Washington Post
Was Hunley the Victim of a Mighty Wind?
Records Suggest That a Cold Front Helped Sink Confederate Submarine
By Manuel Roig-Franzia
Washington Post Staff Writer
Monday, April 26, 2004; Page A13
COLUMBIA, S.C. -- The mystery of the CSS Hunley is one of those irresistible things,
made all the more tempting to the scientific mind because the answers seem tantalizingly
within reach. The old Confederate submarine fared so well during its 136 years at the
bottom of the ocean, just outside Charleston Harbor, that Harry Pecorelli III, an underwater
archaeologist studying the vessel, says it is "frozen in time," a stunning fossil of the Civil
War.

Federal Computer Week
Sprehe: Politicizing the Archives
BY J. Timothy Sprehe
April 26, 2004
With John Carlin as the incumbent archivist of the United States, the Bush administration
announced its intention to nominate conservative history professor Allen Weinstein to
replace him. Carlin responded that he will stay in place until Weinstein is confirmed, an
event that may not happen soon given the Senate confirmation process.
Weinstein's nomination creates many concerns. His published historical works have been
severely criticized on scholarship grounds.

The Dangers in Outbound E-Mail
By MICHAEL TOTTY
Staff Reporter of THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
April 26, 2004; Page R6
For most people, e-mail security is primarily about finding ways to
prevent bad stuff -- spam, viruses, hackers and the like -- from getting
into a computer network. But now companies are starting to look for
ways to keep stuff from getting out.
The reason is simple: For all the damage that invading viruses can do to
a system, businesses increasingly realize their greater vulnerability is
already inside. It's Marge in accounting or Bert in the call center --
employees who have access to valuable trade secrets, financial data or
confidential client information and who, intentionally or not, might send
it to someone who isn't authorized to receive it.

Need for a revolutionary solution to information
management.
BY CHARLES IKOABASI
The Lagos and Kaduna Offices of the National Agency for Drug Administration
and Control (NAFDAC) was consumed by fire recently. Destroying everything
from paper to electronics including some newly installed modern computer
systems.
The suspicion was that those who have a case to answer in matters of trade in fake
drugs were behind the fiery destructions, ostensibly to destroy vital evidence that
were going to be used to prosecute them.

Electronic voting debate: Can
computers ever be trustworthy?
By RACHEL KONRAD
Associated Press
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- A growing number of federal and state legislators are
expressing doubts about the integrity of the ATM-like electronic voting
machines that at least 50 million Americans will use to cast their ballots in
November.
Computer scientists have long criticized the so-called touchscreen
machines as not being much more reliable than home computers, which
can crash, malfunction and fall prey to hackers and viruses.

Diebold May Face Criminal Charges
By Kim Zetter | Also by this reporter Page 1 of 1
08:55 AM Apr. 23, 2004 PT
SACRAMENTO, California –- After harshly chastising Diebold Election Systems for what it considered deceptive business practices, a California voting systems panel voted unanimously Thursday to recommend that the secretary of state decertify an electronic touch-screen voting machine manufactured by the company, making it likely that four California counties that recently purchased the machines will have to find other voting solutions for the November presidential election.
The panel also voted to send the findings of its recent Diebold investigation to the state's attorney general for possible criminal and civil charges against the firm for violating state election laws.

The Register
Emails that come back to haunt
By Fran Howarth, IT-Analysis
Published Monday 26th April 2004 10:22Â GMT
When you delete an email, what happens? In most cases, the email
in question is transferred to a part of the computer where it may be
overwritten in case extra space is needed on the computer. Or it may
not - especially given the large capacity with which most computers
today are equipped. Either way, the majority of emails that we
delete can be found by specialised resources.
But why does it matter? Under new legislation, including
Sarbanes-Oxley and several rulings by the Securities and Exchange
Commission over the past couple of years specify for how long
business documents - including email - must be kept. While data
retention regulations vary from law to law, most have a minimum
retention period prescribed of at least two years, and
Sarbanes-Oxley specifies that business records should be kept for
five years, and those related to audits and business reviews must be
kept for seven years.

The Allen American
Exhibit displays photos by former college students
BY SHAWN FLOYD , STAFF WRITER 04/26/2004
While Andy Reisberg and Chris Regas have found a common bond in photography, within that genre they're often on the opposing ends of the pole. At one end is Reisberg, preserver and restorer of photos, and at the other end is Regas, teacher of a new generation of photography students.

Optical Storage Sings the Blues
Blue-laser technology will dramatically increase storage densities of optical media -- and lower costs.
Emerging Technology by Gary H. Anthes
APRIL 26, 2004
(COMPUTERWORLD) - Even IT
managers can get the blues. Or at least
that's what a gaggle of vendors are
hoping as they prepare ultradense optical
storage products based on blue-laser
technology.
Conventional optical technologies such as
CD, DVD and magneto-optical (MO)
drives write data using red lasers. But
makers of storage systems and recording
media are developing ways to read and
write using more efficient blue lasers.
Because these lasers operate at shorter
optical wavelengths, they can write more
data in the same space and write and read
data faster than devices that use red
lasers.

Wary of Wireless
How vulnerable are Wi-Fi networks?
Perhaps less than many companies fear.
By DANIEL NASAW
Staff Reporter of THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
April 26, 2004; Page R10
A wireless network in the workplace can increase productivity, mobility
and vendor and customer satisfaction, but are they secure?
As workers buy laptops with built-in wireless capability and public
wireless "hot spots" are popping up everywhere from coffee shops to
hotel rooms, companies are installing high-speed Wi-Fi wireless
networks in the office. But security fears linger.
Blame it on bad publicity. For instance, last fall, two men who were
parked outside a Lowe's Cos. home-improvement store in Southfield,
Mich., were able to gain access to six credit-card transactions, according
to a company spokeswoman.
