4/7     I would appreciate recommendation of a fully Mac compatible USB
        keyboard.  Of course there is Apple Pro, but by experience it must
        be more expensive than it needs to be.  tia.

        \_ I have a Mac and wanted the same thing. I ended up buying the
           Apple Pro keyboard. I'm glad I did. First, it's a very nice
           keyboard. Second, it's just really nice to have the Mac keys
           on it ... a real Apple key, volume up/down/off, eject ... sure,
           you could map them to something else, I guess, but I am glad I
           spent the extra money to get the real thing.

4/8     I recently got my first raise, and I'm curious: are my accumulated
        vacation hours worth more now, or will I be paid according to the
        rate I was receiving when I earned them?
        \_ This depends entirely on your employer.  Ask HR.
        \_ I think they are always worth more now to the company, because if
           you take the vacation now, the company is obligated to pay you at
           your new rate while you are not working.  The new rate is what they
           now have to use for accounting purpose.  But I don't know what rate
           they'll use if you decide to cash-in the vacation time and the
           company allows that.
        \_ I've always had them valued at my current salary when I cashed
           them in.
           \_ if it were any other way, what would happen when you started
              taking vacation? would the company use prepromotion vacation days
              first or are they bastards, in which case they use your post-
              promotion vacation days first... then, when you cash out, they
              cash you out at pre-promotion wages. it would be a mess and
              probably illegal.
        \_ I just got paid for all the hours i've accumlated over our max
           and I was paid at my latest salary.  -sky
        \_ New rate. Doing it the other way would screw with accounting.

4/8     On Al-Jazeera, an announcer read a statement he said came with the
        video .... "Three of your sons have fallen into our hands," the
        Al-Jazeera announcer read. "We offer you two choices: either pull
        out your forces, or we will burn them alive. We give you three days
        starting the day this tape is broadcast." Japan's NHK television
        identified the captives as two aid workers and a journalist. The
        passports shown in the video belong to: Noriaki Imai, born 1985;
        Soichiro Koriyama, 32; Nahoko Takato, 34. The gunmen also displayed
        a press card for Koriyama from the weekly newspaper Asahi. ...
        Associated Press Television News obtained a copy of the full video,
        which also shows four masked men pointing knives and swords at the
        captives as they lay on the floor of a room with concrete walls. At
        one point, a gunman holds a knife to the throat of one of the men;
        his eyes widen in panic and he struggles to try to get free. The
        woman weeps and her lips move as if speaking. There was no audio to
        the footage. -NY Times (today)
        (The article also describes the method by which eight Korean Christian
         missionaries were also kidnapped, now subsequently released.)
        \_ Will they saran wrap them up first? The Japanese love that.
        \_ If they execute them, nuke their city.
           \_ Which city? All of them???
              \_ Nukes are cheap.  We've been spending big bucks to dismantle
                 them for 20 years.  Use a few.
        \_ Whenever I see someone threatening to slit someone's throat
           (as it happened with Pearl and probably some of the 9/11 flights),
           I think of this video:  http://csua.org/u/6tv  NOT WORK SAFE.
           Probably the most horrible video I've ever seen, and I've seen
           all of soda's famous ones.  This is no joke.
           \_ that's pretty damn horrible/scary...  Who was the poor guy?
              \_ Care to elaborate for those who opt not to view it?
                 \_ They stick a knife in the guy's throat, and slash it,
                    and then cut his head off.  It's really awful.
              \_ it's propaganda footage from Chechen rebels.  The guy is
                 a captured young Russian soldier.
                 \_ We're supposed to be pitying the poor rebels, right?  If
                    not, would it help their acuse if they sent their kids
                    into civilian areas wearing bomb belts?
            \_ that is nothing, in Indonesia, the muslim bastards
                killeda 14 year old Chinese christian girl by sticking
                a sword, edge side up into her vagina, thrusting it all
                the way till the hilt hits her vagina, then proceeding
                to cut open her torso from vagina to chin. nice
                religion.

        \_ 'She said she made the unusual decision to retain him when the
            new administration came into office, saying, he was an "expert
            in his field, as well as an experienced crisis manager."'
           So unusual that two administrations before this had done the same
           thing.

              \_ Touche'!

