Your dole system sounds basically like what NZ has, with the same problems. I guess I could live with education being subsidized, and I agree that welfare in general is a bad idea due to abuses.

Anyone wanna start a topic on the purpose of government? I haven't got time :(

Welfare is a good idea, but since the abuse is so widespread and easy , that it should really have been abandoned a long time ago in the United Kingdom. Only recently are people on the dole now being forced to do community service (picking up litter, painting benches, repairing shit)... And god knows, that many of them still try and get out of doing this service.

We have a thing called Job Seekers Allowance, which is basically the dole, applicable to anyone who can prove they are looking for a job. This is the fundamental flaw in the system since all you have to do is visit the office (agency that handles welfare) twice a month, and fill out a form saying that you looked for jobs here, there and applied for these two. Then, they give you your check and say 'better luck next month'. Seriously. It's a joke. But, for those who really need it - my brother, for example - works down in London as an artist. He lost his last job due to the financial crisis and cuts were being made across the art sector. And, well, it's pretty damn hard to find a job as good as his last one and he genuinely was trying to find something to work at. London living is expensive and he couldn't exactly afford to be without a job, so he signed on.

So for those who genuinely need Welfare it is a good thing. But the sad fact is that the majority of people do not need it and therefore abuse it.

Well that legislation was passed today. All the British kids are mad now.

Memes gather, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the memer on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of memes. I pledge my life and honor to the Meme's Watch, for this meme and all the memes to come.

What I'm interested in is whether the new tuition fees will affect all students (including current students) or only the ones who start their course after 2012.

Moose shouted: martosss IIRC, the plan was to go 64-bit only eventually so they're interested in differences between the versions
well I might have found 1 bug for them to fix - some maps load on 32 bit, but not on 64 bit game version

martosss shouted: jjf28 OK, I have 1 more question - are you using 32 bit SC:R or 64 bit ? In game settings there's an option to switch to 32, is it checked? I just tried hosting the map with 64-bit SC:R and it failed... I ticked the option to use 32 bit SC:R => it worked and map was hosted. So I guess the issue still exists for 64 bit SC:R ? I also tried calling a friend and he couldn't see the map when he entered the lobby. Weird, I might have to report this to Blizzard?
