Sorry it's been a while since I last blogged, I haven't had much time to get onto a computer.

In the week leading up to the royal wedding, what is your opinion on the whole thing?

Personally, I think its been in the media far to much. I mean the idea of having the day off to come together and be proud of your country is good. Unfortunately this isn't what the media is mass broadcasting. Their main focus is on the dress, attire, etc. Isn't this just materialism? Advertising so that women all over the world can have a wedding just like William and Kate's.

The other thing I don't understand is why it is being broadcast in America. The U.S.A is no longer part of commonwealth, so why is it important to them? I think it comes back to my first point. That the wedding has become more of a forum for companies to advertise rather then national pride.

It's funny how people always compare how much they drink. What I don't understand is why drinking always turns into a competition. Everyone's body is different so who cares how much we drink. For the past six months I have been on medication and it has been only recently since I have come off it. During this time certain people would call me: wimp, wuss and an all round person who could not handle their drinks. Well tonight my friends I proved them wrong. While they were being sick in the toilet, I was having fun. Living it up.

Basically what I am getting to is what is your opinion on drinking culture in this day and age?

Today I went fishing and I have never been sea sick before but I guess there is a first time for everything. Physics isn't always fun. Especially when you're heaving over the side of a boat, while trying to untangle a rope that has been caught round the motor.

On the topic of fishing though, one thing I could never understand is why people are so attracted so it. I mean don't get me wrong I thoroughly enjoy but I really don't know why, because:
  • You get covered in fish/squid guts. Which once the smell is on you, it just wont come off. 
  • The weather batters you. (Generally any day you want to go out fishing you can guarantee the weather will take a turn for the worse)
  • Your body gets soaked
  • You have to spend hours once you get home cleaning the saltwater of the equipment.
  • All the money you spend on the gear.
All this for one feed of fish (which I am allergic to, so it seems even more pointless).

I guess it's all to satisfy our hunter/gatherer instincs.

 Any thoughts?

Today I want to talk about the new powers governments are giving to ISP's to police pirating. I am not sure what the laws are like in the U.S. at the moment but I have recently seen that in Britain and my own country that the government is changing the copyright laws.

In my country internet users who download pirated materials get three warnings and then their internet will be disconnected and a $15000 fine will be issued. I assume that the whole operation will be funded by the tax payer and the revenue from the fines. The thing i don't understand about this is why should the tax payer should constantly have to fund the Movie/Music industry war on piracy. The internet pirates will only find a way to get around the new traffic monitoring, so millions of our hard earn dollars are going to end up being wasted.

Britain's law was slightly different. I read that the government wanted ISP's to cover 25% of the cost of monitoring internet users. That only means price increases to internet users to cover this new cost.

All these new laws are doing is wasting money. The only way to take out internet piracy is at the source. The up-loaders. The only problem with this is that they are in countries where they have no laws against piracy or the government just doesn't care.

So my thoughts are on all this is that the Movie/Music industry should just give up. So what if you lose a few million, you still make billions a year and it will mean that we don't end up paying millions enforcing your copyright. Besides if people really like what they are watching the will go out and buy it.

Today i tried out PTC (paid to click) for the first time and i must say its a complete waste of time to begin with. $0.001 per click its a joke, my time must be worth more then that. Apparently though, it's meant to get better as time goes on. I saw one guy on the forum of the particular site it was on that had earn $161000 U.S. I truly couldn't believe my eyes, though he had been doing it for 3 years and he did have 1100 referrals. I would be happy with a $1000.

After seeing this it left me wondering whether it would be good to do this for a small part of the day and also to have a job. The money you could make of the PTC could be pocket money for hobbies. With this in mind I am going to carry on trying it out for a month using a strategy I found online, hopefully it works. I will keep you guys up-to-date with my progress.
