Sooo.. Finally Someone's got the right idea =) makes me feel proud to be a canadian. Take this RIAA!

This i news article by the CBC (canada's own BBC, Canadian Broadcasting Corp.)and in the article, it clearly shows that the CRIA isn't afraid of P2P download, and state that it doesn't affect music sales at all!

Check it out guys! Later!

Good to hear the CRIA released that report. Now I hope that report will give some influence here in the Commonwealth Realm on the other side of the Pacific, but on the other hand, the Australian Record Industry Association has done jack all regarding P2P! They're all words, but no action! LOL!

Actually, I was wrong. I forgot the Kazza lawsuit that was over here. But I've never seen ARIA take single-person lawsuits...yet.

No Opinion BY CRIA

The article cited is just poll data. The CRIA has not stated that illegal file sharing is okay.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
