This is DATA


But the best part is how the replies in the thread are almost exclusively from billion dollar media conglomerates asking permission for they and their licensees to use the video "for free without restriction in all media".

    Deserves to burn for that grating grammar error.

      Maybe it's supposed to cut to a picture of everyone's favorite synthetic lieutenant.

      Since "data" is plural it should say "This are data."

      • MattyJ says:

        I feel like 'data' can be used with a singular verb to mean the whole... I'm no grammarian, though.

    • thielges says:

      I always thought this was just another difference between American and UK English. Both make sense. The plural referring to the records and the singular referring to the container, usually a file or packet. The only time I hear data as a plural is when it is delivered with a British accent.

    I wasn't aware that you had Tempest or Star Wars @DNA. I hope one day to witness them myself. Last year, I went to "Arcade Club" in Bury, UK, as part of a Stag weekend, which has two floors of arcade machines from various eras. Coincidentally (or not), my two favourite games at the whole place were Tempest, and Star Wars '83 (which they had at least two instances of, situated next to a '93 or '98-era Star Wars game, which only served to highlight how fantastic the '83 one was)
