RIAA goes after file-sharing on Internet2 – Getting in there early I see. “Researchers at Internet2 once demonstrated they can download a DVD-quality copy of the popular movie “The Matrix” in 30 seconds over their network, a feat they said would take roughly 25 hours over the Internet.” Man that sounds like fun.

No Encryption for RF-ID Passport – What a bunch of eedjits. “This will enable identity theft and put Americans at some risk when they travel internationally.”

“My auto condom fitter guarantees nothing more than a brief second’s pause in the action, with a bit of practice the man’s partner probably won’t even notice that he had reached over and used his trusty auto condom fitter.” I’d buy that for a dollar!

Anyone use WordPress 1.5 and hate the Dashboard? – “I got tired of the fat, resource-hogging DashBoard shipped with WordPress 1.5.

P.S. Looking for any old rope?
