14. July, 2002 - Bastille Day
- This OpenSSH Security Advisory came out in June, but I figured I was obscure enough that I didn't need to worry right away. Well, Friday night a couple folks were jiggling the doorknob on my server, so I spent a good chunk of yesterday applying security updates. Ugh.
- Las Vegas' top-level trauma center reopens after brief shutdown, but only because some doctors agreed to become county employees for a month and a half (so they're covered under the county's policy). Will the state step up to find a long term solution?
- At Lake Harriet, women gain from step back in time to the 1890s, as the Victorian Era restrooms are reopened after renovation. Ceremony at 4pm today. [strib]
- A bridge so near. Duluth's Aerial Lift Bridge. [strib]
- Gun Course in U.S. Is Focus at British Terrorism Trial. A Briton came to the US to learn how to shoot. Apparently he's a terrorist in the UK now. Maybe the guy was a terrorist, but they should have more evidence than the fact that he took a course on how to shoot. [endwar]
- The man who gave a ride to Zacarias Moussaoui, and his descent into indefinite federal detention. No charges against him, and he's been held in solitary for ten months, and he'll probably continue to be held until he's testified in the Moussaoui trial.
- NRO Staff on Joel Mowbray and the State Department.
NRO contributor Joel Mowbray was detained Friday afternoon at the State Department after an acrimonious exchange with top Foggy Bottom press flack Richard Boucher. and
for at least a few minutes, Mowbray had a harder time leaving the State Department than many Saudis have had entering the country. [instapundit]
- I mentioned The Pickle Jar Theory before. It was brought home to me again last month. There was a public meeting I wanted to go to. I completely forgot about it until after an hour after it had started. But I was thinking about the new server I've been setting up. And the work I had to do the following week. And my 20th high-school reunion. And whether I could make it to Critical Mass in June (I didn't). And those other rocks, pebbles, and sand distracted me from one of the things on my schedule that I should've been dealing with. On top of it all, I was doing my normal morning routine of surfing the web while I wake up. And then it was too late. [zeldman]
