File-sharing the old-fashioned way

If you know where to look, you can find pretty much anything on the Internet. Even ebook readers craving new releases can sometimes find electronic copies of current best sellers somewhere in the file-sharing networks. But, apparently, the old-fashioned way is easier!! A brief story from the ABC this evening:

Queensland police have charged a couple with possession of tainted property following the discovery of more than 1,000 library books at their home… the couple, aged in their early fifties, have allegedly been collecting the booty since 2004.

How they managed to keep borrowing after a few dozen overdues is not mentioned!! Of course, if they were ebooks, they would have just expired or something 🙂

Still, a light-hearted note to mark the end of 2007. Happy New year!!
