Senator Rand Paul Detained By the TSA
But that's the beauty of it: he was never under arrest! He was prevented from entering the secure area by which he might continue on his travels, but he certainly was never under arrest.
Picture Blocking Beer Cooler Keeps Your Face Out of Embarrassing Photos
A decent photographer would know to drag the shutter so you get a good blend of ambient light with enough fill flash to freeze the action and properly expose the subject.
Massachusetts Lottery Broken
If your business model is to purchase lottery tickets, then I'd think the lottery tickets would be a deductible cost of business leaving only the 80k to be taxed.

Employees Would Steal Data When Leaving a Job
To stab him in the back and steal his customers after you were fired is wrong, even if you didn't deserve to be fired.
That's not wrong, that's capitalism, baby.

Oh, you can have the sex, but only after it's been sanctioned by the church and blessed by the Lord Almighty via marriage. Anything else makes the Sweet Baby Jesus cry...

An Exercise To Model a "Solar Radiation Katrina"
Insurance comapnies had seen this before with Hurricane Betsy in New Orleans and Hurricane Camille in South Mississippi. They knew that huge-ass storms could come through and level the places and they knew the value of all the property. They relied on the out that Federal Flood insuance gives them on their policies. Except that when Katrina came through, it brought more water than Camille or Betsy ever did, so people got flooded who were living higher than the 500-year floodplain.
It was just a giant mess, but it wasn't helped that everyone involved made bad choices. I say this as a native of Biloxi, MS.

Suggestions For a Coax-To-Ethernet Solution?
I removed the possibility of crosstalk with my cable modem by separating the coax running to my office from the rest of the coax in the house. This way, the MI424WR's sit on a single piece of coax and only talk to themselves. I have purchased 3 MI424WR's total as one of the original two I purchas3ed for this use died mysteriously after 6 months. It could have been more an environmental failure (office, small space, pet fur) than hardware, but I'm reconfiguring my desktop layout to account for this.
That said, I enjoy having the hardwire connection when my 30-foot, through-three-walls, oft-dropped WiFi connection annoyed me to hell and back.

Suggestions For a Coax-To-Ethernet Solution?
I researched this and found that the Actiontec MI424WR router that Verizon provides for their FiOS service makes a nice, high-speed coax-ethernet bridge. You can purchase them used from BCD Electro. I bought a pair to utilize the coax under my house that ran from the main cable splitter to my office. I re-routed the cable under the house to the location of my wireless router and hooked everything up so that my desktop internet connection went this way: desktop <-ethernet-> MI424WR <-coax-> MI424WR <-ethernet-> WRT54GL.
There are guides on how to set them up to act as bridges and it's pretty simple. For the cost of a decent USB WiFi adapter, I have hardwired connectivity that provides me with 2x the throughput as my now-dead USB WiFi that it replaced.

Home Router For High-Speed Connection?
This may be what you're looking for. Offers 10/100 WAN ethernet interface, NAT, the whole she-bang.
You can find them used on eBay for under $40 shipped. I personally used a pair to utilize a coax line in my office for hard-wiring my desktop as my wireless was being spotty. Through put is better than 802.11g and ping times are in the 3ms range.

FBI Investigates Liberator of Court Records
His Perl script pulled almost 20 million PAGES. It doesn't say exactly how many RECORDS were pulled. I'm assuming most records are multiple pages. Basic math says the script rain for 18 days, so (18*24*60*60)/3 = 518400 possible records to be pulled in that time at an average of 39 pages per record to reach the 20 million pages.
