As part of the Community beta, you can also add shortcuts to your other games to your steam menu. Mildly pointless, now that I own most of my games on Steam, and given that Steam takes quite a while to start up - although, a Steam entry has appeared in my services management console, so it might not be slow for long.
Rather than add the icons of my (admittedly pirated) id games to Steam, I just bought their entire catalogue (minus, notably, Quake 4). And Company of Heroes (amazing), and Dawn of War (plus expansions). And Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved. And it's only two months before I'm buying the Orange Pack. Valve must be raking it in.
But, really, they deserve it. I hate dealing with patches. Steam is just too damn convenient - at least for those of us with broadband.
New Zealand is not a country growing increasingly tolerant of crime. In fact, the opposite is true; we are growing more intolerant. This is a graph of our prison population. The black line is historical data, reaching back to 1994. The source is the Ministry of Justice, who would know because, well, they have to feed these people:
"But," you might say, "this rise is surely indicative of a rise in crime. Are we not in the clutches of a crime wave?". Well, no, we're not. The total per capita crime rate has fallen 25% since 1992. The crime rate for dishonesty offences, a class which includes theft and burglary, has fallen 32% since 1996. Compare those figures with the above graph.
"But hasn't the violent crime rate gone up? That's what the TV tells me!" Sure, the rate has risen from 107 to 118 violent crimes per thousand citizens, since 1996. But, as the SNZ report says, "in reality, the increase in violent offences is virtually solely attributable to an increase in threats and intimidation" (they grew 37%). Combine that with changes in "propensity to report crime" (the proliferation of cellphones, in particular), campaigns targeting domestic violence (and, recently, child abuse) and media interest, and you begin to get the picture.
So, while crime is down 25%, incarceration is up 75%. And this is tolerance for crime?
The rise in our prison population is something we should be concerned about. And the crime rate shows we should be concerned not because our streets are growing more dangerous (they're not), but because our sentences have reached beyond justice and into revenge.
Nobody deserves to be a victim of crime. But state-instituted punishment, especially on behalf of victims, is, itself, an injustice.
This is it, almost finished. The halyard attaches to the bottom strake, where the 'lolly mechanism' is. Yep, that's the technical term, because kontiki fishing is endemic to New Zealand (modern kite fishing is fairly endemic too).
We would name the kontiki itself, but the board already bears the name 'Slick Stick' (crappy Engrish marketing, don't ask me). And, seeing as it's square-sailed and against the mast, I didn't want to go through the hassle of backwinding it. At least the red colour will make it go faster.
I would definitely recommend the soundtrack though, and if they don't have one, I'd recommend going to see the movie just for the music. The Reduction Agents, besides having a cool band name, sound awesome. Might go looking for their album.
In the morning,
I felt spited,
Your cruel words, your
You missed the essence,
the content and the
You missed all.
Yet, you chimed in with your opinion
of the proceedings, your judgement,
unasked and unheeded.
It is, perhaps, the worst thing,
To be misjudged and ignored;
Not rejected on merits,
But rejected by things you
I hate you still.
