+ - An Inconvenient (partial) Rebuttal->

Submitted by The_Wilschon
The_Wilschon (782534) writes "The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is running an article about a paper that might distress Al Gore just a bit. While this doesn't affect most of the evidence for or against global warming, it does blow a big hole in one of the supposed effects of warming.

A team of scientists have found that the economic damages from hurricanes have increased in the U.S. over time due to greater population, infrastructure, and wealth on the U.S. coastlines, and not to any spike in the number or intensity of hurricanes.

+ - Petition to open OS/2 source, round/2-> 1

Submitted by The_Wilschon
The_Wilschon (782534) writes "On September 25, 2005, OS2World.com sent a petition with 11,613 signatures to IBM, asking them to release some or all of the source code to OS/2. Oddly, given IBM's embrace of the Open Source movement, the letter was ignored. So, on November 19 of this year, OS2World.com sent a second letter. They have also opened up a second petition round in order to show even more support to IBM for their requests. In particular, the System Object Model (SOM), Workplace Shell (WPS), and OS/2 kernel could both spur new OS/2 development and provide some fresh ideas to the Free Software world."
