Pirate Bay charges delayed

From Sydsvenskan (lit. "The South Swedish"):

The charges against the three suspects after the razzia on The Pirate Bay last year will be delayed even further.

Prosecutor Håkan Roswall has to June 1st to press charges, but tells magazine Ny Teknik [lit. "New Technology"] that he will request that the deadline be moved to October 1st.
***End of translation

This is pretty much what was indicated in The Local a few days ago. The article in Ny Teknik specifies the problem: there are encrypted disks. I find myself proclaiming "Wow, how unexpected" in an excessively sarcastic tone.

Prosecutor to press charges against TPB

Last week, prosecutor Håkan Roswall announced that he is pressing charges against TPB.

The Local has an article in English here. Good for me. I don't have to translate. :)

Heh, sorry about the comments..

Just like many of you, I was wondering why there were no comments at all on the blog. I mean, it's been read quite a number of times.. Well, it appears I had comment moderation turned on. And I never noticed the comments, so they were never approved. So, when I logged in today to add a post (which will probably be the one after this one), the new Blogger interface said in big letters: "401 unmoderated comments waiting" or something like that. Two hundred of them were spam. Luckily, they were the latest 200, so they were easily marked and rejected. Sorry if I managed to reject any valid comments in the process.

Anyways, so now there are about 200 comments on the blog. I'll try to read them through and answer them if I think it's still relevant. :P

(don't worry, comment moderation will now be turned off.)

Edit/addition: Today at 5:35 PM, I got over a hundred notifications proclaiming new comments on my blog. I was very excited.
