+ - Community College Degree Curriculums?

Submitted by
sinthetek writes "I am searching for CS degree curriculums that aren't heavily rooted in proprietary technologies (preferably one with transferable credit for *nix classes). Does anyone know of any community colleges or technical schools that have a selection of transferable credit courses on Open technologies anywhere in the continental US? I've only found one or two and I am having to download PDFs to even find out most of the time so any recommendations or insight would be appreciated, thanks!"

+ - MSNBot "MSIE 7.0" UserAgent legitimacy? 10

Submitted by
sinthetek writes "I noticed today that recently (around 02:56:18 EST on New Years Eve at least by my logs) MSNBot UserAgent strings started to indicate that it's requests are coming from a an IE 7 browser rather than it's usual/previous 'msnbot' useragent string. I went through several years of logs to confirm that it has always previously been some variation of "msnbot".

My question is whether there is likely a legitimate reason for using this string (ie a mistake due to shared code etc) or if there is a more sinister agenda to corrupt web statistics in an attempt to rally more support/development for MSIE7 with the seeming obviousness as potential 'plausible deniability' escape hatch?"

Gosh that takes me back... or is it forward? That's the trouble with time travel, you never can tell." -- Doctor Who, "Androids of Tara"
