The version for Linux says "Soon"
might be worth keeping an eye on

BTW, if you search google for ARRL ipod there should be a few matches 
about AR Newsline and Amaetur Radio Today being available.

Re: Firefox won't install extensions except as root

I've had the same problem with trying to add search engines. Can only
do it as root. I always thought this was a rather ridiculous behavior
of Firefox, and is one of my few complaints.

Wow, that URL is pretty bizarre, I didn't even notice it until I copied 
it from Google and pasted it into that e-mail... 

If you do a search on "constitution.org" with the quotes it returns 
differently, as you would have expected it to the first time.  Maybe 
they changed their regular expression handling?

  Google's been linking those words in that location to their dictionary
definitions for quite some time now...

Re: Has Google been hacked?


I would guess that someone probably erred. In Google's efforts to lick
the boots of the Chinese autocrats, they may very well have blocked your
site (and probably others) everywhere.

The future of public wireless? RFID at WCIT2006

http://community.livejournal.com/austingeeks/57196.html

One of Austin's Open Source warriors, Whurley has been posting his flicker photos from deep behind enemy lines at WCIT 2006. Of particular interest is the RFID required for internet access.

Whurley reports: "Security at the WCIT 2006 in Austin, Texas is incredibly tight. However, it's not just to get into the conference. To gain access at the conference (if you don't use the monitored wireless), you have to enter your RFID enabled badge to open/unlock one of the many workstations.. Whurley goes on to say: "If you're not wearing a suit, you also get to visit with the Austin Police department or one of the many Department of Public Safety officers that are out in force.

Check out the link for action shots.
