If you found a good article, story, opinion peice, study or any text-based content that you liked and want to share it with the forum, do it here. Reversely, it makes for a good database to read when you're bored yourself.

Only rule is you have to read that peice yourself before you bring it before the forum.

There is no rule to distinguish between what goes into its own topic versus what goes here. Post as you normaly would. Only advantage of this thread is now you can share multiple finds that wouldn't otherwise have made it to the BBS for fears of "posting too much". As in, you don't have to worry whether something is worthy of a thread anymore. Just dump it here and if anyone wants to read it, he will.

Emphasis is on something informative, special and relevant to the audience here but anything that you judge worthy is acceptable. Please provide a quick (few lines) discription of the article. Your own opinion on the story is encouraged. Comments are too, but have the curtsey to take it to a new thread if you become caught up in the discussion.

Concerning posting manners: avoid pasting the article in full. Consider either to lead on the story with an excerpt or your own discription. Including the title is always a wise option.

example:

Politicians smell votes in Sweden's file-sharing debate (http://www.iht.com/articles/2006/06/18/business/levies.php)

How will this bode on the future of copyright in the digital age? An important step forward in a society emboded in intellectual property or a hiccup for the recording industries to get over?

Sure, but avoid posting exclusively shoutwire articles because if I wanted to read them all, I would have just visited shoutwire myself. Or you can make it a theme of "the selected shoutwire articles". That works also.

Frankly, what's important is the quality. Everything else is just a matter of how organised we want this thread to be.

Oh, that whole thing is so gay. Now everyone is complaining because apparently some American movie... something threatened to do something if we didn't close that site. I mean... it was an illegal site, right? Then what's so bad about closing it? And why the fuck is everybody whining about it? IT WAS ILLEGAL! Whine about the law, sure, but don't fucking whine about closing the site. It's about time the Swedish police does something about it.
So, my point is: Downloading = bad, People = gay.

Anyway, links? Don't have any (in english, and I really don't feel like translating.)

The issue is a tad trickier.

First, onto the legality of the issue, it's important to know that the torrent site itself doesn't contain any copyrighted material. All it does is provide a link to a torrent file which allows the leecher to download the file from those willing to share. At no point does the piratebay contain any copyrighted information on its server. The link is simply for information purposes and a site pointing to a link isn't more responsible for the copyright obuse than a website is responsible for murder if it pointed to someone where to buy a gun. What you do with this information is your own problem. More on how bittorent works here (http://wiki.theppn.org/index.php/BitTorrent_Tutorial) (not the best link but just enough to learn about the p2p concept if you haven't)
I agree it's a loophole but it's important that this loophole remains. You really don't want a society where it's illegal to as much as show something that may be used for malicious purposes.

Second, the content that gets shared is stored on people's computers. There is no way to tell how this content was originally obtained. Part of the content was bought legally and then copied on a computer for convenience purposes. I still have the right back up my music albums on my computer, right?

Third, while obtaining copyright material without permission is illegal in most states by virtue of international copyright agreements, sharing isn't. One is still allowed to lend his CDs to friends and family. And that's exactly what people on torrent networks are doing--sharing.

Now, this all may change.

A lot of powers want to see more restriction against the spread of intellectual property (and they have their reasons) so they pushed forward for new laws aimed specifically to criminalise the sharing of copyrighted material. Americans are one country where it's illegal, following a lot of pressure and arm-twisting by the RIAA. Germany is another.
In Canada in contrast, sharing copyrighted material is akin to photocopying library books. Scandinavia, I think, has it the same I think (why else would they base their servers in Sweden?)

What's important is we don't let these big Lobies get away with pushing their own agenda. We don't want to see that the digital age was shaped and bent to fit the interestes exclusively of those who own the copyright agreements. It's important that the pirates, the consumers, the users of the content have their own say.

And that's why i'm happy to learn that the recent protests just might have caught the attention of politicians who are always eager to gain few votes by playing a contested hand. Perhaps it will give the end-users a little leverage.

On the subject of downloading, I think more people should use it as a protest against the fucking stupid price of music. The average CD costs about £12 here ($25 I think) which is terrible. What's even worse is that the record companies get most of the money from that sell. Even legal downloading is stupidly over priced, 99p a fucking track?

