Re: [Full-Disclosure] The 'good worm' from HP


Wowzers folks! I seem to be getting messages that are a cross from the
"full disclosure " group and the "Rhizome Multidispliciplinary Art
Group." If this was iontentional I am quite happy to cheer it on. If
it's a bug that's causing it I will have to track it down and see wassup
in all of this stuff.

Re: man attempts to patent a plot


Missed this one and it is about a month and a half old. But I doubt this
will fly. It really really fails the "non-obvious" section of patent
law. People who come from or are associated in many way with that
certain technical institute can describe levels of arrogance the rest of
us can only dream of. Of course I have meant lots of computer science
grads who assumes that since they can understand one complex field they
somehow have the same abilities in all. I kid you not that I have heard
things like: :"Well he understands the Unix Kernel and so brain surgery
would be easy for him to understand and do..." Of course the pewrson
who said this was talking about the BSD flavour of Unix, which come from
Berkeley not MIT. Although Unix was supposed to be a simpler form of
Multics which did pretty much come from MIT. Speasking of fun things
about anothetr such place, Caltech, Jack Parsons who was a real "rocket
scientist" in addition to be a person who was deeply into the magic(k)al
theories of Aleister Crowley. When one has intellectual power to spare
one ends up using it for all sorts of things, it is easy to get wowed by
one's own power and this can cause trouble or at least great social
enbarassmenent.

Re: NYPD raid on NYC's Kim's Video


Giggle! This is why I don't like NYC. I wonder who paid who what to have
this done. Why did the "competent authority" grant a search warrant and
which Assisatant to the Assistant DA decided to lay charges and who he is
a freind of and all those good NYC things.

Re: NYPD raid on NYC's Kim's Video


Fussy, Fussy details. Which agency's name is on the search warrant and who
granted it? Wonder which media company paid for this one.

Re: More Google Maps


Oh has been able to do this for quite awhile. If you are a weather freak
there is also a very nice open militarty site that gives real good info in
real time. Usually people keep this stuff quiet because some right wing
nut job call their congressman and something nice goes away. Actually I
think it is good that I get to use some of the stuff (I won't call them
toys because they are tools) In fact not military but a tool that looks
like a toy is called "The Weather Pixie" and it lives here:
http://weatherpixie.com/index.php?page=find&place=KWVI&trooper(&type=&lang=

It take all that METAR report stuff airports and other stations and turns
them into nice icons or plain English, or French or whatever. The feature
that lets you at places around the place of your choice is partioularly
good. It is great for teaching 7 to 9th graders and maybe even adults the
basics of atmosopheric science. So not only is truth out there but so are
the tools.
