A Playable PAC-MAN On Google Doodle

celibate for life Re:How is this impressive in any way? (286 comments)

I'm a serious collector of Pac-Man memorabilia (I once paid over $100 for a box of Pac-Man cereal and my wedding next month will be Pac-Man themed.)

Even as a married man, you'll always be a virgin.

Do Children's E-Books Ruin Reading?

celibate for life Seriously (149 comments)

I don't know why or how this trend started: to consider human beings (specially children) so delicate and fragile that every minor thing has the potential to ruin someone's mind forever. Traditional reading won't get outdated because it's a very efficient way to get high amounts of information in non-sequential order. So even if your children like to play with animated bleep-bloop books, they will eventually learn to read real books because they will need to. Necessity has been helping individuals and the entire species accomplish things since the dawn of time.

"Necessary" is a concept that varies according to each person. To me, my 47 porn DVDs are the necessary amount.

Fake Antivirus Peddlers Outpacing Real AV Firms

Fake Antivirus Peddlers Outpacing Real AV Firms

celibate for life Re:Why use an unknown AV program? (245 comments)

I was once infected at my work computer, which runs Windows XP SP3, while visiting the website of a private porn torrent tracker, with lots of ads. I did not click any links or solicited the installation of the program, but somehow some sort of "Antispyware 2010" appeared there. It must have been a browser exploit or something like that. It wasn't too difficult to get rid of, I just needed Malwarebytes antimalware (the free version). Anyway, now I turn off Flash and JS before browsing porn at work.

Ubisoft's DRM Cracked — For Real This Time

celibate for life Re:I wish people would act more ethically (443 comments)

Reading comprehension is a very useful skill.

So is common sense.
Do you actually think that half a dozen angry letters/e-mails will make any difference? That is, if they read them in the first place.
In the real world, most people will either pay and put up with the DRM, pirate it, or not play and don't care at all. The company is trying to make a profit and the customers are trying to have fun. That's all there is to it.

Ubisoft's DRM Cracked — For Real This Time

celibate for life Re:I wish people would act more ethically (443 comments)

You make the incorrect assumption that torrents are the only form of distribution of "warez". All they can tell from looking at torrent statistics is "yes, some people are downloading our game illegally", which is pretty obvious to begin with, it's a popular game we're talking about. There will be a lot of downloads, even if the crack isn't fully functional, even if it's functional but too complicated; people will download then delete it without playing it.

The point is: if you really want to play that game without paying for it and you really want it to remain secret, there are plenty of ways to obtain it anonymously, and your actions won't be sending Ubisoft any messages, they will just make their own conclusions.
