8m wall, realizing they are not yet registered in the database.

(I'm aware that terrorism is indeed a problem in Israel, but things like these are simply not appropriate)

New Review Compares MythTV to Vista MCE

Noah69 Nice review, but... (234 comments)

I still don't see a reason for switching to Vista. Maybe if you're into that kind of things, but having Windows XP for my special needs and Ubuntu for the basic stuff seems to get the job done for me without spending money.
