    Not entirely true, because TPB was shut down a few months ago, all their severs taken by the police. The investigation is in progress, but will probably take some time. TPB is now back in Sweden, but won't be touched until the investigation is done, it seems.
    They hope to convict the owners for helping (english legal term?) the distribution of copyrighted material.
    Word on the street has it we essentially blackmailed sweden into it, can anyone confirm or deny?

    Stop clogging my tubes by posting on boards !

    I pay for my personal tubes every month , and I think I deserve clean tubes where I can send an internet trough at least 10 times a day.

    My dump trucks are simply leaking chips and gambling all over my personal tubes, and there are no horses or lottery balls around ANYWHERE to free them up! I've gotta get onto someone about this! Can anyone recommend anyone?

    Not in the bathroom I hope - NO GAMBLING IN THE BATHROOM!!!

    I recommend anyone from alaska, judging by their elected representatives, they're very l33t
    altogether. Maybe they could send an internet to fix the problem.
    No No's:
    fflush (stdin); gets (); void main ();

    I don't know. I think I remember hearing of someone who was waiting a few days for his internet dump trucks to arrive ... I can't wait that long!

    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    At least my internet is ADSL, so I have my own private tubes. Not like all those poor people who have to share tubes (cable users).
