  1. Mackinnon is not a ‘hacker hiding in Britain’ and he would not be extradited ‘back’ to the US. He is British and he accessed the US computers from Britain. He should have been charged and tried in Britain.

  2. 50 per cent chance I’m male, 50 per cent chance I’m female.
    But I’ve been on the Net for, like, 15 minutes today and I have my browser set to erase history data whenever I close it. So the calculator thingy didn’t have much to go on, I suppose.

  3. Oh MAN! I visit torrent sites ALL THE TIME. I had been visiting Circuit City, Carmax, techgeek sites, anime sites, guitar sites, and bbc. What is up with more guys reading bbc, btw?

    Oh, and I got a %73 female (I am female). I guess the visit to payless online tipped it just a bit. I hate Gender stereotypes.

    Speaking of which, Detroitus, what does looking at porn have to do with being male or female? I visit porn sites all the time. Or does that just make me the odd female out?

    Like the idea of scientists sequencing DNA to find out that there is a new species somewhere…but I’m not entirely sure that it would be a Yeti, per se.

    And WOOT for mixing science and music! Astrophysics is a absurdly fascinating subject…

  4. Honestly, I think a lot more women enjoy porn than us men would be led to believe. But the key is that most women refuse to admit it. Hence the gender stereotype.

    Would you really expect porn sites to be evenly balanced on that little calculator thingy? I kinda doubt it…

  5. Oh Hai we can has foster in L.A. area plz?The kittens above were rescued this morning from becoming feral breeders – they’re about a month old, eating soft food, and, well look at them. (I hope the html worked)

    Please tell me if you know of anyone in the L.A. area who can help. Thanks!

  6. “Honestly, I think a lot more women enjoy porn than us men would be led to believe. But the key is that most women refuse to admit it. Hence the gender stereotype. ”

    I suspect men might be more willing to pay for porn sites, though.

  7. 80% female on my laptop here at work. My home desktop was around 50/50, IIRC, but only took 2 or 3 sites into account. I must have set my history to clear and forgot. I keep it clean here at work, but I don’t hide anything on my home pc. Hmmm…

  8. 80% chance of being male from my office computer. Me big he man.

    Actually, it appears from the breakdown that the technology sites I use for work account for a lot of this. A woman in the same job would have similar results…and my predecessor is a woman.
