Well, God bless Bruce Jenner. I don't pretend to understand a thing of the situation there, but it's really not my worry.

The republicans simply don't have a viable candidate, or they would concentrate on that instead.

I guess I don't know what you mean by 'viable'.

want to string up Hillary for accepting donations from individuals who run corporations that we don't like

Well, you're being quite harsh on Her Majesty here.
I mean, she was workin' real hard, tryin' to do her job, when all these 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9s just kinda flew around some accounts and stuff. It was all so complex. Who can understand it? Oh, yes: that Vast Right Wing Conspiracy that has been targeting Her Majesty the last 2+ decades.
Dirty, filthy, evil conservatives, picking on Her Majesty!
It's enough to make a loyal subject clutch the pearls and collapse on the fainting couch!

Cinavia HAS been cracked.

(Not that it really matters to me, as none of my playback hardware pays any attention to it: not my TVs, not my OpenELEC boxes, not my surround-sound receiver. Maybe the Blu-ray players care about it, but they mostly gather dust while the OpenELEC boxes stream from a media server.)

Comment: CloudFlare *threatened* to disconnect the proxy (Score 0) 106

If CloudFlare is so concerned about it's other customers, it would have just disconnected the proxy's services and applied to have the blockade removed, not "threatened" to disconnect the proxy.

Any reputable cloud provider would disconnect any of their customers deemed to be hosting illegal content.

But no, they're going to strand their other customers rather than strike down the one customer that is actually causing the problem in order to score "political points" about ISP responsibility.

Feh. Whether you feel that "piracy" is wrong or not, it's clear that if the legal system is mandating the blockade of one of your customer's services, you should be getting rid of that customer, not whinging about how the blockade is affecting your other users.

April 2015 has been a busier month than I'm used to.

I packed up and moved to a new apartment.
