I was going to put this in 'Politics', but it's probably better suited here.
I'm at a loss for words. This is really sick. This has nothing to do with religion or laws or anything sane at all. These people just enjoy killing and use religion to justify it.

"Charges found against the accused were announced by a masked Islamic State fighter, using a small handheld radio.

Reading from a list, he declares the men are guilty of engaging in homosexual activities and should be punished by death, in accordance with Islamic State's radical interpretation of Sharia law."
I've been following this since it came on the news. Fortunately it's over now and as far as I know no one was killed, although some hostages were injured and it could have easily been worse. The perpetrator, an Iranian, was granted political asylum in 1996, a known trouble-maker and self-styled 'cleric'. I'm sure the Australian reaction must rightly be something along the lines of "we gave you a new lease on life and this is the thanks we get?" (On a side-note, my father was a naturalised Australian citizen and I'm pretty familiar with the Sydney area, so I can perceive incidents like this one as all the more loathsome and vile).
So should this 'cleric' stand trial in Australia, be deported to Iran, or something else? I look forward to your thoughts on this.
edit: It appears that the gunman and possibly another person may be dead, although it's not confirmed...
Okay, I'm looking into a new computer and have more or less selected an i5-based system -I've generally gone Intel in the past, but AMD's FX processors seem to be stiff competition and at better prices...
Whata you guys think?
I'm looking to replace an Asus p5kpl mobo… which has seemingly died or thereabouts. It's weird actually, because I don't get any beep code. (Yes I have a buzzer on the board and if I e.g. remove the graphics cards power supply, then it does give me the appropriate beep code). My mouse and keyboard seem to register, fans spin up normally - the green mobo led comes on indicating it's getting power - but no video output or disk access.
I've already tried 2 other known-to-be-working graphic cards, changing the monitor, resetting the cmos, changing the battery, as well as the PSU, but no dice, it just won't display anything on-screen, no post, nothing. This is actually the second mobo of this type that went bad on me in the last couple of years, the first was the mini-atx version which I replaced (very successfully) with a gigabyte ga-g41m-combo.
The processor is an (ageing, but still serviceable) Core duo - not sure of all the details though since the board won't effectively start. :(
I see that that particular gigabyte series is probably not available any more and core duo support in general, so thought I'd post here and get some feedback from you guys as to a good choice here - I'd prefer to be able to use that generation of graphic cards, but wouldn't mind going for some ddr3 memory. Kind of lost on this one. Thanks in advance for any ideas :)
