Churchill Accused of Sealing UFO Files, Fearing Public Panic
And in the part about Noah's Ark, it is never mentioned that Noah rounded up two aliens.
Why would the aliens have needed to be inside Noah's Ark to survive? They were else-where, cruising through the Universe...

Locking Down Linux Desktops In an Enterprise?
Generalizations aren't fair. I'd like to say that first of all I'm a geek... I'm also a chemical engineer and I recently used to work as a sales rep in a medium-large global company (~1600 people world-wide). This is how things were in Mexico's branch.
From the moment I started there, I spent a lot of time trying to get the IT department to switch from using Excel as a database!
Well, to be fair, they were actually using an ERP: An ancient version of BPCS (black background, green text) running in an AS/400. But, they did monthly exports of the data to Excel sheets. Then, a lot of time was wasted on manually generating sales reports (even though the data, after each sale, was already in the system... but you had to manually fill several spreadsheets).
You also had to be very careful when sending or receiving attachments, since they had a 2MB limit for email attachments, through the VERY-slow VPN. A lot of spreadsheets were 9MB in size -- zipped to a bit less than 2MB...
I remember the odyssey of creating a Contribution Margin percentage per customer chart: I had to sanitize the data though, since I can't tell if a faulty export script or BPCS' fields had been accumulating trailing spaces that were intoxicating Excel's data.
Even though I had a great time working there... I remember suffering a lot because I met a lot of resistance to change or innovation... and the monotony of filling out reports was just excruciating.

Google Search Flagging Everything As Potentially Harmful
