Subject:   This is totally ridiculous and a big waste of taxpayer's money
Date:   2001-07-11 11:27:22
From:   kilowatt
If installing the RC5 client is punishable by such a ridiculously excessive penalty, the State of Georgia would be better off going after the advertisers that stick cookies on machines to track web usage without the users knowledge, and sending the results back to the advertisers, for commercial purposes no less.


The RC5 client has been helpful in recovering stolen computers before, by tracing the IP the client used to connect from.
It seems the State of Georgia would rather spend more taxpayer's money replacing a stolen machine, then recovering one.


If the State of Georgia is paying 59 cents a second for bandwidth, they have already been taken to the cleaners.
