XXX Censored Mist Lifting off Cedars - Stop SOPA and PIPA

I created this version of my image "Mist Lifting off Cedars" to demonstrate my support for the web's dark day in protest of the SOPA and PIPA bills.

This was the image used improperly by Texas District 21 Congressman Lamar Smith's website www.texansforlamarsmith.com, the very sponsor of the SOPA bill. If they can not run a single, simple website according to legal rights how can they write legislation to affect the global internet?

Vice.com story here: http://www.vice.com/en_uk/read/lamar-smith-sopa-copyright-whoops

This is one of the better explanations that takes the language of the SOPA legislation and demonstrates why it is horrible: http://mashable.com/2012/01/17/sopa-dangerous-opinion/

Impressive.

This video of ugly soviet-style houses is apparently supposed to improve the reputation of the eastern suburbs in Oslo:

"Han tok idéen videre til Plankontoret for Groruddalen og til Roy Tjomsland. Han fikk umiddelbart troen på prosjektet og ville satse.
– Vi vurderte den positive effekten en slik video ville ha og gav ham tilskudd. Vi leter stadig etter noe som kan hjelpe til med å bygge Groruddalens omdømme, og dette er et slikt prosjekt, forteller Tjomsland."

Google has just too much power nowadays.

My email account at work has been down for 4 MONTHS by now, and nothing my employer can do with it! So much for running services from the cloud ... what can I do, except for changing to an employer that hosts their own email servers? ;-)
"We are currently working on your account because an error occurred with your mail storage. Your account data and messages are safe. However, you won’t be able to log in until our team is finished.

We can’t predict exactly how long this will take, but if you are still unable to access your account in 48 hours, please contact us with your username at gmail-maintenance@google.com. We apologize for the disruption."

(and, fwiw, I'll start working for Redpill Linpro from the 1st of February - but the email problem is not the primary reason. I believe it's better to have work in Oslo when living in Oslo. I'm sure going to miss the freedom of working from a home office and all the work-related trips to Tromsø, Tallinn and Malta though).

google ripple virus alert: during the last 48 hours or so, I've seen at least some 7-8 different shares of some post saying "let's test the new ripple feature, please reshare!".

Such ropes are a nice but very dangerous toy for a 8-month old ... it was a bit too close for comfort this morning, when he managed to stand up, get some ropes like those around his neck and then sit down ...

Hmmm ... cold fusion in the spotlight again ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy_Catalyzer

Look out for the 28th of October ... if this device works as advertised, then the world will never be the same again. Goodbye dirty fossil fuels, all investments into "green" energy will be worthless overnight, Norways offshore oil will be virtually worthless, same with all our hydro power. The "Peak Oil deniers" pointing out that "the stone age didn't end due to a lack of stones" will be proven right.

I'm willing to bet it's a hoax, though.
