Juan slams East Coast
Monday, September 29, 2003 -- From ground level, Hurrican Juan's fury comes into sharp focus. It was a direct hit on Halifax and tonight the city is still a mess in places. Juan was at least as powerful as Hurricane Isabel, which slammed the U.S. last week -- and it shows. Huge trees have been uprooted all over the city, and in many areas heavy flooding is still a problem.

Iran, under pressure to dispel fears it is developing nuclear arms, Monday paraded six of its newly deployed medium-range missiles, which military analysts say could reach Israel or U.S. bases in the Gulf. It was the largest number of Shahab-3 ballistic missiles put on public display since Iran announced in July it had finished testing the weapon and deployed it to the Revolutionary Guards.

How to add buttons to your MSN6!

First of all you need to have MSN6 because it would not work with any other versions of MSN. The files that you need is in

C:\Documents and Settings\Yourusername\Application Data\Microsoft\MSN Messenger

You see where it says your username you can change that to your account name in XP or in your other windows or you can change that to All Users to apply to everyone in your computer.
When you get to the MSN Messenger directory you should see a file called ConfigCache.xml that is where you should edit by right clicking and then pressing on edit to open the XML file with Notepad.

The buttons should be around <msntabdata> </msntabdata> and the codes should go between <tab> </tab> so when you find the XML add the following codes after this <msntabdata> .

These are the following codes that you can add to it, you can make your own to, if you know how to edit and creat XML/RSS files.
Copy and paste these.
Adding Blog this to MSN 6:

Adding Blogdex to MSN 6:

Adding Google Search to MSN 6: To open the links press on Shift while you click to open in a new window.

Here is the code:

I will add more of these XML feeds for msn 6 later, here is a screenshot of the result.

How to get macromedia Flashpaper?

Macromedia flashpapaer is with Contribute 2 only when Contribute2 is installed macromedia flash paper would get installed with it too, the good thing about macromedia flash paper is that you can transform those lousy power presentations let's say notes into a .swf file that works with Flash players only, you can send and upload and do anything with them. The basic Idea is to share them with each other over the net or in a Compact disc or in school. Let's say in your school they don't have Adope but you can see flash related material over the net, so you transform your PDF file into .swf with this handy tool. But the problem is it only works with contribute 2 only! So I decided to give a try with that macromedia flash MX 2004 product crack that I showed everyone last few days ago.
Basically download and install contribute 2 with macromedia flash paper, Flash paper comes with contribute 2 itself. All you have to do after the installation is to paste the crack files in the directory of the flash paper in your C drive and then uninstall contribute 2, now try to print something now you would see FlashPaper printer so when ever you try to print something you can do it with .swf files two plus real paper. After you crack this it doesn't ask you for the serial keys or anything like that.

Notice: I tried this crack with contribute 2 and it does not work, it only works with Macromedia FlashPaper.

Iran 'to cut nuclear co-operation'

BBC: Iran is to reduce its co-operation with the UN nuclear watchdog following a demand that it proves its nuclear aims are peaceful, according to an Iranian diplomat. Ali Akbar Salehi, Iran's representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), on Monday said Iran had been showing "good will and transparency", by exceeding its obligations and allowing inspections at sites which didn't fall under the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Putting a lid on broadband use

Cnet: Earlier this month, a Philadelphia Comcast broadband subscriber got a letter from his service provider, telling him he'd been using the Internet too much. Keith, who asked to keep his full name private, said he'd subscribed to the service for four years and never had a complaint before. Now he was being labeled a network "abuser." Worse, he said, Comcast refused to tell him how much downloading was allowed under his contract. A customer service representative had told him there was no specific cap, he said, adding that he might avoid being suspended if he cut his bandwidth usage in half. But even then, the lack of a hard number gave Keith no guarantee.

Ancient river found beneath Toronto
TORONTO (Reuters) - A river runs through it -- wide, deep, cold and ancient -- and few people in Toronto suspect it's even there. There's an ice-age river flowing deep under Canada's largest city. There has been for at least a million years but it wasn't until last month that anyone saw any real evidence of it. The discovery of the glacial river happened when workers were trying to cap two artesian wells, part of a stormwater runoff project in High Park, one of the city's largest parks, near the shore of Lake Ontario...

Photographs of the footballer David Beckham have been blacked out on billboards in the Iranian capital, Tehran, in what appears to be a backlash against Western cultural influence.Five billboards in the city carrying a head and shoulders shot of the Real Madrid and England star advertising engine oil have been draped in black cloth. Correspondents say David Beckham is the first Western celebrity to be used in an advertising campaign in Iran since the 1979 Islamic revolution.

