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!
So I was playing a multiplayer online video game, and I was having connection issues. At the end of the game, I mentioned my modem was having problems, and one of my opponents (in as dickish a way as possible, of course) claimed that no one uses modems anymore. When I asked if he used magic to connect to the internet, he said that he uses a LAN card with "cable, adsl" and that LAN cards use "LAN cable" as opposed to telephone cable.
Well, I've never heard of any sort of personal internet service that isn't connected at some point through a modem. Is it possible he's assuming I meant dial-up?
