5/9     Networking Vista computers together is a steaming pile of shit.
        What the fuck was MS thinking?  Fuck!  fuck.  (fuck).  blah.
        \_ So is networking vista to XP and to Samba.
           \_ Heck, networking XP to XP was awful, I had kinda assumed
              they would fix it in Vista.
              \_ They need to keep it awful to ensure backward compatibility.

5/10    Apparently entrapment is hunky dorey if it catches terra-ists!
        \_ Doesn't look like entrapment to me.
        \_ Entrapment is generally "hunky dorey" is most contexts. It
           is a very weak defense that is mostly used as a last resort
           b/c nothing better is available. To argue entrapment is to
           concede that not only did one do the crime but also that the
           cops acted constitutionally under the 4th, 5th and 6th amend.
           (at least wrt to the particular suspect).
           Furthermore, entrapment is not a constitutional defense,
           and the federal statute (applicable here) is limited. The
           standard used in federal court is subjective predisposition
           (see JACOBSON v. US, 503 US 540 (1992)), which is *very*
           defendant unfriendly b/c it allows the prosecutor bring in
           all sorts of bad character to show evidence that the suspect
           was subjectively predisposed to commit the crime before the
           cops approached him/her. In addition, some courts take the
             \- yes, but it allows for the
                "bitch set me up" defense!
                \_ I suppose, but what is
                   the point of arguing
                   that one was setup, if
                   one will mostly likely
                   loose the argument?
           view that the police don't even need reasonable suspicion
           that crime is afoot before conducting a sting (see US v.
           GRENDON, 18 F3d 955 (1st Cir. 1994) - opinion by BREYER).
           Although in theory one can always argue that the police acts
           were so egregious that the violated the 5th/14th amend. due
           process rights of the suspect, it is hard to win under that
           unless the cops basically did everything (e.g. in the drug
           context, the cops need to do something like provide the
           buyer, the seller and the drugs).
           \_ But hey, maybe if these guys are real lucky they'll be able
              to BRING THIS UP in a court of law!  Oh woops, off to Gitmo
              with you.

5/10    What happens when you "run government like a business"
        \_ The Post Office is a good example. It's quite successful,
           providing better QoS and lowering costs.
        \_ No, that's what happens when you run government like an
           idiot.  I can't really see how what the UC did is
           anything like a business, except that a badly run
           business would probably have similar problems.
