I run an Orinocco in an ELSA pcmcia-isa card ( about 35 quid ) on my gateway
at home. Just make sure you use the latest pcmcia stuff and run the cards in
'Ad-Hoc' mode. Theres no need for bridging either, Linux seems to happily

What I have against CoS is its deceitfulness, its lack of compassion for its

Forced is a bit strong. They used the (Broken) DMCA law and told Slashdot
what to do. Slashdot realized that this wasn't every-ones favourite bad guy
Microsoft and realized that they had not a leg to stand on. The reason i
have such a jaded view of this is that the situation was very similar to
the Microsoft Kerberus one and Slashdot held their ground over that one.

Also it was amusing to see the comments praising the decision to back down

 exactly dave, it makes me feel that the archive have some use!


I have one Scientology story -

A couple of years ago I was in East Grinstead hospital (thing 'Guinea Pig
Club') while they were trying to fix the little finger on my right hand (
they failed but thats another story ).  There was this nice Maori guy in
the bed next to me out of his head on pain-killers as he had third degree
burns on his arms.  Anyhow it transpired that he was part of a Maori
dancing troupe that was doing some cultural tour at the behest of the
Church of Scientology whose european headquarters happen to be in East
Grinstead.  The second day I was in the hospital I was beginning to get a
little pissed off as you do and  this party of bloody Scientology Auditors
came along and started doing their thing with this geezer with only the
merest of hospital screens around - I dont think that they get out the old
baked bean can and avometer device ( Oooh sorry E-Meter ) but you can
never be too sure -  and this started going on for seeming hours and I was
that bored that I had started reading Bjarne Stroustrup' book again.

I'm not going to bore you with the details of wahat the prats were going o
about but needless to say it could be deduced from Hubbards earlier
writings and the basic milieu of cod spychology of the early sixties ...

I complained to the staff and they said it pissed them off too but they
got a lot of them in being the HQ and everything and they couldnt do much
about it

 Don't the merkans do something like this (the camping, not the FM)? They
