Interesting. I was in bed with this Chineses national, wearing nothing but a banana hammock, and she told me how she loves China. She began arguing quite unlogically that freedom isn't everything and that she likes that the government is taking care that she only reads what's important. She argued that their slashdot doesn't have any trolls and everyone is insightful or interesting.

After that we began to talk about free software and things just got out of hands. Time to taste the freedom! I told her while I opened a laptop with Debian Linux running. She was quite unreasonable about it and left. They are all brain washed, I tell you!

I didn't click it. My name was suggested to a bunch of people I know, though. So, even though I'm not a "member" I come up as a possible member. I just didn't think it was nice of them. I didn't click it out of luck, anyway, because I had no idea what buzz is when it came up and, if I was in an exploring mood, I'd just accept it to see what was that thing. Which is also not really nice. Had they mentioned it was like a twitter that uses my e-mail address, I'd say no everytime. But they certainly didn't phrase things like that.

Probably not, though. The latency is probably not that big. It's the army infrastructure, not a random counter-strike server, after all. Latency from US to europe over the internet can be as low as 50ms. Afghanistan is not that far from Europe, there's probably good infrastructure connecting europe to some place close to afghanistan. Overall, I think the latency should be reasonable.
