Court Says Craigslist Sperm Donor Must Pay Child Support
What the father failed to do in this situation was draft up a contractual agreement with the other woman in this case, with her agreeing to reimburse him for any expenses or support related to the child in perpetuity.
Which would still leave him out-of-pocket until he could collect from her, but it would (probably, IANAL, your state or provincial laws may vary) be a legal arrangement.

Ask Slashdot: Ideas and Tools To Get Around the Great Firewall?
Because that invites reciprocation of that attitude from other countries. Most people tend to get angry when foreigners from anywhere come into their country and intentionally disrespect the local cultural mores and laws.
I'll give you an easy, hyperbolic example:
By that same argument, how do you feel about Sudanese refugees performing female genital mutilation just down the street from where you live? How do you feel about them snorting in contempt at you when you show outrage, saying: "If a country doesn't respect my cultural norms, then why respect it at all?"
Ask Slashdot: Most Underappreciated Sci-Fi Writer?
"Starfish" and "Blindsight" are brilliant, dark pieces of claustrophobic sci-fi. I'm stunned that neither has been optioned for movies yet.

Compiling the WikiLeaks Fallout
As a non-american, I will continue to financially support Wikileaks (to a modest $20 a year, they're part of my christmas charity allotment), because while you may see this as damaging to american interests, I see it as furthering the interests of the entire world. I too, have looked through a good chunk of the released documents, so far. What I found allotted to "The stuff we already knew, but here's the details" of america's dirty laundry. Meh.
Long live wikileaks. I *do*, however, hope their next big releases focus on other countries, not just the USA. The current amero-centrism of wikileaks major releases is rather disappointing, but is probably more the result of opportunity than it is country-specific targeting.
YouTube's Bandwidth Bill May be Zero
The question is, though: To whom would they be selling those gobs of bandwidth? The nature of bandwidth, overall, remains geographically fixed; you can't sell (much) of your bandwidth capacity in the united states to a company in Japan; they still need the pipes going, overall, from Point A to Customer B.
At the volumes in which they are dealing with, they don't really have a lot of customers who can conceivably use that much bandwidth. So it's definitely in their best interests to trade with them preferentially.
If the options are A) Trade to defer costs, or B) Try to sell to others and discover nobody else wants to buy a tenth of our capacity, they'll usually find that A) is a smarter business decision.

Small, High-Resolution LCD Monitors?
I use the 22" version of those monitors, two of them, and depending on what I'm working on I use the built-in portrait swivel and switch to portrait mode at times. Particularly useful for working on projects that span four or five documents at a time.
