Sony Rootkit Settlement
http://www.theregister.com/2006/05/23/sony_rootkit_settlement/

Hah! We win! (eh, we = consumers, anyhow)

"Consumers will receive new malware and vulnerability-free CDs, a patch to remove the offending XCP or MediaMax code, and Sony will be dishing out free downloads."

In other news, I found eMule (eDonkey?) to be an awesome network for large files. Like several archives of Hooked on Classics~ <3 =^^=v

It also helped me locate MariBato, a doujinshi Maria-sama Ga Miteru game. (...a Maria-sama Ga Miteru doujinshi game? which goes first..?). It's been uploaded to MegaUploads (:P YouSendIt, why did you have to limit your upload sizes to 50MB?) and you can download it here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ZTKJ1MZB

(Disclaimer for the file: I've run it on my own PC, but I give no guarantees of it not being a virus. It _does_ crash for me, every time the battle ends and I return to the main menu.)

'Course, considering how many revisions of the rootkit removal code they've been through already, I'm wondering just what merriment that will bring about.. ^_^;

What client are you using for the mule? I've not looked around much - just aMule here, which seems to work pretty well. Not a very native-looking app, but it works. Wish I could find Destino around, but even there, it's not to be found (a few claim to be it, but are random porn - always worth verifying a file visually early on), despite earlier assurances from Disney that it'd see a DVD release. I did come across a brief clip, suggesting it genuinely follows Dalí's style well.

Heh. I've read in places that the sony's rootkit removal code leaves holes in the system. Or something like that. So it's better to follow other removal instructions.... (but that was a while ago)

Yep, just aMule. Freezes on me every once in a while, but otherwise, yeah, pretty good.

Destino sounds....strange. Her lover's face melts off... ^^;;
