the Linux community horribly abuses those inocents who are looking for support
And the cat torturing. He never mentioned the cat torturing.
Conclusion: Your post is F.U.D.
Or it's a post of someone with MS mindset.
Percival Lowell and Clive Tombaugh.
Seriously citation needed. I can't imagine people in 1930 being as keen on backronyms as people are today.
Do we have those logs of DIck Cheney's "extensive discussions" with the oil lobby just before WMD were detected in Iraq? I don't think the efforts to drill through the stonewall around those meetings ever came to anything?
These discussions are always food for laughter and desperation for the civilian population; just recently there was a dump whereby "Red Button" Hillary just wanted to bomb Libya and kill Ghaddafi per fas et nefas while the Pentagon and Hagel said "please don't it will cause problems". It did.
Will a raid now be performed on politician's private suites? How about we shut the money-printing ECB with all the employees inside and then we pop it with a few 155mm packages? No? Then the primary problems will remain. And they will blow up in our faces sooner rather than later.
"Banks such as HSBC have created a system for making themselves rich at the expense of society, by assisting in tax evasion and money laundering,"
It's a bank, man. That is the only actor in the economy who can legallly do with your money what it damn well pleases - in particular, give to to other people and pretend it didn't. See also: Bank Run.
have been subject to MC/DC and full code coverage testing
Show that this kind of dead chicken waving would have detected the error. MC/DC testing is voodoo from a prior age at the best of times. Indeed, this paper says: "We believe that the rigor of the MC/DC metric is highly sensitive to the structure of the implementation and can therefore be misleading as a test adequacy criterion.". In other words: Your MC/DC testing value depends on how you write your program, i.e. on syntax. Ouch.
On the ISS? I hope that little device has ECC RAM (or at least a memory page hashsum check algorithm)?
Morlocks heart the RasPi2
And of course the difference is not between "conscious" and "non-conscious" observers but between massive and small systems.
It makes for some good story-telling though. Anyone read Greg Egan's "Quarantaine"?
No, this works only for very small cats.
This is a nice experimental trick though: 1) Measure small cat, capturing cat state is a qubit 2) Do not extract classical YES/NO from qubit just move it around a bit 3) Reinject qubit into small cat system 4) Small cat STAYS unmeasured!
Yes, by nature of its massive size. Basically, the cat system observes the nuclear decay in the same way as the LHC detector observes the beam pipe: The superposition of states deep down will causally entail large changes in the macro objects (dead cats or energy changes in calorimeters). How this exactly selects the state of the micro system is not entirely clear but there are some sound mathematical approaches for dealing with this, maybe along these lines.
This sounds like a "null experiment": Testing that things we suspect are true are actually true.
After all, the whole attempt at building quantum computers is based on the idea that the complex-valued probability density function is an element of a (non-classical) reality, which we are going to damn well exploit the fuck out of.
The system's absence of a classical state before measurement (i.e. before extraction of a few classical bits) clearly follows in the footsteps of Anton Zeilinger's GHZ states, which I frankly can't remember the details of.
“we can't easily simulate quantum systems on a classical computer.”
Indeed so. You can do it, but with exponential slowdown. And not for continuous systems. The question of whether a continuous wave function even exists in nature is open and will probably remain so forever, after all you cannot measure it.
Please explain. One can only see through the prism of ingrained assumptions which both fade and become more categorical as one ages.
So, the rumor that the Wachowski brothers only made one movie ever will be cemented?
Pretty sure you can produce He in nuclear reactors, too, cracking Li for example.
You now realize that Philip K. Dick actually saw reality as it really is.
UBIK beer, what else!
You forgot "Trust the Computer".
Take AK-103 with canned beans and grass, go inna woods.
(But then they will Ruby Ridge you and get away with it. There really is no escape.)
Otto is a fool, who doesn't seem to have the slightest knowledge of the situation at all.
This is the internet, man. Scrambled eggs are expected.
HAVE A BANANA!
From the other side this time?

If the Barney and Betty Hill drawing interpretation as the solar neighborhood is right, surprises await!

ISO 27001. ISO 9000 is for hotel and canteen management.
I have no idea how to apply it. Neither do the Big Taxpayer-Funded Institutions guys I sometimes meet and who are supposed to implement that at said Big Taxpayer-Funded Institutions. I suppose having the licence to ignore details when you have a folder stack of ISO docs and a cozy office must be bliss and heaven.
It's not working by itself, no need to repeal.
I think it is safe to assume that.
I have also noticed that Firefox updates, then tells you in no uncertain terms that it has disabled the previously-known-as-fixed version of Flash. Pretty slick.

Yeah, I suppose "Cameron" is not to the right of that.

...and PUTIN. Don't forget PUTIN. And moot.
Ike doesn't suspect half of it!
Actually the latest story is that evolutionary experimentation was greatly facilitated by a couple of passages through "snowball earth" type environments where formerly connected environments where disconnected and sealed off for a few 100'000 years, then reconnected as the snowball thawed?

