I've been known to rant in an unhinged manner about the ribbon and unity. Thing is, I don't wish either of them off my computers. I just wish they were an option rather than something that is hard to avoid. I've been dismissed as a curmudgeon but honestly I'm just trying to get shit done, and it's a pain in the ass investing the time in learning new UI habits just because someone else thinks a new way of doing things is so cool that it should be default, if not outright unavoidable. Some of us aren't just dicking around with our computers. For the record I loved Win95 and NT 4.0 because the taskbar was a long overdue feature which...btw...you don't HAVE to use if you don't like it.

Hugh Pickens writes "The Christian Science Monitor reports that devoted fans at the recent Star Wars Convention V, many dressed as Jedi knights, stormtroopers, or the indomitable Princess Leia, sat opposite one another for a series of 3-minute speed dates, in hopes of finding a connection with a fellow Star Wars enthusiast. 'Over the course of the three events, due to size and time, we turned away about 600 participants,' says Ryan Glitch. 'Yesterday, this room was packed. We had to keep shoveling people along.' Meanwhile in the main exhibition hall, a chapel was set up to allow fans to profess their love and devotion to each other in the form of commitment ceremonies. 'I've been told that we've had two commitment ceremonies from people that met at my event,' says Glitch adding that he saw eight additional couples at the convention made up of people who had attended his speed dating sessions."

A 12-year-old girl who was being assaulted by her mother's ex-boyfriend used some quick thinking by sending a message on her iPod to a friend's Facebook account for help. The friend was able to contact the girl's mother who then contacted the police. 42-year-old Raymond Ernest Cesmat was arrested and charged with two counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree. He is being held at the Dakota County Jail on $175,000 bail.
