I'm working on the NUS registration system for 2008; this week I'm adding security logging across to support the NUS card issue system. It's so boring I can't honestly think of anything to write about it that won't send you to sleep, so here's something completely different...

I'm not *that* stupid that I'm going to wade head-first into a raging debate about religious rights, but BBC News are covering a High Court challenge by a 16 year-old Christian today.

Her assertion is that her school's refusal to allow her to wear a ring symbolising her sexual purity - the "Silver Ring Thing" movement - is a breach of her human rights.

The story is here, but - since I'm a bit of a sheep when it comes to matters like this - I quickly found myself reading the "Have Your Say" discussion about this story.

Currently, the "most recommended" HYS entry reads, "As a practising Jedi, I am concerned that my daughter will not be able
to wear her robes and carry a lightsabre when she starts school. My neighbour, a zealot Rastafarian has learnt that his son will not be able to smoke hashish at school. Political correctness gone mad."
