Man campaigns for end to immoral games

Filed under

MIAMI-BASED ANTI-VIDEO GAME lawyer Jack Thompson, owner of - a website that urges game-addicted children to seek help with their violent problems - stands for morals, and keeping America free of game-influenced attacks and crime. With the despicable appearance of the "hot coffee" mod in the media, the INQ thought it only right to publicise this man's campaign against immoral video games.

On his website, he mentions games such as Grand Theft Auto (big surprise) and Manhunt as being major influences on murder and crime in America. He claims that "two teenage Tennessee snipers" trained obsessively on GTA before going on their "sniping spree." He says: "numerous others have been murdered by teens trained on this game."

Another game used to obsessively train for murder was accurate murder-simulator Doom, says Jack, which the boys behind the Columbine massacre had used - presumably strafing left and right through the Columbine corridors, holding their BFGs up to their square heads.

Jack Thompson, defender of America, is also credited for having rapper Ice T's "cop killer" pulled from the shelves in yet another victory for free speech.

One gamer mentioned to Thompson that he was hooked on Grand Theft Auto, to which he allegedly replied "go buy a suicide simulation game, and get hooked on that".

Gamers are clearly to blame for everything according to Thompson, and we at the INQ agree. As Thompson says, if you have kids, have them start shooting hoops instead of humans. µ

Data indicates that Android picked up global market share from iOS last month

Tracking mobile web traffic, NetMarketShare computes the market share for mobile operating systems. Based on the data from last month, Android was able to widen its gap over iOS globally. Considering that the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus weren't launched until September 25th, the recently released phones accounted for a miniscule part of the data. The new models won't have a major effect on the results until the figures for this month are released. Read more

RapidDisk / RapidCache 3.4 now available.

RapidDisk is an advanced Linux RAM Disk which consists of a collection of modules and an administration tool. Features include: Dynamically allocate RAM as block device. Use them as stand alone disk drives or even map them as caching nodes to slower local disk drives. I pushed 3.4 into the mainline earlier this morning. Changes include:
  • Added ability to autoload RapidDisk volumes during module insertion.
  • Fixed bug in RapidDisk (volatile) volume size definition across 32 to 64 bit types.
  • Making use of BIT() macro in the driver.
  • Removed RapidDisk-NV support. It was redundant with the recently kernel integrated pmem code.
You can pull it from the git, yum, ZYpp & apt repos or download it from the SourceForge project page. To stay updated, you can follow the RapidDisk Google+ page.
