Now for my day. Great start, I got totally RAK'd by Sara Ellis. I'm really having an awesome week. Pity I don't have anything to pass on as well. This is what I got:

The bows look awesome. Can't wait to get scrapping.

Piracy: whoa did it get heated on the Digital Dish today!!! Seems that noone else in the scrapping community ever download anything. Isn't that just great. I look at piracy in a couple of ways.
1: No way in hell would I ever share my digital purchases with other people. The designers work hard and probably don't make all that much designing digital scrapping supplies. I paid my money so they are for me only. I also don't make any money from the stuff I download, currently I am downloading Survivor China because the dumbass channel 9 network won't show it here until after it's all finished in the US and we know who wins anyway. So I get my fix illegally, and I'd do it honest way if I could but the CBS website won't let me watch, wrong region or whatever.

2: People who share everything, sell downloaded DVD's, kits, MP3's etc...are scum. Easy. They are the real pirates. My Survivor fix is hardly bringing down the CBS network.

I love some of the replies I got on The Digital Dish:

Stealing is stealing. You cannot justify it.

Very nice Megan. I'm sure the various store owners and designers will be very interested to hear your stance on piracy.

Ohhhh, ok, you post as yourself so that's you're going to justify being a pirate? Whatever.

Well ANON's at least I have the balls to post as myself. All the designers I have ever bought from can go check my account and see if there were any extra downloads, here is a list of designers I have purchased from:

If any of these designers have a problem with my views on piracy I am only too happy to discuss it. Email me here

I fail to see the connection between downloading Survivor and being a pirate? Or how about these gutless anon posters tape Survivor for me and send it to Australia? Cos that's about my only other option.

I might just email all the designers I have purchased from too and ask them about my views on piracy. What an interesting discussion, wonder how many of our designers download movies? And would these anon posters stop buying from them if they knew they did?

And in case anyone is wondering, my copy of CS3 is a legal copy that my husband uses for work.

And finally I did a Halloween page. YAY, pity we don't celebrate Halloween here like other countries do. We just had a Halloween bash one year at Dave & Kims. Green wasn't really a great Halloween choice but it's Deke's fave colour. I'll post all our pics from that night on Halloween.
