6/16    Remember Lynxgate, that Washington Times inspired witch hunt?
        Here is what really happened. Of course, they will not issue
        an apology.
        \_ Nice unbiased source.  I love how they dismiss the case of the four
           murdered firemen.
        \_ Um, no.  I don't remeber this at all.  Are you sure you're not
           taking some incredibly minor issue that was poorly reported on and
           using it to push your own agenda?  If so, get used to

10/1    I am thinking of installing firefox on soda under my home directory.
        Will this make me a hozer?
        \_ Possibly. I wonder if we should have another VM for that...btw,
           I remember someone saying they're glad we're not on FreeBSD
           anymore, but last I checked, a bunch of our stuff is on FreeBSD,
           but our login server is not.

1/3     Regarding the WMF vulnerability, is it true that if you're using
        Firefox 1.5, you'll always be prompted when there's a WMF image on a
        web page?  I know those using IE are SOL unless they install the 0-day
        patch from Ilfak Guilfanov mentioned here:

Instead he got an unwanted starring role in the most bizarre environmental flap of recent memory: Lynxgate. Details of "the great biofraud," as the The Washington Times has dubbed the affair, first emerged just before Christmas. Wainwright and six other state and federal wildlife scientists in Washington State allegedly "planted" clumps of wild lynx fur in the Gifford Pinchot and Wenatchee national forests. The intent, say their accusers, was to trigger the protections that are imposed when a threatened species like the Canada lynx is found living in a new area, namely closure of the forest to recreationists and loggers. For their roles in a green conspiracy that seemed worthy of Oliver Stone, Wainwright and five colleagues were reassigned to other programs--one other retired--and were told to keep their mouths shut. Wainwright was very reluctant to speak to Outside, fearing not only for his job but also for the future of all endangered-species programs in the United States. Because industry groups, pundits, and conservative lawmakers--led by Republican House Committee on Resources chairman James Hansen of Utah and Scott McInnis of Colorado, the Republican who chairs the subcommittee that oversees national forests--are using the lynx controversy to launch wide-ranging attacks on endangered-species policies past, present, and future. Then again, at least some of the fear has been inspired by McInnis himself. Last year, after four wilderness firefighters perished in a blaze in Washington State, he charged that Forest Service officials may have been culpable by delaying a decision allowing a helicopter to scoop water from a river containing threatened fish. It's all pretty rousing stuff, but the real untold story is that the great lynx biofraud is baloney. Outside interviewed 25 scientists, investigators, and policy makers familiar with the incident, and reviewed all the relevant reports. What emerges is not a scientific scandal but a case study in media-amplified demagoguery. There is no evidence whatsoever to support either a conspiracy or a cover-up. They didn't plot to invoke the Endangered Species Act through falsified data. And even if they had, it wouldn't have worked, because any evidence of lynx would have to be confirmed with further research before new management decisions could be made. Lynxgate's selectively told tale of environmental skullduggery has so angered some biologists that they've started using the M word.
