Bummer

Well, I tried.

Hi Will,
I don’t plan to sell the will.com domain.
Sorry,
Will

I wonder if that means he would give it to me? 😉

GMail Invites

I have 6 GMail invites to give out. If anyone wants a GMail account, post in the comments below and let me know why you deserve one 😛

Don’t forget to leave a valid email address for me to send the invites to.

A Small War Won

Today the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals (known as the “activist court” by conservatives who get upset when they interpret the law correctly) ruled that Grokster and Streamcast are not liable for the illegal swapping of files on their networks since there are no centrally located servers that house the files. This is a good thing.

Why? Not because I condone the illegal trading of music and other copyrighted material, but because a technology that allows people to communicate and share information has not been shut down. There are plenty of legitimate uses for such a network, and some day, we might just see them take the forefront over the illegitimate uses.

More Free Music

The fine people at the Red Ferret Journal have collected a list of sites that offer free music for download. There are over 1,000,000 songs available – all without a hitch!

So grab your iPod or whatever device you store your MP3’s on and head over to the WikiM.

Feel like reading some heavy material? Check out the next big (or is it little?) thing: Quantum Computing.

What’s that? You like the free stuff? If you are in the US, you paid for the Hubble Space Telescope, so why not take advantage of it and grab some cool Hubble Wallpaper for your desktop. There are some really neat images of Thing In Space.

And this is just too weird to pass up. I’m not entirely sure this is sanctioned by Burger King, but you must check out the Subservient Chicken. Type in some instructions and it will do what you ask. This is just…well, eerie.

The Fun Doesn’t Stop

In continuation of the Free Music theme, I found a link to the 100 Song CD. This CD contains 100 songs, an amazing feat in and of itself. True, they happen to be short songs, but they are by good bands.

You can even download the cover artwork and jewel case inserts to print out.

And in other news, as soon as I figure out how to upgrade to gdlib 2 on my web server without screwing up every site I host, I will have the new picture gallery up and running. Anyone have any suggestions?
