Saxat från Rick Falkvinge

"Nu när propositionen är lagd så börjar det dyka upp riktiga obehagligheter, mycket värre än att skicka kravbrev som får tonåringar att hänga sig. Emma sammanfattar vad som hittats hittills:
  1. När en identitet (på en abonnemangsinnehavare - inte en fildelare!) lämnas ut till upphovsrättslobbyn, så får abonnemangsinnehavaren inte få reda på det förrän 30 dagar senare.
  2. Upphovsrättslobbyn får rätt att göra privat husrannsakan för något som polisen inte får göra husrannsakan för.
  3. Upphovsrättslobbyn får rätt att frysa bankkonton för abonnemangsinnehavaren (återigen, inte den person som fildelat)."

The Model

1) The HTPC project is still on-going, phew. For watching stored video media it works a treat, and the MP-TV Series plugin for MediaPortal (yeah, I didn't go the linux route, it was too hasslesome for me :)) is effin awesome.

2) The Swedish Model, ah, a breath of fresh air! Seven independent record labels that have joined forces and states that it's time to move forward. Let the old model die out and let new ones flourish. Check it out (in Swedish).

It's been a while...

But I've finally ordered my HTPC. I ended up going with the Antec case, but a newer version:

Picture blatantly "borrowed" from and courtesy of

And I'm putting the following stuff in it:
  • ABIT AN-M2HD, nForce 630a+GF7050PV,Socket-AM2, DDR2, HDMI, m-ATX, PCI-Ex16
  • AMD Athlon64 X2 BE-2350, EE, BOX
  • Corsair Value DDR2-800, 1024MB
  • Samsung SP T166 500GB, SATAII, 16MB
  • Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-150, Retail
Total price, about 4800kr (had to order from two stores, made shipping a bit more expensive), or €520, or $740.

I'm excited / nervous. I hope it will turn out better than good!
