NBC's Peacock Crows and Ohio's Voting Machines

Lunch blogging:

NBC lawyers managed to stop a story from being aired where their own site was broken into. Smart move, at least it gives them sometime to fix it before the vulnerability and exploit were made available to every teen geek in the country. (Assuming a few could find their way in anyway)

Meanwhile, in Ohio efforts to test the integrity of the voting system were apparently blocked by republicans who mysteriously also oversee the state's elections. Again, I lament why are slot machines so much more secure than voting machines?
