WallyDrinkBeer It's a Trap (145 comments)

No thanks. This is a fix from a strange company in a country that is not America. How can that be a good idea?

Appeals Court Strikes Down California's Violent Game Ban

WallyDrinkBeer Lobbyists Duke it Out (190 comments)

The violent move industry is losing market share to the violent video game industry. The video game industry is not paying their hired scum politicians enough apparently.

RIAA To Stop Prosecuting Individual File Sharers

WallyDrinkBeer Re:Awareness that is wrong (619 comments)

I'm not sure how much luck the RIAA will have with those.
Microsoft and SCO got together and tried to shutdown those particular torrents a few years back. It didn't work out so well.

Australian Court Lets Lawyer Serve Papers Via Facebook

WallyDrinkBeer Re:Wait, via Facebook? (204 comments)

I'm sure Facebook would be happy to supply IP/date-time details if they were Chinese bloggers. Alas, they are just Australian deadbeats.

Technical Specs Released For Aussie Net Filtering

WallyDrinkBeer How to Stop .torrents (231 comments)

I'm fairly sure one of the first things added to the list will be torrent indexes. No more TPB or ISOHunt for Australians. This is exactly what Australian media companies want: they used to have it good, they would hold over US shows and movies for rating windows and screw over viewers that just wanted to watch stuff current.

The big problem is, Australian media holds a lot of sway with the scum that is an Australian politician.

Of course you'll be able to access them in a round-about fashion. Maybe it will eventually become illegal to bypass the filter, call it hacking. Aussie freedom will go, china style.
