st1d writes to tell us that Wikileaks has put out a call for help. However, instead of just asking for money, they have also suggested technical and legal avenues for support. In the site's short life, Wikileaks has been at the center of many breaking scandals and investigations. "Wikileaks is currently overloaded by readers. This is a regular difficulty that can only be resolved by deploying additional resources. If you support our mission, you can help us by integrating new hardware into our project infrastructure or developing software for the project. Become patron of a WikiLeaks server or other parts of our technology, adding more pillars to the stability and balance of the WikiLeaks platform. Servers come trouble-free and legally fortified, software is uniquely challenging. If you can provide rackspace, power and an uplink, or a dedicated server or storage space, for at least 12 months, or software development work for WikiLeaks, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org."
BrokenSegue writes "Famous ruby hacker why the lucky stiff has deleted many of his popular websites including his artsy guide to ruby Why's (poignant) Guide to Ruby and many of his code repositories. _why was known for emphasizing the idea of code as art. It is unclear why he did this or whether he will back. One of his last posts to twitter was "programming is rather thankless. u see your works become replaced by superior ones in a year. unable to run at all in a few more." His contribution to the ruby community was great and it will be missed if he does not return."
bruce_the_loon writes "They have blamed viruses. They have blamed neighbors. They have accused police of planting it. In rare cases, they have admitted downloading it. This is the first time someone has accused a cat of downloading child porn onto their computer. This seems like a defense almost too stupid to be made up."
There's a gameplay video of Conviction - it certainly doesn't remind me of the old games, but it still looks like a good game. I don't think Double Agent is a bad game - but the horribly buggy PC version ruined it for me.
I doubt this'll benefit anybody (and neither that it'll end well for the anti-RIAA party).
