    You lied to me! It's only 4:17pm PST! It's not 7! I am reporting you for lying about the time!

    On a serious note, however. What a retarded law in the first place. I tell you, every year it seems like one more rule/law/mandate/precept that takes the blame away from the parents. Fining the kids for renting the games? Did I actually hear IQs take a sharp fall with that one? I did! Fine the companies renting them to the kids, sure. Just like it was SUPPOSED to be if a theater sold tickets to a child for an R rated film (not that it was ever enforced).

    Of course, in the times of things like Gamefly there's not always a "retailed" involved to monitor the kids. So, that means it's the PARENTS responsibility. Sheesh. It never ceases to amaze me that someone always want to point the blame at an outside source for the downfall of youth today instead of stopping and REALLY examining the life INSIDE the home. Yeah, I remember when I started playing Pacman I used to gobble up super pills and munch on ghosts all night long. So influential those video games...

Well, you know how you feel when you wait for an MMO to come out and when it does you feel like you've paid to play it's beta test for another 6-9 months before anything even thinks of working the way it should? Being a network engineer you feel that way about anything Microsoft puts out."
