My Russian friends tell me they know nothing of such a tradition for marking Den' Rabotnikov Reklamy (the Day of the Advertising Workers). (No, I'm not making that up.)

And I somehow doubt that the 60th anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution is being celebrated with much fanfare in Russia, either.

Nice try, though. Quite inventive.

Laughs about death of Gadaffi.

I can't escape the nagging feeling that the same people who keep "complaining" about this are the same people who joked about something happening to Gaddafi before it ever happened (or would have, had they thought of it, which most of them likely didn't), and would laugh the loudest if something untoward happened to Clinton. These folks also seem to be the same ones who conveniently ignore the fact that Libyans were literally (not figuratively) dancing in the streets and whooping for joy when they heard he was dead.

For mine, it's certainly regrettable that Gaddafi didn't get his day in court, but Mme Karma does have a way of being a really nasty bitch sometimes.

15 Then the Pharisees went and plotted to entrap him in what he said. 16 So they sent their disciples to him, along with the Herodians, saying, “Teacher, we know that you are sincere, and teach the way of God in accordance with truth, and show deference to no one; for you do not regard people with partiality. 17 Tell us, then, what you think. Is it lawful to pay taxes to the emperor, or not?” 18 But Jesus, aware of their malice, said, “Why are you putting me to the test, you hypocrites? 19 Show me the coin used for the tax.” And they brought him a denarius. 20 Then he said to them, “Whose head is this, and whose title?” 21 They answered, “The emperor’s.” Then he said to them, “Give therefore to the emperor the things that are the emperor’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” 22 When they heard this, they were amazed; and they left him and went away.

It seems the open source community fell into the same trap MS did back in the win 95 days of not thinking ahead with security when these things come online.

Huh? The FOSS community is not responsible for the misuse of its software by third parties.
