Unfortunatelly, I won't be able to join you guys this weekend, but I'll be around for the other races.

I feel like I've lost one of my friends... How can this be? It doesn't make any sense...
I can only say you'll be deeply missed, Ryan.
My condolences to his wife, his family, and all of his many many friends.
2. A patent protects the , while a copyright protects the . One way I have seen people describe the difference is that patents protect things and copyrights protect ideas, but that is a little too simplistic and also slightly backwards. As mentioned, patents protect ideas, not copyrights.
I got a little confused here about patents. Why do people describe the difference between the two as patents protect things and copyrights protects ideas if they do exactly the opposite? The 'follow the money' example helped me understand this point though. It clarified this for me a little bit."
The key word for patents is "industrial applicability". A patent protects an idea too, but an idea that has potential for being used in some kind of industry. Check this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Industrial_applicability for a good explanation.
And to clarify, be sure to understand that when I say "industry", I mean it in the strict sense of the word, not in the broad sense, as in "movie industry".
I'm happy to say i'm a user since this Giant Bomb was merely a firecracker.
Way to go!
The most important thing for a beginner is to learn how to use the keyboard, hotkeys, control groups, the likes. Don't even think about strategies before you do that. If you were to learn how to play tennis, first you'd be shown HOW to swing the racket, not WHERE you should place the ball. I see too many people trying to approach SC2 this way, they want to know how to 4 gate, how to stop 4 gate, how to cheese, and end up skipping the basics. And yes, you're better off playing with friends while you learn the basics than throwing yourself at ladder, where you'll get cheesed a lot on Bronze league.
