If my family's name is "Palin" this means she owns the rights to my daughter if she's was named Sarah? What about the "prior" art argument? According to howmanyofme dot com there are 790,847 named Sarah, 1,178 people with the sir name of Palin, and 3 people named Sarah Palin. Do the other 3 people have to pay a licensing fee if the former governor get her patent (very likely give the behavior of the U.S. PTO of late)?
I don't know... how long would it take to write new filter rules and reconfigure a few handfuls of firewalls? Probably about the same time it took to post this article!!!!
I can imagine all those borderline acrophobics freaking out about 10 secs after the plane leaves the ground. Unless, like one previous poster, the floor and the ceiling are covered with boxes and cables, etc.. Airbus' head of research and technology, Axel Krein must not have taken into account that many people may not be too keen on being constantly reminded that they sitting in a "glass" airplane 30,000 feet in the air - especially when they're flying over the ocean with no land in site. Talk about feeling like a canary in a coal mine!

One of the funnest games I've ever played! Had various modes, vehicles, various turrets and sensors - and sniping was very fun! HELLO STEAM???
According to the website, Konqueror (3.5.10) isn't supported. One gets bumped to a page informing one of this advent and you are further instructed to use Safari or Firefox (2 or 3). Way to go Novell/SUSE! Gotta love a website promoting a product that doesn't support the primary webbrowser provide by said product maker! Sheesh!
Perhaps you might garner the services of a willing post-grad or similar colleague to assist you! I can't believe some individual, at least from time to time, would not be willing to summerize your entries for lay persons so that they may be able to wrap their heads around the legal proceedings and their meanings therein more readily. I personally have had to do this in my profession. Unlike your situation, however, I did this in the context of my profession in the performance of my duties (critical care cardiac RN). So, I trust the most people fully understand the constraint you've mentioned between pursuing your case load while posting entries in your blog. Is there no viable remedy to this situation? Can anyone of those possibly qualified "/,'ers" perhaps contribute to this end?
So the heat is on and the RIAA find themselves in a less than desirable position - e.g. their "respondant superior" entity, aka SafeNet was breaking the law by "invading peoples privacy" (by their own admission) . So the RIAA and their members throw SafeNet under the bus and exclaim their amazement as to the unsavory tactics that their "employee" has been conducting. Like they had no clue that this was going on??? Ya Right, that's the ticket.
Tell it to the judge!
If you read just one thing over the holiday break, make sure it's Peter Gutmann's cost analysis of Windows Vista, here. It's an eye opening 20 minutes. Gutmann describes in great detail the various measures Microsoft has taken to lock down Windows on behalf of Hollywood. This isn't a comprehensive look at all of Vista's DRM — Gutmann barely touches on Microsoft's new activation framework; (this is beyond the scope of his enquiry.) In order to playback HD-DVD and BluRay content, Microsoft agreed to degrade video and audio functionality in Windows. Gutmann points out that when "premium" content is being played, component video — YPbPr — and S/PDIF interfaces are disabled. Third party hardware that fails to obey these orders may have it's "certified" status revoked by Microsoft — leaving the user with minimal (eg VGA) functionality. With the introduction of tilt bits, all of the designed-in resilience is gone. Every little (normally unnoticeable) glitch is suddenly surfaced because it could be a sign of a hack attack. The effect that this will have on system reliability should require no further explanation. In short, the Vista specifications explicitly cripple the PC."
