Live Sync, sadpants; SugarSync, yay! [UPDATE] Nevermind

To call me a little bit OCD is putting things lightly; I make the most picky of organizers look sloppy. This extends to both my personal and work spaces and the contents of my hard drive. This has become an escalating problem, especially on the hard drive end of things, the more computers I obtain. […]

If you didn't want it groped, don't wear that slutty dress!
If you didn't want it groped, don't wear that slutty dress!

So, Electronic Arts makes a game. 1. To advertise this game, which is some riff off of Dante's Inferno, they craft a series of publicity stunts around the various circles of Hell and sins and so on/so forth.

Summarizing opposition to LGBT players in MMOGs

So my previous post got linked on WoW.com a couple days ago. Due to a linking mixup it happened a bit too late to get noticed in the initial read-through– fortunately or un- depending on your position I suppose– and I missed pretty much all the traffic from their entry.

Homophobia, sexism, racism and online games
Homophobia, sexism, racism and online games

Last week GLAAD sent out a press release announcing their intention to start a project meant to combat homophobia in online video games and communities. On the surface this might sound like a great idea, unless you happen to actually be familiar with any of those communities, then the warning bells would be going off. […]
