US flies B52 aircraft over disputed islands in East China Sea in defiance of Chinese air defence rules.

Chinese government officials responded on Tuesday, calling the acts, “A real dick move because they know we’re not going to fight them. They’re just doing it to impress their girlfriend, Japan.”

U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel addressed the criticism, claiming, “China keeps talking shit like it’s gonna do something, and I was basically like, ‘if you’re feeling froggy, jump bro!”

Both nations are expected to discuss these concerns at the Six Party Conference during 5th period.

Fail Reporting

I was reading The Tsarnaev brothers’ troubled trail to Boston and I found a something that blatantly wrong with the text. [http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-boston-suspects-20130428-dto,0,15030.htmlstory

“When Chechens fought for independence in the 1990s after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Moscow crushed the rebellion.”  

lol nope Yelstin’s 90′s were a period of turmoil. Russia attempts to stop the rebellion failed and Russian troops were deserting  It was said that only people in military were those that were too stupid to burn the notice papers. Russia sued for peace and the first war ended with de facto indepence for Chechnya. 

 

When Russia crushed the rebellion was in the 2000′s when the moderate government was ineffective and the country was run by fundamental Muslim warlords with public executions. Chechnya terrorist bombed Moscow apartments and a new President went into Chechnya bombing the capital and cracking down with an iron fist.

Stoffi Player

The is no shortage of music players each one with a unique take on how such an app should look and function. From the humble Windows Media Player to the feature-packed Winamp to the infinitely customizable foobar2000, there’s something for every taste. But just when you thought we had every base covered, I came across Stoffi Music Player.

Stoffi Music Player makes it easy to find your music, create playlists, and even play YouTube videos. Supporting over 20 audio formats including MP3, M4A, OGG, FLAC and AAC, Stoffi is free to download, is being actively developed and can update itself automatically so you get the latest fixes and features as they’re released. It’s great for those with sprawling music libraries and fans of minimalistic apps alike.

War Z Removed from steam

War Z, the horrible horrible game that for some reason got past any reasonable doubt and was released on steam, was removed from the new released list. Valve has released a statement.

“From time to time a mistake can be made and one was made by prematurely issuing a copy of War Z for sale via Steam. We apologize for this and have temporary removed the sale offering of the title until we have time to work with the developer and have confidence in a new build. Those who purchased the game and wish to continue playing it via Steam may do so. Those who purchased the title via Steam and are unhappy with what they received may seek a refund by creating a ticket at our support site here.”

War Z at the time of this post is still listed. “Foundation Release” of The War Z on December 17 it became the top selling game on Steam partly because people confused it with Day Z. War Z is a remodeled version of War Inc that was quickly made after Day Z became popular, heck  even the “Foundation Release” name came from Dean ‘Rocket’ Hall of Day Z fame.

System Shock and Thief 2 Mods

Under the title “Its not too late, its never too late” There are two mods that I found out about that add widescreen support and important bug fixes. Also included is 32-bit color support; “textures can now be automatically promoted to 32-bit, improving quality and effectively eliminating the palette limit.”
