12:00 AM - Why the British are wrong about Guantanamo

First please read this piece on the BBC:

The idea that closing it down will not help the situation. These people will still not get a fair, quick trial regardless of where they are held. The problem isn't location, its timing and the lack of justice.

12:00 AM - McKinnon might be brought to US for trial...

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/4758743.stm I'm not sure how to feel about this one. The guy did break into US military computers. He should be punished for that, but I'm not sure we need to bring him here to do it. The sentence of 70 years he's looking at is rediculous. 700,000 dollars in fines is too. Its possible it was that expensive to fix, but they should have hardened their systems to begin with. Some guy in the UK shouldn't even get access to our frickin networks. firewalls people! (not to get into other factors) What i'm not sure about here is if he's a hacker or cracker. Hackers say he was only hacking and the government says he was cracking but call it hacking. (its different) Did he actually just view shit or did he fuck it up?

12:00 AM - MidnightBSD update

I downloaded the mini iso which wouldn't work as ftp isn't ready yet but it was just to see if it boots. (40mb to server and then down to this box at wmu) I've still got some freebsd specific information in there i need to fix. I also need to update some of the files in relation to 6.1 release. Mostly drivers need importing and some fixes for NFS.

I'm just excited the damn thing actually built properly for once. doing automated snap builds can't happen for awhile. It just takes too much time and i need a box just for that.
