UF prevents legal downloading of file-sharing software
* THE ICARUS SYSTEM DOES
NOT ALLOW 'FAIR USE.'
By JESSICA GAVILAN
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF's homegrown network-moni-
toring software has become a point
of contention for students who say
the program prevents them from
legal downloading activities and
infringes on their rights.
ICARUS, which is largely re-
sponsible for the prevention of peer-
to-peer software usage on campus,
has outraged a number of students
who claim it violates their rights.
But despite protest, the patent-
pending program may soon be
available to universities nationwide.
Increating ICARUS, UF's initial
inclination was to develop a pro-
gram that would solve network con-
gestion, said Mark Hoit, the interim
associate provost for in-
Student formation technology.
Lift "Based on that
bandwith needed, we
looked at the Web traf-
fic and determined that a lot of it
was due to illegal file sharing," Hoit
said. "It was more cost effective to
limit students from downloading
things they shouldn't be download-
Materials science and engineer-
ing student Zachary Harper said
his biggest problem with ICARUS
is that the software doesn't discrimi-
nate between copyright infringe-
ment and fair use.
Harper, who is part of the
facebook.com group STOP ICARUS,
said he feels UF should permit

Caboose gets spruced
By KARI TARR
Alligator Contributing Writer
In a small town west of
Gainesville, less than a mile from
the town's only stoplight, past the
Cross Creek Baptist Church and sur-
rounded by huge fields of grass, sits
a tired, old caboose.
But it won't look old for long.
Eight UF students have been
spending their Saturdays in the
small town of Archer, donating their
time to restore an antique caboose.
Once the last car on a train that may
have roared through North Florida,
it now sits in City Recreational Park.
Members of the "Caboose
Project," led by UF graduate student
James Marini, are working to restore
the antique caboose so it can even-
tually be turned into a concession
stand for park sporting events.
This project is a small part of
Archer's efforts to improve its youth
recreational programs and give chil-
dren in the area something to do.
Leon Wetherington, the project's
faculty adviser, was contacted by
City Commissioner Roberta Lopez
and asked to take on the project.
Wetherington, who holds a doc-
torate in building construction, has
personally invested $1,100.
"He's always pushing us to give
back to the community," Marini said.
All eight of the project's crew
members are taking Wetherington's
superstructures course at UF. Marini
volunteered to take on the role of
"It's our own project, so if we
want something done, we have to
do it," Marini said.
The caboose, which has been
painted bright red -on one side, suf-
fered years of vandalism and neglect.
Pictures of the caboose from less
than a month ago tell a grim story.
Broken windows, rotting wood
and graffiti made it look less like an
antique and more like a junkyard
Gainesville are black from a
fire and wood has
been torn away by termites.
Cynthia Tucker, an entomology
expert from UF, was brought out to
investigate the damage. The crew
learned that extensive extermina-
tion would be necessary.
The biggest challenge of the
project, however, has been the wood
framing, Marini said.
On one side of the caboose, all the
old framing had to be removed be-
fore a new wall could be installed.
Marini said he thinks it will be at
least another month before they can
finish the project.
"Our goal in this is to make it
structurally sound, and that's what
it's going to be," Marini said.
Marini said he hopes the project
will be symbolic to the city of Archer
as railroads have played a signifi-
cant role in shaping the city.
The crew can be found ham-
mering away Saturdays at the City
Recreational Park, 13975 SW 174th
St., in Archer.

SG officials misled in
limiting speaker funds
Student Government has attempted the unthinkable:
As with most of its brushes with the monetary
beast, SG only superficially addressed the problem. In fact,
we think it might have made things worse.
The SG Senate Budget and Appropriations C6mmittee
enacted a rule that student organizations can spend only
50 percent of their event budgets on speakers.
Enforcing a cap on such events isn't a terrible idea; it
just gets sketchy when it's unclear what the remaining 50
percent will be spent on.
Since the Asian American Student Union is so outspoken
on the issue, we'll use it as an example. For Kaleidoscope.
Month, the group is asking for about $10,000. They want to
spend about $8,000 on a band, but the new rule will allow
them to spend only $5,000.
Where will the remaining $5,000 go?
Committee Chairwoman Jackie Pace said the rule hope-
fully will bring a variety of activities at events.
What sort of activities is Pace hoping for? An arts-and-
crafts session with a local clown?
As budgets get higher, more can be spent on a speaker.
But more must also be spent on undefined "activities."
Let's be realistic. Students come to events for two
reasons the speakers and the food. With organizations
now limited on spending for both, they don'thave many
Maybe they should hand out the extra money to stu-
dents at the events. That would add variety.
Such a blanket rule is unnecessary. Committee mem-
bers should be deciding how much to allocate on a case-
by-case basis. Many groups probably blow their budgets
on poorly chosen speakers, but SG cannot assume all
organizations are likewise guilty.
This rule enables the budget committee to be more care-
less with specifics. Instead of looking at whether the event
is worthwhile and fiscally responsible, the committee can
just take the easy road and cap the speaker allocation at
On the other hand, this rule might also make the com-
mittee's job more difficult.
If organizations are set on acquiring a certain speaker,
they could balloon their budget proposals until the 50-per-
cent mark is at what they need. Instead of estimating the
total amount of money they need for the event, they will
base their proposals entirely on the speakers' fees. This
inflation would force SG to cut budgets significantly.
SG's fiscal problems are not based on the internal ex-
penses of student organizations. They are tied to SG of-
ficials' careless expenditures.
Furthermore, officials increase many organizations'
budgets every year. Do all of them deserve to be increased?
Are increases necessary to every group's goal?
Rules do not solve most of SG's fiscal problems.
Officials must take the responsibility onto themselves.
But as much as we disagree with the budget commit-
tee's new rule, we also think organizations should comply.
They can object all they want, but they shouldn't refuse to
follow the, committee's budget outline.
SG can't be blamed for refusing funding if students
don't draw out their proposals in the correct way.
We're glad the budget committee is taking steps to be
responsible with student funds, but it needs to take an-
other step back to see the bigger issues.

