It works on my end now. I tried it with Opera 10 and IE7. It didn't work (2 different sessions) with Opera, but does now. And you will note the URL in my image.

Another reason to be careful with installing distributed computing software on PCs that you do not own.

http://www.rr.com/news/topic/article...worker_his_job

Quote:
MESA, Ariz.— A former Arizona school district employee is accused of using school computers in an experiment to find space aliens, costing the worker his job and the district more than $1 million.

Schools officials say Brad Niesluchowski, who was Higley Unified School District's information technology director, downloaded free software on district computers in 2000.

The program, known as SETI(at)home, uses Internet-connected computers worldwide to analyze radio telescope data in an experiment to find extraterrestrial intelligence.

But Superintendent Denise Birdwell told the East Valley Tribune that the program also bogged down the district's system and interfered with technology use in classrooms.

Birdwell said it will take more than $1 million to fix the problem, including removal of the SETI software. She says police are conducting a broader investigation.

Niesluchowski resigned from the district Oct. 22.

His lawyer did not return calls for comment.
Unfortunately, the title implies that SETI research is directly related to Roswell.

WTF? Historic EPA finding: Greenhouse gases harm humans

Did they ever go to school? CO2 is harmful to humans? Duh?!
Of course it is! I fail to see how that is historic! They needed an agency for that?

Well on a scale of arsenic to water, I'd say CO2 is closer to water. Its like the third or fourth largest component of air and has been for millions of years.

Of course you can poison yourself by drinking too much water too.

Just heard Maxine Mawhinney on News24 Spoonerise "Kent Hunt"
I know I wasn't mistaken, because she immediately corrected herself.

As Americans, I think we can safely say that most US politics (i.e. in the Bush era and so far in the Obama era) has been .......
