Comment Come work for me! (Score 1) 325

If you're willing to work for $8/hour doing IT work, you're welcome to come do an internship here!

Your main tasks will be:
  • Getting Coffee
  • Testing Code
  • Writing Getters/Setters
  • Working an extra 20 hours per week without pay

Seriously dude, if you're going to be making $8/hour, go work for a grocery store or something. At least there you'll get experience with the public and learn some communication and people skills (which a lot of IT people lack).

Comment As a member of the Pirate Party of Canada... (Score 5, Informative) 394

I'd like to note that the summary is not entirely correct.

We are not saying that people should have the right to copy whatever they like, despite what public opinion might be. Copyright is an important tool for innovation, we just think that it has gone too far (death + 50 years? Come on!). That does not mean that everyone should be allowed to download as much music/movies/etc. as they want. On top of that, we are not saying "phase out patents." There are some members of our forums that are saying that, but it does not reflect the entire Pirate Party's desires.

Other than that, the summary is right.
