Note to self: Remove hard drive from laptop the next time I’m re-entering MY OWN FUCKING COUNTRY!
Federal agents may take a traveler’s laptop or other electronic device to an off-site location for an unspecified period of time without any suspicion of wrongdoing, as part of border search policies the Department of Homeland Security recently disclosed.
Our government gives America’s public lands and waters to Big Oil. Big Oil extracts the oil and consumers are forced to buy it because they have no other choice of alternative technologies or fuels – it’s buy what Big Oil is selling or walk to work. Big Oil takes that money and invests that money not in cheaper, cleaner renewable energy, but in stock buybacks and dividends.

Who knew PHP’s libgd on Ubuntu doesn’t support imagerotate()? Annoying.
Using bundled libraries is security hell. It will never happen in Debian. And I very much doubt that it will happen in Ubuntu.
I thought PHP taking over the GD project was a good thing… This doesn’t make any sense! (0 comments)
Wow. I think Obama just won:
Speaking to reporters about the situation in Georgia, Sen. John McCain denounced the aggressive posture of Russia by claiming that:”in the 21st century nations don’t invade other nations.”

Sign of the times:
Miliband noted that Russia’s foreign exchange reserves have fallen by $16 billion and risk premiums for investing in Russia have soared since the crisis began. By contrast, when the Soviet Union attacked Czechoslovakia in 1968, “no one asked what impact its actions had on the Russian stock market. There was no Russian stock market.”
