Submission + - Poll Suggestion: Where do you live?

tpwch writes: "There have been some debating on slashdot recently regarding us-centric stories and polls, usage of imperial units, etc. How about we settle it once and for all with a poll to see if the visitors to slashdot really are mostly from the U.S. or if the us-readers are in minority with readers from all over the world?

I suggest this poll:

Where do you live?
* Africa
* Antarctica
* Asia
* Australia (and surrounding areas)
* Europe
* North America
* South America
* I'm on the ISS, you insensitive clod!"

Submission + - OiNK UK Raided and Shutdown (torrentfreak.com) 1

An anonymous reader writes: Both British and Dutch police have joined forces in order to arrest those behind the OiNK Bittorrent tracker, a private invite only tracker which facilitated the transfer of illegal music transfers. One wonders whether the result will be a "fuck you" response, similar to that of The Pirate Bay when shut down by Swedish police.

Submission + - OiNK BitTorrent site raided, closed (bbc.co.uk)

Gossi writes: "OiNK, one of the largest invitation only BitTorrent sites on the internet, has been raided by police in the UK and Amsterdam, reports the BBC. From the article — "A 24-year-old man from Middlesbrough was arrested on Tuesday morning. [..] At the same time his employer — a large multi-national company — and his father's home were also raided." Unsurprisingly, the site is now offline."