Galileo ends in blaze of glory

BBC: The Galileo space craft has been destroyed in the atmosphere of Jupiter. The probe was sent on a collision path with the gas-giant planet and should have impacted at 1857 GMT.The US space agency (Nasa) is now waiting for the signal from the probe to be lost. Because it takes about 52 minutes for a radio signal to reach Earth at the speed of light, it will be a while yet before Galileo scientists can confirm the space craft is actually dead.

For the past six months, I have been participating in what I believe to be the great modern lie: Operation Iraqi Freedom.
After the horrific events of September 11 2001, and throughout the battle in Afghanistan, the groundwork was being laid for the invasion of Iraq. "Shock and awe" were the words used to describe the display of power that the world was going to view upon the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom. It was to be an up-close, dramatic display of military strength and advanced technology from within the arsenals of the American and British military.

Popular Science | The Worst Jobs in Science

Ah, science! Ennobling. Fascinating. Deeply challenging. Also, dangerous, gross and mind-bogglingly boring. We at Popular Science are sometimes brought up short by the realization that there are aspects of science—entire jobs, even—that, when you strip away the imposing titles and advanced degrees, sound at best distasteful and at worst unbearable. Having chosen last month our second annual Brilliant 10—a group of dynamic researchers making remarkable discoveries—we turned to this pressing question: For the rest out there, just how bad can a science job get?
The answer: Really, really bad.
We solicited nominations from more than a thousand working scientists.....

Amanpour: CNN practiced self-censorship

USAToday: CNN's top war correspondent, Christiane Amanpour, says that the press muzzled itself during the Iraq war. And, she says CNN "was intimidated" by the Bush administration and Fox News, which "put a climate of fear and self-censorship."
As criticism of the war and its aftermath intensifies, Amanpour joins a chorus of journalists and pundits who charge that the media largely toed the Bush administrationline in covering the war and, by doing so, failed to aggressively question the motives behind the invasion.

Little greens poll!

When I see polls about Iran I get all scared out because we're talking about my kind not any kind but my kind. Check poll result for this question. Do you think Iran will get nuclear weapons? 1863 users have said No. We will stop them with a preemptive attack. What is this primitive attack! Is it bombing or is it by negotiating? I know Iran is not negotiatable but at least we speak the language of love. Do not judge what you here around you about other people, in this case all of Iran is not terrorists or American hating people they are all opposite of that, they love western culture as well as their rich Persian culture, if U.S. wants to go to war with Iran, thousands of Iranian youths would loose their life also children , if you're thirteen or older you have to stay in Iran and attend war if u did or didn't want to. There will be also United states casualties! no one wants that too. As a human begin trying to have a voice in this piece f land that we all live on. So think again before accepting something before even judging. It's like looking at something if it's beautiful or tasty from out side and you would get it, it is the same case over here. I know Iran is going for nuclear Energy or weapons but it doesn't mean to attack someone else's country, who has given anyone's right to attack Iran! Negotiate or attack the government not it's people, we Iranian people are like all of the other human begins in this world, we like freedom also everything that goes with democracy, we don't like our government to be mixed or bonded with our government, to make these tasks succeed we need to have power but what is that power that we need? whatever the people have done the government stopped us with their brutal acts such as murdering and killing and torturing other who seek that freedom.

Iranian Harrypotter fans!

This is a letter that has been sent to J.K.Rowling the author of Harry Potter. Here is the letter from Iranians can now download to chapter 11 of this book online in PDF format in Persian.
To read the letter in Persian click here,The letter is taken from site itself.

Dearest J.K.Rowling,

I am writing on behalf of our small group of Harry Potters' fans. We are a bunch of Iranian teenagers and adults who have recently joined together via a newly made web site for discussing novels and movies. In this website we have a massage board to discuss different aspects of the subject, and not surprisingly, your huge creation – Harry Potter – has its own division.

As you might have guessed, Harry has thousands of fans in Iran just like other parts of the world, but we don’t have the possibility of direct contact with you or your representatives to discuss the matters with, and not all of us are good in reading and writing in English. So I got the responsibility of writing to you about few questions which have popped up during our web discussions. We know how busy you are and we don’t want answering our questions postpones the publishing of the sixth book even by one minute, but as well, we wish to get some response from you with all of our hearts.

