I've gotten my main man and RSS mercenary, Carlo, to scrape the EFF's MGM v. Grokster case archive into RSS. New or edited list items added to their case archive will show up as new RSS entries on this feed. Here's the feed (link):

`nofollow` for b2evolution...

NQB 2.0 shows up in various sets of search results, occasionally for something useful, but mostly for stupid crap. Crap that I felt the need to blog but Google thinks I may actually know jack about (take a look at the stats page linked to at right).

With Google's support of the rel="nofollow" link attribute (See "Nofollow to limit blog and comment spam" from SEJ), this can provide a powerful tool to ensure that you don't exacerbate these kinds of situations when they resonate. (like, for example, when you're linked to highly in search results and people come to your site and then show up in your stats page... a vicious cycle of absurdity.)

So, to counteract this and to eliminate linkage to anyone that I don't specifically condone, I've implemented a rel="nofollow" rule on NQB for all comments, stats and other-party links across the site. If you run, b2evolution, this forum post can show you how to implement the same policy on your site: "Googles rel="nofollow" on Comment spam". If you run some other blog software, you'll find how to implement `rel="nofollow" here: "How to implement 'rel=nofollow'" at Dirson's google-blog.

This - the front edge of the brain, the most distant from the brain part of the visual analyzer. The retina receives light first , processes and transforms light energy into irritation - a signal that encodes all the information about what the eye sees . The retina is very complex and in their structure and function . Its structure resembles the structure of the cerebral cortex. The shell of the retina is very thin - about 0.14 mm.
