Pretty sure the meteor information is actually just waste data. False positives that the military has to detect and catalog whether they are given out the information or not.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
These sats are in geosynchronous orbit. In fact if the satellite launch detection system had a dark window where it wasn't getting coverage then it would be completely useless.
The shoebomber was stopped by passengers while the plane was in the air.
I saw a great segment on I think Discovery Channel about wolves vs dogs.
First, a piece of meat was tied to a length of rope and placed in a cage. Both the dog and the wolf ( on the outside of the cage, of course) were able to pull the meat out using the length of the rope.
Next, a piece of meat was tied to the rope, but the rope was then tied to the center of the cage, so no matter how hard the rope was pulled the meat would not move.
After a few tugs the dog ran over to the humans and looked to them for help. The wolf spent longer tugging on the rope, but eventually gave up and walk away, not even acknowledging the humans standing nearby.

There was too much micromanaging tactics right off the bat to hold my interest. If I had three spears attacking one guy I'd end up getting slaughtered in two rounds after two of his buddies showed up because I didn't keep my archer in exactly the right hex.
200 miles is the exclusive economic zone.
International waters are 24 miles out.
So monitor your children's computer usage.
I rather enjoyed it. My Fridays were spent backpacking, kayaking, bicycling, sometimes even hobby programming, or Getting Things Done like doing banking/other paperwork.
This sounds like the script to a herpes commercial.
No, you are completely wrong. Firefox's built-in auto update is disabled on Ubuntu. There is a built in update service which notifies you of updates automatically, pretty much the same way that windows does.
But does that mean on each machine or simply that computers on school property must be filtered?
If it's the latter, I'd recommend filtering things like myspace and facebook via the school's net connection
But to put filtering on the machines themselves is just asking for the students to break administrative restrictions on the laptops. And then some overexcited school administrator is going to press criminal charges for some random computer crime.
