Date News

Today marks a first for me - both as far as this site is concerned and as far as my personal life is concerned: In a few hours, I'll leave for a 6 week holiday. I've never been on a holiday for so long (the longest was 4 weeks if memory serves right), and you can imagine what missing a whole week due to the flu meant to an already overbooked calendar - I was working my butt off this week and barely managed to pack my bags (planning what to do will have to come in the airplane and once we get there).

I think I set up everything so that I'll have Internet, but at best I'll be posting some stuff to the news forum. Of course you're all invited to participate as well - many eyes see more things and I was bound to miss certain things in recent weeks as the things were getting more and more hectic as the date of my holiday approached.

11/13 You think the MPAA's response to piracy is reasonable? How about shutting down an entire municipal WiFi network because a single user was caught downloading a movie?

Ugh.. got home from my business trip and I fell sick in the airplane. Now you know the drill nowadays with flu symptoms - you'll be masked up and asked to quarantine yourself. So here's me reporting back still weak from my own personal quarantine zone.

Can it be? A legitimate movie streaming site with the backing of major Hollywood studios? Sweden's Voddler promises just that and has attracted a large audience.
