[Update] Net neutrality and the disregard for it by companies

So, normally (figuratively speaking) when I post things on this blog, it's not really anything serious.

But now, things have changed.
This is something serious.

The Swedish mobile operator Tre (Hi3G) have gone out with the sales pitch that they will be letting their customers use a few music streaming services without it affecting their monthly data usage (up to a maximum of 70GB per month).

This is something really serious.
They are openly using their utter disregard for net neutrality as a sales pitch.
And the worst part is, ordinary people, have no idea what a dangerous precedence this sets for other mobile operators to follow, if they want to stay competitive.

And what happens behind closed doors?
The music streaming services that isn't included, what are the reasons for not including them?
Didn't they want to pay for the privilege? Are the included ones picked at random?
Other reasons?

With this in mind, what's the next step?
Video streaming services?
The slippery slope is slippery.

And -very- dangerous.

This is an issue that needs to be brought to the public mind.
Because it can't be allowed to continue.

For those that can't understand the text, here's CGP Grey explaining it too:

Kittens; The exploding kind

So, let's talk kittens.

We all love them (except maybe those that are allergic ... ), because they are cute, cuddle and show utter disregard for us as superior beings.

And that, my friends, are what makes Exploding Kittens so bloody attractive!

Rift [MMORPG] talk

So this week I started playing Rift.

Last time I played, was in it's original closed Beta way back when, before it launched as P2P.

And I must say, it certainly has matured a whole lot since it came out.
And transitioned well from P2P to F2P.

One of the things that's a good thing, is the introduction of purposes for each calling.
(Calling = Base class)

Bronies - The Musical [AVByte]

So I came across this video earlier today..
And it's just delightfully fantastic and fitting that it was an immediate blogpost about it (well, almost, I had to motivate myself to get out of bed first xD )

Made by AVByte on youtube and... Well, just listen to it!

I can't help but feel all giddy and happy from listening to it! :D

They have a whole lot more musicals, so after watching, hop on over and listen to a few more!

Now, it's time to get ready for work.
(aka put on pants)

Over and out~

Secrets and Dragon Age: Inquisition

I've recently gotten my hands on a new gfx-card and some new monitors.
And after starting up DA:I for the first time after that, I ran into some gfx bugs.

Namely, clipping.

And clipping can be really fun; Especially when you find secrets while falling through the floor of your mountain fort.
