The international Muslim Matrimonials site?  Really? 

Not that I have an issue with the religion aspect, but do we really need ads for a mail-order bride service?

Is this real box art?  sweet.

I notice the RP rating, so I can assure you in the strictest sense that it's not.  In a less nit-picky vein, I also notice the lack of the Harmonix logo on the Wii boxes.

I agree.  I somehow wound up with a copy of the TPB for Death of Superman.  It was a complete deus ex machina moment with no prelude, no back story and was handled badly. 
7417  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Pirates Seize Ship Crewed by Americans on: April 15, 2009, 05:36:01 PM

7419  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / GameStop puts the screws to overworked Demigod developers on: April 15, 2009, 03:32:31 AM
GameStop broke the street date, which lead to even more overtime for Demigod developers as they had to get all the MP servers up and running.

And for the conspiracy theorist...

Quote
But it's the fact that Demigod is being heavily pushed as a digital download that's got people speculating that GameStop purposely botched the launch date in defiance of Stardock's digital distribution platform, Impulse. Either way, the slip-up forced the game's support team to configure the multiplayer servers for the unexpected amount of early players over the weekend, right after "a good solid eight weeks of massive crunch."
7420  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Gamestop Article on: April 15, 2009, 03:28:43 AM
If someone want to rob a Gamestop, they are going to rob a GameStop.  Shoplifting, on the other hand, is probably lower this way.

And adding display artwork is going to cost money that they would then have to recoup elsewhere.

Lemme help.  To avoid issues with hotlinking, I have started using imageshack, which will allow you to "upload" a file direct from a URL.  It's all in the radio buttons.  Same caveat applies, no viewing the properties.

I can't even look at the picture...

Quoting your post on the other hand, ruined the whole thing.

Can't say that I've been in a similar situation, but if the path to what you want to do seems doable, then I'd say do it.  No job will ever be all gumdrops and roses, but you can certainly improve things if you're not happy.  While the future is not guaranteed, it's a whole lot better to have things to look forward to than always look back on opportunities lost.

Apologies if this has been mentioned before.

Courtesy of this C|Net article comes news of 763 free songs (article says 770, only 763 on the sort list).

I'm not quite sure how you can avoid a political discussion when the reason for the shortages is at least partially political.
Isn't is more paranoia than political?
What makes you think there's a difference in this case?

Wiki has you covered.  From the tags on some of the photos, it appears that there is post processing that can be done to create the effect instead.

Looking at some of the photos, however, I find it difficult to tell that anything has been done.

I liked it. Better than 95% of network sitcoms. Not laugh out loud funny, but enjoyable.

I disagree.  I find CBS has the best comedies at the moment, what with their entire Monday line-up and Gary Unmarried.  Although, I would watch P&R before I would ever watch Worst Week again.

Two other Somalis, one involved in the negotiations and another in contact with the pirates, also said the talks collapsed because of the U.S. insistence that the pirates be arrested and brought to justice.
This must be a foreign concept to people in Somalia.
Picture Depression-era U.S. with the whole bank robber things.  At that time, they were idolized and seen as modern versions of Robin Hood.  I can certainly see that these pirates, brining millions of dollars into the local economy, are not in the least looked down upon by the majority of the citizens of Somalia and they would be unwilling to turn them over to any sort of law enforcement.

Maybe we should fight money with money and offer to pay the equivalent or more of these ransoms to people who will turn them over to the authorities.  The trick is, there really aren't any authorities in Somalia at the moment anyway...

The situation in Somalia would be very different if not for the complete policy shift by Clinton after the Battle of Mogadishu
