Politically related :
The French internet is suffering from an intense political debate, intending to attack the privacy of web users. Firstly made to prevent illegal downloading, we’re now confonted to an insanely stupid law, which intends to cut your internet access for at least a year if you’re suspected of downloading illegaly. As we all know, knowing exactly who has been using P2Psystem is almost impossible. Of course, people in charge of this law have an an astronomical knowledge of the internet. Such as: ” if you download a file in Japan, it’ll take 3 days to come from there. The farthest, the longer the downloading…” (That was saif by Pascal Nègre, the actual president of Universal Music France.) Anyway, if you’d like to learn more about France becoming the democratic republic of China, give a read to this website.

I’m learning hindi guys. Hence the bollywood complex. But I highly sugget you to take a look at the devanagari alphabet: a good load of headaches to come. Remind me when I started to have a look at Malay language, only to discover that they were counting with ananas and rocks. Why so complicated?!!
Have a great week everyone,
Time for a glass of milk and a good night of sleep.
