Journal Journal: ps2 - toy story graphics, or not?

Can anyone direct me to a reputable site that has the actual quote said by a sony rep the playstation 2 could do toy story graphics?

The closest thing I can find on a reputable site is on ign (no jokes please) and it says
"analysts hinted at "Toy Story"-caliber graphics for the console,"

but thats far from sony saying it.

I ask because I came across this and wondered if maybe people got things confused.

Journal Journal: conime.exe is NOT always a trojan.

posting this because people like myself use google to find whats spyware and whats not. The first hit on google incorrectly reports conime.exe is spyware. That is only half true so I am posting this here there and everywhere. The file "conime.exe" is NOT necessarily spyware. It could also be microsoft console ime (input method editor), which is used for entering foreign characters.
if you have foreign language support in XP then the file could be from that. If not then you can nuke the file with no dire consequences.

of course, if you nuke it by accident and need it back again, go to language setting in control panel and choose the foreign language again. Xp will ask for the cd to copy the file again when you click ok.

Journal Journal: Your Rights Online

This comes up a lot in YRO topics. The question is how do we interpret Your Rights Online?

        * as - Your Rights Online
            About your rights in the online world - privacy, drm, spam etc
        * as - Your Rights Online
            Discussing your rights in an online discussion group (slashdot)

Personally, I sort of see it as the second one... its a place for discussing people's rights, not just their rights in the "online" world but all of our rights.
