05.01.02 2600 IRC SERVER BACK ONLINE
We've gotten a replacement server and provider for our IRC network. Everything should work exactly as before - simply connect to irc.2600.net using any IRC client. The server had been offline since Friday.

05.01.02 SKIPPING COMMERCIALS IS STEALING ACCORDING TO TURNER CEO
It was inevitable. The broadcast industry is now describing people who skip over commercials as thieves! And with new technology like HDTV and insane laws such as the DMCA, they may very well make it stick in the future.

05.02.02 H2K2 VOLUNTEERS SOUGHT

05.14.02 EXPANDED "OFF THE HOOK" POSTPONED
We've been hit with the usual WBAI scheduling snafu. The previously announced three hour "Off The Hook" fundraising show has been postponed until Tuesday, May 21 at 7 pm ET. In addition, we will join forces with the program which follows ("Nuff Said") which will add an additional two hours to the program. So, to sum up, "Off The Hook" will be on next week starting at 7 pm for an expanded fundraiser and we will be staying on the air until midnight in conjunction with the "Nuff Said" program. We hope you show your support for this program and for the station it airs on. "Off The Hook" can be heard over WBAI 99.5 FM in New York City as well as over the Internet at www.2600.com/offthehook.

05.31.02 MPAA "CRUSADES" AGAINST FILE-SHARING
In an apparent attempt to link the MPAA's actions on the Internet to the European invasions of the "Holy Land" in the 11th-13th centuries, the research company Viant released a report entitled "The Copyright Crusade II" about music and movie sharing online.
