Quote of the Day - The trouble is that everyone talks about reforming others, and no one thinks about reforming himself.
I'm Hacked OffMIPTC GOT HACKED! The site's been down for a day and a half, and we're still trying to get rid of all of the text and graphics, which is apparently still embedded deep in the site. We're working on it. (You can scroll down to read the message, posted on Tuesday).
Obviously, I don't agree with the message.
I also don't know who did it, and a search for Net Devil reveals that this hacking technique is likely a Trojan horse. The Net Devil website has no information and instead provides an error message.
I guess it's a form of internet graffiti. Now I'll just have to learn How to Become A Hacker.
The Government Discovers the InternetWhat do you get when you link two supercomputers together? If I were Johnny Carson, I'd have a witty response like one big superconfuser. But, I'm not. Johnny, that is.
The USEPA and the Department of Energy have decided to start using the internet. And to get it accomplished, we humans had to write a Memorandum of Understanding, just in case the computers didn't.
According to sources, the now-connected supercomputers will "work in computational toxicology, the application of computer-based statistical techniques and molecular genetics that allow chemical testing based on a chemical's molecular structure and its effects on genes." They expect the effort to reduce animal testing and provide better toxicity information for chemicals.
The computers not only slice and dice, but they also "provide better and faster runs of environmental models such as the Community Multi-Scale Air Quality model, an important tool for states to meet upcoming deadlines for their air quality attainment plans," according to the USEPA.
Why is this important? The government has finally decided to work together. Well, at least two of their computers can finally get along.
