It just seems to get more and more, here is what has been
happening in my life lately.
MPAA vs DeCSS No doubt your up to date on the trial
outcome, what seems to be glossed over is that now the
fight is really begining, 200+ emails on this turning my
computer on this morning (maybee I should check more
often :) lots of activity and a general view that this
outcome would go towards a future solid win for DeCSS (or
the now DeCSS+), as it stands on a technical reading of the
finding your local retailer selling a normal DVD home
system is now trafficing in DeCSS. i.e. no point of
authority to decrypt was establish, any decrypting
web hosting xoom.com have confirmed why they pulled
my site, it seems that 'music industry' pressure has made
them pull off anything to do with MP3's. I have pointed
out that I was showing how to build players not offering
any music/sound files for downloading, waiting for reply
(seems to take a couple of days for them to send anything
ICANN zillions of emails to read to keep up to
date, and hardly any endorsments for me. If you are an At

Sub Well didn't get flipped as planned on the
weekend, need to buy a carton of beer for the crane
people :) Took the family and the preachers family to see
it, generally not met with aproval, seems they were
expecting it to look more like a sub already. Oh well, bit
of time (and some money [arggh thats a longer story]) and
it will look sea worthy. To those who think I will end up
killing myself, don't worry she'll be right mate!
ZX-180 Worked on power up, no smoke/flames :)
forget to tie off the DMA request line so initially had to
hold a finger over the CPU to get video, quickly fixed, my
shiftregister load signal not timed right with new shift
register (a 4014 instead of 74LS165) gotta get better.
EPROM programmer at home is playing dead so this has slowed
it down, but still ticking along.
Life Life?? what life?...
