Treehugger: Is it Art Or an Environmental Statement?

It’s called shelter. The most basic of human needs. While I admire the art in the work/building he is doing, I think admire folks that live that way more.

Get thee away, thou foul stinking instrument of satan! This is so much worse than the plugin odor maskers. I hope they come with warnings for folk that are hyper sensitive to odors.

Laptop Hard Drive Repair Success

By , September 5, 2006 12:01 pm

Just a quick post to say to Steve that this post is being written on a machine using the damaged hard drive. Got the latest and greatest pclos distro and after a fairly short time installing and then a LONG time finding a good ethernet card seems to be working fine. Am upgrading it to the most current software now. So it will come back to you with pclos preloaded. You’ll have to configure some of it but it should work. And the drive seems to be fine now… 😉

Boing Boing: Is it legal to look at the Web in Canada?

Total stupidity.  Teh whole freaking world is going DRM nuts.  Now by using DRM someone (?) is either going to charge all the Canadian schools a fee to use the internet or will kindly LET the poor little kiddies use it under a blanket educational license.  Soon ALL the data are gonna be belonging to someone and everyone will have to pay to see anything and have to use special equipment or software to do so because someone may look at WORDS without paying.

Interesting conclusions.  From what I have read of and by him I would think that yes he could be the guilty party or at least involved.  Way to go Sir Arthur!
