] President Vladimir Putin blamed the explosion on Chechen

Soon America may find
Its young men in the sand
Where there casualty
Is just a number
In Iran

The President said let it ride
Islam be damned
Make your last stand
In Baghdad

Shout with me . . . ON MARS!!

I'm still loving every minute of this.. This is like the technology super bowl! Let me translate this to unix geek..

] For Spirit, part of the cure has been deleting thousands of
] files from the rover's flash memory -- a type of rewritable
] electronic memory that retains information even when power
] is off. Many of the deleted files were left over from the seven
] -month flight from Florida to Mars. Onboard software was
] having difficulty managing the flash memory, triggering
] Spirit's computer to reset itself about once an hour.

Cleaning out a directory with too many files ... ON MARS!!

] Two days after the problem arose, engineers began using a
] temporary workaround of sending commands every day to put
] Spirit into an operations mode that avoided use of flash
] memory. Now, however, the computer is stable even when
] operating in the normal mode, which uses the flash
] memory.

Single user mode ... ON MARS!!!

] "To be safe, we want to reformat the flash and start
] again with a clean slate," Adler said. That reformatting
] is planned for Monday. It will erase everything stored in
] the flash file system and install a clean version of the
] flight software.

PXE/bootp Automated Installs ... ON MARS!!!!

Alright guys, now just keep the webcam working... ON MARS!!!

Update: Looking at the press images section right now is a great reminder that we got way more then a webcam over there. Hot damn. Once these things start really moving around, I'll break out the RC car jokes!

Shout with me . . . ON MARS!!

DARPA funding to track people on Internet
Topic: Miscellaneous 9:58 am EST, Feb  4, 2004

] So far it has largely been used by US intelligence
] agencies to analyse the huge amount of information
] collected as part of the war on terror.
] "The government and international security agencies have
] a desire to find, track and sometimes arrest people,"

If this quote doesn't scare the hell out of you something is wrong. A desire to find and track people.... and sometimes arrest them. Why the hell do you need to find anyone in the world and be able to track them unless you have an active and justified investigation of them? And its scary how no one is reacting to this drastic change in policy for protection of the fatherland... sorry I meant homeland.

Just as the Iraqi Survey Groups goals changed (WMD to evidence of WMD to evidence of WMD related programs), so has the governments stance on how it will use info to "protect" us. (General info, no unique identifiers for a person to CAPSII to Ability to track everyone, but trust us, we won't abuse it)

Janet Nipple - OUCH!
Topic: Miscellaneous 1:58 pm EST, Feb  2, 2004

] "I'll get you naked by the end of this song," sang
] performer Justin Timberlake, moments before he ripped off
] Jackson's top, exposing a bare breast -- the nipple
] covered by a metal 'solar' nipple medallion.

Why oh why would someone do this to their nipple?

Janet Nipple - OUCH!

Whats funnier is Jimmy Carter's Response to this:

Its not everyday that a former president personally and publically calls you a dumbass

Mike Rowe sells his domain to Microsoft
Topic: Miscellaneous 3:54 pm EST, Jan 26, 2004

] Desler said Microsoft would cover Mike's costs of
] changing to a new Web site and redirecting traffic from
] the old site. Microsoft also had agreed to help the teen
] get Microsoft certification training and other gifts,
] including an Xbox game console, he said, and has invited
] Mike to a technology festival in March at the
] corporation's headquarters in suburban Redmond.

While I'm sure people will say he should have never given up the domain, fight the monopoly and all the jazz he hmade the right choice. Considering he's 17 and MikeRoweSoft is a pretty shitty name for a web design firm, he is getting more out of this than the 15 seconds of Intenet fame and keeping his domain name would have ever brought him

You are not African-American, You are White
Topic: Miscellaneous 12:47 pm EST, Jan 22, 2004

] A small group of Westside High School students plastered
] the school Monday with posters advocating that a white
] student from South Africa receive the "Distinguished
] African American Student Award" next year.

] The students' actions on Martin Luther King Jr. Day upset
] several students and have led administrators to
] discipline four students.
] The posters were removed by administrators because they
] were "inappropriate and insensitive," Westside
] spokeswoman Peggy Rupprecht said Tuesday.

WTF is this? It seems that Blacks professing they are "African American" is prefectly ok, but for a white guy to profess his nationality, it is "inappropriate and insensitive." What kind of bullshit double standard is that? If anything he is more African-American they any of these people: He was born in African, he lives in America. How many of these other students running for African-American Student of the year can say that?

You are not African-American, You are White
