I use "WPA2-PSK so don't even bother"
Interestingly, the Netgear at my parent's place allows the ' in the SSID but my Billion doesn't.

Managing Last.FM's "Mountain of Data"

Catchwa Re:all this data yet so much gets missed (139 comments)

soundamus already does this (albeit in the form of an RSS feed as opposed to an email)

I have sometimes wondered why record companies haven't tried to subpoena Last.FM logs when people scrobble a leaked (and therefore pretty much guaranteed to be pirated) song. Seems stupid enough for the RIAA to do.

Was Australia's Earth Hour a Joke?

Catchwa Catchwa writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Catchwa writes "The second annual Earth Hour took place globally last night but in the city of it's origin, Sydney, the data doesn't seem to be clear cut in support of it. The live readings captured from electricity supplier websites don't seem to support a statistically significant drop in usage across the hour. Instead, there seems to be a small increase in the overall power consumption of the day. This seems to back up similar data from the 2007 inaugural event."