Seriously, this get's me so angry

HornyPope: I know, they're just "sharing" and it's not really illegal to link to it and blah blah blah. I know you can't make a law that says people can't share music with their friends, and of course you should be able to copy music to your computer, but it's just that... well, they're downloading music for free. They fill their hard drives with thousands of songs that they haven't payed for. They aren't just sharing their music with their friends. They're doing a lot more than that. But I know this is difficult and laws are complicated and all that. So... I don't really know what I want them to do. I guess I just want people to realise that it IS worth paying for music.

It's not that it's not worth the price. The price is high because many people afford it. That is fine. It however, has it's own results. Such as people lose respect for copyrights. I mean come on, filesharing was one of the first things done on the internet. The internet being the first medium in which average people have nearly full control. It's no coincidence that it was used to do provide everyone with what they wanted. Which turns out to be free music and porno.

No one except Lars Ulrich respects the copyright. Almost makes a person proud to use the internet. I wrote an article on it, which now went into the archives, you can read about it here: www.action-online.org/archives.html
The problem with the archives is that they all link to the post that the article was originally posted in. And that is not my fault because I don't own and update that site, no no.

Well what do you care? The record labels turn in record profits with every year. Billions of dollars! What do you care if a portion of it is lost to "piracy"--a figure that btw no two different parties will agree on due to immense disperency in the effects of downloading; some will even claim the benifits of piracy will outweight the cons. Fuck their speeches and crocodile tears how the "piracy hurts their business".

If you don't want to download or share music, don't. But the fact that some people do doesn't give an excuse to RIAA or anyone to step in and hijack the internet for their own purposes.

And prices are way ridiculous.

It's not that simple, Vlad. It wasn't until I got into the business that I get why the price of an album is the way it is. The artist gets a certain percentage, and the label gets a percentage, and then the producers and mixers get their own percentage, and then their managers and managing agencies get percentages of their clients' percentage, and onward. There are more livelihoods on the line than just the labels with that CD price.

Don't forget manufacturing, which is skyrocketing in price as the price of oil goes up.

PETA recently bought 220 shares of CKE so it would have the right to address shareholders on the issue. The activist group has amassed shares in about 25 restaurant, grocery and animal-processing companies in order to persuade them to adopt a humane poultry-slaughter method called "controlled-atmosphere killing" in which chickens are euthanized.

"We are able to use our position as shareholders to get them to listen to us," said Matthew Prescott, manager of PETA's factory-farming campaigns. "It's wonderful that in our first interaction with CKE we could come to an agreement."

I see you have developed a Stephanie obsession as well by how you're looking through her ytmnds.

and yeah, she's a cute kid. I was like "wtf?" when you said that. Still... seeing her without the wig and outfit ruins all my fantasies.

Jesse, I have a favor to ask. I know I've been asking for Adriann noods lately, but I haven't been totally honest with myself. That's not really what I always wanted. I have recently discovered I have a fetish for young skinny oriental boys. So if you can, pm me some pictures of you and your brother shirtless wearing only tighty whities. This took a lot of courage to ask so don't let me down!

Oh, that whole thing is so gay. Now everyone is complaining because apparently some American movie... something threatened to do something if we didn't close that site. I mean... it was an illegal site, right? Then what's so bad about closing it? And why the fuck is everybody whining about it? IT WAS ILLEGAL! Whine about the law, sure, but don't fucking whine about closing the site. It's about time the Swedish police does something about it.
So, my point is: Downloading = bad, People = gay.

Anyway, links? Don't have any (in english, and I really don't feel like translating.)

I had never even heard of that site before I saw it on the news. There are so many other ways to download music and movies other than going to Pirate Bay. Most people I know that download music etc., including myself, use DC++ or Kazaa (Kazaa is gay though) or whatever. Those programs should be a much bigger problem than that stupid site. If people don't wanna stop downloading just start using one of those programs instead. I don't think downloading is bad, at least not when it comes to music. It is a good tool if you wanna check out new bands. If I really like a band, I'll buy their album(s) even if I've already downloaded all their songs. When it comes to movies I can understand that it's illegal, 'cause I wouldn't first download a movie, watch it and then go "hmm.. I might buy this one". That doesn't mean that I don't download movies though. The risk of getting caught is... I don't know how small it is, but I know it's pretty damn small.

I found this part particularly funny:
He added that women who dyed their hair red from another colour were signalling they were looking for a partner, and added: "Even women in a fixed relationship are letting their partners know they are unhappy if they dye their hair red. They are saying that they are looking for something better."

T2: We will ship back your unit in the same box that you ship it to us in.

ME: Really. So no matter what box I send to you, you will return it to me in that very box.. because from what you just told me you have ZERO cardboard in which you could send it back to me in other than my box?

