Yesterday the people of Sweden elected an anti-immigrant party to seats in the parliament. I’m ashamed of the country I live in.
The TV network CW decided to cancel the TV show Veronica Mars after doing their best to destroy it during the third and last season. This is definately the most stupid thing they did during their first year of existence. TV networks do some stupid things, but this might be one of the biggest mistakes in history.
Give me my Veronica Mars back! Goddamnit!
The first miserable failure published on this blog will be the Movie Industry. They’ve spent years in time and millions of dollars in cost to develop DRM for their new HD-DVD format for high definition video. Unfortunately, if an HD-DVD player can play the content, it will just be a matter of time until someone can circumvent this.
The HD-DVD global encryption key has been discovered and is now irreversibly published on the internet. There is no way to retract this information, due to the nature of the internet. And using this key it is possible to copy the movie from any HD-DVD disc onto the hard drive of a computer.
This bodes well for future generations, as the content available on HD-DVD’s today will still be watchable in the future, even though the players will be obsolete. This is one of the major problems with DRM, and one that is not talked about nearly often enough.
And the key? Well, the Movie Industry would like to think that this is illegal to post. But here it is with a simple rotation encryption: 09 S9 11 02 9Q 74 R3 5O Q8 41 56 P5 63 56 88 P0
When I thought of this name I decided I just had to create a blog for it. It’s just too good to miss out on.
Not really sure what I’m going to blog about though. Maybe about the miserable failures of my old server which I recently put to sleep after a nasty hard drive crash.
Or maybe I should just write about things I think are miserable failures. Or maybe both. Who knows. Come back when I’ve written something and you’ll see.
