Yawn. Not enough sleep. Need coffee.
Anyways, strange being back here. I recognise MF, but not too many of the other faces around here.

Yeah, well. The worst that they could get on me is my search history and I'm sure google would just hand that over.

This all just seems like a lot of work. I dunno how they get any of it right. In my experience governments are pretty slack and most government employees are just there to punch in and snooze through the day.

^ I think I had that same issue whenever i tried connecting from the office site or the hotel. Are you getting some apache BS when loading the main site, or a forbidden message when loading directly to a thread? Perhaps try a proxy, it worked for me on one day.

Yeah, I get the same Apache thing. I've had the same issue with another pc with a different firewall and anti-virus, so I dunno what the problem is.

Wow, this has got to be one of the worst defenses that I've ever seen from the Townies. Um. Not that I helped much.

Uh, so the mafia wins. I guess we all kinda expected that.

@Ant - yeah, I will be able to put more effort into a holiday one. For some reason Jcafe bugs out when I access it from work. From home, it should be all good.
5  Activity & Playground / Cosa Nostra / Re: [TMG] DAY 3:Wolf on: December 10, 2011, 05:37:19 PM
Um, okay. I was kinda wondering how the game hadn't ended yet.
Well, I've upvote R3d too and see where this goes.
We're still going to be left with a straight out guessing game at the end it looks like.

Aw crap. This isn't really going according to plan.

Well barring any word from anyone else, we don't really have a good way to vote. The people that aren't around become targets because we have nothing better to go one.
This is one of the quietest mafia games I've seen.
8  Activity & Playground / Cosa Nostra / Re: [TMG] Day 2: Hangover on: December 08, 2011, 05:18:48 AM
Uh, okay, so 8 players left - 5 townies and 3 mafia.
I guess we're better off than if we'd accidentally lynched a townie.

The bad news is that if we lynch a townie and the mafia kill one of us, it's 3-3.
The good news is that even with a random lynching, we've got a 3 in 8 chance of hitting a mafioso.

I just got back from a month working in the Seychelles. It was all good.
Straight from work to the sea and swimming. Since the sea is so clear and calm you can swim really far out. After that, get back, have a shower then a cold beer. The world is a happy place.

Well, I'm back. Went to the Seychelles for a month.
It was good. So good.

Anyways, when are we starting this?
11  Activity & Playground / Cosa Nostra / Re: [TMG] Sign-ups on: October 21, 2011, 10:01:17 PM
Work just got back to me. I'll be off on a secondment starting tomorrow. I'll be back on the 20th of November. I can play anytime after that.

A bit sleep deprived here as well. My damned cat spent most of the night kneading my head.

Anyways, a bit worried. It looks like my office IT department forgot to reset the firewall last time they upgraded the network. That's how I got back on JCafe. Hope they don't notice soon.

Also looks like my Seychelles trip has been moved up. Will probably leave next week. Yay.

17  General Discussions / Word Games / Re: When you flunk a subject that you were fairly confident of passing on: October 20, 2011, 04:55:25 PM
Yeah, that's one of the reasons that I changed courses.
I started out with what I wanted to do - genetics. First year was fun with the molecular bio courses and such, but after talking to the lecturers and stuff I begun to realise that I'd need a Phd at minimum, and I'd never earn much.
So I sold my soul to Mammon, changed to BComm, and haven't looked back.

I like my job, I've done a Masters in Finance and I know earn enough that I can go back and study the other stuff that I missed. I'm registering for Ancient Cultures starting in Jan. Should be fun.

Wow, 118 views so far and no replies. It is a sad state of affairs.

I'll be free from the end of November, but not before that. If you decide to run another game later on, let me know.
19  General Discussions / What about Nachos? / Re: How do you relax? on: October 19, 2011, 10:57:12 PM
Hehe. No not relaxing the ears. You're best off targeting pulse points with cold. The cool spoon over the eyes works like this and the area behind the ear will help cool you down at speed and refresh you. Similarly run cold water over your wrists.

