Submission + - One-Click-Submission to German terror watchlist (www.bka.de) 5

An anonymous reader writes: As the German daily Der Tagesspiegel reported today, the German federal criminal agency has a new strategy to catch terrorists: they put up an informational web page about the terrorist group "militante Gruppe" ("militant group") and now look at their web logs. If someone clicks on that link, his IP address will be investigated and he will be put on the terror watchlist. It would be utter madness of us to ask you to click on THIS LINK to put a billion people on their list so we are not even going to mention the URL. In case you find it, do not click on it! Thank you.

Submission + - Apple fails to deal with change to NZ DST

NTDaley writes: Debian may not have pushed their update for the NZ daylight savings change, but Apple has failed to deal with it at all. Their website instructs users to change the time manually, which is obviously inadequate for people who have to administer a large group of computers, or who need to have accurate times for other timezones. Fortunately a third party has created a fix for the problem.

Diplomacy is the art of saying "nice doggy" until you can find a rock.
