I read with great concern that some of the plants selected are brassicas and, as we know, these are of the cabbage family. Further, the effect upon the human bowel is quite well know especially if you are sitting next to the brassica eater. Does anyone think that it would be a "good thing" to grow brassicas in space and in confined space living room. Mutated Cabbage vs Mothra?

It occurs to me that Google and co have been and are putting together a series of products to warm the cockles of any dictator, cabal. secret police, star chamber etc even to the details and location about individuals in a street. Rather like a super market. Or a squad of semi-military police who knock on your door ask your name and check you off against a google shopping list. Does it make you feel warm inside to know that all that information is in such kind hands?

+ - RIAA v. the People: Four Years Later->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "This week, we will mark the fourth year anniversary of the RIAA's legal campaign against music piracy where the RIAA has threatened, settled or filed lawsuits against more than 20,000 of its own customers. Inspite of all this, P2P is as popular as ever. RIAA might be winning legal battles, but it is losing the war on music piracy"

+ - Best Rootkit Eliminator?

Submitted by

BeanBagKing writes "I've never worried much about rootkits, but now I'm starting to see the light. The question is, whats the best? I've read several reviews, but all of them are months, if not years, old. Blacklight is no longer free, one called RAIDE has been released that's supposed to "revolutionize" rootkit detection. Several of these, such as Rootkit Unhooker, seem to crash Vista every time they're launched. Larger companies (Kaspersky, Symantec, McAfee, etc.) don't focus on this, but with Sony attaching rootkits to everything from games to music to fingerprint readers, this seems like something we should concern ourselves with. What can I put on my Vista machine to detect, eliminate, and optimally, prevent rootkits?"

The moon may be smaller than Earth, but it's further away.
