I wrote the following stuff on a local web forum and I have since been told I should repost it here. This is a response to a forum user that’s a fan of the Sword of Truth series of books by Terry Goodkind, and was bemoaning the shittyness of the TV series based on the books. Said series I haven’t yet seen, and thus can only begin to imagine the crapularity thereof. Anyway, onwards. It’s long, so I’ll hide it behind a cut. I’m not totally failing at being sincere, I really did enjoy the first 2 or 3 books. The rest, however, are utter balls.
Everyone who just crashed their car, take a step back.
Not so fast, me!
Stuff.co.nz ran an article on the cause of the tragic death of toddler Nia Glassie.
The headline was “Force killed Nia, says pathologist.”

He is a Bad Bad Man. A funny man, but Bad.
I have a meeting on Wednesday morning at the headquarters of the Recording Industry Association of New Zealand. At this meeting I, in the capacity of an ISP technical rep, will be given a demonstration of the software the NZ rights holders will be using to identify infringement of copyright using peer-to-peer software.
This is hilarious. On many levels.
I intend to assure them that “I take copyright infringement pretty seriously”. This is totally true. On many levels.
