Vacuum Leaks Lead To Another LHC Delay

wigginz LHC may never activate? (224 comments)

I really wish I could find this article again, but I remember reading a paper from a couple physicists that offered the possibility that the LHC wont let itself activate because of the risks to spacetime or some other quantum effects. They mentioned previous experiments that posed the same risks have never actually been successful. Damn, anyone know the report I'm talking about? I swear I'm not making it up ;)

Why Game Developers Should Shut Up About Used Games

wigginz Re:They can stop it: Installs locked to hardware. (590 comments)

It never will. Publishers have too much invested and make too much money (along with retailers) selling games off the shelf. It will never go away or let digital distribution take over. Steam has been around how long? It hasn't made much of a dent especially when the console market is so huge.
