11/12   Ok you super bored uber-geeks with no life. Here:
        Beautiful body paint, ok women. May not be SFW.

11/13   Is Libertarianism dead? Can we throw it on the ash heap of history

11/11   Now I understand why Randy the Brian Harvey kiss ass
        moves her eyes back and forth so much:
        \_ Randy?  Randy who?  Do you mean Brandy?
                \_ also its been 15 years.  time to let go.  she's moved
           \_ Yes Brandy, the girl who sits in front and kiss BH's ass.
              Who cares about 15 years, once a target, always a target.
              \_ URL? Is she hot?
           \_ Brandy
              You're a fine girl
              What a good wife you would be
              But my life, my love and my lady
              Is the C

11/12   How does one find out if a system has rootkit installed?
        \_ Unix or m$?
           \_ Unix. On M$ I always assume it's compromised.
              \_ Install Tripwire before you plug your server into The Net?
                 The only other answer I can think of is to reinstall the
                 OS from scratch on another server and do an md checksum
                 comparison with your current binaries. You can also look
                 for other signs of infection, like open ports that don't
                 belong there (netstat -o), mysteriously growing filesystems,
                 etc, but a really good rootkit is almost undetectable. Most
                 of them aren't really good though.

11/13   "Man distracted by bird drives Bugatti into marsh"
        Holding a cell phone while driving.  Yup, he deserves this.  I wonder
        if holding a cell phone while driving is illegal in TX.

11/13   "The World's Most Powerful People 2009"
        Sergey Brin and Larry Page ranked 5th???  Yeah, Google is all powerful
        in spreading information and mis-information.  But Google, Inc. itself
        doesn't sway opinions or anything.  It's not like Google selectively
        publishes stories or has an editorial like a news media company.
        Whereas, for example, one speech from the Pope, ranked 11th, can
        change the minds of 1/6th of the world's population.
        \_ Yeah, if the Pope says everyone should start fighting the Muslims,
           there will be nutcase that actually follow his advice. On the
           other hand people usually just laugh and shrug off whatever
           Larry and Sergey have to say.
           Larry and Sergey have to say. Googlers don't even take these
           2 founders seriously. The only real power they have are:
           1) getting people to go to TGIF at Building 42 Googleplex
           2) making acquisitions
        \_ yes Sergey Brin and Larry Page are actually the world's LEAST
           powerful people.
