"red wings parade"

In deed on this day, Lord Stanley's cup will be carried through the streets of Detroit, Michigan, down Woodward Avenue (Michigan Highway 1) where crowds will worship it with cheap beer and pummel it with paint ball guns.

US air force chiefs sacked in robot-armada brouhaha

Army Air Corps

The USAF was created from the Army Air Corps after WWII. The bomb stopped the war, and "the They" needed someone to handle the nukes. It's one of the primary reasons the USAF was created.

"kind of crap simply doesn't happen"

When everybody assumes somebody else is in charge, stupid things happen. Getting rid of the potted palms at the top won't fix this, but it might help. This is pinpointing the fickle finger of fate directly at individuals who were ultimately responsible, not a group where everyone could easily blame each other. The response is slightly less nauseating than a pack of frightened dogs desperately trying to hide underneath each other, and coming from the Bush White House, it once again smells of deceit, lies, and cover-up.

Agreement on the non-sexy Afghan drone reasons, we didn't hear anything about that from the "News" disorganizations on the west side of the pond.

Linux

Make for all the Linux distributions, too

Make with the .RPM, .DEB, and .STFU files for those few of us that really DO use Linux and want the latest without waiting for the dead-dog-slow distributors to catch up.

Neat idea

I use TrueCrypt for sharing secure files between Windows and Linux, but I hadn't run VMs with it. This is a fun idea. I've played with the recent release of PuppyLinux 3.00 with added development (compilation) environment, it's rather full featured although small, perfect for running virtual machines underneath it. Getting TrueCrypt to compile with it might be a trick, but should be possible.

More fun... think we can get TrueCrypt and VMWare on an OLPC 'XO' box?
