Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Of course, I'm in the UK, so what the FBI does isn't much of a concern of mine, but knowing that this technology exists in such a widely used piece of communications equipment, especially if it's not something I was notified about at point of purchase, worries me greatly. I'm willing to bet that it's closely guarded, considering we're only just hearing about it now, and usage of such a system would be closely monitored in itself; cellphones are used by everyone from schoolkids to politicians nowadays, after all, and being be to listen in on confidential conversations just because one person forgot to pull the battery out of their Nokia would present a huge security risk, but at the same time, this just feels Orwellian in nature.
Don't ever try to sit down on the toilet in the morning.
Not even after reading my post and thinking "hey, I'll give it a go".
It might work fine the first time. it may even work fine the second, or third, or subsequent times.
But eventually, while holding your morning glory down with your hand, you will slip and piss on your own face.
AND IT IS NOT NICE.
