Duelity – the beginning in two parts The Vancover Film School does a really cool visual retelling of creation. The ‘biblical’ version with a science edge. The ‘evolution’ version with a biblical edge. And you can watch them both at the same time!

Tien miljoen snelheidboetes in 2007

Posted on December 14th, 2007 at 12:49 by John Sinteur in category: Nederland is Gek!

[Quote:]

Verkeerscontroles leveren dit jaar een recordaantal van tien miljoen snelheidsboetes op.

[..]

Vooral de trajectcontroles leveren meer boetes op. Vorig jaar waren dat er 1,9 miljoen. Dit jaar stijgt het aantal naar 2,4 miljoen. “Het aantal grove snelheidsovertredingen daalt”, zegt een woordvoerder van het BOVM. “Procentueel stijgt daardoor het aantal kleine snelheidsovertredingen.” De kleine overtredingen betreffen ruim 70 procent van het totaal.

Oftewel het drie kilometer te hard over een lege weg rijden… en ze verwachten niet dat het aantal boetes in 2008 omhoog zal gaan, dus dan snap je gelijk waarom in april de tarieven 20% hoger worden…

Congressman Hollywood: It’s time to revisit the DMCA

Posted on December 14th, 2007 at 9:44 by John Sinteur in category: Indecision 2008, Intellectual Property

[Quote:]

Rep. Howard Berman (D-CA), also known as Congressman Hollywood, is one of the most powerful members of the House when it comes to intellectual property issues, so when he muses aloud about “revisiting” the DMCA, people listen. Unfortunately, Berman wants to reform the DMCA because it doesn’t go far enough, and his ideas sound like they’re ripped right from the pages of the Big Content playbook.

[..]

Berman believes that the DMCA, in particular, needs reforming, but not in the ways that consumers have clamored for. Instead, the congressman wants to look again at the issue of “safe harbor” provisions currently extended to ISPs for infringing content flowing across their networks. He wants to examine the “effectiveness of takedown notices” under the DMCA, and he’d like to take another look at whether filtering technology has advanced to the point where Congress ought to mandate it in certain situations.

If you cannot figure out who to vote for in the next election, because every candidate is working to your disadvantage, remember that there is a saying in poker: If you look around the table and you can’t tell who the sucker is… it’s you.

Users made to jump through hoops for Vista SP1

Posted on December 14th, 2007 at 9:07 by John Sinteur in category: Microsoft

The long-awaited Vista SP1 Release Candidate (RC), where any user running a valid copy of Vista can grab it, said the company. Microsoft first seeded preliminary copies of the service pack to thousands of by-invitation-only testers in September.

“Today we made the SP1 RC available to the public on Microsoft’s Download Center,” a company spokeswoman said. “Because Windows Vista SP1 will be available to hundreds of millions of customers, we want to make sure we get a breadth and depth of customer feedback. By increasing the test base of SP1, this helps customers ensure [there] will be a thoroughly tested product at RTM [release to manufacturing].”

I have confidence in Microsoft. I’m sure their RC is just as good as the final version will be.
