I don't trust the locksmith. So I actually fit the lock myself, and when it comes to getting keys cut the locksmith has no idea where the lock for the key I am getting cut is going to be located because I don't tell them or even give them my home address. In fact they don't even know my name because I paid in cash.

That because there where two products, Cool Edit and Cool Edit Pro. When Adobe purchased the software they dropped Cool Edit and turned Cool Edit Pro in to Audition. Interesting that you can run Audition in Wine, I have been running it in a VirtualBox Windows XP VM for some years now, but Wine would have lower overheads...

No OJ was found not guilty because the prosecution spent ages building up the case that the murder wore a particular pair of gloves, when those gloves failed to fit in front of the jury their was reasonable doubt and the prosecution was lost as there was now reasonable doubt and the state of California required the prosecution to prove the case beyond reasonable doubt.

No but then as far as I am aware no Jews have murdered a significant proportion of the editorial team of a publication for printing pictures of Moses or Abraham, ... Neither am I aware of any Jews demanding that such pictures never be published.

The problem is Sunni Muslims take offence at *ANY* depiction of the prophet, whether it mocks Islam or not. They would like to make it illegal for me to ever depict Muhammed visually. This is whole and totally unacceptable to myself and hundreds of millions of others.

The Christian religion is offended by the claim of Islam that Jesus is not the son of God. The inescapable conclusion of which is No Charlie Hebdo, no Koran.

One could further note that if Muslims claimed that Christianity was offensive to them because it claimed that Jesus was the son of God, it was around first, so it is still a fail on behalf of Islam.

If I am a Christian, Islam is an open insult against my religion (it denies that Jesus is the son of God). So apparently I have the right for protection from such open insults, which would from your reckoning amount to the banning of Islam and the Koran.

Hum how does that work exactly?
