L. VeGas writes "For twenty-four hours, Demonoid has been offline.

The popular Dutch news site, nu.nl is reporting that the world's second largest torrent tracker, Demonoid has apprently been shut down by the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA)

This happens just three months after Demonoid moved its servers to Canada under pressure from BREIN, a Dutch anti-piracy organization.

Wonder why> the Demonoid folks thought Canada would be a good safe-haven to begin with."
It's funny.  Laugh.

+ - Creator of MS Word banned from casinos and WSOP

Submitted by

L. VeGas writes "Richard Brodie, Microsoft employee number 77, creator of Microsoft Word 1.0 and professional poker player, was banned from all Harrah's casinos yesterday for winning at video poker, a game both impossible to cheat and impossible to overcome the house advantage. Since the World Series of Poker is held at the Rio, a Harrah's property, this meant he would be unable to play in the upcoming tournament. Thanks to massive public support, they have relented, and now Brodie will be playing, and I can once again live vicariously throught him."
