One of the most celebrated accidents took place over Palomares, Spain, in January 1966 when a U.S. B-52 collided with a KC-135 tanker during midair refueling and released all four of its hydrogen bombs in the ensuing explosion. Seven of the 11 crewmen aboard both planes were killed.

Microsoft: XP SP3 Does Not Support Windows XP

Believe it or not, but Microsoft does not support Windows XP with XP SP3. Well, maybe that's not entire true. But it is true nonetheless. End users will find they they are unable to deploy XP SP3 on top of XP. What is the catch? You just have to think of XP not as a single version but as a continually evolving product. In this context, XP SP3 does not support Windows XP RTM. XP was released to manufacturing back in 2001, and the original version
of the operating system is no longer supported by Microsoft.

No More Registry from Vista SP1 and XP SP3 to Windows 7?

Windows 7 is the next iteration of the Windows operating system that will succeed Windows Vista. Following the availability of the latest Windows Client, Windows Vienna was the codename for the next version of Windows. Of course that, at that time, the legacy of Jim Allchin, the former Co-President, Platforms & Services Division, was still strong with the company. Things were about to change as Steven Sinofsky stepped onto the stage. Coming from leading the development of the Office system of programs, servers and services, Sinofsky implemented the same tactics he applied for the Office 2007 System with Windows Vienna.

Armenian leader warns protesters
By Matthew Collin
BBC News, Yerevan

The outgoing President of Armenia, Robert Kocharian, has threatened a "firm response" to what he called opposition attempts to seize power.

Opposition supporters have been protesting around the clock about the results of Tuesday's presidential elections which they say were rigged.

According to official results, Armenia's current Prime Minister, Serge Sarkisian, was elected president.

International observers have judged the poll to be generally democratic.

Official results give Mr Sarkisian 53% of the vote, with Mr Ter-Petrosian his nearest rival on 21.5%.

On Saturday around 50,000 people held the biggest demonstration against the election result so far despite having no official permission to do so.

The demonstrators have set up a tent camp in Yerevan's Freedom Square, they say they will stay there until the authorities back down.

Also on Saturday, thousands of Armenian women stood face to face with a line of riot police chanting the name of the opposition leader they believe was the real winner of this week's elections, Levon Ter-Petrosian.

The women had marched through the streets of the capital bringing traffic to a standstill.

"The people wont remain silent about this authoritarian regime," one of the women said, "we believe they have no right to be in power".

The outgoing President, Robert Kocharian, says he views actions like these as an attempt to seize power.

He says the government's response would be decisive and firm to maintain stability and order.

But an opposition spokesman dismissed this warning and said the protests would continue until the election results are overturned.

He said any use of force would be catastrophic for the government.

________________________________________________________________

I'm among those tens of thousands of people (and most of them are students and young people) who have been standing in Freedom Square for already 4 days. Gosh, some of my friends even sleep in the tents despite the minus zero temperatures. The time is now, either we change something or regret all our lives.

On February 19 Serzh Sargsyan took away my dignity and I'll never accept him as my president.

A Turkish airlines plane crashed today in Schiphol airport in Amsterdam. 9 are reported dead and further 6 are still in uncertain condition. The cause for the crash is as yet undetermined.

Always scary with plane crashes, and it's hardly more than a week since I landed in Schiphol.
