Experimental Box
Thursday
May 6, 2004
by : John Smith
This is a hacker story as the author goes about creating a computer to try things out. With spam and worms ravaging computers today we need very badly to explore these weapons of mass computer destruction in an effort to protect our equipment. What will be done with this computer you wouldn't want to do with a machine you depend upon for everyday work.

0900 Thursday - Scattered altocumulus castellanus 1/8th 8,000, visibility 15, -1º, wind 8 knots 330º, altimeter 30.13 WeatherLog

Tim's Tip of the Day

Though many of us can't get the morning, or the day, for that matter, going without a cup of coffee, it seems that this little vice is one of the most insignificant problems around. Caffiene in coffee is addictive, but actually improves alertness and may have other beneficial affects. Only a few people such as those with heart problems need to watch out for the stuff, but like all things, everything is best in moderation.

Kevin's find of the day

Oregon prisoners get flat-screen TVs (pdf) This story that appeared on CNN reports on an innovative programme to reward prisoners for good behaviour with small 7in. TVs for use in their cells. Though it seems like a luxury it really turns out to be an outstanding idea at providing and means of rehabilitating offenders.

This story includes a QuickTime rendition of a song by the "world's greatest entertainer."

Al Jolson
Monday
May 3, 2004
by : Timothy W. Shire
Tisdale : Michael Jackson, Elvis Prestley, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby all are just pale imitations of the very first superstar Al Jolson. When records, radio, movies and television were invented he was there front and centre and he was well aware of his position in history as he turned to the camera in the first motion picture with sound and ad-libed "You aint heard nothin' yet."

Democracy is neither scientific polling nor privatisation, and we donít need to compare apples with apples
Friday
April 30, 2004
by : Mario deSantis
Nipawin : The role of the citizen seems to be increasingly confusing as we get sucked into discussions that seem to rely upon pseudo-scientific polling while at the same time matters of serious and importance to us all are fluffed over as high salaried officials cut vital programmes or the fundamental right to medical care is undermined by political and power struggle conditions in the country.

Thursday
April 29, 2004
by : Mel Hurtig

by : Timothy W. Shire
