Spelling Fart

The spelling bee is awful, how can it be steel not steal, and knight not night, or knit not nit. Perhaps the nasal drivel English has differentiation in these words, but I fail to perceive it. The test is made unbeatable in order to prove the Times / their esteemed American university of something or other some obvious point about the degeneration of English. Perhaps the point would be better driven in if they employed a bunch of sodden drunks next time to slur the words out and obliterate any chance of getting any words right?

Also, at Watashi's comment on the pronunciation of "apple", I do hope that was facetious, the same as in America those things slightly taller than hills are referred to as "Mown Ens" and the T sound is simply superfluous candy floss to throw people off.

Rare bug blights Lotus Notes

Buffer Overflow rarity

All the rampant Notes bashing aside... A "BO" can not in any sense be considered rare either as far as security bugs are concerned, as a sloppy programmer forgetting to do simple input validation is unfortunately all too common, so no, this is definitely not a rare bug, more like a dime-a-dozen bug found in yet another piece of software.
