    Seeking some opinions

    Echo, What is your projected price range?

Remember that repeating the same ideas over and over do not make them justified or correct in an absolute. quote: By Jag: I believe in the rule of law, not in this search for cosmic justice that liberals espouse. It eats away at our rights and freedoms, and is slowly but surely destroying the very foundation that this country is founded upon. Read this, all of 167 pages of it then read the refrenced documents with the changes added, and I challenge you to show how our rights and freedoms are not being whittled away. This law went from concept to presidential approval in 3 days, too little time to analyze it's true meaning. Public Law No: 107-56

    MyDoom downs SCO site

    I posted on this yesterday. Oh well, I do have a tendency to kill discussion but this one was sure fast. Anyway, fast as a speeding bullet, in the blink of an eye, Icecold returns to the luker cave ever vigilant and waiting for the flame signal to appear over SC's city. sco.com down

    AOL tests caller ID for email

    Epsilon 5, They can forge the e-mail return address but they cannot cover the sending server IP from appearing in the source code. This is how I was able to confirm that SC was not sending the spam e-mails awhile back. Icecold

    SCO.com down

    All, www.sco.com is roadkill on the information superhighway. Either the Mydoom worm worked or the company redirected the URL to nothing. The question is: what will sco do till feb 26th when the worm is programed to stop. At the very least it'll be interesting to watch both this and Mydoom.b when it attacks microsoft.com If only people would stop cloging the internet with worms and spam... Icecold

    AOL tests caller ID for email

    You can do the same thing by reading the e-mail source and looking up the sending server. AOL is just making things "easier" to use.

    100% Ai

    Windows ME had about a 4 month life cycle before it became unusually slow. I could extend this by not using BCM but oh well, I think much of the problem had to do with the infinite loop problem in the load screen. This happened to me quite often and forced me to hard reset. What OS do you use? IceCold

    UC Dev Status - Ship it or give it another month?

    quote: RC1 - all 30K (their numbers, not mine) copies they replicated 30k!? 30,000 units is really a hit in the wallet, not to mention the cost of destruction! If they are already boxed, it may be difficult to destroy them all. What a waste, but my computer is too slow to run UC anyways so the release date was never an issue for me anyway. "It's ready when it's ready," but this time it almost jumped the gun.

    Saddam Captured

    quote: Why do you think France and Germany were so adamantly against the military action in Iraq? They were making money off old Saddam by selling him prohibited technology Your assessment of the French interest is correct but there is another aspect to Germany that most Americans do not realize. Germans seem to have militarism in their blood. Germany marches to full blown war whenever the country is unified and a catalyst is introduced to rekindle the fires of the Prussian spirit. Germany did not want the taste of war because they fear that they may come to enjoy it once more. Also, the United States benefited from arms sales to Iraq for we essentially armed Saddam during the Iran/Iraq war.

    Saddam Captured

    Looks like it just got more interesting. Oh by the way, I was looking at the CNN picture headline yesterday evening and wondered why they were all waving red flags. Turns out that they are the Iraqi communist party... Interesting how they could not find another mass celebration to photograph.

    Saddam Captured

    quote: The casualty rate is VERY low, and the people that are fighting will not and cannot get to Saddam now, no matter how hard they try. The US military is protecting far more then you hear about, and the fact of the matter is, it's now going to get easier, NOT harder. And the reasoning, hmm, let's see, numerous UN resolutions that were broken by Saddam, the fact that the cease fire, yes, CEASE fire from the Gulf War was broken by Saddam, so this is not a NEW war, it is an extension of the old one. WMD's, yes, they exist, it is just a matter of time before they are found. What other reasons can I come up with, a whole load of them, but not what you want to hear. The fact that there is a casualty rate underscores the fact that the US cannot protect everyone in Iraq. A 90% success rate denotes a 10% failure rate and people are still being killed over there. Forget about the typical reasoning of the war and focus on your statement that our justice does not apply outside our boarders. How can we justify the projection of our power into other nations where our laws don't apply?

    Saddam Captured

    quote: we 140 thousand or so troops in Iraq, there is an attack a day, and most attacks have been foiled before they even get going, but you never hear about those, you only hear about the successful attacks. That is ALL you are ever going to hear. This is the point. The fact that there are successful attacks invalidates the argument that the US troops can assure the protection of anyone in Iraq. quote: Not our country, not our justice.If our rules of justice don't apply to the world, what is the reasoning for our invasion of Iraq?

    Saddam Captured

    quote: We have the metal bat, they have a nerf bat, they won't be intimidating anyone. Really? We can protect everyone, all the time, from the Iraqi resistance? Whoa man, what about all the successful attacks on US troops by the resistance? If we cannot fully protect ourselves how can we protect everyone else? Take a look as Israel and Palestine situation. Even the hard core Israeli army cannot prevent intimidation in their own country. Saddam needs to be turned over to the United Nations to go before an international trial. Show trials are the tools of tyrants and I don't care if the defendant is Hitler himself. Liberty and Justice must apply to all or it means nothing. Now either Jag or Kalshion will probably say this, "The UN? Who needs the UN? They are weak and all their power is derived from US military might anyway so we could just save them the trouble and do it ourselves!" quote: He will get the death penalty,, question is, how many, and since you can only die once, will they make it quick, or extend his pain for as long as possible? Torture. You are condoning torture. This is sinking right to Saddam's level of personal enjoyment of the suffering of others. Every human has the right to a fair trial and is innocent until proven guilty. Granted, the prosecution may be very short but the burden of proof is on them. "Don't be so quick to deal out death and judgment"
