Pleasure Island / Garden Festival '84 site

The festival site still site's there empty and as yet unused since the fail pleasure island development. Some intrepid explores have recently been round the site just out side Liverpool city centre, and posted the photographs of what they found.

The Way It should be

There is great bit about how the MAPI should be behaving but isn't, so if you happen to work for them why don't you go read this, and you will see why some people are making money and you are thinking about selling that 37th home in Iraq that you just can use any more.

Music industry tries to hijack serious crime legislation in Europe

When the UK Presidency suggested to the EU that telecoms service providers and ISPs should be forced to retain information about the telephone calls you make and the sites you visit, they stated that it was an essential “balance” struck between liberty and security: a grave compromise necessitated by the threat of terrorism and serious crime.

We don’t remember them mentioning “and might help the recording industry fish for file-sharing networks, DRM workarounds, and spurious patent infringers”.

The newly-formed Creative and Media Business Alliance (CMBA), made up of companies such as Sony BMG, Disney, EMI, IFPI, MPA and Universal Music International, this week expressed an interest in communications traffic data so that they can more easily prosecute “intellectual property infringements”.

Thanks to a combination of two fast-tracked EU directives, they may just get their wish: and allow a UK plan to limit civil liberties to turn into a privacy-invading free-for-all by the entertainment lobby.

Ok, So it Irate email time again, get those typeing and let hem know what you think of this over the top legislation.

Time to make use of the most excelent web tool, dont let them get away with it, Make your voices heard!

I want one!

The Hard Drive Coffee Table top is an original 26" diameter hard drive platter from an early storage device (circa 1970). The center hub of the platter is solid aluminum. The custom-created pedestal is also solid aluminum; a cylinder measuring 5.9" in diameter and 18.5" in length. It has a machined top and bottom to fit into the hard drive hub and base, respectively. The base is a solid aluminum 12" diameter, 1.75" high round obtained from a now-defunct government laboratory. Four bolts are screwed into tapped holes in the pedestal in order to secure the hard drive platter and the pedestal is press-fit into the base. It is covered with standard 1/4" table glass. The completed design measures 19.5" high and weighs 64 pounds.
I want one! This one however is nto for sale, but I would love to know where I can get Hd that size to build my own, I am very doubt full I will find one, :(

Sony’s Web-Based Uninstaller Opens a Big Security Hole; Sony to Recall Discs

Over the weekend a Finnish researcher named Muzzy noticed a potential vulnerability in the web-based uninstaller that Sony offers to users who want to remove the First4Internet XCP copy protection software. We took a detailed look at the software and discovered that it is indeed possible for an attacker to exploit this weakness. For affected users, this represents a far greater security risk than even the original Sony rootkit.

The consequences of the flaw are severe. It allows any web page you visit to download, install, and run any code it likes on your computer. Any web page can seize control of your computer; then it can do anything it likes. That’s about as serious as a security flaw can get.

Right, well what more needs to be said really, sony's fucked up big time. So let them know, dont bother wrighting to them, just dont buy their crap any more they will soon get the message.

Under a rock?

Many prominent geeks are now vowing never to buy DRM crippled crap any more, So why not join them, Only don't publish it on your blog where it will only be read by fellow geeks who are going to agree with you any way, because only they truly know what is being lost, but tell you friends and why not tell the RIAA or MPAA how you are fed up of this crap.

Or how you hate being treated like a criminal yet you are the one who is actual buying there product, After all who would by a crappy crippled product that they can steal for freely, and do a million and one things with it.

It just makes no sense, then don't deserver to make a profit never mind have a job!

Times A Changing

Greenwich Mean Time would become an "irrelevance" if proposals to redefine how time is measured are accepted, an historian at the Royal Observatory Greenwich, UK, has warned.

This comes down to one thing and one thing only, Yanks hate the fact that the UK is still the center of all time, and would rather fuck the world over than do a bit of work once a year.

Tehran ‘bounty’ for attack on Israel

IRAN has promised a reward of $10,000 (£5,600) to Islamic Jihad if the militant group launches rockets from the West Bank towards Tel Aviv, a senior Palestinian intelligence official said last week.

Speaking in his Ramallah office, the official produced a fat wad of $100 notes which he said had been confiscated from a pro-Iranian Islamic Jihad activist.

Wel reallyll what do people expect, they did say they wanted to wipe Israele off the map...

McDonald's reaches deal to sell organic coffee in New England

The world's largest fast-food chain announced a deal Thursday with Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc., based in Waterbury, to supply Newman's Own Organics Blend of coffee to the more than 650 McDonald's Inc. restaurants in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and in the Albany, N.Y., region.
Ok So since Super size me McDonald's has had to change or die, I must admit I miss the Big tasty with its 800 calories of fat, but I am sure my good health willl make up for it.

Infact since McDonald's started selling health food I feel no need to eat there what's so ever, Makes you think twice. Was it such a good business idea to go healthy after all?

Could the PS3 really be delayed until 2007?

The PS3 is delayed until 2007, the decision for this came about through the failure of the initial hardware the PS3 Development Team created. Apparently, 300 PS3 Units were created and sent to various software developers to begin creating games for the new system. However, design flaws in the PS3 (Specifically, not enough coolant) caused the systems to overheat and meltdown after moderate
use by the developers.

According to my DM (District Manager), Sony went and fired the entirety of the PS3 Development Team for this flaw. In short, from what I’ve heard, if Sony gained anything from this experience, it’s minor technical knowledge on what the PS3 can handle, but for the most part they were sent to square one.
Smacks of lets hype are new product to me, but what would I know.

