I live in Norway, still find DST silly. If we could just skip it, i think it would be better. Time is such a fundamental thing, and in todays 24/7 society, i don't think DST makes a lot of sense. There are also jobs where people work in the evening and can be outside in the sunshine during the day. It might also be possible to negotiate earlier working hours, like 7:00-15:00 which seems to be quite common for builders among other things. I think really that employers should try to let people work when they are most productive, and for some people, that is in the morning. I, myself, work better in the evenings, but I don't really expect to be able to change the working hours that much. I think that in theory, most companies would benefit from having flexible starting hours between 7:00 to 9:00, as well as their customers, since there might be more hours with people in the office, and at the same time gives a bit more freedom to the employees. Meetings and such should primarily be scheduled within the 09:00 - 15:00 interval, but can be pushed outside, if customers requests it and employees are available. Sounds reasonable?

I am an administrator and sometimes a developer. I must say that i really don't like java applets, and I kind of love Mozilla for taking java plugin support out of the browser as default. As long as this helps remove java plugins in the long run, i am all for it. And i really think Mozilla should have a big cudos from everyone, for taking the heat for this.

Qedward (2499046) writes "A 27-year-old man from the West Midlands pleaded guilty on March 10 in a British court to hacking the website of a reproductive health services agency, obtaining the details of people who had registered on the website.

James Jeffery, of Wednesbury, pleaded guilty to two offences of gaining unauthorised access to a computer under the Computer Misuse Act of 1990, according to a statement from the Metropolitan Police Service. A sentencing date has not been set.

The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) said that it detected 26,000 attempts on March 8 to break into its website over a six-hour period. The website was also defaced with a logo of Anonymous, the hacker collective that saw several of its alleged highly skilled members charged earlier in the week by US authorities..."
