top Vermont Yankee Nuclear Plant To Close In 2014
They apparently have 60 years to decommission the plant.
"Although the plant will close by the end of next year, its legacy will live on at the Vernon site on the banks of the Connecticut River. Entergy has 60 years to decommission the plant under a plan approved by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The time will allow the company to accumulate money in a fund set up to pay for dismantling and cleaning up the site."

top Big Brother In the School Cafeteria?
Thanks Bill! I was going to post something similar. My son also uses a PIN to pay for food. Nothing "big brother" about it. I can easily fund the account online and verify he's been eating lunch. Fox News is blowing a bunch of FUD up everyone's ass.

Not only that, but it allows the wireless NIC to both connect to another WAP as well as act as a WAP (ie, you only need one wireless card, not two).

This isn't crippling. They are doing you a favor by not letting you "upgrade". Whoever thought that upgrading was a good idea should be taken out back and shot.

Your passwords are utterly useless to you when they are saved. Pretty sad that you can't remember your passwords.

No, they just need to get a New Englander (well, one of the ones that knows how to drive) to get it unstuck. We have lots of experience getting stuck in deep snow.
Disable the traction control and rock it back and forth.

A bullet to the head is a lot more gruesome than being hanged (namely for the people having to watch). Also, the family of the person being executed might appreciate an intact body.

Exactly what I was about to point out. The cheapest macbook starts at $1000. You can find low-end pc notebooks for under $500.

The question then would be, is 6 vulnerable to this? Or any of the vulnerabilities since it's last patch (early 07 I think). I don't have 6 to test with, but I have to wonder when they say previous versions may be vulnerable.. Sounds like they just want you to upgrade a product that may be working fine (and at a cost of $99 for a standard upgrade copy, multiplied by the number of employees in your corp that may have it.. that's not cheap).
