it took those clowns a month to install cable and internet when i moved into this apartment. after they finally got their act together, they promised me three months of discounted rates. upon receipt of the second bill, they had jacked up my rates and retroactively charged me for my first month's discount.

their bankruptcy serves them right for adding an extra 20$/month to my bill for adding the word "digital" to the name of my cable service.

Rocket Hobbyists Prevail Over Feds In Court Case 546

Posted by kdawson
from the up-up-and-away dept.
Ellis D. Tripp writes "DC District Court judge Reggie Walton has finally ruled in the 9-year old court case pitting the model rocketry community against the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The ruling is a 'slam dunk' for the rocketry community, stating that the BATFE ignored scientific evidence and overstepped its bounds by classifying ammonium perchlorate composite propellant (APCP) as an 'explosive.' Effective immediately, the BATFE has no legal jurisdiction over hobby rocket motors, and a federal Low Explosives User's Permit will no longer be needed in order to purchase APCP motors. The full text of the Judge's decision is reproduced at the link."

To be a kind of moral Unix, he touched the hem of Nature's shift. -- Shelley
