RIAA Accused Of Coaching 15-Year-Old Witness In File Sharing Suit

Posted in General News at 7:19 pm by douglasd3

Apparently, the lawyers for the RIAA had contacted her [15 year old girl], urging her to testify against the defendants, her employers. Combined with the fact that no other person who testified could recall the defendants ever using the computer to listen to music, it certainly seems to support the story that they did not do so.

Fall 2005 Shananagins

Posted in Floor news at 5:59 pm by douglasd3

Ok, as the title states this post is going to be a log of the major shananagins on D3 during the fall of 2005.

First up we have the floor famous sling shot; I can’t give the event due justice, but the video can.

Second, we have the “poop too loud” sign, which I took a photo of and submited to Consumption Junction. AND THEY ACCEPTED IT!

Third, we have the lounge computer. After weeks of having windows and clean access make it so no one can go online, the me and the guys decided to remove windows and install ubuntu linux. Nothing like using school property to give M$ the finger.

P.S. Watch out for upcoming posts on tech news.

Hello world!

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:23 pm by douglasd3

Ok, this is the first time i’m doing anythin like this, so bare with me. This is the unoffical blog for the third floor of D wing of Duglas hall at Northern Illinois University. I have two things I want to make absolutly clear. 1. I AM NOT AN ENGLISH MAJOR, so sorry about any spelling or grammer mistakes that I will make. 2. I am doing this not to talk about crap like the menu downstairs, i am writing this because I’m the biggest nerd on the floor and i need to keep up that title while nerdifying my fellow floormates.

That said, our first peice of news (although too late) is that today is Grey Tuesday, so go out and download it while you can. For other news you’ll have to wait till the next post, Fall 2005 shanangins.
