I agree with the Czech president.

The UN is a huge talking shop, which has a poor record of achievement in much of what it does. God help us if they ever did have a role/an increased UN role in global economics.

We don't need any help from the UN. Our government is already doing a
bang up job of screwing thing up.  :'(

United Nations Human Rights Council is a big MoB

Quote:

According to human rights groups, the council is controlled by a bloc of Islamic and African states, backed by China, Cuba and Russia, who protect each other from criticism.

Good guess and memory. They are the Manzano Mountains. The shot to the east from the old Lake is of the Sandia Mountains
Just a little geography lesson for the day.  ;D

The 17 Most Dangerous Places on the Web

Bob, that's interesting, I mean it, but this should have been posted in a security related thread instead. People who might indeed need to read all the details contained in the page you refer to won't notice it here.

oh come on, this is purely security related, and this pcw article is actually very well done. The thread here is full of topics that have nothing to do with security. Don't get me wrong, I don't care who posts what here, but this article in pcw deserves, if referred to, to be inserted in another section, especially on Avast forums ;)

Nothing to stop you posting it in that topic.

There is no specific section/forum on security, just a topic and there is no rule saying that you must use it. Whilst posting in the topic you suggest would make it easier to find all security related items.

This 'Interesting' topic has been going for some considerable time (June 2007) and has a great deal of activity, so it is always high up the chronological list of the topics on the General forum. So for those regular forum browsers they would be likely to see the new activity as you and I obviously did.

Microsoft is bailing on LiveSpaces and sending blogs to WordPress
"Over a six month period, beginning today, Windows Live Spaces users will have the option to move their blogs to WordPress.com."
