This is done without sending any information to Microsoft
Well at least that's how WindowsUpdate used to be. Apparently it now does send information, and more than it really needs to:
- The Inquirer article
- Slashdot article
- Original tecChannel article (unfortunately you have to pay to view the whole article)
But we all trust that Microsoft would never do anything it shouldn't do with all that data, now don't we?
Peak District trip edited highlights
Drove up, arrived, settled in, did little else.
On the second day I forgot my camera. We did a lovely 8-mile walk up to and around Kinder Plateau though.
Took a walk up from Castleton (where we were staying) up the side of Mam Tor. Was not impressed by the condition of the road. ☺
(the road was closed in the late 1970s due to subsidence - the entire side of the hill is gradually sliding downwards).
We also visited some caves, but the pictures didn't come out too well.
Took a walk along an old railway line:
And then went home.
I could show you more pictures but I think you've suffered enough.

In other news I'm back from a short break in the lovely Peak District. Some selected pictures may follow.
Well I guess it's kinda comforting to know that I'm not the only one. :(
[17:47:37] <Cosmo_> was it a bad idea for me to try and run the attachment?
Urd vs. Urd
Today we introduced the new Voidwars Multiple Account Detection System (VMADS).
Today we detected a multitude of multiple-account abuse.
I can't tell you how VMADS works, since then people would know how to avoid detection, but trust me, it's really cool ok ☺. It does however annoy me that people want to create multiple accounts in this game in order to cheat, especially since there is a strictly limited number of places available in the game, so every person with a multiple account is preventing a valid player from joining. Hopefully though this new system should help us to crack down on this.
If only there were a guaranteed 100% successful detection method...
