Hack with sense of humour

Reading Time: < 1 minute

IT company SCO is currently involved in a legal argument over allegedly copied software ending up in Linux. Kudos to The Inq for flagging up this subversive website hack. Makes a pleasant difference from the usual scrawlings on site defacements. At the time of writing this was still up on the SCO site, though this will change when the SCO webmaster gets into work.

Respected Members of Congress on no-fly list

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Democrat Party congressman John Lewis who was a close associate of Dr Martin Luther King Jr, is on the terrorist watch list, what’s going on here. Someone find an old J Edgar Hoover memo which warned about black people in southern states getting uppity and wanting the white peoples seat on the bus? I know George Bush is conservative, but even he has two black people that I know of in his cabinet.

Lewis has distinguished company in Ted Kennedy (yes, related to Bobby and former president John F.). The bit that gets interesting is that they “can’t” take congressman Lewis off the list. The Republic Party Rally to gee up the troops for the next election starts in Nuremberg oops Freudian slip sorry New York, I wonder how many delegates will be on the no-fly list?
