Johns Hopkins Student Gets Midevil on Burgler

Moral of the story: Don’t break into that guys house.

Editor’s Note: Now I just know that the burgler’s family will be bringing some kinda BS lawsuit into this. I think the students should bring a lawsuit against the state for letting this jackass out only to find him burglarizing houses 4 days later. I’m  sure Bruce Willis is secretly smiling and laughing his ass off.  “Jed’s Dead Baby”

Motherboards.Org Reviews – MSI i5 P55-GD65 Motherboard

The MSI P55-GD65 has a few distinctions over the P55-CD53 motherboard, which I reviewed on launch day. First is the ability to do Voltage Checkpoints, which the other board cannot do. Second is the higher Overclock ability (slightly) of the board. MSI has three models of P55 chipset on the market including this one and the P55-CD53 and P55-GD80 with slightly modified feature set for each. MSI’s board gets the Editor’s Choice due to the features and performance that you want at a reasonable price. Good Job MSI.

South Africa pigeon is ‘faster than broadband’

While I don’t forsee many IT Admins dumping their internal networks in liu of a flock of pigeons it would, nevertheless, make troubleshooting much simplier.

Your data arrived slow = shoot the pigeon.
Your data didn’t arrive = shoot the pigeon later.
Your data arrived with pigeon poop = here’s a hand towel.
What is that smell? = Data corruption.

Broadband promised to unite the world with super-fast data delivery – but in South Africa it seems the web is still no faster than a humble pigeon.
