The Massive Flash Flood in KL & My House in Ipoh

March 13, 2012 at 1:38 AM

Last week, on Wednesday, March 7th, an unexpected MASSIVE flash flood occurred in Kuala Lumpur. It was quite shocking as it was so bad. I mean, look at the picture above. The water already ‘swallowed’ half of the cars and the water level was at your waist. That’s DEEP.

Nando’s Punch Better Than KFC

It certainly is better.

Clever!

Take THAT KFC.

But I still love KFC despite all the chaos about the staff’s breaking some kung fu moves on a customer. They do have the most awesomest chickens and coleslaw.

BtJunkie Shuts Down In Fear. RIP BtJunkie.

February 7, 2012 at 3:00 PM

The effect of megaupload shut down is massive. Now, one of the most popular torrent sites, BtJunkie has shut down in fear.

The Megaupload shutdown has claimed another victim. BitTorrent indexing site BTJunkie has closed up shop.

Visiting btjunkie.org currently displays a blank page with nothing more than “btjunkie 2005-2012” and a brief notefrom the founders.

“This is the end of the line my friends. The decision does not come easy, but we’ve decided to voluntarily shut down,” they wrote. “We’ve been fighting for years for your right to communicate, but it’s time to move on. It’s been an experience of a lifetime, we wish you all the best!”

The company did not specifically address why it opted to shut down, but in an interview with TorrentFreak, BTJunkie’s unnamed founder said the threat of legal action was a main reason. “Witnessing all the trouble colleagues got into was cause for a lot of worry and stress, and those will now belong to the past,” TorrentFreak wrote.

The blog noted that BTJunkie was reported to the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) in November, the MPAA and RIAA list it as a “rogue” Web site (like those targeted by SOPA and PIPA), and it is censored by Google over piracy concerns.

Last month, the Justice Department shut down Megaupload.com for massive copyright infringement. Several of its executives were arrested and they face up to 50 years in prison on various charges.

In the wake of that takedown, multiple cloud-based services altered their services – shutting downfile-sharing options, eliminating upload rewards, or cutting off access to U.S. users.

In a January roundup of the most popular torrent sites, TorrentFreak said BTJunkie landed at number five.

The number-one site on that list was The Pirate Bay. Last week, Sweden’s Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal from the site’s founders, who were found guilty of copyright infringement in 2009.

Why do sites that I use often are now no longer available? Argh. This frustrates me to no end. Thank you America for destroying the internet for the rest of the world. This bites. I hate starting over. It took me a long time to get used to btjunkie after the shut down of mininova.org. RIP BtJunkie. It was fun while it lasted.

Who’s next?

Filesonic & Fileserve ‘Committed Suicide’ By Disabling Filesharing. RIP.

January 25, 2012 at 5:10 AM

I guess we all saw this coming.

Majority of file sharing sites, including one of the most popular ones which are filesonic & fileserve finally ‘committed suicide‘ in fear of the megaupload case.

Basically filesonic has disabled filesharing function, which is the main function of the whole site. Majority of the users used it for filesharing, doesn’t matter for piracy or legal use. I was hoping this site would stay alive but unfortunately they were chickens. It’s the site I paid monthly to. Yes I had the premium account. Glad I found out before my paypal automatically renews the payment on the same day so I had the chance to cancel. Oh well, it was nice knowing you filesonic. Thank you for all the downloads.

Fileserve also disabled its filesharing function. I heard some others committed suicide too, like one site banned paid users or something.. technically all these sites committed mass suicide. At least, unlike megaupload, they didn’t disable personal upload so if you had uploaded the files, you could still retrieve them and still use them for personal use. I don’t know who would.

It sucks majorly because I used these sites a lot because download from file sharing sites utilizes my connection speed to the maximum . Looks like I have to find an alternative now. But I heard megaupload is coming back. However, anonymous are still taking down websites.. hope they’ll keep going until the retards would come to their senses and stop wanting to censor internet…

 

…. wishful thinking.

Megaupload Taken Down & Internet Retaliate. STOP SOPA/PIPA.

January 20, 2012 at 10:20 AM

Ok WTF AMERICA?? You have crossed the line!

Megaupload, the popular and most used file sharing website has been taken down today and now internet users are pissed off. Anonymous started retaliating and gave major websites including the FBI, WMG, MPAA, RIAA etc all taken down today in the largest DDOS attack. But is that enough to make an impact? No I don’t think so unfortunately. It’s enough to make them notice but I don’t think it would make them fear to actually stop proposing SOPA & PIPA legislation.

This sucks. Internet censorship should NOT happen!

I guess this is what the end of world 2012 meant.. this is literally a move towards the end of world because if you think about it, if they censor internet, I can assume that 70% of internet will be gone. I just hope some other internet file sharing site will not be taken down because there’s one that I do pay monthly. I pity those who paid megaupload for a lifetime membership.

PLEASE STOP SOPA & PIPA.

The attacks however are amusing. I just love it for the LULZ.
