This is a very interesting story in the Detroit Free Press.
Apparently anyone having sex w/ penetration while committing a felony is guilty of Criminal Sexual Misconduct of the 1st degree which in the state of Michigan can be punishable by life in prison. And according to an older law on the books, adultery is technically a felony. So don’t get caught having an affair as it can now be punishable by life in jail.
I think this is what happens when you try to convict someone of a crime and the judges read more into the law then they should. And what if the Attorney General had affair, does that mean that now he should face life in prison?
Hey if this law means less people have affairs and maybe work on their marriages instead I’m all for it. But somehow I doubt that.
Interseting story I came across on one of the forums for Altiris. Someone is speculating that Novell has extra money and is looking to purchase Altiris purely for its SVS product. I disagree, I think that Novell would be better off with XenSource as it is less expensive and seems to fit a lot better with the current linux play they have going on w/ SuSE and OpenSuse.
From what I can tell Novell has its own management system XenWorks, even if it is not as good as Altiris’ offering. Just an interesting thought on today’s rumor of the day
I have been working with (K)Ubuntu docs for a long time now, since Hoary release I think and I have recently started trying to move some of my work upstream to KDE and one of things that I want is a Debian install so I can see what is different, if anything between Debian and Kubuntu and make sure that I account for any of those differences. (Wow that might just have been the longest sentence I have written on this blog) So I fired up VM Server and created a new Virtual Machine and got ready to install.
One of the final stages of the installer is to configure what other packages you would like installed, and I selected Desktop and Standard. And the installer continues without providing me the opportunity to choose which desktop environment I will be using. And here comes Gnome pacakges….
So after the installer is finished and my vm restarts, I receive several errors about not being able to start X which is no big deal I know how to do the whole dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg-core to get things resetup, which I promptly did. I’m now getting error messages about a package mouse not installed? WTF is that why weren’t all the packages installed… So I start googling to try and figure out how to install KDE and find there are several packages (kde, kde-core,kde-desktop) and you have to guess which one you want. I try kde-desktop and no luck, no such package. So I install the pacakge kde and start things up and still no X. Why can’t Debian just work like (K)Ubuntu does?
I think the best thing that Ubuntu has done is provide the different desktop meta-packages (ubuntu-desktop, kubuntu-desktop, xubuntu-desktop,edubuntu-desktop) and they work at getting the correct destkop enviroment setup and working.
BTW I also read that you can pass the command install tasksel/first=kde-desktop but that didn’t work for me either….
Found this great article on how to mount shares in Ubuntu via SSH and will have to work on doing this myself as I’m accessing shares all the time.
I love the fact that Kubuntu and KDE allows me to use fish:// and sftp:// as well for working w/ different shares as well.
Sorry had to write a quick blog entry about this. I am a huge history buff and just found this blog out. What a great blog, keep up the good work
I’ve been thinking about your comment:
“If any blogger out there has complained, I’ll see that and be warned away.”
and I find that extremly scary. Remember one of the best and worst parts of the internet is the ability to be anonomoys and write whatever you want to without signing your name. Lou Holtz, the great coach from Norte Dame, made a comment about how this has wrecked coaching football, some blogger/message board poster can write whatever he/she wants and pretty soon a coach is in hot water w/ the university/fans/media and is out of a job if enough people belive what one person posted w/o having to sign his/her name to the post.
So I can now game what companies you buy and do business with? I can write “stories” of fraud and abuse and poor customer service and steer you away from doing business w/?
Really what Coach Holtz said is true, the power of blogging and Google is scary, coaches can get fired, Senators can face time in jail or loose their jobs, political lies can be brought to light, and I can make it all up as long I establish some form of high Google rank.
