Good morning sportsfans! Natural Treasures by Deb took part in a jeweler's blog hop wherein we show you pictures of our messy workshops. Ever wonder what Deb's living room looks like when she hasn't cleaned it up because company is coming over? Here's your big chance. Also you can see other people's studios. Just take a gander over to http://naturaltreasuresbydeb.blogspot.com/ and check it out.

The time it takes for me to get from Nar Shadda to Tatooine is less than half the time it takes for me to get from the space port on Tatooine to the cantina on Tatooine. I generally love this game but there are some very messed up things about it and that you have to run all over the place is one of them.

There definitely is some disparity in travel times for different circumstances. I need to look for it, but it may have been part of the last Q&A session on the forums with BioWare; they are tossing around the idea of allowing for speeders inside the spaceports or some other ability to get out and about quicker.

I know it's being discussed, so hopefully we'll see some good solutions coming along in a future patch.

Still think the Occupy protesters are being treated fairly? And btw Mr Meighan -- I don't think getting thrown against the pavement face first is just "doing a job."

On the whole, yes. I don't have all of the information on this particular incident to say in this case.

So Dr Zeschuk, you told a friend that if he'd quit over the insult to non 50 level players he didn't care about the game in the first place. You are very correct sir. The game isn't worth caring about. Its just a bunch of 1s and 0s and pixels and stuff. The people are what I care about -- and the people are leaving because you insulted them and the hard work they did to make your game successful. So now I am thinking of leaving too. Because its not the game that makes it for me -- its the friends that play it.

There's a surprising lack of corn porn on the internet.

so I'm feeling more and more like I should delete my FB account due to datamining. But this is tempered by the feeling that if I go that route for that reason, then I shouldn't participate in any social networking website because it isn't as if Google or Twitter are the nice kind privacy respecting companies that we dream of. They are in the datamining business as well and always have been.

You don't have to be on a social network to be "datamined." Your Internet provider records every page you visit and many aggregate that info (supposedly anonymously) and sell it. Your credit cards and debit cards may do the same. Many cell phones leave a GPS location everywhere your phone goes. Product identification / theft protection systems can be read (scanned) by as much as a 100' distance. Stores connect what you buy to your payment method and if it's not cash they know what you're buying by your name. Even the data in the US Census is made public. In most places in the US your image is captured by dozens, if not hundreds, of cameras every day. The only country with more cameras than the US is Great Britain. In many places the cameras are capturing an image of your retina and comparing it to a database all without your permission or, in most cases, your knowledge. Remember when you had to give permission to be fingerprinted or arrested? Need I give more examples?
So, privacy is an illusion. And given that I fail to see why people are so freaked out about datamining. And Google appears, at least, to be more responsible in their use of their collected data than Facebook or Twitter or Yahoo.
I can understand being concerned about how the data will be used. If it's only to try to sell us things we don't need and may not want where's the problem? If the purpose is more nefarious, well...
Anyone who is seriously concerned with maintaining privacy (and complete privacy is total anonymity) needs to get completely off the radar. That means moving to a remote region (like northern Canada), destroying all your identification, living completely off the grid without a phone, internet, mail service or anything else that connects you to any other living person outside of your significant other.
Ridiculous, right? Yes, totally. Given that, IMO, being vigilant is the prudent thing to do and the only thing practical. Social networking has been so successful because we're social animals and although none of us need Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or any other one I would feel poorer without the ease of interactions with persons all over the world that I would not otherwise have.
