I don't even get a shopping card from our local supermarket because I don't think it's necessary for them to have my personal information...

I've never given my personal information on one of those "loyalty" cards. When asked for a phone number, I'll typically give 867-5309. I've never, ever had anyone question it.

+ - Judge Kimball rules; Novell owns Unix copyrights->

Eggplant62 writes "In his most damaging ruling yet, Judge Kimball today released his ruling in the SCO v. Novell case, saying that it is his belief that after examining the all the documentation and motion practice and after the hearings earlier this year on various summary judgment motions, the jist is: "[T]he court concludes that Novell is the owner of the UNIX and UnixWare Copyrights." Of course, Groklaw is covering the story and broke the news just over a half hour prior to this submission.

There is also a ruling in SCO v IBM on summary judgment motions but the actual rulings are yet to become available. Keep your eyes peeled."

coondoggie writes "If you signed up for the federal or your state's Do Not Call Registry a few years ago, you might want to thing about refreshing it. Pennsylvanians this week got a wake up call, so to speak from the state's Attorney General Tom Corbett who kicked off a public awareness campaign designed to remind people what many have forgotten or never knew — that the 2002 law set registrations to expire after five years. That is of course unless you want to start hearing from those telemarketers as you sit down to dinner. Corbett said about 2 million people signed up in the immediate aftermath of the law taking effect and those who do not act by Sept. 15 will have their numbers dropped from the registry on Nov. 1. The Pennsylvania action is a reminder that the National Do Not Call Registry has a five year life span as well. The Federal Trade Commission is set to being a nation campaign in Spring 2008 to remind all US citizens to refresh their federal Do Not Call Registry standing. http://www.networkworld.com/community/node/18066"

To err is human -- to blame it on a computer is even more so.
