Games After days and days of the Playstation Network being offline, Sony has announced it has taken the service down indefinitely. The cause is a lot more severe than previously thought: PSN has been systematically attacked, and personal information of all users has been stolen, possibly including credit card data. Sony is asking PSN users to keep close tabs on their credit card account statements. This has turned from a rather amusing slap on the wrist for Sony into a massive and truly epic security fail that could have tremendous consequences for millions and millions of people the world over.

As for guns, here in the US, the idea was for people to have the tools necessary to fight a government if need be, and treating the risk of irresponsible use as acceptable.


Well, if that is the argument for allowing guns in the public, most US Citizens lost their right to a gun when they let the second Bush administration run the country into the ground.

But then, most people in democracies get the government they deserve, and who am I to complain (living in Austria with a government as bad as the Bush administration but luckily not the power to do as much damage - which means we have to eat our own shit).
