Fedora + RPMFusion + ATI Drivers = Dilemma?

Author: admin | Category: Uncategorized | Tags:

But I’m having trouble getting the right drivers working with out any errors or black screens that freeze. First, I had ATI Radeon 4850 HD which gave me a lot of stress and sleepless nights getting it working properly on Fedora 13. Most common problems were non supported with the default Fedora Kernel and updating […]

Having jumped into a discussion between Dr Richard Stallman and some Pirate Party leaders, it came to a point in the discussion where examining this particular license seemed appropriate.

Has Educational Media Lost Its Monetary Value?

Author: admin | Category: Uncategorized | Tags:

I was disappointed to read of the prosecution against the admin of Student Bay, a Swedish file-sharing site dedicated to providing text books to students (or anyone else looking for a free education). Of all forms of pirated media that is available in abundance over the internet, educational texts are the most important and least […]

Ebay Really Wants Their Two Dollars

Author: admin | Category: Uncategorized | Tags:

After an Ebay goof up involving a customer dispute which not only put me in the red on a sale, but led to Ebay claiming that I owe them $2.80, I decided the company is a joke and I would rather cut my losses and never do business with them. This was around two years […]

DeSopa Proves Pirates Won’t Be Hindered By Sopa, Everybody Else Will

Author: admin | Category: Uncategorized | Tags:

Once again we have a clear example that pirates are better than you. Pirates have the fundamental nature of an internet that is defined by sharing information on their side, which gives them the advantage of always overcoming ignorant attempts at blocking the flow of information.

DDoS Groups Warring on Each Other

Author: admin | Category: Uncategorized | Tags:

I can only chuckle to myself while watching the hypocrisy of one group using DDoS to attack another for using DDoS. Under the name Operation: Fightback, apparently, a group of American Nationalists have been able to take down the site anonops.eu. Sites such as piratepad.net and thepiratebay.org may also be down due to being targeted, […]

There has recently been a lot of attention given to PayPal’s freezing of funds belonging to WikiLeaks. PayPal has a long history of freezing it’s user’s finances. I’ve personally had to deal with PayPal freezing my cash because they wanted a tracking number for shipping, which made no sense for a rent payment sent from […]

Reader Appreciation Time – 5,000 Green Pirate Visitors

Author: admin | Category: Uncategorized | Tags:

While I should really be waiting until I have an excuse to say “OVER 9000!!!”, I just want to say thanks to the readers, new and old, who have put Green Pirate well over 5,000 unique visitors for the last 30 day span. I’m not big into analytics so I pretty much just check the […]

Host Your Own Pirate Bay

Author: admin | Category: Uncategorized | Tags:

That’s what the future could hold now that The Pirate Bay is cutting the dead weight of .torrent files and moving toward full reliance on a magnet URI scheme. This effectively turns the pirate site into a searchable index of hash tags without any file hosting or handling. A user recently ripped the entire magnet […]
