Quite the jetsetter now Drew. How was the Russian beer?

Hmm. I must have missed something. Who got arrested? Almost makes it sound like Drew did. Heh heh.

It's not news. It's

A russian dude got arrested for selling a program that lets you hax0r encrypted PDF files. Kind of like how all those companies that made copy machines are gone now because their technology allowed people to take entire books and give them away.

I thought the russian hackers were doing very well on their own thank you. Still, that is cool drew.

Congratulations Comrade Drew. Now pass the borscht and vodka.

Perl *shudders*, frightening looking shiznit.

The Ruskie was arrested at Defcon in Las Vegas last week for giving a speech on the piss poor security that Adobe uses. That and the program he made that other people stated.

Sadly though, I don't think this is going to be that big of a deal. Mainstream media doesn't care about this kind of stuff and just sees this guy as another malicious 'hacker' who's trying to bring down capitalism and all that is righteous and holy. If anything after talk radio xenophobes and network anchors talk this up, people will be asking for the poor guy to be executed.

Wait until the Warren Commision hears about this

Pravda and an appeal for money on the same day.
Drew is turning into a third world nation, perhaps the UN will offer money for the Fark server appeal?

I was hoping they had a russianized version that we could run through babelfish a few hundred times... alas... I couldn't find one. Of course, I don't speak Russian...

If we make copy machines no one will buy books anymore - they can just make illegal copies. This must be stopped.

If we allow the radio stations to play _our_ music over the airwaves no one will will buy _our_ records anymore - they can listen to it for free. This must be stopped.

If this Betamax technology is allowed on the market no one will buy movies anymore - they can just make illegal copies. This must be stopped.

If this telephone thing catches on no one will go out and talk to people face to face anymore - they can talk to whoever they want without leaving their house. This must be stopped.

It this Napster catches on no one will buy _our_ records anymore - they can just download all of _our_ music for free. This must be stopped.

Blah blah blah... The wheel... Forks... Sharp rocks...

You get the picture...

Burn the infidels!!

Dear God, you let them post your phone number? Now hundreds of horney Russian woman will be calling trying to marry you for citizenship. Good luck, and God speed.
2001-07-23 07:00:36 PM  
Thank you Cluster'. Well writ.
You saved me some phrasing and typing.
2001-07-23 07:19:14 PM  
Is that the truth?
2001-07-23 08:16:23 PM  
Yes, Drew will soon be getting phone calls from horney Russian women only after him for his citizenship, mailed beer, and new server.

It's all true.
2001-07-23 08:36:29 PM  
Yes in Russian it means the truth--smart ass!

You're all a bunch of commies. I ♥ Adobe!

I still think the headline looks like Drew got arrested.

(Actually I knew all the time about that anarchist who
wants to take all of our beautiful American art away from us. How dare he violate our masterpieces of film art..!!)

I guess nobody understands me.
