    Normally I just come to work, get my coffee, and read my ISN in the
    morning and I'm happy.  Today I ventured onto slashdot as I tend to
    from time to time, and came across something that might be of interest
    to some other ISN readers.  It appears that the DMCA, in all it's
    horrid splendor, has prevented RedHat from disclosing the details of a
    new kernel patch to any people in the US or under US jurisdiction.  
    The full story you might want to distribute is here:
    I have not continued past the thefreeworld.net disclaimer as I don't
    wish to implicate my employer in anything.  What I do in my off time
    is my own business, however this whole thing is ridiculous.
