Copyright and You

I've stumbled across this great (long) video about the history of copyright and how it affects us in today world. This is well worth a watch because it explains how we've gotten into this ridiculous part in history where copyright can be extended to infinity but still screw over the copyright holders.

Really all copyright does is help the publishers (think big corporations like Disney etc.) make money and screw over the actual creator of the material.

Tell me what you think!

BTJunkie gone like that.

Well this was unexpected, one of my favorite torrent sites has closed its cyber doors. BTJunkie was a staple of the torrent community for years on end. It rose up from the ashes of Supanova and Mininova (former Torrent search engines).

It's a sad day today boys and girls as we've lost one of our own. Please spread this information as far and as wide as you can!

Fear not though, Wikipedia has a great link detailing some alternatives that could be of use! But please, I do not encourage this kind of thing because it's in a legal grey area. I'm posting this link here so that you can make up your mind about it. After all, you have free will!

Take care out there in the cyber world my friends!

Wow the last few days have been a ride and a half! Supremely busy at work and I've had virtually no time on the home computer to update my blog!

I really hope to get back into posting new updates etc. in the very near future (or as soon as my work projects are done!)

Take it easy folks!

Sorry for the lack of posts over the last few days, I've been busy with some side projects I'm working on. I will post some more infographics this weekend!

Also when anyone has the time, take a look at ACTA (which is like SOPA/PIPA, but worldwide)!
It's really scary stuff and I just want people to be aware of what's happening to our Internet... without our consent!

Now for some handy tips for those who like to exercise!

Here are some great examples of stretches you can perform when preparing for a work-out and also when finishing up a work-out.

It's always good to warm your muscles up before any strenuous activity because without preparing yourself to perform a certain action one can cause some serious harm to your body. It's also handy post-exercise to have 'cool-down' stretches to prevent your muscles from getting too stiff. Stretching is a good way to 'cool-down' as it can aid in removing excess lactic acid (which builds up in your body when performing anaerobic exercise).

Stretching is usually instinctual in most animals, however most people these days just don't seem to perform it that much. Mostly due to our sedentary lifestyles (which I am most certainly guilty of!)

Anyway, check it out!

Hey folks, sorry haven't been posting recently. I'm in the process of moving house so things have been rather busy around here! Rest assured I will be back posting some more informative infographics in the very near future!

I hope to be back posting this afternoon or sometime tomorrow.

Take care out there in cyberspace!

That can't be good...

Mega Upload is gone.
This is kinda worrying what the government can do to any random website if they even so much as suspect there is 'infringing material' present. But how can they be so certain? They don't have to be, they can do what they want.

These will be an interesting next few months/years, I think we may have to fight for our rights to the internet and not bow into any government pressure. We have to make them realize that people power is the only way to run a democracy, not be the lapdogs to powerful corporations.

Anyway, enough ranting. It's been a hectic few days in cyberspace and I just had to get it off my chest. I feel really passionate about these issues and I can only hope that I pass that onto my readers!

More infographics to come!
