ok…this is annoying

hey everyone, sorry about i am gonna say next, but i am sick of this. Every year, some small warfare starts between Palestine and Israel, and it always ends with more causalities on our side. However, i am sick of everyone crying about the thing for a week, then moving on. What the hell? Ok, by now, everyone should understand we can not win a battle under the current conditions. We are weaker, poorer, and i am afraid dumber. Crying for a week on these people is just hypocritical.
especially now on facebook, everyone is running random accusations. Instead of this short span attention, we should all focus on a long term plan. Here is the kicker, fighting wont be a part of it, or at least the first many many years. There is no point of fighting a losing battle.

i am just annoying how people care, and i am one of them, while something is happening. Then, they throw everything behind them when they feel they have contributed enough.

World of Warcraft becomes total lagfest… 11.5 million players pissed – WoW becomes unplayable

So what does XZeeR, Elune think about this:

Ever since the release of the new expansion, Wrath of The Lich King, the ever-expanding World of Warcraft has seen a huge influx of new players. But it seems that Blizzard, the game’s developers, are also losing significant portions of their audience as their servers are incapable of dealing with a lot of the pressure that the expansion brings.

A lot of the game’s key areas, most of which are called ‘instances’, have been almost unplayable since the expansion came out. With no improvement thus far, all the most active players are getting the feeling that Blizzard seems to have no intention of fixing this any time soon. Something that hasn’t been denied by their Game Masters’ vague reponses.

Is the world’s largest massive online game finally breaking down due to the immense server loads or are the developers getting lazy due to their strong impenetrable hold on the market that doesn’t look to be in danger any time soon? The latter seems most likely, since increasing server capacity should be no difficult feat for one of the world’s biggest and most successful game developers.

Thank You, Porn! 12 Ways the Sex Trade Has Changed the Web

XZeeR always said how the porn industry helped the development of the internet, PC World  magazine wrote an article about it .

The sex industry is behind many innovations that today’s Netizens can’t live without, as well as some nasty bits we wish had never existed.

Dan Tynan, PC World

For an industry that many people won’t admit they’ve ever patronized, pornography has had an amazing impact on virtually every new medium, from cave painting to photography. Dirty pictures have been credited with ensuring the future of the VCR, boosting cable TV subscriptions, helping to kill off the Betamax and HD DVD formats, and (perhaps most important) driving the growth of the Internet.

In fact, the adult entertainment industry has been on top of many of the Net’s most crucial tech innovations–but not because it invented any of them.

According to Lewis Perdue, author of Eroticabiz: How Sex Shaped the Internet, “without business and technical pioneers in the online sex business, the World Wide Web would never have grown so big so quickly.” (Not that we think size matters.)

The innovations happen because porn is “an ecosystem in which participants are willing–indeed forced–to experiment, and where experimentation isn’t hobbled by common sense, good taste, or bureaucracy,” says Bruce Arnold, principal of Caslon Analytics, a research and analysis firm from Braddon, Australia, that specializes in regulatory issues, demographics, social trends, and technologies.

In an industry notorious for erecting walls of secrecy, hard numbers are difficult to come by, and most evidence is anecdotal. Still, it’s clear that the adult industry has helped shape the Internet as we know it today, even if it has also been at the forefront of a number of less savory innovations. Let’s take a look at a not-entirely-dirty dozen.
