Cavan Kola

Monday, September 14th, 2009

There is a facebook group called “Bring back Cavan Kola” and now a new song from Dublin band ‘Reader’s Wives’ You can check out their website here http://readerswives.360degreemusic.com or listen to the song now When I was a kid, I used to think this was revolting stuff, but most kids liked it because when it was poured into a glass, it kept it’s head and resembled a bottle of stout

Piratebay

Monday, September 14th, 2009

If any of you have broadband from Eircom and are fond of filesharing, you might have noticed that the piratebay.org site has been blocked. Eircom have agreed to block sites that record companies claim help people to infringe copyright law on their music.
The solution is to use another torrent site or to simply use a proxy server to get to the site. I particularly like the aptly named www.hidemyass.com but there are plenty of them out there (google “proxy server”) just enter www.thepiratebay.org into the box on their site, and away you go. You’ll also need a bittorrent client such as azureus which is available as shareware.
Eircom are the only Irish ISP to agree to this pressure so far. Your other alternative is to change ISP. The others are cheaper anyway.
Have fun.
