    Interesting. There's something I read in the campus newspaper about a research network between universites that uses 'dark fiber', laid by phone companies, but never used. It would allow researchers to have instant access to terabytes of information when they needed it for different research/computing needs. I forgot what it was called, though... Something like the National Lambda Rail...

    Then world war 3, I would prefer the Terminator future to being stuck in a matrix though.

    Lets hope Microsoft do their usual best with it, the human race may just stand a chance if we can devise a nifty work around and disable it before the first service pack hits us.:p
