Boing Boing: EMI wants millions and your IP address in revenge for Beachles

A damn good reason to boycott EMI!  Asshats!

Wonder if anyone has boycottemi.com yet? Yep, looks like EMI owns it. They also own boycott-emi.com, boycottemi.org, boycott-emi.org but boycott-emi.net and boycottemi.net are both open should someone want to go at them.

A comment with a title like “Are you there?” is NOT going to get approved

By , September 8, 2006 6:07 pm

The comment spammers are now using stuff like:

Are you there?…

All the darkness in the world cannot put out the smallest candle. The darker it is, more brightly shines the candle. instead of complaining about the dark search for your candle. Believe me; It exists…

To try to get comments by the spam cops but all of the comments that are made here are either caught by Akismet (which is a WordPress plugin that uses a central database to track and catch spam, cool idea and well apprecated here for sure) or by me as I have to approve all of the comments whether made by friend or foe before they see the light of the cpu on your end.  Wish they would all quit with this crap but somehow someone is making money off of this.

And only a test.  Please ignore.

July 18 was day Technorati quit indexing Technoprimitive.org

By , September 8, 2006 12:36 pm

Obligitory Technorati is still not taking pings from Technoprimitive.org post of the day…

Got to looking at the dates that Technorati is STILL showing as my last post on here and after doing a bit of math:

31 days in august
+
8 days so far in sept
=
39 total august and sept

52 Number of days since Technorati says blog updated

39 total of aug and sept
= leaving
13 in july

31 total number of days in july

13 number of days in july not updated
=
18 july is day Technorati quit accepting update pings from TechnoPrimitive

So I went to the July archive and found that the last thing posted before it quit updating was Russell Shaw: in fight against terrorists, popcorn factories more dangerous than uninspected container ships which was on July 15. The next thing I posted was on the 19 and was wiat-tv-42 so…

No site updates at that time unless it was something done by my host. And still no response or fix by Technorati.

So now back to my regularly unscheduled posting…

Update: Received the expected…

Inside Your Notebook’s Battery: Ordinary AA NiMH Cells

Interesting idea, but the money hungry boys and girls in accounting won’t like it.  Takes the propritary bit out of the power situation.  Can’t have that now… 🙁
