Good Riddance

I was very glad to see that the mainstream media took a break from supporting the enemies of their own civilization as they ran stories dedicated to the remembrance of those killed in the Bali Bombings following the long delayed execution of the murderers responsible for the terrorist attack.

Being an advocate of the abolishment of the death penalty myself, I found todays news very confronting as I was made to acknowledge the fact that I was in fact glad these barbarians had finally been martyred for their merciful God*.

*"O those of My servants who have transgressed against your own selves, despair not of God's mercy. God does forgive all sins, for surely He is the most forgiving most merciful one." (39:53)

Say NO to Internet Censorship

The Australian Federal Government is undertaking a $40+ million plan to censor the internet.

They are going ahead with this plan DESPITE experts, both Australian and from overseas criticising the plan. Internet providers and the government's own tests have found that presently available filters are not capable of adequately distinguishing between legal and illegal content and can degrade internet speeds [b]by up to 86 per cent[/b].

Colin Jacobs, chair of the online users' lobby group Electronic Frontiers Australia said: "I'm not exaggerating when I say that this model involves more technical interference in the internet infrastructure than what is attempted in Iran, one of the most repressive and regressive censorship regimes in the world."

Critics of the ISP-level filtering plan say software filters installed by the user on their PC, which are already provided by the government for free at, are more than adequate.

Mark Newton, an engineer at Internode, has heavily criticised the Government and its filtering policy on the Whirlpool broadband community forum, going as far as saying it would enable child abuse.

He said the plan would inevitably result in significant false positives and degrade internet speeds tremendously. Those views were subsequently widely reported by technology media and blogs.

With all due respect to the government, their intentions are well meaning, as they hope to block out child pornography, but this is a waste of money, damaging to the internet and does not respect the right of freedom we have in this country. This filtering system CAN be used to block a lot more in the future, and it could possibly be used to restrict freedom of political expression as is done in China.

The government is being very tight lipped about this. I also cannot recall this ever being mentioned on the list of policies they intended to follow through with that they presented to the Australian people during the election. Please note that the policy states that it is compulsory for ALL Australian ISP's to enable this filtering. It is NOT optional.

They do have the technology to do it, it's just shit technology that can slow internet by up to 86%. We can get around it, and the Government know we can. It's not about that, once they get this through as legislation, it's law, and they'll eventually make the internet filter better. It's also a matter of freedom of thought, speech and practice, and this legislation does not respect that.

The filter will block pro-euthanasia websites, pro-anorexia websites and hardcore pornography/fetish websites as well as child pornography sites, demonstrating how it has the potential to block freedom of political expression in the future. Will I be allowed to post something like this in 10 years? What is even more worrisome is that the Government has been actively repressing and intimidating critics of its legislation (see below).

And by the way guys, the Governments definition of hardcore pornography means anything with penetration in it. They are now trying to ban porn. Now it's personal =_=

"Family First would consider a mandatory ISP-based filtering system that protects children by blocking illegal content like child pornography, but allows adults to opt out of filtering to access material classified R18+ or less," Senator Fielding's spokeswoman said. According to the Broadcasting Services Act 1992, X18+ content includes hardcore pornography, while content that is refused classification includes that which depicts drug use or sexual fetishes. Both are a step above R18+ content, which typically includes adult themes. <---- READ THIS LETTER!
Please. Attend protests, write letters to your MP's. Remember, all petitions are useless. The only way to get your message across is by mailing, (and actually mailing a letter to your local MP), don't send an e-mail, it's useless. Calling your local MP also helps.

Alive and Ranting

Yah, I'm alive, and yeah, no-one reads this. Who gives a fuck. Well, lets be honest, there's only me to give a fuck. But that's all that's important. Because I'm all that's important.

I'm still ruling the Advanced Gaming Network with an iron fist, I'm still working on Urban Warfare (my mod project) and I've begun planning a short story, which I hope will expand to a longer story-ish thing. That'll only happen if I can actually make myself sit down at the computer and not play games though, which is very hard when there's such a delicious choice of games on my computer.

Also planning a computer upgrade when I get the funds, which are hard to come by, but I am saving up. Beware of uber-pwnage by me in a few months or so.

So last of all, just reiterating the point that I rule.

(I rule.)

