|lifehacker on Internet Censorship

The new Labor government is moving ahead with its mandatory ISP filtering policy, which a report in the Australian says will put the onus on users to 'opt out' if they don't want their internet to be censored. The plan has been mooted in the name of protecting children at home and at school from porn and other inappropriate content.
But civil liberties group EFA (Electronic Frontiers Australia) has warned that filters won't help protect children, and will erode internet freedom. The group says parents should still supervise their children's internet access.
Both sides of politics have been keen to censor the internet in recent months. Last year the Liberal government was embarrassed when its government-funded content filter was hacked within half an hour by a 16 year old schoolboy

note: to disable the filter download LSP-FIX.exe (a free program available almost anywhere) hit the box marked "I really know what I'm doing" and remove the appropriate DLL file from the Layered Service Protocol feature of the Winsock 2 stack - reference to Wikipedia may prove informative.. It takes approximately 30 seconds..

I started to edit my Werrington video but I have left it for the time being. I may not post it to YouTube but perhaps make snapshots from the video and upload those to give a general impression of the townhouse and home.
I received a "blue" Pension Concession card from the Government. I wasn't expecting one but it can prove useful.
I will (I hope) commence the 6 week NEIS course on Monday.
Greetings to Trevor and thanks to Ken for the MP3 - seemingly from an album titled "Cannabis". I note Ken has handed in his notice at his place of employment.
not a good day.. I'm taking several diazapam and going to bed... it's sad to note that some people don't understand legal principles and can't distinguish principles of law from principles of fact..
