FAQ / Board Issues / Spamming
« on: June 02, 2008, 10:21:20 pm »
We've been under attack by bots who have created tons of spam accounts for a long time. Over the past few weeks, the trickle has turned into a flood. Something will be done about it eventually, but for now, I'm just reviewing every registration by hand.

There is a tiger someplace! Look out!

You can tell it's late and I'm veeeerrry bored.

Completely Off-Topic / Vets day....
« on: November 10, 2004, 10:21:30 pm »
War is hell. Like how the military is being used at the moment or not, ultimately our military puts up with hell to defend us. Thursday is the day we honor their sacrifice.

Do something nice for a vet you know. And please, please, let us all work for a world in which people don't have to die needlessly in unnecessary or badly planned wars. Our soldiers are willing to die for us. The very least we can do for them is to make sure that if they do die, they have not died in vain.

Anyone who has ever used an iPod, taped TV shows, or made a mixtape for their friend needs to read this! Hollywood is pushing Congress to pass a bill that could make the VCR, CD-Rs, and iPods illegal.

In late 70s, Hollywood tried to make the VCR illegal. Now they're at it again. Back then, Hollywood's lawyers argued that because *some* people might use a VCR to make illegal copies, they had a right to sue *any* business that sold VCRs.

Fortunately for the future of technology, the Supreme Court said that any new technology with "substantial non-infringing uses" was legal and should be allowed to flourish. That wisdom, known as the "Betamax decision" (after VHS's short-lived predecessor) was great news for the economy: dozens of markets sprung up that would otherwise have been smothered by the fear of litigation and liability. And it was good news for Hollywood too: soon they were making billions in the same video rental market they tried to litigate out of existence.

But now Hollywood (and the major record labels) are trying to undo "Betamax" with a new law that would let them sue any business that gave their customers freedom to make legal copies. The music and movie companies claim they only want to ban p2p filesharing software like Kazaa. But legal experts say that dozens of products--even Apple's hugely popular "iPod"--would soon find themselves under the gun. We need to stop this from happening, and the time to act is now.

This legislation is called the INDUCE Act, and it's opposed by the mainstream technology industry (eBay, Google, Intel, Verizon, and Yahoo have all lobbied against it) along with public interest advocates like Public Knowledge and even librarian groups. These companies and organizations are all making their voices heard in Washington, but now it's time that members of Congress hear from the public (you!).

We're organizing a national call-in day. The plan is: Senators who are siding with Hollywood against the public interest will receive a steady stream of phonecalls for as long as it takes. Think of it like a consumers' rights march on Washington that you can do from your home or your desk at work. Hollywood and the record companies have millions of lobbying dollars, but all we have are our numbers. If you think keeping the VCR legal was a good idea, we need you to act now:

And finally, if for some reason you can't participate yourself, please forward this email to friends or coworkers who can.

Thanks for your time, and we hope you'll join this historic and extremely important event.

Polls / Should Vanessa's Official Street Team change their name?

I'm sure most of you got the street team e-mail where they joyfully tell us that they stole our name. What do you think they should do?

Completely Off-Topic / Whohee!
« on: August 01, 2004, 08:15:33 pm »
I just got two phone calls. In the first one, it was someone in my church offering me the organ. It has three divisions, a solo keyboard, and pedals, of course. It was $17,000 new.

The second phone call was from the same people saying they also had a very nice console piano they were getting rid of! It's so much nicer than my current one!

*does a little dance*

That is all.

Polls / Favorite song on the Demo Tape?
« on: November 08, 2003, 02:27:02 pm »
Well, the cat is out of the bag now. The demo tape is out there. I figure, I might as well start a poll for those who have it already.

Personally, I'm torn between Meggie Sue and Faces. Burden is also rather interesting as far as V's stye in general is.

And btw... those who do have the leaked recordings, don't throw them on KaZaA or whatever..... they are rather cold and noisy. We'll have cleaned up versions soon.

Completely Off-Topic / Snoopware?
« on: November 04, 2003, 06:40:13 pm »
Well, we all know about programs like SpyBot and Adaware that remove malware and such. But do any of you have experience with programs that detect and uninstall stuff like keyloggers?

I did a search and I was suprised that this talented person didn't have thread in here already. I was talking to Toni tonight and she was telling me about what she was listening to..... in this case, the album "Songbird."
It's pretty much an album of covers, she said.

She was speaking so highly about it... so I just had to check it out. Some of the stuff just makes you cry.... I'm thinking specifically of her version of Sting's "Fields of Gold" or Cindi Lauper's "Time After Time."

Go ahead and check her out. My copy of Songbird is already on it's way! Whohee!

Too bad she never got the recognition she deserved while she was alive. She died in 1996 of skin cancer before anyone really knew who she was.

As far as I know... her music is really popular in England. With good reason too. Check her out... you won't be disappointed.... and it will make your spine tingle and bring tears to your eyes.
