10/12   The wife lost her ATT+T  dcell while here in NYC . There seems to
         be no fraud activity yet. We were just  wonderingf its actually
        possible to get a location trace done like the so on TV?
        \_ For AT&T... pretty much no unless you are law enforcement
           with a subpeona.  If you had Sprint you could just use our
           handly little product! and locate it
        \_ Technically possible, unlikely to get AT&T's co-operation, as
           noted above. Do you have friends who work for the Death Star?
           \_ They updated their logo to make it less Death Star-ish a
              long time ago.
              \_ It actually seems even more so to me. Plus all the Star
                 Wars references made it impossible to pass up...

10/12   I got sucked into doing some wedding video stuff using basically a
        handheldsetup and a single finger  holding down the record button.
        I have imported eveerything I have on to my macbookPro and Imovie.
        I would like to try to do at least some cleanup of the shakey images.
        My kodak V1253 is not really designed to do viddeo clips longer than
        a minute at most and i was doing closer to five. Lots of sorefingers
        and wrists as a result.Any inexpensve suggestsions that will at
        provide some marginal imporveent to the videos?
        (* And I  will try and bry a tripod with mext tme )
        \_ such software does not [yet] exist but I see this as a really
           amazing, obviously should have done startup idea that'd really
           take off.

10/12   Obama's affair, you heard it here first:
        \_ Is this really more newsworthy than rumors that McCain
           is really a chupacabra?  Because you heard that first here as
        \_ Dittohead Desperation Level: Magenta

        on an affair as well as one free pass on partial birth abortions.

10/13   Can anyone recommend a decent open source software package to track
        passwords in a global network (Windows+UNIX systems) ... I'm sick and
        tired of waiting days for IT to track down the one person with root
        on some server somewhere.
        \_ its not open source, but we've been using Cyberark
           ( it's done the job well enough.   Considering
           what it cost, I bet an open source competitor would not be hard to
           write... -ERic

10/13   It bypasses appropriations, bypasses the congress, it's in your closing
        documents. This from day forward we will all be paying 4.2% basis fee
        of $420 for every $100,000 mortgage in your closing paper will have
        papers. You'll have a new little line in there, a new fee that we're
        going to all pay to go straight to these affordable housing funds which
        the states then hard wire to La Raza, ACORN, groups like that.
        \_ We are becoming France and in Texas we done want to be France.
        \_ It's hillarious how quickly ACORN become the 25%ers new Hitler.

10/13   Obama supporters calling Palin a cunt.
        \_ ob I thought Hillary was
           \_ No, Hitlary is a FemiNazi.
              \_ ob why not both
                 \_ It is okay to call some a Nazi but not a cunt?
        \_ Wow, people are being assholes on the internet!  I never!
        \_ Well, now, they're just following John McCain's lead.
        \_ Love the comments. "You are a bone gagger." But yeah, this is
           pretty low.
        \_ Calling Sarah Palin a bad word vs. calling Obama a terrorist,
           a socialist, an Arab, and comparing him to a stuffed Monkey.
            Yup, pretty much the same!
           \_ Not to mention doing so loudly and publicly at a McCain rally
              and McCain/Palin didn't even feel the need to say "hey now,
              that's not reasonable" until after the media started to notice
              that McCain was intentionally stoking such hate.  Hey OP, this
              is an obvious attempt to turn McCain's ugly ugly campaign into
              just another tit-for-tat politcal story, but that's just not
              going to fly.
             \_ at what point did people call Obama a terrorist and/or Arab
                where Palin and/or McCain "stoked" that or let it go?  I'm
                curious to see that.
                \_ You don't pay much attention to the news do you?
                   \_ Why not give him the link instead of just insulting the
                      guy? Not everyone is a news junkie.
                   \_ The person was calling Ayers a terrorist, not Obama.
                      \_ That is one interpretation, not mine however. What
                         about the guy who yelled "kill him!" do you think he
                         was agitating for the lynching of Ayers or Obama?
                         \_ I think it's obviously referring to Ayers.
                          \_ Saying something multiple times doesn't make it
                             even remotely true..

        \_ I loathe agreeing with Chris Hitchens.
           \- hitchens is a complicated case. but make no mistake
              people like charles krathhammer are way worse [limiting
              to putative serious journalists] ... those guys are in

10/13   Heeeere it comes, the next McCain hail mary:
        \_ How many of those can you throw?
        \_ If McCain actually disavows the loony side of his Party, I will
           be really impressed with him.
           \_ It would be a lot more impressive if he hadn't spent the last
              year give the loony side of his Party delicious blowjobs.
           \_ Why would McCain strategy #12321 be impressive?
              \_ Because it would take some real moral courage.
               \_ No, what would have taken moral courage would have been
                  not to cozy up with the loony side in the first place.
                  It doesn't take courage to stop being dispicable after
                  you've discovered that's being dispicable is a losing tactic.
                  It doesn't take courage to stop being despicable after
                  you've discovered that's being despicable is a losing tactic.
                  \_ Life isn't always scripted you know. It is possible that
                     McCain did not realize that palling around with Rove's
                     team would lead to such a lynch mob mentality. I certainly
                     was expecting an ugly campaign, but nothing like the near-
                     riot levels of hysteria from the Right. Pulling the
                     country back from that kind of political violence speaks
                     well of McCain's character.
                     \_ So you are saying it's not poor John McCain's fault
                        run of the sleaziest, deceitful campaigns ever?  Gee,
                        I guess he really is senile then, because that's the
                        only reason I could see you giving him a pass for
                        how he ran his campaign.
                        \_ You are almost as dumb as George W. Bush. I am hardly
                           giving him a "pass" in fact if he does not change
                           the tone of his campaign, I will be the first to
                           call him on it. It would be nice if he did the
                           right thing, though I am not holding my breath.
                           I am the guy who gave Obama $2300, btw, in case
                           you think I am some kind of closet McCain supporter.
                        ran one of the sleaziest, deceitful campaigns ever?
                        Gee, I guess he really is senile then, because
                        that's the only reason I could see you giving him
                        a pass for how he ran his own campaign.
                        \_ No, I am not saying that at all. I am saying that if
                           he admits that he made a mistake and does his best
                           to rectify it, it will make him an unusually morally
                           courages and admirable person. It is rare that anyone
                           does something like this, in my experience, and
                           especially rare for the fragile egomaniacs that end
                           up in politics. But it looks like I won't have to
                           re-assess him, because it looks like he isn't going
                           to fire Atwater's army of Orcs.
                           to fire Atwater and his army of Orcs.

        What's a good broker to use? Etrade is not listed.
        \_ Why?  CA is likely to default.
           \_ What the hell does this mean? Can American default?
              \_ Yes.  T-bills are now insured for the first time.  CA is
                 marching towards bankruptcy.  Every other state facing budget
                 shortfalls is cutting spending, except CA of course.
        \_ ETrade sells CA bonds. I have bought them there many times.
