Yes, I know - piracy is a 'no-no', it's a crime, yada, yada, yada...


On the other hand we have more practical approach. For example let's talk about books:

+ price
Sorry, but in many cases it's a big killer. You know, the funny thing is that I buy more books in English than in my native language because they are much cheaper although they are imported from abroad ^^;

+ availability in ones country (in any language)
Shipment is a killer as well, usually it costs much more than bought book ^^; (and yes, I like paperback books).

+ availability at all
Let's see... I wanted (and still want) to read this one book recommended to my by a friend and guess what - it's not in stock in any bookshop (even internet shops, and have in mind I'm talking about shops that can be trusted), neither as paperback nor as e-book -_-

Yes, piracy is wrong, but it's often happening for a reason (and I'm not talking about people doing it for money). So what can be done about this and by whom? Any thoughts?

Seems like I have to go to the doc again. I wonder if my ears heal at some point in time instead of reminding me they exist at least once a month. Damn them...
I had this 'little' medical procedure done two months ago. To be honest I'm not sure if I recovered from it. I still have problems with breathing and I don't think it's about allergies as doctor said. How can you 'catch' allergy just after you had medical procedure?
I just hope I heal soon enough. Having problems with your nose (and breathing) is not fun at all.
