Well, it brought me back to the site after a long, unintended absence, so there’s that!
It also made me realise I already had an account here almost 10 years before I created this account. On one of my old email accounts I just saw an email from Inside Mac Games and I thought: "How the Hell did an email from Inside Mac Games end up on this email account?" Then I read: "Linux-user, Ivela has sent you a new personal conversation entitled "Hello. Here are my photos"." I thought: "What's going on here? Why would I register on a Mac forum while being a Linux user?"
Well, it turns out the particular account is from a time when I had given up on using Windows at home and I had started using Linux for personal use. At my work we were also sick of Windows and we had just purchased our first batch of Macs. So, at work I had just started using a Mac for the first time, I really liked it and I wanted to buy my first Mac. At that time Feral had just released Bioshock for the Mac and I was wondering what kind of copy protection was being used.
I had completely forgotten about it, but it turns out I registered here as a Linux user who was interested in switching to the Mac and I wanted to know what kinds of copy protections were used by companies like Feral and Virtual Programming, as I hate intrusive DRM.

Or we could contact the guy who Frigidman™ called a "crafty asshole" and use him in our advantage. Let him write a script that creates a thousand new accounts that don't do anything else than giving Matt beans.
