Weekly (Sort of) Links of Interest

Like a bad clock, a week and a half later, we give you another installment of Links of Interest.

Our first link of interest comes straight out of our referral logs. Its not often we see a Hungarian website in our logs, so I decided to check it out. I cant read Hungarian and babelfish does not have a Hungarian translator, so I have no idea what it says. There was one word I did understand and it said Music. Nice of them to link to our site. While my interest in the Hungarian words is more curiosity than anything else, it was the pictures on the site that caught my eye.

I am not sure if these are original works or comments on others work, but I spent quite a lot of time just going through the site to look at the art work. So, check out this Hungarian Blog to see some incredible fantasy artwork.

Our second site comes by way of an accidental encounter. I was trying to find the font used in the Punisher Comic Book and ran across Iconian. This cool website is a comic geeks dream. It has tons of free fonts in tribute to the comic books that inspired their design. It was fun just going through the list to see which Fonts I could associate with the appropriate comic book.

Our third link comes to us from a story I was reading in the latest copy of Wired Magazine. I really wanted to talk about this article and it turns out you can read the whole thing online on the Wired Website. The article is a short brief on a lawsuit filed by the MPAA against Shawn Hogan for allegedly downloading Meet The Fockers. It turns out that not only does Shawn own this movie on DVD, but he happens to be the CEO of a multimillion Internet company called Digital Point. You may be aware of their largely popular Webmaster Forums.

Rather than paying the $2500 settlement fee also know as extortion money, Shawn has decided to take this to court even if it costs him hundreds of thousands of dollars. I am glad the MPAAs illicit RIAA like tactics of suing its own customers is going to be heard in a court of law. Suing your customers is not a smart move and it really needs to stop.
