"Pirates of the Carribean" was not that long ago?
I remember this but I don't remember the laughing.
Was pretty serious.
"[the] Director was referring to the UK being a world leader in [cryptography] in its own right, in that we do not need to depend on other countries, whether state or industry, to have this capability."
Mathematics works the same (and possibly even better) in the cindery remains of the British Empire?
Greg Egan may have been up to something with "Luminous" (1998).
"Basically his organs were shutting down."
Gotta play louder then.
We could actually fuel about 1/10 of the Iraq war with that. THINK ABOUT THIS! 10% FREE WAR!!!
Well, you can have money going into actual productive investments instead but who wants that? Today, we can just print up the stuff, right?
KEYNES WAS RIGHT! No wait, then we wouldn't need tax collectors either. Ermm...
That's positively STEAMPUNK!
But what if they transfer their ill-gotten gains directly to charity?
Eh, eh? Answer me that!
...and then you hire Kissinger!

That sure is some crazy Pham Nuwen stuff. But why not?
Actually a good argument for mandatory voting: You know when a fat percentage of votes has dropped off a lorry or a new box has been "discovered" on the way from the voting office in the trunk of the governor's BMW.
Of course, one could also track them easily with numbered (non-counterfeitable) seals. What's good for your water counter should be good for the ballot box.
they're a bit slack
Like in "all the bits are hanging out and the tech ain't helping while suspiciously many people are observing street pigeons, whistling"?
With some luck this ain't gonna result in a Raymond Lemme surprise "suicide". To quote Chris Floyd "Local police ruled that Lemme, a happily married man eagerly planning his daughter's wedding, had suddenly decided to slash his wrists."
That was the meta-exit right there.
Yeah. Our TV had pushbuttons of the quality used today to launch ICBMs.
SCHZLACK! SCHZLACK! BZZZZTT. "Fuck you, antenna!!!!"
Java is the devil's work in C's braces.
But the GC is nice.
But the Guardian says it's "ENGROSSING" (don't they mean "engorging"?)
Though I don't know what about Office Sluts & Fat Guys could ever be eng.rw...whatever.
Also, the MSF hospital bombing was an ACCIDENT, m'kay?

But what about memory bandwidth?
Post eagle images!
This is the Internet.
I remember the M16 underbarrel launcher also being used in Luc Besson's "Nikita" (was he the first to introduce Rabid Urchin Girls With Unlimited Guns (RUGWUG)?) but the grenade that goes with it didn't look right at all and was front-loaded. I don't think so.
(Additionally, the back-then rather futuristic looking Steyr AUG was shown with a silver finish like something out of "Barbarella" and was used for sniping instead of a proper sniper rifle ... WHY)
That's what that literally unhinged robot doge is for, isn't it?
It's a prop.
I have also not heard that you can leave out a part of arthmetics and still get a meaningful complete set of operations.
In logic, you may disallow the law of the excluded middle / double negation to get intuitionstic logic from classical one, but stil...
Of course it's not absolutely necessary. But it's definitely a strong indicator that sciency and engineering stuff is not for you and you may want to go into sociology, comparative literature or opening a hamburger stand.

USENET CANCEL MESSAGES! THEY WERE A THING, ONCE.
That he's essentially circulating a wild conspiracy theory makes it even harder.
Drop the "wild", and reformulate "conspiracy theory" to "warning about trivial exploits" and we are getting there.
We are talking US, here. This is the country that has discovered a "college rape" epidemy recently.

Under "We Came, We Saw, He Died" Hillary, the "Pivot to Asia" has a chance of getting red glowing hot.
And wrecking CVNs in the China Sea is like shredding gold-backed banknotes under a cold shower...
I agree with boltar on this, but the proof is in the
Mindless dedication enabled by free money can accomplish a lot of things that to an external observer might look like intelligent beings were at work.
King Tut, eh? Do we know each other from Zürich, circa early 90s?
I do think it would be more expedient if WE fucked them?

I can only imagine these cars magically load burnable and BURN IT stuff WHILE-U-DRIVE!
Next: Dihydrogen monoxide holocaust!!! Mufti of Jerusalem consulted VW engineers etc.
Somebody has something to say about that:
These engineers have their hands in EVERYTHING!
It may be true but it would not be the "lowly engineers" but the guys sitting in on board decision, as The War Street Journal writes.
The two men, Ulrich Hackenberg, Audi ’s chief engineer, and Wolfgang Hatz, developer of Porsche’s Formula One and Le Mans racing engines, were among the engineers suspended in the investigation of the emissions cheating scandal that sank the company’s market value by 43% since Sept. 18 and triggered a world-wide recall to refit the engines to meet clear-air standards, these people said.
Mr. Winterkorn became chief executive and put Messrs. Hackenberg and Hatz in charge of the Volkswagen R&D group and engine development. The two engineers had worked together devising new Volkswagen cars during the critical years when the vehicle maker struggled to develop diesel engines to conform to tough U.S. nitrogen oxide emissions standards.
Months later, in August 2007, Volkswagen canceled the licensing deal for BlueTec with Daimler because it didn’t want to use its competitor’s brand. It rebranded the company’s diesel engine TDI—for turbocharged direct injection.

Ninja is the uncertainty if I really existed in Tokogawa Era Japan at all
Yeah right. As if deniable black ops "dirty tricks" operators would not have been a money-making full-time skill in an period of internecine warlord management. Especially one full of idiots who have their heads turned sideways due to some perverse cultural norms about honour.
Crap untyped Scripting languages make spotting implementation mistakes hard.
Yes. But nobody is using dependently typed programming languages, or even simply typed functional ones (Standard ML for example). And then you get weirdos complaining about garbage collection like it's 1970s.
This industry is still drawing pentagrams around dead chickens.
"It has to be 100% compatible with every single C compiler on the planet, because they're all going to compile it."
Oh wait. Sarcasm.
> Way to prove you have no idea what you're yapping about. Any chance of you not commenting on articles/comments about C with your usual drivel now?

Also, who has talked about "hardcoding"?
> You just wiped out most of the astrophysics community.
Yeah, I have seen those kind of "writing" by a PhD student.
1) Borrow olden code in FORTRAN to do fluid dynamics around a blackhole
2) Not sure what it does, how to call it but it fits right in where I have these call parameter things. Also runs well on the basement vector processor (remember this was a bit earlier in my career)
3) Produces pretty graphs which look good on the projector. "Nobody else will use it anyway"
Next grad student will pick up the code at 4)
Microsoft astroturfing has seen better days.
That "Free Windows Upgrade" also sounds a lot like Money Printing: Nobody wants it except some suited guys in a boardroom who have decided to not invest into much effort into getting richer, it is sold as an improvement and a great idea ("20+ totally wrecked economies since 1920 can't be wrong!!"), it gives everyone a hard time and fucks up people whose remaining lifespan is too short to reinvent themselves yet another time.
Yeah I don't know why in this New Millenium "*advertising" is automatically labeled as "perfectly legitimate". It is not and the people who come up with this sort of crap should have their jaw rearranged by Boris the Russian Jail Warden.
