Re: Sign ALL the data
I was also under the mistaken impression that signatures operated across all the data it was signing.

I was on it for a few months and despite engineer visits and obligatory non-returned calls, they never managed to deliver that speed. The best I was getting from speedtest.net was just over 20Mb. Have just downgraded to 30Mb (apparently 20Mb doesn't exist anymore??).
I thought that export restriction was lifted in the late 90s when someone printed out the code, took it on a plane and re-entered it in a.n.other country. When IE finally got to use full 128 bit SSL instead of the 56 bit allowed outside the US. Or are there still restrictions to the likes of Pakistan, Iran etc?
3.0 and 3.5 are extensions of .Net 2.0. The 250Mb installer actually includes .Net 2.0 with it.
The number of comments re backward compatibility are also incorrect. By default, the apps will use the latest version of .Net installed on a system. Yes, there are some breaking changes between versions, but if you hit these then the developer can specifiy which version the app requires.
If you don't know what you're talking about, best to keep shtum really.
a 'best fit' methodology apparently. Look at the data for this year, map it to the best set of previous years' data and base your prediction on that. Maybe they don't use this method anymore, but I wouldn't be surprised and this would explain why they get it wrong for long range forecasts. In fact, I doubt they really get many right, it's just that we've had the best snow in 30 years, so the media pick up on it more.
Exaggeration isn't science. Saying I disagree that climate change is man made does not mean I think I know better than 99.999999% of the world's scientific community (of which, I would only guess at most 1% are authoratative on the subject). The basis of my opinion is from an esteemed meteorologist of 40 years standing. Who also has colleagues of the same opinion. That, alongside the stench of a politicised science really makes me question what is being spoon fed to us.
