Is the prison-industrial complex posting here?
I find the permanent call for "jail time for company execs" for weak security awareness (a sort of disciplinary bulverism) in this here venue both obnoxious and moronic. Stop it.

No-one even got killed.
Meanwhile the US has offed quite a few tens of thousands of Iraqis/Afghanis and continues to seek "regime change" in Syria by getting in bed with Saudi Arabia and other ISIS enablers. Well, the put some effort into it recently and sent 45 "moderate rebels" to Syria, who then get promply pwned by the Nusra front.
Give me 10 Putin instead of 1 Team America.
In one instance he probed Ankara regarding what it knew of the movement of Russian fighters to Syria, according to the research.
Hold on, there are "Russian fighters in Syria"? When? Why?? Unless these are irate jihadis from Chechnya.
Couldn't the US just retire from that bullshit "IT" thing? They are no longer able to handle it, politically or technically. Or mentally.
ISTR from my readingof Groklaw over the years that MS was behind the SCO farce.
Only tangentially. That guy from SCO (Daryl McBride I presume) wrecked the company all by himself.

Could be you are the guy with the Totenkopf-adorned General's cap, in which case, apologies.
Jesus Christ these people are utter scum, fecking telemarketers of crap memes.
Fuck your "energy", when you die it's not departure, your energy is transformed into low-grade heat. This has been known for a long time.
Give him a free ride to Syria.
Geek thanks I have been stressing whatever remains of my liver with the best the no-yet-muslim-and-affiliated-alcophobics world has on offer!
How about "The Road Ahead"?
It's pretty ok actually but the Microsoft-specific text formatting which interworks with nothing and uncopyable text in the most impossible places (like, IN THE ADDRESSBOOK, HMMMNNNNN!!?) really riles me up a bit.
Software is the only product that you buy broken and then have to pay a periodic fee to get it fixed gradually
I know a few vendors who will sell you software that has a fat chance of being "not broken", for some collaboratively agreed-on values of "not broken". The downside is that is rather simplistic and won't fullfill desires for glitz and swag. And unless you are a Known Name, your VISA card is not going to take the price tag either.
"Crack shot or not"
Do I sense innuendo?
Copy and paste messages like this every time you make an email and cell phone call, will plug up the system and neuter those seeking to data mine the communications networks.
Ah. something like this.
There used to be an Emacs plugin for Usenet posting back when the two Kevins were a thing, but I can't remember (ruffles around in Phrack magazine archive... dissociated press? no that's not it)
Well, I didn't find it but I found this in 1996
Catching glimpses of shadowy enemies at every turn, (crying CIA guy) Deutch characterized them (hackers) as operating from the deep cover of classified programs in pariah states. Truck bombs aimed at the telephone company, electronic assaults by "paid hackers" are likely to be part of the arsenal of anyone from the Lebanese Hezbollah to "nameless . . . cells of international terrorists such as those who attacked the World Trade Center." ... Restated, intelligence director Deutch pronounced in June there was classified evidence that hackers are in league with Libya and Iran and that countries around the world are plotting plots to attack the U.S. through information warfare. But the classified data is and was, at best, anecdotal gossip -- hearsay, bullshit -- assembled by perhaps a handful of individuals working haphazardly inside the labyrinth of the intelligence community. There is no real threat assessment to back up the Deutch claims. Can anyone say _bomber gap_?
Oh yeah. T'was ever thus. And China was not yet on the USAsian map ...
2) The paranoia of The X Files for example was not generated from thin air; it was an expression of the general feeling that there were things going on in deep state that were not kosher at all. The bizarre wheelings and dealings and civil liberty infringements of the Clinton years were like a rash slowly breaking out.
3) I don't know whether ECHELON was involved into 9/11 but there definitely was failure of TLAs to "connect the dots" apparently more due to careerism and internal interference running than anything else. But there was also bizarre distraction noise generated by Israeli services just prior to 9/11, and we would like to read the 28 pages indeed.
4) The "regime change in Syria" omnishambles is typical for modern governmental action. Plus currently the US is playing Al Qaeda's airforce in Yemen (for the Saudi friends) while NATO-alley Turkey is supporting ISIS to "abrade" the Kurds. It will get worse. Don't get me started on the Ukraine direct-to-video bullshit.
Nuke icon because that's we are moving towards.

You can go to The Intercept, there are links at the article end. For what it's worth.
You can now go back to watching NAVY CSI arsehattery.

Power is power. That's good enough.
I find powerful operators also grabbing the millions as a side-dish just disgusting.

Range's ousting functions to calm the grumbling masses who want to see "justice served" for the attack on freedom of press but fail to realize the big picture which happens to be much more ugly.
Frankyl I still don't see what you are alluding to. A conspiracy that failed and therefore is hiding a BIGGER consipracy?
But that's the whole point of separation of powers: no one branch of government can go it alone, and if one does get out of line it's the responsibility of one of the others to stop it
But ... isn't the prosecutor is part of the executive branch (that's what he is: the attack dog of the executive). So if the minister reins him in isn't this entirely appropriate? Otherwise how could the justice minister fire the dude?
It sounds to me that this "separation of power" talk is so much waahambulance stupidity.

Well, as interest is verboten, medieval-style (money has no price in Islam by decree, while the West tries to kill the price by printing money) there may not be much to do. One would have to expand into camel management and "interest-replacing-services".

Stop smoking crack or you will see FEMA trailers rolling to all-american GAS CHAMBERS in no time. I grant you that there is dangerous talk of randomly starting a war with Iran or concentrating mooslims in merica into camps.

If you wanted to have Firefox in the first place, you have enough sophistication and Google-fu to switch back to it, should you want to.

1) Is it a robot? It rather looks like a device able to move 4 pieces of preformed wire ... in the same class as a stapler, which is not a robot.
2) Why do today's videos always have that infuriating Hollywood-slice-of-life-comedy-style background music? One always expects being forced to watch a fat guy falling downstairs or a baby in a "cute" situation in the next second.
