"Great Cave-in of China" ???

Call it the "Great Cave-in of China" as the Beijing government today delayed a requirement for controversial Green Dam censorship software to be installed on all machines sold in that country.

Interesting read Mr Grim. As I work and reside in China, it comes as a relieve to me. They already block so many websites, it's not even funny. The greatest frustration for me here is that they seem to just block random educational websites, and of course some of my favorite torrent sites.
Blocking porn, etc is a good thing in my opinion, but monitoring everything you do on your PC. Ridiculous!
Fortunately it is now your choice whether you want this software or not, so we will see how that goes!

Anybody else have "old" computer gear that still works great?
Hi everyone. Like most people, I've been gradually upgrading my systems in order to keep up with the technology. But I have to admit, there's one part of my setup that I haven't changed in fourteen years -- my Yamaha YST-M15 speakers and subwoofer. I remember when I first bought them -- I...
