File Traders to be Executed Next

Okay I'm not being serious. I don't advocate illegal file trading but give me a break.
Thanks to our congress critters selling out as usual to big monied interests you can now go to jail for 3 years for bootlegging movies.
Yep, 3 years!
Making a movie available electronically prior to its release can now result in a three year sentence, thanks to the Family Entertainment and Copyright Act approved Tuesday by the House. The Senate has already passed its own version, and the final bill is expected to be signed by the President.

The bill also calls for three years in cases where a person is caught recording a movie in a theater with a camcorder - and six years for a second offence. It also indemnifies theater operators against all criminal and civil liabilities arising from detaining suspects "in a reasonable manner." (Welcome to movie jail.)

Want to show where you blog from or see other bloggers in your area?
See my sidebar for feedmap.net. I'm feeling kinda lonely. (but that really isn't my exact location - off by about a half mile).

Google Maps

Have you used Google Maps? They now have the ability to switch to satellite and back to maps.
Double click to center or just drag the pointer to move the view. A zoom bar lets you move the view in or out. As you change views the map and satellite stay in sync. Very cool.


My neighborhood. Yeah I can zoom right down to my house. Glad the pool looked good that day.
There's Garces Memorial High with OLPH on the low left, the Panorama bluffs and the Kern River across the top, Greenlawn Cemetery in the middle and the west side of Bakersfield Jr College on the right.

The Real Thing

There are lots of CompuDaves out there. Just do a Google if you want some proof.
And many of them are Daves associated with computing of course. However this is the real thing. Yes I own CompuDave dot com and a few other things with that name. So just because you see somthing signed CompuDave it very well might not be me, but you can email me if you want to know for sure. Any email to any name to the domain mentioned reaches me.
Damn imposters.
