Dirty, dirty PCs: The X-rated picture guide

Makes me wish...

I'd taken a photo of the 400 year old kit with the MFM double-height 5 MB drive in the test equipment; no one else in the IT group even remembered what that was, let alone how to do anything with it. Sadly, it was dead before it hit the ground (several times). One of the guys wondered why the drive needed two ribbon cables... Somebody else wanted to know how expensive a big drive like that would be...

Arkansas cop tasers 10-year-old girl

She didn't have a gun

I find it hard to believe that a 10 year old (boy or girl) would need to be even briefly tasered unless they had a loaded gun and presented an immediate danger to someone. The US cops seem to have a love of all things taser and seem completely oblivious to the fact that they are perceived to be nothing more than overgrown morons incapable of independent thought. Unable to actually think for themselves, they go ahead and taser the person to buy some time.
