“Steal This Film” – Documentary about file-sharing

"Steal This Film" web-page screenshot
 
A group have made a documentary about file-sharing – no it’s not the usual "file-sharing is bad" and "file-sharing is hurting [insert organization name here]" mumbo-jumbo – and instead, the documentary is actually taking a realistic look at the situation.
 
In the first episode, it focuses on the raid on The Pirate Bay (how the U.S. abused international laws to force the Swedish police into action) and what the people of Sweden thinks of the issue.
 
Anyway, enough said, here’s the web-site:
 
And the direct link to the torrent of the DVD version of part 1:
 
Oh and watch out of those subliminal messages  , lol.
 

Force a network drive to disconnect via command-line

This is now getting rather annoying – sometimes when I try to remove a network drive using the:
 

net use [drive] /delete

 
command, it gives me the error saying:

The device is being accessed by an active process.

More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2404.

 
 
Does anyone know how I can force that drive to disconnect via command-line? 
(Yes, I’ve already CD-ed out of the drive before you say anything….
Also, I know you can do this via explorer – but I just prefer using the CLI…)
 

Jack and Jill

lol, came across this one from someone’s comment on one of 9down’s post (link):
 
Two individuals proceeded towards the apex of a natural geologic protuberance, the purpose of their expedition being the procurement of a sample of fluid hydride of oxygen in a large vessel, the exact size of which was unspecified. One member of the team precipitously descended, sustaining severe damage to the upper cranial portion of his anatomical structure; Subsequently the second member of the team performed a self rotational translation oriented in the same direction taken by the first team member.
 
Scroll down to understand:…….(in simple English what does this translate to??) . . . .
 
SCROLL DOWN…………………………
 
SCROLL DOWN…………………………
 
Jack and Jill went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and broke his crown
and Jill came tumbling after!!!
 
Yeah I know the complicated version didn’t even mention Jack and Jill…
 
Still, I find it funny.

My favorite RSS reader have just been updated!
 
 
For those of you who haven’t heard of this application before, SharpReader is simply a RSS reader – a damn good one considering its UI is so simple (but to the point), with excellent support for keyboard only navigation – for the PowerUsers  !

Time to patch your WLAN driver!

You may or may not care, but Intel have just released a patch for their wireless adapter used on their Centrino platform.
 
Here’s Intel’s summary:
"Security vulnerabilities exist in the Microsoft* Windows* drivers for the Intel® 2200BG and 2915ABG PRO/Wireless Network Connection Hardware because of the way that they currently handle certain frames. An attacker could potentially exploit these vulnerabilities which could potentially lead to remote code execution and system control."
 
So if you are using one of the following WLAN adapter, get patching!
• Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection
• Intel® PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection
