The Critical Battle for Iraq's Energy - Attacks by Saboteurs Cripple Infrastructure

coderman: ""What they're doing is focusing efforts on intelligent attacks on infrastructure, especially oil and electricity," said a senior U.S. diplomat, who spoke on condition of anonymity. "The number of attacks is down, but the effectiveness of the attacks is up significantly."
coderman: "Almost the entire federal budget is generated by exports of crude oil, and, according to the Brookings Institution in Washington, revenue from oil exports in November dropped by nearly $700 million, almost 36 percent, from the previous month. The number of attacks on pipelines and other oil and gas infrastructure in November reached 30, almost tripling from October."
coderman: if some dissident groups in the us decide to try this tactic they will have a field day with vast swaths of unprotected national infrastructure here. ugggg, not looking forward to that.

A Wide Variety of Protest Planned for Inauguration

coderman: "Anarchist Resistance said it will stage a "festive and rowdy march" from Franklin Square. A message posted on its Web site says: "There's nothing left to salvage in this empire that is the U.S. government. It's time to bring it down."
coderman: now that is more like it! much better than previous reports that the anarchists were going to wave puppets around. what the fuck kind of statement is that? OOOH LOOK AT OUR PUPPETS>
coderman: "Protest organizers, some of whom expressed outrage at the multimillion-dollar price tag for the inauguration, said they are worried that heightened security will stifle dissent." -- uhh, yes. that is the whole fucking purpose of the various restrictions put on demonstrations, and the aggresive policing of them.

Rehnquist is not doing well. :(

Why the Sun seems to be 'dimming'

coderman: "But perhaps the most alarming aspect of global dimming is that it may have led scientists to underestimate the true power of the greenhouse effect."
coderman: "What has been surprising is that this extra energy has so far resulted in a temperature rise of just 0.6 degree Celsius."
coderman: "But it now appears the warming from greenhouse gases has been offset by a strong cooling effect from dimming - in effect two of our pollutants have been cancelling each other out."
coderman: "This means that the climate may in fact be more sensitive to the greenhouse effect than previously thought."

Pentagon Spurned Plan to Initiate Enemy Homosexuality

coderman: "The U.S. military rejected a 1994 proposal to develop an "aphrodisiac" to spur homosexual activity among enemy troops but is hard at work on other less-than-lethal weapons, defense officials said Sunday."
coderman: mwahahaah. what the hell?

matthew_: WASHINGTON - U.S. commandos are hunting for secret nuclear and chemical weapons sites and other targets in Iran, and have a plan to turn the hard-line Islamic country into the next front in the war on terrorism.
matthew_: "It's not if we're going to do anything against Iran. They're doing it," an ex-intelligence official tells this week's issue of The New Yorker.
matthew_: We all win the pool.

Bush Says Election Ratified Iraq Policy

coderman: "President Bush said the public's decision to reelect him was a ratification of his approach toward Iraq and that there was no reason to hold any administration officials accountable for mistakes or misjudgments in prewar planning or managing the violent aftermath."
coderman: ... hehehe... HEEHEHEHE.. OH MY GOD, WE'VE CREATED A MONSTER!!!
coderman: "As for perhaps the most notorious terrorist, Osama bin Laden, the administration has so far been unsuccessful in its attempt to locate the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks."
coderman: "Asked why, Bush said, "Because he's hiding." -- LOL, BEST QUOTE EVAR

Report: U.S. Conducting Secret Missions Inside Iran

coderman: ""The civilians in the Pentagon want to go into Iran and destroy as much of the military infrastructure as possible."
coderman: " One former high-level intelligence official told The New Yorker, "This is a war against terrorism, and Iraq is just one campaign. The Bush administration is looking at this as a huge war zone. Next, we're going to have the Iranian campaign."

Shake it like a Polaroid picture!

coderman: "Enabling, yes ... in the sense that it will enable mobile-phone users to inadvertantly bash in the heads of innocent bystanders while frantically attempting to "type" CUl8r on their phones."
coderman: man.. GMRS, bluetooth, GPS, WAAS, J2ME, accelerometer. what more are they going to cram into phones? w00t
coderman: also check out this link mentioned in comments - AIR MESSAGING

Cassini-Huygens - New images from Titan

coderman: why do all the wacko's live in oregon? WHY???
coderman: and i say wacko as a token of respect. afterall, if ashcroft can be attorny general, wacko looks mighty appealing.

The classic "mother earth, mother board" by stephenson.

coderman: "If the trawler does succeed in hauling the cable all the way up out of the water, the only way out of the situation, or at least the simplest, is to cut the cable. Dave Handley once did a study of a cable that had been suddenly and mysteriously severed. Hauling up the cut end, he discovered that someone had sliced through it with a cutting torch."
coderman: " There is also the obvious threat of sabotage by a hostile government, but, surprisingly, this almost never happens. When cypherpunk Doug Barnes was researching his Caribbean project, he spent some time looking into this, because it was exactly the kind of threat he was worried about in the case of a data haven."
coderman: "Somewhat to his own surprise and relief, he concluded that it simply wasn't going to happen. "Cutting a submarine cable," Barnes says, "is like starting a nuclear war. It's easy to do, the results are devastating, and as soon as one country does it, all of the others will retaliate."


coderman: "According to the people who had been there a while, when SPUR fired you could be in the parking lot on the left with your eyes closed, and the blue flashes you'd see were fast neutrons zipping through your eyeballs. Nice, eh?
coderman: " As a fun aside, while the tower is being used, birds often fly into the beam and burst into flames."
simmo: Sir, we found the WMDs

Coder's guide to drinking alone

coderman: $9 bottle of potter's 100 proof vodka. 1 brita filter. iterate 6 times.

Why is subversion a big pile of crap?

coderman: there are about 8 reasons...
coderman: "So here's the first mistake: the idea of a transactional FS is like a shiny new hammer. It's pretty natural to let it possess you and start running around looking for nails."
coderman: also, greg hudson strikes me as a fucking asshole.
coderman: this is forgivable if the asshole contributes to productive and useful technologies. but then they masquerade defficiencies as strengths and badger those who attempt to ascertain the truth they become merely a an annoyance.
coderman: and ive probably just offended a number of his friends. but thats ok. everyone hates me already. :) :) :)
coderman: <burtonator> and this fucking battle between svn, codeville, arch, and bitkeeper is pissing me off! -- BECAUSE THEY ALL SUCK. MWAHAHAHA.
coderman: actually, clearcase was pretty cool. it just cost a fuckload.
simmo: Notlogic: arch sucks too, therefore subversion is good
simmo: problem | solution
