Because it's hard as crap to use the same cd in the two computers at once. And don't even THINK of simultaneously using two networked lappys! *i know it doesn't say that, this is funny. mod likewise.

The BBC reports  that Indonesian scientists are attempting to plug a mud-spewing volcano using chains of concrete balls. Hot mud and gas have been spewing out of the ground since May 2006; experts warn the torrent could continue for months, if not years, to come. Engineers will drop 1,000 1.5m-long metal chains into the mouth of the mud leak. Each chain has four concrete balls suspended from it; two with a 20cm diameter and two with a 40cm diameter.
The disaster is thought to have been triggered by the drilling work of gas prospectors PT Lapindo Brantas.
I wonder what security measures webmail providers like Yahoo or Hotmail are taking to secure their customer's e-mails; tape backups? RAIDs? do they backup live or once a week? This seems to be a subject no one wants to talk about. Until now I guess that webmail losses have been something like thousand times less frequent than... let's say hard drive crashes, so one could say that webmail is *very* safe.
Still, e-mail providers advertise with big storage space and lifelong e-mail addresses but I have not seen one praising with e-mail safety."
This can only mean good things for the FOSS in the UK."'The recently published Gowers Review of Intellectual Property, an independent review commissioned by the Government, recommended that patent rights should not be extended to cover pure software, business methods and genes. The Government will implement those recommendations for which it is responsible, and will therefore continue to exclude patents from areas where they may hinder innovation: including patents which are too broad, speculative, or obvious, or where the advance they make lies in an excluded area such as software.'
"The Government remains committed to its policy that no patents should exist for inventions which make advances lying solely in the field of software. Although certain jurisdictions, such as the US, allow more liberal patenting of software-based inventions, these patents cannot be enforced in the UK."
What ramifications does this have for recent issues such as the SCO/IBM/Linux debacle or companies such as Microsoft, whom rely on software patents for their business strategy. What about the impact for new developments in the UK?"
