Comment Those were the days... (Score 1) 263

I was in high school at the time and did all my essays on the C64. Boy did it make things so much easier than using a typewriter (or pen and paper for that matter!). The only problem was that you couldn't type more than about 10 pages at a time before it ran out of memory. Most of my assignments ended up being done in parts...

Not only that:

- If you wanted to play any of the games online, you had to have a PSN account. Which meant you had to provide a credit card whether you were ever going to buy anything or not.

NOT TRUE. You can create PS3 accounts without having to provide any cc info. I have done so many times for the GT5 birthday/gift car cheat.

Comment AVG (Score 2) 199

This sets a new bar for incompetence. Its almost comical that they are admitting that someone didn't divide by 10 to get an average, but instead *added* the numbers together. This smells like its too dumb to be true, and they are hiding something.

Comment Groundbreaking? (Score 1) 176

I don't see how this breaks any new ground. Ferran Adria has had all his work documented in his El Bulli volumes since the 80's and he is widely recognized as being the most influencial chef of the last decade, if not of all time. Even Heston Blumenthal is a prior advocate of using science in cooking, with his "Kitchen Kemistry" TV series. I'm sorry but Nathan Myhrvold is a barbecue champion, and is a nobody in the gastronomic world. This project smells of something an American would do -- that is, "bigger". I don't see how anyone can just make a recipe book without having the recipes stand the test of a public trial (that is, served in a real restaurant at the mercy of real critics).
