Oh my god, its getting silly now.

Mass banning of chrimonals from the net what next.

I aggree with the principal I must say, prediters, hackers and other trouble makers.

Ok aggree.

murderers, wife beaters and those that have a violent history I aggree with.

But something as minor as pirating stuff, makes our laws pale in comparison.

Its getting stupid.

At least we have freedom of speech laws in this country, I didn’t know england didn’t really have it as much.

They can go and sit with the terrorists as far as I care.

Would get along as far as I can see.

If they get bombed then well, they can just go.

Ofcause will it happen is another thing, they tried this before aparently.

Glad I don’t live there.

On the other side I see why they may want to, but even if they have checks and stuff on this, who will enforce it all.

And all these tags are bound to put a performance strain on the net as a whole.

How do they put the tags in place, is it putting malware on a system or will the isp spy on users, or do they moniterĀ  those.

If the 3rd approach is what is all, then who would want to sit on their buts waiting for one of those flags to go.

If its the isp, I guess the government will make it worth their while.

If its the spyware approach, if someone hacks those then what.

Anyway, without all the checks needed its a pile anyway.

Blanket cutting of the net?

We don’t even do that.

We hit torrents mainly, those can be avoided, so can p2p shares.

I have private servers which are not covered.

Then you have dropbox and sendspace etc.

Most of these services unless its private shares that is dissapear after a few days anyway.

This is again another way for us to hang on to physical media.

UK plans to ban criminals from the web – Neowin.net

I read this article on the 1st of December and I drafted it to comment on it.

UK plans to ban criminals from the web – Neowin.net.

That is the name of the article. I think this is a bad idea. The reason is because people can be mistaken criminals. Just because you beat someone up, doesn’t necessarily mean yo9u’re a bad person that should be kicked off the web. If you’re a predator, then your Internet Privlages should go because you are a risk to hurt people. We have to look at the situation and make a decision based on the type of crime. You have to have boundries that are closely followed. Comment on this one if you wish.

So you would have thought they would have learned but guess not

Hi all.

I was going to write some small article on how the industry seems to have gotten slightly better but guess I have to rant first.

Again, people are trying to stop streaming companies.

I aggree with the principal, but we are still not fully active with the infrastructure yet.

Youtube does have copywrites and stuff on their site, the ip thing in the us never happened, surely they know its a lost cause.

I mean streaming is how I buy stuff.

Torrents and file sharing I can understand though really don’t care.

Websites, hmmm maybe.

But streaming, thats nuts.

Also what does that mean to file lockers like dropbox shared folders and maybe password protected web and ftp sites.

The world is going crazy.

Today I looked at a digital store and foundĀ  no advantage on buying the digital or the cd versions of an album.

That is the cd version is expensive but in some chains can drop to as low as 20 bucks maybe even lower.

In digital at least in the place I looked it was about the same.

Tracks cost 2.50 each.

So again they are putting digital looking like the cd business, and its not going to run really.

They are thinking of this all wrong.

The only good thing on that front was that an add of an album said that it had a digital coppy avalible which i didn’t see before so maybe they are trying but not fast enough.

I really hope this doesn’t happen.


On the accessable front, I didn’t notice how much access costs.

Sure if you go the comercial rout even for blind users it costs loads and in a lot of cases you still need jaws, etc.

But, increasingly there are opensource and freeware programs and some shareware that only cost 30 bucks or so.

The most expensive home software I have seen on the net is about 40 bucks sometimes 60 bucks.

Some toolkits are at 600 bucks but only in the extreme case.

There are loads of free resources round the place.

You just need to have a look.

How Expensive is Accessibility? | Karl Groves

I went to a place to get employed. I found some things that didn’t work right in the way I needed to do things. I recommended changes like putting alt text on their buttons so I can better know which ones to be hitting. They said it would take too long and it would cost too much money. I now can understand why, because I read this article entitled: How Expensive is Accessibility? | Karl Groves.. This was quite interesting, and I’m passing it along for people to read. You might find this as interesting as I did.
