Political appetite for online porn

The article, published online in the World Net Daily, reports that according to technicians who worked on the system, material downloaded by people using White House computers allegedly included streaming sex videos, gay pornography, and sexual activities with donkeys, goats and dogs.

The Clinton Administration has been prominent in promoting the use of legal and technical measures to block pornography on the Internet.

Staff at Government departments in Australia have also been found to have an interest in sexually explicit online material.

An Australian-based censorship watchdog site carries extensive listings of the IP addresses of computers located in government departments which have accessed Web pages containing nude and pornographic images maintained by the site's owner, Bernadette Taylor. Taylor's site logs more than 1200 visits to a selection of four pornographic web sites linked to from her site and includes IP addresses of those visitors.

The lists include the names of the Australian government departments whose staff have visited the sites, and includes visitors from the WA Health Department, Australian Defence Organisation, Parliament House, the Department of Workplace Relations and Small Business and the Government Secure Gateway Environment, amongst others.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