T2: Policy states that we ship it back to you in the box you send to us.

ME: So no matter what, whatever box I send I get back because I'm paying for that box so I must own it, right?

T2: That is correct sir.

ME: 100% you will send me my box and no other?

T2: Yes.

ME: Ok.

ME: How big is your repair center?

T2: Excuse me?

ME: How big is your repair center?

T2: I don't see how that pertains to the situation sir.

ME: Because I am going to send you my broken xbox in the biggest damn box you have ever seen



"The mission is simple; to raise enough money through donations to send the largest box possible... a shipping container.

I want a 40 foot solid steel shipping container with nothing in it but my poor little xbox 360. Although, if I get enough donations, I intend on taking the box on tour across major metropolitan areas, picking up every broken xbox 360.

The Steyr AUG (Armee Universal Gewehr - Universal Army Rifle) had been in development since the late 1960s, as a replacement for venerable but obsolete Stg.58 (FN FAL) battle rifles for Austrian army. It was developed by the Austrian Steyr-Daimler-Puch company (now the Steyr-Mannlicher AG & Co KG) in close conjunction with Austrian Army. The major design is attributed to the three men - Horst Wesp, Karl Wagner and Karl Möser, who developed most of the rifle features. From the Austrian Office of Military Technology the project was supervised by the Colonel Walter Stoll. The new rifle has been adopted by the Austrian Army in 1977, as the Stg.77 (Assault rifle, model of 1977), and production began in 1978. Since then, the AUG gained serious popularity, being adopted by the armed forces of Australia, Austria, New Zealand, Oman, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Ireland and some others. It also was widely purchased by various security and law enforcement agencies worldwide, including the US Coastal Guard. The Steyr AUG can be considered as the most commercially successful bullpup assault rifle to date. Since the 1997, the Steyr-Mannlicher produced an updated version of the AUG, the AUG A2.
In around 2005, Steyr-Mannlicher introduced the most recent version of AUG, the AUG A3. This version is characterized by addition of four Picatinny-type accessory rails - one at the top of the receiver, and three around the barrel, in front of the receiver - at both sides and below it. Therefore there AUG A3 has no standard / integral sighting equipment; instead, any open, telescope or night vision sights can be installed on the upper rail, using appropriate mountings. Lower rail can be used to mount various attachments like tactical front grips, flash-lights, and a specially designed 40mm grenade launcher. Side rails can be used for equipment like laser-aiming devices.

Some said that the AUG rifle was revolutionary in many respects when it first appeared, but this is not true. In fact, the AUG is a clever combination of the various previously known ideas, assembled into one sound, reliable and aesthetically attractive package. Let's look at this a little closer. Bullpup configuration: The Steyr AUG is not a first military bullpup ever devised. In fact, British Enfield EM-2 and Soviet Korobov TKB-408 bullpup assault rifles precede the AUG by some 25-30 years. The French FAMAS bullpup also appeared on the scene at the very same time, as the AUG did. Plastic firearm housing: Another Soviet experimental bullpup design, Korobov TKB-022, had the plastic housing as early as in 1962, and the FAMAS rifle, again, has this same feature at the same time as AUG did. Telescope sight as a standard: The British EM-2 bullpup rifle of late 1940s, as well as the experimental Canadian FN FAL prototypes of early 1950s, also featured a low-magnification telescope sights as their prime sighting equipment. A modular design: First systems, consisting of various firearms based on the same receiver and action (automatic rifle, light machine gun, carbine) were originally developed in 1920s in France by Rossignol and in Soviet Russia by Fedorov. Considering all said above, one must agree that the AUG was a logical development of various well known ideas, and a really successful one.

In general, the AUG is known for good ergonomics, decent accuracy and a good reliability.

Technical description.
The Steyr AUG is a gas operated, magazine fed, selective fire rifle of bullpup layout.

AUG is built around the aluminium casting receiver, with steel reinforcement inserts. One such insert is used to provide the locking to the removable barrels and the rotating bolt, thus relieving the receiver from most of the firing stress. Other inserts are used as a bearings for the bolt carrier guide rods.

