My house.
Processor AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Brisbane @ 2.8GHz (224x12.5, 1.425V)
Motherboard Gigabyte sumthin-or-another, it's got an nForce 430
Cooling Dual 120mm case fans front/rear, Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro, Zalman VF-900 on GPU
Memory 2GB G.Skill DDR2 800
Video Card(s) Sapphire X850XT @ 580/600
Storage WD 160 GB SATA hard drive.
Display(s) Hanns G 19" widescreen, 5ms response time, 1440x900
Case Thermaltake Soprano (black with side window).
Audio Device(s) Soundblaster Live! 24 bit (paired with X-530 speakers).
Power Supply ThermalTake 430W TR2
Software XP Home SP2, can't wait for Vista SP1.
A Russian music downloading site/store used to sell music and did not give any money to the actual recording studios artists. And so, the RIAA sued. AllofMP3 changed their ways, was declared legal, and the smug RIAA gave AllofMP3 a pat on the back and sent it on its merry way. What's the news story here? The news story is in what AllofMP3 left behind. When AllofMP3 went on the long journey to becoming legal, what made it illegal spread around to several websites and shady music stores. And so, while the RIAA can claim victory over one site, they really haven't accomplished much at all, other than making software pirates more determined than ever before.

They've been fighting a losing battle since Napster came along. I sure don't see any starving music artists anywhere. Last time I saw MTV's Cribs a rap artist had gold plated sinks. :wtf:

LMAO!!! gold plated sinks -

the one thing that really pisses me off, is that c*nts like bono from U2 & bob geldoff area always bitching about the 3rd world but hey thats ok - at the end of the day they get to go home to their 3mil luxury mansions & drink champaign like it was tomato sauce...

they complain constantly but what the hell do they do asside from complaining

- they make the charities that asked them to 'head' their project pay them for their time

they wont stop complaining about the 3rd world, & we cant stop complaining about all the hidden taxs that we are being charged by the goverment (which is the situation in the UK) taxs are getting higher but our salaries are either getting lower or they stay low or they dont change at all.

but i suppose its easy for bono (U2) or bob geldoff to wake up in the morning, look in the mirrior & say "f**k yes im gonna make under privilledged/lower class people donate their already low rate hard earned cash for the greater good"

I hate people like that, bono & bob geldoff should be shot - even better blinfolded & sent into one of them mine fields that charties are despritely trying to clear. - they'd be of more use that way.

I love how RIAA (remember, that the last "A" sands for America) can somehow bully organisaions from any country, regardless of their laws here. I have no idea what Russian copyright laws are, but the fact is tha US laws don't mean a single thing in Russia.

Anyone read the legal notices at the pirate bay?.. hilarious!

yeah this is a typical american point of view(the riaa's view) that we rule the world......its insain but its a fact that most americans think that america is effectivly the "king of the world" and has the right to set policy for the rest of the world, hell look at our pres, hes the worst of them all......dumbass honestly belives he has the right to tell ppl that dont agree with him that if they dont agree with him they are the enimy........prick......


and they can bully because the rest of the world let them, the UN lets them, they want to keep getting movies and shows from the us as well as other goods, and they acctualy fear that they may loose these if they dont bendover and let the RIAA/MPAA have their way with them..........

blah, rest of the world need to grow some ballz and tell the us/riaa/mpaa to fuck off, watch how fast their stratgy changes......
