Comment "Fgpyyih804423" is not a very strong password (Score 1) 343

FTR "Fgpyyih804423" is not a very strong password seeing as how it has repeating letters and numbers plus the numbers are all tailing. Why not fY6jKL23a5B2 or something that jumbles up letters and numbers and includes mixed cases. Not that it matter for most things anyways, the only passwords I care about anyways are online banking and private torrent sites - cant have someone running my ratio or my checking account through the ringer hehe.

PS3 Jailbreak Now Legal In Spain 113

deek writes "Spanish gamer site have reported that it's now legal to sell the PS3 Jailbreak modchip in Spain (Google translation of Spanish original). According to the article, one reason for the legal ruling is because Sony removed the ability to run GNU/Linux on the console. One can only wonder if Sony will soon rush out a firmware update that will re-enable the OtherOS feature, and appeal the court decision. Oh the irony of that thought. The legal ruling was made on the 13th December (Google translation). There are only 5 days to appeal, starting from that date."
