Comment Re:Only Obama is the terrorist (Score 1) 426

With the UK's (and undoubtedly US's) despicable attack against Greenwald (the sort of lover-detainment that's quite simply the "evil" of good-vs-evil stories everywhere) I'm now highly convinced the budget stuff is a distractive sideshow, or even exactly what Obama wants of Congress. (If a budget is never submitted, then there's no budget to scrutinize for, say, certain secret departments' expenses.)


Bradley Manning Says He's Sorry 496

Hugh Pickens DOT Com writes "The Washington Post reports that Pfc. Bradley Manning told a military judge during his sentencing hearing that he is sorry he hurt the United States by leaking hundreds of thousands of sensitive military and diplomatic documents to the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks and he asked for leniency as he spoke for less than five minutes, often in a quavering voice "I'm sorry I hurt people. I'm sorry that I hurt the United States," said Manning, who was convicted last month of multiple crimes, including violations of the Espionage Act, for turning over the classified material. "I'm apologizing for the unintended consequences of my actions. I believed I was going to help people, not hurt people." Speaking publicly for only the third time since he was arrested in Iraq in June 2010, Manning said he had been naive. "I look back at my decisions and wonder, 'How on earth could I, a junior analyst, possibly believe I could change the world for the better over the decisions of those with the proper authority?'""

That will only dignify ARM Restricted Boot. There's no reason to let Microsoft (or Apple and friends) allow some architectures to be useful and others to be outright sealed to their hardware; this will just embolden them to make all PCs jailbreak-required. Best to just not purchase RT, and wait for a real ARM alternative.

Also, Ubuntu. So there's 2 reasons I can't support. Sorry.
