    Here's a kind of scary article dealing with the current military security issues.

    The gist for the Lazy:
    Sleuths Invade Military PCs With Ease

    SAN DIEGO, Aug. 15 -- Security consultants entered scores of confidential military and government computers without approval this summer, exposing vulnerabilities that specialists say open the networks to electronic attacks and spying.


    Given the former talk about OS X getting security testing, maybe its time for the Military to Switch.

    Ha, get a general on a stage - like in Patton, but instead of the American Flag in the background, put the Apple logo, and have him going off about security and switching to Apple - that would be a great ad.

    oh man, that's the coolest idea Duke, let me take it, I wanna make it, and I think I have the files to do it. I'll enter the contest, but I'll make it kind of a non entry, since its your idea. I want people to see it, but I shouldn't be allowed to win on someone elses idea, ya know.

    do it, don't worry about it being my idea. I've got my own one in the works, and there are plenty of other people who have used other peoples ideas - remember, members will be voting, so you still to win them over.

    Good luck!
