isoHunt For years isoHunt's founder had been in legal battles with conglomerates of IP rights holders over allegations of copyright infringing activity. A settlement with MPAA was reached in 2013, that stipulated $110 million reimbursement for damages and the site's closure that followed on October 21, 2013. By the end of October, 2013 two sites with content presumably mirrored from isohunt.com were reported in computer media. One of them — isohunt.to — became a de facto replacement of the original site. History isoHunt was founded in January 2003 by Gary Fung, a Canadian national.

Download: Photoshop Brushes Series 40 15 watercolor and other wet brushes By Dave Nagel I've had a surprising number of requests for a collection of watercolor-style brushes for Adobe Photoshop. But with the limitations of Photoshop's paint engine, that's a bit of a trick. Unlike programs like Corel Painter and Synthetik Studio Artist, Photoshop doesn't give you the ability to create anything that truly behaves like wet media with spreading, smearing and diffusing effects.
Portal:Software (Pictured left: An example of simulation software (CircuitLogix)) Simulation software is based on the process of modeling a real phenomenon with a set of mathematical formulas. It is, essentially, a program that allows the user to observe an operation through simulation without actually performing that operation. Simulation software is used widely to design equipment so that the final product will be as close to design specs as possible without expensive in process modification. Simulation software with real-time response is often used in gaming, but it also has important industrial applications. When the penalty for improper operation is costly, such as airplane pilots, nuclear power plant operators, or chemical plant operators, a mock up of the actual control panel is connected to a real-time simulation of the physical response, giving valuable training experience without fear of a disastrous outcome.
The Pirate Bay trial Swedish prosecutors filed charges on 31 January 2008 against Fredrik Neij, Gottfrid Svartholm, and Peter Sunde, who ran the site; and Carl Lundström, a Swedish businessman who through his businesses sold services to the site.

One case involving music files was later dropped by the copyright holder who made the file available again on the website of The Pirate Bay. Search Distributions. Use GNU/Linux.
