...The reports of them shutting up shop have been exaggerated.
It looks like it will be Business as usual for them in the New Year. (well without the "selling OS X" bit that is.)
Reports going around is that they will be "redesigning the site" to remove all mentions of their OSx pre-installing services.
You'll still be able to buy "Hackintoshes" Desktops and Server, from them but without the Mac OS install option... you'll still get the "Rebel EFI" on every box though....
ThePitareBay.org is back on top of the searches.
Looks like the DCMA was against another party and TPB's domain name was in the request by mistake (or something like that) and some bright spark at google flagged PirateBay instead of the party listed in the DCMA request.
..But the getting men back on the moon. would be a slow but good first step.. even to just set up an observatory on the dark side as well as a communication node for future missions past moon's orbit..
But it should be in anything *but* the Aries / Constellation system being developed. It's basically reinventing the wheel.
Buzz has been a proponent of the "Direct V3" system which is basically as close to an "Off-the-Shelf" build that NASA can do safely. Building Rockets using proven technologies from the shuttle program. (basically the booster rockets Fuel Tank and Engines from the shuttle) reconfigured into a "Rocket" configuration with minimal work and development.
It can be built quicker and cheaper than the Constellation / Aries system.
Why spend millions (or a few billions) reinventing the wheel for the Ares components.
The DIRECT plans use the main fuel tank from the Shuttle as the main propulsion body with the shuttles proven rocket engine modules attached to the bottom. It's basically as close to "Off-The-Shelf" building as NASA can do. (no extra R&D costs, just maintenance and improvements costs)
Costs work our cheaper than the Constellation program and get be up and running years quicker.
as for the GO sign.. simple "Go, NoGo for launch?"
But by the time the tellybannies (say Eh oh!) have fired enough rounds to make it useless the APC's will probably have enough time to use their Heavy Machine Gun on them... or called in an airstrike or make a cup of tea and then take them out with a few mortar rounds...
mines the one with the Kevlar inserts and the militarily colours....
Better car analogy is:
IE is the car radio, It might not pick up all the stations or play the sound correctly. But it's so tightly integrated to the car that if you remove or replace it, your brakes might fail, Windscreen wipers will not stop moving, your horn will go off every time you turn left and you're tires will wear out quicker......
... Nokia's radio wave charging and you might have a mobile that you could keep on standby and keep the battery topped up!
I agree with dumping the Colour LCD screen and all the naff stuff like MP3/G playback.
Make sure it's a Quad band or better Mobile and you've a great little emergency mobile!
Have the radio waves trickle charge the battery 24/7 and the Solar panel takes over when there's enough light...

I've 3 Civil court appearances
All 3 were to do with reclaiming from Credit card agency's for the charging of "Overdraft fee's"
In ALL 3 occasions the Credit card company Failed to show up at court and judgment went in my favor I got my court fee's and the overdraft charges awarded to me.
Best 45 mins total in court i've ever had :D
Basic moral : If you ignore the threat THEY WIN!
Since you (AC) are a HUGE coward you'd probably have you're chequebook opened as soon as you read their letter....
Try posting with an ID then people might take you seriously.

DO NOT DO what the AC suggested.
If you Ignore the letters the all ACS have to do is to get a trial date. They turn up, you don't, they win by default and no not have to give any evidence! All you get is a huge bill backed up by the County courts.
best thing to do is:
When you get the first letter, reply with a letter stating that the allegations are false, that you have NEVER downloaded or even heard of the title in question and you are willing to go to court to defend yourself.
You will receive a second more strongly worded letter.
Reply like the first letter.
NEVER ADMIT to anything! DENY everything. it's up to them to prove on the balance of evidence that you broke the law since this is a Civil case.
After 2 or 3 letters they will give up. They do not want it to go to court if the other party is willing to fight!
You never told the BEST bit....
If you sign up now you can enter a draw for a lifetimes subscription to the Aforementioned Magazine. :D
And NO i'm not posting the link... 'cause i want to win it.... :P
mine is the grubby MacIntosh with some "reading material" in the pocket....
... Is a gravely voice over....
"In the world if I.T. their are 2 different and separate organizations.
The I.T. Department who investigate and solve serious Network issues.
And the managers who appose them...
These are their stories....."
Mine is the judges robe with the black hankie in the pocket....
....Gmail... That's why!
--Hands up who's got a Gmail account?
--Keep them up if you pick up your ISP's mail via Gmail
--Keep your hands up if you have searched for a torrent using Google
--Keep them up if you believe Google has NOT linked the search you your Gmail account...
that many hands still up... tut! tut!
So now they have your gmail account and ISP name and User login name add to that they have your searches for torrents. I'd not be surprised if they then sell or give the data to the MPAA et all.
Google = the MPAA/RIAA's search engine....
In my area I get Perfect 3.5G signal with "3". But with "T-Mobile" i'm in a signal dead zone, literally!! My house is in the center of a 30m "T-Mobile" Black spot where i get Zero signal! (My area does not even get full 2G coverage from "T-Mobile"!!
So when they combine networks will i loose "3" or gain "T-Mobile"??
...part of the BofH's master plan...
He's actually been writing one a week as usual but...
Get us all worked up about Monthly Episodes then he'll take our wallet (For safe keeping security reasons you understand.)then invite us in to the Tape Safe to see all the hidden stored Episodes....
"Ok" the PFY say's grabbing his coat "His round then?"
"And the next 5 or 6" BOFH say's pulling out the Credit card and a wad of cash...
"Think we'll need to get a bigger safe..?" The PFY muses...
"Well seeing these demographics..." the BofH mutters looking at El Reg's Phorm log files....
"We just might..."
To start... IANAL
Now to continue:
People saying that GPL Section 7 is at fault. Was the intent of that section to stop law this type of law suit by saying If you use patented software you can't legally release all the code as per GPLv2 rules? or am i missing something?
Would it be much of a hassle to set up a firmware upgrade to set the device to use EXT2 file system instead of FAT? That way they could have the "Closed Sourced" current FAT based system or a "clean source" version using GPLv2 compliant code and EXT2 filesystem.... and let the Users decide which they use...
Some people have been getting intermittent service via Imap (like me!) and it's fine for others.
Some have been getting the basic HTML site to work (i've not got ot to work!)
Pain in the neck! was gonna clear out 3k worth of junk emails today!
paris... 'cause when she goes down it's fun!
