Won't be long until the US Government institutes this policy with its agencies.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
From the explosives side, I've just simply never understood why or how these machines are better than a bomb sniffing dog. Dogs are impartial to: age, sex, race, religion.. etc. They can do the job significantly faster and are generally liked by passengers.
I suppose someone could bring through a composite knife passing through metal detectors, but just lock the cockpit doors and give the pilots a couple
I'd much rather have a larger higher resolution monitor than two smaller monitors.
So can gamblers audit the casinos to ensure all the times they lost were not due to a "glitch"?
Judge Jones sided with Microsoft (which most slashdotters hate), but sided with personal ambiguity - thus not being identified a "file sharer" by the MPAA/RIAA.
Sounds like a good ruling for the majority of internet users to me.
Wonder why the publishers just don't sell PDF versions of the book for $10.00. I'd think doing that would save money on paper, shipping, printing, electricity, etc.
With the use of notebooks/netbooks so prevalent in schools, I'd think this would be a no brainer.

I cycle too 12 miles a day. I like the challenge of not getting crushed by a car. Reminds me of Paperboy on NES.
If Jason Bourne can do pull ups on a fishing boat at sea, I'm sure you can do push ups or sit ups in the hall.
Eat 6 times a day in small volumes to increase your metabolism.
Get an exercise bike and mount a laptop to it to workout while working. You couldn't even geek it out to power the laptop with a DC converter.
Your nerd card has been revoked for lack of imagination.
I installed the Windows 7 RC on my 2 year old gaming desktop. Noted: I skipped Vista on my home machines. These are my observations of 7.
1.) The system boots faster with identical applications loaded
2.) The interface is much snappier in day to day operations - the layout of menus, shortcuts, drives, and peripherals is more intuitive. *Can't give enough praise for the recent files used under each program (big time saver).
3.) Programs load quicker than XP and use of programs feels snappier.
4.) The Task Bar is what it always should have been. The new changes are extremely useful in day to day usage. I especially like the preview box of open windows in groups while pinned.
5.) Windows Explorer is light years ahead of XP. File management is so much easier now.
6.) USB support feels better. I'm getting higher reads/writes off existing usb keys/hard disk drives.
7.) The interface is nicer looking - I feel like I'm using a modern computer system. I really like the auto size when dragging windows to the side of the screen or top.
8.) No crashing or lockups as of yet. The RC has been rock solid (I wish I had been able to test the beta, people say it was even quicker).
Microsoft sold me on Windows 7. I purchased two copies of the upgrade to home premium for $49 each. I don't know why people say it's outrageous for the OS. I'm not sure you're using the same Windows 7 I am, but it's worth every penny MS is asking.
Noted: I'm an avid Ubuntu user as well.
