VNC for PSP

Nice! Now we can control our computers with our PSPs via VNC:

NHD of Team Xboxopensource has just released PVNC v1.1 for the PSP. VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is, in essence, a remote display system which allows you to view a computing ‘desktop’ environment not only on the machine where it is running, but from anywhere on the Internet and from a wide variety of machine architectures.

I’ll have to see if I can get this working with OS X.

India and Pakistan’s Code of Dishonor

Salman Rushdie’s latest NYT Op-Ed entitled, India and Pakistan’s Code of Dishonor is rather disconcerting in its discernment of some of the major problems of these two cultures:

The “culture” of rape that exists in India and Pakistan arises from profound social anomalies, its origins lying in the unchanging harshness of a moral code based on the concepts of honor and shame. Thanks to that code’s ruthlessness, raped women will go on hanging themselves in the woods and walking into rivers to drown themselves. It will take generations to change that. Meanwhile, the law must do what it can.
