around the traps

  • Plasma TVs: a girl's new best friend - Home Theatre - AtHome - Technology: Diamonds are no longer a girl's best friend, according to a new US study that found three of four women would prefer a new plasma TV to a diamond necklace.
  • God takes an almighty battering from Gen-Y | FEWER than half of young Australians believe in God, but a growing number are turning towards tarot readers and psychics for answers. "I don't believe in god, but I do believe in crusty hippies!" said one Gen-Y youth. "Hey it's not like you can expect me to try and make a decision on my own."
  • messy networks... and how.
  • The Sydney Morning Herald Blogs: The Daily Truth / Some days I just don't get it Archives: The idea that there might be people out there who are worried that they can't properly feed their children, or that there might be children in my own street who, through sheer luck of the draw, wouldn't know a good breakfast but for the Red Cross, shouldn't come as a shock, I guess. But it did. And when I woke this morning to the news that Rio Tinto had posted a half-yearly profit of nearly $5 billion, and that three desperados crashed their car through a servo to make off with the ATM, and that, while all of this was going on, someone thinks Elvis's teddy bear worth $99,000, I really started wondering about the guy who invented money in the first place, and what for.
  • Woman forces US record industry to drop file-sharing case | The Register : Marson argued that as a cheerleader teacher she had had hundreds of girls through her house, any one of whom could have used her computer. "I've had hundreds of cheerleaders through my house" probably isn't an argument many people could try. But it would certainly be worth seeing the judge's face. She also used a wireless internet network, meaning that people outside of her house could have used her internet connection. That's an interesting point. If someone runs an insecure wireless network, literally anyone with a wireless card can use their account. Some people also point out that the average wireless network's security can be broken easily enough for a halfway serious hacker (or bored teenager). How can the RIAA prove that it didn't happen?

Re God takes an almight battering: This article suggests that the christian church has the copyright on GOD, that psychics are evil and that you have to choose between god and psychics, when hey wait a minute, weren't the "prophets" visionaries too? And the survey was interestingly carried out and published by the Monash Uni with the help of the Australian Catholic Universities and the Christian Research Association, so it of course has no bias or trickery in it whatsoever....I didnt think I'd live to see hell freeze over.
