I wouldn't say no to a slab myself, preferably VB.

There's good crack to be had in some of the pubs in Ireland.

Good work, nazis.
You guys wouldn't be the same people who would tell others to 'go look it up on google', would you?

Go look it up on astalavista:

Alan! or Snaggy: Would you please edit out that post above...that content should not be posted here, is in violation of the DMCA, and in general, sullies our good name as honest hackers (not crackers) and geeks. The last thing I want to see is this place becoming a place for warez fools to hang out.

DMCA?

Oh yes, that silly American law.
Doesn't apply here.

I'm not saying I'm a fan of it - but it's added justification to get this crap off this website...

<nitpick>But it's not posted here, it's only a link that's posted here. Isn't that 2600.org was trying to argue about linking to DeCSS when they got smacked down by the courts?</nitpick>

Oh, and TFD, have you checked out our copyright law lately? It got amended sometime in the last few years, and there's stuff in there now about copyright circumvention devices, or something or other. It's more DMCA like than you might think.

Edit: Here's one government site's interpretation of the new law. In particular:
quote:
Most importantly, linking to pirated or plagiarised material could be 'authorising' copyright infringement. Penalties apply to authorising infringement in the same way that they do to direct copyright infringement.
Of course, that doesn't mean that the wording of the law necessarily supports that, but still...

Yes, I know we have laws about this too, but we don't have some of the extreme sillyness the US law has. Give us time, we'll catch up.

On a related note, a guy in the Perth office of the company I was working at a few years ago had a little sideline 'chipping' Playstations. One day the copyright police raided his home, and while searching for playstation stuff, found his large collection of child porn!

Go to jail, go directly to jail, do not pass go, do not collect $200.

You think?

I'd say that posting that link would be illegal under Australian law, by my interpretation (IANAL).

I really don't want to see this place helping out such fools, though. The last thing I want is for this l33t haxx0r to go tell his buddies - "Hey, the folks at geekculture.com can help j00 find kewl warez."

I agree. Besides, if he was too stupid to look it up on google, fsck him. Also, if he's too stupid or lazy to learn html, fsck him. It's not that hard. And all we need is one more website that has garish backgrounds, huge picture files that take an hour to download and worst of all, a blog. Don't encourage idiots.
