I love government databases.

Via the ASI I read about this new real time display of containers that arrive in the US. Read here. Each container is listed with the contents and we must not forget it is illegal to lie to Uncle Sam. For a fee you can access this data and search it and it is apparently a boon to many people.

I'm sure it is. After all how many times have hijackers made off with a lorry load of plastic toys from China and not the super new microchips and memory they were after? Those timesare behind us now.

Isn't technology wonderful and it's compulsory too.
