Actually, relevant to everything that promises
evidentiary-grade data -- take Encase, for example.

I'd suggest my former colleague Brian Carrier's
paper where he argued that only open source
forensics can have validity.

ask your learned list members if this discovery would work on the
innards and source code of radar guns! That's a bigger problem for me......

Oh God, I'm loving this. His fingerprints (and Cheney's) are all over 911,
the Downing Street Memo is clear evidence for impeachment, he's getting his
ditch ploughed by gay leather stud James "Bulldog" Guckert in the White
House, and now a pack of drunk drivers might be on the brink of voiding that
patently bogus "election" that Kerry so graciously threw last year.

This is why I no longer use LSD. In these times, it would be redundant.
