You must have heard about the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). A bill that aims to fight online trafficking in copyrighted intellectual property and counterfeit goods, by giving copyright holders the right to shutdown any US hosted website they claim infringing to their copyrights. for non-US hosted sites, the site will be restricted by blocking it from ISP DNS databases ( IP access may still be possible), also the site will be removed from US search engines (all search engines?) , prohibited from using US based payment solutions (paypal, most credit card gateways), and finally advertisers will be banned from placing ads in that domain (removal from Adsense and similar). The copyright holder wouldn’t even have to set foot in a court.
What if SOPA was to pass?
If this the Sopa bill was to pass, then we can all say goodbye to the internet we once loved. Webmasters will live in constant fear of pissing off the wrong corporation. most blogs, forums, social media, file sharing, will change or disappear, as merely linking to an infringing website may open the gates of hell for the website owners. Allowing the US goverment to pass SOPA will ruin the internet for the entire planet.
You cannot let this bill pass. The DMCA ruined the internet once before and we can’t allow that to happen again. allowing SOPA is killing the Free internet.

Portal 2, was probably the best game I played this year, and boy did I play a lot of games this year! It’s really funny, innovative, and addictive. But you know whats better that? the music!
Portal 2 music and sounds in general are wonderful, from GlaDOS and its auto-tuned sarcasm, to the degenerated core with the British Stewy accent. The portal 2 ending theme of the game is one of the best ending themes ever. Both the Turrets orchestra and GalaDOS’s song “I just want you gone” are amazing.
I was looking around to see if Portal 2 Soundtrack was available, and I found that it is, For free including the Portal 2 ending theme!
