Updates Galore

As you may or may not have noticed I have updated this page so now it has no frames yippee... But there are other updates going on, if you have a look in our links section I have added some links to my lrp page, which is also going through some updates. I have also added my companies page, no I am not talking about the man, I am talking about my very own company Anytech. But the main and most astonishing update is Fiona has updated her page majorly, different background, no frames and an integrated blog. Yay!
Saturday scruples still hasn't updated... So I am going to link to an interesting blog entry.
<rant>Supposedly this guy got raided whether because he did or didn't steal some code to a game that is coming out, from what I have seen of the trailers a damn nice game called Half Life 2. Now I own Half Life 1, but as some have said in comments relating to this, if this is the way they are going to treat one of their fans whether he did or didn't do it I will have a long think about buying the game when it comes out... But I mean look at how they have treated their current fan base, bringing out "Steam" a program that is supposed to make it nice and easy to update several half life mods, and make it easy to connect to online games... That is the point though online games, Half Life and its various mod's used to be played hugely at lan parties now that "Steam" has been released people look for something else, something that doesn't require an internet connection to work... They destroyed a huge fan/customer base when they did this and as far as I am aware the fix has not been released and even if it is/has, the people who where playing it have moved on. So lets see went from the most popular game at Lan's to the least popular. I suppose they decided they had sold enough copies and well this is the way to ensure everyone goes out and gets Half Life 2... But most gamers are going to think what's its Half life going to be (pun intended)...Give it a year and they'll do the same thing, so they have been scared away... And it looked like such a good game as well... Ah well. On another point in the comments to this guys blog, there is actually reference to a site where the owners admit to having the code... They have it poster on their site... wtf, why don't they go after these guys... or not... and go well hey they have the source whoop de do, we are going to have copyright measures in place that mean they need to own a copy anyway... don't attack your fans or else you will have none, something the RIAA and MPAA should heed as well. Go open source and GNU. </rant>
Peace out all.
