drm == dumb rodents matter?

Christophe just told me about how he bought this Placebo CD in
France, and it appeared to have copy protection on it. Then I read
somewhere that Hail to the Thief had it too (and I grabbed my CD to
check-- thankfully it did not), and it hit me how ridiculous it was
to put it on CDs. It just encourages people to pirate music so that
they aren't limited in what they can do with it. So if copy 
protection is going to work, it has to be 100% effective, otherwise
it just encourages piracy, really. And of course, we know copy 
protection cannot be 100% effective unless we ditch the last 100
years of technology, and even then it just raises the barrier of
entry. Anyway, I'm happy my copy of HTTT plays fine on my computer
(hopefully people in Europe don't suffer a worse fate for that 

I mean seriously, who honestly believes putting copy protection on
CDs is going to have ANY EFFECT WHATSOEVER on piracy? IT JUST TAKES
ONE PERSON TO CIRCUMVENT (a good analogue rip might even pass). ONE.

terrible streams that no longer exist.

My horrible shoutcast stream is up over 24 hours of content now, yay.
Put a new easter egg on nullsoft.com. A bit more difficult than the
last one. Werd.

sickly from the travel, I think

ugh somehow I managed to get sick again. bleh. set up a new shoutcast
stream though, muhaha. bleh I go get in bed.

Decided to just embrace modern technology and took drugs. That was about
an hour ago, so now I'm feeling a little bit less miserable.

Just got home. Very good trip. Will give details when I'm not so tired.

Pictures from the trip: here, and here.

Well I'm not gonna give too many details, just a few random things:
* Lots of good dogs in Italy and France.
* Good concerts. Our hotel in Ferrara was like 15' from the stage. It was a trip
* Christophe was in France, so he came to the shows too. Allison and I
  pissed him off a lot (by stupidly questioning his french-ness), but 
  when I talked to him on AIM once I got home he seemed to be OK.
* Daniel was in England so he came to Nimes with us. On our last day there 
  we went to the beach, and went swimming. The water was nice, and while 
  the waves were less than great (we did manage to bodysurf some), Daniel
  had a good line. After a couple of french girls in bikinis tried to talk
  to him in french, and he tried to talk to them in english, Daniel said
  something like "it is good for the soul having chickies swimming near 
  you in the sea." And later on, he amended to be "good for the soul and
  self-image." Haha.
* Mmm good food in Italy, good food in France (hmm, I hope the good dogs and
  good food correlation is just a coincidence)
* Ian and Julie came to Nimes, too. We had a good time, and a good dinner,
  with them and some of their friends.
* I started speaking a little bit of broken french, and it was fun. At
  one point, I politely asked for two (2!!!) bottles of water! Wow! heh. :)