The AUG uses a short piston stroke, gas operated action, with the gas piston mounted inside the compact gas block, which is fixed to the barrel. The gas cylinder is offset to the right from the barrel. Gas piston has its own return spring, contained inside the gas block. The gas system features a three positions gas regulator, which allows for two open positions (for normal and fouled conditions) and one closed position (for launching the rifle grenades). The gas block also contains a barrel fix / release lock and a front grip hinge. Each barrel has eight lugs, that lock into the steel insert in the receiver, and there's four basic barrel patterns for the AUG: standard rifle barrel is 508 mm (~20 in) long. "Compact" or "Submachine gun" barrel is 350 mm (13.8 in) long, "Carbine" barrel is 407 mm (16 in) long, and the heavy / LMG (light machine gun) barrel is 621 mm (24.4 in) long. On each rifle barrels can be exchanged in the matter of seconds. Each barrel is fitted with the flash hider, and the heavy 621 mm barrel also is fitted with lightweight folding bipods. There's no bayonet lug on Austrian service rifles, but it can be installed if required.

Barrel replacement procedure, as noted above, takes only few seconds (assuming that the shooter has the spare barrel handy). To remove the barrel, one must take off the magazine, and clear the rifle by operating the cocking handle. Then, grasp the barrel by the front grip, push the barrel retaining button at the gas block, and rotate the barrel and pull it out of the rifle. To install a new barrel, simply push the barrel down into the front of the receiver all the way and then rotate it until it locks. The rifle now is ready to be loaded and fired.

The bolt system consists of the bolt carrier, which has two large hollow guide rods, attached to its forward part. The left rod also serves as a link to the charging handle, and the right rod serves as the action rod, which transmits the impulse from the gas piston to the bolt carrier. The rotating bolt has 7 locking lugs, claw extractor and a plunger-type spring loaded ejector. Standard bolt has its extractor on the right side, to facilitate right-side ejection, but the left-side bolts (with mirrored positions of extractor and ejector) are available for those who need left-side ejection. The two return springs are located behind the bolt carrier, around the two string guide rods, that are located inside the bolt carrier guide rods. The cocking handle is located at the left side of the gun and normally does not reciprocate when gun is fired, but it can be solidly engaged to the bolt group if required by depressing the small button on the charging handle. On the latest AUG A2 variant, the charging handle was made folding up and of slightly different shape. The AUG action features a bolt stop device, that holds the bolt group open after the last round of ammunition from the magazine is fired. To release the bolt after the magazine replacement, one must pull the charging handle.

The hammer unit is made as a separate assembly and almost entirely of plastic (including the hammer itself). Only springs and pins are steel. The hammer unit is located in the butt and is linked to the sliding trigger by the dual trigger bars. The safety is of the cross-bolt, push-button type and located above the pistol grip. There's no separate fire mode selector on the AUG rifles. Instead, the trigger itself is used to control the mode of fire. Pulling it half the way back will produce single shots, while the full pull will produce automatic fire. The enlarged triggerguard encloses the whole hand and allows the gun to be fired in winter gloves or mittens.

The standard sighting equipment of the Steyr AUG rifle is the 1.5X telescope sight, with aiming reticle made as a circle. This circle is so dimensioned so its visible inner diameter is equal to the visible height of the standing man at 300 meters range. The adjustment knobs on the sight are used only for zeroing. The sight housing, which is integral to the receiver on the AUG A1 models, also features an emergency backup iron sights at the top of the telescope sight housing. Some early production AUG rifles of A1 pattern were fitted with receivers that had an integral scope mounts. On the AUG A2 models, the standard scope mount can be quickly removed and replaced by the Picatinny-type mounting rail.

I haven't watched the video yet, but I'm going to assume I have seen much worse on the interbutts.

No problem! I'm having a hard time merging this with the zombie-robot-rapist-whatever thing though.
I just figured decaying zombies with bugs eating their flesh is pretty standard amongst them. Eh, doesn't seem like a feature worth noting.

The link with the penises (penii?) wasn't that bad until I saw a picture of a spider. Spiders creep me the HELL out, they are so scary looking. :( :( :(

That's a pretty fun game, but I got a "GAME OVER" and it makes you start the entire game all over again! What the fuck is that shit? I got far too; see, if they just let you continue where you left off, then I would have kept playing, but nooooooooooooooo......

Yeah, I found that pretty annoying. But I think the cuteness and explosion of colour makes up for it quite well =]

I've been watching this TV show named Breaking Bad lately. I like it. Anyway during some escape scene suddenly this horrible latino guitar music starts blasting, and I immeidiately knew I must have it.

There it is. It's awful yet I can't stop listening to it.

I made a super duper awesome thread about them a while ago that everyone ignored. They're Mexican, but their main fanbase is from Ireland apparently.

What's so awful about it? They sounds great. Nothing to be ashamed about.
