Hot Coffee flushed with new patch

Filed under
Gaming

The blistering caused by the Hot Coffee drama in Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas may have caused irreparable damage to some virgin eyes, but a new patch from the controversial developer is hoping to ease some of the pain. Rockstar has released the "No More Hot Coffee" patch, which prevents a widely distributed modification for the PC edition of San Andreas from opening up sexually explicit minigames that were developed by Rockstar and left in retail versions of the game as unused code.

On the Web site Nomorehotcoffee.com, Rockstar Games issues the following statement: "The 'Hot Coffee' scenes were not intended to be part of the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas experience. If your copy of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for PC has been altered by the unauthorized 'Hot Coffee' download circulating on the Internet, or if you wish to prevent your version from being so altered, follow the appropriate link below to download and open the 'No More Hot Coffee' game patch."

Interested parties can download the 11.2MB patch now at GameSpot DLX. Currently there are no such preventitive measures for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions of San Andreas.

The patch also fixes other features of the game, including various crashing issues, timing in the dance minigames, and support for 720p and 1080i HDTV-resolution monitors.

Let’s start off by taking a look at the open source application that rivals Google Analytics for functions: Piwik. Piwik does most of what Google Analytics does, and chances are it packs the features that you need. Those features include metrics on the number of visitors hitting your site, data on where they come from (both on the web and geographically), from what pages they leave your site, and the ability to track search engine referrals. Piwik also has a number of reports and you can customize the dashboard to view the metrics that you want to see. To make your life easier, Piwik integrates with over 65 content management, ecommerce, and online forum systems like WordPress, Magneto, Joomla!, and vBulletin using plugins. With anything else, you just need to add a tracking code to a page on your site. Read more

AN EARLY VIEW OF GTK+ 3.16

We’ve had long-standing feature requests to turn scrollbars into overlayed indicators, for touch systems. An implementation of this idea has been merged now. We show traditional scrollbars when a mouse is detected, otherwise we fade in narrow, translucent indicators. The indicators are rendered on top of the content and don’t take up extra space. When you move the pointer over the indicator, it turns into a full-width scrollbar that can be used as such. Read more

Linux Container Security

Hypervisors present a smaller attack surface than containers. This is somewhat mitigated in containers by using seccomp, selinux and restricting capabilities in order to reduce the number of kernel entry points that untrusted code can touch, but even so there is simply a greater quantity of privileged code available to untrusted apps in a container environment when compared to a hypervisor environment[1].
