    Really you should have just sprung for those surgically implanted sunglasses, pretty hard to misplace those.

    I'm actually kind of curious about this. Was there anything particular about the game play or story that turned you off of Deus Ex or did it just not appeal to you on some deep level?

    Eh, I felt like Deus Ex HR had good parts but overall was boring and was a stuggle to get through.

    In addition to pushing for legislation to force isp providers to more aggressively block copyright violations, they are also trying to get legislation that would allow them to delist the DNS record of any site they deem an offender, effectively erasing the site from existence and breaking the way the Internet currently functions.

    There is literally no way that would happen

    That would be giving the MPAA the right to force private hosting corporations to alter their data at the expense of their customers

    No way that legislation passes

    The legal argument is that DNS is just a directory like a link in a search, which it basically is, and that they can already do the same thing for YouTube videos and sites showing up in searches in that arena. YouTube will take a video down at the hint of a copyright complaint, and their argument is this is no different

    I could pass, but you would just end up with nobody using the "official" DNS anymore.

    Well they'll have a hard time doing it now.

    Not that they'll give up. If they drop Goliath, they'll try another tack before long.

    Right, but that's going to be the route for like a minimal section of users who are savvy enough for that

    Youtube taking down videos isn't a legal requirement (it's not a requirement by law). But it does help prevent youtube getting into legal trouble (they could get sued). As far as I remember anyway, I could be wrong.

    Look up some of the batshit insane stuff the MPAA tried to pull when VHS hit the market

    They're always a) behind the times b) overzealous c) overlitigious and d) wildly ineffective at halting the progress of technology

    Working on Christmas ain't so bad

    Double pay, everyone's super nice to you out of pity, and business tends to be slow and easy

    It's not ideal, but it's hardly awful

    That's true, but the current ability of cable companies to effect legal changes to the Internet is not heartening.

    Vhs tapes are easy to understand. Most legislators don't even know how the Internet, at a basic level, works.
