This is the type of public software license that I think should be implemented across the globe! Ok, well actually only for anything that I don’t code.
Please do excuse the language, but here is the new license

The guys over at Afrigator recently launched a communication side to Afrigator called Gatorpeeps. Many might argue that it simply a copy of Twitter, but Justin explains their reasoning here. Stii also explains things from his side.
Here is just a short video to help you come to grips with what Gatorpeeps actually is in 60 seconds. Once you have watched and enjoyed, add me on Gatorpeeps!
So far, I am loving what the guys are doing over at Afrigator. Keep up the good work!
So Chrome has not really been heard of since its release a couple of months ago, and Google has decided to create some hype around it again. They have commisioned a few short ads to try and push the browser into a greater share of the market. There are eleven adverts, and here is one that I particularly like:
Simple, yet clever. It show cases some of their features very nicely.
I have been running the Windows 7 64-bit beta for a few months now and am finding it a really nice OS. With it being a beta version it will obviously have a few compatibility issues with certain programs, but surprisingly the list is actually much smaller than what I thought it would be.
In the beginning, firefox or chrome did not work, and I was forced to use IE8 for a while. I could not stand it! It was absolutely horrible, and I decided that I had to change before I broke my pc, or actually killed someone. I was running out of ideas, and then I remembered that I had the flock installer on my computer still. I have been using it for a while now, but my frustration has now grown to a new level of madness.
I decided I had to try to get chrome to work again. I had grown quite comfortable with it when I was on XP, and wanted to return home. That is when I found this little trick to get chrome to work! YAY!
Run Google Chrome on Windows 7 64 bit Version
1. Right Click on Google Chrome Icon
2. Add –in-process-plugins after chrome.exe in Target field.
It should look like this:
I am glad to announce that I am browsing in peace once more.
A bill requiring French ISPs to disconnect people who are caught downloading or sharing illegal content three times has been given approval by Senate. The controversial legislation will mean that illegal file-sharers will receive a warning through email first, then through a letter, and on the third offence, will face disconnection, according to an article by TorrentFreak.
The bill attempts to reduce online piracy by deterring users from illegally file-sharing, and was supported by the French President, Nicolas Sarkozy. Users who are disconnected may have to continue paying for their internet for the duration that they are disconnected, which can be up to a year.
The bill has faced a lot of heat from groups concerned that the new system will wrongly punish people, particularly if their computers are hijacked by hackers or malware. According to an article by the BBC, the legislation is “dangerous, useless, inefficient, and very risky for us citizens”, according to socialist parliamentarian Patrick Bloche.
However, John Kennedy, chairman of the IFPI, stated that the bill was “an effective and proportionate way of tackling online copyright infringement and migrating users to the wide variety of legal music services in France”. The law was passed by Senate with 189 votes for, and 14 against.
