Anyone read Seeker by Jack McDevitt?
Reminds me of the planet discovered in the end that was tidally locked and the civilization there never really develop astronomy as they couldn't see the stars (always daylight).

Using the email headers, I have traced the account to a Rocketmail.com email account (which is Yahoo owned), and it originated from an IP address that come off the Earthlink network in Hayward. Now what? Do I contact Yahoo? Should I try services like EmailFinder.com, EmailSearch.com, or ReverseEmailDetective.com? Any other ideas?"

The current economy certainly makes the companies tighter when it comes to budget. I've recently been tasked with exploring open-source solutions that can replace our existing expensive, commercial middleware appliance. Since there are no sales people telling me that they have the perfect product that fits my needs, I've been installing different ESBs like Apache ServiceMix, SUN's Glassfish OpenESB and others. What I'm looking for is it being able to connect to various different databases, execute RFCs in the SAP ERP system, send emails, transform XML files, and solve the world's energy problem. Most of the open-source ESBs support these requirements but what I'm also looking for are standards. I'm leaning towards an Eclipse development environment and (hopefully) BPEL I'd also prefer that there is commercial 24/7 support available for cheap. Really, my question is "Which one do I pick?" but I'd settle with your opinions and feedback on Middlewares/ESBs you have used and like or don't like."
You know exactly what I was talking about. We can argue about this forever. You are a douchebag, nonetheless. Just stay wherever you are, because if you go back to Bulgaria, the evil bulgarians will steal your stuff and beat you with sticks.
