Florida man faces trial for feeding homeless

homeless

Maybe some kind of compromise could be reached. I mean nobody wants to encourage homelessness really.

How about food in exchange for sterilisation?

wii saturation

I have never bought a console in my life but have half decided to get a wii when it gets to about £100 pounds. I reckon a lot of other people are in my boat. HMS tightfist.

TV makers go ape for 100Hz LCDs

r8s

doubling the refresh rate on CRT tvs is definitely useful to fight against flicker as each phosphor will emit light in a burst rather than LCDs that emit a steady glow.

Having a couple of less significant bursts lessens the amount of flicker.

I think the only reason to do so on flat panel screens is another marketing ploy or because the 'in betweening' processes are now very good. Doubtful!

I remember my dad arguing with a sales man who told him a television refreshed at 100 Mhz

Also he had an argument with a man in a bike shop who said that one of those training machines you attach your bike to generated no heat.

re: Copyright, patents and the DMCA

I think there must be a point where you can copyright something numeric. After all, couldn't you claim that the contents of a DVD or a file is just a very long number?

It would be interesting if you could copyright any number, what x86 number would we be using now?

FBI agents 'abused Patriot Act powers'

duncan parkertron

problem

I'm not sure the issue is about having anything illegal to hide really. I think the worry is what an FBI individual could do with the information, such as blackmail a closet homosexual Mormon for example.
