"[Iranian foreign ministry] asked the British government to start dialogue with the protesters and to listen to their demands in order to calm the situation down."

I think I know their demands, wii, xbox, plasma tv, nike air dunks, iphone etc

I get the feeling foreign press think there is some sort of politcal agenda.

But I'm not suggesting placing more 'controls' over this, I don't think over-zealous authoritarianism is a solution either. Yes, there will always be bad parents and wrong 'uns generally – but I think suggesting that all these people are rioting/looting JUST because of their parenting is reductive and ignores the many other important factors at play here, and if we want to stop this kind of thing happening again, we need to look at all of them together.

You might find this article by Zoe Williams on the psychology of looting interesting:

Google Sketchup vs Autodesk 123D, anybody use them both? I need something that exports stl (sketchup can with a rb plugin, which I use) does 123D export arc's instead of segements in stl? Quite important for converting stl to g-code.
