US drone lost over Iraq

US drone lost over Iraq - It seems it's only a matter of time before they shoot down a piloted plane (even if by accident). What are we still trying to accomplish over there and what would the reaction be if they succeed?

F*ckedEconomy?

F*ckedEconomy? Cuts in interest rates don't seem to be helping. Layoffs persist (and not just tech/dotcoms). The market bounces, but can it sustain itself? Some say the market will rebound in the 2nd quarter of next year, but these are the same people who saw an uptick coming this fall. Are we headed towards a recession, again? Lucent even had to sell their golf course.

It

It 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] (MSNBC is a Microsoft-NBC joint venture.)

Gun control the smart way.

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.

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.

MSNBC hacked.

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

U.S. population up 13% from 1990 to 281 million. Power shifts South in the House. Yikes!

MSNBC gained some weight.

MSNBC gained some weight. No, it's not a redesign but an evolution of MSNBC's homepage. Looks better than one before. Sigh. Where have all the real redesigns gone?

MSNBC calls Gore on his shakey environmental record and comments on how environmentalist groups are only recently endorsing him as election day jitters kick in.

"Israel declares war" I guess things have gone a little too far on both sides. Sad.

Kill the wabbit! Kill the wabbit!

Kill the wabbit! Kill the wabbit! I though the blood heads in that Saatchi art collection a few years back were the oddest artwork ever, but you know...I'm thinking this is it now.

"We are trying to understand why sex is the most searched for topic on the Internet."

"We are trying to understand why sex is the most searched for topic on the Internet." MSNBC is taking "what we believe is the most comprehensive cybersex survey to hit the Web," because this online fascination with sex is just baffling to them. I wonder if anyone will be giving honest answers -- I'm certainly not planning to ("yep, monkeys and Jell-O...").

More news on the IIS exploit

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.

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.

MSNBC is apparently blocking Mac access

MSNBC is apparently blocking Mac access to Windows MediaPlayer files, claiming that 'Windows Media Player for Macintosh is not currently available.' Interesting, since you can actually download it from here. Oh well, at least CNN gives me a choice.

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'.
