Dammit, as I was typing that title it came out “fist goatse.” Which I guess already happened.

An off-hand comment and suddenly me and Jonas are working on another weblog.

“Don’t Copy That Floppy” was a short film from 1992 extolling the virtues of not pirating software. Fast-forward ten years and you have Metallica and Madonna speaking out about pirating MP3s.
