A TV set in Oregon broadcasted a strong enough signal to send searchers to a man's apartment.
"They'd never seen signal come that strong from a home appliance," said van Rossmann. "They were quite surprised. I think we all were."
Authorities had expected to find a boat or small plane with a malfunctioning transponder, the usual culprit in such incidents, emitting the 121.5 MHz frequency of the distress signal used internationally.

I just got back from Sonora, California after a fun weekend of caving and partying at the NSS Western Regional. It is an annual meeting of all the grottos on the west coast... mostly from California. I had a great time and met some really cool people. I took a bunch of pictures from our trip to Crystal Palace cave. The gallery can be found here in its entirety.

The govinator has signed into law several tech related bills that are great moves in the fight against spam and spyware. First of all is the law that bans the installation of spyware on computers and secondly the law that makes the senders of spam liable for $1000 per email sent that doesn't include the email address and contact info of the sender.
Who wants to join with me and become spam bounty hunters?

North Korea escalates nuclear stand-off: "North Korea claims it has "weaponised" all of its spent plutonium rods because the US's hostile policies towards Pyongyang leave it no choice but to develop a "nuclear deterrent.""

On of my friends who is a print broker got a 10 identical copies of a mor.t.gag.e spam so he decided to fill out the form and send it out. So far he had received about 8 calls. Every time he gets a call he turns it around and tries to sell printing to the agent. He now has a couple of new clients.