Hurricanes reveal Floridian philosophy
'm getting sick of bashing Bush. We all know his new-
est Supreme Court favorite, Harriet Miers, is under-
qualified. Abroad, the war in Iraq reached a death
toll of 1,996 Sunday, and protesters are gearing up for the
If you're not outraged, you're probably not listening.
And for once, I'm not going to make'you. I'm in the mood
for something lighter: hurricanes.
With Hurricane Wilma tearing through the Florida Keys
and Tropical Depression Alpha brewing, I couldn't help but
think about the storms we've weathered this year.
Instead of leaving when a mandatory evacuation
was ordered for the Keys, most of the locals boarded
up, stocked up and then threw a party in full costume
and revelry. To the rest of our country, we probably look
crazy, but what else can you expect from a Buffett-sing-
ing, Hawaiian shirt-wearing, bathing-suits-on-Christmas
Wilma marks the fourth mandatory evacuation for the
Keys this year alone, andmost residents-seem to be sick of
the drill. What are a few days without power and water
when you're wasting away in Margaritaville year-round?
Our common ground lies deeply rooted in a lazy, beach-
comber dogma, inherent in natives and easily understood
by foreigners after a single vacation.
Besides hurricanes, there's another pricey concern for
Key West at this time of the year: Fantasy Fest. The outra-
geous annual festival of costumes, dancing in the streets
and complete debauchery is reminiscent of Mardi Gras, but
with the added Floridian flare of flowers and sandy beach:
es. In fearless "the-show-must-go-on" style, the mayor of
Key West has not yet canceled the extravaganza.
And why should he? We're known for palm trees, cit-
rus and vacation hotspots, not the hurricanes that threaten
our perpetual paradise every year.
In fact, most of the bartenders
in the Keys said they would reopen
today. That kind of mentality re-
minded me of Gainesville last Fall
when classes were canceled for a couple of days due to
hurricanes. Attending hurricane parties became a full-
time job. When the days lingered on, the one supply most
college students found in shortage wasn't lumber or water
or batteries. It was beer.
Although I'm sure UF President Bernie Machen would
love to point this out as a clear example of UF's alleged
"alcohol problem," I believe it perfectly exemplifies the es-
sence of a true Floridian philosophy. Hurricanes will come
and go, and Floridians seem to realize better than most
that material possessions just aren't that important in the
face of an angry storm.
Despite the fact that many students have gone home (or
will go home) to towns and houses in ruins, there endures
a resiliency forcing us to keep our heads above water. It
takes a certain kind of person to keep living here year af-
ter year of approaching storms, grabbing a surfboard and
heading for the beach instead of evacuating.
Whether you ran down University Avenue in your
underwear Saturday or are wearing your shorts this
weekend in Jacksonville, you're a Floridian. You've been
branded as such by that laid-back demeanor and tendency
to smile in the face of disaster.
We've almost made it through another hurricane
season with our expected vitality and strength intact. So
for one night, sit back, relax and order another round on-

Letters to the Editor
Bush's incapability goes beyond polls
Matt Sanchez's column used to be called
"Pure Foppery," and back then, he actually
seemed to make some sense. However, since
the new semester began, Sanchez renamed
his column "In Moderation" and has steadily
devolved into circling the wagons around the
many bungles of George W. Bush.
Perhaps he should. rename hl, column
"Pure Crockery." Friday's column wa- hi-u
coup de grace.
When I read the title "Bush'. capability not
gauged by polls," I expected to -ee some -ort

Could it be that Clinton had a 73 percent
approval ratng because Amencans loved
his fiscal responsibility, the lower crime rate
and the qualified people running the various
federal agencies? Could it be that they really
didn't care about what happened under the
Oval Office desk?
Sanchez rehashes a previous column where
he actually tried to fob off blame for Hurricane
Katrina's unnecessarily deadly aftermath onto
other officials and Mother Nature.
I'm sorry, but Mother Nature doesn't take a
six-week vacation every summer to get photo
ops of herself at her ranch. Mother Nature
doesn't appoint cronies to run important
agencies despite their complete lack of experi-
Mother Nature created Katrina; Bush and
his band of merry morons created the "Mad
Max" apocalyptic sequence that followed in
the weeks after the hurricane.

