If you are looking to get free educational materials on a Raspberry Pi you should check out: http://kalite.adhocsync.com/. Intern Jamie Alexander did a fabulous job getting the entire Khan Academy site including setting up accounts, watching videos, and doing exercise problems working on a Raspberry Pi.

Is it a dan yet?
This information is useless in terms of predicting a large attack in the short term.
If you flip a coin 100 times each time it has been heads, it doesn't mean the next time its going to be tails.
In the same way, just because lots of small attacks have happened without a large attack doesn't mean a large attack is about to happen.

Vertical response, mail chimp, etc.. all commercial email marketing companies include a tracker. Its really not all that much different than websites tracking you, knowing that you clicked on their page at such and such time, except this time you are looking at the page from your inbox.
Well this other kind of life is completely different. It's so different that we know it cannot possibly be related to all of the other Earth life that we've known about thus far, as there is nothing in common. That means abiogenesis (the spontaneous generation of life from precursor non-living materials) happened at least TWICE on just this one planet.
Actually it is related (the original bacteria had completely phosophorous in its DNA), the bacteria is not completely different (there are at least 5 elements in the DNA that are the same), and its quite possible that there the DNA is still comprised of some/mostly phosphorous. All that happened was that she took phosphorous based bacteria that was living in an environment already high in arsenic, and removed other phosphorous and added lots more arsenic, and it seems that the bacteria survives, and most probably some of the phosphorous has been switched in the DNA. Perhaps this article will remove some confusion: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/03/science/03arsenic.html?pagewanted=2&hp
Still that said, that there probably is some arsenic substituting for phosphorous in the DNA at all is quite a revelation.
carbon would be most likely harmless to them while phosphor might indeed be toxic,
Actually they found that they still thrive with more Phosphorous: From a nytimes article
Despite this taste for arsenic, the authors also reported, the GFAJ-1 strain grew considerably better when provided with phosphorus, so in some ways they still prefer a phosphorus diet. Dr. Joyce, from his reading of the paper, concurred, pointing out that there was still some phosphorus in the bacterium even after all its force-feeding with arsenic. He described it as “clinging to every last phosphate molecule, and really living on the edge.”

quick! someone funnel that money through a non-profit which doesnt have to disclose where the money comes from!
Why is someone with a name like swanktastic modded up so high. Rearranging the letters in your handle and you get swastika.
Its just like people like you to go through someones comment history just so you can claim that they do nothing but attack people all the time.
That sounds like something Hitler would say.
I run a top rated website (2m+ visitors a month) that runs Omniture and I'm jealous of these stats, and the internet averages that Omniture claims. They claim IE internet average is still 61.2%, ff 20.3%, safari 6.9% and chrome 6.9%. On our site though we are still seeing 79.8% IE including 6.2% ie6. I pray for the day when IE6 numbers are down to a level that we don't have to care what our site looks like for them.
Use firefox extension's password hasher (http://wijjo.com/PasswordHasher). Then you only need to remember one password but can use it for a variety of sites. If any one site's passwords get leaked, you dont have to go around an update your password for all other sites.
