A 24-year-old member of DOD ("DrinkOrDie"), one of the oldest international piracy groups on the Internet, has been sentenced to 33 months in federal prison for conspiring to violate criminal copyright laws.

AMD breaks 2.0ghz barrier. [FLY@bohellz]
"AMD launched its fastest ever processors today, the Athlon XP processor 2400+ and 2600+, claiming their application performance outshone anything arch-rival Intel had to offer.

About time AMD came out with them, although a bit late. Should be interesting to see the benchmarks against the new p4 chips. Full Article here.

Pour Dado
Extraordinaire premier épisode de Popstars hier sur M6. La chaine offre à tous les banlieusards de la terre un échappatoire annuel, et la cuvée 2002 est assez grandiose. Les highlights d'hier (lala, tu complètes la liste...):
- une nana qui se fait éliminer, essaye de discuter avec le jury: "mais j'ai hyper bien chanté, je le sais. je suis sûre que Lara Fabian elle se voit en moi"
- un dude de 17 ans, bandana sur la tête, qui se contortionne en vomissant un "cassez la voix" pathétique, le jury qui pleure. "Pathétique, on touche le fond là, c'est terrible".
- les jurés, une à peu près normale, un business man sarcastique mais un peu forcé, et le chorégraphe homo "qui a bossé avec Johnny, la troupe de Notre Dame de Paris, et... Elton John". C'est comme si moi je mettais "développement de sites web en papouasie nouvelle guinée" sr mon cv. Elton John il a tellement de thune qu'il se paye un mec à faire des chorégraphie

Enfin, de la grande télé, ou une fois de plus j'ai failli zapper par honte. Mais depuis http://www.m6.fr/M6_statique/html/emissions/operationseduction/new/carnet/carnet1.shtml je suis entrainé.
'N Sync star promises to sing in space

RIAA: Feeling Burn of Ripped CDs
Shipments of CDs dropped 7 percent in the first six months of this year, a fact attributed to an increase in music downloads through file-trading services, according to a report issued Monday by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
It's the same argument the organization made two years ago during its legal scrape with Napster. Back then, however, record sales were still climbing.
[...]
But the industry weathered similar downturns when the disco era came to an end -- portable music devices like the Sony Walkman were introduced, and video arcades were competing for teenagers' limited cash reserves.
But who are they talking about???

Let's say they find out and write to let you know they're not happy about your petition either.
I guess you could expect more from a serious awards organization than an e-mail were they say you should call your petition "I'm a fucking loser, I'm not talented or successful, I don't know shit about the music industry and I need to get a motherfucking life!!"

Donc pour envoyer un mail à qqun et passer le filtre, il faut mettre ce bout de texte dans le message (là ça devient long mon explication, je sais, c'est presque fini) et donc payer la licence Habeas, qui n'en vendra pas aux spammers. Le bout de texte étant protégé par le copyright, si le spammer le met sans avoir payé, il viole un copyright -> procès dans les fesses, et plus de spam.

C'est compliqué, c'est Habeas, et franchement je serais étonné que ça marche.

Lost Voices of Firefighters, Some on the 78th Floor
A lost tape of lost voices, ignored until recently by investigators studying the emergency response on Sept. 11, shows that firefighters climbed far higher into the south tower than practically anyone had realized. At least two men reached the crash zone on the 78th floor, where they went to the aid of grievously injured people trapped in a sprawl of destruction.

Une vidoe excellente de 2advanced
Un mp3 extraordinaire, avec Thierry et Jean Mimi (mais que fera-t-on quand ils vont prendre leur retraite ces deux là???) qui se prennent la tête sur une histoire de places. Ca se passe pendant la mi temps de la finale de la coupe du monde, et c'est sur le blog de Christian.
