Comment I check the scored on Virus Bulliten and... (Score 1) 896

I check the scored on Virus Bulletin and AV Comparitives to get the best available. I have used Avast! for years with great success, and recently started using Microsoft Security Essentials, both of which are VB100 rated. I like the small footprint of the new MS offering, and the fact that it has such a high detection and low false-positive rating. So far so good, even on my in-laws' laptop.

Comment Re:Piratenpartei got 2.0% in german elections (Score 1) 173

There are three other parties in Germany that share those aims you listed (free democrats, green party and left party).

And all but the left party (which didn't existed in that incarnation then) had pretty much forgotten about this. Remember wire taping (1996, FDP), "Otto Katalog I + II" (2001+2002, Grüne), just to name two examples? Of course, it might be coincidence that both of them discovered their civil rights roots about the same time the PIRATEN were formed. But, honestly, I doubt it.
