The 39 months that have elapsed since my last post should make it clear that this blog is rather dead. I think I’ll leave this site up for now (for posterity, I suppose), but I won’t be posting any new content here. However, I have started blogging again. Check out Jonathan Rascher’s new Web site for some more recent content.

What do those numbers mean?
They mean that HD DVD encryption has recently been cracked. That’s right, a valid AACS processing key has finally been found. Using this key, all current HD DVD movies can be decrypted.
However, things aren’t all this good. The administrators of the popular social-networking/news site Digg has tried their best to prevent discussion about it. They’ve removed stories about the crack, prevented highly-dugg stories from reaching the front page, and even banned many users who’ve commented about it.
So, if you hate DRM and censorship, spread these numbers everywhere, especially on Digg!
Well, I was thinking it would be cool if it supported Zooomr too, so went to my dashboard and sent a quick feedback message. Less than a half hour later (did I mention that I love the support here?) I got a response from Mark saying that it already worked with Zooomr. I copy-and-pasted my photo feed URL into the widget options, and, sure enough, it does work!
PS: I know this is basically a photoblog, so I guess having my photostream in the sidebar is kind of redundant. I’ll probably remove the widget soon, but I still wanted to share this little tip with anyone who’s interested.
