comment Why does steam keep asking if I'm over 18?
The cookie system, by the way, is not "clever" by any means and provides abyssal user experience should someone misenter their birth date. That, plus the annoyance of the prompt every single time, plus 1/3 of users (!!!) entering a fake birth date is very indicative of how bad of an idea this is.

Cannot be circumvented or gamed? Don't you just have to make up a birth date?

comment Is Angry Birds deterministic?
Guys, this whole discussion is nonsensical. In IT a program is deterministic if every time you run it, without changing the operating system settings, it always gives the same result. So if the program calls rand() it's not deterministic even if the number is not really random; there is no need to go so deep with the meaning of the word. We'll soon end up in a discussion about the existence of free will if we continue to try to go up the chain

@Daenyth: are you sure that the input resolution precision is 1 pixel? It may be, but what I'm saying is that it is not necessarily.

@Origami: I can't be sure, if I could be I wouldn't have needed to ask here would I =) In any case what makes me suspect that there may be a random factor involved is that the input resolution can't be so high
