Don't Panic, It's Towel Day!

Willeh Coincidence? I think not! (164 comments)

Today is also Nerd Pride Day, but that's probably not a coincidence. Whichever hoopy frood thought of towel day should have been slapped with a Salmon of Doubt so that this never came to be!

Mininova Starts Filtering Torrents

Willeh Big Yawn (267 comments)

Sounds like they don't want any hits anymore. Meanwhile, alternatives like the Piratebay, isohunt & torrentreator are likely beefing up their infrastructure to accomodate the increase in traffic. There has been speculation on dutch tech sites that they only did this to appease the dutch copyright vigilantes, so they are making a half-assed effort to filter some stuff out. Let's face it, a torrent site without any "illegal" (under dutch law, downloading music & movies is LEGAL!) content is about as useful as a 3-legged, dead dog. With a nasty case of fleas.

Willeh Polish & slickness are buzzwords (871 comments)

What one person perceives as "slick" or "polished" another user will describe as unnecessary or cluttered. Comparisons of relative slickness are therefor meaningless, especially if you don't provide any SCREENSHOTS, or you know...proof.
