Have not met a democrat with an altar to any human being at all.

You forgot the /sarcasm tag. Or do you not have a single friend or relative obsessed with the anointed One, Barack H. Obama? You oughta see my my grandmother 'n laws Obama shelf.

The nightly news turned into a BHO worship service for many during the campaign. Chris Matthews Obsession culminated into an Orgasm on a live news show while speaking of Him. Thank God he kept his clothes on and his willy in his pants while his leg was tingling.

Praise be to Obama.

I have experienced 0-60 in half a sec in a Prius when I was rear ended by a Hummer when i pulled out in front of him. The airbag deployed and knocked off my beret, and my latte scalded my lips and soul patch, as I was about to take a sip. I am dead now but that is better for the planet because now my carbon foot print will be nil. Sadly though it destroyed my Obama/Biden '08 bumper sticker.

Fuck my Karma, its funny b/c its true. Stereotypes save time. You know you have seen someone like this at a stoplight downtown, blaring NPR on their way to a Yoga class

Adobe Chided For Insecure Acrobat Reader 179

Posted by kdawson
from the old-skool-distribution dept.
The Register covers security firm Secunia calling out Adobe for its insecure distribution practices with regard to Adobe Reader. (Here is Secunia's note.) The accusation is that the way Adobe provides Reader extends the software's window of vulnerability once an exploit has begun to circulate. Version 9.1 of Reader, which is what you get when you visit the official download site, contains 10 vulnerabilities that were patched by later releases. "Adobe Systems has been taken to task for offering outdated software on its downloads page that contains dozens of security vulnerabilities, several of which are already being exploited in the wild... Visitors who obtain Adobe Reader from the company's official downloads page will find that it installs version 9.1 of the program on their computers, even though the most recent version was 9.1.2 at time of writing. That could put users at considerable peril given the number of vulnerabilities fixed in the two iterations that have come since 9.1, complains Secunia..."

Law of Armed Conflict To Apply To Cyberwar 242

charter6 writes "Gen. Kevin Chilton, the head of STRATCOM, just declared that the Law of Armed Conflict will apply to cyberwar, and that the US won't rule out conventional (read: kinetic) responses to cyber-attacks. This means that we consider state-supported 'hackers' to be subject to the Geneva Conventions and Customary International Law, including the rules of proportionality and distinction (i.e. if we catch them, we can try them for war crimes). Incidentally, it also means we consider non-state cyber-attackers to be illegal enemy combatants, which means we can do all kinds of nasty stuff to them."

"Seven anti-war protesters were arrested in Philadelphia on Saturday during a protest rally and march which targeted the Army Experience Center, a high-tech recruitment center which uses PC and Xbox games and simulations to attract potential recruits...

It looks like they meant anti-war ralliers or war protesters, not anti-war protesters. The media in general constantly seems to repeat this phrase incorrectly.

Linux Reaches 1% Usage Share 414

je ne sais quoi writes "The April data is out for the Net Applications 'market share' survey of operating systems (more accurately referred to as a usage share). For the first time, Linux has reached 1%. This past month the Linux share increased by 0.12% which is well above the average monthly increase of 0.02%. Historically, the Net Applications estimate of market share has been lower than that of other organizations who measure this, but the abnormally large increase reported this month brings it closer to the median estimate of 1.11%. For other operating systems, Windows XP continued its slow decline by 0.64% to 62.21%, whereas Vista use is still increasing to 23.90%, but its rate of adoption is slowing. That is, this month's increase of 0.48% is well below the 12-month average increase of 0.78% and down from the peak rate of increase of 1.00% per month on average in January-February 2008. The total Windows share dropped to 87.90%. Mac OS use decreased slightly to 9.73% from 9.77%, but usage share of the iPhone and iPod Touch combined increased by 0.1%."

+ - Does WIndows 7 support ARM processors?->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Warren East, president and CEO of U.K. processor licensor ARM Holdings plc has been dropping hints about Microsoft Windows and ARM while concluding that he, of course, could not possibly comment. The supposed lack of the Windows operating system running on ARM processors is apparently a problem for ARM in the netbook computer business, according to this story in EE Times Europe. The article indicates that support for ARM processors could already be in place and just awaiting Microsoft's launch of Windows 7, or some other convenient point thereafter, for the announcement."
