... at the trial. Computer security law is new field, and the legal
establishment has yet to reach broad agreement on may key issues.
Advances in computer security law have been impeded by the reluctance on
the part of lawyers and judges to grapple with the technical side of computer
security issues. This problem could be mitigated by involving technical
computer security professional in the development of computer security law and
public policy. This paper is meant to help bridge to gap between technical and

Advancement Of Technology And Science And Its Influence On Science Fiction Novels
... old romances and fanciful legends of our
boyhood" (James 8) observes James. Technology has made what was once thought
impossible, plausible and weather or not technology is directly incorporated
into a science fi ction story as an obvious vehicle, the author knows that it is
always present in the mind of the reader. It is this plausablilty of what
conventionally should not be acceptable that has led to science fiction's
increasing popularity over the years. As James explains, "much sf is concerned
with the future and with the possibilities presented by scientific and
technological change" (James 3). Truly, humans exploring and even colonizing
other worlds, the ...
Censorship And The Internet
... communicating on the Internet make up a large and vast system. For inspectors to monitor every e-mail, every article in every Newsgroup, every Webpage, every IRC channel, every Gopher site and every FTP site would be near impossible. Besides taking an ext raordinary amount of money and time, attempts to censor the Internet violate freedom of speech rights that are included in democratic constitutions and international laws.11 It would be a breach of the First Amendment. The Constitution of the United Stat es of America declares that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the free ...
Windows 95 Beats Mac
... my PC? With Windows 95, these problems
were alleviated with plug and play technology. With plug and play compatible
boards, the computer detects and configures the new board automatically. The
operating system may recognize some hardware components on older PCs. Mac userw
will claim that they always had the convenicnce of a plug and play system, ubt
the difference shows in teh flexibility of the two systems.
Another set of arguments Mac users use in favor of their sysstems over PCs is in
multimedia and networking capabilities. Mac users gloat that the Mac has
networking technology built in the system. Even if a user did not use it, the

Even From It's Humble Beginnings, The Internet Has Always Been A Battlefield Between Phreaks And Administrators
... a wondrous place. Practically anything you could ever want
is available on the Net. It's like a big city, it has the highly
prestigious areas, and the sex-ridden slums. It has the upstanding
citizens, and it has the criminals. On the Net, crime is more abundant
than in a large city, though, mainly because of the difficulties in
tracking and prosecuting offenders. Even from its beginnings, the Internet
has always been a battlefield between phreaks and administrators.
The Internet hasn't always been a public forum. In fact, the Internet has
been around for years. The Internet is just a new fad ("The More I Learn"

were in the room with you. For people who don't know much about computers,
you will be lost in the future. You should learn what you can while you
still have the chance, because things will develop to quickly for you and
you will not be able to cope with new technological events. Computer
consulting is a job, I have chosen long before the advances of technology.
And now it has paid off. I now have a business of my own, working as a
computer consultant. I assist others in learning about computers to be
able to operate more efficently in their everyday jobs. Computers will

Radar: A Silent Eye In The Sky
... and the
United States install radar aboard fighter planes, giving them an advantage in
plane-to-plane combat as well as air-to-ground attacks.
Radar works on a relatively simple theory. It's one that everybody has
experienced in their lifetime. Radar works much like an echo. In an echo, a
sound is sent out in all directions. When the sound waves find an object, such
as a cliff face, they will bounce back to the source of the echo. If you count
the number of seconds from when the sound was made to when the sound was heard,
you can figure out the distance the sound had to travel. The formula is:
(S/2) X 1100 = D (Half of the total time times 1100 feet

The user then can use his or her screen name and password to log on and use the
system. Most of the online systems have chat rooms where users can chat in real
time with one another. some users even think of on-line services as a community.
The second catagory involves Bulletin Boards or (BBS's). These services
allow the user accounts like their larger on-line service cousins. These BBS's
have less users because they run on smaller computers. The system operators,
more commonly known as sysops, are running the boards. Since most BBS's are
hobbies there is usually no charge ...
