So i haven't been privy to the details, but it seems that the 15th will be the last day Ruin will be at its current (awesome) location :( I guess the venue operators weren't happy with the turnout or something? Which makes me feel a little bit guilty since i haven't been there in over a month myself =/

So tonight is the second to last week of Ruin. Do i want to go to it, or do i want to watch the opening of the Olympics tonight and go to Ruin next week?

I haven't figured out if China's human rights record means i should be boycotting watching the Olympics or something, but it seems a little silly to me. I think the only thing low ratings would do would be to possibly reduce the income of whichever network bought the rights this time, and/or convince all the networks that the Olympics aren't worth as much and drive the bidding price down next time. Certainly i don't see what effect it would have on China at all.
