Seit Jahren werden ehrliche Käufter von Filmen, Spielen und Musik von der Industrie mit DRM und anderen Kopierschützen gegängelt. Sie lernen es einfach nicht. Aberbei dem, was die Spieleindustrie anscheinend jetzt vor hat, schlägt es wirklich dem Fass den Boden aus:
Sie haben doch ernsthaft vor, den Gebrauchtmarkt durch "Freischaltcodes für bestimmte Funktionen" zu vernichten.Kampfansage gegen Gebrauchtmarkt und Spielverleih
Also mal ehrlich: Die haben doch ein Rad ab! Ich zahl doch nicht 20 Dollar, als EHRLICHER KUNDE, der das Spiel auf dem Gebrauchtmarkt LEGAL erworben hat, um ein Spiel fertig spielen zu können. Glauben die wirklich, dass sie so mehr Geld machen können? Nee, meiner Meinung nach werden die Leute dann doch eher das Zeugs runterladen, anstatt sich von der Industrie gängeln zu lassen *grummel*

|Verschärfung des Sexualstrafrechts
Ich kann nicht glauben, dass sie die Verschärfung des Sexualstrafrechts wirklich umgesetzt haben. Bevor ich umständlich versuche zu erklären, was umgesetzt wurde, hier einige Links:
Es gibt nun den Begriff der "Jugendpornographie" und von "Scheinminderjährigen".http://www.heise.de/newsticker/Strafgesetzbuch-kennt-ab-morgen-den-Begriff-Jugendpornographie--/meldung/118381
(So viele Kommentare wie bei diesem Artikel hab ich selten bei Heise gesehen *g*)
Die Auswirkungen des ganzen werden im folgenden Blog recht gut erläutert erläutert (der Blogger hat zwar meist recht extreme Ansichten, aber wenn er mit seiner Beschreibung des ganzen recht hat, dann ist das echt heftig), ist übrigens schon im Januar geschrieben worden.
Achtung: Sind ein paar Nacktbilder dabei ;)
Ist vielleicht viel zu lesen, geb ich ja zu, aber es lohnt sich meiner Meinung nach...
Und noch ein älterer Link von Spiegel:http://www.spiegel.de/panorama/justiz/0,1518,522396,00.html
Ich find das ganze echt schlimm. Hier werden der Bevölkerung konservativste Regeln aufgezwungen unter dem Deckmantel der Verhinderung von Kinderpornograophie (die natürlich bekämpft werden muss, keine Frage)...

As David Tennant just announced at the NTA awards, he will be leaving Doctor Who after the 2009 Specials. Damn it, I really would have loved to see, that Steven Moffat had done with the Tenth Doctor *grrrr* I can really understand his reasoning, but still...
Well, we will have time to get used to the thought of a new Doctor (and the new one probably already has been cast, I am really curious who it might be....).
BTW: What if the Christmas Special, which is named "The next Doctor" is really about the eleventh doctor? I think, this would be kind of cool - even so I am really crushed right now, because I will miss David A LOT.

How do you awake the commmunity of a roleplay game, that already seems to be in hibernation? Seriously, I am totally out of ideas and have no clue what to do to avert a nearly certain death (if the posting rate continues to decline) of the game - which would be really sad as it is the oldest Stargate online rpg in the German language.

Doctor Who Soundtrack
I am just listening to the Doctor Who Season 3 soundtrack - and wow this is good! I have only listened to a couple of tracks yet, but I especially like
01 All The Strange, Strange Creatures
23 This is Gallifrey- Our Childhood, Our Home
28 Abide With Me
I could listen to them all night, but I think I should go to bed now (it is 1:07 where I am^^). Well... I think I will start 23 again and THEN go to bed *g*
Have a good night.

Oh MacGyver, Held - und große Liebe - meiner Jugend. Ich werde Dich niemals vergessen und wie es aussieht die Welt auch nicht.
Vor wenigen Wochen kam endlich auch in Deutschland die erste Staffel auf DVD raus (ich hab mir natürlich die Limited Edition mit dem Taschenmesser gekauft!) und nun dieser wunderbare Artikel in SPON:http://www.spiegel.de/netzwelt/web/0,1518,583158,00.html
Die Mythbusters Folge (100) hab ich übrigens auch gesehen. Genial!

