Submission + - TSA investigages former air marshal for e-mail (

bfwebster writes: "Jeffrey Denning used to work as a Federal Air Marshal (FAM) for the US Transportation Security Agency (TSA). He quit the TSA last year, then was called up in the US Army Reserve and went over to serve in Iraq. This past March, while still in Iraq, he received (on his private e-mail account) an e-mail addressed to current and former FAMs which suggested they contact CNN, which was preparing a report on problems with the TSA; Denning thinks he may have forwarded that e-mail on to a few more FAMs. When he got home from Iraq earlier this month, he discovered that the TSA had launched an investigation to find out who sent that original e-mail to him. Needless to say, he is not amused."

Submission + - Technical Considerations For A Gaming Center

Anonymous Coward writes: "A year or so ago, Slashdot covered a question of some of the considerations an entrepreneur should take before starting a Cyber gaming cafe. My question is, What technical considerations should I take into... consideration?

What sort of server hardware, switches, and software should a potential cyber cafe take on? This would be a 20 workstation environment with an outgoing T1 line, and the potential for internal BYOC Wi-Fi access, as well as console gaming. Any other ideas are especially welcome."

Be careful when a loop exits to the same place from side and bottom.
