    I am between jobs, and considering the odd mix of my skills, I was thinkling of making a CD mini-disk with examples of HTML, Excel, Word, etc., to help me stand out from the other drones. 1) I would like to figure out how to make a self-booting ROM that would run a HTML file on bootup. Any ideas? 2) I think it may be done through Flash. Is there any way to learn simple Flash programming without spending $99 on a professional editor? Thanks in advance to the wise folks in here!

    A high school chemistry teacher was arrested after students claimed he taught his class how to make a bomb, authorities said. David Pieski, 42, used an overhead projector in class to give instructions in making explosives to students at Freedom High School, including advising them to use an electric detonator to stay clear from the blast, an Orange County sheriff's arrest report said. In Pieski's classroom in Orlando, authorities found a book labeled "Demo," which includes the chemical breakdown for a powerful explosive, the arrest report said. One student said he set off an explosive device at a golf course...

    SAINT PETERSBURG, Sept 6 (AFP) - Around 15,000 people observed a minute of silence here Monday in a demonstration to remember the hundreds of victims of Russia's school hostage crisis and to demand an end to terrorism.

    Clients upset over donations made for them 2003-08-10 By Nolan Clay The Oklahoman A group of workers’ compensation attorneys is increasingly relying on its clients to finance a political war chest created to influence elections, and some injured workers are angry about it. At least 160 injured workers are among this year’s listed donors — those giving more than $50. Other workers may be among the 350 or so unidentified donors who gave smaller amounts. Attorneys ask the workers to make donations from their awards. Some workers told The Oklahoman they had no problem donating, but others said they hadn’t...

    Truly remarkable results gobsmack us A SHARP EYED contributor to Ace's Hardware Forum has noticed that Intel is making some truly remarkable claims for the 3.06GHz Pentium 4. A demo on its site – it requires Flash to view – compares a spreadsheet calculation. That takes five minutes 39.9 seconds on a 3.06GHz Pentium 4 without hyperthreading while with hyperthreading, Intel claims it takes 35.58 seconds. [ Actually, if you see the demo, it is supposed to take the non-hyperthreaded P4 an even longer 6 minutes 15 seconds. (5:40 + :35) ] This is a remarkable feat and leads us...
