Fark held a photoshop contest on Kevin Mitnick's return to the Internet. Fun!

Under a new District Court decision, any copyright holder can force your ISP to turn over your identity simply by claiming you're doing something illegal. Verizon Internet Services were ordered by a judge to divulge the name of a Verizon subscriber to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) because the subscriber allegedly used KaZaA peer-to-peer software to share music online.

Read the EFF's press release here.

Say.. I own copyrights here and there. Now I can track down that one jerk on KaZaA who keeps cutting off my download of "Sukiyaki!"

I'm feeling much better. Thanks to all who emailed me ruthlessly ordering me to heal! I'm a few pounds lighter, but none the worse for wear.

More good news - I've finally got Grey's and my pictures from the January 2600 meeting up right here. I usually hate photos of me, but I'm actually liking how I looked in this set!

That's the page on which I'll keep my most recent set of meeting photos from now on, rather than cluttering up my main photo page, which is getting unwieldy. As I replace the recent ones, I'll throw the coolest past ones onto the main photo page.

I also revised my newbies' guide to the New York City 2600 meetings. Please throw me all your suggestions, and I'll try and make this thing as comprehensive as it can get. Eventually, I hope to have something put together that anyone can point a newbie curious about the NYC 2600 meetings to.

I have so many updates for other areas of my site just sitting around uncompleted, and I will get to them soon, Scouts' Honor. (I was never a scout.)

On the UPL message board, we were commenting on RBCP's webcam. I decided to use my Hollywood-style image hacking and enhancing skills to find out what Arbie's lovely daughter Emily was writing...

Future Empress Emily

RBCP showed this to Emily, and her official response was "That's not really what I was writing. I was doing math." Later that night a Police Chopper hovered above my block for about 20 minutes. (You can read about that in Fina's journal.) Coincidence?

Last but certainly not least.. my pal Murd0c wasted an entire blog entry on how cool Grey and I are. Man, we sure have him foo- I mean, you rock, Murd0c! See you at the next 2600!

Music - Freezepop - "Plastic Stars"
Mood - Better than recently

More sci-fi stuff.. There's a new issue of Tachyon TV out. One of my favorite sci-fi / tv / whatever zines, it's fast becoming my #1 source for any sort of information whatsoever.
