I already knew it was a thin edge that people found themselves on if they offered free wifi, but I didn’t realise until today that it will soon be illegal to share an internet connection if you don’t log the identity of the person using said connection!
Thanks to a Tweet by Liam J. Hayter with a link to his blog I found out that apparently it will now be a legal requirement to take responsibility for who uses your internet connection. You will be liable for any illegal usage of your connection if you cannot prove who else used said connection.
So I have written to my local MP just to try and head it off at the pass, perhaps you might do the same:

Following a posting by my brother about mortgages and negative equity I thought it was time to publish an article that I have been sitting on for some months. Why I didn’t put it up here earlier is beyond me, but I also thought that someone might like to actually take this up.
Read it, comment on it, share it!
The article is about how you can build a housing project in not only an ecologically sustainable way but in a way which is also economically sustainable. It might not be vastly profitable from a capitalistic point of view but it is sustainable and has room to make some money. You can find it here.
Trawling through the web while Angel does the ironing (it’s a hard life) and I stumbled upon a fantastic animation done using FAA flight information here.
Watch the animations, they are well worth it! (click "Read more" to see the embedded video)

It's been bugging me for some time that I have this application running in the background on my machine, "Install Shield Update Manager". It isn't as useful as it would like to be and I am unimpressed that I had to download a 2.2MB application just to remove it . I think about the waste, how periodically commercial software is updated and then realise that I don't need something in the background wasting my systems resources.
I've used their feedback to tell them as much and I've removed it, hopefully.
Now I am truely p*ssed off, I read on here and found that apparently the "uninstaller" doesn't do anything except hide the "Update Manager" even further. Inspecting my task list with Process Explorer I find it still there. Terminate with extreme violence!
It might be of use to someone, so I published an article that has languished on my hard disk for some time. Give it a read and see what you think. But set aside some time, it’s not a little one!
