Burning the Koran Good?

Read about a few kids that had posted up a You Tube vid that they had burned the Koran and then getting charged. I think it's out of order burning a book, although that is just my opinion I suppose, if you have the opinion that it isn't out of order then it's against the law.

So freedom of expression has pretty much gone out of the window, odd really when I grew up this was something that defined us and we were proud of our heritage phrases like 'our grandparents fought two world wars for freedom of speech'. Think the politically correct lot have given that up in a rush of political correctness.

Anyway I don't think burning a book is ever a good idea and the laws of the land state it's incitement to racial hatred. However a religion isn't a race, which is odd as when you draw a cartoon seems like it's fine to burn a British Flag and have slogans like 'kill the infidel' can't seem to recall anyone getting charged over that.

Andoid Phone Fanboi

I have become an Android Fanboi, it's sad quite prepared to get into a debate with any iPhone user over the merits of Android. To that end I bought another domain with a view to reviewing all sorts of things to do with Android operating system.

I always want better so was looking for the current Top Android Phone and when I couldn't find a site offering that information on the current best phone out there bought the domain.

How to Save Streaming Video

Common question and often linked to the question How do you save You Tube Videos to your computer.

There is a cracking peice of software or website out there that does this called Keepvid. So just search for Keepvid and your away.

The killer app as it's often called is the ability to drag a link to your links toolbar and then when your watching a youtube vid click it and you'll be taken to keepvid with links to download the video in a variety of formats.

I can't link to them as I'm not sure if it's legal so you'll have to find it yourself.

Burning the Koran

Good grief another big fuss over this. I think the guy who's doing it is a nut job, a brave nut job but a nut job all the same. Very religious as well so the very best flavour.

Most of the press seem to be filling their pants though and I thought at least one world leader would have quoted Voltaire.
I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.
Actually I don't think Voltaire did say that but it's his sentiment. Billy seems to have it sorted out in his own mind anyway.

Data Recovery Linux Drive Using Windows XP

To add to the confusion this drive was a Raid drive. A Western Digital Network storage drive had failed and I was left trying to recover data. As the NAS hardware had failed I was fighting an uphill battle trying to recover the data.

Maybe it was my searching being too preoccupied with the Raid issue anyway very simple elegant piece of software. Explore 2fs, simple no nonsense that worked first time without any fuss.

Tony Blair Odds for Next Prime Minister

Watched the Interview and got to thinking what odds I could for him being next Prime Minister. It seems to have been the fashion to be against the Iraq War and Blair got the blame.
