Ask Slashdot: What Can You Do About SOPA and PIPA?

SethThresher Re:Spread the word (1002 comments)

I'd link you guys to the Wikipedia article so you can read up on the subject but it looks like the site's down for some reason. I guess they didn't meet their fundraising goals or something. Quite a shame really.

Why is it that I have the feeling I'm not picturing this right when I imagine UAVs just flying overhead, shooting loaded syringes at priority targets?

Missouri Law Says Students, Teachers Can't Be Facebook Friends

SethThresher Strict enforcement (415 comments)

I wonder what they'll do for say, home schooled kids, or kids who happen to have parents of relatives who are teachers? I know that most kids aren't super thrilled about having to friend their parents, but will they make it actually illegal in those cases?

Microsoft Betting on Bing for Mobile Search

SethThresher Re:Whatever (204 comments)

Well Anonymous Coward, I apologize for not seeing your comment before answering a nearly identical one below yours, so let me just copy paste my response to theirs since it merits the same exact response:

I was going for just a general search of "TF2 wiki", my bad for implying the search was for the official one. Look up that one and see what I mean. Look, I'll even give you the url for that very search: http://www.google.com/search?q=tf2+wiki

As for the windows phone remarks, I say with confidence that I don't like either the iOS or Android interfaces, and the Metro interface is a very attractive design alternative to me. The UI is intuitive, and the keyboard works great with my enormous, manly hands. It does exactly what I want it to, with no extra crap and clutter. I waited until the full NoDo update to pick it up, so I didn't even have to "suffer" through the travesty of not having copy+paste. To me, a smartphone is a smartphone, they all do the same basic functions at this point. The only distinctions are the trappings, and my history with the two main schools of thought leave a bad taste in my mouth. Why should I care the masses want me to buy one phone over the other when I know exactly what I want?

In short, I love my phone, so deal with it.

Yeah the mobile side I think is strangely better than the desktop version. It's hard to put my finger on it, but it just seems to work better.

Microsoft Betting on Bing for Mobile Search

SethThresher Whatever (204 comments)

As far as I'm concerned, Bing works just fine on my WP7, is actually just slightly better at getting me relevant results that I've happened to want while I was on the road away from my desktop, and looks marvelous either way. I'm happy with it.

Incidentally, a search for the Team Fortress 2 official wiki on Bing brings you just that as its first result, whereas on Google you get an old, defunct fake version of the real thing, which I suspect stays at the #1 spot due to SEO abuse. Just throwing that out there.

Video Game Free Speech Ruling Aftermath

SethThresher Re:Wasting time (258 comments)

I'm sorry, but that's just not how it works. The Bible isn't just a single body of work, it's a collection of history and laws spread out across thousands of years, detailing God's word, etc. Things change over time. Prophecies are fulfilled, promises are met.

Look at it this way: when the God of the Universe himself comes down and says "Hey, all that stuff I told you before has been taken care of. now all I want you to do is to love Me and each other, and to spread the word." that tends to change one's outlook. The Old Testament, as it stands, is now a history book that we can learn from, not a body of law that we are to strictly follow. It still reflects the Word of God, and is thus still applicable for teaching and insight, but it's not like Christians are being told not to eat pork, or not leave their houses on the Sabbath, or go to war with the Canadians because that land was promised as an inheritance at some point in the past.

Love God, love everyone else too. That's what it boils down to.

Now let's go back to being mutually happy that we're allowed to play and buy video games where we shoot up aliens, okay? ;)

GameStop opening Deus Ex copies, stealing codes

SethThresher SethThresher writes  |  more than 3 years ago

SethThresher (1958152) writes "Square Enix pleasantly surprised everyone by including free download copies of Deus Ex: Human Revolution (for the Onlive service) inside retail copies of the game. However, a leaked memo has uncovered that GameStop employees have been instructed to open and remove and throw away each of the coupons they find inside. They claim that Square Enix put the codes there without their knowledge. Gamers claim, however, that what GameStop is doing is underhanded, and probably illegal."