I am pretty lucky. I live in Cape Town between a mountain and the sea. It's about half an hour walk to the mountain and ten minutes to the sea. It's all good. Just parking off and watching the clouds flow down the mountain is a good way to relax too.

I remember plugging an Economics course that I was sure I'd aced. I phoned the lecturer at home and asked him what happened. He dug through and found my paper. It turns out that he's deducted 30% because I didn't label my axis and another 30% because the examples I used were international, rather than local (they didn't specify in the question). I started out with 93% and ended with 33%.
I was really pissed off.
21  General Discussions / What about Nachos? / Re: How do you relax? on: October 19, 2011, 07:17:14 PM
I put two spoons in the freezer, leave them for a while there and then, when I think they're cold enough, I get them and place the convex part of the spoon over my eyes. It's pretty cool and refreshing afterwards, but of course I always resume my post in front of the laptop after I do that so I never really get the full effects, I guess.

Try putting the spoons just behind you ear lobe as well. Works too.

I have the great nack of being able to fall asleep pretty much instantly, regardless of the noise or comfort of my surroundings. If I need to relax, I'll take a half an hour nap. I'll then waste at least another half an hour stumbling around waking up, drinking coffee and having a smoke.

I hate cold showers - even in the middle of summer. Erm.

Anyways, my other option is to take a walk. I'm about ten minutes walk from the coast. It's good to get out and enjoy the sea air.

Replayed FF13 and Resistance 1.
Now messing around with MvC.

...oh, and Tekken as always.
23  Activity & Playground / Computer, Software, Games & Internet / Re: Anticipated Games on: October 19, 2011, 06:13:46 PM
Still waiting on Diablo 3.
Guess TTT2. I suppose they're still patching the arcade version, so it'll probably be about a year before the console release hits.
FF13-2. I know that by buying this game, I'm endorsing Squeenix's decision to re-use the FF13 engine, and also put Sera in a game. I know that both ideas are the devil's armpit, but I can't help myself. It's a Final Fantasy game...
Oh, UMvC3, I guess. Sounds like the buffs for Cap'n make him a lot more cheerful know. I'm happy about that.

... not much else that I really care about. Or it's more a case of not having enough time to care about others... so sad.

So.... have they finished with the curfews in Tokyo now or do they still have electricity restrictions?
25  Activity & Playground / Writing / Re: What book are you currently reading? on: October 19, 2011, 03:38:44 PM

I'm excellent.
Finished my masters. Graduation was a couple of months ago.
Off to the Seychelles for a month or so. I'll get to see giant land tortoises. Yay.

Oh, also JCafe isn't blocked at work anymore...so I'll be lurking and arguing in the news thread...

And three times in the classroom.  I didn't impress him overly much for the last two times but, whatever.  I wasn't going to interrupt the progress of my kids just to pull out some bells and whistles and please him.

Bells and whistles aren't the only to please a man.
Sorry, but I couldn't resist that.

I wonder about the marking of teaching pracs. The best teachers that I had were seldom the conventional ones. Working to please someone usually means you're not working the way you do best.

32  General Discussions / Headlines, Economic, Politics / Re: Hardcover Books Soon Outdated? on: May 05, 2011, 03:51:29 PM
Yeah, there were a lot of us that photocopied or printed out text books. The we got them covered and bound at the varsity library. Although they had large signs up everywhere telling us that copyright infringement was a crime, they didn't care what we were doing unless we were trying to then sell the copied books.

Anyways, overall I think it's a little sad if we start losing printed books. I like the feel of a book in my hand, and the smell of a new book is all good. Hopefully the worries about e-books killing printed ones proves to be unjustified.

35  General Discussions / Headlines, Economic, Politics / Re: Osama bin Laden Is Dead on: May 03, 2011, 07:34:18 PM
Whether Osama was good or bad is completely dependant on who you ask. If you think 9/11 was unprovoked then you probably believe Pearl Harbor was also unprovoked. For some reason the US keeps getting surprise attacks out of nowhere that lead to wars right? Right....

