OVDoobie Sorry (354 comments)

This whole thing sounds to me a lot like "Hey, sorry you got raped; look on the bright side, at least he used lube".

Internet Communications While At Sea?

OVDoobie File embed in ASCII (504 comments)

This won't get you more internet access, but here is a site that lets you embed files in ASCII art. You could send the ASCII art as text in the e-mails and your family could "decrypt" them on the other end. You might be able to grab their code somehow and use it offline so you don't burn your internet minutes uploading files to it.

Learning To Profit From Piracy

OVDoobie Re:And the price of everything goes up... (275 comments)

Did you even read the other posts? Like someone above you mentioned, there are lots of ways to capitalize on things you give away. Books: autograph signings or serialized content, or paper books. Music: Concerts, t-shirts, hard copy sales (hard to find pirated Vinyl) even iTunes is turning a profit. None of these suggestions lead to any of the things you said, but giving away digital versions will almost certainly increase sales of your other warez. I know some public speakers who make upwards of $200k per speech, everything else they can give away because they make more than enough off speaking alone.

Commerce Department Pushing For New "Copyright Czar"

OVDoobie Re:Easy (294 comments)

Oddly enough, the same goes for the American War on Drugs. 80% of arrests are for simple possession. Before you mod me off topic think about this: if they pass this, and are equally efficient with enforcement how may millions, if not billions, will this cost average Americans (assuming there is no jail time, just fines).
