Gates Halo

Another Bill

Billy Gates is probably willing to sacrifice his work for charity and share his knowledge of the free and open inter.NET for the Good of the country and the world in general (and his lovechild in particular). I don't think he'll let this Window of opportunity pass by.

What document?

I think al-Qaeda can have a small party tonight, for another victory over the western world, the UK in particular.

Sony Ericsson K660i internet phone

No Sony for me anymore!

I had a K600, but I really didn't like it for several reasons. Battery life was really bad, having to recharge it every two or three days. Now I have a Nokia 6021 which lasts for about nine days. Then the buttons were too tiny. You had to use a nail to be sure to push the right button. Third is those two (-) buttons on top, which change function, and are very confusing. I ended up phoning people when I wanted to return to a previous screen etc. Last, my phone shut down about every day once, without any notice. So the power was off, but I didn't know. No Sony for me anymore!

Honeypot

Is there some way to install a honeypot? So several computers that download legal stuff, hoping the owners are wrongfully accused of downloading illegal stuff. All downloaded files should be kept, including logs, and after been shutdown, the ISP can be sued.

The EU has to approve

This development is very promising, and I hope it will make a difference. One thing though, it seems the EU still has to approve this law. And Microsoft can lobby and object once again.
