    To some degree, I’m sure the idea of potential prosecution is enough to stop a few.

    Don’t be mistaken, I’m an Anarcho-Capitalist, I just wonder how a few of these issues might be handled…

    Wow. My life has been enriched having been made aware of Vida Guerra’s assets.

    I got an adapter for my laptop so I could try this out, but never got around to it. It would be pretty cool if I could broadcast to the pretty girl next door.
