Following an earlier post here on The Daily Irrelevant, a new take on the ridiculous idea of updating Bugs and the rest of the Looney Tunes crew has appeared.

De Deense minister van Economische Zaken Bendtsen is woedend over het gebrek aan steun van zijn Nederlandse collega Brinkhorst tijdens een Europees debat maandag over patenten op software.
Bendtsen vindt dat Nederland zijn eigen stoep moet vegen en ook zelf protest had kunnen aantekenen tegen het akkoord over de softwarepatenten. Dat meldde woensdag het Deense persbureau Ritzau.
De conservatieve politicus Bendtsen is verder uiterst verontwaardigd over de opmerking van Brinkhorst dat de Deense bewindsman maandag “voor het zingen de kerk is uitgegaan”, omdat hij zijn protest niet volhield. Denemarken had verwacht dat Portugal en Nederland meer steun zouden geven bij het protest tegen een regeling om patenten op software te vereenvoudigen.
De Tweede Kamer, die Brinkhorst woensdagavond opnieuw aan de tand zal voelen over de kwestie, vindt dat de D66-minister veel te snel door de bocht is gegaan en meer verzet had moeten aantekenen tegen de softwarerichtlijn. In de ogen van de linkse Kamerfracties en de LPF benadeelt deze kleine ondernemers.

Heres what happened: This chick took her mom and kids out for a ride at 3AM and saw construction and dirt and so forth around the campus. She thought to herself “hey, this is an H2, i saw it in a commercial and it could do anything. Its an all terrain vehicle, right?”
She then procedes to dive around campus for a while and then broke through the cable barrier (took 2 tries) that prevents idiots from running into the schools brand new samaritan statue. she then hit a 1′ dirt curb at about 40mph, and then right into the statues cement base. Needless to say, the curb and cement were victorious.
When asked why she did it, she repiled “I wanted to jump the statue, i saw it on tv”
She wasnt drunk or under any kind of influence and yes, the kids were inside when it happened.

The multitude of law suits brought by SCO against companies selling and using Linux has been beneficial to the open source operating system, according to one of the most influential organisations in the Linux world.
Speaking at Queen Mary, University of London, on Monday night, Open Source Developer Labs chief executive Stuart Cohen said the lawsuits were “the best thing that ever happened to Linux”.
Cohen, who heads the organisation that employs Linus Torvalds and lead kernel maintainer Andrew Morton, said that although the litigation is “nearly dead now”, its legacy is the due diligence that was done around the world on the Linux code base.
“There was a lot of due diligence around the world with people looking at the code and looking at software stacks, and all this work validated that there was nothing there, no risk, no issue,” said Cohen. “The SCO court case ended up on every Web site, in every newspaper and every magazine. Everybody had to do due diligence — you could not be a CTO or CIO and not do due diligence in 2003/2004 when SCO was suing end users,” he added.
“And look at what happened with the market share; people did not say let’s wait until this thing is over. If anything it accelerated the use
Aparently there’s no such thing as bad publicity. Let’s give Paris Hilton a copy of FreeBSD and see what happens…
