True and untrue, most of them have morphed into something that is more recognizable by today's standards.
 
... for mine own part, it was Greek to me.
            -- The Tragedy of Julius Caesar Act I, Scene 2
Has changed to:
It's all Greek to me

And

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark
                -- Hamlet Act 1, scene 4
Has changed to:
Something Is Rotten In Denmark

BTW Hamlet must have taken place in a small town hence the name.

+ - CIA, FBI computers used for Wikipedia edits

Submitted by pilsner.urquell
pilsner.urquell (734632) writes "Wikipedia's conflict-of-interest guidelines may have been violated by persons in the FBI and CIA. A new program, WikiScanner, allows users to track the source of computers used to make changes to Wikipedia.

WikiScanner revealed that CIA computers were used to edit an entry on the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. A graphic on casualties was edited to add that many figures were estimated and were not broken down by class.
"

The goal of Computer Science is to build something that will last at least until we've finished building it.
