"Famous" LiveJournals. Apparently, there's a whole mini-culture of people keeping LiveJournals, playing the parts of celebrities. Welcome to a strange world where Celine Dion complains that "it's actually pathetic when Mariah updates more than I do", and celebrities as varied as Tom Cruise ("if you haven't seen my new look for my new movie, let me warn you, it involves a grayish flat top and a little more bulk than I normally carry") and Fiona Apple ("ok ladies of Lilith, Sarah, Alanis and i have JUST finished creating the must_be_lilith community") list each other as friends. A little creepy, but not enough to cover up the somewhat perverse entertainment value drawn from watching someone so involved in another person.

For ICBMs. "Thus, if the Minuteman III ICBMs have to be used in some future nuclear war, their rocket motors will not pollute the atmosphere. EPA regulations do not apply in foreign countries, so no changes are being made to reduce the harmful environmental effects of the nuclear warheads." more inside

Forgent sues 31 companies over use of JPEG. Like the spectre of the GIF/Unisys monster that would not die, Forgent Networks is rising up to haunt the industry. It filed lawsuits Friday against Dell, Adobe, Apple, Agfa, IBM, Xerox, Macromedia, JVC, Panasonic, Creative Labs, and dozens of other companies for violating patents on their compression algorithms which are allegedly used in the JPEG format. The company talked licensing fees back in 2002 but the community balked or turned a deaf ear. Legit suit or a quick buck? (Also on Slashdot)
