Re: iPod Shuffle Turns Weird

wow. what a terrible idea. I usually run my headphones under my shirt so they don't get caught while I'm working. It looks like those controls would be just below the collar of my shirt... most convenient for me is right where they are. I keep my nano clipped on my pocket where I can control it with...

Re: Gun Day at Church cancelled...

I go to school in Arkansas. From what I understand, this was brought up after a few churches got shot up by outsiders, during service. The point of the law was to allow people to defend themselves. It's the same as people trying to get guns allowed on campuses after the Virginia Tech shooting.

Re: just how secure is ssh?

you're right, Ex, i'm on the university network, connecting to a computer off-campus. so basically they'll be able to see who I'm connected to and that i'm using ssh/scp or maybe vnc over an ssh tunnel, but won't necessarily be able to see what files i'm transferring or what commands i'm sending ove...

just how secure is ssh?

My university has taken to packet sniffing to keep tabs on what is done on their network. I've a computer off-campus that I can access via ssh and create a tunnel for VNC, I'm just curious how easily they could see through that. I guess what I'm asking is exactly how good is ssh's encryption. (stran...

Re: Battery Suggestions for Best Practices

I got one of the first generation iPod Nanos in Spring of '06, used it mostly in my studio classes for a few months, but ever since, it's been mostly used in the car plugged into a charger+transmitter. Now, from a complete charge I get just under two hours of battery out of it... far cry from the 14...

Scientists Close to Reconstructing First Living Cell

Modern cells are like microscopic cities: They have power plants (mitochondria), trash dumps (lysosomes), local government (the nucleus, with DNA serving as the legal charter), and many other activities going on inside their boundaries. They also have a border patrol in the form of a double-layered...

Re: Zimbabwe: Home of the $50 billion cheeseburger

Hyperinflation is a scary thought. I wonder if global hyperinflation could happen? aren't there countries that base the value of their money on the value of the US Dollar? If the US were to find itself spiraling out of control like that, then wouldn't those countries follow suit? Granted, it's less...

With for-profit prisons, the concept of "crowded enough" probably doesn't exist.

if only there was a feasible way for the public to remove a President... but considering how fickle the public is, and the disastrous effects it would have on the stability of the nation, I suppose I'm glad there isn't. Though personally I've wishing for an impeachment for years now...

Re: This smut case is extreme, even in Los Angeles

Even as an art student having been fed the modern "anything is art" concept, I don't really see how this could be considered art. ... but sending someone to jail for it? isn't that a little excessive? A hefty fine I could understand, but jail? ...aren't our jails crowded enough already?
