Well, they shutted down the servers, they might bring them back up after the whole suing thing. Or not.

mumbles about being lazy to upload stuff to places you have to wait 45 seconds to download*
Megaupload > No captcha for free users
if we use megaupload+jdownloader = perfect, more fast than torrents

Actually it has CAPTCHAS where I live. Just 3 letters, though. It also had the annoying 45 seconds wait, but most other sites didn't work properly. Mediafire is better I think IMHO, though.

I have to agree with dJ I like mediafire more though if i remember correctly megaupload lets you upload larger files so thats useful

(Above post is obv. spam.)


So all you care about is how changing avatars on calculator forums will change a thing?

Also stopping SOPA won't help. It's a bit more than blacking out one single day and you are not cool, because you are "against" it. Do you really care? Or did you just jump on the bandwagon for fun? See what you can rwally do to stop SOPA: http://goo.gl/ZErh8

Just FYI there was a spambot in the post above Nanowar's, but I banned him and deleted the post.

That is how we are showing our (anti)support here. I for one have signed the whitehouse poll and sent messages to my congressman to block it also. We are against it truly

I've done everything short of contacting my Senator (though that's because I'm too nervous to). I don't think there are very many people who are against it, "just to be cool".

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

Same for a bunch of people. Also I don't think it's right to just plain jump in the discussion and accuse people of joining the bandwaggon just for fun.

(Btw had I lived in USA I would certainly not vote for whoever tried to pass this bill and the other related ones)

Looking around it appears to me that SOPA/PIPA are dead(or as wikipedia says: hiding). the blackouts appear to have worked :D there is now OPEN which i havent looked much into so I cant say anything about it. Anyone know if this new one is as bad as SOPA/PIPA?

IDK much about OPEN, but if its like SOPA/PIPA in any way, we should be wary. ;)

From what I've seen so far it is like SOPA/PIPA but with a little more beuracracy I'm sorry if I'm wrong but thats what I get from quickly reading over a descripition
