I was disappointed not to be able to post anything interesting from CES – anything, anything at all – but at least Detroit isn’t disappointing on the metal front. Best so far is this brilliant concept from Kia, of all brands. 2l turbo driving the rear wheels. Gorgeous.
That’s according to clueless fucktard Patrick O’Donovan, Fine Gael TD for Limerick. Here’s a tip for you Patrick — when you don’t understand what you’re being told, fact-check it with at least two other independent people in the field. You fucking buffoon.
Fine Gael TD for Limerick, Patrick O’ Donovan has called for tougher controls on the use of open source internet browsers and payment systems which allow users to remain anonymous in the illegal trade of drugs, weapons and pornography. Deputy O’Donovan has written to the Oireachtas Communications Committee, of which he is a member, asking it to investigate the matter.
“An online black market is operating which protects the users’ anonymity and operates across borders through the use of open source internet browers and payments systems which allow users to remain anonymous. This effectively operates as an online supermarket for illegal goods such as drugs, weapons and pornography, where it is extremely difficult to trace the identity of the buyers. We need a national and international response to clamp down on this illicit trade.

Very sad, €400k invested in this only last year according to De Paper, with plans to extend it another 1.5km. Hopefully the budget is already there for the extension so this bit can be repaired quickly; and better — I’m no engineer but the way the deck is attached to the piles looks very weak to me.
Youghal Town Council, if you’re listening, if you create a ringfenced fund for repair and development of the next section, my family will donate €50 and my business €100. And please post updates on your website.
Ok, it’s marketing, but I like it.
Via freshpopcorn on Boards. I know they had their problems, bulbs in particular, but these are what I think of as proper xmas decs, with proper xmas colours. The white ones bores me; the blue ones infuriate me.
