aUGH, the infamous GOBBLES writes a joke about the RIAA hax0ring peer-to-peer networks to accompany an mpg123 security advisory on bugtraq, and the next thing you know, it's on the front page of slashdot... WITHOUT the "it's funny, laugh" icon.

Bah, bah, bah.

Heheh. I was one of the many who submitted that last night. I can't say whether it's a hoax or not. But in what I read in the Register, complete with bad spelling, and conflicting information... if it IS for real, they did a good job of making it look like it wasn't.

I've hated /. for news since I matured. I do hardocp Which is really like... everything. They even link important world stuff fairly often. Google too, I suppose, but I'm just trumpeting their good search engine, I've only checked their news once. I was immediately disgusted with the world.

You know California has a $35 billion defecit this year? whoooooo.... Grey Davis is Gonna double the cost of Community College.

I got it from the cover of my copy of Turgenev's Fathers and Sons.

Must be well-known in Slavophilic academic circles, or something.

Here we go: It's from a painting called Convicted, by a 19th-century Russian artist, Vladimir Makovsky.
