Does piracy justify cracking?

Yes, this person may have had some pirated music on her system. However, I think the real question is, does stealing justify breaking and entering?
The RIAA cracked into this mom’s computer and searched through her files. They didn’t give her any notice, and, quite frankly, it was very illegal. Imho, she has a better case against them then they have against her.


Overgod: great shooter with a stupid name

Slashdot recently ran a review of some of the lesser known holiday season “must have” games. Their conclusion? None of them are that great.
However, buried in the comments, someone gave the name of a nice little freeware game that was too good not to be noticed.

Hello. You are all doubtless here today to learn about ninjas. Unfortunately, the way of the ninja is fraught with hardness-es. These include:

  • Exercise
  • Assassinating people
  • Sneaking around
  • Getting killed multiple times

If any of this appeals to you, you are in the right place. Now, the first most important point: Socks. Some people claim that ninjas don’t care about socks. Those people would be wrong.
The next most important thing to remember is how to become one with the shadows. Fortunately, this is highly overrated. People are very unobservant.

However, all this lecture would be pointless and boring if there was to be no demonstration. Observe as this trained trained ninja infultrates a campsite of hapless Boy Scouts.

[Cut to three guys sitting around a campfire]
[The ninja is slipping up behind #1.]

2: What’s that?! [pointing]
[The ninja grabs #1]
[A brief struggle ensues]
professor: Observe how the skilled ninja goes directly for the sock.
ninja: Behold! I have prevailed over my formally sock wearing foe!
professor: This will conclude our demonstration. Thank you.
