Well, something strange has happened. Actually, something has NOT happened and it is the lack of happening that is strange. Since May, I have not downloaded anything, apart from one software and a couple of music album. It has been 3 months without any movie downloads. What happened? Did I get Netflix? No. Netflix has a shitty selection, so I won’t touch it with a pole. Nothing special happened – I simply have had too much to do in terms of work, summer travels and family engagements. Downloading kinda fell into the background, not my choice but by coincidence. “I’m gonna check the tracker tomorrow” has been my plan the last few months. But it didn’t happen.
The only thing I am worried about is that my account might have been deleted, since I have not logged in for some time. Let me log in now and see… Hmm, my account seems to be gone. Let’s see if I can register again. Yup, that went well. OK, let’s rock & roll!!

So, did I download the entire new season 5 of Game of Thrones and use that as an excuse to post a pic of a lovely topless girl, namely Daenerys Targaryen? No on both accounts. I’ll watch this show on TV. However, the boss of HBO likes piratism and thinks it benefits the show. Just read this:
“…in response to a question about whether the network kinda-sorta regards the extensive theft of HBO’s flagship show, Game of Thrones, as a compliment, Bewkes said, “I have to admit it, I think you’re right.” The much-discussed fantasy series is HBO’s most popular, and “if you go to people who are watching it without subs, it’s a tremendous word-of-mouth thing,” the exec told investors. “We’ve been dealing with this for 20, 30 years—people sharing subs, running wires down the backs of apartment buildings. Our experience is that it leads to more paying subs. I think you’re right that Game of Thrones is the most pirated show in the world,” he said. “That’s better than an Emmy.”
