Pentagon Says Cyberattacks Can Count As Act of War

dq5 studios Re:Call me... (282 comments)

Why does a critical system have unsecured USB ports? Fixing that seems more important than clarifying you'll bomb people over it.

Firefox Lorentz Keeps Plugin Crashes Under Control

dq5 studios Re:No restart on plugin installtion/update? (115 comments)

No, restart-less extension installing and updating is a separate feature that's also in the works. I don't recall if they have a set release for that yet or not.

Google Chrome Extensions Are Now Available

dq5 studios Re:No (291 comments)

No. For a lot of us, that's like asking, "Does the ability to run JavaScript put Chrome at risk of becoming bloated?"

I don't know, judging from some NoScript fans, they certainly think so.

dq5 studios Re:Or 120GB for $54.99 (435 comments)

Video Games, the First Amendment, and Obscenity

dq5 studios Re:Obscene (229 comments)

I've always found it kind of amusing that it's basically all about sex and pooping. Of all the forms of speech that can be censored due to being offensive, of all the activities which we can't tolerate because they're too objectionable, we've picked out sex and pooping.

We hate the Germans _that_ much.

ABC/Disney Considering Hulu

dq5 studios Re:The problem... (192 comments)

dq5 studios Re:I help... (216 comments)

I use a rock to keep away MediaSentry. It uses less resources than PeerGuardian and is just as effective.

Lori Drew Trial Results In 3 Misdemeanor Convictions

dq5 studios Re:Somewhat fitting. (568 comments)

What I want to know is why Lori Drew started the whole thing in the first place.

Because her friend (who the prosecution gave immunity) suggested it as a way to get revenge for the victim calling Drew's daughter a lesbian.
