The Washington Post had this to say about the attacks:
"The sites are all produced and operated by GovTrends, an Alexandra-based company that specializes in building political web sites and e-mail newsletter systems, said Jeff Ventura, spokesman for the House chief administrative officer."
A hit-or-miss project
And former astronaut Russell L. Schweickart had this comment:
“It takes a very small change in the Apophis orbit to cause it to impact the Earth instead of missing it,” Mr. Schweickart said. “There are a million asteroids out there. Find another one.”
"Next time please report on how much heat these new cards put out"
The power draw is entirely converted to heat. Take the power consumption of the video adapter, say 188W, and use a calculator like the one below to convert it to the units of heat you want.
Of course, some of the heat is vented outside the case, and some inside. Information about that might be useful.
"Pretty much everyone in the US has access to electricity and the telephone, which was brought about without state ownership of the companies providing the services."

Taken during a movie shoot?
About 25 years ago, I was watching a rented video titled "Pretty Baby" starring Ms. Shields. Near the end was a brief (maybe 5 second) scene exactly matching the description of this picture. It struck me as gratuitous at the time, not really essential to the story being told. I wonder if that's where the picture was taken.
...all seem to be ok. 3.5 seems to be a little faster as well.
enables you to detect frequencies from 16Hz to around 20,000Hz.
Longevity of the treatment
As a previous poster noted, the surface structure produced by this treatment might disappear as the bulb ages and the filament evaporates. Halogen bulbs have an additional problem. As the bulb ages, evaporated tungsten would be redeposited on the filament, destroying the treatment's remaining surface structure.
At first glance...
It does seem that some other agency, the Centers for Disease Control for example, might be more appropriate for this kind of work. On the other hand, an epidemic of a disease with a high mortality rate does have national security implications.
to the previous comments.
Now if someone keyed a large transmitter on the plane...
Like the aircraft's transponder, or the pilot's communications to Air Traffic Control...
I just don't see on-board electronic gadgets as being the culprit here.
But why not...
"But why not simply compress the helium into high-pressure storage tanks when it's not needed?"
My thoughts exactly...

"You'd be meaning Shutter glasses then"
No, I meant traditional polarized viewing glasses. I was imagining a system where a single projector might show alternating left and right images, while changing the light polarization 90 degrees in between them.
How is this new?
"new style 3D glasses, which feature polarizing lenses, rather the traditional hurl-inducing red and green"
All the 3D movies I saw in the 1950s were viewed with polarized glasses. With the exception of using a single projector with (presumably) a synchronized polarizer, I don't see anything new here.
"As to the cost of the ISS. $100G is a lot of money."
The US Air Force motto
'Homeland Security' translates as 'Staatssicherheit' into German.
The US Air Force motto translates as "Uber Alles."
Maybe this time...
FED has been a "Real Soon Now" technology for the last 10 or 15 years. The main obstacle to its commercial introduction has been the degradation of the field emitters (originally microscopic tungsten spikes) over time. If carbon nanotubes are a solution to this problem, FEDs could be a serious competitor to other display technologies.
Or unbelievably incompetent...
He should sue his employer
My son-in-law has worked for insurance companies in various capacities. His company-issued laptops were always restricted in what he was able to do with them. They had a standard company image installed, and he was unable to install software of any kind and unable to browse the Internet.
Reading the article, It looks to me like the IT department of Mr. Fiola's employer was unbelievably negligent.
Credit cards too?
I've never used Skype or any VOIP, but (living in the US) I was just hit with an unauthorized charge from them on my CREDIT CARD. I also have a PayPal account. Could someone have gotten my credit card info from PayPal?
Multiple problems with XP update
My media card reader disappeared, multiple drive letters were reassigned, system froze during restore (2nd attempt successful). My system had the most recent XP patches & updates, including SP3.
"Don't buy Creative!"
Well then, what SHOULD I buy? Any suggestions? So far no one's recommended an alternative.