Pet Cemetary Sells Out To Developers

In Raleigh, NC, Jerry Rogers has accepted $750,000 and promised to clear the land along Brier Creek of thirty-plus years of pet burials, so American Asset Corp. can build a Hampton Inn. Or should we say a haunted Hampton Inn?

Staff are digging up lovingly inscribed monuments, dogtags, collars, favorite blankies and the kinds of bones puppies aren't supposed to gnaw on, contacting owners when they know where to find them, and hoping the nightmares don't start.

:( I am going to have to go have cry for all the dead little puppys :(

Things that are bad

I found this quite by accident,

The thing's google wont show you.

The term “invisible web” or “deep web” refers to the vast repository of information that search engines and directories don’t have direct access to, like databases at university libraries, sites that require passwords to view, or sites that for some reason don’t want search engines to crawl them. Unlike pages on the visible Web (that is, the Web that you can access from search engines and directories), information in databases is generally inaccessible to the software spiders and crawlers that create search engine indexes.

Lesbians to blame for the ills of the world!

Hollywood – Pat Robertson on Sunday said that Hurricane Katrina was God’s way of expressing its anger at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for its selection of Ellen Degeneres to host this year’s Emmy Awards. “By choosing an avowed lesbian for this national event, these Hollywood elites have clearly invited God’s wrath,” Robertson said on “The 700 Club” on Sunday. “Is it any surprise that the Almighty chose to strike at Miss Degeneres’ hometown?”

BBC Lie's Over Public Response to Petrol Blockade

Large Image

If you click on the image above you will see the front page of the BBC's Online news page.

Fuel protests 'causing no panic'

Is one of the lead stories,

There are no signs of motorists panic-buying at petrol pumps ahead of planned refinery blockades, fuel retailers have told BBC News.

Except for the fact that in Liverpool, There is mass panic buying, long queues petrol rationing, by retailers, limiting the amount you can buy to £20 and ASDA has sold out of petrol in all of its stations in Liverpool.

Why is the BBC misreporting the news? and so blatantly?

There can only be one answer, they have been asked/told by the goverment to play down the fuel protests to try and weeken public support for them.

All I can say is that I am out raged.

I have already made use of this form to contact the BBC about the accurcey of their reporting, I would ask that you please do the same.

You will need this URL
To complain spacificly about this artical.

Bulletproof Fatigues?

The secret is a liquid dip that fortifies thin sheets of Kevlar, rendering them nearly impenetrable. Norman Wagner, a chemical engineer at the University of Delaware, developed the strength-enhancing substance after studying liquids whose viscosity or stiffness loosens up when they are stirred or shaken (latex paint, for instance). He then became interested in other liquids that do just the opposite—becoming more resistant when suddenly disturbed—and started experimenting with ways to exploit that property.

PSP 2 News

Don't update your PSP to 2.0!

Over at the Make Blog, Phillip Torrone warns that the PSP 2.0 is a piece of crippleware that'll prevent you from using any homebrewed mods. Over the next day and week you'll hear about the new PSP 2.0 update from all the usual places, but don't update- really. There are a couple new features, like a web browser, image transfer/wallpaper, some other video and network tweaks -- but it's a yawn. You'll lose all the amazing homebrew playing capability, emulators and cool applications the PSP makers are cranking out -- so don't do it -- it's just not worth it, it removes fun (until the version 2.0 firmware can play homebrew, then it's ok to update).

Saw this on boing boing the other day so thoguth I would point it out, just incase as PSP2's are now starting to ship in the uk.

How badly do you hate spam?

Turns out that Russians hate it an awful lot, so much so that they killed their top spammer, now if only this would happen more often.

Vardan Kushnir, notorious for sending spam to each and every citizen of Russia who appeared to have an e-mail, was found dead in his Moscow apartment on Sunday, Interfax reported Monday. He died after suffering repeated blows to the head.

Microsoft "Genuine Advantage" cracked in 24h

MICROSOFT'S bid to refuse access to updated versions of Windows has been foiled by hackers.

The Vole had demanded that those who wanted Windows updates, other than security improvements, had to download an Active X program that sniffed their operating system to see if their OS had been pirated.

It took about 24 hours for hackers to come up with a solution involving IE script, the hackers claim.

They would. µ

Ok so as usual we all no Microsoft can not do any thing right.

The damage wrought be Hurricane Dennis on BP's massive Thunder Horse platform has not yet been undone. Lying 150 miles southeast of New Orleans, Thunder Horse is still listing heavily with the lower deck reaching the sea surface. However reports suggest engineers are confident it is just a ballast problem that won't jeopardize the $1 billion platform.

Brazil adopts open-source software

The scene is much like any other modern office: an open-plan work space crammed with desks, telephones and computers.

But there's one big difference. The word 'Microsoft' is nowhere in sight.

Instead, computers here now use the Linux operating system. It has many similar functions to Microsoft's Windows - but unlike Windows, it is available for free.

Ofcurse bill has shit is pants and tried to meet with the Brazilian president, but he wont see him, go Brazil!

DUI Defendants Skip Charge By Asking How Test Works

SANFORD - Hundreds of cases involving breath-alcohol tests have been thrown out by Seminole County judges in the past five months because the test's manufacturer will not disclose how the machines work.

All four of Seminole County's criminal judges have been using a standard that if a DUI defendant asks for a key piece of information about how the machine works - its software source code, for instance - and the state cannot provide it, the breath test is rejected, the Orlando Sentinel reported Wednesday.

Ok this sound's great now all we need is for some one to try it in the uk.
