California Rules, P2P Rocks, Metallica sucks even more

Hey everyone, how’s it going? I’m in California right now and I’m having loads of fun… yeah… it feels great to be away from that searing Arizona heat. I’m looking into creating a new message board which looks nicer and has a lot more stuff. Work on the webpage is going to be delayed (as usual =( ) because next semester looks to be a lot of work. Anyway, the main issue here is Napster. As you might already know, it is most probably going to be shut down at midnight on Friday. The issue here is how to keep it going… Well, there are many ways… first of all, there is a service called Napigator that’s available and it lets you connect to other servers. There are also other services like GNutella, ScourExchange and iMesh that allow peer-to-peer connection. The recording industry may have won the battle, but for all purposes, it has lost the war. There is no way it can stop services like GNutella because unlike Napster, GNutella is de-centralized and there is in effect, nothing to shut down. Well… I’m assuming that it’s going to be a while before the idiotic heads of record labels finally understand this. And as for Metallica, I’ve lost all respect for them… their “campaign” against Napster was nothing more than a publicity stunt. And Lars Ulrich can go to hell. Well, anyway, they pretty much destroyed themselves with Load and ReLoad… but oh well… I’m thinking that in a way, shutting Napster down will actually help this new technology… Alright then… time for me to go… cy’all later!

Trouble accessing Message Board

This is with reference to the Message Board. I’ve been having trouble accessing it lately and I wonder if you have as well. It’s probably something to do with their server and hopefully they should have it fixed soon. Well… I’m enjoying my freedom… it is absolutely cool! Heheheheh. Updates… hmmm… I have to see when I get some time… I’ll do SOMETHING. Don’t worry =). Alright then… I’m gonna go and sleep… gotta wake up tomorrow to go somewhere… Cya!

Link to Hypernews Updated

Alright… the link to “HyperNews” has been updated to Marc’s forum. On a question of technicality, Marc’s CSE210 is not”HyperNew”, but rather PHPSlash that he’s using. The link points to that site now. I could change the image file to reflect this change, but I’m too lazy. Anyways, HyperNews has kinda become synonymous with a forum where we post our questions and woes on CS… So even though it’s a misnomer, I guess it’s good enough! Ok you losers from ISG… Don’t you have ANYTHING to write? I have something REALLY cool to write, but I won’t unless you people post something first! >=(. Anyways, I have to go now. Cya

ISG Message Board back up

The Message Board is back up! It happened right after I updated this page. The CSE210 forum is also working. I’ll be leaving the link here as a backup in the event that something happens to Marc’s forum (I doubt anything will happen). You guys, write something on that message board ok? Please?!

ISG Message Board down. New link to Hypernews

The ISG Message Board is down for some reason. I’m not sure why, but I think the entire InsideTheWeb server is down. I don’t know how long it will stay like that… please bear with me. Oh and the CSE210 forum here, is being discontinued. Marc has got a better version up and running… WITHOUT the banner ads!

Good job on the Message Board guys!

Hmmm! The message board seems to be rolling along well! Good job guys! =) The girls have written something… FINALLY… and Deepshika has mysteriously reappeared! The message board is definitely serving it’s purpose so keep writing ok? As for me, I’m going to be in LA and this page is not going to see and updates for a month… But I’ll still be in touch. It’s just that all my webpage building stuff is in AZ. Ok… what’s new on the webpage? Nothing much, just coded in a new JavaScript function that displays a random title image everytime the page is accessed… pretty nifty huh? Ok… Cya next millenium!

Lab, Message Board and Thanksgiving

I finally got that Lab done! And it works and everything! So I thought I’d add some stuff here… Glad to see that the message board is finally working. That post there by Nimish says everything. BUT the women haven’t written anything as yet… Pri, Rini… C’mon! Write something willya??? Okay… on to stuff I’ve added. I’ve got the Programming section kinda working. A UNIX tutorial is up, so try and have a look at it… Don’t expect stuff here for another week or so. It’s thanksgiving next week and I’m off to LA. Woohoo!! Then I have finals in 3 weeks… so I might not put stuff here for a LOOONG time!! Let’s see what happens! Cya’ll later!!
