Starting this Saturday morning, June 13, at 12:01am EDT, Facbook users will be asked to choose a username for their profiles. This mad rush to grab a username should cause plenty of headaches if and when the masses decide to swamp the Facebook servers. But Facebook may be up to the challenge and have stated the following:

When the landrush starts, users will be able to choose just one username for their profile and for each of the pages that they administer (they will not be available for groups or events). Usernames must be at least five characters long and can only contain letters, numbers, or periods. They will only be available in Roman characters at launch.

However, users should be careful to choose the right one: once you have made a choice, you won’t be allowed to change it or transfer it to someone else later on. Facebook isn’t allowing transfers in order to undercut the rampant squatter market that would otherwise develop - although there will still definitely be cases of abuse. Facebook says that generic words like “flowers” or “pizza” will not be available as usernames, though we’re not sure how exactly those rules will work.

SELF INCRIMINATION THE EASY WAY: William J. Reese, 58, is a civilian who works in the jail at the Benton County, Iowa, Sheriff's Office. While on duty, he was driving a marked sheriff's unit when he apparently decided to have some fun: he allegedly tried to pull a car over, even though he was not a police officer and had no authority to do so. The car he happened to target was driven by an off-duty Benton County sheriff's deputy, who recognized Reese and knew he was not a lawman. The deputy didn't pull over, and Reese allegedly pursued him with lights and siren -- as the real cop was on his cell phone calling for backup. When the deputy finally pulled over, Reese jumped out and berated him, but the deputy responded by arresting Reese for impersonating a police officer. The best part is, there's plenty of evidence available for Reese's criminal trial: the car he was driving was equipped with a video camera, and the entire incident was recorded on tape. (Cedar Rapids Gazette) ...Meanwhile, remember that he knows about all the security weaknesses at the jail.

WHAT SCHOOL BULLIES GROW UP TO BE: Residents called police in Port St. Lucie, Fla., to complain about a troublesome neighbor walking around the street in his underwear. When an officer arrived, he noticed a car with a flat tire and a smashed windshield. An ax handle that appeared to have been used to smash the windshield was left behind; written on it were the words "Walking Small -- Your Face Here." When the officer found the underwear man, Nicholas T. Doud, 42, "He stated that he likes to walk around in his underwear and that he does this often," the officer wrote in his resulting report. Doud denied knowing anything about the damaged car, but admitted his fingerprints would "probably" be found on the ax handle. After being placed under arrest, Doud told the officer his neighbors were "being a bunch of crybabies." (Port St. Lucie News) ...Then maybe it's time to give Doud something to cry about.

lol.. I need to have different browsers open to keep an eye on some accounts. If I opened them all in the same browser I'd have to log in and out of each of them over and over... sometimes its annoying having so many browsers open but it works.

I hope they make a Mac version of it so I can give it a whirl. I do have windows on my iMac.. but blah.. I rarely pop over there.. I find windoze so annoying and confusing. I just put it on the 'puter just on the off chance that there is something i can't do or open with my Mac.   I always have like 7 different browsers open so adding another would be fun..

I really like Safari, Omniweb and Firefox.  Shiira, Sea Monkey and Flock are OK.. and Opera sucks..

You sure like to try out different browsers.

Dig deeper wizer if you're interested. 

This is less about criminals and more about the average person. 

One other point, the larger the crime (see Hitler quotes) the less likely it is the criminal will be apprehended and charged in the the first place.  Think of unjust and senseless wars, companies raiding employees' retirement accounts (outright stealing on a grand scale), and lying on a scale that is so outrageous it is believed.

Puts it into perspective for me.  Don't be stupid and kill one person with your own hands, kills thousands by barking an order (also refer to Head Mafia bosses and the contortions it takes to prosecute them).  Don't break into someone's home and take their television, lure the person into a scheme where they willingly hand you thousands or even millions.  You're much more likely to get away with it and never come to the attention of the authorities. 

Ehhhhhhhh... I think I'm ranting now.

When you say you have space all around...is it space outside the browser window, or space within the browser window itself?

Can you take a screenshot?

I use Paintshop Pro which has a capture function...

More fallout from 11th September.  That single act, brilliant by whomever did it, changed America permanently -- and not for the better in my opinion.  Now it's safety first.  Hitler who understood better than anyone the profound impact of a surgically targeted terrorist operation says it best. 

And this.


Well..it seems to me that there are just so many loopholes that the Constitution provides to the criminal element that they can take advantage of and get away with so many things.

Now they have one less loophole. I don't mind giving up that bit of privacy.

But thats just me.
