CherryOs is moving to being open source. Quoth their website:
Due to Overwhelming Demand

Cherry Open Source Project

Launches 5.1.2005


Or, the revised version:
Due to Overwhelming Demand Valid Legal Threats

Cherry Open Source Project

Launches 5.1.2005


Y'see, there's some really solid evidence that CherryOs, a program that emulates a Mac on a PC is actually a rip off of the GPLed project PearPC, with a slick UI and installer, but a core of open source software they were trying to profit from. The good news is they caved, the bad news is this means that the GPL still remains unchallenged, and thereby might not have any legal street cred.

Now,

this is the important part of my post

. Remember how you'll be needing a passport to go to Canada in a few months? Check this out. Note the words no judicial review. Laws, with no judicial review violate the seperation of function design pattern known to most as "Seperation of Powers". This is Bad. Don't do that. You'lll be sorry.

    while that is true, it's equally true that, with the exception of what's in section III of the constitution, congress is the branch of government which determines the jurisdiction of the federal courts. that's basically what they're doing here - they're denying the federal courts the right to hear cases in this area. congress has taken away some appellate jurisdiction from the supreme court in the past. so, as much as it's Evil(TM), i don't know if it's unconstitutional.
  • I guess if they can do it with the TSA for purposes of "national security" they can do it at the border, too. Nasty nasty thing. The longer they're in power, the longer this administration scares me. At least when I hear voices in my head, I *know* they're not real. (OK. I don't so much hear the voices as script them. But you know what I mean.)
  • Relaying a message from Tim from Elizabeth...

    Elizabeth's house was flooded and her computer died O_o . Thus, she is not online. But she is fine and wanted you to know this.
    • Re: Relaying a message from Tim from Elizabeth...

      Good to know, I've been wondering what happened to her. Hey, speaking of people I haven't seen in ages, who's gonna be around next weekend? I was gonna come this one, but didn't alert anyone, and really need to clean. But next weekend? Anyone- anyone? Buller?

        Yeah, I think I'll prolly be around. On Sunday I have a fencing tourney, but just for part of the day.