President should work to unify country
There were a couple of disconcerting state-
ments in Friday's guest column. Matt Sanchez
implied that the presidential approval ratings,
like other popularity 'contests, have "little to
do with job effectiveness." However, we have
a huge popularity contest in this country every
four years to decide who gets the job of presi-
dent, so I would presume that the updated
results these polls provide are very telling
If the president gets better results now than
his election-night totals, then he is working
well to unify the country and move things in
the right direction. If, however, the president
gets worse results now, then he is not handling
the surprises thrown his way (such as Mother
Nature's hissy fits) in a way that the electing
public would like to see.
Furthermore, it is downright alarming that
only 8 percent of Democrats approve of the
job that the president is doing. With millions
of Democrats and Republicans in this country,
a unifying leader should work toward earning
the support of all citizens, or at least all large
groups of citizens.
On the other hand, making or revitalizing
divisive splits between large groups of citizens
will lead to poor results.
Ultimately, while it's true that "events out
of the president's control have an effect on
Americans' responses" in approval ratings,
the president must be an effective figurehead.
If Americans do not see him in times
of strife, or if strife reveals poor delegation
decisions, then you will see lower approval
ratings. Do not dismiss them outright, as they
contain important information.

Gators remember Georgia game, Zook one year later
By IAN FISHER
Alligator Staff Writer
Despite a subpar offense and a
load of injuries, the Gators feel bet-

against Georgia than they did a
On the Monday before last sea-
son's Georgia game, Ron Zook was
fired, leaving the Gators to play
one of their biggest rivals in a state
of disarray. The Gators lost 31-24,
and it was the toughest week in
some of the UF players' careers.
"It was tough knowing that
you look around the room and a
lot of people that are here aren't
going to be there anymore," se-
nior linebacker Todd McCullough
said. "We just kind of circled the
wagons and realized that the only
people that were important were
the people in the room and their
families. It was a tough experience
for all of us last year."
The ensuing hangover from the
firing showed in the first half of
the game, with the Gators -entering

first half, the Gators rebounded,

Jeremy Mincey said. "We were
thinking, 'our coach is gone, what
are we playing for?' We were just
out there. We gave it what we
could for him."

UF senior linebacker
Receiver Jemalle Cornelius
said that if the Gators had an extra
quarter or two, the game could've
been a lot different since momen-
tum seemed to switch at halftime.
But time ran out.
"It just seemed like every-
thing was going in slow motion,"
Cornelius said. "We had a lot go-
ing on that week. A lot weighing
on people's minds, and I think we
were still in shock that first half."
Cornelius said a lot of players
spoke about the dilemma at half-
time, but he couldn't remember
any specific words of encourage-
Senior safety Jarvis Herring
said the first half may have helped
the Gators grow up.
"I don't -even know what was
going on then. I think guys were
still feeling sorry for themselves,"
Herring said. "Everything just
started clicking. Guys started
growing up from the moment.
You saw the last part of the season.
Everybody went [hard] from then
on. I guess it was learning our les-
son during the game."
Mincey said the players started
getting closer after that game.
Center Mike Degory was wait-
ing for someone to take charge in
the first half, but no one did. In the
second half, the whole team did.
"I don't think it was anybody,"
Degory said. "I think it was kind of
a collective thing. Offensively, we
started moving the ball well and
the defense shut them out. It kind
of just was looking like we were
looking for that spark and we kind
of got that spark."

to use Zook's firing as an excuse
for the team's poor first-half per-

jumpstart the UF women's basketball

"The motto.is once a Gator, always
a Gator," Morehead said. "I didn't have
anything else to do, so I might as well
contribute in any way possible."
After being drafted, she was given a
chance to make it in the WNBA, play-

Serving as a mentor to the largest
freshman class in the team's history, she
expands on what Coach Carolyn Peck
says in practice.
"Being that I was under Coach Peck
and played under her rules and under
her style of play, I'm most helpful for
her freshmen," Morehead said. "This
atmosphere is something new to them.
It's a comfort zone for them to have
someone their age to relate to."
Peck is also hoping that Morehead
can show UF's upperclassmen players
how to serve as leaders.
"She is one player who had great
respect from the rest of her team," Peck
said. "I think that will help our seniors
understand the value and the impor-
tance of what their leadership is going
to mean for these freshmen."
Morehead's peers are already buy-
"I think that's going to be a phenom-
enal addition to us," senior Brittany
Davis said. "She's a great motivator.
She's good at getting people to learn
what they need to do."
But Morehead hasn't forgotten about
her dreams to play pro basketball, and
she plans to give the WNBA another try
after she earns her college degree.
"I would try to get back, why not?"
Morehead said. "I would take the

when she saw a flier looking for interested

for academics, not athletics.
In fact, she had never played a sport in
her life before taking up fencing.
"When she first came to UF, she was ab-
solutely the furthest thing from an athlete
that you could irinagine," fencing coach
Bruce Capin said. "She has worked very
