Yeah, today is the long-awaited SOPA/PIPA-protest day.

I am obviously totally against the heavy-handed censorship proposal, but am not turning the blog off.

After all, I had my four hours of darkness yesterday following the cPanel mishap in the afternoon.

And if the blog would have been switched off, I wouldn’t have been able to post this glorious rendition of American Pie. And not just ANY rendition of American Pie, but one with LOLcats in it!

Managed to mangle the password to the blog today and thus render this completely unreachable for a couple of hours.


The fact that cPanel can change the MySQL password came as a definitely unpleasant surprise.

Christopher Waltz as Hans LandaA great movie is perfected by its villain, to paraphrase the late Alfred H.

In my opinion by far the greatest villain of recent years has been Hans Landa, the intelligent and charismatic nazi played by Christopher Waltz in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds.

The smooth and suave villain is nothing but an opportunistic monster, who seems to take a significant delight in inflicting his person and ideals on others.
