Pirate Talk

So, I hear that a lot of people pirate movies. I don’t really care if people do it or not, but there is a subculture attached to piracy and hacking attached to bootlegged movies (Pirates vs. Ninjas?) that is too often overlooked now that P2P has made it so easy to steal online. If you’re down with stealing but are ignorant of the scene, at least learn some lingo.

Speaker Hack.

Another addition to the laptop workspace. I had gotten these cheap Philips speakers from woot a while back, but the damn things took 6 AAA batteries to run. This was good because with a good set of batteries they were pretty loud for being so portable, but it was annoying to have to recharge 6 batteries in my 4 battery capacity charger. All I did was crack it open and splice in an adapter that had a DC 9V output. Quick and easy and reduces portability, but I could shove this in my bag. Decent bass response for what I paid.

What do you think?
