There's also a lot of unhappy punters in Europe and the UK who have planned they day off so that they can download Gran Turismo 5: Prologue. The Playstation Store update is overdue and today is release day for GT5:P.
The delay is probably because of the account issues. Not good.
Got my copy in the post this morning - it rocks!!
...remember that when slating 'BAA'. 'BAA' doesn't even stand for anything anymore. It used to be British Airports Authority.. but this is no longer used by BAA.
BAA is the noise sheep make. The sheep are the people being herded around the various retail outlets. The sheepdogs are the security personnel directing the sheep to the shops. The Sheppard is commercialism. The terrorist is the wolf in sheep's clothing... I could go on...
(We so need a sheep icon)
There's someone missing from this story - the biofather - the 'real' daddy.
I never met my biofather and the biggest problem I has when I was growing up was prejudice in others - not the fact that my 'real' daddy was not around or that I came from a single parent family.
All that really matters is that the kid is brought up in a loving environment. Some kids don't even have that.
Profit is the primary motivator for BAA shareholders and everything else is a hindrance to realise any such profit, including security.
T5 is a perfect example of how BAA misuses 'security' as means to increase footfall for the benefit of the retailers, of which BAA takes quite a large cut from every sale.
Dispatches on Channel Four discussed this not so long ago.
BAA is not even a British company - 85% of it (or there abouts) is owned by Ferrovial - a Spanish company.
My wife has a Compaq Presario C300 with Vista Premium. Installed SP1 and it failed after reboot. It rebooted again and now I get a BSOD everytime. I even get a BSOD by booting from the orginal Vista DVD - very odd.
She is now denying me any hot-love until I get it fixed. Looks like I'll be spending the bank holiday weekend locked away in my home office trying to get clean up this mess.
The reason why OSX is more stable is because the hardware it is installed on is very strictly controlled and tested. Vista, XP, et al have to deal with an almost infinite set of hardware configurations, third party drivers etc that it's hardly any wonder there are stability issues.
If OSX was available for the more 'general hardware population' then it would face the same problems, if not worse given the lack of drivers.
