However I did start buying portable electronics. n810, Acer aspire, GPS, pocket watch with a penergram on it... . The missing option is I swear to go all the plastic figures are my girlfriends not mine. She has displays with Breyer Horses, D&D minies and dragons.

Here Here, you just reminded me I have a good bottle of scotch at home. If the snowstorm dosn't get me a toast in her memory. On a side note is it just me or was this a horrible year of deaths for geeks. Gary Gygax, Author C. clark, and now Majel Barrett-Roddenberry. They will all be missed. Bounce a graviton particle beam off the main deflector dish Thats the way we do things, lad, we're making shit up as we wish The Klingons and the Romulans pose no threat to us 'Cause if we find we're in a bind we just make some shit up

Submission + - UK Could Ban Pirates from Using the Internet (gizmodo.com)

An anonymous reader writes: The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry wants the UK — and probably everyone else in the planet — to follow France's President Nicolas Sarkozy example and ban everyone who uses the Intertubes to share copyrighted files. The plan will force ISPs to cut service if they catch you downloading copyrighted material three times. A spokesman from the Phonographic Inquisition said that it's the only "real deterrent" to stop people from becoming criminals beyond their preferred option, which probably includes the word "Siberia" and "Gulag." But is it really a good strategy? Would the idea of being banned from the Internet stop you from sharing copyrighted movies and music?
