Fighter jet crashes in suburban San Diego

Poor dad lost his entire family

I'm a local and have intimate knowledge of this "well manicured" neighborhood. They found the missing person today btw, a 16-mo girl who'd been upstairs (whereas her mom, grandma, and baby sister were downstairs and immediately found afterwards). The poor dad was seen kissing everyone goodbye in the driveway earlier that morning. They were a Korean immigrant family that had just 'moved up' to the neighborhood.

The house across the street had been for-sale earlier this year and my wife and kids and I had driven by twice in the past year. I've literally parked my car where the plane hit.

Needless to say, I've been following the news closely. And I think any/all discussion of the merits of the pilot, the plane, of the location of Miramar, etc is totally pointless. The only thing I'm gonna point-out is that witnesses said the pilot bailed at the last possible second, i.e., he clearly risked his life to try and steer the plane into the canyon (and only missed by about 100 feet).

Firefox update fixes four critical flaws

Please don't feed the troll!

Gotta love how the very first poster had to complain about something unrelated to the article, and then most of the rest of the comments were responding to that.

Of course, I don't have anything to say about the security patches either!

P.S. When they first introduced the new toolbar in the 3.0 Beta it sucked, but ever since 3.0.0 or 3.0.1 it's worked great and I now prefer it.

AMD's dual-core 'Kuma' specs listed?

Slower-speed suggests these are 'failed' parts?

Since these are such low-speed parts, and only dual-core, maybe they're going to be the less-perfect rejects from the X3 and X4 manufacturing runs. Isn't that what ATI did with their 9800 > 9500 GPUs?
