4/17    "The Viagra Challenge"
        http://www.exile.ru/2005-March-25/feature_story.html
        Our eXiled friend Mark Ames test drives the three leading
        erectile-dysfunction pills, Viagra, Cialis, or Levitra and reports
        the results. This must be the most hilarious article I have read
        this year. Some pictures might be NWS.
        \_ if you find this hilarious, I suggest you seek therapy.  -tom
           \_ Why do you say you find the viagra challenge hilarious?
              \_ Why does someone vote Republican?
                 \_ Is it because does someone vote republican that you
                    came to me?
           \_ funny?  dunno.  laughable?  sure.
           \_ This article is hilarious.  Tom needs to lighten up.
        \_ That was hilarious. Truly, this man has taken a bullet for
           science.
        \_ Laughed my ass off.  I approve. -dans

4/17    Indoor Solar Lighting:
        http://www.we-make-money-not-art.com/archives/005409.php
        http://www.parans.com/products.htm
        \_ A friend of mine has some of those; they're pretty cool.  -tom
        \_ Where do you buy it and how much does it cost?
        \_ These are cool except on the days with no sunlight or at
           night-time.  Then you need two sets of lights installed in each
           room, electric and solar.
           \_ Couldn't you just feed a light source into the fiber?
           \_ This is more to augment areas of low light and has benefits
              of no electricity usage and (I assume) minimal wiring.  Use
              it as you would a skylight.

        \_ "Oxford academics have been working alongside infra-red
            specialists from Brigham Young University, Utah." I hope they're
            not using magic stones to do the translation.

4/17    Anyone know if Yahoo Messenger is encrypted? I use it in internet
        cafes a lot with my 802.11 and I'm wondering if my password is
        protected or not. I don't care about the communication, just my
        password. -ok thx
        \_ Probably not.  If you want to know definitively, run tcpdump.
           Alternatively, set up a VPN and pipe all your connections through
           that.
        \_ Your clear text password is not saved in your machine nor is it sent
           in the clear text through the internet.
