Subject: why o why did NASA do this.

> Ok Mr. Limpy..lol

Just for the record, I fixed that problem I was having with my Linux
install! Of course, I've gone and broken it again, but that's besides
the point. Now you should be referring to me as Mr. No Limbs (it's
completely dead). lol

I thought it was too. =D I wouldn't try it either, but then again, I'm
not someone who would be interested in hacking into NASA. It's the
ones who WOULD be interested that I worry about.

I realize that such information is generally available through public
records and such. However, that's no reason to post it all for easy
access and saving. ;)