I disagree with this. Whether or not Osama was provoked or not, does not excuse his actions. Attacking civilian targets is wrong. Similarly, the 9/11 attacks are no excuse for the US to go wiping out civian targets in Afghanistan or wherever.

I'm also really getting a little sick and tired of the idea of warring against the 'evil godless USA'. If you don't like them, leave them alone. Go home and enjoy your own country.

@Silv - firstly, I'm not American. Please don't quote me then use personal pronouns refering to the USA as my own country. I'm South African.

The USA has been walking a fine line on the Geneva convention for a long time. The Guantanamo prisons were a good example of this. The US did justify their war to the UN. Whether or not they were lying through their teeth is another matter. Are you viewing this incursion into Pakistan as an act of war? If that's the one that you're talking about, then yeah, they're broken the convention.

About the whole capturing Bin Laden thing, I seriously doubt whether it would've made any difference. Sadam was caught and tried. He didn't explain himself. He just parked off looking bored and then got executed. I don't think Osama would've got up and explained himself - and I mean clearly and rationally - rather than just spouting more hate speech and crap. He had zero reason to explain how he plotted the 9/11 attacks.

The great thing about conspirarcy theories is that you can take almost any information (or lack thereof) and incorporate it into the existing theory.
36  Activity & Playground / Movies & TV Series / Re: What movie(s) did you see this week? Vol. 2 on: May 03, 2011, 05:56:37 PM
Watched Thor on Sunday. Not bad at all. It's pretty hard for them to screw up a superhero movie though, especially the first one. Anyways, I liked it.

Watched JCVD last night. More serious than I expected. Not much in the way of Van Damme doing anything heroic.
37  Activity & Playground / Computer, Software, Games & Internet / Re: Final Fantasy on: May 03, 2011, 05:16:25 PM
FFX question here. I'm replaying the game, so I didn't bother with any walkthroughs or any of that junk. Now I've missed the Al Bhed primer number XXII. It's the one that you're supposed to get after the wedding at the Priest's Passage in the temple of Bevelle. It's the only one that I'm missing. I need it for Rin to give me the Underdog's Secrets.
Anyways, I've gone searching through faqs and most of them say that if you've missed this primer, there is no way to get it back. I've also come across one or two that say that the primers that you're missing randomly appear at Macalania temple. I don't want to waste half a day constantly resetting to check if the primer appears at Macalania though. Can anyone here confirm this?
38  General Discussions / What about Nachos? / Re: How are you today? on: May 03, 2011, 04:49:13 PM
I'm okay. Could be better.
Just had 11 days off and now I'm back at work. Someone broke the back window of my car and it rained a lot last night. Not cheerful.
Having hot choc now, so day looking a little brighter.
39  General Discussions / Headlines, Economic, Politics / Re: Osama bin Laden Is Dead on: May 03, 2011, 04:41:48 PM
The fact that they killed him themselves instead of putting him to trial accordinging to Geneva Convention proves that the US government was lying about 9/11.

Um, doesn't it just mean that they were ignoring the Geneva convention? I don't see how putting a bullet in Osama proves anything.

Anyways, like Mort wrote, regardless of the rest of the crap (US invading Afgh etc), Osama was an evil bastard and the world is better off without him.

Well, at least it's only the US. Hmmm. No one the site can find with my name either.
41  General Discussions / Headlines, Economic, Politics / Re: New Zealand Government Rushes Through Controversial Anti-Piracy Law on: April 20, 2011, 09:32:46 PM
I have no idea what your contract with your ISP says, but I get that they shouldn't be able to track private data streams. I'd put forward that they may have an obligation to monitor streams from sites that are known to traffic in illegal goods - be they torrents or kiddy porn or whatever.

Considering the number of customers that the ISP has, I doubt that they were specifically monitoring you. Most likely they have programs that run to track unusual activity, whether that simply means excessivly high bandwidth useage or actual contract with dodgy sites is another matter. How much access that have to your account is another problem. I suppose they need to monitor accounts for the protection of the clients as well.

