ISPs face down Tories on file sharing


Oh thank god..

This makes me happy. For a while there, I was seriously thinking about switching my vote to Tory. (Because of their policy on ID cards, in case you were wondering). Luckily, it didn't take long for them to do something monumentally stupid, and so it's back to the good ol' unelectable LibDems for me! woo!

If whales can communicate by telepathy, why can't humans?


But... it's silly!

The title of this article is "If whales can communicate by telepathy, why can't humans?". The contents of the article should have been "They can't. Don't be silly."

I've got nothing personal against Doc Juan, and it's refreshing to see a smidge of non-IT stuff on the site. But there is so much gullible reporting in the world of IT, that I rely on El Reg to be a bastion of cynicism in an otherwise credulous world.

Or, to put it another way (less poncy), doesn't the Vulture lose the moral authority to take the piss out of Captain Cyborg when this sort of thing is on the front page?
