  1. While we're waiting for that re-release, I figured I'd add some suggestions for stuff to do in the meantime.

    The most obvious one being... Archer! Seriously, if you like spies and haven't see it yet, do so immediately.

    Then there's Alpha Protocol. Not a very successful game, but seems to have become a bit of a cult favourite since.

    In anime there's Noir. Not very sixties, but twice the female superspies!

    And from the world of comics, I'd suggest Casanova. 60s-ish spyfy at its finest!


  2. with Sierra being defunct and Vendi Universal being absorbed by Acitvision.


    A minor correction there. Vivendi bought Activision, it still owns 52% of the new ActivisionBlizzard (the rest being traded on the stock market and owned by various parties). It was sold as a merger, though, for various PR related reasons, so no wonder there's confusion about that. It's now organised as a small management at the top supervising two big divisions, the Activision part and the Blizzard part. The Activision part consists of the former Activision plus all the non-Blizzard stuff that Vivendri brought in, which includes the former Sierra properties. So logically the NOLF rights should be somewhere in that part of the company unless someone sold it off/took it home without telling anyone.

    Apparently there were a few trademark rights that expired recently as well, probably as a result of the fact that no one knows who owns the thing so no use paying for trademarks either. Some more tiny tidbits of info came up in the comments at Rockpapershotgun.

  3. The part of the world where I used to live.

    The winds were usually west.

    But when they were east, they came from the Ruhr.

    The industrial heartland of Europe.


    I remember the taste of the rain.

    Tangy. Metallic. Acid.

    I wondered whether pine trees had seasons.

    Because they were all brown.


    Thank you regulators.

    Thank you sensible people.

    For making our brown forests green again.

  4. About time.


    Not that the world is gonna be a safer place now (like Obama said) cause theres always more ppl like Usama. Still good though....Hope he suffered a lot



    I think it will be, depending how you look at it. The actual Al-Qaeda organisation was pretty much destroyed already, and Bin Laden being dead is a big blow to Al-Qaeda the movement as well. Fatty mcUglyface Al-Zawahiri just isn't as charismatic as Bin Laden was. Then again, unless you're living in Iraq or Afghanistan, you're more likely to be hit by lightning than a terrorist attack anyway, so for most people it won't make much of a difference.

  5. For the American voters among us, the positions of the two candidates:



    McCain is against government regulation of network neutrality unless evidence of abuse exists[97]. He is quoted as saying "let's see how this thing all turns out, rather than anticipate a problem that so far has not arisen in any significant way." Until such a time, he supports allowing network owners to control what sites consumers view, saying, in May 2007, "When you control the pipe you should be able to get profit from your investment".[98][99] In 2002, McCain introduced the Consumer Broadband Deregulation Act of 2002, a deregulation measure aimed at preventing the government from requiring broadband providers to offer access to competing ISPs in the residential broadband market.[100][101]



    In a June 2006 podcast, Obama expressed support for telecommunications legislation to protect network neutrality on the Internet, saying: "It is because the Internet is a neutral platform that I can put out this podcast and transmit it over the Internet without having to go through any corporate media middleman. I can say what I want without censorship or without having to pay a special charge. But the big telephone and cable companies want to change the Internet as we know it."[24] Obama reaffirmed his commitment to net neutrality at a meeting with Google employees in November 2007, at which he said, "once providers start to privilege some applications or web sites over others, then the smaller voices get squeezed out, and we all lose."[25] At the same event, Obama pledged to appoint a Chief Technology Officer to oversee the U.S. government's management of IT resources and promote wider access to government information and decision making.[26]
  6. You can do them now as well. They're reproducible - it's science! I remember a similar thing being done with clothes: people in business suits having lying on the ground injured are helped sooner than people in rags. The same with football shirts: if you need help in Manchester, don't wear a Chelsea shirt...