I don't think that they have any right to pass on your information to 3rd parties though - unless that party is a law-enforcement agency. If you torrent a game, they shouldn't be able to tell the manufacturer. They should be able to tell the police who can then decide what to do with the information. I'd vote to have the selling of personal information made illegal - from websites or private companies. I'm damned sure that my bank gave my email address and phone number to a call centre and that pisses me off.

While I get that the manner in which the ISP obtained the information is problematic, I'm not surprised that it has come to this. For ages the internet has been ungovernable. This has been all happy and cheerful, but has also made it the playground for illegal activities. Since we’re incapable of self government, it’s only expected that the government (through ISPs) will have taken novel routes to try to enforce good behaviour.
42  General Discussions / Headlines, Economic, Politics / Re: New Zealand Government Rushes Through Controversial Anti-Piracy Law on: April 20, 2011, 09:03:03 PM
This is citizen censorship. It is exactly the kind of law that lays the foundation to erodes privacy and freedom of expression of future generations. Go through this door and you open a whole new path to wider ranges of censorship and suppression.

So trying to stop theft is a slippery slope into censorship and suppression? Uh, what? That's it. Copyright infringement isn't about the feedom of speech, it's about taking something without paying for it.
I'm guilty of this. Hell, most everyone I know is guilty of torrenting movies, music, games etc. Let's not try to kid ourselves that we're doing this for some noble cause, like freedom of information, or 'sticking it to the man'. We're doing this because we're cheap and because it's easy.
We've been doing this for so long that we're stopped caring that it is illegal. Now we get pissed off because the gov is leaning on the serivce providers to get us to stop. "Oh, how can they monitor me? I may be a criminal, but that's no excuse for them to check what I've been downloading" - is that what you're trying to say. I dunno if you get to play the personal freedom card in defence of theft.
43  General Discussions / Word Games / Re: Peter Thiel: We’re in a Bubble and It’s Not the Internet. It’s Higher Education. on: April 20, 2011, 05:21:49 PM
The thing is that there has been a definite move away from specialisation in the last few years. We used to have Technicons - technical colleges where people went to learn trades. It could be anything - hair dressing, plumming, cabinet making, electrician. You'd have to spend 2-3 years there training up. Once you were done, you were pretty much set to go out there, get a job in your field, and start work. You were given a diploma in a specific field, rather than a degree. Attendees were tiered below varisity students, but still far above high schoolers.

These technicons were pretty much all shut down or just their grounds were absorbed into the existing universities. Specific skills training just doesn't happen anymore. I don't think that's a good thing.
44  General Discussions / Word Games / Re: Peter Thiel: We’re in a Bubble and It’s Not the Internet. It’s Higher Education. on: April 20, 2011, 04:54:54 PM
^ I was also wondering that.

I don't think this is a new idea. Here in South Africa it's pretty much a given that you need to go to varsity. A lack of a degree means that you have trouble getting a job - even a crappy one. Not going to varsity is viewed as failing at life. I don't understand that. University was always supposed to be for those people that needed the further study for their jobs.

I always thought that things worked a little better in the UK. Not everyone finishes school; not everyone goes to varsity. While going to varsity is still seen as the thing to do, not going doesn't mean that you're writing off your life. You'll just be doing a job that doesn't require the additional years of study.
45  General Discussions / Headlines, Economic, Politics / Re: New Zealand Government Rushes Through Controversial Anti-Piracy Law on: April 20, 2011, 03:57:01 PM
Hmmm. I understand the issue here with the Government forcing through laws when people aren't paying attention, but I don't actually see too much wrong with the nature of the law that they passed.

Effectively they're saying that if you break the law, they'll ask you to stop. If you do it again, they'll ask again. If you do it a third time, they'll take your net away for 6 months. This doesn't seem like Draconian measures to me.

The cannabilism itself doesn't give you diseases, it's just that it's very easy to transfer diseases from the corpse to the consumer.

The flip side of this is that eating people is actually just about the best source of protein out there. You won't be missing anything and your body spends a whole lot less energy breaking down the proteins into aminos (since most are already in the, uh, required format).
