Petter came back, groveling out his apologies for insulting the Dalai Lama. We’re still not sure whether or not this has anything to do with his sudden absence last week.
Note to our iTunes listeners: There seems to have been a problem with the episode, which could lead to duplicates showing up in some of your feeds. Let me know if the episode, entitled “023 – King Kong died for your Sins” doesn’t work for you by commenting below or sending me a message at @BrekiT or @CSICON on Twitter.
In the Weekly Woes and Winnings of the World, we find SOE has announced some of what they’re going to do to make things up to their customers. SOE’s servers come online, login-servers crash from load, people are barred from entry because they are flagged as “underage”, everything seems back to relatively normal. But as things are settling, we find out that Square Enix has been hacked!
Also, Facebook guilty of smear campaign against Google. Kettle, you’re super black. Some more info coming from this site too. Basically, at the same time that we realize that they’ve been leaking oodles of personal information, they’re blaming Google for being lax on personal integrity and security.
In The Wired and Wonderful, we get the sad news that Obi-Wan Kenobi is dead. This may not matter, because Judgement Day (or the Rapture) is coming! May 21st is the End of the World, according to the loons over at Family Radio. This is massive and has led people to donate their life savings to … well, to Jesus, I assume, just because they really believe that the world is ending in just under a week! Kind of like these guys. Also, a bunch of crummy television series have just been cancelled. We’re still waiting to hear whether or not this is related to the pending religious event and if the studio execs were trying to buy themselves some Karma … or whatever it is Christians believe in; Christ-points or something.
Also, big thanks to @orchidpussy for the new CSICON avatar and her Dr. Who reviews!
