Burying a Mainframe In Style

Cicero382 Re:Why recycle it? (197 comments)

Note that they have disconnected it and buried it and it's STILL not secure.

Cicero382 Cicero382 writes  |  more than 7 years ago

Cicero382 writes "The Register has a story entitled "Welcome to the Fourth Reich" which describes how Der Fuhrer^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^HPresident Bush is effectively rewriting the Constitution. From the article: "The government, not the courts, will now be deciding what is cruel and inhumane treatment".

I'm actually a bit of a fan of the good ol' US of A. I've worked there and had a happy time... but I wouldn't like to be there now.

Is it just me, or are others watching in horror as the world's greatest democracy slides into the abyss?"
