I am SO happy tomorrow's friday, and I am thrilled for Ilene and her family.
"er 2 sons have come home from Iraq"
that's aweosme! ^_^
and hyde loos so evil it's cute XD
as for the filesharing thing >_< uggh,people are going to do it regardless, and putting peoples computers at risk for that is just not cool at all. and what about the cds that are already on shelves or in peoples homes??? >.>
Glad to read your friend's sons are back at home. =)
About the Sony "incident", I was going to explain it in my journal about two weeks ago when the rootkit was discovered; but then again I thought most wouldn't have understood its implications anyway and would have replied something like "no matter what they do, someone will always pirate it" which was not the idea behind explaining just what sony did to its customerbase.
Basically, I'm glad they are recalling all those CD's with the "virus" they implanted on it, but I doubt they will change their attitude. They'll just come up with a more effective piece of DRM software next time. BTW, at the risk of sounding like I'm beating a dead horse (yet again) I just have to point out that that rootkit is yet another confirmation that Windows (the target) is a very insecure OS that can do more wrong than good, especially these days.
(I made a little note in one of my earlier entries this week explaining my position about it and what I think lies behind the "rootkit incident".) But if you want to read more techie information about it, go here
Also, please check this link
which explains quite well what DRM is and what the industry is trying to push on us. (And why we should oppose it)
I was really against that war from the beginning, both for the Iraqi people and all the Americans that lost their lives there. It just seems like such an unecessary massacre. I'm really happy some families, including your friend's, are able to see their sons again. Because many aren't.
Hopefully this world will be less stupid some day... and Bush will calm down in the next couple of years.
It's in ENGLISH! ^-^ Well thats not very smart, is it now... might lead to some suying even. Would be deserved; they should have tested their thing.