Internet Censorship? Fuck you.

I'm seeing a lot of articles like these now-a-days. The internet is the last completely un-censored and un-ruled domain. It is the Governments of the world's dream to control it, then they will have full control over the outlet of media and information.

We saw Pakistan take you-tube off, we're seeing China signing deals with Google. Googling 'China Democracy Party' or other anti-Government slogans? You're gonna get fucked.

Recently in Victoria, we saw the drama TV show 'Underbelly,' based on real underworld crimes being ordered not to screen in Victoria.. The problem is these criminals are still being trialled and the courts are worried the screening of the series may effect the juries judgment. But this was a more unique ruling, because 'Underbelly' was also banned from being viewed on the internet. There is no way to police this, thus offering the Government an opportunity to make an outcry, calling for more censorship and Government control over it.

The article above speaks of "allowing companies to snoop on their workers' emails are needed to protect vital electronic infrastructure from terrorist attacks"

Bullshit! This is basically saying that they're worried the terrorists are going to circulate a virus or assault our computers in some other way through our e-mail. I think we all know the unlikelihood of that, and I'd highly doubt the terrorists had funds to create some kind of mega virus which not even the IT security forces of the Coalition could get rid of or stop.

Stay away from my beautiful unblemished internet, Governments. You're wrong, I'm right, now piss off.

Well, not me in particular, more you.
I can't be boring.
I'm awesome.

For the record; I now have 2 official 'Jango Universe fans.'

I haven't been updating because... I'm lazy. Did you know how much effort it takes too keep this site running?! Well, not that much to be honest, but the dedication is huge. Think of all the temptations, I run this website off a computer, there are computer games, internet... computer games...

Speaking of which, I rule.

I have one fan!

Well, after putting the forums up as a way to see how many people read my pieces regularly I've found out that I have one regular reader!!!
Rather than putting me down this has risen my spirits, now I know that no-one reads my pieces and I don't have to worry about censoring my pieces. So thank you to all my non-existent fans for not existing!

Hmmm, what to rant about? I think I'm going to have a short rant about how much crap those aged 16-25 get. Think about it, the vast majority of them have to go to school or university all day, they then have homework, assignments etc. to do *an actual statistic is that Year 12 students are expected to do 3 hours of homework and studying a night, many do even more than that.*
After that many of them have jobs to go to, a large amount work at fast food outlets like "McDonald's" and "Hungry Jacks," at these businesses can work till 10-11PM. For an average working man the day usually ends at 6/7PM, from then on they have time to themselves, for older students, once they get home (at around 4/5PM) they have a large amount of homework/studying to accomplish, some of them go out to work till late at night.
I will concede that average workers are under slightly more stress, they might be raising families and they have bills to pay, but older students have things like their final exams and results to worry about. So, what have I worked out from that? Older students work as much or more than adults, big whoop. What irritates me is that these students are still looked down upon as if they were children, when they lapse in attention they're compared to 4 year olds, they're stared at suspiciously by strangers around them. I think that the older generations need to recognise that those 'little kids' aren't 'slacking' off. Also, please note that I'm not talking about the upper class brats that have everything and don't have jobs, I'm talking about those that are still in school or university and that are working jobs after that. I'm also definitely not talking about myself, I've got it easy as compared to many people I know that genuinely don't have any time at all to themselves apart from some on the week-ends. Most of my friends finish off their day and then rush off to work from 5-11PM 3/4 times a week, they then have to worry about work due the next day.
And NO, I don't have a solution to this, I'm just ranting pointlessly about it. Feel free to make me aware of a solution in the forums, they're there after all.

Jango Universe Forums

I've added another link to the honor list. Presenting the brand new and slightly useful Jango Universe Forums!
Well anyway, this is sort of a way for me to see if I have any viewers and if I don't well, as I stated in my last post I intend to keep posting regardless. You can enjoy the forums, they're there for use, they're pretty much like any other forums with all the necessary areas. I'll start it off by getting a few citizens to sign up but I encourage you all to register with them and use them.

Well, then again, "you all" could just be me so all I have to do is sign up to them. Well, I've already done that in which case I'm finished... So thanks to everyone for signing up if I'm the only viewer of this site... meaning thanks to me... ah, here I go again...
