eldavojohn writes "A lizard long served on the menu in the Mekong Delta has recently caught the attention of scientists when it was noted that all animals in the species appeared identical as well as female. The species appears to be a hybrid of two other species (like a mule or liger). But the curious thing is that this hybrid isn't sterile — it reproduces asexually. The species, known for some time in Vietnam, has now officially been named Leiolepis ngovantrii."

Scyth3 writes "A man is suing his neighbor for not turning off his cell phone or wireless router. He claims it affects his 'electromagnetic allergies,' and has resorted to being homeless. So, why doesn't he check into a hotel? Because hotels typically have wireless internet for free. I wonder if a tinfoil hat would help his cause?"

Craigslist requires that you have a ReverseDNS on the connecting IP address that matches the domain in the FROM HEADER, not the HELO/EHLO. That's insane. Only large corporations can do that in the first place.

Wowee zowee... I never realized that my half-dozen computers and my big, lazy butt qualified as a large corporation. But since I've had proper reverse DNS on my mail server for that last 5 years, that's obviously the only explanation.

Dynamically binding, you realize the magic. Statically binding, you see only the hierarchy.
