OJ with Toast

Would you lie to get on the jury?  In LV and no LA will this trail be an excuse to finally send this 60 old guy away for what will most to the remaining factor of his life?

And would that be wrong?  If the jury is packed with people who lied their way on to get this one guy.  The founding fathers of the United States provided for juries as a check on institutional power of the courts, and one part it they must have seen is the publics demand for justice or even revenge in the face of a system that would benefit the rich and powerful.

Though I think jury members should answer all questions as towards prejudice of the case and suspect honestly before had if they can find a set of people who don't already know for sure that this guy got away with murder they will have another jury dumb enough to let him go again.  The demand for juries that are free of the influence of prejudices does not mandate a jury of idiots.

Impressed by Ubuntu

Got a spare machine that can't handle Vista or even XP.  Love the Mac OS X but hate the price.  Want to be part of something different or just want to have geek fun.

I think Ubuntu Linux is just the think to try.  You can download a iso that fits on a CD that will allow you to test drive ubuntu on a Windows machine, and if you like it install it.  Ubuntu comes with all the free software that you will need and on the old Toshiba laptop that I could not get working with devices on Windows XP was no problem with ubuntu.

For just a few hours of effort you can burn a cd and give it a test run.  I have to say I love it.  I was able to download the tools I use mostly for web interactions: Second Life, Flock, Gimp and it comes with Firefox and Open Office. 

Ubuntu 7.04 - The power of open source. On your laptop, desktop and server. Smart. Secure. Easy. [download]

The device I want to go to SL on

I want to go to SL on my XBox. This is finally the control for it, released by Microsoft.

SL on a giant plasma screen through the XBox with this device, or a Wii with a remote like this would be the best Internet experience now possible.
