must hurt for M$
NBC to report NT hacks. Then again, I suppose the article wasn't about security but rather another triumph for deception and chicanery. For the 'good' guys this time.
FYI [thanks for the lowdown Mike Brunker

Gun control the smart way.
I abhor the idea of people taking away my right to own guns or impinge on said freedom. However, this approach is much better than a nation-wide movement. We Texans get to keep our guns and you Californians can get rid of yours.

Shots Fired at Santana High School.
MSNBC is reporting Shots have been fired at Santana High School in Santee, CA. There have been MULTIPLE kids calling into local TV stations in San Diego and MSNBC, Fox News, CNN Headline News is picking them up. It's odd really...some of these kids are pretty eloquent. Mixed reports are that 9 kids have been hit with a small caliber handgun out in the "quad" at the school. The gunmen was allegedly smiling the whole time.
Of course, as these things go, the truth never really comes out until weeks after the fact.

That faith-based missle defense thing again. Check it out, good-looking hack. I might put up a mirror if it gets changed.

when headlines go bad, yet again.
this will be rotated off the site soon, i'm sure, but it was good for a chuckle:

More news on the IIS exploit
After acknowledging the problem last week, Micro$oft is now saying that the backdoor in IIS... is a flaw. M$ Technet seems to have a fix
for this problem, delete the offending file! So, if systems are your bag, my advice is to start researching security
if you are running M$ internet server products (SQL 7, Exchange, IIS, Index Server, etc.).

According to MSNBC, Kozmo delivers to predominantly white parts of town.
This is a thorny issue all around. The company claims to target areas of high internet usage, but there's a whole host of factors that would lead to huge racial differences in those areas. I still believe one of the greatest things about the internet is that it's a place where race really
doesn't matter, but unfortunately the barriers to entry aren't exactly colorblind. MSNBC went so far as to produce some interesting maps
that support their claim pretty well though.

Jeez. After 4 and a half years of sitting in a jail cell, Kevin Mitnick was finally sentenced today
. The funny thing is, his sentence is shorter than the time he's already done. The story sounds like an injustice you'd read about at the amensty international site, but no folks, it happened in the Land of the 'Free'.
