...and how many repeaters would you need to cross the Aussie Outback if the range is all of 1km?
Aha, you mean, the same way that most people got Facebook accounts? Because they had to check the wedding/baby/new puppy pictures of someone and then never used the account again?
Yup - same here. As a student, very few of my books were store bought. Most were blatant copies. Since then, as a professional, I have spent enormous amounts on books and software licences. To top it off - my father wrote geography text books and I also wrote a book or two. Over reacting on copyright infringement is crazy and does everybody, the writers included, a disservice.
Each Linux distribution is a different business entity, with different customers. Do you really believe that there should be only one Sirius Cybernetics Corporation that makes everything (badly)?
COBOL is heading to the Cloud and will get 72 virgins...
Yup, the little bit I used NetBSD, I liked it, but I like Fedora more.

You got to eat it with gloves or your hands will turn green.
It sounds like all one needs is a large electric bug zapper since they are already attracted to it.
It is easy to shoot accurately, if you know how. Don't try to hold the rifle still. It is impossible. If you try to hold it still on a target, then it will move in a little circle around the point you are aiming at and you will never hit the bulls-eye. The more you try to hold it still, the worse the movement will get. The trick is to find the target direction and point slightly above it, then move the rifle down, down, down, sloooowly and when you move over the target, squeeze the trigger. I hope this tip will save some newb from embarassment at the rifle range...
No, it is not luck. You got to pick your parents carefully.
What is this facebook thing everybody is talking about?
Hmm, even a single byte can be transformed into a copyrighted movie...
The US has been recording everything for decades already. A few days after the KAL 007 plane was downed, the USA released transcripts of the voice comms between the fighter pilots. Nuf sed.
