as a father...
I have to say I wouldn't have a problem with a tourist taking pictures of my little girl on the tube. Even if he was a peadophile. How is havig a picture of my daughter on the train going to affect her in anyway? If he can get hs rocks off to it then thats creepy, but he hasn't hurt her in anyway. 99.9% of people who take pictures are not peadophiles. It's about time people in this country realised that.
I was at a wedding just the other week and took photos of my girl playing with other kids, I didn't know them but it made a nice picture.
People are far to sensitive these days!
I like using my credit card for anything I can, I get cash back through my card, I don't using cash.
Plus it costs me nothing to use it.
it's easier when using self serve check outs as well. until they have to check your age of course....
The agument isn't about if downloading copyrighted material is illegal or not, we all know it is. The argument is if making links to places where you can download copyrighted material is. This court ruling has said it is, therefore according to this interpretation google are just as guilty. as are yahoo and most other search engines.
If I tell a burglar where you live does that make me a criminal if he breaks in to your house and steals your car?
is anyone else getting sick of his I didn't know about it defense?
As the guy "running" the country, he sure does miss a lot of crap going on under his nose, maybe he has lived with the shit for so long he can't smell it anymore.....
if it isn't sir Charles Phantom, the notorious Litten.....
also have a back door in their routers, that allows the firmware to be updated remotely, it doesn't need to know the admin password, I know cause I've changed mine but still got updated. whats to say some low paid tech guy didn't "lose" the access to this backdoor? I'm pretty sure other ISP's probably do the same sort of thing with their routers too. set any password you want it doesn't mean they can't get in.
but then all these routers run Linux which we all know is so secure there should be no problem.........
"but business doesn't have a PAC to examine and publish their worst sins."
Business also doesn't have the unlimited budget these projects seem to get.
Double the budget? if I ran a project like that I'd be out on my ear, but these tossers will probably get a new project to screw up or a nice big pay off.
I'm waiting for Karl, maybe Homer if it ever get released.
That way I can sit in my cave claiming to be the greatest ever because I use <Insert type here> Linux.
It isn't wrong to not understand how or why something works. If my car breaks down someone who knows what they are doing fixes it, same with my boiler, anything really. I don't feel the need to learn everything to do something.
It's a good thing that distro's like Ubuntu are out there, but in the same way it's not a bad thing that there are harders one's if that's what floats your boat.
One flavour isn't just better than the other, it depends on what you want to do with it. Stop all this bitching and get on with life.
oh, thats funny. so very very funny. does that mean no damages then since they didn't commit any copyright infringement?
@Pirate or not?
yes you are. please take yourself to the nearest prison for "rehabilitation", failing that hand over $10,000000 in lost revenue.
Seriously, you can't sue someone for making it easier to break the law. All car makers make it easy for me to break the law by speeding, and they get rich out of it too!.
In fact they deliberately make cars that can break the speed limit so they do so knowingly. They know people will use their product to break the law. better sue them.
hmmm... who wants to come in on the class action? when TPB lose, we can site it as precedent!
the government get someone to moan about not having welsh on the ID card, then people start moaning about it missing their language too.
If the people want their language on the card they MUST want the card.
large cable is indeed made out of copper, and yes it is very heavy. I used to work for an electrical wholesaler we had massive drums of the stuff, stored outside.....the pikies even nicked deisel out of our lorries!
Most cable is actually priced off of the price of copper.
why the feck do they need that? a telly I can sort of understand but an ipod?
expense's are for things that they don't have at their second home right? they can buy an ipod themselves and then take it with them!
Money grabbing bastards!
Paris because even she doesn't get screwed as much as the electorate in the country.
"You've got no evidence"
that isn't no....
"Meaning the pirates, of course, not the politicians."
hey, lets not get too hasty here......
Can't port forward?
"apart from SKY's stupid naff little modem/router which can't port forward(!)," I have a version 1 router and happily forward ports on it......
£5 to get in to Wales?
they should change it round. make it a fiver to leave. they'd rake it in!
payg phones are subsidised too
not as heavily granted, but they are. You want to buy a newish phone contract free then you are looking at a couple of hundred quid, the same phone on contract is free but you pay for it on the (24) monthly fees. Payg phone costs more but still not the same as sim free. thats why they are locked to the network.
When that nice new shiny phone is "free" they should look at why. buy the phone off contract, get a good sim only deal and see how much you spend over the next 2 years. I bet it's less to buy the phone up front.
That said the sim only "deals" seem to be going up in price as well now they are becoming more popular.
skull and cross bones 'cause all networks are pirates!
There are plenty of car companies that buy cars, do things to them and then sell them on, without the original makers permission.
If this was Microsoft doing this, for instance if the only mouse and keyboard that would work with windows are microsoft ones; then the world would be up in arms and they would be fined a gazillion dollars. Because it's apple it must be ok.
just wait for the lawsuit to fail, then ask for costs, taking money from the very band they had given money to. That'll piss 'em off more!
