Hacking the Western Digital My Book World Edition

The Mybook world edition is a great little NAS box that just needs a little help to become so much more. There are already a few communities springing up around the net to help improve it. One of those communities is found at http://mybookworld.wikidot.com. This is the community in which I’ll spend time and post my successes. But right here is where I’ll work and make mistakes.

Watching your priorities

The New York Times notes that the price of an Iraqi life, taken by a private, drunken security guard in a high-profile murder, is $15,000 (note that the typical Iraqi life appears to be worth $3000). It is interesting to note that a higher price was considered but dismissed because Iraqis might be prepared to get themselves killed for money. I kid you not).

In other news, a sexual harassment case has netted $11.6 million. It is interesting to note that no suggestion has been made that women will have themselves harassed for money.

Keep your priorities straight.

And for your lifeblood I will require a reckoning: from every beast I will require it and from man. From his fellow man I will require a reckoning for the life of man. (Gen 9:5)
