No Actually Thomas that is Brilliant
You see if they patent EVERYTHING then the advancement of humanity stops for .... 25 years. And then no more patents!
Unless of course we then start seeing infinite patent extension creep like we do with copy right. :/
Purchasing and downloading a single game on steam/battle.net/psn etc can eat 15GB+ of quota per person. Add wow/ffxi and youtube into the mix and we were easily exceeding the top levels of the available quota each month in our house hold with four people with no problems and that was 2 years ago.
And that is all legitimate traffic. Please don't just assume that people with large quotas are automatically pirates who should be investigated, it is like preemptively handing out speeding tickets to people with cars that can go faster than 110 kmp/h
Lets not forget that the techniques used are at best imprecise, laser printers have been handed DMCA take down notices for downloading pirated movies..... http://www.scribd.com/doc/28686586/Why-My-Printer-Received-a-DMCA-Takedown-Notice
One thing you may not be aware of, in the NT and WA simple possession of RC material is a serious crime, even if you import it or download it illegally. All RC material is treated with the same level of seriousness.
The result of this is your copy of Mortal Combat or US version of Left 4 Dead 2 will have you dragged through the courts with the same severity as if you had snuff rape/murder videos or child pornography.
This madness has to stop.
I had to buy an intel chipset lately...
And that was the first time in a long time I've had flash backs to the old 486 days.
"When populating all four banks of memory only single sided dimms are supported. Double sided dimms are supported when two banks or less are in use"
.... I'd like you to find some single sided 2gb or higher dimms in Perth Australia :( so much for the 8gb of Kingmax ram I bought with the board....
