We live in a society.

It's good, but I have to say that Maddox has a point on this one that there's still a lot of work for the American public to do.

I don't quite get why you put up that link. He seems to abhor the whole 'raising awareness' thing, or at least think it is ineffective; yet you are doing exactly that in your signature?

Not that I agree with him though, I think raising awareness is very effective, but maybe only as a first step. SEN should probably put something on their front page. :)

I think that's just preaching to the choir. You'd be hard-pressed to find someone here that hasn't heard of SOPA/PIPA.

My signature was made a couple of days ago, whereas I only stumbled on to Maddox's site yesterday. I will be changing my signature, though.

Personally, I think raising awareness isn't harmful. The point of his that I'm agreeing with is that it isn't enough. Going beyond that to actually writing your Congresspeople, signing petitions, etc., is much bigger than "becoming aware". Going beyond those steps to actually protest, boycot of companies, and inconvenience yourself to fight for a cause is even bigger.

Yer it's true. I was going to send an email... then found out you could only call them. And at that point I was like: "meh, fuck it". :bleh:

SOPA wiped as well.



None.

Herp a derp. It's not over.

Still Napping

It never is. America is just declaring a war on the internet. Because that's the only thing we know how to do.



None.

SDE, BWAPI owner, hacker.

Just to see what would happen.

I would make illegal copies of the bullets and sell them for profit.

m.0.n.3.y -- Can anyone help me get SCMDraft 2 running? Getting "Fatal Error: Failed loading primary MPQ (stardat.mpq)"
[06:25 pm]
Roy -- I think it used to say "I'm feeling lucky" and it would pull up a random file when clicked, but it broke at some point, so I changed the text and made it display a message instead.

NudeRaider -- oh funny, hadn't noticed that before :w00t:
[2024-3-03. : 7:28 pm]
UndeadStar -- NudeRaider
NudeRaider shouted: UndeadStar what are these? Never heard of both of them.
In "Starcraft I Files", there's a "I'm feeling lazy" link. And in Starcraft 2, when playing coop missions with Alarak, there's a jewel that can be turned on/off (eventually annoying Alarak).

NudeRaider -- UndeadStar
UndeadStar shouted: I just discovered the "I'm feeling lazy" button. Just as addicting as the Alarak interface thing in SC2.

Oh_Man shouted: i wonder how they did grand moff tarkins voice in star wars
Got someone to do a decent impersonation and then used professional audio engineers to make it sound like the original actor
[2024-3-01. : 8:11 pm]
IlyaSnopchenko -- Sure doesn't sound perfect... nothing is. I know it's better than my own attempts at voiceacting (but I'll have to resort to that, too; I've just been putting that off for ages).