RON PAUL DOOM LEVEL 6: "IT'S HAPPENING"
As soon as you can go to next 7/11 and bring back a thermos of compressed time.
Atlantis was Antarctica because 10000 years ago it was on the equator.
Yeah, no man.
I think you missed this by a few orders of magnitude.
Your geology degree must be stamped "university of life".
Unlikely. In the cosmic scheme, these are very very very very faint.
And a nuclear war is over very quickly.
Or they run out of steam before doing anything serious. Space travel is hard.
But this universe seems to be made to order as a petri-dish to run a large-scale experiment about overcoming various obstacles to survival using genetic algorithms evolving from the ground up in a reduced (but with small h-bar) physical setting. If Earth doesn't manage, I am sure others will.
Unless new macro-physics exists (i.e. Laurent Nottale has actually something good, not sure whether his stuff makes sense) or there are unexpected effects regarding the final state of an energy-losing system of multiple gravitating bodies (I remember some interesting macro effects in large scale simulations - galaxy sized - which were not readily explained)
Sagan sighs. “Okay, play it your way.” He closes his menu. “Ready to order?”
“I believe so.” Gregor looks at him. “The spaghetti al’ polpette is really good here,” he adds.
“Really?” Sagan smiles. “Then I’ll try it.”
They order, and Gregor waits for the waiter to depart before he continues. “Suppose there’s an alien race out there. More than one. You know about the multiple copies of Earth. The uninhabited ones. We’ve been here before. Now let’s see…suppose the aliens aren’t like us. Some of them are recognizable, tribal primates who use tools made out of metal, sea-dwelling ensemble entities who communicate by ultrasound. But others–most of them–are social insects who use amazingly advanced biological engineering to grow what they need. There’s some evidence that they’ve colonized some of the empty Earths. They’re aggressive and territorial and they’re so different that…well, for one thing we think they don’t actually have conscious minds except when they need them. They control their own genetic code and build living organisms tailored to whatever tasks they want carrying out. There’s no evidence that they want to talk to us, and some evidence that they may have emptied some of those empty Earths of their human population. And because of their, um, decentralized ecosystem and biological engineering, conventional policy solutions won’t work. The military ones, I mean.”
Gregor watches Sagan’s face intently as he describes the scenario. There is a slight cooling of the exobiologist’s cheeks as his peripheral arteries contract with shock: his pupils dilate and his respiration rate increases. Sour pheromones begin to diffuse from his sweat ducts and organs in Gregor’s nasal sinuses respond to them.
“You’re kidding?” Sagan half-asks. He sounds disappointed about something.
“I wish I was.” Gregor generates a faint smile and exhales breath laden with oxytocin and other peptide messengers fine-tuned to human metabolism. In the kitchen, the temporary chef who is standing in for the regular one–off sick, due to a bout of food poisoning–will be preparing Sagan’s dish. Humans are creatures of habit: once his meal arrives the astronomer will eat it, taking solace in good food. (Such a shame about the chef.) “They’re not like us. SETI assumes that NHIs are conscious and welcome communication with humans and, in fact, that humans aren’t atypical. But let’s suppose that humans are atypical. The human species has only been around for about a third of a million years, and has only been making metal tools and building settlements for ten thousand. What if the default for sapient species is measured in the millions of years? And they develop strong defense mechanisms to prevent other species moving into their territory?”
Oxygen works like hard dope on the lizard overlords controlling the politic-pods. Nothing else occurring in parliament makes sense.
Two of these hapless suspects confessed to crimes which the National Police Agency was later obligated to omit they had no involvement.
Standard operating procedure over there, I hear.
Companies are required by law in most places to maximise profits
Maybe in Zimbabwe.
The AFP's systems, he said, simply aren't configured to report the association between “metadata” and eventual convictions.
Because once the Ministry of Surveillance has flagged a potential problem, and the perp is dragged to the Ministry of Love for debriefing with no further ado, but traces of this chain of action are not kept for later compilation into glossy reports?
Wait, didn't there used to be a legal process somewhere in there before the 21st century?
Looks like China's economy collapse is approaching at flank speed.
Is this like politicians affirming that a 2% tax hike will cost the economy only 2 billion over 10 years instead of the 100+ billion that it really does when all the investments, now forever unseen, are conveniently forgotten?
Now that the US is gearing up to send small arms and Javelin missiles to our Wolfsangel-decorated newfound but discombobulated ukrainian friends to counter "russian agression", the Sony hack MUST ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN PUTIN!
Holy damn, there are not enough random events to hang onto Norks, Putin, Iranians, ISIS, Chinese, Ghaddafi types, whistleblowers and other enemies-du-jour.
WHAT DO! !
Well, the CIA is pretty good in false flag operations and Radio Gleiwitz-like events. Have at it!
