    lol at the relix comment.
    It would seem that this service really needs to mature a little to ensure the games are fully playable without breaking and/or asking for CD's, but to be honest I'd rather Steam had this kind of service ability as for some unknown reason I feel that I'd trust Valve more to deliver the goods.

    I assume that it's a rental system - if you cancel your subs, then any games you've downloaded are no longer playable?

    He said it was like a book club, but with them you get to keep the books and re-read them after you've cancelled.

    Whilst the programme may have no caps, i can see services like this struggling more and more with isp imposed caps and speed restrictions or just having a dodgy line. Seems like it should have launched a couple of years ago.

    Okay that is the last badly written article I will force myself to read from Joe Martin.

    Does that make sense to anyone?

    Sorry to hear that. The first quote you give, 'Internets' is a deliberate mistake intended as a stylistic joke. Like seen here. We all refer to The Internets in the office, so it kind of bleeds into my writing sometimes.

    And, yeah, explaining the joke doesn't make it anymore funny. Like Twain said, "Humour is a frog. If you dissect it to understand it, then you kill it".

    The other one is a typo, annoying I know, but sometimes they slip through. I've now fixed the article:

    wow yes a joke - I know. A very bad one that I'm sick of seeing it.. glad to see you've fixed your typo.
    Might read another but don't hold you breath ;)

    Blast! Our plans to conquer Darkedge's attention have been foiled again!

    Ah, how I remember it well. My 15 year old self wasn't as proficient in English apparantly, as is obvious from mah post. I had a thing once with thing.

    Even back then I was a conversation-killer.
