Here’s a bizarre one…Myspace kills my ADSL

Seems that recently I can be surfing away happy as larry for however long I like, but accessing Myspace kills my entire ADSL connection. Sometimes it happens as soon as I hit Myspace.com itself and try to log in, sometimes I get in, do some stuff on Myspace then it goes down, but the common thread is Myspace and my ADSL connection going down until I restart my router.

So, what’s the deal? Any thoughts on what it could be? I suppose it might not be Myspace, but if other websites were to cause this issue with me, I haven’t found them.

You Got Served

Beatalica have been served with a cease-and-desist order.

Sony can FUCK RIGHT OFF. Irreperable damage my arse. Maybe if they were making money off the songs rather than having them up for free download on the site. Gah. They should be protected via fair use and parody laws, but there’s no way they’ll have the $$$ to fight this in court.
