After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

North Korea Gold Farming MMOs to Fund Nuclear Weapons Programs

"When we get video and film footage from North Korea, it's always in black and white. It's not the film... these people are so evil, they have no color." ~ Lewis Black

The New York Times reports that Kim Jong-Il has resorted to gold farming in MMOs, by infiltrating popular Asian MMOs like Dungeon Fighter Online, to fund... wait for it... nuclear war:

Mr. Chung said the hackers, all graduates of North Korea’s elite science universities, were dispatched from two places: the state-run Korea Computer Center in Pyongyang and the Korea Neungnado General Trading Company. The company, he said, reports to a shadowy Communist Party agency called Office 39, which gathers foreign hard currency for Mr. Kim through drug trafficking, counterfeiting, arms sales and other illicit activities.

South Korean and American officials say they believe the slush fund is worth billions, and that Mr. Kim uses it to help finance his nuclear weapons programs and to smuggle Rolex watches and other luxury goods, which he doles out to buy the allegiance of the party and the military elite. Meanwhile, the bulk of his people suffer privation and myriad hardships.

Apparently, this, uh, monetary effort has raised $6M, which is about enough money to produce a tiny nuclear warhead and have twenty-four North Koreans throw it at us.
