OpenBSD 4.5 Released
There's an unofficial .iso torrent up on The Pirate Bay, for those finding the mirrors slow. Not a lot of people using it at the moment, but we can change that.
Some of the MD5s are different; I haven't investigated why yet.
Was the 2004 Election Stolen?
First, let me mention that I vehemently agree that our voting system really needs to change. I'm not trying to argue that. But...
Everyone registered as a citizen gets a voting ticket by regular mail well before the election.
What happens if yours never comes? I know there were major problems with absentee ballots being mailed to US citizens living abroad. As in, few of them received them more than a day before the deadline to return them. Now imagine this happening widespread across the US. Under an Administration that people hvae come to distrust.
Even if everyone gets them, I can see a lot of people losing them. And if people can go get a new one, it raises the question of what happened to the old one--was it really lost (or never arrived), or does someone else have it? Anyone who thinks that fake IDs don't exist should visit a college campus. So then the tickets would be making it easier for people to 'double-vote.'
Once again, I agree that the system needs to change, and it needs to change in a big way. It just seems like voting 'tickets' will do nothing but keep legitimate voters from being able to vote.
