Don't Try This at Home
Apparently there are folks in the federal government who thought that the folks at United Nuclear might be up to no good.

Harper doesn't eat babies: GO Transit Sign Hacked:
"Gerry Nicholls thought he was hallucinating as he kicked back in his seat to take the 35-minute GO train ride to his Oakville home.
About every three seconds, the scrolling electronic sign that usually carries transit updates and advertisements had a very different message that he just could not keep his eyes off.
'Stephen Harper Eats Babies. Stephen Harper Eats Babies. Stephen Harper Eats Babies,' the message kept repeating.
'No one (in the car) seemed to be reacting to it,' said Nicholls, who happens to be vice-president of the National Citizens Coalition, the same conservative think-tank formerly headed by Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper "
For more on the technology end of this...see the post about i-hacked.com. They covered exactly how to hack these signs.
ConocoPhillips is removing the iconic 76 Balls and replacing them with boring rectangular signs that aren't even orange! A petition and boycott asks that they STOP THIS and leave the remaining 76 Balls on their poles, where they belong.
Save the 76 Ball it's not too late!
I hate it when dumb corporate people are so inconsiderate of obvious "Americana".

A very cool trip down memory lane and an interesting "timeline" style reference for computer users. It will make you think..."Wow people actually used that thing?
