Comment Liability

Interesting to see that after a Blogger was sued over comments posted a blog, there is a federal court ruling that pretty much says that’s not allowed. Something tells me, if a kid clicks on a blog spam link that goes to a porn site, you can still get 40 years in prison. Spam is […]

Criminal Refresh of the F5 Degree

This article (another) made me chuckle. How the heck that’s criminal, rather than just juvenile is beyond me. For those wondering F5 makes a browser reload a webpage. Presumably the intent is to overload the school website. Anyone who knows enough about computers to turn one on would find this quote exceptionally funny. “It’s a […]

Bloggers get ready

There’s going to be a lot of backlash at the blogging community in general thanks to this sicko (Joseph Edward Duncan pretty much detailing his sickness). Just wait until the backlash starts and we get some screwball senator who proposes to require all websites to be registered with law enforcement (the same thing the US […]

Thank you Symantec

I’ve always liked their software, but now I really like them because of their business. This is great. I’ve spoken about this before. This is very important for all computer users.

So he can’t plead guilty to a crime he admits to committing because […]

The Pure Software Act of 2006

A must read article on all the bad software, and how to help users stay away from it. I really hope it goes to the Feds, and we get a law about this. All websites with downloads must be labeled appropriately, and all downloads must warn before such actions take place. Even commercial software should […]

Mozilla Licensing ”Crack down”

I think it’s important to take a moment and address the recent reports of a “crack down” on Merchandise sellers using Mozilla trademarks. Once upon a time (earlier today), Gerv Markham posted an Open Letter copied below for you to read as well. First off. As most who read this website know my only affiliations […]
