ACTA in a Nutshell –
What is ACTA? ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.
Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”
What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Also, please remove my name from the top of the auto-generated post script if you repost this. I didn't know it did that.
Yep, I moved to Tumblr for good, and even though I wish I knew how to make those posts appear over here...I don't (any help would be appreciated btw) :D
So...yeah. If you're so inclined you can find me in Tumblr and/or twitter under Nanaluvren. As always.
I won't be closing down this LJ just yet though....It holds precious memories of the last few years of LOST watching for me so it'll stick around for a long while ;P
So why has nanaluven been MIA for like...months!?
Well, because I made the unfortunate decision to get a new laptop around the time I moved for the summer hollidays (we have a family home in another country and every summer we basically get up and leave till September).
Between one thing and another I've spent about 2 weeks without access to the www which means that for the last few days I've been scrambling to get up to date with all I missed, and let me tell ya, there was a LOT of it. Also, as I may have mentioned before, I now have a Tumblr blog I devote most of my time to since it is not only LOST related but it allows me to post all sorts of weird crap I fancy and write very little ;P
Sheesh...I haven't been to my MySpace page since LOST ended *Jears*
Another crappy, lame excuse for not hanging around? The end of LOST hit me harder that I thought. It actually became uncomfortable to read about it for a while...so I didn't. So weird uh?
Anyways, I'm in the middle of my vacation and in about 2 weeks I'll leave for Japan where I will study/travel for a month. I'll do my best to post more often and, in case all I can manage is lurk, comment on my flist posts :D
If for some uncanny reason you want to hear from me more often than that, you are all welcome to check out my humble blog at http://nanaluvren.tumblr.com/
Love you guys, hope all is well.
PS: I'm getting serious LOST withdrawal lol. Is it August 24th yet?

It's over guyz........
Also got a Tumblr account that has taken over my life *sighs* This internet thing is dangerous lol. That is the main reason for being MIA lately....well that and my increasingly hectic RL.
Anyways, I'm still lurking, reading flist posts, watching LOST (and loving it) reading spoilers (loving them 'em even more) and Jearing all over the place at the thought of this jewel ending in just over 2 weeks (T _ T)
