top Crytek Ports CRYENGINE To Linux Support Ahead of Steam Machines Launch
Certain Steam games have followed me from Windows, to OS X and now Linux. This is a significant extra value and very convenient and I really hope that Valve manages to get a significant portion of the gamer crowd to switch. For me it's simple, if the game does not run in linux, I won't play it. Wine and emulators like DosBox are thankfully available to play some #oldwarez and the occasional game of SCII.

Does anyone know, is there a Kickstarter like service that provides you a percentile return on your investment depending on the success of the project, instead of just a t-shirt? If there is not I might have to start such a service of course using Kickstarter to source funds.

top Google Drive Launching Next Week With 5GB Free Space
Whatever the reason for the 50Mb limit, especially pirates know how to use split RARs. With that kind of limit, you can't share high res PSDs, 3D renderings or anything else where a 25Gb online storage space actually makes sense. And actually, it sounds perfect for sharing music, even FLAC are less than 50Mb per track.

There is a german IT news site called heise.de which appeals to a similar mindset as
/. Over there every can moderate and the "wrongthought" moderation is even worse to the point if that I do not pay attention to moderation any more nor do I actively moderate. This is just an example, but I am skeptical of opening up moderation to everyone. As an anecdote, for a while I was up-moderating posts which were punished for going against the /. groupthink. Suddenly I stopped getting any mod points for months, after having received them on a continuous basis. Gradually I am getting mod points again now. Maybe it was coincidental, but it is possibly part of the moderation system. If that is the case, that is where I would start making adjustments.

top Should There Be a Sci-Fi Category At the Oscars?
Books primarily targeted at women in general seems to get top shelf-space. This is not some sort of conspiracy though, the self-help addicted female crowd are probably the best customers, so you have to cater to them. Just be happy your book store even still carries sci-fi. So really the fault is not in the book store, it is the fact that males in general seem to read a lot less these days.

I think in relation to viruses, the better term is to "disable" a virus rather than to "kill" it since it is not all clear that a virus is actually a living thing. This is a point that seems still to be in discussion.

Not even that, it's some random guy that has absolutely no connection to the issue whatsoever. You are basically sending mail to whatever random email address (usually form a spammers address list itself) is in the from field which is about the easiest thing to forge. If anything, a bounce should go to the sending MTA which will handle these things gracefully. I have enjoyed backscatter and it is no fun.
