yes, this is julian midgely's mirror which he put up after our
discussions on Campaign for Digital Rights (http://uk.eurorights.org)
the possibility with Jack is quite realistic i guess... *if* those in
power decide to take things to extremes (which after all has happened
before with a certain norwegian teenager and a russian programmer....)
i respect Erik's decision too, although i am willing to take the risk
myself as i believe we have a stronger position in the UK....
if by chance i do run into difficulty i'll look into getting a freenet
node or hosting in Germany - by the sounds of it we should all move to
Germany, they're the only ones with their heads screwed on the right
