There was the FIFA World Cup in South Korea and Japan in 2002 though. ;) I support Brazil because I don't think any tournament of such size has taken place in South America since I was born. Brazil is getting the FIFA WC after South Africa, in 2014, so it's really a surprise that they're getting bo...

The press here have just run with it, although it's not helping that they scream SWINE FLU!!! when someone sneezes once. That and loads of people taking a week off to enjoy the hot weather since the official government advice changed to 'just stay at home if you think you may have it'. I find that n...

It's not that bad, it's just a depressing place. The Heathrow of rail stations. Birmingham itself, around the station with all the flyovers, concrete and wide roads looks a little LA 2012, Blade Runner-esque. If Blade Runner had been designed by brutalist concrete fetishists who hate people... Fixe...

Re: Crime & Punishment

Protection- That most people know right from wrong, and that most criminals choose to violate law and disrupt social order, and so the goal should be to protect those willing to live according to law from those who are a danger to them. You could argue that the opposite is true - for instance one o...

This is taking a little longer than we all thought. Do you think we'll be done by christmas? Maybe a worldwide forum isn't the ideal place to do something like this - IRC would most likely be an improvement.

Well, there's the Defcon DS thing, which may or may not have died, and should turn into a decent little earner for them as long as it's half good. Hopefully that cash boost should tide them over to either release Subversion or another stop-gap they come up with while bored. The only update coming wi...

Bit of a boob in the local paper:

MIDLAND football fans have been issued with a World Cup warning: misbehave or you’ll miss the tournament.

Well, if they insist... :twisted:

Yes, I think it was increased to ten. :P As ever with forum things, NeoThermic always promises that it'll all be fixed once phpbb3 rolls around. :wink:

I suppose you could call continuing to have the metaserver may count as support (for defcon, that is)? I also think that as long as they're selling it, they're pretty much obliged to keep that running. As for Multiwinia, as others have mentioned, something or other will most likely happen once D+ is...

How's this for a conspiracy theory? WIND TURBINES - we know they don't produce much electricity, and even what they do produce needs to be backed up by conventional generation, but what if there is another, more sinister reason for their continued erection? Any energy they do produce must have been ...
