Oh GlaDOS, you're so cute with your passive aggressive behavior. Great song though - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6ljFaKRTrI
How? Look for the duct-tape patches over the gaps, of course.
http://youtu.be/N2vzotsvvkw - TEDTalk with a good intro to Thorium/LFTR
Thorium reactors would address your concerns. The plants become self regulating - reaction stops itself if/when needed. That, and the actual thorium elements are a) more common than uranium, and b) generate much less waste. Lots of videos on YouTube explaining the details, but the link above is a good introduction. It also explains the differences from the current Uranium based reactors.
Did they only evaluate those who manually sort their mail? Having the server put mail into appropriate folders doesn't take any time at all once it is set up.
Most of the mail I need access to was in the last few days. When I have to search in my mail client, I'm lucky if the search results come anywhere near close to what I'm looking for.
So, thanks IBM, but I'll stick with the folder approach until such time as the default search capabilities (in ThunderChicken, LookOut, etc) improve.
OR, you know something I don't. If so, please share.
In your example the crime would be the guy actually going to that address AND committing the felony. Telling someone where they can find something *may* be aiding/abetting in very specific circumstances. However on the Internet, posting the link is nothing more than slapping up a poster with an address on it. The people that see that poster make a choice - some may decide to visit that address with criminal intent. There is nothing wrong with putting the poster up - it's called free speech. ACTING on the information the poster contains is when the crime may or may not occur. Going after the guy who created the poster is just a witch hunt. Why not go after the company that made the paper too? and the logging company that provided the wood for the paper, etc.
We live in the world where we can find instructions for making bombs on the Internet. There are links to those instructions. Are THEY aiding and abetting? Why should a corporation get more rights to protect their so called intellectual property? Why is the world so quick to punish those who may infringe on these IDEAS? And why so much more than the people who commit physical crimes? The guy in question here posted a link, a relatively harmless activity. He is facing more legal fees and punishments than a typical burgler, car thief, or rapist. And yet there are people in this thread that are screaming for his head. We, as Internet denizens, seem to have lost a balanced perspective. I think we all need to get out of our basements more often...
So, by your own logic, when you mention to your friend to "take care" around that drug den down the road, you should be put in jail for aiding and abetting the drug trade. We see links to goatse here all the time. The image itself is morally wrong, but the links are not. *IF* Real Alternative is in fact breaking the law then Real Alternative should be held accountable - Not some poor schmuck who simply says "look at this" via a link.
What you are advocating is akin to thought crime. If you don't conform and think the way "we" tell you too, you should be punished. The problem is just who gets to decide what is "right". In every single instance or situation. What happens when this so called "right" does not align with your own personal views? Do you bend over and let them spank you until you see the light? Sorry, but I'm sure glad I don't live in your world and can make up my own mind what links I'll visit, what software I'll install, or even what I'll have for lunch today.

Florian Mueller is quoted in the article. I normally stop reading when I see his name. And I do see a fair bit of articles mentioning him posted to SlashDot. Hmm, and the article was submitted by an anonymous reader... coincidence??
Or that people who do know about computers *have* to use to support their customers/friends/family.
I've seen a number of grand statements like this from Florian Mueller. I do believe that every single one (that I've read about at least) turned out to be putting the best possible spin on something for whoever has the most to gain by such spin. I've also seen Florian's reports dissected and rejected soundly (Google Florian, SCO, and Groklaw). I don't bother reading anything he writes anymore, as it is almost always fear mongering, FUD, and spin. I believe the term that applies here is "paid shill". Of course, all that is just my own opinion - read his writings with a grain of doubt and form your own opinion.
