I met Patrick Connor of Mage Wars but didn’t have time for more than a quick overview. Mage Wars is played on a huge board, and combines elements of trading card games and miniatures wargaming. You do build a deck of spells, but rather than shuffling and drawing them randomly, you can choose which cards to play when. Also, the game comes with all the same cards, so players have access to the same pool of spells, setting it apart from traditional collectible games. It might be a little more involved than what I’m used to, but I’m intrigued. We’ll keep you posted if GeekDad does a Mage Wars review, but in the meantime you can find out more at the website.
That kind of definitiveness is not inherent on the Web. Cool Tools is trying to extract it out of that and counterpoint it…. Here’s one little spot where we’re taking a stand and saying this is the best. Trust me on that and here are my credentials.
As with the Facebook code breach, the U.N. site left itself open to attack by failing implement industry standard security measures. In the case of the U.N. site, hackers gained access via a well-documented SQL injection flaw.

Perkins says OMGYes’ survey approach, while working with a smaller sample size and without the kind of coding you might expect in some qualitative methodologies, asks questions those big research groups do not. The SAGAS-F, for example, maps regions around the clitoris and asks which ones would produce orgasm given stimulation, and then asks for ratings of both the orgasm’s intensity and the effort required to achieve it, on a scale of one to five. OMGYes’ survey asks things like, for women who touch their clitoris indirectly, do they touch it through the skin above the hood, through the skin on the left side, through the skin on the right, or through both lips pushed together like a sandwich? That’s subtlety other research doesn’t get at. (For the record: 69.1 percent above the hood, 19.2 percent left, 20.2 percent right, 28.8 percent sandwich.)
More recently, however, gender-based abuse has been one of Twitter’s biggest problems, as women who speak out against sexism in gaming have been subjected to death and rape threats online. The partnership with WAM will be focused on gender-related issues, but will also look out for harassment that includes racists or violent threats.
What the DHS is concerned about specifically is the company’s anti-virus software.

If Site R is so gosh-darn secret, why did they post this notice, and more importantly, how did we get our grubby little mitts on documents relating to this conference, including an an informational overview, a “Welcome Package“, an agenda, security guidance for attendees, and a schedule of shuttles to Site R (which we are not posting)? Cunning subterfuge? A Deep Throat inside the mountain? A Freedom of Information Act request?
