Tomer Gabel's annoying spot on the 'net
Sunday, July 31, 2005
Ever have someone ask you a question a question he could've easily answered by spending two seconds searching Google? If not, there must be something genuinely wrong with you. In any case, this is absolutely brilliant: just send him/her/it the appropriate
link! That way you're bitch-slapping them for being stupid while still being helpful.
Old news but I haven't found the time to address this yet: an Australian citizen was
of copyright infringement for having direct links to downloadable MP3s (he wasn't hosting the files, mind you) on his website. I have a tendency to play devil's advocate in these matters, but in this case I can't understand the decision; merely linking to sites (illegal or otherwise) is, in my eyes, equivalent to saying "I don't employ whores, but if you want there's a pimp right around the corner". It might be morally questionable but it's certainly not in itself illegal.
Also old news but important never-the-less: the
under legal threat
due to its use in a trademark dispute. Apparently the company that lost in said dispute was displeased with the Wayback Machine's involvement and filed a suit. What's really ironic is that they're claiming the Machine as well as lawyers making use of it were
in violation of the DMCA
, because they somehow circumvented the Machine's
mechanism (read more about it in the previous links). Needless to say, that claim is absolutely
. What worries me is that, by the time this lawsuit is thrown out the door, lots of money will have been paid and the non-for-profit Internet Archive organization (which maintains the Wayback Machine) might be irrevocably damaged.
I wrote a
on MobyGames. Go have a look, then find a way and play the game.
I started playing
yesterday and so far it seems to kick a whole lot of ass. I'll post a review when I finish it.
I also found the time to update my
on MobyGames. It currently only contains 10-15 percent of the total amount of games I own, and missing a whole bunch of comments, but I'm getting there.
