Comment Just go to another website (Score 1) 686

In most cases the things you're looking for can be found on many sites. If one has too many ads, go to another.

Or in the case of television, throw the bloody thing out of your window. Watching commercials and "what's coming up next" for 15 to 20 minutes per hour really is too much. Interrupting a movie with 30 minutes of crap-o-tainment crossed the line for me.

They could copy-and-change, but that would still be a lot of work. Make sure that would be more work than just doing the assignments.

But the more interesting thing is indeed to write something to analyse the files.
I made something to compare Maya files. That worked quite nicely, but I'm not sure if the students liked it. I know I did though :)

Facebook. If you're going to implement this, let me know. I'm sure we can work something out.
If I find out you implemented this without contacting me, it will be a different story.

I don't want that, but fact is, for example, the USA of 'murica is monitoring overseas bank transfers of Europeans. Thanks to the politicians of course who agreed with that shit. Also there was a band in London that made video clip from the cctv recordings in public spaces. How many more examples do you want?
If you know how to evade this nightmare...
