Moving Day

Years ago, I helped a friend of mine out with advice regarding his Windows servers in his work environment. To show his gratitude, he allowed me to host this website on one of those servers for free.

A couple weeks ago, my friend informed me he had sold his company and no longer was managing those servers. I had the option of either paying for hosting or moving my site to another hosting provider.

Since I have been looking at ways to become more privacy oriented and conscious, I’ve decided that this is the time for me to look at hosting outside of the United States. What’s more, I wanted to begin moving all of my online presence away from what is known as the Fourteen Eyes surveillance network.

I also decided this was a good opportunity to essentially start over. Instead of migrating this site to a new location, I am going to build a new site from scratch and look at hosting this site as an archive.

To help find a hosting provider which I could trust with my data, I used the Privacy Tools website to research my options. They recommended a company called Orange Website, based out of Iceland. The pricing is comparable to other hosting options I’ve looked at, and the company is committed to privacy and free speech.

Since I’m starting a new site, I have also purchased a new domain for my site, medi-nerd.com. For domain hosting, I have chosen to go with Njalla, As with Orange Website, Njalla is privacy focused and outside of the Fourteen Eyes membership as it is based in Nevis.

For now, this site will remain online while I determine where I will archive it to, but there will be no new posts or updates to it.

New Orleans – Day Two

I’m sorry. I couldn’t clear my mind in time.
The ACTUAL reason we are in New Orleans. 😀
Sam Heughan looks so chill.
Have I seen it all? I may have seen it all.
Paging the 2007-2012 Bluecoats.
This may be the most creative cosplay ever.
This crossover was…unexpected.
This wins for most genius cosplay.

New Orleans – Day One

Starting off the day with brunch at The Ruby Slipper.
On the corner of Jackson Square
America sure loves its racist asshole leaders
When you make a living as a street performer, your dedication rivals that of the postal service
The reason we’re on New Orleans
An…interesting way to get around the convention
Tonight’s dinner at the Cochon Butchery – Carolina style BBQ sandwich with potato salad and a local Pilsner

Public Domain Day 2020 | Duke University School of Law

Unfortunately, the fact that works from 1924 are legally available does not mean they are actually available. After 95 years, many of these works are already lost or literally disintegrating (as with old films5 and recordings), evidence of what long copyright terms do to the conservation of cultural artifacts. In fact, one of the items we feature below, Clark Gable’s debut in White Man, apparently no longer exists. For the works that have survived, however, their long-awaited entry into the public domain is still something to celebrate. (Under the 56-year copyright term that existed until 1978, we would really have something to celebrate – works from 1963 would be entering the public domain in 2020!)
