Always thought it was b.s.

Using a more difficult font just takes energy from the learning process and diverts that concentration into the deciphering of the text. I would rather have that mental effort go into transferring from short term to long term memory. It is simple efficiency of energy.
 
Despite what you may have read, using a more difficult font doesn't improve test scores.
Wouldn’t it be cool if there was a simple trick to score better on college entrance exams like the SAT and other tests? There is a reputable claim that such a trick exists. Unfortunately, the trick does not appear to...

Once again a reason to express how much I love CloudFlare, both as a web hosting user and as a hosting provider. Also, I love HostGator for providing CloudFlare free of charge to all of my domains and my clients' domains as a reseller.
The team at CloudFlare is excited to announce the release of Universal SSL™. Beginning today, we will support SSL connections to every CloudFlare customer, including the 2 million sites that have signed up for the free version of our service....

and... don't drop it.  Seen the picture of the broken one?  Popped off a guy's wrist and they want 2/3 the purchase price to replace it.  I guess we know why... scarcity increases the value of something.

Mayweather or Pacquiao? Regardless of who wins, Internet intermediaries are the losers.
Two men are going to fight this weekend, and HBO and Showtime have already thrown the first punch in the legal fight over online streaming of the match. Taking advantage of an increasingly abused loophole in copyright law, they have just won a court order requiring a host of third parties to block access to sites that may stream the fight.

I don't know how many of you are following the GrooveShark thing, and the fact that they just handed everything over. In light of this event I thought an E-mail exchange I had with their licensing department back in October of last year might be of interest to some of you.

Subject: ******** on Grooveshark

So I am ****** (artist,) and I just noticed that my 3 tracks from the last.fm artist page have become available on Grooveshark. I am curious how this happened. Do you normally spider the artist pages at last.fm looking for freely playable tracks? They might also be available on Soundcloud, but I am not positive

I prefer to remain anonymous, and would like to ensure that the artist name and my name don't get linked. Thus far that has not been an issue, but when my music starts showing up on sites without my knowledge or permission, I begin to wonder what other metadata might be getting linked.

BTW, the version on last.fm were originally 320kbps, but due to policy change have been automatically down sampled to 128kbps versions. If anyone there cares I can provide the original, archive quality tracks. The 128kbps versions have a microphone in a washing machine sound on the high hats and don't do the songs any justice.

Yours truly.

Grooveshark Content Team | OCT 12, 2014 05:24PM UTC

Hello John. Thank you very much for your patience, help and interest in Grooveshark. I am very sorry for the trouble, delay and confusion. We will  figure this out.

Grooveshark is a music streaming site used by artists, labels, distributors and users to host their music and share their songs with millions of fans. All artist management tools and functionality are now in-site. To get started, you just need to claim your artist page on Grooveshark.

To claim the artist page, navigate to the artist page on Grooveshark and claim the page using the gear icon located in the top right. (Screen shot: http://cl.ly/OaBi)

If you are unsure how these sound files became available on Grooveshark, they were likely uploaded by a user account claiming the necessary rights to upload the sound files to our hosting site. 

In cases like this, where a dispute is raised about content, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) defines proper notice to remove content. 

If you believe there to be infringing content on our hosting service and site, we would appreciate your assistance in having it removed by using the contact form on this page: http://www.grooveshark.com/dmca_form

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I would like to help.

Subject: Re: ******** on Grooveshark

I think you misunderstand. I am the artist, and I don't care much about licensing, nor do I wish a removal of the music. I just know that nobody would have uploaded it, because nobody listens to it. Acidplanet, soundcloud, and last.fm all show a single listener to the artist, and that would be myself. So my question is more of a curiosity.

Thank you for pointing out the claim page, I might just do that.

Thank you.

Thanks so much for clarifying, John. I really appreciate your patience and help. We are not able to disclose uploader information per our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, unfortunately. 

Claiming the page will allow you to see how many user accounts have Collected and Favorited the tracks on your artist page. It will also allow you to monitor plays and other analytics. 

Please let me know what you think and if you have any questions or concerns. I would like to help.

What makes this so interesting in hindsight is: GrooveShark was trying to hind behind a clause in the DMCA that said a website could not be held accountable for content uploaded by users, and the courts denied the argument due to the fact that employees of their parent company were doing the vast majority of the uploading under the direction of their employer. That means somebody was paid to look through other content sites, find my music, and upload it as a fan. Likely they never even listened to it.

Now, with all of that in mind, notice this line from their first reply "If you are unsure how these sound files became available on Grooveshark, they were likely uploaded by a user account claiming the necessary rights to upload the sound files to our hosting site."
