Space Commanders rebel as Elite:Dangerous kills offline mode

the original was single player

we did not seem to have any issues playing it then, in fact if so many had not enjoyed the original game in its single player only format then they would not have had such a fantastic response of people backing the project.

I was looking forward to this, not going to bother now because I do not have internet access except via my phone

when I was a nipper...

the local library had several science fiction anthonlogies and in one story, if i remember correctly it was called Bilbo's Star, people could make their own star rather like building a airfix model, only Bilbo's star was not quite right, more of a rugby ball shape and the more he "fed" his star to try and make it look the right shape the worse it got until one day it collapsed on itself and started to devour everything. Articles like this always remind me of that story. No real point, just thought i would share.

hang on...

the last goverment told us we could not have "extreme pornography" whilst actually leaving the definition of extreme a little vague for the courts, and now the new lot are saying that all porn should go because children could access it? And i guess if you wanted to be able to look at pornography you would have to register yourself as an opt-out and therefore be flagged immediately by the powers that be as some sort of wrong un.

I have posted it many times before and I shall continue to do so as long as I keep reading things like this...

"My final point about alcohol, about drugs, about pornography...What business is it of your's what I do, read, buy, see or take into my body as long as I don't harm another human being whilst on this planet?

And for those of you having a little moral dilemma on how to answer this, I'll answer for you:

UK.gov plans net surveillance by 2015

Once upon a time it was drugs we were to fear...

then it became terrorism/religious extremism and now they want to gear the public up to be fearful of cyber-terrorism, most likely with the usual government view of "its only your liberty we are taking and it is for your own good, how else shall we keep you safe from those evil cyber-terrorists, now be good and go back to watching X Factor, hey we might even mention it in parliament to show how in touch we are with our slaves, sorry serfs, sorry citizens"

Will we see adverts on the underground in a similar vein to the "multiple mobile phones, must be a terrorist" only revised to "They have more than one PC, maybe even a laptop as well, can you trust this person? they might be a cyber-terrorist! So shop them now, don't worry if we cannot get them for terrorism then we might be able to squeak something through with the extreme porn laws and hey presto!"

or am I just being too cynical of government (again)?

Dixons risks future of humanity with Star Wars-themed ads

Gusty O'Windflap

these are not the electrical goods stores you are looking for

It does seem odd that they should choose star wars characters, or maybe the marketing people thought "ah the people who grew up on star wars will have their houses and white goods but perhaps the washing machine is getting old and they need a replacement about now"

It worked for Citreon and the C4, all those Transformers fans now at an age where they are earning with a family on the way etc.

EU sues UK.gov over Phorm trials

Paris Hilton

just reading through the responses...

and not being one who understands the law or politics to any great depth, I wondered if the UK Government is fined by the EU for this, can the UK Gov then turn around and start legal proceedings against BT and Phorm and then fine them?
