Russell Brown's Hard News

Well, they missed the 20th anniversary of TCP/IP in January, but somebody has remembered to hold a talkfest to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the original graphical browser, NCSA Mosaic.

A different corner |Apr 24, 2003 16:38
Now playing in the Muse Lounge

Perhaps in keeping with the resolve of a post 9/11 America, the second series of ' 24 ' has a robust subtext on the legitimate use of torture to extract information from prisoners, senior members of government and skinny blonde women in times of national crisis...,
