It's about time!
Now... if they'll shut down Craigslist's Buy Drugs Here and Burgling sections, we can tell all the cops to go home and take a nap!

None of you see the dreaded "planet eater" / doomsday machine that Captain Kirk bravely fought from his La-Z-Boy recliner many years ago? Hmm. Tadpole it is then.
If it really looked like a flying sperm cell, we surely would have been treated to a dozen or more Paris references by now. Tail's much too thick.
Pure speculation, of course. Perhaps Microsoft bought the Storm bots to bolster their tragic security reputation? They surely have deeper pockets than random V14gr@ pushers, and they can't have spent $300 million on those damned silly commercials with BillG and Jerry.
I also have a really hard time believing that their "Last Century Tech (TM)" signature-based AV brought down a state of the art botnet.
It'd be the best advertising money they ever spent, IMO.
Dude! You must be aware that Novell management is Always poised to do something intensely, insanely stooopid. I ran Netware from 3.11 to 6.5, and finally just couldn't take the suspense anymore! (plus they stopped supporting the NW kernel after promising 5 more years, then later dropped to their knees for MS, etc. etc.)
I'm happily on RHES4 for the important stuff and Fedora 8 for my desktops. Fedora 9 sucked mightily in undefinable ways - couldn't stand it for more than a day or so even after several attempts. I have high hopes for 10 though!

Well, I had a live-in girlfriend 20ish years ago who had a very unusual level of talent with her tongue that helped the relationship last some 4 years. Fortunately, I didn't marry her.
To those of you whose mind dwells in the gutter, she, um, spoke very pleasantly. That's obviously what I meant.
>A more sensible idea might be to require all licenced premises to carry a fixed % of their shelf space to low/non-alcoholic beers & wine. And in the case of low/non-alcoholic beers & wine to be compelled to sell them at cost rather than hiking their prices.
Right! and to prevent obesity, stores should carry a fixed % of their shelf space to food that tastes Bad, so people won't eat so much of it. Brilliant!
I've experienced the joy of visiting a state with stupid liquor laws. Couldn't buy a scotch in the freaking "beer and wine" bar, so I walked down the block and bought a bottle. Washington state, btw; stupid hosers.
>Lots of large companys use novell's e-Directory solution as an alternative to AD. (a lot of people think its better)
Yes, it's much better imo. We're still migrating away from eDirectory here. Curiously enough, Novell still, to this day, doesn't provide a Netware Client for Linux that isn't unusable crap.
You can authenticate to your SUSE workstation through AD, though. Novell was once great, now they're a pathetic joke. May MS follow in their dottering footsteps :-D
