+ - Council wants to remove 10 year old radio tower->

Submitted by zeronode
zeronode (513709) writes "In a stunning move of WTF, the Mt. Pleasant, Wi village council wants to force a 10 year old to remove his HAM radio tower. "Just days after a 10-year-old boy won an award for his ham radio contributions, his parents are worried local regulations will force them to take down the backyard tower he uses to communicate." Both Wisconsin and the FCC have laws saying the council can't force the family to take the tower down, but hey, who needs to play by the rules, right?"

+ - China hackers attack France for meeting Dalai Lama->

Submitted by
zeronode
zeronode writes "It seems that China is getting miffed at France's President Nicolas Sarkozy for meeting with the Dalai Lama. "The authorities in Beijing issued a stern denunciation of the meeting last week, cancelled an EU-China summit and said trade with France might suffer. A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry rejected any suggestion that the Chinese government might approve of the cyber-attack, reported to have made the embassy's website inaccessible for several days.""
