Now we'll have to buy 10x more hardware to keep up in SETI@Home. We'll never finish!

There's no rcp, scp, or ftp. Aside from manually entering in code and compiling, how do you get anything INTO this machine to make it do anything useful? I see there's telnet but only a loopback interface... somebody, quick! Do something useful!

Didn't they sue someone over the use of the word "Book" (teachersbook) or something like that? This was a common phrase to apply to a year book. This kind of stuff is just beyond me...nobody should be able to own common words or letters.
Soon enough each individual letter will be owned and anybody caught using any of them will have their pants sued off of them.
Aside from the 24 letters, I wonder how far into extended ASCII (or worse yet UNICODE) they'll get. I claim umlaut.
