They were building this 'weapon' in an abandoned garage (used to be shorty's) in Schaghticoke NY.

Thats twice in the national news in less than a month. The other time being for the dipshit cool kids on the yearbook staff leaving mean captions in the book that they meant to remove before printing.

The only sensible course of action in this instance is similar to what google did. Respond to all requests coming in from Belgian IP addresses with a message stating why they can no longer access yahoo services. Allow the Belgian govt, to cut of thier own nose to spite their face.

As someone who has done quite a bit of hiring over the past few years, ranging from interns in college to senior level developers with 20 or more years of experience in the field, I will tell you once you have some significant job experience to hang your hat on, the difference between a masters and a bachelors is fairly insignificant. Hopefully you are getting some real world work experience now as an intern while working on your degree. The only time where the difference between a masters degree and a bachelors degree has made a difference in our interview process is in deciding between similar entry level candidates with little to no job experience. Also in hiring interns we will typically favor masters students over undergrad students.
