It means two devices are trying to connect to your lan with the same ip address. Is someone sniffing your wifi from outside?

Two random stories for today:

1. I talked to the (former?) vice-president of the Kosovo parliament in a supermarket.

2. A Slovenian threatened with a bomb on Rome-Fiumicino airport.

Can't take you people anywhere!

Just saw this, in connection with something we were talking about some time ago:

Congress won't do anything, of course...not doing anything is what they do, so to speak.

I think he was an Albanian, not a Serb. I'd probably recognize him on a photo. The story is really as random as it can get. I was appointed to a dentist, I was already driving there when he calls me and tells me not to come, because they're installing some new equipment and it isn't finished yet. So I decide to visit a friend working in an insurance company office in a supermarket. So we chat when two guys step in and one of them wants to insure his house in Ljubljana. Then we all kind of chat with each other and one of them says he studied in Zagreb and was a vice-president of the Kosovo parliament. The other guy was also an Albanian, but he looked like a Native American (Indian). So yeah, whatever. Then a house painter came in and I told him to paint my apartment.

I used to live in Brescia, where Beretta started making guns 500 years ago. Europeans used to slaughter their neighbours on a daily basis until not so many years ago. We really know guns oh so well.

I really don't think so.

2011 figures:
Deaths by firearms in UK per 100,000 inh: 0.23 (http://www.gunpolicy.org/firearms/region/united-kingdom)
Deaths by firearms in US per 100,000 inh: 2.75 (http://www.theguardian.com/news/data...crime-us-state)

Violent crime =/= crime by guns.

I was mugged at knifepoint once.

Anyhow, new driving law of the day:

http://www.carthrottle.com/post/if-y...ive-in-russia/

But here's a bit of analysis on the violent-crime question - complete with the recognition that definitions are different - that shouldn't offend anyone:

Took about 15 seconds to find, by the way.

The problem was not the Beretta family or the guns they make. The problem was neighbours slaughtering their neighbors on a daily basis, which is not the guns' fault but the fault of the people who misuse them to kill each other. Americans have come to know Berettas well and like them because they are well-designed quality products. The great majority of guns here in the US only see sporting action at the shooting range.

That's true, it's not guns' fault, but people's. Guns helped immensely, though. Since people can't be banned, I'd ban guns, with a great sense of relief.

The arguments for free guns would thus be?

It is not the guns fault, but people's fault.
The violent crime rate is anyway high.

Reading those argument, I still have the feeling that I would rather be witnessing or be a victim of a violent crime where no guns would be used. If banning guns effectively restricts access to them, then we can conclude that we can prevent the severity of the violence, even if we can't prevent the violence itself. Yes, people are violent regardless of whether there are guns, but the violence is less deadly when no guns are involved.

US has 4,7 times higher homicide rate compared to the UK. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of..._homicide_rate

I never argued for free guns. (Or freely-available guns, the right to carry them anywhere, and so on, which is what I assume you meant.)

Anyhow, site of the day:

I just found it amusing (a friend just sent it to me), I wasn't suggesting anything.

But glitter's better than guns for the person at the receiving end....
