Now I've heard everything

Just when you thought you had seen or heard it all along comes something like this. Please make the bad man stop!
Chris Garret was murdered in the line of duty in 2004. He was nominated for the Cross of Valour but denied it because the trial of his killer held up the application until the 2-yr time limit lapsed. http://www.nationalpost.com... That such a callous and automatous application of the rules is even possible leaves me dumbstruck. There is an online petition to correct this: http://www.petitiononline.c... Please take a moment to sign. Dave Just because I ......

Ed Bott over on ZDNet was installing a new OS. Being an experienced techno-wonk he used the following steps to ensure a smooth installation: I made sure I had a CD containing the latest released version, placed that CD in the drive, and restarted. The system detected the CD, launched the boot files, and allowed me to create a new partition to install the OS files. I answered a few questions and then let the installation proceed automatically. After everything completed (well under an hour), I created ......

Oh come on! I haven't gone postal on anyone for a while and then this caught my eye. Look Don, just because some first level extranet help desk person suggests that maybe you use some kind of memonic for your complex passwords does not mean that they are advocating poor security practices. You gave an example of a password you wanted to use as “qKa5$KucX#lD”. Correct me if I am mistaken but I'm almost certain you don't memorize a password like that. And if you're even remotely similar ......

A poster on Slashdot was worried about the fact (?) that companies don't hire older programmers. He's 27. That's not the funny bit though. It triggered the following comments as follow-up: <snip> by Anonymous Coward on Wednesday March 02, @05:24PM (#11828402) This is news to me since I'm a programmer in my 50's and considered a youngster on my project. So as an insider, when is Duke Nukem Forever going to ship? </snip> ROTFL! DaveJust because I can... ......

You may or may not have seen this: http://weblogs.asp.net/bhou... Kevin Downs, the creator and sole developer (I believe) of NDoc has thrown in the towel. Some of his reasons: The development and release of NDoc 1.3 was a huge amount of work, and by all accounts widely appreciated. Unfortunately, despite the almost ubiquitous use of NDoc, there has been no support for the project from the .Net developer community either financially or by development contributions. ......

The Spanish American War lasted for about four months back in 1898. The US government imposed a 3% tax on telephone service to help pay for it. It was essentially a tax on the wealthy as the telephone was definitely a luxury item affordable only by the well-to-do. One hundred and eight years later, they figure it's time to stop collecting. I smell refund! DaveJust because I can ......

Aparently not. Via Paul Mooney's blog. US Congress has just raised the national debt limit to nine trillion dollars. Don't you wish you could just raise your credit limit when you run out of available funds? Only five years ago, the National Debt Clock was actually going backwards. It was turned off when the national debt stood at about $5,676,989,904,887.00 USD as many felt that it would send the wrong message and lead to complacency. The outstanding public debt as of 18 Mar 2006 at 07:03:24 AM ......
