Metallica in 'What the Fuck are they trying this time' shocker.

rik: Metallica are sueing another band over the use of chords.
_dav: "It's nothing personal against them," he added. "We intend to enforce our rights with any band intending to use Metallica-branded chords in the future." "

Re: Script Language for the BeBox

Angus_Young: "Perl is like a giant diesel-powered Leatherman pocket tool .. with microscope, lathe, chainsaw, and laser scalpel tools, a trailer hitch, tank treads, a radio, and a winch..."
Angus_Young: "Python is Legos.. You can start out with Duplo, then work up to regular Lego blocks, but they'll both work together. As you get more advanced, there are gears and engines sets avalible, and pneumatics."
Angus_Young: "Tcl is like a small swiss army knife. Rexx is also a small swiss army knife, but it's an older surplus model from IBM."

The Missing Open Source Projects, from an Enterprise POV

coderman: 3. Single Sign-on -- More than 50% of the calls to help desks are for password resets. Merrill Lynch now spends 2 billion a year on IT. 20% of that is user support, and if half of that is password resets, are they really spending $200 million a year?
matthew: Note bad logic in previous comment. Password resets are the 5 second support calls; all the money goes to the hours-long ones.
coderman: software rulez
coderman: yeah, i bet they waste a mere $2-4 million on passwords

lemonodor: from the forum: "The mounting kit is currently only for the Beetle with the newer swivel mount cupholders and is made by Belkin for VWoA.

burtonator: fuck is this site funny!
burtonator: "Patricia Lewis (grade 8) did an experiment to see if life can evolve from non-life. Patricia placed all the non-living ingredients of life - carbon (a charcoal briquet), purified water, and assorted minerals (a multi-vitamin) - into a sealed glass jar. The jar was left undisturbed, being exposed only to sunlight, for three weeks. (Patricia also prayed to God not to do anything miraculous during the course of the experime
coderman: "As a Creation Scientist ..." -- that says it all right there.
