“From what I hear they just did it to prove they could. And they took the numbers as a sort of trophy or souvenir.”
“As I understand the situation, local law enforcement would not have a hard time finding this young man, and a call from police in the United States might be enough for them to decide that they would prefer the kit not be available on Argentinean websites.”
At the presidential campaign site of Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry, complementing the ubiquitous “donate online” feature is a recently added blog with daily updates from the campaign trail and a listing of meetings held across the country.
9:35 – General manager of Junction Point Studios, Warren Spector, is doing a demo of the game. Mickey can use paint and paint thinner to erase characters, objects, or the ground. Or they can restore characters. “Players can dynamically change the game world to save it.” Spector really pitching this as a deep game with unique choices for players.
One of the two former NIRT employees interviewed by Reuters described being on a team that once worked around the clock for five-straight days to patch software hackers had used to gain access to Fed systems in an attempt to obtain passwords. The former employee worked through several of those nights, taking naps at a desk in the office.
“For a long time it was assumed that sound simply enters the ear and goes up to the brain,” says Trevor Cox, a professor of Acoustic Engineering at the University of Salford. “Well, there’s actually more connections coming down from the brain to the ear than there are going back up it.”
But the best part of the site (at least for my kids) is the More Marvel tab, which leads to all sorts of interactive fun including coloring pages, mazes, puzzles, wallpapers and more. While the coloring pages are great, I was a bit disappointed in the mazes and word searches.

I would much rather have seen an artist-drawn maze with characters interacting throughout.
It’ll be here in the Oregon Convention Center. We’ve got Hall B reserved for us. Last year we had about 3,000 people come through. That’s our most-attended show so far. It’s been growing pretty steadily since its founding. I think the first show we had about 150 or 200 people.
Re-entry prediction updates should be coming in throughout the morning to pin point the target zone and time. If you would like to track UARS in realtime, check out the NORAD data.

“These systems are used more and more to police public morals and public order,” Davies, including “anti-social” behavior such as littering, drunkenness, evading meters and underage smoking.
While WiMAX-certified equipment for “fixed” wireless access will start reaching consumers en masse early next year, the mobile flavor of WiMAX, which enables broadband access while walking around town or driving down the highway, isn’t expected to hit the scene until 2007 or 2008. And it’s unclear what carriers and vendors will be involved. “It’s a much more confusing space,” said Sumi.
In a phone call with WIRED, Assa Abloy’s hospitality business unit head Christophe Sut downplayed the risk to hotel guests, and noted that F-Secure’s researchers needed years of reverse-engineering work and expertise to develop their lock-hacking technique. But he urged hotels who use the Vingcard Vision locks to install the upgrade. “This is the new normal. If you have software you need to upgrade it all the time,” Sut says. “We upgrade our phones and computers. We need to upgrade locks as well.”
