Tvkaistaa syytetään taas laittomaksi

Kuten yleensä, vanhoillis-medioilla on jotain sitä vastaan, että ihmiset nauttivat heidän tuotteista ei-kelvottomassa formaatissa. Tvkaista on muuten palvelu joka pitäisi sisältyä TV-maksuun (.).

Trapped In A Mormon Gulag


“This story is about my personal experiences at a place called The Utah Boys Ranch [home page], which models itself as a “tough-love” prep-school, but while I was there, I witnessed some unbelievable atrocities. It is a Mormon-funded and staffed facility, and religious indoctrination is a fundamental aspect of the school. There was sexual, physical, and emotional abuse, suicide, staff corruption, and escape.”

Ostetaan yhdessä Lex Nokia -vastamainos!

“Leväperäisesti valtuuksia jakeleva Urkintalaki (HE 48/2008) alias Lex Nokia on laajasta kansalaisten ja oikeusoppineiden vastustuksesta huolimatta edennyt eduskuntaan saakka. Eduskunnan palavessa joulutauolta helmikuun alussa on viimeinen tilaisuus saada tämä järjettömyys haudattua. Asia on nostettava tapetille niin, etteivät kansanedustajat enää pääse kiemurtelemaan sen ohi. Tehdään se ostamalla TV-mainos.”

Demonstration against wiretapping law in Helsinki on Feb 5, 2009

Briefly in English: Meeting near the Central Railway Station at 14:30, demonstration to begin outside the Parliament at 15:00.

“Lex Nokia” is a loophole plagued law proposal which, if passed, would allow network owners to spy on header information (from/to fields) in electronic communications in order to stop very loosely defined “misuse”. Eavesdropping on “parts” of unencrypted electronic communication protocols is as much of a bad joke as pretending to be reading only the address part of a non-enveloped postcard.

The bill derives its informal name from Nokia, one of its corporate backers.

I’ve previously used this site as a vehicle for my views on the cancer of middle aged clueless-on-Internet-issues voters and politicians that’s destroying existing preconditions for civil liberties in my country.

Hitler’s subtitles ruined by a cheap font collection CD

Late last year, some custom subtitled versions of a scene in Der Untergang spawned on Youtube. The font CD one and “Banned on Wikipedia” are the only funny ones I found.

Der Untergang (en: Downfall) is of course a master-piece of epic sadness. Those who can’t handle 2+ hours of bunker drama, should at least watch the original English subtitled version of the scene spoofed above.
