Disputed Island Disappears Into Sea 460

RawJoe writes "India and Bangladesh have argued for almost 30 years over control of a tiny island in the Bay of Bengal. Now rising sea levels have ended the argument for them: the island's gone. From the article: 'New Moore Island, in the Sunderbans, has been completely submerged, said oceanographer Sugata Hazra, a professor at Jadavpur University in Calcutta. Its disappearance has been confirmed by satellite imagery and sea patrols, he said. "What these two countries could not achieve from years of talking, has been resolved by global warming," said Hazra.'"

NEVER install Rational Application Developer (RAD). IBM managed to take a half-decent product, add tons of suck to it, and make sure it was the SLOWEST application in the history of mankind. You need at least 4GB to run it at a decent speed. Which is pretty sad when you consider that Windows only goes up to 3.5...
Not to mention it takes like 10 CDs and 5 hours to install...
