I'd like to point out that people who are away from imternet for prolomged periods of time probably aren't able to or choise to participate in forums... So its obviously going to skew against those of us with that problem. Only for them to discover the problem the next time they are able to update.

Or have I misunderstood?

There could be a few special cases where this wont work well for them, ED will have to figure that out. But making a global statement that this is somehow locking us all from our software is silly.
Cannot believe what I am about to do , defend starforce

Starforce asks you once at activation
The new system asks you every 4 days then disables your software if it cannot phone home

How often does that happen? You seem to be on the internet right now?

"I certainly don't want to have a situation where I want to play DCS but either my internet connection is down for some reason or the ED server is down, however uncommon those situations might be."

So, I don't have this problem now with StarForce, but this is going to change while being presented as something done to my benefit.

And yes, as I work online, I've certainly had my share of annoying prolonged Internet or server dropouts which is why this announcement fills me with discomfort.

Again, how will this effect you personally? Do you go long periods of time with out Internet? You seem to be on these forums a lot.

Looking at your posts you havent missed a day in a while that I can see.

Again, how often do you go long periods of time without Internet, show me that many people go long periods of time without internet, I can take that to ED to suggest a change.
