A silly little thing which improves code ergonomics — when making lists of repeated entries, make pyramids:
5,000 Icelanders are in the stadium watching the game. If the equivalent percentage of the Brazilian population were in a stadium watching a game, that would amount to roughly the entire population of Uruguay (give or take the entire population of Iceland)

@vfrmedia @elomatreb @saxnot the takeaway is that the method of enforcement and intimidation worked. in the First World at least, where there is money to be made. here in Brazil they seem to not care about it, yet. and even then kids didn't get into media torrenting (game piracy is still rampant, as far as I can tell).
my gut feeling is that P2P moved out of the mainstream. back in the mid 2000s every non technical person did it, at least where I lived. now I see a lot of kids who don't bother and just consume whatever YouTube, Netflix and Spotify provide them.
