Jeez... now what made you think it'd be a good idea to post that line of crap here...

You won't get an answer from the devs on this prior to the launch, and the only other people in the know (namely the Beta testing crowd) can't tell you because of the NDA. Still, if IV follow their usual pattern it should be playable from USB devices, so I'd say the chances are reasonable. -Stephen-

I think I read somewhere that it takes 60 seconds to switch mode on them sillos. And it has to take more than 60 secs for a nuke to go from Europe to America (as an example, them subs in your harbor is a different matter, but that's why you make sure to find them before they hit the button). Of cou...

I work until 17.30 BST, meaning I'll get home roughly 18.30 BST, which gives me half an hour to sort out food and such before I can get nuking :D

I guess so, but it'll make beating any of them that much sweeter ;)

Besides, we'll have a couple of hours to get to grips with things prior to the tournament starting...

I hate how so many people have just written off DEFCON on the basis of screenshots. For one thing, I personally love the retro cool WarGames look ;) and for another, since when did games become all about the technology used to implement them and not the gameplay. Idiots. I'll be trying my best to co...

I trust spectators and players not to go cheating, but having someone specifically there to write a live accoun...

VNC isn't THAT difficult to get around but there are unfortunately any number of other programs that do a similar thing (and some are a lot better). At work I use Netsupport for remote server and desktop administration, which is kinda neat, since I can fix almost any issues without leaving my desk. ...
