Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I know that this is unrelated to this thread, but I decided to post here because it's a frontpage entry.

I'm currently watching a live webcast of the French parliament, because it's currently debating the infamous DADVSI law which is bound to tremendously restrict freedom on the internet. And I just realized that once this law is passed, I'll no longer be allowed to watch their webcasts with Linux in Windows Media Player format. Fortunately, Real Player has a player for Linux, which I am using right now, and the Parliament's webcast also proposes a real player format. But if tomorrow Real Player decide not to propose such a player, then I'll no longer be allowed to watch Parliament webcasts under Linux. If I do, I'll risk a maximum of 3 years in jail and a 300 000 euros fine.

How dumb are the parliament members in favour of this law? Answer: very.
