Brilliantly written, and nice to see Canadian courts standing up for people.
 
Why Copyright Trolling in Canada Doesn't Pay: Assessing the Fallout From the Voltage - TekSavvy Case

The Canadian media featured extensive coverage over the weekend of the federal court decision that opens the door to TekSavvy disclosing the names and addresses of thousands of subscribers and establishes new safeguards against copyright trolling in Canada. While some focused on the copyright trolling issues, others emphasized the disclosure of the names and the possibility of lawsuits. 
What comes next is anyone's guess - Voltage indicates that it plans to pursue the case - but the economics of suing thousands of Canadians for downloading a movie for personal purposes may not make sense given current Canadian law. This post examines the law and estimated costs of pursuing file sharing litigation against individuals, concluding that the combination of copyright reform, the Voltage decision, likely damage awards, and litigation costs will force would-be plaintiffs to reconsider their strategies...

Something I did over lunches, and finalized tonight. Dug up some Windows For Workgroup 3.11 disks, with DOS 6.22 and digging around sites all over the net for drivers. Here it is, running with a full IP stack with Netscape and IE5. Oh, since I stumbled across it, I threw Word 2.0c in there.

IE actually was around. The version I'm using of it and Netscape were the last supported versions. Can't get above 800x600 sadly, but it got the brain juices working. Can't imagine how I used to do that without another PC and Google... But I did.

I surrender. Block heaters are plugged in. #Jeep  is getting the worst mileage ever... 1/4 tank and only driven 31 km. My commute is too short to get up to full operating temperature, and it's just drinking the gas happily. Ahh well... Supposed to break this coming weekend and warm up a bit.
