Sunnier? Down here it's rained more or less constantly for the past 30 days, with maybe two or three days of sunshine mixed in. And it's supposed to keep raining all week. Bah. At least it's stayed cool enough that the humidity hasn't sucked.

88% of Electronics Exports Reused, Not Dumped

Rtech Re:Lots of usable tech hitting the dumpster.... (157 comments)

I second this-- I have a computer that I built back in late 01-02 that's 2.26 GHz that's chugging right along. Does just about any kind of processing a business or home would need and since I didn't skimp on the graphics card it even handles Compiz with ease. Nice case on it, running Ubuntu, and people think it's almost brand-new instead of ancient. Granted, I have had more computers since then but the point remains that old hardware isn't necessarily junk.

Researchers Demo BIOS Attack That Survives Disk Wipes

Rtech Re:Fatal flaw: No BIOS reset (396 comments)

This won't be necessarily be a problem with me as I just bought a new Asus motherboard that has a backup BIOS! I don't know if this is a shameless plug or not as I don't work for Asus but the board is an ASUS M3A78 Pro... now that I look online(I don't have the manual with me) I don't see the feature but I'm 99% sure I saw it. Call it 100% but I don't have the manual. I did think it was relevant to the article so I figured I'd mention it.
