    So... Radek has connectivity problems, and therefore he decides to play a modern mass-market game of the kind which requires internet connectivity to access its DLC and micropayments? Why?

    Hmmm, I wonder if Amazon maybe sells a book called "New York State Parks"?

  • Yeah right (unregistered)

    Why would one play diablo 3 which requires active internet connection when having internet connection problem...

    Well, ebay used to sell "brain - new or used". So, what's wrong with Amazon selling "New York State Parks"?

    The irony is that I would click any ad that looked like that, just to see where it went. And I very rarely click on ads.

    I thought Amazon got rid of their place-holder advertisements. It used to be they would serve up ads for whatever you searched for, but they got bad pr when people searching Google for slaves were informed that they could buy or sell slaves on Amazon.

    I believe it's unconstitutional in the State of New York for the state to sell any of its parks, much to the intense frustration of some corporations.

    A. Customer Number.

    I'm a dinosaur, I bought Diablo 3 not to long ago since I enjoyed playing Diablo 2 long ago. I wasn't aware that single player mode is so network dependent up until now...

    And don't forget the Australian dude that put up New Zealand on eBay. And sold it for 3,000 AUD.

    or order numbers, invoice numbers, part numbers, serial numbers, etc. I always hammer on people to please just handle those as strings, because they're not numbers. "But they have digits!" is the usual reply. So I ask them how to handle 2 * orderNumber - 3 requests.

    And even if something is a number, it does not always make sense to perform any kind of arithmetic operations on them. One example comes from Feynman: one time he is shocked by a school maths textbook, giving temperatures of a few stars, and asking what is the "total temperature" of the stars together, as an "addition exercise".