4/8     Condi's been FRAMED. It's all about subduing the black populace. If
        the gloves don't fit, it don't make sense.
2004/4/8 [Politics/Domestic/President/Clinton, Politics/Domestic/President/Bush] UID:13088 Activity:very high
4/7     Condi Rice paraphrased. "It's not our fault. We didn't know exactly
        what was going to happen so we couldn't do anything to prevent it.
        It's Clinton's fault."
        \_ Truth hurts, huh?  Read the transcript for yourselves instead of
           getting the mindless motd leftist rehash:
           http://wid.ap.org/transcripts/rice.html
           http://wid.ap.org/transcripts/rice.html
           \_ Truth?  From a series of subjective statements by one woman,
              in the face of numerous subjective statements by several other
              people?  Yes, that'll get us to the bottom of this.
              \_ Better subjective statements by the person under discussion
                 than subjective rehashes by others.  I think the above
                 poster makes a good point.  Thanks for posting the link.
                 You hear a lot of lies watching CSPAN, but IMHO that's a lot
                 better than hearing a brief, badly understood, spun version
                 of the lie by some reporter on one of the "real" networks.
                 \_ You're right, primary sources are better than secondary
                    sources.  Unfortunately, it's now devolved into "She said,
              people?  Yes, that'll get us to the bottom of this.
                    he said."  It's hard to get to the truth at this point.
                    \_ when it comes to a question of crediblity between
                       a white man and a black woman, we all know who to
                       trust.
        \_ We already found that out when Clarke testified (he said that had we
           done everything he wanted it wouldn't have stopped 9/11).  It's a
           shame that this commission is a blame hunt instead of an attempt to
           fix problems.
           \_ To fix problems you need to find the cause. The blame game tells
              you who thought what way. Was it institutional or executive
              based? What were the priorities? Who knew what when? Was it
              incompetance, lack of communication or PHB syndrome?
              \_ If you want to find the cause, you shouldn't be lobbing
                 partisan opinions, or even having this in open session.  This
                 whole Rice inquisition is happening not to find answers, but
                 to present a dog and pony show to the public, which includes
                 the blame game.
                 \_ Like Cheney's Energy policy? Golly, no partisans there.
           fix problems.
                    Yes it was a dog-and-pony show, because sometimes you NEED
                    prove you have a dog-and-pony, that can state your case
                    instead of being told "don't worry your pretty little head
                    about it, we know what we're doing."
           \_ as one radio commentator mentioned- the phrase "couldn't the FAA
                have put heavier doors on the cabin / armed the pilots"
                never came up from any of the commission members.  They
                seriously are not interested in the truth, even the Democrats
                who would benefit from showing the Bush administration's
                failures.  They are all worthless parasitic trash.
                \_ Because the FAA could never have gotten that passed though
                   committee before 9/11.
                   \_ what committee?
           is a lot more glamurous.
        \_ you guys have such short memory span.  Remember, Bush and his
           neocons were putting China and Russia under their cross hair and
           eager to start another cold war.  Fighting an evil empire
           is a lot more glamurous.
           \_ I thought it was 'neocons and their Bush'?
              \_ my bad, i'm sorry.
                 \_ glamorous.
        \_ What frustrates me is the emphasis on how "lucky" the US caught
           previous terrorists attempts. You can MAKE luck. It's like sodans
           whining about no sex when they spend whole weekends playing UT.
           If you're not trying, it's not going to happen.
           \_ Exactly.  We all know that it's the CounterStrike guys who get
              the chix.
              \_ Word. I hate those guys.
        \_ Clinton lobbed cruise missiles at bin Laden (after the U.S. embassy
           bombings that killed hundreds).  You can bet he would have liked
           to have Predator accuracy at that point.
           On the other hand, Bush didn't do anything.  Nothing was
           "actionable".  The attitude was that if Clinton supported it, the
           Bush people didn't want anything to do with it.
           \_ Given Clinton's record it's a sound basic policy from which to
              start.
        \_ Condi testimony indicates a failure of the intelligence
           community, mostly their fear of being wrong.
           \_ Maybe. That's the question. Emperor's clothing or deaf ears?
              \_ no, the statement means keeping mouth shut before
                 telling the emperor or emperor's helpers like condi

        Fox News:  'If We Had Known ...'
        Boston Globe:  Rice: US not on 'war footing' at time of 9/11 attacks
        I guess this is how you ensure your reporters remain embedded and how
        you maintain "access".  The David Letterman fiasco with the sleepy kid
        is another data point suggesting CNN bias.
        \_ Yahoo News routinely changes its headlines several times a day for
           news articles.  Maybe the other media companies do the same thing.
           Then it'd just be which headline you happen to see at the time.

                                       actually bracketed URLs might give them
                                       a similar level of problems.  The

                                       eventually learn not to copy the
                                       terminating period.
                                       \_ How about URLs containing spaces?

4/8     If I set up a BIND nameserver for a domain that doesn't exist yet,
        and I use this nameserver in nslookup to query hostnames from
        this domain, will the nameserver recognize that it's (configured to be)
        authoritative for that domain and reply directly, or will it try
        to start from the root servers and work its way down (thus not
        succeeding in finding itself)? Thanks.
        \_ As long as it knows it's a master, it will answer queries.  The
           root servers just start queries in the outside world on the
           path to finding it. --scotsman
        \_ nameservers only refer to other (i.e. root/gtld) nameservers if
            they don't know anything about a domain.  So your unregistered

            off of your nameserver.  -EricM

        It is now more apparent than ever that disbanding the Iraqi army
        was a terrible mistake.  It resulted in (1) lots of jobless and angry
        military trained people, (2) totally alienated all the sunnis,
        (3) destroyed the only Iraqi institution that can keep order (the
        police force put together by Bremer has proven to be totally useless
        and they are viewed as lackeys).  US should have learned from the
        colonial brits and made use of the conquered Iraqi army.  Now, I
        don't see how a police / military force can be put together, cause
        the provisional government is now seen as a US lackey, and any
        police / military force will also be seen as a US lackey, and will
        only attract lackeys, unfortunately.  the pro-US patriotic Iraqis
        can at most stand on the sidelines now.  we are stuck there forever.
        \_ Bremer (who shares responsibility with Rumsfeld, et al. on
           disbanding the army) said we were going to be handing over power
           on June 30, and he said that on Tuesday.  Then again, Kerry says
           the Administration hasn't explained how the handover will take
           place, who we are transferring power to, and what relationship
           this will have to the U.S. forces who will apparently remain
           behind to provide security
           \_ Remember our president "doesn't do nuance" (actual quote).  In
              his mind: June 29: Sovereignty in US hands June 30: Sovereignty
              in Iraqi hands.  That's it.  Don't try to think beyond that.
              \_ Yeah, if he did do nuance, he would have ignored the
                 asinine calls from the left for a definitive handover
                 date.  Now all we hear is how stupid it was to name a
                 handover date since we gave the enemy a target to hit.  Kind
                 like the liberals who opposed Saddam's ouster in '91, but
                 poke with glee at Bush41 for "not finishing the job".
