Böker makes wonderful knives. I contemplated about the alltime famous Buck Folding Hunter, but it does not even come close to this excellent craftsmanship from a traditional company in Solingen, Germany.

So we decided to help them out by making a few suggestions on how Microsoft should spend its cash hoard."

Quoting the current NOTAMs (Notice

by Volker Weber

Quoting the current NOTAMs (Notice to Airmen), regarding flights in the Persian Gulf area:



Aircraft transiting the areas mentioned above may minimize the exposure to the advisory procedure by maintaining an altitude above FL 250; avoiding off-airway routing; executing all climbs and descents within national
airspace; and by avoiding abrupt and unusual changes of heading and/or altitude which may be construed as inconsistent with normal civil aircraft flight patterns.



Illumination of a U.S. military unit with a weapons-type fire control radar will be viewed with suspicion and could result in an immediate military defensive action.

 
This information is being provided solely to preclude the potential for any misinterpretation or misunderstanding which could result in an unfortunate accident; it does not affect the freedom of navigation of any individual or state. FAA/AIA-100

ITinfo: Comparing Microsoft IIS and Apache HTTP Server: "Keeping up with the security holes is just too costly. The manpower costs of dealing with the flood of security problems that have plagued Microsoft's webserver can cripple an IS department or an entire small business. Microsoft has issued 21 security bulletins for IIS 5.0 alone, a number that is increasing at the rate of about one every three weeks."
