11/13   I have a text file that I want to have a leggaly admissible time stamp.
        This should be easy with some type of public key.  Is there a service
        like that?
        \_ I don't think there exist any such electronic notary service.
           If the recipient trusts you then you yourself can put a time
           stamp on the text file and then you can use pgps to sign it.
           Therefore your recipient knows that there's only one person
           that can medle arount with the time stamp.
           \_ There is no specific recipient --- it's not an email message.
                I just need to prove that I created it on some specific day.
        \_ print it out and take it to a notary.
           \_ Is there no electronic/"hi tech" way to do it?
              \_ case law too new, risky to do it high tech unless you are
                 Novell/MS/etc. and have $ lawyers - do it old-fashioned way

11/13   How much is it to fix scratches (paint blemishes, about the size
        of 3 playing cards) on the left-rear bumper of a mid-90's $18K
        car?  Advice much appreciated.  Next time, Ride Bike.

11/13   Hello UN Weapons inspector. Thanks for not inspecting us in the past
        couple of days, giving us ample time to hide our weapons of mass
        destruction. Feel free to inspect us now. Thanks.
        \_ hello again UN Weapons inspectors. I'm so glad you fell for this
           crap for a third time. Nobody thought you would.
           Now would you might bending over just a *little* more?
                \_ Lucky Inspectors, bending over
        \_ There seems to be a lot of backslash against Muslim countries and
           its leadership. Muslim is a good religion and you guys should have
           more respect for its belief.                            -muslim #1
                \_ This guy isn't Muslim, just a fake. If he was Muslim,
                   he would have said "Islam is a good religion."
                \_ No, just against the ones that blow up airplanes and
                   eat babies and burn US flags.  We like bombing non-muslim
                   countries who do that also, nothing personal.  -John
