Comment Media-stressed! (Score 1) 298

I became very aware of my backlog when I switched apartment a few years back. This combined with ever growing hostility towards the MAFIAA has ended up in me trying to keep a very low rate of gaining new media before my backlog is taken care of.

Of course it's really hard to go cold turkey on new books, magazines, music, TV-shows, computer games so I keep failing all the time but at least I'm trying. But nowadays my media-content I have left more feels like work than fun to go through. For instance I have torrented all of South Park, Blakes 7 and Mystery Science Theater 3000 at one time and, even though they are great shows, they will take ages to go through.

But this is just the way I feel about media, that I have to go through everything I have. A friend of mine has more of a "Look at my great library! I will always have a great book at hand that I haven't already read!" attitude.
. . . I dont understand him at all.

Comment Re:Dance on Piratebay! (Score 1) 159

It might be simple but I still don't understand why the don't just add it in the help-part of the "Edit Comment" page. Just about the only time I ever need to dig up the knowledge of how to manually code links in HTML is when writing slashdot-comments.

I just do it so seldom that I end up having to search for some tutorial. And since I get bored of having to do that every time (while there is a full URLs-section in the help that doesn't address the issue at hand) I just keep posting the links like this instead:
http://slashdot.org/
Amazing, simple, even non standard HTML, that works and is mentioned in the help-section but makes my posts look a bit crap.

Comment Dance on Piratebay! (Score 3, Informative) 159

This is exactly why Mediaafires Firefox-plugin "Piratebay Dancing!" was created:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/mafiaafire-piratebay-dancing/
  Or is there some circumstance here that cripples the plugin?

(And still there is no notes about how to 'properly' link a word with an URL in slashdots help below writing comments)

Comment Somewhat similar european initiative (Score 1) 119

There is an initiative in somewhat the same general direction taking place in Europe right now called ' Internet Activism Infrastructure Organization '
http://iaio.eu/

It's people from the clusters WeRebuild.eu and Telecomix.org that are behind this new initiative.

Promising costs nothing, it's the delivering that kills you.
