Obviously, you don't keep up on your nerd-news. :P

The color codes for the blocks in my image code for 09-f9-11-02-9d-74-e3-5b-d8-41-56-c5-63-56-88-c0, the "processing key" that is used to lock up HD-DVD movies. It was just cracked a few days ago, and Digg was trying to keep it off the front page, for fear of copyright issues. There were account deletions, bans, and all kinds of bad stuff. Then Digg's founder, Kevin Rose, said he would stop deleting the content, even if it cost him the site. So, anyway, now we can watch our lawfully-purchased movies. Yay! :D

And people were coming up with "clever" ways to get around the Digg fiasco. For example: LolSloths. :P

I thought that someone would end up "decrypting" the code and feeling very clever. ; )

I'm pretty sure this was revealed over a month ago. Only recently did it start appearing on digg though.

You're right, I meant "weeks" instead of "days." Stupid fingers! ; )

It looks like a face. If I squint.
