Shooting At Canadian Parliament 406

Posted by Soulskill
from the be-safe dept.
CBC reports that a man pulled up to the War Memorial in downtown Ottawa, got out of his car, and shot a soldier with a rifle. The Memorial is right next to the Canadian Parliament buildings. A shooter (reportedly the same one, but unconfirmed) also approached Parliament and got inside before he was shot and killed. "Scott Walsh, who was working on Parliament Hill, said ... the man hopped over the stone fence that surrounds Parliament Hill, with his gun forcing someone out of their car. He then drove to the front doors of Parliament and fired at least two shots, Walsh said." Canadian government officials were quickly evacuated from the building, while the search continues for further suspects. This comes a day after Canada raised its domestic terrorism threat level. Most details of the situation are still unconfirmed -- CBC has live video coverage here. They have confirmed that there was a second shooting at the Rideau Center, a shopping mall nearby.

When I was having wireless issues on a new (to me) Thinkpad, I couldn't even get online to search for the problem.

Does it not have an ethernet port?

And don't you know better than to do any kind of major work on the *only* computer you have to hand?

Installing a completely different distro ended up fixing those wireless issues. The Windows installation Linux replaced had no such issues.

My Thinkpad was the other way round. No drivers available for WiFi (and sound) on Win7 - which ran like a three legged donkey anyway. Mint worked fine, likewise Backtrack. It's now happily running Kali.

I am the wandering glitch -- catch me if you can.
