Witcher 2 Torrents Could Net You a Fine

bumby Re:Intended Reaction? (724 comments)

Perhaps it is a good thing that the game makers whos business model is based on a pre-digital/pre-internet era goes out of business. Obviously people doesn't value them very highly if they need to legislate their rights for sales.

Perhaps the problem lies in charging $50-$100 for a game full of artificial restrictions. I personaly haven't bought games in years, until i found who sells drm free games for $6 and $10 and no more (some they even give away for free). I've happily payed for a couple of games there, not so much to play the game as to support a company which I believe is doing a good thing - selling drm free games to a reasonable price.

If it's simple economics that if enough people get something for free, someone has to be hurt, then perhaps it is time to overlook the values of these economics.

How about myself? I would prioritize myself over data and posessions any time.

Scroogle Has Been Blocked

bumby Google Sharing (281 comments)

I've been using Google Sharing, , for a while now. Works very well. As with all proxies though, it just moves the point of trust from google to the google sharing-server.

So here we have spent huge amount of resources constructing advanced technology to send robots to mars to investigate if there's life there, only to have the evidence flown to us with a piece of rock.

bumby Re:cpm (1007 comments)

I'm actually doing something along that line as it is, using gpg and small shell script. I've still been waiting to try out cpm tough, since it has built in password generation, multiuser support and some other nice features :)

Is Windows 7 Faster Or Just Smarter?

bumby Re:Worse than that. (619 comments)

If you like complete control, and this is a OS X vs Windows argument, you should probably switch to a Linux system... If there's one thing I hate most about Windows it's the lack of control.