1- Book 2, Chapter 9:
"It's not funny," said Ron, fiercely. "If you must know, when I was three, Fred turned my - my teddy bear into a great big filthy spider because I broke his toy broomstick .... You wouldn't like them either if you'd been holding your bear and suddenly it had too many legs and. . . "
Fred is 5 at the time. Then what happens to the Restriction of Underage Sorcery?

2- Book 2, Chapter 9:
"You're just worried I'm going to mess up your chances of being Head Boy -"
"Five points from Gryffindor!" Percy said tersely, fingering his prefect badge. "And I hope it teaches you a lesson! No more detective work or I'll write to Mum!"
In book five it has been pointed out explicitly that perfects can just give detentions, how could Percy decrease the points here?

3- In book 3, why couldn’t the ministry of magic send an owl to Sirius Black and then send someone to flow it on a broomstick to find Blacks’ place? It seems that owls can always find their way to any one. Isn’t it?

4- What is the gain in being an “Animagus”, and what is the point in all the track keeping and laws for it, when any wizard can transfigure to an animal like what Krum had done in forth book when he became a shark?

5- Why neither Lupin nor Snape could saw the two coexisting Harry and Hermione on the Marauder’s Map, Though when each of them looked at the map that night both Now and Future Harry and Hermione were some where in there?

6- Why they didn’t simply use the Veritaserum to get to the truth about the death eaters who fallowed Voldemort by heart and those who were under spell?

7- Why they couldn’t just verify the real death eaters from the dark mark tattoo on their arms?
8- In book 5, did the character (I’ll put his name in the letter) die because of the spell or because of falling behind the veil in the death chamber?

9- Why dose Harry never wonder about his dads’ family or the place of his parents graves?

10- In Harry Potter movies they pronounce “t” in Voldemorts’ name; in Scholastic audio dictionary they don’t do so. Which one is correct?

11- And the last but not least question: Can you give us any estimation of the publishing time of the sixth book?

Again, we are so thankful to you for introducing such a wonderful world and such a lovely hero to us.

By Love,
A group of Harry Potter fans.

'Homeless hacker' may surrender to FBI

I was watching screensavers at Techtv and Lamo was on their Phone, his voice was cracking! I guess a lot of emotions was going on fore him. A documentary crew is with him filming all of his motions. There is a documentary coming out on Hackers and their lifestyle and their purpose. Adrian is one of the hackers that are in this documentary. Adrian lamo hacks the sites and computer systems and then tells the companies of the flaws in their system, so they can fix it. Until now only one company had to complain on this good hackers act. He said when I was watching that it might be New York Times who had a complaint on him. He might become an idol as he might be for some others, an icon in the internet cyber world.

Cnet:Adrian Lamo, the so-called homeless hacker who claims responsibility for a series of high-profile electronic intrusions over the last two years, is negotiating with the FBI to surrender over criminal charges. Lamo, 22, said his attorney is talking with the U.S. Attorney's office in New York City over unspecified allegations of criminal misconduct. On Thursday, FBI agents showed up at his parents' home in Sacramento, Calif., Lamo said in a telephone interview Friday evening, during which he would not disclose his location...

techtv: Meet a songwriter who really hates file sharing. "Well, now we have the technology that allows you to, in essence, invade my bank account," Cannon says. It's easy to see he's no fan of peer-to-peer networks such as KaZaA. Cannon has strong words for file swappers. "If you take something that doesn't belong to you without paying for it, or without permission -- the way I was raised, that's stealing," Cannon says. But he doesn't put all the blame on the downloaders.

Blame Bill Gates
"The problem is, Billy Gates and Stevie Case want a lot of people to use the service they provide. And a lot of people are using their service because it provides them with a portal whereby they can go in and steal stuff. It's not in Billy's or Stevie's interest to stop that. And at the end of the day I think it's the ISP's responsibility."

I never knew that songwrites got hurt by this, wow he has learnt some knew words from the computer world!

It's raining crazy over here! it's a lot of rain! I hope it's good in other countries that they didn't have rain for a long time.
First day!

Today was my first day of High school it wasn't bad at all, I actually enjoyed it maybe it was the first day of my school. I had to go to school early this morning because I had to find about my non exciting locker that I couldn't find! They told me that I had to come that early again! That I didn't like, also when the school was finished it was crowded! everyone was going crazy, I guess because the school was finished (This sentence doesn't make since at all, so just skip it). Until then blogging more!
