Concerning the encrytion/key issue.

No need to wipe drives when noone can even tell with any certainty that there's even an encrypted volume on the drive in the first place.

UPDATE:
Just for fun I did what I had never tried: I loaded a few .cbr and cbz files onto calibre and guess what Calibre DOES handle .cbr/.cbz comics and even mp3's (audiobook of course but if you feel so inclined you could use it as an itunes replacement...it just needs a few lines of code to understand your mp3 player as a book reader)

So, who would have though that caliber was so versatile it can handle and organize .pdf,.epubs, .mp3's and even .cbr's?...Joe you were not alone using a panzer tank as a flyswat...

---> QUOTE: "But when there's a book out there you really want to buy and there's no torrent for it, what do you do? Do you buy or do you just wait it out?"---> The short answer is neither, what you actually could do is to barter. You request the book in question on the torrent forums by offering books you already have in exchange. Also sites such as http://avaxhome.ws/
http://ebookee.org/

Will very likely have them.

Lastly books such as "Simulacra and Simulation" by Jean Baudrillard are, very hard to find on regular torrent sites but easier to find on sites such as the ones above. Sometimes you find true gems completely out of print such as "The soccer tribe" by Desmond Morris.

The ideal would be dedicating 10 minutes to the searches in different bookmarked sites then, if unsuccessful buy the book. If you do find it, read it and and up loving it, the best ethical approach would be going to the author's site and pay a donation equal to that of what the publisher would otherwise have stolen from them.



PS
Note on .cbr
This is ENTIRELY the opposite of books you always find the newest titles and most of the time the old ones I stopped buying comics loooooong ago and started going to the artist's/pencilller site and donate.

Photographer, sorry if our tone seemed angry. Please feel free to comment what ever information you may think we should have. Sometimes we just cant say everything, because there's a lot of ears out there and who knows which direction all this piracy is going to go. Your comments were 100% percent right. But when there's a book out there you really want to buy and there's no torrent for it, what do you do? Do you buy or do you just wait it out?

Didn't bother me a bit, just another good reason to have Calibre installed! For what I was using it for, which was organization and changing book cover art mostly, I guess I was using a sledgehammer to drive thumbtacks!

Hey guys,


C'mon I did not say---erm typed the "2 years behind" in a mean spirited way (no need to smear myself as I have been throroughly coated in the past by my impersonator). The comment seemed to have irked Lando, (come on Lando!) I never assumed
you could not understand calibre or the torrents
I actually took the time to gather the links (an extremely tiresome task if you think about it) to give you access to gems that are not published yet to gems in the .cbr format. At least we, the geek weirdos tend to find the art in a boring film of a crazy guy talking inside a car talking about things that never happened or not happened yet. Well we the weirdos know that there are books like that out there and the assumption of you wanting, seeking, obtaining them and finally tweaking them was supposed to carry the implication of you having that kind of skillfullness which is the analogous to what you do to the audience (me included) "hey bitches! If I throw you this bone is because I know you b-hyenas can chew it!" logic. Obviously I do not get offended by being metaphorically referred as a hyena (if anything I lately look more like a walrus) and I did not expect my comment to be mistook so here it is:

I suggested the links not because I wanted to imply you were ignorant but because I knew you could easily handle it.


Maybe I should use the late for the party without caps next time...(did I use caps at all?)



PS
If you do go to demonoid please stick to books &
stay away from the "Monica Mattos vs horses" section...it is not HD...

Thanks for finally giving a somewhat plausible description of EVE. As a player of three years and a Goon I have a very difficult time explaining why I am single when I will occasionally mention some girl named Eve in conversation and why this girl takes up so much of my time. When I meet other MMO players I get the same response of "Why would you play a game where you can lose everything?" My response to that is:"If your playing EVE and your not losing everything once in awhile, your playing it wrong." Yes you can play it safe and make profit but what good is that profit if the only thing it affords you is a game of no risks and no fun. When I try explaining how almost everything in the game has a PVP element to it other MMO players just don't understand. The market, mining, and now even that boring ass planetary interaction has PVP in it. It all creates an environment of antisocial shut-ins who are constantly on Jabber cursing the Russians who cannot understand them. Oh bless you EVE.
