ecomorph + e17

Check out this link I found on Google for the highly experimental ecomorph built with compiz-fusion and e17.

Here is the detour (DTR) project.

The work Alberto Castro and Hannes Janetzek do is really impressive.

InfoWars on The end of the internet which thrives on human FREEDOM?

InfoWars discusses leaked reports from Telus and Bell Canada which show that the buisness elite are decisively moving to regulate ourinternet similar to the way the Chinese government does theirs. The so called "Internet 2" seeks to make the internet a one directional medium, similar to TV. From the article:

ISP’s have resolved to restrict the Internet to a TV-like subscription model where users will be forced to pay to visit selected corporate websites by 2012, while others will be blocked, according to a leaked report. Despite some people dismissing the story as a hoax, the wider plan to kill the traditional Internet and replace it with a regulated and controlled Internet 2 is manifestly provable

Here is more from the article:

The development of a new form of internet with new regulations is also designed to create an online caste system whereby the old internet hubs would be allowed to break down and die, forcing people to use the new taxable, censored and regulated world wide web.

The only way the elite could pull this off would be when the populace is most vulnerable, during a sea of global crsies, like combinations of epidemics, natural disasters or a dollar crash.

Flash and Firefox and upgrading slackages

Flash and therefore YouTube wasn't working in Firefox 3 RC on Slackware 12.1. The solution? Install flash player from the SlackBuilds repository. Then, cd into the flash installer and copy the .so file to /usr/lib/firefox-3.0rc2/plugins/. Restart Firefox.

And to upgrade a program using an updated slackage, fred on Freenode suggests: # upgradepkg --reinstall --install-new slackage.tgz
