Future of combat
Slap a hundred pounds of dragonskin armor on there, plus a minigun, and you've got a soldier that can mow down any opposition smaller than a tank.

The full story of the hack is up on MichelleMalkin's website.
The bottom line:
-he was only behind one proxy.
-he didn't hack the password, he answered the "security" questions correctly after googling background information.
-he did it to try and find evil secrets, but found boring, non-issue stuff.
-he read every email in the account.
I have seen the most bizarre software glitches in Vista, on several machines. Actually, on every machine with Vista that I have had the misfortune to work with. It is shiny, yes, but the bizarre glitches and random crashes make Vista one operating system that I hope to avoid for as long as possible. My two primary computers still run XP.
Why don't the "scientists" (politicians) make a PREDICTION? You know, as in "if we reduce the number of cars on the road by such and such, the temperature of the Earth will decrease/increase by such and such degrees centigrade."
Answer: because when a solid, testable prediction is made, it generally turns out to be complete and total bullspunky. It's much more effective to incite general panic by saying "the planet's going to DIE!" instead of giving solid, provable numbers.
It's all bull. Don't throw trash out your window, but feel free to drive an SUV with impunity (assuming you can afford the gas...).
I find it ironic that the UK is more concerned with pencil-pushers with microphones than with bloodthirsty third-world savages that want to cut off the heads of schoolteachers for the horrible crime of.... naming a teddy-bear Mohamed.
Did I say "ironic?" I meant "idiotic." Enjoy your Jihad.
Hasn't the Earth's temperature remained constant (or even decreased) for the past twenty years? If so, how could global "warming" be causing pines to die?
> The BC pines are dying not from "warming",

That makes a lot more sense. Geez. In an article about global warming FUD, The Register helps to spread global warming FUD! Let's all burn our cars!! DEATH TO TECHNOLOGY!!!
Eliminate global warmingcooling.
1.) Launching satellites into Earth orbit.
2.) Launching probes from the Moon into deep space.
3.) Modifying the tech -- turning it into a train system.
4.) Modifying the tech -- turning it into an aircraft launching system.
5.) Modifying the tech -- turning it into an amusement park ride.
6.) Disposing of violent dictators from 200 miles away.
7.) Just for the hell of it. :)
"On Tuesday, the Federal Court in Australia ruled that Japan's hunting and killing of whales near the Australian coastline or off Australian Antarctic Territory is illegal.
However, the court noted that unless the Japanese whalers entered Australian jurisdiction where they could be seized, there was no practical way the order could be enforced.
Japan considers the sanctuary's waters to be the high seas. Only New Zealand, France, Norway and the United Kingdom recognise [sic] Australia's claim."

"The most recent injury report was made by two Japanese crewmen [!!!] who claim being splashed with foul-smelling butyric acid during Sea Shepherd's recent action in the Ross Sea. The Sea Shepherds admitted to throwing six one-litre bottles of butyric acid onto the deck of the Nisshin Maru although Paul Watson denied that any Japanese crew could have been harmed, saying that butyric acid is "a simple non-toxic butter acid, basically rancid butter". However, safety data sheets warn of the corrosive properties of the acid, which can burn skin and eyes, and harm aquatic organisms."

A quick Google reveals that this acid is NOT something that you would want splashed on you, especially if it got in your eyes.
The Californian government likes to try random stunts like this (it was also considering a ban on incandescent light bulbs).
Speaking as a Californian, heating isn't a significant problem, but cooling sure is. We're talking 110 degrees Fahrenheit, in the shade. Any idiot politician that advocates state-controlled air conditioning here will find himself voted out of office, recalled or impeached.
P.S.: Arnold was a pretty good "governator" until he started cow-towing to the kind of nutjobs that want to, for example, ban air conditioning.
