In Isk We Trust: the EVE Online IskBank Exposed

catd77 Re:Wrong title (145 comments)

I tried it and it was a little bit too in depth. It took weeks just to be able to "really play". It's probably really fun for veteran players though.

Facebook Billionaire Gives Money To Legalize Marijuana

catd77 Re:WTF? (527 comments)

But, it may help the economy by giving the government a cut of the money from the drugs. That is good and will also discourage people from doing them because there will be no taboo to "be cool".

Bethesda Unveils New Co-op Dungeon Crawler

catd77 Re:Oooh, shiny! (218 comments)

Borderlands was a 4 player co-op FPS, not a 3rd person co-op game. Anyways, I'm excited too, I enjoyed Oblivion and can't wait to see what Bethesda can do to this tired genre.

Another Study Attacks Violent Video Games, Claims To Be "Conclusive"

catd77 Re:As always... (587 comments)

Exactly. I never associate violence in a game to real life. Why not ban R Rated Movies or PG-13 movies. Most PG-13 movies are worse then M-rated games. in my opinion.

What Has Your Phone Survived?

catd77 Re:A full season in the snow (422 comments)

Wow, my phones just break on me for no reason. I keep mine in a case with screen protectors on ecery screen. I've already had to replace it once because it wouldn't shut off. My phone before that I took amazing care of and it stopped making calls after a year. All my phones hate me!

Windows 7 update will target piracy

catd77 catd77 writes  |  more than 4 years ago

catd77 (1743104) writes "To combat Windows 7 piracy Microsoft will release an update in the coming weeks. The update will be called "Windows Activation Technologies Update for Windows 7", and it will find known signs of "potentially dangerous activation exploits". But, apparently all your "important data" will be safe from prying eyes, and will be saved even if you have a pirated copy of Windows 7. A notification will appear to alert you of how you can fix it. So update wisely pirates."
