Internet & Networking Yesterday, it was revealed GoDaddy actively supported SOPA - to the point of arrogance and dedain towards those opposing the US censorship law. As a result, a boycott was instated on reddit, which was picked up all over the web. Today, the company rescinded its support for SOPA - but for some high-profile clients, it's too late. Behold, the power of the internet.

If Steam went away today (and you can simulate this by pulling your plug) the Steam client times out while trying to login. You get a message that there is "no connection" to Steam. All the games work in offline mode.

Of course, any games you didn't currently have downloaded would be inaccessible, but did you really need ALL of them? I've got my CD case full of games that I bought legally and I don't play. Besides, I only pay around 5 bucks for the games I do buy on Steam, you don't need to buy it right when it comes out when there is so much awesome content that is only 1 year old at 5 bucks.