|Journalism vs Bloggosphere
To be honest, I didn't care much about the conflict between Georgia, South Ossetia and Russia. I just glanced over most articles on news pages. But even then I felt, that the western press was a little bit onesided. Only in one blog I read something more about the conflict and why it started - and more important: why Russia feels to be in the right to aknowledge South Ossetia.
A couple of days ago, the ARD, one of the two big German public service broadcasters, published an interview with Vladimir Putin, the former Russian president. BUT the interesting part is: They only published 10 minutes, even so the whole interview lasted round about half an hour. A few very clever people got hold of the whole interview, translated it from Russian to German and published both, the video and a transcript in the internet. After only a couple of hours the Blogs were in outrage, because after watching the whole thing, it seems the ARD version was heavily censored and manipulated so that the German public opinion would turn even more against evil Russia. In more than 300 posts, a lot of very disappointed people stated their opinion in the official blog of the ARD.
This outrage and pressure persuaded the ARD to broadcast the whole interview - on the WDR (a small, regional subsidiary of ARD), tomorrow AT 6:20 IN THE MORNING and then publish it in written form at www.tagesschau.de.
Honestly: I don't have enough information to build a profound opinion about the Georgia / South Ossetia and Russian conflict and I have no idea, if there is any propaganda of Putin in the interview itself (which was really interesting). At the moment I don't care. And I also don't really wanna know (at the moment), if this "manipulation" of the ARD was really intentional or not (but it probably is). What I DO find interesting, that it isn't that
easy to manipulate news anymore. Yes, we already had bildblog.de and a lot of other interesting blogs who talk about the stuff that is broadcast every day for a long time. But those only reach a small circle of interested people. Most everyday Newswatcher isn't even aware of those blogs. And never in my knowledge did a public broadcaster service broadcaster in Germany do something like that because of the pressure of the bloggesphere.
It is sad, that they will only publish it on 6:20, when nobody is watching on a channel not many people seem to know at all. But this gives a little bit of hope, that not all is lost, that there are people out there who fight for free and unmanipulated information...
You can find the transcript of the interview here:http://www.spiegelfechter.com/wordpress/392/das-interview
and the ADR Blog with the hundreds of comments here:http://blog.tagesschau.de/?p=1380
Unfortunately, both are only in German...

Hab gerade bei Spreeblick einen herrlichen Artikel gefunden:
"Das Internet hat mein Leben zerstört"
Toll geschrieben und irgendwie kann ich mich da auch ein klein wenig wiederfinden ;)

|Doctor Who 4x13 - SPOILERS
After watching the episode half a dozend times, reading tons of reviews (pro AND contra, some very enlightening) and lot's of fanfiction *g* and thinking about it a lot, I think I have finally come to terms with it. Oh, I still hate what RTD did to Donna (and I think I will never forgive him that) and I don't like the Rose thingy, but I think I have finally learned to accept them as what they are.

Doctor Who - No Spoilers
Damn it. The last episode of the fourth season, "Turn left" was so good (not perfect, but really good) and somehow I have got spoiled to hell for the next two, so I really can't wait for the next episode. After watching last week I thought: Hey, don't watch 4x12 until 4x13 is out because then there will be no murderous cliffhanger which will drive you crazy for seven days.
But you know what? I don't think I can wait that long, I don't have enough strength to even wait till tomorrow and can barely resist to read reaction posts. Gaaaaaaaah, why can't I have more self dicipline? *hmpf*

Germany - Turkey 3:2
Yay! Germany won the semi finale and now will play against Russia or Spain in the final.
In the first half-time, the Germans were very weak, but the second one was better. And in the last possible minute Lahm shot the winning goal - really a very beautiful one :)
Now I am really curious: Will I get any sleep tonight (due to the honking cars - yeah, the first ones I already can hear)... what are the Turkish fans gonna do? (For those who don't know: The Turks are the biggest immigrant group in Germany...)

Football European Championship
So it's settled then?
There will be a football match between Germany and Turkey in the semifinal.
Has Germany ever played against Turkey?
Oh boy, this will be fun no matter who wins *lol*

|Football european championship
Just watching the football game (yeah guys, it IS football, I don't care what the non-European countries call it^^) between Germany and Croatia. Oh boy. 0:2 after only 63 minutes. I am not a huge fan of sport events but hey, sometimes even I watch when Germany has a match.
Anyways: I highly doubt they will win this game, but I don't think that is such a big problem as they won the one against Poland. Am I right? Oh, and Switzerland is already out. Poor guys, no summer tale for them...
OK, now they lost. Pity. Now they have to win against Austria. Sorry, salivia_baker
, but in this case I really hope that Austria loses. In the end, even I am a wee bit patriotic *g*

|World of World of Warcraft
Well, I never dared to play World of Warcraft (because I probably wouldn't be able to stop^^) but this video of the "new" expansion pack is really really cool!'Warcraft' Sequel Lets Gamers Play A Character Playing 'Warcraft'
Somehow I am sure, that there actually WOULD be people who wanna play such a game *G*
