Seriously. WHAT THE FLYING FUCK WORLD.

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.

No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.

Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

While I'm waiting for the turkey to cook for another half hour until it needs to be basted again I figure I might as well get my "Holiday Card Post" up and running. Anyone who would like a card from lil ole me, leave all pertinent mailing info in a comment (which will, of course, be screened).

Also, happy turkey day :)

This is a happy end come and give me your hand I'll take your far away.

Otay. So I've been a bit ... absent minded when it comes to LJ lately. HOWEVER - I have purchased for myself a long ethernet cord so I can use Xiomara (otherwise known as the netbook I got for christmas) at work while I'm monitoring the halls. This will greatly increase my online-ability. :)

That being said, I have been swayed by the spastic post of uniformed glee and have decided to submit my application to eliteofthefleet. So you should too. Because I said so. And they have uniforms.
