Ah, those ruddy sauce code hacking MMX Bandits taking over the news page. Hopefully we can restore some order to it.

The Federal Government has shocked ISP's by passing a bill to compel ISP's to block all P2P traffic. Many users are happy with the move to reduce piracy and protect our children from harm however some express concern over reduction in internet performance as all traffic must pass through filtering points. The public has a right to a safe internet experience without having to learn how to administer complex filtering software. Introducing the filtering at an ISP level will deliver a seamless service for ordinary people....At the same time, we are taking the opportunity to meet the needs of intellectual property owners....'Peer-to-peer' technology is primarily used for copyright infringement, so proactive blocking will not affect legitimate Australian internet users.

It looks like we are all going to die because of our overuse of mobile phones. MG: So we're all going to die? Professor: Yes. MG: So there's no chance you are wrong? Professor: We don't think so, although we did have to make certain assumptions. For example, the growth in mobile phone ownership over the past 25 years has been around 20,000 fold. If we assume the same rate of growth, by 2032 there will be 40 trillion handsets in use on the earth. That could present a serious problem.

Todays timewaster is from Matt with the sidescrolling war game, Commando.

The factuality of this post is questionable so none of it should be taken seriously, April Fool!
