I figured out Friedrich Nietzsche today what a drag man

You try writing philosophy with syphilis.

Haha!  I am not a data cluster, I am an INDIVIDUAL.  In your face, corporate conglomerates as imagined by Ubisoft but probably based on a great deal of facts.

I guess it's a european thing?

Hehehe.

So I went to the page and the first thing I see is the noscript block.

Then I have to pause ghostery

Then I have to allow facebook

and then I still get:

We could not log you in: You can't log in to this app because you do not meet this app's requirements for country, age or other criteria.

Because I've never put in my age, education or location.

Edit: not that that should in any way make me feel more secure.

I am in total agreement with this, by the way, and I plan to begin free shitting.

I have horrible haemorrhoids so I can do both at the same time.

Why would they pay you when you manage the site for free?
Your Right, I should put up a pay wall for all known government IP's

Your theory is sound but falls apart on one minor detail.

I'm not receiving any kickbacks. If I was selling you all down the river I would expect to be paid for it.

What was the problem with the AI system in Daemon/Freedom?

~~semi spoiler~~







I feel the biggest point was that the AI system took direct feedback from the USERS of the system. Which is technically how 'representatives' are supposed to work anyway, this system would just make that idea actually more viable as human decision makers (usually with degrees in economics, political science, or law) do not really have the skills required for making instant/intelligent decisions regarding feedback from the environment.

Maybe not as over-the-top as in Suarez's books (it was a fiction and a thriller after-all) but AI systems seem like one of the few things that can actually make society work on a large scale.

Why have I got this horrible feeling that someone has basically ripped and expanded on the "Helios" ending from Deus Ex?
And the matrix etc.

For an otherwise broken game, invisible war had a great Helios ending: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EF4Y-sxyBiE&t=0m5s

I told you guys what happens if you don't nail 20C into it's fucking casket.  I told you.

This is the 21C, like 20C but more shitty and we call it a "Reboot"

They won't fucking let up, will they?

Religious fanatics typically don't.

There's a really nasty provision in there.

Section 308? Edit: No I think I misread that.

Is Roger finally going to be joining the Kult of Macintosh?

Damn skippy.  I am never, ever again buying ANYTHING made by HP or Microsoft.

I am typing this on an 8-year-old Mac Mini that cost $500 and still basically does what I need it to do, despite the fact that the hardware is so old I can't upgrade any of the software.

I bought a brand-new touch-screen notebook, thinking it would be great, but Windows 8 so I almost never use it, unless I'm backed into some kind of corner. It's slow and horrible and difficult to use.

Yeah, I'm thinking a Mac.

What are you using the machine for? You may regret moving to the mac if you've never used one routinely before. A mac is fine for home browsing but you play the occasional game don't you? I've been using a mac for home use for the last decade but when this laptop dies I'll be moving back to windows or linux.

Windows 8 is a no go but windows 7 is still an excellent OS

I play Civ V, but honestly, I could live without it (and have more time).  If I can look at PDFs and use a word processor and the interbutts, I have what I need.

Then you should be ok. Word for mac isn't the nicest. It's own alternative Pages is better but if all you are looking for is writing text and not worrying too much about formatting etc then pretty much anything will do.
