Hey, I take exception to that! I don't say "Wooo." I say, "Wooohahahah! WOOOOHahahHAHAHAH!!!!!"

The latest tactic in computer politics is to go _on strike_. Web users in the UK are trying to organize a kingdom-wide "CYBERSTRIKE" for tomorrow (12-13-1998) to protest price gouging by British Telecom.

In the US, crypto-advocate, author and crazy Lisp programmer, Bob Glickstein, is calling for pretty much every computer professional in the WHOLE WORLD to go on a one-day strike this coming Monday (12-14-1998) in order to protest the international "Wassenaar Agreement," which was signed on December 3rd by 33 countries, including the United States.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
