Bits and Pieces for the Week of July 8 - 14

I came across this highly recommended free site: Secunia Software Inspector. I tried it and it works well. It will inspect your programs and let you know which ones need updating (and gives you the link, to boot!), which is a great way to help keep your computer secure since most program updates these days are for plugging security holes.

I know that the President's Office has an expense account, but Bush has gone on a four-year spending spree (Mike)

The staff of this medical professionals web site have some great reviews of the movie Sicko (Mike)

Yay! Lakers finally make a good decision. (Mike)

How New York City Firefighters really feel about Rudy Giuliani running for President (Mike)

The US has close to 160,000 troops in Iraq, yet a $282 million bank robbery takes place? BTW, it was in US dollars. That will buy some major hardware for whatever faction took the cash! (7 of 6)

Just a polite but firm reminder to everyone: the Republicans are sincerely hoping for another terrorist attack in the U.S. (Mike)

Quite the harbinger: U.S. says al Qaeda will "lash out" in Iraq. Can't the DoD come up with something new? (7 of 6)

California oil refiner puts decals on gas pumps which admit that they are ripping you off (Mike)

Watch how Fox News trivializes global warming and equates Gore with the Nazis. (Mike)

This is messed up. Metallica's, James Hetfield was detained at London's Luton Airport on Thursday because of his "Taliban-like beard." (7 of 6)

This disabled Veteran's case is very similar to mine. "Entitlement to individual unemployability is denied." Mine was approved however. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. Or not. (7 of 6)
