Texas Textbooks Battle Is Actually an American War

jtshaw Re:A Christian's take (1252 comments)

Evolution is taught as a theory, not a law, so nobody is actually saying that it is absolutely correct. It is one of many scientific theories that is taught in science classes.

Creationism is not a scientific theory at all, and thus doesn't belong. I could absolutely see speaking of it in the context of a history class or, obviously, a class about religion.

I'd also hope you never have 1 person in charge of 3M lines of code.

A Good Reason To Go Full-Time SSL For Gmail

jtshaw This still drives me nuts with Google Apps (530 comments)

If I direct people to mail..com via http it forwards them to the insecure version after login. Unfortunately you can't hit mail..com with https and as a result to be secure people who use my Google Apps mail have to type the long drawn out mail.google.com/a/ to connect to it. I can't seem to find a setting anywhere to force security.... I first submitted the https->http thing to Google when I started using it in like 2004.... about damn time they started doing something about it.
