  1. Oh how did this pass me by I wonder. This could easily turn out to be the best group Play ever written. Lovely Idea lets make it more interesting ..
  2. Hi bro Sophist…. as I cant see anyone trying to answer your question, I thought perhaps I should take a gamble. Should you find this unconvincing please don’t blame me as I’m not Economist. Rather an Optimist. ``Market socialism'' is a current of ideas, starting, it seems, with the eminent Polish economist Oskar Lange, for how to make extensive use of markets without thereby creating gross economic and political inequality. Making rational economic decisions about really big, unavoidably political issues, like, say, education or public health is hard enough; there's no reason to add to the burden any more than it has to be, and markets are very good at letting us live our economic lives without thinking too hard about them. For a hundred and fifty years, struggles for radical egalitarian alternatives to capitalism have been waged under the banner of "socialism." While the precise meaning of this idea has always been the object of intense debate, radical egalitarians have usually believed that an economy based on private ownership of the principle means of production and the overriding search for profit maximization could be supplanted by one organized around the satisfaction of human needs through some kind of public or social ownership. Even among those social democratic reformers whose political efforts were directed mainly towards ameliorating conditions in the existing society rather than working for a rupture with capitalist institutions, socialism still served as a visionary backdrop which kept radical egalitarian values alive. Increasingly in the last decade, this vision has seemed to many people to be a fantasy. This is perhaps ironic. One might have anticipated that the demise of the command economies in the USSR and elsewhere would have emancipated the idea of socialism from the liabilities the Soviet authoritarianism. After all, for decades democratic socialists in the West had been denouncing the undemocratic practices in the Soviet Union and arguing that socialism should be understood as the extension of radical democracy to the economy rather than bureaucratic control of production. At long last, one might have thought, the ideal of democratic socialism could gain credibility. That is not what has happened. With the end of authoritarian state socialism, the idea of socialism itself has lost credibility. Capitalism increasingly seems to many people of the left as the only viable possibility. For all of its deep and tragic flaws, the empirical example of the Soviet Union at least demonstrated to people that some alternative to capitalism was possible; capitalism was not the only game in town. Democratic socialists could then plausibly argue that the flaws in the command economies could be remedied with serious democratic reconstruction. Without the practical example of even a flawed, but still radical, alternative to capitalism, capitalism assumes ever more strongly the character of a "natural" system, incapable of radical transformation. In this context, the left is in vital need of bold and creative new thinking on the question of the institutional conditions for radical egalitarian alternatives to capitalism. Whether or not in the end such alternatives are properly described as "socialism" is not really the important question; the crucial issue is forging well-grounded ideals of how such egalitarian values can be translated into a politics of radical institutional innovation.
  3. You should the celebrations around the city of London and around the country. Its reminiscent of 1966 or there about. They did not only beat them but they frustrated them too. GOOOOO England Go England......
  4. Haniif bro try ... Exchange and Active Directory
  5. When your country is on fire and you are homeless this is what happens to you. You get kicked wherever you are. No one is to blame but the shear stupidity of our own people. Today Somalis are victims in many countries and are treated as filth in some places. Its a disgrace to see our people surfer like they do due to some few Corrupt leaders who wouldnt know the plight of their own people.
  6. Atlast ENG revenge on Argentina. Last time the English beat Argentina was in 1966. After all these years we kicked the shite out of them.
  7. Extracts from the Daily Nation By PAMELA CHEPKEMEI Fourty-Eight Somali nationals were yesterday remanded in custody to enable their lawyer obtain instructions from them through an interpreter. The foreigners including 35 women and 13 men are accused of being in the country illegally, had appeared before Nairobi Chief Magistrate Boaz Olao but lawyer Stephen Owino requested that the case be adjourned . The magistrate directed that the suspects be brought to court today to answer the charges. They were arrested on Wednesday evening that Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. The lawyer asked the magistrate to allow 13 women who had infants to hand them over to the relatives but Mr Olao said they did not need the court's permission to do so.
  8. Haniif bro...I dont known if this will help but have alook and see what you think. A) The latest beta of Windows 2000 has the Microsoft Active Directory Connector (ADC) which replicates a hierarchy of directory objects between the Exchange Server 5.5 directory and the Windows 2000 Active Directory. Protocol 389 is used for LDAP communication but if you are running Windows 2000 and Exchange 5.5 on the same computer then you may find Exchange has problems starting the LDAP directory service and thus stopping you creating the connection. To get around this change the port the Exchange LDAP service uses by double clicking LDAP under ConfigurationProtocols and change the protocol, e.g. to 1020. Restart the Exchange Directory service for the change to take effect. Exchange 5.5 with service pack 3 allows you to change the port used by LDAP SSL. Also if you install Exchange 5.5 on a 2000 Domain controller you must make the Exchange Server account a member of the local Server Operators group. I've been referring to the Active Directory as a database of users, but that's not all you'll find in the Active Directory. Under NT 5.0, Active Directory will also contain information about the machines on the network, shares available on the network, and available applications. Active Directory will be the central repository of network configuration information. C) Many people considered X.500 to be something of a cumbersome protocol, and the Internet world came up with LDAP, an alternative method of accessing X.500 directories. Running an LDAP client imposes less system overhead than X.500. Also, LDAP is an Internet protocol, and X.500 is a Consultative Committee for International Telegraphy and Telephony (CCITT) protocol. LDAP will definitely correct one of the sins of NT.

  10. Oh forgot to mention the teams I would like to see win the world cup. Ofcouse ENGLAND is number UNO and then SENEGAL. I really like the way the S.Koreans and Japanese have played so far and I think in this world we will see alot of suprises somehow. I think a team least expected to win the world cup will win it. If the USA can beat Portugal at what they are good at then surely there is alot to look forward to. Cant wait for Senegal and Denmark Morrow morning.
  11. I think what Rivaldo did was absolutely disgraceful. He fell like a sack of potatoes and clutched his head like an eye popped out. I thought it was pretty much very amusing.
