I am uploading and downloading there right now, because I have Vuze running. It is glorious to be one of the few that upload! And you just dare to disincentive me by reducing my ad-venture...ad-venure...uh, whatever thing that was!

The Grown-Up Video Game

porttikivi Re:Time pressure and expected content (152 comments)

I am 46 and the only games I play are New Super Mario Bros. and Mario Kart. I think it remains to be proven, that a computer game really needs a story beyond what Mario games have. It's all about flickering lights, controls, playability, rhytm, learning curve, balanced challenge... Just like sports is, except this is mental and finger candy, not physical! I want stories? I read books or go to movies!

UK ISPs Near Agreement On Illegal File Sharing

porttikivi Feargal, sorry that I donwloaded "Teenage Kicks".. (97 comments)

Dear Feargal,

I think "Teenage Kicks" by your band The Undertone is one of the best pop songs ever. I confess I have downloaded the best of The Undertones illegally. I also tried very hard to like your solo work (True, O'Neill brothers later stuff has also vanished from my playing lists).

I am a fan of yours, but I am going to download your stuff illegally and, mark my words: there is nothing you can do about it.
