Back when Portugal had ridiculous data limits on international traffic, there was a version of eMule that filtered the traffic. There was even a option to allow a certain amount of international traffic and then stop allowing international transfers. It was tailor made for portuguese people tho. I'm sure in NZ there's a ipfilter.dat for utorrent that only allows inside traffic.

No they didn't. I just invited someone 3 hours ago.

What they did, and has been done since they "enabled" invites was to throttle the amount of people that can join. So only a certain amount of people can join in a certain amount of time. So if they say it's "full" then you just have to try later.

Also the e-mails aren't instant anymore. So I would believe if you get an e-mail you would get a guaranteed invite. But I wouldn't count on that.

+ - Oracle Patent Case Against Google Weakening->

jfruhlinger writes "If Oracle thought that they'd wave their vague Java patents around get licensing money from Google and other vendors in perpetuity, they may have another thing coming. The judge in the case seems skeptical of many of Oracle's claims, and indeed some of the patents at the heart of the suit are being re-examined — and rejected."

+ - Fired IT worker replaces CEO's PPT with porn-> 1

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "52-year-old Walter Powell wanted revenge when he was fired from his position as an IT manager at Baltimore Substance Abuse System Inc.

So, he hacked into their systems — installing keyloggers to steal passwords.

And then, when his CEO was giving a presentation on a 64 inch TV to the board of directors... he replaced the slides with pornographic images of naked women.

Powell has now been given a 2 year suspended sentence, and 100 hours community service.

The moral? Don't piss off your IT staff"
