The RIAA has won a key victory, with a jury finding that a woman should pay them $220,000 USD for copyright violations. This is the first time such a case has actually gone before a jury, and it most definitely went the RIAA's way. More here and here, thanks everyone. Discussion here in the forums.

Just in case your house/city is infested with giant Bogong moths and you're thinking "hmm, source of free protein", Paul wanted to let you know that they're full of arsenic, despite their nutty taste. Not to mention they're frickin' moths. Thread here too.

TechARP have an editorial about Microsoft extending WinXP's life, while PCMech explain why they downgraded to XP from Vista. In the Windows world, Vista is the current rage. And you can define “rage” in a couple of different ways, in this case. On one hand, “rage” can be defined as what is hip and new. On the other, “rage” can be defined as that white hot hate you feel when it takes 5 boot-ups to get the proper screen resolution under Windows Vista. Haven't heard of that one before. Still using WinXP here.. and even Win2K on some machines.
