Lan QoS – going insane
I was doing some lan QoS yesterday evening. Specifically i wanted to mark some packets.
As usual, i wanted to create a policy-map, referencing some class-map, and then set the IP precedence value.
I tried to get this working for like 3 hours.
Video about gas prices and the trophy in the middle east.
rettighedsportalen.dk – a place for all things copyrighted
I was checking piratgruppen.org (A place in favor of sharing things online) the other day, and found that a new site, rettighedsportalen.dk had been started by a former spokesperson of piratgruppen.org.
The site aims to shed some light on immaterial “rights”.
Republicans owning the election so far
This is another great strategic move by the republican party. Let the two democrats fight against each other all they can, while taking focus of John McCain.
Then when the real election cycle begins, they can put credibility behind a claim that the democratic candidates are focusing more on getting elected than the real issues, and they dont have a clear focus on solving the problems that the United States faces.
The proposed legislation for criminalizing internet users has been twarted — This time at least.
But it was a close one:
“The vote was close, with 314 MEPs (Members of the European Parliament) voting in favor of an amendment to scrap what many consider draconian and disproportionate measures to protect copyright over the internet, and 297 voting against the amendment.
Will you explain it this way to your children?
Filesharing: Filesharing as a technology.
Filesharing, as I define it, is a way for people to share files with one and another.
Filesharing programs, are programs that enable people to do so.
The programming instructions which perform the transfer of bits from one computer to another is a technology.
This sums it up quite nicely.
This is exactly what the white house feels about the environment – Devastating
This is what the white house looked like during Earth Hour:
Earth Hour – An hour where alot of citizens around the world turned of their lights to save electricity, and thereby showing their concern for the environment.
I participated, did you?
Another win for the really bad guys, and a loss for the rest of us.
A plane from Copenhagen to Amsterdam, was cancelled yesterday, because of fear of terror.
A group of middle eastern men (all of whom are airline pilots in an Iraqi airline), was the cause of the fear to a Dutch man. One of the middle eastern men, had to use the restrooms, and, like me, you and everybody else, left his luggage (carry-on-bag) with his friends.
Kiss my a*s all of you… The World is going crazy!
America’s war on tourism: airlines to foot the bill for fingerprinting foreigners as the leave the US
Scotland Yard wants DNA samples from 5-year-olds in case they grow up to be criminals; Oyster card records to become part of “war on terror”
Help fight global warming!
Take a look at this little picture helping you, fight the biggest problem facing humanity – global warming:
Net neutrality explained
A link on Digg pointed towards a YouTube video explaining Net neutrality. This is an important subject, not just in the US, but everywhere. The Telco’s might own the pipes, but they shouldnt get to decide what gets to flow through them.
Great summary of what type of man Barack Obama really is.
Reading Marc Andreessen’s blog I came across his endorsement of Barack Obama. He writes of a meeting in early 2007, which basically shapes his opinion about Barack Obama. Without meeting the man, this is the impression I have as well.
How will peace be established when…
How will peace ever be established between the large parts of the muslim world and the west, when young kids are being taught to kill for depicting a god in a way you dont like?
Well, thats exactly what a children show stipulated a few days ago, regarding the now infamous Muhammed drawings.
Lessig08 not going to happen.
So Larry Lessig has decided not to run for congress. The decision comes mainly because of time and fear
it might damage the entire “Change Congress” campaign. I can understand that position. I would very much
like to see a game plan on how this campaign will gain momentum.
Lessig considering congress – I agree
I have given some thought about Larry Lessig’s possible candidacy for congress. I have come to the conclussion that I would agree with it, for the following reasons:
Exposure. Rally the right people. For starters, I believe that by running for congress, Lessig will create some exposure about the corruption in American politics.
Lessig considering congress.
Just noticed that Lessig is considering running for congress this year. I am not quite sure how I feel about this yet. I have great admiration for all his work so far, but i guess i just have a bad feeling about all politicians in the beginning.
Clinton supporter goes Obama
Yesterday I read about a Clinton supporter going Obama. However, it was the way in which she changed her support that was interesting.
She wrote a piece, a great piece to be exact, outlining the reasons why she believed that Clinton should step down, and offer her full support to Obama.
