Under its new ruler, Kim Jong Un, North Korea has reverted to its old tactics of provocation and aggression with the launch this week of a long-range missile it claims was intended to put the country's first satellite into orbit. It's unclear whether the satellite made it into orbit, but that really isn't the point. The U.S. and its allies fear the country's space program is just an excuse to develop technology that can be used to build nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missiles, and Wednesday's launch showed the North Koreans are making progress toward that goal.

"FIFA Street" Developer: EA Canada Platform: Xbox 360, Playstation 3 Score: 9/10 It is not surprising that "FIFA Street" is a great game, given its parentage. "FIFA 12" is the highest achievement so far in EA's quest to rule the world's game, and "Street" has inherited the core DNA and formula for enjoyment that makes even non-soccer fans recognize "FIFA 12" as a great gaming experience. In the mid-'00s, the "FIFA Street" series existed not as an offshoot of the main 11-on-11 game but as a standalone, "NBA Jam"-style game that you had to like soccer to enjoy.

Maryland's new electronic voter check-in system, which poll workers across the region reported would abruptly shut down and reboot during Tuesday's primary, had never been used before during an election, the manufacturer acknowledged yesterday. At one Baltimore precinct, poll worker Al Samples, a 38-year-old computer scientist, said he could not prevent the three small check-in stations made by Diebold Election Systems Inc. - called e-poll books - from suddenly turning off. The machines crashed about 40 times, he said.

Even though Tristan Wilds' performance as Michael Lee in seasons 4 and 5 of The Wire is probably one of my favorite things about the entire series, I can't quite bring myself to watch the reboot of 90210, which stars Wilds as Dixon Mills. In an interview, Wilds discusses the fact that the his character on 90210 is going to be a star lacrosse player. "[Lacrosse] encompasses the best of all sports," Wilds said. "Hockey, football, baseball, basketball." (For more, go to baltimoresun.com/lifeofkings)

Afirmware update apparently has rectified the reboot-on-wake problem that has dogged the 2008 edition of the Mac Pro since its introduction just before the Macworld show in January. I use the word "apparently" because Apple does not mention the issue in its explanation of the update's benefits. Instead, we get only a vague statement: "This update fixes several issues to improve the stability of Mac Pro (Early 2008) computers." Owners of the affected Mac Pros can obtain the fix by running Software Update.

Can you help me eliminate this? All you and uncounted hundreds of thousands of other blighted users of Windows need to do to stop the nags is to change the Primary Network Logon setting. You will find the settings panel by right clicking on the Network Neighborhood icon on the Windows desktop. Pick Properties.

Prime-time TV tonight is a waste. Therefore, we'll focus on the new shows premiering this morning -- on the new kids' schedule.* "The Magic School Bus" (8 a.m.-8:30 a.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- To aging Baby Boomers, the phrase "Magic Bus" evokes musical memories of the Who. To their children, the same phrase evokes, instead, the illustrated book series by author Joanna Cole and illustrator Bruce Degen. Lily Tomlin provides the voice of Miss Frizzle, and today's commercial-TV preview of the new PBS series presents the episode in which the titular vehicle shrinks Miss Frizzle and her inquisitive students into the insides of a fellow student.

Uptime: Four days, 14 hours. After weeks of frustration, I think I have resolved the issue of my Mac Pro rebooting at random times when I tried to wake it from sleep state, most often after an overnight sleep. Many owners of the 2008 edition of the Mac Pro have struggled with this same issue. Mac forums and even Apple's own Web site have percolated with complaints, commiserations and proposed solutions for over a month. The most suggested remedies - resetting the PRAM and SMC (System Management Controller)

Russian cosmonauts restored several key computers aboard the International Space Station yesterday, resolving a problem that had bedeviled flight and ground crews from the U.S. and Russia for four days. Still, the orbiting craft's Russian-operated computer system - apparently knocked out by a power glitch when an American solar panel array was connected this week - reminded the world that the lofty ambitions of manned space exploration can rise or fall on technology as mundane as a power cable or a software malfunction.

Four players from the Century girls soccer team are expected to miss the remainder of the season after violating a Carroll County policy, school officials have confirmed. The players have been removed from the team's roster. Both school and county officials declined to comment about the specific circumstances. "Sometimes things like this happen," Knights coach Sara Figuly said. "It's unfortunate, but we were able to bring up four other girls from the JV team, and they've just done a spectacular job for us. I give my girls so much credit, because the ones that have been on the team for the entire year have really stepped it up."

MACON, Ga. A week into using OS/2 2.0, I'm still happy with IBM's new operating system.When IBM introduced Version 2, it was called "a better DOS than DOS, a better Windows than Windows and a better version than Version 1.3." That sounds like hyperbole, but I've found it's pretty close to the mark.Ignoring the "better version than Version 1.3" part as pretty obvious, let's look into IBM's claims.First, "a better DOS than DOS."One of DOS' major stumbling blocks is its 640-kilobyte memory limit.

BERLIN -- Italy, embroiled in a domestic soccer match-fixing scandal that could sink some of its most famous clubs and throw its league into turmoil, won the World Cup yesterday amid extraordinary scenes at the historic Olympic Stadium. The dramatic conclusion of the monthlong tournament had coach Marcello Lippi's Azzurri defeating France, 5-3 on penalty kicks, after the teams had played to a 1-1 tie in two hours of regulation and overtime. It was the Italians' fourth world championship but their first since 1982, and the victory sparked massive celebrations throughout Italy.
