Oh, that's sooooo lame..... If that's some kinda joke on microsoft, surprise, they don't own the internet. Unix does. HP-UX, Solaris, Linux, stuff like that. Microsoft coudn't run the internet even if they tried.

Don't knock the bots... Dynamix really hit the big one with these bots. The difficulty slider *ACTUALLY* makes the bots harder... Up until the point that they can MA you consecutively with discs, no matter where you are. (MA meaning Mid-Air shot). I usually set the bots at a centimetre or so below the highest setting... But it doesn't matter... I prefer humanoids anyday.

I thought it was rather funny.

And yes, Microsoft owns most of everything, sad, but true. It's hard to precieve the capabilities that Microsoft has with it's influence. In essence what Microsoft says, goes. So far they have the most advanced browser and they keep making it better, the other guys are having a hard time keeping up.. This is why Microsoft gets sued for having a monopoly, it's true. Living in denial is a disgusting and ignorant thing. However, ignorance IS bliss at often times.

In ANY case, this webpage was not designed to say "Microsoft owns the internet" but was rather to simulate your copy of windows (the most popular brand of OS in the world) had shut down the internet, made me laugh anyhow.
