Apparently, the people from Penny Arcade have sent a whole bunch of stuff to the Florida Bar Assoc. and have caused an investigation of Jack Thompson.. maybe he will end up disbarred?
It's been discussed multiple times here on the forum and, due to the recent increase, I'm making it clear that there is to be no garrysmod pictures that involve characters having sex with each other. EG, so called "garryporn".
"But you allow pictures of killing! sex is loving! whats...
Today I smashed a server.
I dropped it out a 5th floor window into an empty carpark. :D
Smashing computer/electrical equipment is great fun.. little bits of case/wires/diodes fly everywhere, and afterwards, you can go and kick the wreckage.
What computer/electrical stuff have YOU people...
Has anyone heard of, or tried a bit of "Urban Exploration"? Got any stories to share?
Basically, for those who dont know, it involves finding and then exploring places like steam tunnels, abandoned buildings/bunkers/factories etc as well as maintinance areas for large structures. (usually...
Yikes. Really makes you think about the kind of people who are out there.
I used to work in that industry and it makes me shiver reading about stuff like that.
I think its a crazy idea, but I'd still like to see it done.

Yes, currently, there is a steam outage that is affecting large numbers of people.
Its received a fair bit of attention and will be fixed ASAP by valve.
Apparently, one of the master servers is down, and all accounts tied to it will not work.
So be calm, and stop with all the panic-posting!
Some of you may have heard of The Political Compass before, and its a very interesting site that gauges your political stance, its pretty informative and interesting to read over too, and the results can be both enlightening and surprising (especially when you can end up compared to Hitler lol)...
ok, so is the US basically saying; "we dont have enough evidence to legally convict you of anything, so we'll lock you up forever instead"?
what happened to speedy trials and statutes of limitation?
I probably wont argue in this...
Would you join the armed forces of your country if it was engaged in a war/conflict?
A real war (i.e not like Iraq, think a developed country declares war)
If your country was invaded/under real threat of invasion?
In short, what would have to happen to make you join? or why would you not...
