Fan-Developed Ultima VI Remake Released

charliemopps11 Re:Was anyone else waiting? (161 comments)

It was technically called Ultima X and it was scrapped. They used the 3d resources they had created in the latest revamp of Ultima Online. If someone sunk a massive amount of money into the project, it could possibly turn out ok. But more likely than not they'd try and make a WoW clone like everyone else and fail miserably.

Blizzard To Require Real First and Last Names For Official Forums

charliemopps11 well (833 comments)

Lets just get a few things strait: The only reason an MMO has a forum for its own game is so they can control the speech of those in the forum. This is just a further attempt at stifling the speech of those in the forum. If the WOW players were smart they'd flock to some other non-blizzard controlled forum. But its just to easy to use the official forums, and that's why it works.

Microsoft Spurned Researchers Release 0-Day

charliemopps11 lol (246 comments)

I wouldn't even notify Microsoft... I'd just release it and laugh a hearty pirate laugh. Microsoft should count themselves lucky I have no haxor skills and the people that do give them any notice in the first place.

The Unstoppable 'Tech Support' Scam

charliemopps11 subject goes here (312 comments)

I think this is a clear case in which Obama needs to use his new powers to shut down the internet until this is resolved!

Roger Ebert Backs Down On Video Games As Art

charliemopps11 Re:He Did No Such Thing (265 comments)

Why is Rodger Ebert a brilliant man? In fact, why is his opinion on videos even relevant? Maybe we should get his opinion on astronomy while we're at it?

Tesla IPO Raises $226 Million

charliemopps11 fail (274 comments)

Has anyone seen the episode of Top Gear in which they test drive this car? Basically all the claims by the company are BS. The charge lasted a fraction of the time claimed, the time it took to charge up the car was far longer than was claimed, and they ended up blowing the motor on it at some point. It was failure after failure and this was on a car that costs more than some Ferraris. Good luck Tesla investors.

Why Google, Bing, Yahoo Should Fear ACTA

charliemopps11 Let them eat cake!! (290 comments)

I imagine after large numbers of the population lose access to the internet people might revolt. Of course, 1% of us are in prison right now, mostly on drug crimes. So maybe we'll just sit by and let it happens. Who knows?

"Why would I want to pay for a second phone I don't need?" Oh I dunno... maybe so your employer couldn't read all your texts?

Yes it does. Unfortunately most people don't understand what the right to bare arms was intended for.

When Will the Automotive Internet Arrive?

charliemopps11 Re:Hopefully Never (261 comments)

I have a 30yr old jeep that meets emissions every year. It probably gets better gas millage than your car (and no I don't mean that bullshit sticker in the window, I mean your REAL gas millage.) The problem is people don't know how to do basic maintenance on their own cars anymore. The computer compensates for the fact the owner never changes their sparkplugs, oil, belts, air filter, etc... when the computer finally can't make enough adjustments to keep the car running it finally dies... the owner takes it in and OMG! It needs a new everything!! How could that have happened? It was fine last week! A well maintained hummer probably gets better gas millage than any 5+ year old prius with a bad owner.

Bill Gives Feds "Emergency" Powers To Secure Civilian Nets

charliemopps11 Re:Uncle Sam Knows Best (505 comments)

How many people would this agency employ? The manpower required to do this would be staggering. Unless they think they can just say "Give us up to date network maps!" at which point 99% of the ISPs out there would say "Network whatsits?"

Bill Gives Feds "Emergency" Powers To Secure Civilian Nets

charliemopps11 HA! (505 comments)

The one way to ensure our network would go down and never come back up would be to take a complete stranger and put them in control. Make that complete stranger someone that works for the government and I'd be surprised if it didn't just burst into flame on the spot.

Hands-On Demo Shows Asus E-Reader Tablet In Action

charliemopps11 yuck (108 comments)

it looks like a large palm3. $200, its not color, or eink, It's going to be tied to amazon? Come on. E-Readers need to either be CHEAPER or BETTER than books. Right now they are neither. So their only purpose at the moment is geek bling at the local starbucks. Call me when they're $25 and not tethered to amazon and they might be worth my interest.

Study Shows Standing Up To Bullies Is Good For You

charliemopps11 I always... (458 comments)

I always backed down / ran away from bullies as I thought that was the right thing to do. Got the crap beat out of me every day for 12 years because they knew I wouldn't hit back. Now that I have a 2yr old of my own, I'll be teaching him that if anyone punches him in the shoulder and laughs his response should be to punch them square in the face. I'll deal with the teachers when I get called in. If they can't control their class room my kid will defend himself.

University hid climate data

charliemopps11 charliemopps11 writes  |  more than 4 years ago

charliemopps11 (1606697) writes "The university at the centre of the climate change row over stolen e-mails broke the law by refusing to hand over its raw data for public scrutiny. The University of East Anglia breached the Freedom of Information Act by refusing to comply with requests for data concerning claims by its scientists that man-made emissions were causing global warming.
The Information Commissioner’s Office decided that UEA failed in its duties under the Act but said that it could not prosecute those involved because the complaint was made too late."
